  1. When I build a new house I'm going to find the guy that installed these windows and hire him to install mine.
  2. Okay. 3 pound Tomahawk. Whatchu gonna do? That's big enough to use as a weapon if needed. As Robin Williams said, "I'm waiting with a worm on my tongue" (baited breath).
  3. And people doubt the veracity of the Press!
  4. I came across a good example where some wit took the disease du jour in the US and replaced the "M" with a "D" and made it into a tee-shirt. I can't post it here or the thought police would be on me like white on rice, but use your imaginations and then Google it.
  5. I thought this deserved a thread of its own. Feel free to add any you come across or make yourself.

The Washington Post's Style Invitational also asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are this year's winners: 1. Bozone (N.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future. 2. Foreploy (V): Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid. 3.

Decafalon (N.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you. 11. Glibido (V): All talk and no action. 12.

  6. If it was a fart joke, the horse. Most of them have a sense of humor, usually of the "Made you look" variety.
  7. Don't you love it when everybody gets the joke?
  8. Wow, hibachis have come a long way since I had a little cheap cast iron thingy with a ladder rack in back. In college, maybe? That one and the version with the latching dome look pretty handy.
  9. Wow, you guys have more esoteric tastes than I do. My deep dive into that sort of thing was a '64 International Harvester Scout. Learned how to apply bandaids to skinned knuckles and colorful language learned in the Army to a transfer case. The best I can say is it got you where you wanted to go and always limped home before it broke down (again).
  10. Followed by "Because I said so!"
  11. If Mom ran the State Transportation Department.
  12. I just thought I would share this picture of a mature supercell thunderstorm in Texas. It looks like the sky is exploding and makes me think of the first microsecond of the Big Bang. And Douglas Adams explanation of the Big Bang: "In the beginning there was nothing. Then it blew up."
  13. I have often thought I don't envy parents trying to raise little ones today, but this is a aspect I didn't consider.
  14. There are protest signs and there are all caps PROTEST SIGN!
  15. So, You Really Believed That Stuff They Taught You In The 8th Grade? (Apparently now it's Kindergarten)
  16. Well, going back to basics, I don't know what we're dealing with. Without any pictures you described it as "the smoker' that you got about a year ago. What is it?
  17. A little perspective on a eagle's talons compared to a human hand.
  18. A little follow up to "All Dogs Go to Heaven". They all get to howl at the moon whenever they want.
  19. I don't know, but that description sounds like what I would say when someone kept topping up my wineglass. I'm not sure if there was a question in there or what. But, no, no other ideas than lamb is tricky.
  20. Spuntatura alla Griglia (from 1000 Italian Recipes) 3 garlic cloves finely chopped 1/4 cup olive oil 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper Salt 4 lbs spareribs, cut int0 individual ribs 1 In a shallow dish combine the garlic, oil, rosemary, red pepper and salt to taste. Add the ribs ans stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 3 hour or up to overnight. 2 Preheat the grill and grill the ribs about 6" from the coals turning them frequently, until browned, crisped and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Serve hot.
  21. I would kill for that. Nice looking cook.
  22. Individual ribs let them get a bit of crisp all around each rib and even seasoning around each rib. It's like they do ribs in Italy.
