A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course became confused as to where he was on the course. Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him.
He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing. "I'm on the 7th hole," she replied, "and you are a hole behind me. So you must be on the 6th hole." He thanked her and went back to his golf.
On the back nine, the same thing happened and he approached her again with the same request.
"I'm on number 14, and you're still a hole behind, so you must be on the 13th hole." Once again he thanked her and returned to his play.
He finished his round and went to the clubhouse where he saw the same lady sitting at the end of the bar. He asked the bartender if he knew the lady. The bartender said that she was a sales lady and played the course often.
He approached her and said, "Let me buy you a drink in appreciation for your help. I understand that you're in the sales profession. I'm in sales also. What do you sell?"
"I'll tell you, but you're going to laugh," she replied. "No, I won't." "Well, if you must know," she answered, "I work for Tampax."
With that, he laughed so hard he lost his balance and fell off the bar stool.
"See," she said. "I knew you'd laugh!" "That's not what I'm laughing at," he replied, "I'm a salesman for Preparation H, so I'm still a hole behind you."

So what exactly is the deal with dubs that every man, woman, and grandpa feel the need to trick out their rides with oversized rims no matter how hideous they may look? Chrysler 300's, Cadillac Escalades and Yukon Denali's seem to be the usual culprits. Has anyone seen a Cadillac Escalade out there that rides on anything less than 22's?
Don't get me wrong, I'm a big proponent of aftermarket rims having purchased the first set of wheels for my 1991 Honda civic at a whopping 14" back in 1992. I eventually replaced those with a set of 15's and then the elusive 16's, 3 sizes larger than the original stockers. This was a big deal at the time as wheel customization was certainly in its infancy during the early 90's. Anyone with aftermarket rims was part of an underground culture and you certainly felt as if your ride was unique from a stock car.
I'm not sure what's happened in the past few years but somehow it's acceptable for 65 year old retirees to have chrome spinners on their caddy's. How about that grocery getting soccer mom with 20's on that Magnum of hers? For all the old school guys out there like me, it's time to dust off those 14's in our garages and bring this shiznit back to the streets.

The daughter pointed to its penis and asked, "What's that?"
The mother said, "That's something boys have and girls don't."
Her daughter said, "But I want one."
Wanting to end the conversation as quickly as possible, the mother said, "Well, if you're a good girl you'll get one when you grow up."
Her daughter asked, "And what if I'm bad?"
A security guard who overheard the conversation mumbled, "Then you'll get lots of them!"

A Greek and an Irishman were sitting in a Starbuck's discussing who had the superior culture.
Over triple lattes the Greek says "Well, we Greeks built the Parthenon."
The Irishman replies, "Well, it was the Irish who discovered the summer and winter solstices."
The Greek retorts, "We Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics."
The Irishman, nodding in agreement, says, "The Irish were the ones who built the first timepieces and calendars."
And so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion. With a flourish of finality he says, "The Greeks were the ones who invented sex!"
The Irishman replies, "Indeed, 'tis true but it was we Irish who introduced it to women."

An Egg McMuffin Chicken Sandwich. But you can only order Egg McMuffins before 11:00AM and Chicken Selects after 11:00AM. Well, there is this little space of time where you can order both and combine them into a McDonald's Brunch Sandwich.
I would like to see them add a hashbrown patty into the sandwich to make it the ultimate sandwich.

"Jumping the Shark" is a phrase used to describe that a TV show has passed its peak with ridiculous plotlines. The origins of this phrase came from Happy Days, when the Fonz was wearing swim trunks and his leather jacket, jumps over a shark while water skiing.
Now after the release of the latest Indiana Jones movie, there is a new phrase, "Nuked the Fridge." This is a result of the scene when Indiana Jones finds himself at ground zero at a nuclear test site and slips into a fridge. Miraculously, Indiana Jones survives.
So, start using the phrase "Nuked the Fridge" at least once during your day today.
