Sight-seeing bucket list.
Anyone else not a big fan of travel?


Yes. So much I do not have a "sight-seeing bucket list."

Spin around in that baby a few times a day, and the pounds will melt right off.

What's the original Anglo-Saxon word for "penis"?


No matter what you call it, it still can't regrow. Although I guess that depends on what you mean by "regrow".

How easy is it for lawyers to 'grab' other lawyer's clients?


Lawyers generally swoop down from above with talons at the ready, but they can sometimes make a grab from a running start.

I gotta admit, I can't fathom people watching the DISH network's Adult Pledge of Allegiance channel. Even with full frontal nudity it gets boring after awhile.

What do you consider a hobby?

Every weekend I like to put in a few hours installing new knobs in my sub.

The only object Jesus made was a whip?
Would this be considered tax evasion?


"And Jesus went into the temple of Big Government, and cast out all them that harassed honest patriots with garnishments and liens, and overthrew the desks of the I.R.S. agents, and the seats of them that sold payment plans, And said unto them, It is written, You will collect nothing in my house; but get out ye den of thieves."

Alternatives to buying Greenland

Cats


Yes, rather than trying to buy Greenland, we should try to persuade The Orange One to invest in Cats.

Unlike Greenland, cats are definitely for sale. They're much more cuddly and warm that Greenland. Their purchase is not controversial. This might even get people to like him more.

In any case, Trump is the first president in umpteen years who doesn't own a dog*. He needs a White House pet.*




*Your political joke goes here.
