I imagine your padded cell is pretty comfy and soothing by now.

My fave cartoon character when I was a kid, was Bugs Bunny.

Two weeks again!
The BEST news right after your colonoscopy is “You’re finished with your colonoscopy”!

This thread has been pretty quiet lately.

That's because no one wants to play this stupid game.

It's starting to get cooler here, and we never got the high temperatures we were expecting.

You actually believe the weather service, do you? Why am I not surprised.


I enjoy this game. I just didn't want it to be me that killed another thread.

If the worse that happens to you today is "I killed a Straight Dope thread," you have nothing to complain about.

I hope Hurricane Dorian doesn't hit New Jersey.

Blaugghh. Soon you’ll regale with announcing all of your bodily needs... shaving, tooth picking, toenail clipping, defecating...spare us!

...equal skin cancer, diabetes, and flash floods. Way to post something incredibly insensitive when Florida is bracing for a devastating hurricane, which just destroyed two Bahamian islands. Schmuck.

Nothing wrong with that. Cheetos are delicious. Are you implying otherwise? Are you trying to attack me personally with that comment? Shame on you.

Well, duh, it's one of the great movie classics. Do you really think we're that stupid? Jerk.

I've really got to start watching all these DVDs I've collected.

Yes, were all soooo impressed that you own Ernest Goes To Camp, Madea Goes To Jail, and Slutty Sorority Girls II: Getting The ASS-ociates Degree.

Running with a fun group tonight.

As Tom Paxton put it: 25 laps around the pond will make us tall and slim and blond. May I ad: NOT

Last night's bus was right on time and got me to my town very quickly.

Yeah sure. Keep telling yourself that, after visiting them in that dump you call a nursing home. “We’re fine son,” sitting in diapers in bed 24/7, “Just... fine.”

My wife went to visit our sister-in-law, who is recovering after a stroke, to give her care and encouragement.

Did...you just compare your daughter to a hog? Father of the Year, right there!

"Shoat" is an archaic word for a young pig.

I can't believe you would be so shallow. Oh, wait, I can believe that.

Do I really want to watch this DVD left at my door by religious loonies?

Not all religious believers who leave DVDs at your door are loonies.

Now that mornings are cooler, my early morning walk is such a joy.

Stealth-bragging that you get up early, eh? That sort of valorization of sleep deprivation is unhealthy. I suppose youre also proud of your anorexia and MDMA addiction, too?

According to the National Weather Service, gonna be sweltering all week, sigh.

You didn’t mention the lice and the roaches. Your house and garden must be a veritable dungheap! Clean all the crap and garbage up, for Chrissake!

We all know what "help treating her husband" means. Did he consider your "help" a "treat"?

No crazies in my checkout line at work last night!

Do you have any idea the backbreaking labor of millions of Chinese laborers across the PDRC go through to pick the billions of leaves needed just so you can drink a damn cup of green tea and support the green tea industry. But do you care? Do you give a damn? No!
Oh and the honey. Bees are dying across the globe. Like you care.

Happy to be alive.
