Good Times




Radio Question of the Day:

27% of women say they'd rather get their wisdom teeth pulled than do this... What is it?
***********************

Talkin’ about questions, this *guy at my church asked some interesting questions recently. Questions like, “These gay immigrants who come here illegally to get abortions. Will a constitutional amendment prevent them from burning the flag?”

Also, “What is a gay marriage band? Why do you need a special band for a gay marriage? Is it a klezmer band? Is it a salsa band?” I told him I think it’s just a band that plays all happy tunes. You know, no sad love songs for a gay wedding.

But he thinks that maybe the reason that gay marriage is a threat to traditional marriage is the better bands. Well, duh. Sad love songs at a wedding are an omen for sure.

He doesn’t limit himself to immigration and gay marriage. He wonders too, “Now that Republicans run literally everything, when will the government start getting smaller? When will it start minding its own business?” I told him, the answer to that is any day now. It’s been only six or so years that they’ve been totally in charge. ‘Course I don’t really believe that. But I’m a Unitarian like him, so I don’t have to believe.

Answer to the Radio Question of the Day:

Shop for a bathing suit. Oh, yeah. I saw that comin’.

I'm so glad you're back - at least - I hope you are! I love that cartoon and I hate shopping for bathing suits too, but I can think of a few more things I'd rather not do if a root canal is involved...LOL

Pat is plenty funny.

"Shop for a bathing suit"? I thought the answer was "Admit they wear size 7 shoes."

I HAVE gotten one of these questions. I hope you live long enough so I can get another.

Thanks to dddragon for the link - he is indeed a funny guy. I loved the cartoon.

AP3 said...

That's pretty funny. I didn't know about Pat.

neva said...

that pat's a funnyfunny fellow!

as for:

"27% of women say they'd rather get their wisdom teeth pulled than do this..." ???

duh...? i, for one, haven't purchased a swim suit in YEARS! at least, not in a store! (no point in exposing anyone to the sight of me traipsing around in a tankini, is there? no, i didn't think so. i'll stick to my old tank suit and running shorts, thankyouverymuch!)

LOVE the cartoon! The Farside has always been one of my ALL-TIME favorites! : D

Bathing suit shopping is pure torture. They should at least have those skinny mirrors so I look thinner when I try them on. Those three-way mirrors let me see my backside in all its glory. It is hideous!

Smaller government?? THAT will be the day!

Peter said...

The gay wedding band is a hoot Lucy, love it.

Fred said...

Great link. It made my day.

I think my three lovely teenage daughters have enough bathing suits for the rest of their lives. They're obviously with the other 73% who have already had their wisdom teeth pulled.

Minka said...

what is wrong with shopping for a bathing suit. I really wanna know!
is it becuase you have to get naked in a tiny room? Seriously, I´d rather shop for a bathign suit than having my wisdom tooth removed. It might be the only sorce of my intellect!

Peter said...

Hi Lucy, just in case you didn't read it Mike's post "Reaver Jordan" was the one I was referring to, but he is usually very funny.

Jon Cox said...

Why would a gay illegal immigrant need an abortion? Unless I am not clear on how one gets pregnant.........

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

LOL...I've missed reading you Tan Lucy...And I didn't see that coming at all about the bathing suits...Frankly, as horrible as trying on Bathing Suits might be...I'll take that any day over Teeth pulling! But that's me.

27% of women would rather have their wisdom teeth removed rather than eat a dinner that their husband's cooked ... (OH NO!!! I think that's just at MY HOUSE!) ~ jb///
