xoxoxoBruce 10-18-2015 04:23 PM

I knew those damn squirrels are dangerous, second only to bunnies. :yesnod:

BigV 10-19-2015 02:02 PM

At least the bunnies are now actually clothed... :(

Gravdigr 10-19-2015 03:00 PM

If that's a reference to Playboy no longer doing nakedness...That shit ain't funny, man!:mad:

BigV 10-19-2015 03:24 PM

Agreed.

xoxoxoBruce 10-19-2015 04:07 PM

You know, the announcement surprised and annoyed me. For a magazine I haven't bought for probably 40 years. I haven't even seen it except for extremely rare occasions, so why should I care?

Because it's change, destroying the touchstones, the guideposts, the common references to the past. Damn money grubbin' whippersnappers. :crone:

Wait, wut?

Playboy doesn't do nudes now?

Clodfobble 10-20-2015 01:09 AM

They've been trying to convert to a semi-legitimate online entertainment/news source for awhile now (on par with vox.com, perhaps.) I'm sure magazine sales have dwindled to almost nothing with all the online porn available, so they're probably right to go this different route to keep the company alive.

glatt 10-20-2015 08:51 AM

An article I saw said that a very significant source of their income was licensing their logo in China and other countries that never had the actual magazine but that somehow know about it and want their Playboy baseball caps.

They lose money on the actual magazine.

Rudy's has closed for the season. So sad.

Gravdigr 11-03-2015 06:00 PM

Fargon, did you recognize that Rudy's as your's?

That's kinda weird. Cuz it is yours.

The guy in the pink shirt should probably stick to eating berber. Whole Lotta fluff going on in that belly. Maybe he's preggers.

There are two oil stains that match each other, but one is 10 inches closer to the curb. The same car visits that spot.

and what's that massive stain where a driver's door would be?

Blood. Don't park there.

xoxoxoBruce 01-20-2016 07:37 PM

Actually it is a disability, but not one that qualifies for handicap parking. ;)

My story of those signs is that the road is still under construction, but about to be completed. The workers installed the permanent white sign and paused to take a picture before taking down the temporary orange one. That's my story.

Gravdigr 02-05-2016 03:12 PM

That story is worse than the Richard Trethewey story...:p:

Happy Monkey 02-05-2016 03:20 PM

It's a T-intersection. You're not allowed to turn left. Cars can come from both directions. Cars coming from the right can't go straight, but cars coming from the left can.

lumberjim 02-05-2016 07:22 PM

Simple

xoxoxoBruce 02-05-2016 08:15 PM

And if you're slow figuring it out, DO NOT park in everybody's way. :haha:

Don't laugh you may be next.

Gravdigr 02-10-2016 01:57 PM

Word.

Don't laugh a whole lot anymore, not worried on that score...

glatt 02-10-2016 02:19 PM

What happens to laughter? I don't laugh much anymore either.

Is laughter tied to novelty and things just aren't as novel as you age?

Gravdigr 02-10-2016 04:20 PM

I think laughter goes to the same place that gray hair comes from.

Clodfobble 02-10-2016 04:34 PM

I very actively seek out laughter. It's a big part of why I started doing the open mics. Yeah, it's attention, but it's also an excuse to attend a free comedy show on a regular basis. But even beyond that, a drama has to be extraordinary before it gets on my queue, whereas a comedy can be middling at best and I'll still watch it if I get 2-3 small laughs over the course of 30 minutes.

I used to. Now, not so much.

That makes me sad to hear. I don't have any handy advice, either. More thought required.

Undertoad 02-10-2016 05:38 PM

Here, try some Maria Bamford that just came out

This is literally the only thing I've ever laughed out loud at in over 40 years of Prairie Home Companion. She crushed it. Never mind the lame audience


glatt 02-10-2016 07:33 PM

Ok. That WAS funny. I laughed out loud at least 5 times. Especially the song about therapy.

Carruthers 02-11-2016 05:33 AM

It speaks for itself, really.

I can't imagine life without laughter. I seek humor in everything. pisses the oncologist off no end -he has NO sense of humor AT ALL. Imagine if it was a requirement for passing the board :D

Literally thirty seconds into that I could take the breathy, low impact, soft, PHC-style of speaking no longer. Nothing against PHC, but, anyone but Keillor sounds like they're trying way too hard to do it.
