Sexy Bert! :lol:

. . . I love it when men take the "sexy" costumes and the women wear something equally unexpected.

A friend of mine once answered the door at his own party dressed as "Sexy Lincoln" (stovepipe top hat, excellent [real] beard, a vest, fancy underpants, sock garters and socks, IIRC) and stayed in character the whole time. Tucked his finger into his mouth like a pin-up girl for photos. It was awesome.

I just got a message on my cell phone from National Car Rental in San Francisco. I thought I lost my sunglasses in September of 2011 when I returned my car after the burn. Michelle is calling me back 15 months later to tell me they didn't find them.
Thank you National for your prompt attention! :roll:

It really is turtles all the way down.
A full blown Conspiracy Junkie lambasting a New Age Wacko for channelling a sociopath.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any stranger, we now have “Dr.” Psycho-shrink Rima Laibow declaring in a PUBLIC VIDEO that “she is Sandy-Hook Shooter Adam Lanza’s Doctor”. Not only that, Laibow the wacko tells you with a straight face that she “held Adam’s mother Nancy in her arms” and “comforted her.” HOW SWEET, and HOW TOUCHING – all designed of course to preach from her cointelpro bully pulpit against vaccines and SSRI mind-altering drugs. WOW!


WOW! indeed

Never seen that one before.
I only ever got one "Nigerian" email, and it was from the Cote D'Ivoire. A 24 year old female university student needed help getting her inheritance money and my wisdom regarding investment advice as she considered herself naive, and she wanted to come stay with me while this happened. So there.
Unfortunately, I was too busy. If she'd been inheriting a hardware store, or a brewery, or both!, then maybe I'd have made the time...

FRANCE: Paris may be the city of love but don’t think you can get carried away on the journey — in France it is illegal to kiss on railways.

Touching a woman’s bottom is also off limits on Paris’s Metro underground system — but, weirdly, touching their breasts is allowed.

ITALY: In a nation of Romeos, it is NOT illegal to pinch a girl’s bottom.

so it is kinda a WTF.
ok Say you were visiting a remote part of your state 5 counties away and you had some brake problems that made you emergency park your Bus in the trees. the Sheriff comes by to make sure you are not hurt and wants to check your paper work. but finding your licences is impossible with all the mess of the crash inside the bus. So you are told to get the Licence # to the Sheriffs office ASAP and promptly forget. then a year and half goes by and one night while answering questions about being slightly drunk in public to a police officer You are told you have a warrant out for your arrest, and sends you to jail, 2 weeks latter that jail sends you 5 counties away. 2 weeks latter the judge of that counties finally has you in court to ask you where you drivers licence is and when he receives it says. "Hey this stories sounds familiar" , So i say "Yeah I was here in jail about it last year!" and he says "yeah here's all the paperwork about it but no licence# We'll let you go! sorry about that. oh, and you owe $100 for the booking fee but I'll just cancel that as you've been so inconvenienced."

Am I the only one who is questioning this????
Why "24"? Not 20, 25, 30???

Besides - of course - the confusion, AND EXTRA REVENUE created when drivers assume that it means "24 HOUR" ?!?!?!?
