Thursday's Day Off

Thursday's Day Off - 02/06/13 10:26 PM

Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?
- Mork, Mork and Mindy

Two anthropologists fly to the south sea islands to study the natives. They go to two adjacent islands and set to work. A few months later one of them takes a canoe over to the other island to see how his colleague is doing. When he gets there, he finds the other anthropologist standing among a group of natives.

"Greetings! How is it going?" says the visiting anthropologist.

"Wonderful!" says the other, "I have discovered an important fact about the local language! Watch!"

He points at a palm tree and says, "what is that?"
The natives, in unison, say "Umbalo-gong!"
He then points at a rock and says, "and that?"
The natives again intone "Umbalo-gong!"

"You see!", says the beaming anthropologist, "They use the SAME word for 'rock' and for 'palm tree'!"

"That is truly amazing!" says the astonished visiting anthropologist, "On the other island, that same word means 'index finger'!"

The linguist's husband walked in and caught his wife sleeping with a young co-ed.

He said, "Why, Susan, I'm surprised."

She bolted upright, pointed her finger and corrected him, "No. I am surprised. You are astonished."

Those three boys are in the schoolyard bragging of how great their fathers are.

The first one says: "Well, my father runs the fastest. He can fire an arrow, and start to run, I tell you, he gets there before the arrow".

The second one says: "Ha! You think that's fast! My father is a hunter. He can shoot his gun and be there before the bullet".

The third one listens to the other two and shakes his head. He then says: "You two know nothing about fast. My father is a civil servant. He stops working at 4:30 and he is home by 3:45"!!

Don't LOOK at anything in a physics lab.
Don't TASTE anything in a chemistry lab.
Don't SMELL anything in a biology lab.
Don't TOUCH anything in a medical lab.
and, most importantly,
Don't LISTEN to anything in a philosophy department.

The professor of a contract law class asked one of his better students, "If you were to give someone an orange, how would you go about it?"

The student replied, "Here's an orange."

The professor was outraged. "No! No! Think like a lawyer!"

The student then replied, "Okay. I'd tell him `I hereby give and convey to you all and singular, my estate and interests, rights, claim, title, claim and advantages of and in, said orange, together with all its rind, juice, pulp, and seeds, and all rights and advantages with full power to bite, cut, freeze and otherwise eat, the same, or give the same away with and without the pulp, juice, rind and seeds, anything herein before or hereinafter or in any deed, or deeds, instruments of whatever nature or kind whatsoever to the contrary in anywise notwithstanding...'"

You are one of three people on a malfunctioning airplane with only one parachute. How would you react?

Pessimist: you refuse the parachute because you might die on the jump anyway.

Optimist: you refuse the parachute because people have survived crashes just like this before.

Procrastinator: you play a game of Monopoly for the parachute.

Bureaucrat: you order them to conduct a feasibility study on parachute use in multi-engine aircraft under code red conditions.

Computer Scientist: you design a machine capable of operating a parachute as well as a human being could.

Mathematician: you refuse to accept the parachute without proof that it will work in all cases.

Engineer: you make them another parachute out of aisle curtains and dental floss.

Psychoanalyst: you ask them what the shape of a parachute reminds them of.

Doctor: you tell them you need to run more tests, then take the parachute in order to make your next appointment.

Lawyer: you charge one parachute for helping them sue the airline.

Judge: after reminding them of their constitutional right to have a parachute, you take it and jump out.

Economist: your only rational and moral choice is to take the parachute, as the free market will take care of the other person.

Statistician: you plot a demand curve by asking them, at regular intervals, how much they would pay for a parachute.

IRS auditor: you confiscate the parachute along with their luggage, wallet, and gold fillings.

Manager: as you jump out with the parachute, you tell them to work hard and not expect handouts.

Consultant: you tell them not to worry, since it won't take you long to learn how to fix a plane.

Salesperson: you sell them the parachute at top retail rates and get the names of their friends and relatives who might like one too.

Advertiser: you strip-tease while singing that what they need is a neon parachute with computer altimeter for only $39.99.

Philosopher: you ask how they know the parachute actually exists.

Teacher: you give them the parachute and ask them to send you a report on how well it worked.

English major: you explicate simile and metaphor in the parachute instructions.

Comparative Literature major: you read the parachute instructions in all four languages.

Dramatist: you tie them down so they can watch you develop the character of a person stuck on a falling plane without a parachute.

Modern Painter: you hang the parachute on the wall and sign it.

Auto Mechanic: as long as you are looking at the plane engine, it works fine.

Good morning everyboomie. wave

You don't have to read all the jokes today.

I may just change the title to TGIFday tonight and repost it. lol

Now why doesn't spell check like that word TGIFday? headscratch

Probably the same reason it doesn't like "everyboomie". Because it likes noboomie, or should I say it doesn't like anyboomie? snicker

I think it needs to consult Joester's Dictionary. razz

This is my Thurs Day off, and I've got a full day of vigorous non physical activity planned. woot

I hope I don't pull a gluteus maximuscle during said activities. cool

I'll have some Excedrin headache pills ready just in case. wink

I hope you all have a happius maxius day. penguin

Oh here we go again with the spell check. slapforehead

No plans today but to watch where I walk when out with Sassy. lol

Re: Thursday's Day Off - 02/07/13 02:45 PM

It seems likie summer's here already -let's hope the warm weather stays now. I should take the PS out on the front porch in the sun.

That darn cat! It's Schemer, the one who got fixed yesterday. We came home, he rested about 1 hour, he drank some water, a few hours later he ate 3 cans of fancy feast which was about 7 PM and I haven't seen him since. And of course I'm so worried. He isn't in the road. However my other male cat Commander Buttons hasn't come in the house either but he was asleep in the yard near the picnic bench and now he's gone. I'll take girl cats any day as they come home more often. Here, my cats do have the best of 2 worlds -lotsa woods.

Tomato update: Wow, they look good. And growing -it's all this rain and sunshine and warmth.

Come on over, plenty of hot strong coffee. Happy Thursday all

Re: Thursday's Day Off - 02/07/13 02:56 PM

Thanks Ana!! I do believe he did. All his veins and arteries are very small and that is why the bypass didn't work and they had to use eight stents to open them up. The stents are now all plugged up and they can't be taken out and new ones put in. Once they are embedded they are there to stay. Too bad maybe they should have made them so they could be replaced. duh

I was just looking at the radar and I see all that green and yellow area by you!! Looks like lots of rain but makes it nice for working. Still lightly snowing here. We have more coming for the weekend. eek The moisture is needed though as the Great Lakes are kind of low and when low shipping isn't the best!

Well Yankee when he is hungry he will be home. lol Enjoy the nice weather and the fresh tomatoes!!

Re: Thursday's Day Off - 02/07/13 03:20 PM

OY! shocked

I decided it was a perfect day to work out in the yard after second, third, & fourth thoughts. yes

I did a lot of thinking. grin

It was really nice out. We had a little sunshine, but it's still very cloudy, but no rain. yes

Anyway I've been cleaning up the front yard and now Ahm tard. tired

Mom will be back home soon I hope with some fried chicken. happydance

Re: Thursday's Day Off - 02/07/13 07:43 PM

Well granddaughter says that it is NOT epilepsy just something they call "ticks" What ever that is. headscratch

L4l hope the boys are quiet and healthy!! Space enjoy the evening.

Night Haroula sleep well.

Joe hope mom brought home the chicken!!

Re: Thursday's Day Off - 02/07/13 08:26 PM

Nan, my youngest has tics also. Not much you can do, they just need to learn other ways to deal with stresses. Good luck to her. hearts

Re: Thursday's Day Off - 02/07/13 08:47 PM

Nan, maybe it will be temporary. When I was in college my left eye developed a tic for a quarter or so...then it went away.

Night all sleep
