When I said 'fill her up', this wasn't quite what I had in mind.

Once, when I worked in the gum factory,  I fell in a vat of bubblegum.

My boss had to chew me out.

I would prefer a less in-depth car wash, personally. Even one as bad as this:

When I said 'fill her up', this wasn't quite what I had in mind.

I personally prefer more modern methods to "fill her up", including an accurate meter that shows exactly how much gas you purchase @ 22 and 1/2 cents per gallon!






If I had Don_1's graphic skills, I would circle "Fill 'er up!"


edit: "her" or "er" in the phrase "Fill her up" refers to the car.

NOT the woman!

Why is he looking upward? Do you think his father bought him the car? Or did he just co-sign the loan papers?

This coming Saturday, June 15, 2013, is:
Queen's [UK] Official Birthday



The queen's favourite chef was knighted Sir Loin.

Many people stand up for royalty, but the queen sits down for royal tea.

June, 2013, is:
International Men's Month

Some random thoughts:

Would men who make draperies be called Curt and Rod?

Most males in a men's room are stand-up guys.

Do garbage men mostly talk trash?

Florence Nightingale had many suitors because men liked to go with the Flo.

I was about to plant out some seedlings when 'er indoors swiped my dibble.

"Oi!" I exclaimed, "That's mine and women can't use them anyway, bloody cheek."

She retorted, "Since when was this a man dibble?"

The women stood shoulder to shoulder to stop the G8 meeting from taking place, but they were failing until one large strong man joined them. "Oh look," said Anna* "Now we really are a bloke aid."


*Not her again.

A quick witted postal worker, trained in first aid, rushed to the assistance of a pregnant woman who's waters broke while she was in a supermarket. Moments later, the postal worker gave the mother her new born baby boy.

Headline reads:

Postal worker delivers male.

A slow postal worker would thus deliver male men o' pause.

Sadly, my quest for oranges was fruitless.

Why are oranges in short supply?

I believe there’s a navel blockade.

You mean a naval blockade, don’t you?

No, they’re blockading navel oranges on the highways, not on the waterways, so it’s not a naval navel blockade.

Oranges with belly button's are called navel oranges. Lemons which help them are called lemon aide's.
