18. What Kind Of Coffee Was Served On The Titanic?

Sanka.


Coffee has bean the grounds of many a heated and strong discussion.



Well it is a stirring subject.


Because of the spooning?

No, it's because it percolates in my brain, whether I want it to or not.

At least try to lighten up.

(I wonder if that's what they said to Guy Fawkes?)


He was so sensitive to criticism, he would've imploded.

Sometimes when you add coffee powder to nuked water it explodes like a volcano.

When I asked if I could get insurance if the nearby volcano erupted they assured me I would be covered.

Are you covered for seismic events by Quaker State Insurance?

My friend Dick has a thing about unwanted felines showing up in his garden and using it as a toilet. He even borrowed my BB gun once to try to scare them off.

Anyway, I was round at his place the other day, and among the mounted heads of deer, elk and moose hanging on his walls there was also a cat. The strange thing about it was that it was the rear end of the cat that was mounted instead of its head.

"What the heck is that?" I enquired.

"Oh," says Dick, "It's a cat's ass trophy."

If he is not feline well today does it mean he has had a bit too much hair of the dog?

I asked Demo to take a seat after I had sat Ern down.

"where shall I sit?" Demo asked, I replied, "On uranus".


Phew! I had to get the cobwebs off those two!

Thanks, Don, that's where I'll sit! And on this planet,  since my wife's the apple of my eye I'll sit down right be cider.

It's not that the man did not know how to juggle, he just didn't have the balls to do it.

Depends on your view, whether they are juggling balls or jiggling something else.....

Though I have to admit I cannot juggle well, I keep losing something every so often whilst doing it, and it tends to get a bit messy around me if I do it too long.

Sean, I knew someone like that, but instead of continuing that way,  he got a model airplane hobby that really took off.
