  1. Camping with the Lone Ranger

    The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert.
    After they got their tent all set up, they fell sound asleep.

    Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and
    says, “Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”

    The Lone Ranger replies, “I see millions of stars.”

    “What that tell you?” asked Tonto.

    The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute, then says,
    “Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are
    millions of galaxies and potentially billions of
    planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in
    Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a
    quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, it’s
    evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and
    insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have
    a beautiful day tomorrow. What’s it tell you, Tonto?”

    Tonto is silent for a moment, then says, “Kemo Sabe,
    you dumb ass. Someone has stolen tent.”

  2. A Georgia farmer got in his pickup, drove several miles to a neighboring
    farm, and knocked on the farmhouse door. A young boy about 12 opened the
    door.
    “Is yer paw home?” the farmer asked.
    “No sir, he ain’t,” the boy replied. “He went into town.”
    “Well, said the farmer, is yer maw here?”
    “No, sir she ain’t here neither. She went into town with paw.”

    “How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?”
    “Nope! He went with maw and paw.”
    The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the
    other and mumbling to himself.
    “Is there anything I can do fer ya?” the boy asked politely. “I knows where
    all the tools are, if you want to borry one. Or maybe I could take a message
    fer paw.”
    “Well,” said the farmer uncomfortably, “I really wanted to talk to yer paw.
    It’s about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Pearly Mae, pregnant.”
    The boy considered for a moment. “You would have to talk to Pa about that”,
    he finally conceded. “If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $50 for
    the bull and $25 for the boar hog, but I really don’t know how much he gets
    fer Howard.”

    RIP Senator John McCain. A True American Hero. The World has lost a great man.
    I may not have always agreed with his politics, but I can respect a man who contributed so much to this country. He answered the call and served in Vietnam to a degree that most didn’t
    and then honorably served many years in government.
    Thank you, Senator McCain, for your service to our country. God Speed.
    My thoughts and prayers are with his soul, family, and friends.

  7. Desperate Blond
    Once upon a time, a Blonde was hard up for money.
    She was too much of a blonde to think of something logical to do,
    so she decided to kidnap a child for ransom.

    So the next day she went to a nearby playground and when nobody was looking, she pulled a random kid behind a tree and said, “You’re kidnapped, so be quiet and don’t give me any trouble.” The little boy, too startled to do anything stood there in shock. The Blonde then pulled out a note that read:

    “I am a desperate Blonde hard up for money. I have kidnapped your kid and if you ever want to see him again you arrange for 5,000 dollars in non-sequential, unmarked bills to be put next to this tree by 12:00 tonight, or else.”

    She handed the note to the kid and told him to give it to his mother. The next day the Blonde found the bag of money next to the tree. Inside the bag was a little note that read:

    “Here is the money. How could you do this to a fellow Blonde?”

  8. Little Red Riding Hood

    Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the road
    when she sees the Big Bad Wolf crouched down behind a log.

    “My, what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf,”
    says Little Red Riding Hood.

    The surprised wolf jumps up and runs away.
    Further down the road Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again;
    this time he is crouched behind a tree stump.

    “My, what big ears you have Mr. Wolf,” says Little Red Riding Hood.

    Again the foiled wolf jumps up and runs away.
    About 2 miles down the road, Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again,
    this time crouched down behind a road sign.
    “My, what big teeth you have Mr. Wolf,” taunts Little Red Riding Hood.

    With that, the Big Bad Wolf jumps up and screams,
    “Will you get lost?
    I’m trying to take a dump!”

  9. HAVING FUN WITH RETIREMENT….

    WHAT DO RETIRED PEOPLE DO? Actual story from a retired power company
    employee
    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Thought you might like to know what happened last week.

    Went to the store the other day. Only in there for about 5 minutes. Came
    out there was a city cop writing out a parking ticket. went up to him and said, “Come on, buddy, how about giving a guy a break?

    He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. Called him a Nazi.

    He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn
    tires.

    So I called him a piece of horse dung. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket.

    This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him, the more
    tickets he wrote.

    I didn’t give a hoot. My car was parked around the corner.
    I try to have a little fun each day. It’s important at my age.

I had an accountant that was jailed for tax fraud and embezzlement from a previous company he was a partner in, he got six months in one that sounded like a resort. Ironically they also put him in charge of the books for the on-site restaurant and recreational facilities, after all, he was a defrocked CPA.

    In memoriam This afternoon

    The former guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, who was credited for co-writing “Sweet Home Alabama,” passed away Wednesday night at the age of 68.

    My Grandfather, Ed King, passed away last night. He lived one hell of a life and he left behind a lot of people who cared for him including my father. It truly was a blessing to have had the chance to spend time with him a little over a year ago.

  12. DEGREES OF BLONDS
    A married couple was asleep when the phone rang at 2 in the morning.
    The wife (undoubtedly blonde), picked up the phone, listened a moment and said, “How should I know, that’s 200 miles from here!” and hung up.
    The husband said, “Who was that?”
    The wife said, “I don’t know, some woman wanting to know if the coast is
    clear.”

    SECOND DEGREE
    Two blondes are walking down the street. One notices a compact on the
    sidewalk and leans down to pick it up. She opens it, looks in the mirror
    and says, “Hmm, this person looks familiar.” The second blonde says,
    “Here, let me see!” So the first blonde hands her the compact. The
    second one looks in the mirror and says, “You dummy, it’s
    me!”

    THIRD DEGREE
    A blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so she goes out and
    buys a gun. She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and when she opens
    the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, the blonde is
    really angry. She opens her purse to take out the gun, and as she does
    so, she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her
    head. The boyfriend yells, “No, honey, don’t do it!!!” The blonde
    replies, “Shut up, you’re next!”

    >
    FOURTH DEGREE
    A blonde was bragging about her knowledge of state capitals. She proudly
    says, “Go ahead, ask me, I know all of them.” A friend says, “OK, what’s
    the capital of Wisconsin?” The blonde replies, “Oh, that’s easy:
    W.”

    FIFTH DEGREE
    What did the blonde ask her doctor when he told her she was pregnant?
    “Is it mine?”

    SIXTH DEGREE
    Bambi, a blonde in her fourth year as a UCLA freshman, sat in her US
    government
    class. The professor asked Bambi if she knew what Roe vs. Wade was
    about.
    Bambi pondered the question then finally said, “That was the decision
    George
    Washington had to make before he crossed the Delaware.”
    `
    SEVENTH DEGREE
    Returning home from work, a blonde was shocked to find her house
    ransacked and burglarized. She telephoned the police at once and
    reported the crime. The police dispatcher broadcast the call on the
    radio, and a K-9 unit patrolling nearby was the first to respond. As the
    K-9 officer approached the house with his dog on a leash, the blonde ran
    out on the porch, shuddered at the sight of the cop and his dog, then
    sat down on the steps. Putting her face in her hands, she moaned, “I
    come home to find all my possessions stolen. I call the police for help, and what do they
    do?
    They send me a BLIND policeman.”

    The girl from Louisiana sat quietly for a few moments
    and then replied: “So, where y’all from, bitch?”

    So close to a Chevy sweep this weekend!
    It’s a good thing that I don’t go to the races there anymore because if I did it would have been another usual Kryle or Kez sweep. When I don’t watch the races, it seems like Chevrolet does better?

  16. LOUISIANA GHOST STORY

    This guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a real dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm. Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he could hardly see his hand in front of his face.

    Suddenly he saw a car moving slowly approaching and appearing ghostlike
    in the rain. It slowly crept toward him and stopped. Wanting a ride real bad the guy jumped in the car and closed the door, only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel.

    The car slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running. The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve. Still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and in the bayou and he would surely drown.

    Just before the curve, a hand appeared thru the driver’s window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend. Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve.

    Finally, the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and jumped
    out of the car and ran to town. Wet and in shock, he went into a bar and
    voice quavering, ordered two shots of whiskey, then told everybody
    about his supernatural experience. A silence enveloped and everybody
    got goose bumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth and not
    just some drunk.

    About half an hour later two guys walked into the bar and one says to
    the other, “Look, Boudreaux, ders dat idiot that rode in our car when we
    wuz pushin it in da rain.”

  17. A pompous Baptist minister was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to
    Texas. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken. The cowboy
    asked for a whiskey and soda, which was brought and placed before him. The
    flight attendant then asked the minister if he would like a drink. He
    replied in disgust, “I’d rather be savagely raped by brazen whores than let
    liquor touch my lips.” The cowboy then handed his drink back to the
    attendant and said, “Me too. I didn’t know we had a choice.”

  18. A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary clinic. As she lay her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, “I’m so sorry, Cuddles has passed away.”
    The distressed owner wailed, “Are you sure?
    “Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead,” he replied.
    “How can you be so sure,” she protested. “I mean, you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.”
    The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few moments later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.
    The vet patted the dog and took it out, and returned a few moments later with a beautiful cat. The cat jumped up on the table and also sniffed delicately at the bird. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
    The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck.”
    Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill which he handed to the woman.
    The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$150!”, she cried, “$150 just to tell me my duck is dead?!”
    The vet shrugged. “I’m sorry. If you’d taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but what with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan ….”

    “46? But aren’t you Steven Jones? The lawyer from Brooklyn”

    1. Politics and Economics lesson for the day.
      A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?”
      Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I´m
      the breadwinner of the family, so let´s call me Capitalism.
      Your Mom, she´s the administrator of the money, so we´ll call her the Government. We´re here to take care of your needs, so we´ll call you the people. The nanny, we´ll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we´ll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,” So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents´ room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny´s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.
      The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I
      think I understand the concept of politics now.”
      The father says, “Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.”
      The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing
      the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep sh!t.”

    The Lord said, “Your request is very materialistic. Think of the
    enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required
    to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would
    take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for
    worldly things. Take a little more time and think of another wish, a
    wish you think would honor and glorify me.”

    The man thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, “Lord, I wish
    that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what
    they are thinking when they give the silent treatment, why they cry,
    what they mean when they say ‘nothing’, and how I can make a woman truly
    happy.”

    The Lord replied, “You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?”

  30. 10 smart blondes

    A bartender is sitting behind the bar on a typical
    day, when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant blondes. They come up to the bar, order five
    bottles of champagne and ten glasses, take their
    order over and sit down at a large table. The corks are popped, the glasses are filled and they begin
    toasting and chanting, “51 days, 51 days, 51 days!”
    Soon, three more blondes arrive, take up their drinks and the chanting grows. “51 days, 51 days, 51days!”
    Two more blondes show up and soon their voices are joined in raising the roof. “51 days, 51 days, 51 days!
    Finally, the tenth blonde comes in with a picture under her arm. She walks over to the
    table, sets the picture in the middle and the table erupts. Up jump the others, they begin dancing around the table, exchanging high-fives, all the while chanting “51 days, 51
    days, 51 days!” The bartender can’t contain his curiosity any longer, so he walks over to the table. There in the center is a beautifully framed child’s puzzle of the Cookie Monster. When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the bartender asks one of the blondes, “What’s all the chanting and celebration about?” The blonde who brought in the picture pipes in, “Everyone thinks that blondes are dumb and they make fun of us. So, we decided to set the record straight. Ten of us got together, bought that puzzle and put it together.
    The side of the box said 2-4 years, but we put it together in 51 days!”

      Please, make sure each times she has blood work done, make extra sure the Lab does urinalysis when she had blood work done… My Chemo Doc tells me he can tell if cancer returned any where in my body from Urinalysis numbers… I make sure the Lad does a Urinalysis every time I have blood work done…..and some times i have to ask even though its included in the order….. Go Figure …

      My prayers and thoughts are with u both kiddo

      1. I would likewise advise everyone here when you have a physical, typically it’s preceded by blood work at a local lab. Make sure your doctor includes Urinalysis… Even if you have to ask for it, do that. No one cares more about your health than you…..period

            Reminds me of people I’ve worked with over the years who are “gym rats” who would never help us to unload trucks and they used the elevator and would cuss if it was out of order as they had to use the stairs instead.

    1. Junior has always been a pitch man for NA$CRAP.
      Even when they are dead wrong about something, he always takes their side publicly.

      I think that he doesn’t always agree with what they do, but puts on/fakes his support because he likes the money, is a “company man” and knows that his “blessing” or not weilds a lot of power of public opinion and can make or break NA$CRAP because of his popularity.
      I’d think more of Junior if he did like fat Tony and hammered them with due criticism when they deserved it.
      But we all know that there is no free speech allowed in criticism of NA$CRAP or the drunk doper King Brian would throw the penalty and fine smackdown on him like they do to all in their “sport” business.

    2. UMM For Jr. one has to realize he no longer has Kelley guiding him (Amy does that now & that leave a lot to be desired in NASCAR, she is not a fan)… plus ” Can’t have two cooks in the same kitchen ” so to speak..

      IMO Dale Jr intro to the booth has gotten him started with the wrong influence . The entire NBC team make a race sound more like the WWF, not Motor Sports….. One only has to look at Mike Joy and/or Ken Squire to understand how to accomplish that task without sounding like the WWF ..

      Of all of the race families in Virginia, I like the Burton clan.. For personal reason I keep up with Tabitha (Wards wife, Jeffery Mom) but have to say Jeff Burton is the absolute worst in the booth, ever…. Jr is followings suite in that both seem to be in competition as to who can say the most about nothing in the shortest amount of time, then Rick chimes in with his volume at 10+ (WWF style) which imo is insulting and degrading to Motor Sports Fans everywhere….

      IMO Junior is hurting his brand and would do well to look at Jeff Gorgon as a roll model for this transition ….. but that’s just me ……..

      PS: Jeff Pooh might be another member of that Buy Out Consortium in my fantasy mind …. just saying

  32. Agree BBB, JGR allows his players to be destructive for the sport… Especially so when one considers Cry Baby once drove Rick and was let go for just that reason….. My perspective was purely from “Who has the deepest Pockets/most to loose ” perspective if the France Family let things get so out of hand accumulating more debt than the NASCAR asset can cover….

    To be honest, I expect to see someone not get paid for a win or such..by NASCAR….in the near future…

    O, and Rulez… Trust me, with how NASCAR book value would be measured today, Rick, Roger or Joe could put together a finance plan and buy NASCAR in a hart beat….if they wanted it …… Gibbs is the least wealthy and I have to think Toyota would float that loan to Gibbs…… Financially, Toyota can kinda do what they want …..

      1. That comment assumes that the new league wants racing fans not wrassling (spelled that way on purpose) fans. The Busch brothers and Hampster should not be licensed. And a couple of others like Kez and Harvick should sign a gag order before being allowed to compete. IMO

      A total carpet job.

      1. This happened with my previous employer where I had worked for 23 years then quit.

        The founders are brothers who turned their company over to their two sons when they had retired. The son’s “silver spoon” born and raised infinite greed ran it right into the ground, even stole from me. After I had caught them, I had no choice but to quit and move on because there was no future in working for crooks and people who I could not trust.

        They did not have the basic due respect that their fathers had for anything. Not for the employees or their customers.

        NASCAR is exactly the same way.

          1. It ain’t worth buying out for the price that they are asking and all three of those companies couldn’t even make the down payment.

            It’s like a vintage car that has been ragged out and wrecked way too many times by the drunk driver. Ain’t worth the price of a trashed out Volkswagen yet being sold as a brand new Roll Royce or a Bentley.

        2. I think the best way out is for the major American car team owners start a new series with help from the manufacturers and compete at non ISC venues. I’m sure many track owners would buy in. The” Nascar Titanic” is barely worth its salvage value these days.

          1. That’s a true point, not to be left out of the Price Point conversation…. The France Family (Brian’s sister & uncle own all the shares) owning NASCAR may be a drain (without a major sponsor). I doubt any one with real money, even in today’s economy would want to step up to this now tainted plate… I see opportunity here with hooks into the ISC venues on the cheap, as a function of the sale contract… Given a total divorce from France family, that alone could bring new blood in the Sponsorship Community via Rick, Roger or Joe….. IMHO

                1. Although I see your point I see Gibbs as the frontman used to bring Toyota in and if that is not bad enough he has allowed his drivers to act like total asses for years. Gibbs would be bad for a venture that is trying to divorce itself from what is bad about Nascar. Just my humble opinion.

It will take a full change of the management and a lot of that leak repair spray stuff fromTV to right that ship it is taking on water nearly as quickly as the Titanic.
