please welcome a guest post from paul bartholomew a very talented young man, well younger than me at least. please add him to your ever increasing list of blogs to read .. thank you paul need more ?
i’m getting very handy today so i thought i’d post away while the feeling remains. these gags below are from my old triumph bonneville america site. please don’t blame me, i didn’t write them i just promote them ..
don’t take a bad day out on someone you know, take it out on someone you DON’T know. Now get this. I was sitting at my desk, when I remembered a phone call I had to make. I found the number and dialled it.
A man answered saying, “Hello?” I politely said, “This is Fred Hanifin and could I please speak to Robin Carter?”
Suddenly the phone was slammed down on me! I couldnt believe that anyone could be that rude. I tracked down Robin’s correct number and called her. She had transposed the last two digits incorrectly. After I hung up with Robin, I spotted the wrong number still lying there on my desk. I decided to call it again. When the same person once more answered, I yelled “You’re an asshole!” and hung up.
Next to his phone number I wrote the word asshole,” and put it in my desk drawer. Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills, or had a really bad day, I’d call him up. He’d answer, and I’d yell, “You’re an asshole!”
It would always cheer me up.
Later in the year the Phone Company introduced caller ID.
This was a real setback for me; I would have to stop calling the asshole. Then one day I had an idea. I dialled his number and when I heard his voice, “Hello?”
I made up a name. “Hi. I’m with the Telephone Company and I’m just calling to see if you’d be interested in our caller ID program?”
“No” he shouted and slammed the phone down.
I quickly called him back and said, “Thats because you’re an asshole!”
Keep reading this, it gets better!
Some time later I was looking for a parking spot at the shopping centre.
An old lady really took her time pulling out of a parking space. I didn’t think she was ever going to leave. Finally, her car began to move and she started to very slowly back out of the slot. I backed up a little more to give her plenty of room to pull out.
“Great”, I thought, Shes finally leaving.”
All of a sudden this black BMW flies up the parking aisle in the wrong direction and pulls into her space. I hit the horn and started yelling, “You can’t do that I was here first The guy climbed out of his BMW completely ignoring me. He walked toward the shopping centre as if I didn’t even exist. I thought to myself, “This guy’s another asshole; there sure are a lot of assholes in this world.” Then, I noticed he had a “For Sale” sign in the back window of his car. I wrote down the phone number. Then I hunted for another place to park.
A couple of days later, I’m sitting at my desk. I had just gotten off the phone after calling 823-4863 and yelling, “You’re an asshole!” (It’s really easy since I have his number on speed dial now.) I noticed the phone number of the guy with the black BMW there on my desk and thought I’d better call this guy, too. After a couple rings, someone answered the phone and said, “Hello.”
I said, “Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?”
“Yes, it is.”
“Can you tell me where I can see it?”
“Yes, I live at 1802 West 34th street. It’s a yellow house and the car’s parked right out front.”
I said, “What’s your name?”
“My name is Don Hansen.”
“When’s a good time to catch you, Don?”
“I’m home in the evenings.”
“Listen, Don, can I tell you something?”
“Don, you’re an asshole!” And I slammed the phone down.
Then, I added Don Hansen’s number to my speed dialler. I must say, for a while things seemed to be going much better for me. Now, when I had a problem I had two assholes to call. Then, after several months of calling the assholes and hanging up on them, it just wasn’t as enjoyable as it used to be. I gave the problem some serious thought and came up with this solution:
First, I had my phone speed dial asshole #1.
A man answered nicely, “Hello?”
I yelled, “You’re an asshole!” but I didn’t hang up.
The asshole said, “Are you still there?”
I said, “Yeah.”
He said, “Stop calling me.”
I said, “Make me.”
He said, “What’s your name, pal?”
So I told him, “Don Hansen.”
He said, “Where do you live?”
“1802 West 34th Street. It’s a yellow house and my black BMW’s parked out front.”
“I’m coming over right now, Don. You’d better start saying your prayers.”
“Yeah, like I’m really scared, asshole” and I hung up.
Then I called asshole #2.
Don Hansen answered, “Hello?”
I said, “Hello, asshole.”
He said, “If I ever find out who you are…”
“I’ll kick your ass.”
“Well, here’s your chance. I’m coming over right now, asshole.” And I hung up.
Then I picked up the phone and called the police. I told them I was on my way to 1802 West 34th Street and that I was going to kill my gay lover as soon as I got there, and a quick call to Channel 13 about the gang war taking place at West 34th Street. After that I climbed into my car and headed over to 34th Street to watch the whole thing.
Glorious satisfaction! Watching two assholes kicking the crap out of each other in front of 6 squad cars, a police helicopter and a news crew was one of the greatest experiences of my life!

The Most Powerful Word
Shit may just be the most powerful word in the English language.
You can be shit faced, shit out of luck, or have shit for brains.
With a little effort, you can get your shit together, find a place for your shit or decide to shit or get off the pot.
You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit and die.
Some people know their shit while others can’t tell the difference between shit and shineola.
There are lucky shits, dumb shits crazy shits, and sweet shits.
There is bull shit , horse shit and chicken shit.
You can throw shit, sling shit, catch shit, shoot shit, or duck when shit hits the fan.
You can give a shit or serve shit on a shingle
You can find yourself in deep shit or be happier than a pig in shit.
Some days are colder than shit, some days are hotter than shit, and some days are just plain shitty.
Some music sounds like shit, things can look like shit, and there are times when you feel like shit.
You can have too much shit, not enough shit, the right shit, the wrong shit or a lot of weird shit.
You can carry shit, have a mountain of shit, or find yourself up a shit creek without a paddle.
Sometimes everything you touch turns to shit and other times you swim in a lake of shit and come out smelling like a rose.
When you stop to consider all the facts, it’s the basic building block of creation.
And remember, once you know your shit, you don’t need to know anything else!
tbaoo does not in any way condone the use of non prescription drugs, or abuse of prescription drugs, nor does tbaoo condone the use of stupidity as an excuse in your defence. i’m sorry but this news item just can’t get past my silly filter. it’s set on high at the moment.

FARMINGTON, Conn. — A Connecticut man was arrested after he called 911 to find out how much legal trouble he could get in for growing marijuana, the Hartford Courant reported yesterday.
Robert J. Michelson of Farmington, Conn., called 911 on Thursday to ask about the legal penalties for cultivating marijuana. Dispatchers traced his address and sent narcotics officers to his home.
Michelson told the officers he had purchased equipment to grow marijuana online. The officers found one small cannabis plant, cannabis seeds and growing equipment, as well as drug paraphernalia, and arrested Michelson.
He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal cultivation of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia in a drug factory.
Michelson was brought to the Farmington police station and released on $5,000 bond. He was reportedly cooperative with officers but made an obscene gesture toward the police dispatchers.
tbaoo does however appreciate drug use humour .. sorry but’s it’s very true, so i’ve heard.
