I love these two... :D
 
I know a few of them folks running around with no brains, too....amazing how they live still :D
 
I didn't know that :D
See? You caught me again, Satori, not knowing you posted that already....good job! You should ask Thomas to make you an advisor now that you pass the test of checking that I know nothing :D
 
What I need is a real job!!! Are you still unemployed too? I'm being evicted right now, so it's Merry Christmas to me...:eek: Hopefully, I'll find something in January, though. I guess Thomas finally got a job in Japan, so that's good.

Hey, don't worry about the duplicate post. I had to go back quite a few pages just to find it!! My favorite part about this joke is the very last exchange, especially working in the law for over 20 years. I thought it was classic!

By the way, how come no one has responded to your 2001: A Space Odyssey thread? I LOVED that one!!! Thanks so much for posting it.

:)
 
to each their own.....maybe HAL put them to sleep in the movie....
