Juggle Test

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Thank you margemf:


A juggler, driving to his next performance, is stopped by the police. "What are those machetes doing in your car?" asks the cop.

"I juggle them in my act."

"Oh, yeah? Says the doubtful cop. "Let's see you do it.” The juggler gets out and starts tossing and catching the knives. Another man driving by slows down to watch.

"Wow" says the passer-by. "I'm glad I quit drinking. Look at the test they're giving now

Do You Remember These?

Monday, June 30, 2014




A few I wasn't familiar with, but most of these I remember.......another time and place.


I know some of you will not understand this message,
but I bet you know someone who might.
I came across this phrase yesterday.
'FENDER SKIRTS'


A term I haven't heard in a long time, and thinking about
'fender skirts' started me thinking
about other words that quietly disappear from
our language with hardly a notice like 'curb feelers'



And 'steering knobs.' (AKA)
'suicide knob,' 'neckers knobs.'

Since I'd been thinking of cars,
my mind naturally went that direction first.


Any kids will probably have to find some older person
over 50 to explain some of these terms to you.


Remember 'Continental kits?'
They were rear bumper extenders and spare tire covers
that were supposed to make any car
as cool as a Lincoln Continental.



When did we quit calling them 'emergency brakes?
At some point 'parking brake' became the proper term.
But I miss the hint of drama that went with 'emergency brake.'

I'm sad, too, that almost all the old folks are gone
who would call the accelerator the 'foot feed.'
Many today do not even know what a clutch is
or that the dimmer switch used to be on the floor.
For that matter, the starter was down there too.



Didn't you ever wait at the street for your daddy
to come home, so you could ride the
'running board' up to the house?


Here's a phrase I heard all the time in my youth
but never anymore - 'store-bought.'
Of course, just about everything is store-bought these days.
But once it was bragging material to have a
store-bought dress or a store-bought bag of candy.



'Coast to coast' is a phrase that once held all sorts
of excitement and now means almost nothing.
Now we take the term 'worldwide' for granted.
This floors me.



On a smaller scale, 'wall-to-wall' was once
a magical term in our homes. In the '50s,
everyone covered his or her hardwood floors with,
wow, wall-to-wall carpeting!
Today, everyone replaces their wall-to-wall carpeting
with hardwood floors. Go figure.



When was the last time you heard the quaint phrase
'in a family way?' It's hard to imagine that the word 'pregnant'
was once considered a little too graphic,
a little too clinical for use in polite company,
so we had all that talk about stork visits and
'being in a family way' or simply 'expecting.'



Apparently 'brassiere' is a word no longer in usage.
I said it the other day and my daughter cracked up.
I guess it's just 'bra' now.
'Unmentionables' probably wouldn't be understood at all.




I always loved going to the 'picture show,'
but I considered 'movie' an affectation.



Most of these words go back to the '50s,
but here's a pure '60s word I came across
the other day 'rat fink.' Ooh, what a nasty put-down!



Here's a word I miss - 'percolator.'
That was just a fun word to say.
And what was it replaced with 'Coffee maker.'
How dull... Mr. Coffee, I blame you for this.



I miss those made-up marketing words that were
meant to sound so modern and now sound so retro.
Words like 'Dyna Flow' and 'Electrolux' and 'Frigidaire'.
Introducing the 1963 Admiral TV, now with 'Spectra Vision!'



Food for thought.
Was there a telethon that wiped out lumbago?
Nobody complains of that anymore.
Maybe that's what Castor oil cured,
because I never hear mothers threatening kids
with Castor Oil anymore.



Some words aren't gone, but are definitely
on the endangered list.
The one that grieves me most is 'supper.'
Now everybody says 'dinner.' Save a great word.
Invite someone to supper. Discuss fender skirts

    Ah - but did you know that castor oil can help a woman too long in the family way start labor?

    . . . . and Simoniz for the car chroes . . . back in the day when fenders were beautiful chrome!

. . . . and poodle skirts

. . . . and bobby socks

. . . . and saddle shoes!

. . . . and Bryl Crème!

. . . . and Burma Shave (and the road signs!)

OMG . . . the list goes on.

If you invite people for dinner or supper, you'd better specify the time, because sometimes people equate dinner with lunchtime.

The Maid

Monday, June 16, 2014


The Mexican maid asked for a pay increase. The wife was very upset about this, and decided to talk to her about the raise.





"Now Maria,” she asked. “Why do you want more money?"





Maria: "Well, Señora, there are tree reasons why I wanna increaze."

"The first is that I iron better than you."









Wife: "Who said you iron better than me?"





Maria: "Jor huzban he say so."





Wife: "Oh yeah?"





Maria: "The second reason eez that I am a better cook than you."





Wife: "Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?"





Maria: "Jor hozban did."





Wife, increasingly agitated: "Oh he did, did he?"





Maria: "The third reason is that I am better at sex than you in the bed."





Wife, really boiling now and through gritted teeth: "And did my husband say that as well?"





Maria: "No Señora...."The gardener did."





Wife: "So, how much do you want?"
