The Sunday Night Joke


The Centipede

A single guy decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.

So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a talking centipede, which came in a little white box to use for his house.

He took the box back home, found a good spot for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to church with him.

So he asked the centipede in the box,

"Would you like to go to church with me today? We will have a good time."

But there was no answer from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked again,


"How about going to church with me and receive blessings?"

But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet.
So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation.

The guy decided to invite the centipede one last time.

This time he put his face up against the centipede's house and shouted,

"Hey, in there! Would you like to go to church with me and learn about God?"

.

.

.

This time, a little voice came out of the box,


"I heard you the first time! I'm putting my shoes on!"

Mis Hum,

A little nostalgic today. My old Marine Tanker unit was dissolved this week. USMC has changed mission focus and heavy armor is no longer part of it. Below is why Bravo Co. will live on as a legend due to its role in Desert Storm 91:

RIP Bravo

Today, the United States Marine Corps stood down my former unit, Bravo Company, 4th Tank Battalion, in Yakima, WA.

All tanks and related MOS’s, 1812: Main battle tank crewman & 2146: M1 main battle tank mechanic, are being retired from the Marine Corps as they update their further roles in the US Military.

Sad day for all former Marine Corps tankers and tank mechanics.

4th tanks has had a long history since WWII, however Bravo will always go down in the history books with the most enemy tank kills in a single engagement by USMC tanks and the longest tank kill in history, both during the 1st Gulf war.

Between November 1990 and January 1991, 4th Tank Battalion was mobilized in support of Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. Elements of the battalion were "in country" and combat ready within 32 days of activation. During the fighting, Bravo Company engaged Iraqi tanks in combat on February 25, reporting 34 enemy tanks destroyed or disabled in less than 90 seconds. This battle was named the “Reveille Engagement” and went on to be the biggest and fastest tank battle in United States Marine Corps history. They were the only Marine unit equipped with M1A1 Abrams tanks. Bravo company went on to destroy 59 tanks, 32 APCs, 26 non armored vehicles, and an artillery gun. Bravo Company destroyed a total of 119 enemy vehicles and took over 800 POWs. Tank crew “Stepchild” has the longest confirmed live kill (Iraqi BMP) by a tank at 3,750 meters (2.33miles).

Semper Fi Bravo.

Rock N Roll. Beer. Ace of Spades. Sounds like a Moron story.

MADISON - Explaining how a Wisconsin craft brewery got tapped to make an anniversary beer for a legendary English rock band involves COVID-19 and a few F-bombs. You've been warned.

Ale Asylum co-owner Otto Dilba said it took all of two seconds for him to say "yes" when he was asked — unexpectedly — to brew the celebratory Motörhead beer Röad Crew.

Brewing schedules be damned, Dilba and Ale Asylum co-founder Dean Coffey are longtime fans of the band, and the opportunity comes but once to brew a nationally released beer marking the 40th anniversary of the band's seminal album "Ace of Spades." (It ranks 408 on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.")

Science from Arkansas? Who knew?

A team of University of Arkansas physicists has successfully developed a circuit capable of capturing graphene's thermal motion and converting it into an electrical current.

"An energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors," said Paul Thibado, professor of physics and lead researcher in the discovery.

Under cover operative.

Popular conservative YouTuber Maggie VandenBerghe, who goes by "Fog City Midge" on social media, went undercover to find support for Joe Biden in the very liberal city of Houston, TX. That ended up being easier said than done.

In her video description, VandenBerghe says: "I disguised myself as a Biden 'supporter' & headed straight to the bluest, most Democrat area of Houston. What happened next was both surprising & amazing! Well that is unless you actually DO support Joe Biden!"

MH, love your COB expertise. My SIL is a Biden supporter, but can't tell me why. My brother is a huge Trump backer. She put a Biden sign on their front lawn. For my brother's sake I had to FTFY. Got a great pic of it.

You. Can't. Make. This. Shit. Up!

OUCH: Democrat Governor of Delaware Pardoned One of Gov. Whitmer’s Kidnap Plotters

The whole story about these clowns who were exposed last week in a foiled plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer keeps getting a tad bit stranger as more comes out. As I wrote here last week on this, thankfully the plot was foiled by the police before she was able to defund them…“OPINION: Thankfully the Plot Against Gov Whitmer Was Stopped Before the Police Were Defunded. Whitmer in the past has argued that she has agreed with the “spirit” of the Defund The Police movement and if she had gotten her way she might be in harm’s way right now.

Now comes word that one of the idiots planning on doing this was just pardoned by her fellow Governor, and Democrat to boot, just last year in the State of Delaware. You know Deleware, where Joe Biden served as a Senator forever and not Scranton, Pennsylvania as you might believe from all of the commercials.

From The Detroit News…

Delaware last year pardoned one of the men charged in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

Delaware Gov. John Carney last year signed off on the pardon for Barry Gordon Croft Jr., 44, of Bear, Delaware, who was arrested and then charged Wednesday in federal court in Michigan with conspiring to kidnap Whitmer.

Croft was pardoned for charges dating to the mid-1990s, including possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, assault and burglary, according to a copy of the pardon papers. The Wilmington (Delaware) News Journal first reported the news.

Croft was also convicted on charges of conspiracy, receiving stolen property and disorderly conduct, according to the pardon document.


The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“He’s an individual thinker, I’ll give him that for a start. He’s not the most lovable fellow on God’s earth, but I cannot see the opposition as offering me anything by way of a solution." Legendary Punk Rocker John Lydon, who goes by “Johnny Rotten"


Quote II

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.” David Nabarro ,The World Health Organization’s special envoy on COVID-19

Quote III

“And I don’t want to live in a country that is so divisive. I go, like, well, if this starts over and there’s another four years of this, then I’m going — but we’re not welcome anywhere. So where can I go? And I’m thinking: Oh, space. Maybe I can talk Elon Musk into giving us a jet and letting me pick 50 people, and we’re like the arc, and someone can take us and let us live on another planet until the next four years are over.”Stevie Nicks


Quote IV

Nicole, you need to get laid at least once in your life. Is there a Mr. Wallace? If not, then considering you hang with such fine examples of masculinity as Jonah Goldberg, Max Boot and George Conway, the odds of your desiccated, leathery, 80-grit piss flaps getting some saddle soap are slim to none.J.J.

Are bewbs lewd? The Deep Thought of The Day.

A Southwest Airlines passenger said she was prevented from boarding her flight because her breasts were deemed “lewd, obscene and offensive” — forcing the captain to lend her his T-shirt.

Irate Chicago resident Kayla Eubanks took to Twitter to document her dispute on Tuesday with ground staffers who said her low-cut black halter top was too revealing.

“Y’all I was KICKED OFF my @SouthwestAir flight because my boobs are ‘lewd, obscene and offensive.’ I was told that passengers may look at me in my attire and be offended,” Eubanks tweeted along with a bathroom selfie showing her ensemble, which included a long red skirt.

Mr. Penny Pincher should have sprung for a condom. Genius Award Winner.

As his 1-year-old daughter was trapped in a hot car Monday afternoon, the 27-year-old man rebuffed help from Metro Police officers and his brother to break the window because he couldn't afford to damage his new car. The air conditioner was on, and the girl was OK, he said.


When his partner was on the phone with an insurance company representative who offered to send a tow truck, Sidney Deal told her to hang up because he didn’t agree with the cost, according to his arrest report.

The toddler, Sayah, was trapped in a “high heat environment” for about an hour and was dead when officers eventually smashed the window to pull her out, police said.

What is it like to have a dream and to know you'll never be able to accomplish it? Long-distance runner Marios Giannakou changes that for one young woman. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.


Prior to his latest endeavor, he’d already successfully taken in the view from atop Mount Olympus’ highest peak 50 times.

When Giannakou met and befriended 22-year-old biology student Eleftheria Tosiou and learned of her dream to experience the summit herself, it seemed only natural that he was more than ready to rise to the occasion.

“For me, all international races, the medals and the distinctions so far, mean little compared to that goal,” he told the Greek Reporter.
