The Saturday Night Joke


Two guys grow up together, but after college one moves to Georgia and the other to Texas. They agree to meet every ten years in Florida to play golf and catch up with each others stories.
At age 32 they meet, finish their round of golf and head for lunch.
"Where you wanna go?"
"Hooters."
"Why Hooters?"
"They have those servers with the big boobs, the tight shorts and the gorgeous legs."
"Perfect, you're on"
At age 42, they meet and play golf again
"Where you wanna go for lunch?"
"Hooters."
"Again? Why?"
"They have cold beer, big screen TVs, and side action on the games."
"Yeah, boy! Let's do it!"
At age 52 they meet and play again. "So, where you wanna go for lunch?"
"Hooters.
"Why?"
"The food is pretty good and there's plenty of parking."
"OK."
At age 62 they meet again.
After a round of golf, one says, "Where you wanna go?"
"Hooters."
"Why?"
"Wings are half price and the food isn't too spicy."
"Good choice"
At age 72 they meet again.
Once again, after a round of golf, one says, "Where shall we go for lunch?"
"Hooters."
"Why?"
"They have six handicapped parking spaces right by the door and they have senior discounts."
"Great choice."
At age 82 they meet and play again. "Where should we go for lunch?"
"Hooters."
"Why?"
"Because we've never been there before."
"OK, let's give it a try!"

Bad to the bone. And his driving skills aren't bad either.

Good news for our friends "down under". Alcohol going down in price.


Booze prices are set to tumble around Australia as alcohol producers are handed a tax cut to boost the hospitality sector's recovery.

Australian drinkers have long endured some of the most expensive pints in the world, with Perth ranking second only to Oslo, due to enormous taxes.

But on Saturday the federal government announced tax cuts of up to $250,000 a year for liquor producers hit by coronavirus.

Perhaps if we raised children to be self-sufficient and hardy these playground activities wouldn't be banned. Dangerous playground equipment? You decide.

With equipment that made a mockery of the universal conditions of gravity and physics, the schoolyards of the early 20th century were a treacherous labyrinth of concussion and contusion. Grandpa always said he was tough—but even if you don’t believe that he walked eight miles uphill in the snow to school every day, these vintage playground devices were truly perilous.


Perilous? Oh FFS.

Talk about perilous games and life style. When playing Xbox leave the drugs alone.

An inquest heard the night he died Simon and a friend stayed up until around midnight to play on an Xbox.

But his friend went upstairs to bed - and came down 11 hours later to find Simon.

The inquest heard he found Simon "still on the sofa, in a sitting position, still clutching the Xbox controller".

Paramedics and police were called to the property but he was pronounced dead at 12.15pm at his home in Loughor, Swansea.

Everything is race. Including a f*cking robotic dog.
New York City – Not even robots are sage from the anti-police crowd. In February, NYPD rolled out a futuristic robot dog after officers in the Bronx had responded to a hostage situation. The viral video sparked controversy from Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who then called it a “robotic surveillance ground drone,” while praising activists in her district who pushed back on the tech to demand that police funds should instead go toward investments like school counseling.


Once again she demonstrates her bra size exceeds her IQ.

The ONT Musical Interlude



On this day:1 May 1956
Johnny Cash released his classic song, 'I Walk the Line', which became his first No.1 Billboard country hit and remained on the charts for over 43 weeks, selling over 2 million copies. The unique chord progression for the song was inspired by backwards playback of guitar runs on Cash's tape recorder while he was in the Air Force stationed in Germany. via thisdayinmusic.com


Born on this day:1 May 1930
American blues musician, singer, and songwriter Little Walter. He was the first harp player to amplify his harmonica, giving it a distorted echoing sound. His virtuosity and musical innovations fundamentally altered many listeners' expectations of what was possible on blues harmonica. Walter died on February 15th 1968. via thisdayinmusic.com

I've driven a number of Toyota vehicles over the years. They company fleet vehicles and held up to the rigors of a company car. Maybe someday one of my company rides will have a hydrogen combustion engine.

Toyota is going racing with a hydrogen combustion engine, mainly as an experiment and continuation of Toyota’s somewhat unhinged obsession with hydrogen. Still, I think you will agree that it sounds good.

Which is to say that it sounds like a car:

Watching campfires is fun. Unless you're a Genius Award Winner.

ELKTON, MD (WBFF) - A woman is in custody with multiple arson-related charges following a house fire in Cecil County.

Just after 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, Singerly Fire Company and surrounding fire departments responded to the unit block of Cherry Lane in Elkton for a reported house fire.


Witnesses reported observing a woman, later identified as Gail J. Metwally, 47 of Elkton, setting multiple fires within the home and then sitting in a chair on the front lawn, where she watched the fire engulf the home.
