The Saturday Night Joke

I bought a new truck. It'll run on hydrogen, gasoline, or E85. Had to go back to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work. The service technician explained that the radio was voice-activated.

”Nelson,” the technician said to the radio. The radio replied, “Ricky or Willie? ”Willie” he continued, and “On The Road Again” flowed from the speakers. Then he said, “Ray Charles,” and in an instant “Georgia On My Mind” replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away so happy, and for the next few days every time I'd say, “Beethoven” I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, “Beatles” I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Well, yesterday, this woman ran a red light and nearly smashed into my new truck, but luckily I swerved in time to avoid her. I yelled at her, “Crazy Bitch!”

The radio replied, “Hillary, Maxine, Kamala, Warren, Ocasio, or Pelosi?”

- GOD, I love this truck!

Planning a trip? Want to check out something unusual? 5 of the strangest beaches.

There's nothing like a beach day. The long expanses of sand. The sound of the ocean breathing in and out. The salty air, giving you those perfect beachy waves - everyone loves an effortless look.
However, while we all can't escape to the beach you can still get those dreamy waves at home thanks to Beachwaver. This female-founded, responsible haircare brand is the place to go for the ultimate curling irons. You can touch up your natural waves or start from scratch.

The Midnight Rose 3B Waver heats up in just 30 seconds and packs easy for all your destination travels. They have a range of other curlers in different barrel sizes to work with all hair types and textures. Beachwaver's got your hair covered no matter where you go.


Beaches aren't your thing? I understand. Perhaps an out of the way tavern is your thing.

There are old bars. There are haunted bars. But what about bars in remote corners of the world?

To access some of these locations, you may have to hike through the wilderness, journey by boat or even ride a yak. If you have a thirst for adventure, these far-reaching bars just might slake your curiosity.

Just thinking out loud here. But, I don't think we will be seeing this in stores anytime soon.
