The Saturday Night Joke

Hopefully not too serious for a Saturday evening..............

If there is a lien holder. It will be, how do you say in French,
avoir les boules.

French Cops Punish Street Drifters By Crushing Their BMWs
The owner of one of the cars allegedly had his car seized while at work and before he could mount a legal defense.

Crime doesn’t pay. Well, most crime doesn’t pay. And though the urge to clutch kick any rear-wheel-drive car into a sick, smokey slide on the street is always strong within those without a well-developed prefrontal cortex, some dudes in France with crushed BMWs will urge you just as strongly to not give in. Unfortunately for them, they never got the chance to even explain themselves.

I'll be honest with you. I am not heart broken about this news.

KELLOGG'S has confirmed that a fan-favorite cereal is gone despite pleas to bring it back.

The food brand giant told a fan that the Cinnamon Frosted Flakes flavor was permanently pulled from shelves.

Thank you Dear Lord that I don't have close neighbors.

'I cut my neighbours' tree exactly in half - our street is divided but I have no regrets'
Irene Lee and her husband Graham caused a rift in their neighbourhood when they sliced their neighbour's tree exactly in half - and two years later, it's still the talk of the street

Leisure travel and etiquette. Everything you wanted to know about traveling with others.

How to Travel with Friends—Without Becoming Enemies

Practice the art of shuttle diplomacy. Don’t bicker over breakfast. Include a wildcard. Drop the intermittent fasting. And do not, for heaven’s sake, Splitwise the small stuff.

David Prior, the vacation guru and founder of the namesake travel club, has planned trips for Gwyneth Paltrow and normies alike. He can organize a group of strangers to have the time of their lives in India for Diwali, and he has an 80 percent return rate to prove it. But this year he has taken on the daunting task of planning his own trip.

I guess he'll never do that again.

A tourist died after trying to drink all 21 cocktails on the menu at a bar in Jamaica

A British tourist in Jamaica died after heavy drinking during a 21-cocktail bar challenge.

A coroner said that the man died in his hotel room of alcohol-related gastritis.

His family called his emergency treatment "disgusting" and suggested he could have survived.

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM. Oh yes it is.

Use citric acid to clean your dishwasher and other gross household items
Cleaning solutions smell like lemon for a reason.

The smell of lemon is the smell of cleanliness. There’s nothing like the scent of a freshly cleaned bathroom (lemon), a stack of spotless dishes (lemon), or a floor so pristine that five-second rules easily become three-minute rules (yes, again, lemon).

I hope this dickweasel suffers. He's worse than a Genius Award Winner.

New Jersey man cuts down 32 of his neighbor's trees to get better view, thinking the fine would be $32,000. Turns out he's on the hook for nearly $2 million.

The ONT Musical Interlude & Sparkler Emporium


Not my cup of tea or my choice in music and/or art. I wouldn't give you $6.00 for the art and the LP.

"Dark Kingdom," the iconic Frank Frazetta painting that served as the cover of Molly Hatchet's 1979 album Flirtin' With Disaster, sold at Heritage Auctions last week for a record $6 million.

Flirtin' With Disaster was a high-water mark of Southern hard rock and a milestone for the band, ranking as their bestselling LP with U.S. sales exceeding 2 million. Songs like the title track and "Whiskey Man" are mainstays in the group's oeuvre, but part of the LP's success can surely be attributed to Frazetta's masterful artwork, which depicts a heavily armored warrior standing on a pile of bones.

Saturday nights usually don't have a Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day. Tonight is different.

Rodney Smith Jr., of Huntsville, Alabama, was recently profiled by KMBC for his generous donation to two 11-year-olds who fulfilled his 50 Yard Challenge in Gadsden, Alabama. Ja’Torrian Taylor and Tevin Rice, founders of TJ & JT Mowing Service, completed Smith’s challenge to mow 50 yards for the elderly, veterans, and people unable to care for their lawns for free.

"I’m heading down to Gadsden right now. These are good, hard-working kids that deserve some gratitude," Smith, known as "The Lawnmower Man," told KMBC. Smith had been told that Taylor and Rice were sharing an old lawnmower that a neighbor had donated to them.

Wish he was closer to me, my lawn needs mowing. The wheels aren't working this summer.

There are numerous reasons why this unproductive human being is our Genius Award Winner.

JUNE 27--A Minnesota man is behind bars following an unprovoked Skittles attack on restaurant patrons and employees, police report.

Investigators say that Tristan Stetina, 19, walked into a Mankato eatery Friday afternoon and “began throwing Skittles at employees and customers.”

A woman identified as “Victim 1” in a court filing told police that she was “hit in the back with a Skittle which caused a stinging pain.”

Upon arriving at the restaurant, a cop “noticed Skittles all over the gound and a bag of Skittles near the garbage.” The suspect, “Victim 1” told police, had a “heart shaped tattoo under his eye and another tattoo on the side of his face.”

Based on the description provided by the woman, police “knew the male to be Tristan Stetina.” Seen above, Stetina has twice been arrested by Mankato police in recent months
