The Saturday Night Joke

A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little gray hair he had left. Amazing, he thought as he flew down I-94, pushing the pedal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, What am I doing? I’m too old for this, and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.

Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.”

The old gentleman paused. Then he said, “Years ago, my wife ran off with a state trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.”

“Have a good day, sir,” replied the trooper.

I'll admit it. I've been turned around in the forest. And quite confused where I was. I'm very lucky, I've never been lost for a day let alone 9 days.

I Survived Being Lost For Nine Days

In June 2021, Andrew Devers disappeared after setting out for a dayhike in Washington’s Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

I couldn’t help but appreciate the beauty of the spot where I would probably die. The cuts on my knee were getting infected, and I didn’t have the energy to move, but I didn’t want to leave, anyway: Salmonberry bushes surrounded the plush, mossy rock where I lay, so I ate from a buffet of berries while resting on nature’s Tempurpedic. The area had a clear view of the sky where I could spot approaching helicopters, if anyone cared enough to search for me.

I hate to break it to you. But if you answer this quiz with more correct answers than wrong, you are older than 29.

I don't know what will be the last state I visit. Unfortunately, it won't be North Dakota.

Join the Best for Last Club in Fargo, ND

If you’re planning to visit all 50 states, we have a proposition for you: save North Dakota for last.

It’s not that we don’t want you to see our great state – believe us, we love visitors – but there’s something in it for you.

We’ve started a Best for Last Club, an exclusive club created for those who visited all fifty states and saved the best state (that’s us!) for last.

North Dakota can claim to having interesting public boat landings. Here was a welcome group when we arrived last month to fish.

Stereotypes via AI.(H/T Orangeent)

WASHINGTON (TND) — Artificial intelligence is everywhere and photography is no exception.

We've already shown you three photo galleries featuring images created by text prompts to AI.

First, we asked AI to show us what the average couple looks like in each U.S. state.

Then we told AI to give us "hilarious representations" of each state.

Never let it be said The ONT didn't cover the culture of others.

The Beloved Mexican Whistle That Means ‘Fuck You’
It’s probably impossible to find a Mexican that doesn’t recognize the shrill sound of the “chinga tu madre” whistle. How it’s used can cause people to either laugh or fight.

MEXICO CITY—As masked wrestlers Virus and El Audaz threw punches and kicks, jumped from the top ropes, and suplexed each other at Mexico City’s legendary lucha libre, a kid dressed in a red, white, and green mask watching from the bleachers let out a loud and infamous whistle. Five sharp tones, in a distinct warbling cadence, that signifies arguably Mexico's most notorious five-syllable phrase — “chinga tu madre.”


Daniel Rodríguez, 12, can’t do that at school, he said, “because the teacher will scold me,” a wily smirk poking out from beneath his lucha libre mask.

While chinga tu madre literally translates as “fuck your mother,” it’s used in a more colloquial sense the way that English speakers throw around the phrase “fuck you.” Between friends, it’s a fun jab to a buddy, but with enemies, strangers, or friends gone wrong, it can lead to bloodshed.
