Just for Laughs

I was talking on the telephone yesterday to my father, Old Paco, and he said a couple of things that gave me a chuckle.

1) As we usually do, we got around pretty quickly to discussing politics, and we were both damning the Democrats and the Press for jumping on Sarah Palin's lack of foreign policy expertise. "Hell," he said. "You know what an expert is don't you? It's a son of a bitch from outta town carryin' a briefcase."

2) He also told me a joke. An old feller goes into the drug store and gets to talkin' with his friend, the pharmacist, and winds up, kinda sheepishly, mentioning the subject of sexual dysfunction. The pharmacist tells him about Viagra, and what it does. The old feller says, "I reckon that might work. Will I be able to git it over the counter?" The pharmacist looks at his friend intently for a few seconds, nods, and says, "Maybe. If you double the dosage."

Update: Also good for a laugh.

"X" is the unknown quantity.
"Spurt" is a drip under pressure.

An "expert" is someone who is less ignorant on a subject than everyone else.

And I'd pay a lot of money to get it over the counter. ;-p

"X" is a chromosome.
"Spurt" has something to do with it.

Cheers

So you are recommending a Chicago jerkoff for president?

Still laughing hard about the brief case! Some old Irish dude once said "Those that CAN do, do - those that CAN'T DO - teach."
