Sunday funnies

Apparently the holes in Swiss cheese are disappearing.

I thought it was too good to be true: "I Fooled Millions Into Thinking Chocolate Helps Weight Loss" (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

Sounds like a pretty good deal: "Kenyan Lawyer Offers 50 Cows, 70 Sheep And 30 Goats For Barack Obama’s 16-Year-Old Daughter Malia" (another H/T to the Captain).

I'm amazed that some marriages ever survive the wedding ceremony.

That's not on the menu, buddy.

Lost in translation.

New this summer from Monsieur Paqeau's Menswear.

Nice collection this morning, Paco! I especially like the chocolate diet scam. An excellent example of how people are being manipulated by the media.

With some good news buried in it, where people don't always buy the crap pawned off on us.

I think "luftmensch" is my new favorite word, because I know so many people like that.

My first thought: Global Warmining strikes again!

Paco said...

I'm pretty sure that's the real reason.

Baku-shan. I've known a few of those. I even took one out to dinner & a movie once.

She was a truck driver, BTW.

R-man: This reminds me of one of my most "Duh!" moments. Many years ago, a female work colleague was telling me about how she had taken piano lessons in her youth, and how her instructor told her she had a wide piano spread. I said, "Yeah, I guess that can happen if you spend too much time sitting on a piano stool." She glared at me and said that the expression referred to the spread of her fingers.

rinardman said...

I'm sure you made that up.

But it's still funny.

Paco said...

No, it actually happened.
