Canadians Don't Study History, Dummy!

From Angelique:
I was on a message board. Someone posted about it being Bastille day. This chick replies "What's the Bastille? Is it a new store?" I started cracking up. Guy replies "Um, it's an important event in French history." "Oh! I'm Canadian so I didn't know that!"

You Park Like an Idiot

Check out this idiot! Sweet parking job, dude. Sender-inner Donna R. says,
"Background story: It's right in front of the restaurant they were going to. The people had no injuries, no babies that required time to get in and out of a carseat, and stayed in the restaurant to eat at for at least 40 minutes."

The Magic Bag

I used to work in a refunds department, and this submission takes me back.

"Last week, a guy came back with a plastic zipper bag from a pillow and said that he bought it but that no pillow came inside it. How do you not notice that the pillow is missing from a see through bag? And more importantly, what kind of idiot thinks we are dumb enough to believe him when he tries to scam us?"

Maybe he thought it was some kind of magic bag that rendered its contents completely invisible.

Thanks to iloveduckies!

How can you serve on the Supreme Court if you eat yucky food?!


Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor said the following:

"My Latina identity also includes, because of my particularly adventurous taste buds, morcilla, -- pig intestines, patitas de cerdo con garbanzo -- pigs' feet with beans, and la lengua y orejas de cuchifrito, pigs' tongue and ears."

According to Hill reporter Alexander Bolton,
"This has prompted some Republicans to muse privately about whether Sotomayor is suggesting that distinctive Puerto Rican cuisine such as patitas de cerdo con garbanzo -- pigs' tongue and ears -- would somehow, in some small way influence her verdicts from the bench."

Seriously...? Seriously?! I can't even think of anything to say about that.

Thanks for the tip, Schwarzie.

So wait, is Jon the guy?

Here, sender-inner Darter tells us about her friend, the genius:

My Ivy league educated '09 friend, headed to a top NYC law firm next year: "What's the name of the guy from Jon and Kate?"

How To Move A Large Television

Step 1. Hoist television into truck bed.
Step 2. Packing tape!
Step 3. Drive.

Wasn't that simple?

Thanks, Catherine S.!
