And Happy New Year! We are starting the Roaring Twenties! Although, that’s already been used, maybe we need to come up with something else. The Raging Twenties? Isn’t that a bit more appropriate? Ah, maybe we’ll discuss that later.
I’m actually starting this on Christmas Day! How ‘bout dat! That’s because it’s been a nice relaxing week … not … it’s been CRAZY!!!
But it’s done.
Christmas has culminated in the gift giving and the loving of the family and the all of that and now Mrs. Dragon is napping and Izzy Dragon is in the middle of a game that she is immersed in that we might not see her again until March … or perhaps April … and it’s not quite late enough in the evening for me to partake of one of my Christmas presents … wait … hang on, I’ve got a picture …
That’s a bottle of good Irish Whisky in a globe decanter with a ship inside of it … Now, my brother, God rest his soul, would argue that there is better Irish Whisky, and Lethal Leprechaun, God rest HIS soul … or maybe God’s soul … you gotta wonder how much trouble Lethal’s causing upstairs right now, but I digress, … Lethal would also argue that there is better, but for the money, Jameson is a really good Irish Whisky and just as soon as I think it’s morally correct …. say, anytime after one in the afternoon or at least noon, there’s going to be a whisky rocks with Impish’s name on it.
So, in the meantime, why don’t we get this issue off the ground?
I don’t always go the extra mile, but when I do, it’s because I missed my exit.
Instead of presents this year, I’m giving everyone my opinion.
Christmas is just plain weird. What other time of year do you sit in front of a dead tree in the living room and eat candy out of your socks.
Once, there was a lumberjack who wandered into a magical forest. As he swung his axe, the tree said “don’t cut me down, I’m a talking tree!”
The lumberjack replied, “and you will dialogue.”
Yes, I know it was pretty bad, but it’s so hard to find any jokes nowadays that we have to use what we get. Send some high quality jokes and I’ll print some high quality jokes, keep sending me this stuff and … well … you understand.
Okay, that sounded really harsh…like I didn’t appreciate the talking tree joke. I did appreciate the talking tree joke and the word play with the word “dialogue” and … oh never mind… even my harsh but playful critic and humorous apology isn’t making it.
Let’s just move on.
Do they have restaurants in Japan where American people cook in front of you with lawn chairs and a grill?
I ALWAYS get the last word in my cavern with Mrs. Dragon and I mean, every, single, time.
And that’s because I’m the Dragon of my household!
And you better believe it!
And what is that last word you ask?
That last word is, and always has been, “Yes, Ma’am.”
I feel like water solves all problems…
Want to lose weight? Drink Water.
Clear up your skin? Drink Water.
Tired of a person? Drown Them.
Best Childhood Memory…
Falling asleep on the couch and waking up in bed. I miss teleporting. It never happens to me anymore.
I was in a job interview today when the manager handed me his laptop and said, “I want you to try to sell this to me.”
So, I put it under my arm, walked out of the building, and went home.
Eventually, he called my cell phone and said, “Bring it back here right now!”
I said, “$200, and it’s yours.”
Thanks, Mr. Obvious.
Wildly funny and crushingly true.
And if you think that’s not possible to come out of the same person’s mouth, I’ve actually heard it.
Yup, I knew it was going to happen. Now, I feel like crying. So, let’s get back to the LAUGHTER!!!!!
I SPEAK MY MIND
Because it hurts to bite my tongue all the time.
Apparently you have to eat healthy more than once to get in shape and gain any benefit from it. I find this to be cruel and unfair.
My stomach is FLAT. The L is just silent.
You will not believe what just happened. I go to the gas station to get fuel and noticed 2 officers watching some guy who was smoking while he was pumping his gas. I saw him & thought: 1. This guy has no common sense & 2. Is he really that stupid with officers right there, too? Anyways, as I was pumping my gasoline, I heard screaming & looked across the way. This idiot’s arm was on fire! He was swinging his arm & running around going crazy!
I watched as the officers had put him on the ground & were putting the fire out with their coffees! YES, THEIR COFFEES! Then, they handcuffed him & threw him in the back of the patrol car. I said to myself, That’s what you get, shouldn’t have been smoking near the pump while getting gas!!
So, being the nosy person that I am, I asked them, “What are you charging him with, being stupid?” One of the officers looked dead at me and said: “FOR WAVING A FIREARM!!!”
OH MY GOSH! This is so Izzy right now! Don’t get me wrong. She can work her way through a computer like nobody’s business, knows her way around stuff that I may never know, but send her to the kitchen for the salt and pepper and your liable to get cat food and coffee creamer. And we don’t even OWN a cat.
Although who ever really owns a cat…it’s more like a cat owns you, but I digress…
My wife asked me to take her to one of those restaurants where they make the food right in front of you. So I took her to Subway and that’s how the fight started.
Picked up a hitch-hiker. Seemed like a nice guy.
After a few miles, he asked me if I wasn’t afraid that he might be a serial killer?
I told him that the odds of two serial killers being in the same car were extremely unlikely.
Taking Viagra for my sunburn. It doesn’t cure it, but it keeps the sheets off my legs.
Sounds like a really good resolution to me!
If it’s true that stress brings on weight loss, why the hell am I not invisible?
I’m still not coming up with anything…what’ve you guys got?
Definitely sounds like this place!
Confuse your doctor by putting on rubber gloves at the same time he does.
I detect a theme…
I don’t think the therapist is supposed to say “wow” that many times in your first session but here we are.
I went line dancing last night. Well, it was a roadside sobriety test…same thing.
It’s been a bit of a strange day! First, I found a hat full of money. Then I was chased by an angry man with a guitar…
Sex After Surgery
A recent article in the Daily Post reported that a man, Dave Harper, has sued St. Paul’s Hospital, saying that after his wife had surgery there, she lost all interest in sex.
A hospital spokesman replied: “Mrs. Harper was admitted for cataract surgery. All we did was correct her eyesight.”
The Three Hardest Things To Say Are:
- I was wrong
- I need help
- Worcestershire Sauce
Okay, so this is an old joke, but still so very funny…
One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part where Chicken Little warns the farmer. She read, “…and Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, ‘The sky is falling!’” The teacher then asked the class, “And what do you think that farmer said?”
One little girl raised her hand and said, “I think he said, ‘Holy Shit! A talking Chicken!’”
The teacher was unable to teach for the next ten minutes.
Told my wife I wanted to be cremated. She made me an appointment for Tuesday.
If you remove the first letter if Empty,
it’s pronounced the same way.
If you remove the last letter,
it’s still pronounced the same.
Even if you go on to remove the first, third and last letters,
you’ll still be left with ‘MT.’
And if you remove every letter,
it’s still empty.
Some really old and some really bad sports quotes
Don Meredith, Dallas Cowboy Quarterback, once said: “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.”
Harry Neale, professional hockey coach: “Last year we couldn’t win at home and we were losing on the road. My failure as a coach was that I couldn’t think of any place else to play.”
Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver: “Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch.”
Doug Sanders, professional golfer: “I’m working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time. If I can just die after lunch on Tuesday, everything will be perfect.”
Mickey Lolich, Detroit Tigers pitcher: “All the fat guys watch me and say to their wives, ‘See, there is a fat guy doing great. Bring me another beer.’”

Vic Braden, tennis instructor: “My theory is that if you buy an ice cream cone and make it hit your mouth, you can learn to play tennis. If you stick it on your forehead, your chances aren’t as good.”
Walt Garrison, Dallas Cowboys fullback when asked if Tom Landry ever smiles: “I don’t know. I only played there for nine years.”

Lou Holtz, Arkansas football coach: “I have a lifetime contract. That means I can’t be fired during the third quarter if we’re ahead and moving the ball.”
Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had lost a game: “I won’t know until my barber tells me on Monday.”
Bill Walton, Portland Trail Blazers: “I learned a long time ago that ‘minor surgery’ is when they do the operation on someone else, not you.”
George MacIntyre, Vanderbilt football coach surveying the team roster that included 26 freshmen and 25 sophomores: “Our biggest concern this season will be diaper rash.”
Rick Venturi, Northwestern football coach: “The only difference between me and General Custer is that I have to watch the films on Sunday.”
And that is it for this week my dear, dear friends.
I hope you and your family have a very Happy and prosperous New Year !!!!! How about the
