  1. Your bad taste cheap joke:

    After my wife died of a heart attack i didn’t want to settle down again straight away, i wanted to have some fun first. So i went online to find a young girl with big tits that i could have casual sex with.

    Needless to say my inlaws weren’t impressed. They thought i should have called an ambulance first.

  2. Your crap joke for the day:

    An old Italian guy goes into the confessional box .. “Father, during world War 2 I rescued a beautiful Jewish girl from the Nazis & hid her in my attic. To show her gratitude, she used to shag me every night & give me 2 blow jobs on a Sunday.” “My son,” said the Priest, “it was a very difficult time in our lives & you shouldn’t feel so guilty.” “I know,” said the old guy, “but should I tell her the War is over?

  3. Kick Ass 2:

    Plot not as good as the first film, Jim Carey hardly in it, nice fight choreography,
    And it has a post credit sequence (short).

  4. My kitty thinks all should be about her. I think it should be about…
    Alter Egos

    The DVR write up: a down on his luck superhero attempts to confront his cheating girlfriend in this hilarious and innovative comedy set in a world where the public have grown tired of costumed crime fighters.

    Remember, innovative and hilarious

      • Not to mention that this nerdblock ships from Canada. I was on the fence about the $19.99 per month until I saw that shipping for me would be an additional $9.50 per month putting the whole thing squarely outside my price range. This has the potential to be a company like Archie Mcphee that started out selling such products as rubber chickens, old toys produced for cereal boxes and odd trinkets from other countries through a mail order catalog (pre-internet) and eventually started producing their own products to find their own particular sub-culture of customers. Would be great to get in at the start for something like that, but I just can’t swing 30 a month right now.

  5. Your crap joke for a wet Friday morning:

    An elderly man driving erratically was stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and was asked where he was going at that time of night.The man replied, “I’m on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”The officer then asked, “Really? Who’s giving that lecture at this time of night? The man replied, “That would be my wife.”

    • ..and your bonus crap joke is:

      Why God never got a PhD

      1. He had only one major publication.
      2. It was written in Aramaic, not in English.
      3. It has no references.
      4. It wasn’t even published in a refereed journal.
      5. There are serious doubts he wrote it himself.
      6. It may be true that he created the world, but what has he done since
      7. His cooperative efforts have been quite limited.
      8. The Scientific community has had a hard time replicating his results.
      9. He unlawfully performed not only Animal, but *Human* testing.
      10. When one experiment went awry, he tried to cover it by drowning his
      11. When subjects didn’t behave as predicted, he deleted them from
      the sample.
      12. He rarely came to class, just told his students to read the book.
      13. Some say he had his son to teach the class.
      14. He expelled his first two students for learning.
      15. Although there were only 10 requirements, most of his students
      failed his tests.
      16. His office hours were infrequent and usually held on a mountain top.

  6. I’ve been meaning to ask since the new season of Arrested Development came out on Netflix. Did any of the Phoenix group see the new season with the attempt of one of the characters to move to Phoenix? My only trip there was in the winter so I wasn’t able to fully appreciate it from first hand experience, but I definitely got what they were going for.

  7. Well, I’m hot blooded, check it and see
    I got a fever of a hundred and three
    Come on baby, do you..



    • I’m primarily a “multitasker” because of the “It’s Complicated”, “Bathroom Reader” and “Audiobook Listener” status. I have a hard copy book in the bathroom at home, an audiobook that I listen to when I’m doing tasks that wouldn’t allow regular reading (like washing the dishes), and an ebook on my phone for any other time I can find to squeeze in a page or two. Takes me 3 months to read 3 books, but (dammit) I will get through them!

    • Why, thanks for asking, Bunny! I will announce the Rotating Category (or categories???) in Episode 284, when I announce the whole official DotF Royale with Cheese Doodle contestants and final rules….

  8. Amazon is asking me how many times I’ve wanted to print something from Facebook. Then it offers me some sort of super fancy printer.

    I wasn’t aware that printing something from Facebook was such an arcane art that it required a special magic printer to do.

  10. Tonight I had a comedy retrospective evening.
    Two films I had never seen.

    Marx Brother’s “Duck Soup”.
    Jerry Lewis “Whose minding the store”.

    Duck Soup was so discombobulated it almost made me feel trippy.

    The Jerry Lewis movie was so tiring it made me wish I was tripping.

    Amazing that Lewis and the Marx Bros were such huge cultural icons. Both films did have moments that made me laugh out loud … but all in all, I will never again think that bad comedy movies showed up with Jim Carey or Adam Sandler.

    • I’m not a Jerry Lewis fan, but you have to keep in mind that these comedians were playing in the sandboxes of their time. There are probably better Marx Brothers Movies (Duck Soup wasn’t a big success for them) and I encourage you to keep trying with them. Again, I haven’t really watched Jerry Lewis so I can’t judge for him, but to put the Marx Brothers in a category with Jim Carey and Adam Sandler seems a bit harsh. Feel free to put the Three Stooges in that category (although I love the Stooges far, far more than Jim or Adam) because it was a mindless and purely visual/physical style of humor. I think the Marx Brothers actually went a long way in moving us past the purely visual/physical style of vaudeville comedy of the time, into more intelligent humor that one had to pay attention to in order to catch everything that was going on.

      • Yes, I didn’t really mean to lump the Marx and Lewis comedy styles together. I guess I was holding them up as examples of comedian’s who were KINGS of their particular sandboxes, but now their shtick seemed awfully thin.

        Not unfunny though!
        As I said, both made me laugh out loud at times but in the case of Lewis, I found his bit grew very tiresome after 10 minutes or so. Not really enough to support a feature length movie by himself. I believe that’s probably why he did so well when he teamed up with Dean Martin. As a co-star, his shtick wouldn’t have to support the whole film.

        As for the Marx Bros film, it was just exhausting.
        The one liners were funny but they came at you in an unrelenting, machine-gun fashion and I found myself becoming numb to it.
        I do want to check out some of their other films though. I suspect if they were simply co-stars in a movie, where they appeared for a minute or so every other scene to add some humor, it might work quite well.

        • I’ve never seen any Jerry Lewis films. I find his style so grating, I doubt if I’d be able to stand it for more than a few minutes.

          I’ve only seen isolated clips from Duck Soup, and enjoyed mpst of them, but then I wouldn’t suffer the exhaustion J0e mentioned just from watching clips.

    • Hmmm, I know I had posted a comment to this last night, but now it’s not here. Ah well, I can’t remember what it was anyway.

      –default pithy comment place holder–

  11. Hey guys, I’m back. The new job has me busy, very busy. The office is great, the people are great, the schedule of work, no so much. Hopefully things will mellow out in a few months, but if they don’t I may have to start looking again. Time will tell. Anyways, I hope everything is good in Deadpan Land.

  12. Fav tweet of the day:

    @Moochava: Yearly reminder: unless you’re over 60, you weren’t promised flying cars. You were promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia. Here you go.

  13. Crap joke for a Sunday evening:

    Never give a woman advice, you can’t win. Our lass asked me to think of a pass word with 4 letters for her new on line slimming class. XXXL, went down like a lead balloon…I’m single again…

  14. I just went looking through the house for the cat. I looked everywhere. Where did I find her, in her basket. I looked there once already but only saw her teddy bear. She’s the same colour as her bear so she just blended right in. *sigh* silly kitty :silly:

  15. So there!
    Hemorrhaging faucet (far more then a “leak”) has been replaced.
    This project’s plumbing surprise? The cut-off valve for the hot water supply, does not. So I turn of the valves under the sink, disconnect the faucet and the hot water line immediately starts peeing on me.

    Fortunately I had just emptied a gallon milk jug and could use it as a reservoir.

    Now is the several hour waiting period where I watch closely for leaks.

    I hate plumbing.

  16. Good Morning, Pannites!

    This Pixie is just now starting to flutter her winfs for the day.

    EssBee and Jack– I cant wait to hear the slowed down version of Jolene. It is an all-time favorite song of mine.

    Justaj0e- I love plumbs

    Lo Pan — Satan *does* live. He (She?) lives in the many dark places that is Mental Illness.

    Pandora and I jave enjoyed a snoozefest but now it is time to tackle the dog groomer!

  17. Visited this place on Sunday gone:


    Unlike the guy who shot the video, I could only walk around the security fence (getting a bit too old to jump overspikes fences)

    The hospital grounds look a perfect setting for a post apocalypse movie, over grown roads and dead street lamps..
