I’m really proud of BrainRants being what he is, and doing what he does to preserve our way of life. He has reasons for spending almost half his life in the U. S. Military, reasons he’s admitted to himself, reasons he’s given to others. For those of you who wonder, on June 14th, it was all explained. These are David Letterman’s TOP 10 Reasons To Love Being In The U.S Army.
10: You haven’t lived until you’ve eaten rehydrated beef brisket.
9: You get to visit exotic places, like Trenton, New Jersey.
8: No can opener??! Just run over it with a tank.
7: Sir, you’re never unsure how to begin and end a sentence, Sir!
6: Cutting edge technology, like our machine that controls the weather.
5: I really, really, really, really enjoy pushups.
4: In an Apache attack helicopter, you tend to have the right of way.
3: Always have an answer when some fool says, “You and whose Army?”
2: Camouflage brings out my eyes.
1: Working among the most talented men and women this country has to offer….and the free haircuts.
An old lady goes to her doctor and says, “I have this problem with frequent gas. Fortunately, when I pass them, they never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, I’ve passed gas at least ten times since I’ve been here, and I bet you never even noticed!”
The doctor says, “I see. Take these pills, and come back to see me again next week.”
The next week the old lady comes back. “Doctor” she says, “I don’t know what you gave me, but now my silent rippers stink like the dickens.”
The doctor says, “Good! Now that we’ve cleared up your sinuses, let’s get to work on your hearing.”
While grocery shopping, a budget-watching, and environmentally aware university student comes across toilet brushes. “Wow! What a great idea!’ he thinks to himself, and buys three of them.
Two weeks later, however, after much pain and aggravation, he goes back to using toilet paper.
A rookie pitcher was struggling on the mound, so the catcher walked out to have a word with him. “I’ve figured out your problem.” he told the young pitcher. “You always lose control at the same point in every game.” “When is that?” asked the rookie. “Right after the National Anthem!”
Wine And Dine
Two older people were flirting at a seniors’ singles bar. After a few drinks, the old man asks the old woman, “If I took you out for a full night of wining, dining and dancing, what would you wear?” The old gal replies shyly, “Depends….”
“Depends on what?” he asks. “On my butt….where else?”
One Sunday, a pastor asked his congregation to consider giving a little extra in the offering plate. He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns. After the offering plates were passed, the pastor noticed that someone had contributed a $100 bill. Extremely grateful, he wanted to personally thank the generous person in front of the whole congregation.
A quiet, elderly widow shyly raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front. He told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much, and asked her to pick out three hymns. Her eyes brightened as she pointed to the three handsomest men in the congregation: “I’ll take him, and him, and him!”
Oh dear! This isn’t working out well. That’s the third old codger story in this post. I’m like the guy from Pompeii who knows 500 lava jokes. Distraction – distraction, I know, let’s poke fun at airheads.
The pretty young lady had sharp pains in her side. The doctor examined her and said, “You have acute appendicitis.” She replied, “That’s sweet Doc, but I came here for some medical help.”
First Class Act
Kim Kardhasian boarded a plane from New York to L.A with a ticket for coach, because that was all that was available and she wanted to get back to the coast quickly. Once she boarded, she marched up front and chose a seat in First Class. The flight attendant checked her ticket and told her to move back to her assigned seat.
She immediately did everything except stamp her feet, hold her breath and turn blue. “I’m Kim Kardhasian, and I’m going to sit right here, all the way to L.A.!” Never having been exposed to a celebutant’s temper tantrum before, the flight attendant is flustered. She goes to the cockpit and informs the Captain. The Captain goes back and briefly whispers something in Kimmie’s ear.
She immediately gets up, gives the Captain a quick hug, and rushes back to her seat in the coach section. The flight attendant is amazed, and asks him what he said to get her to quietly move. “I just told her that the First Class section isn’t going all the way to L.A. today.”
And, to end on a technological note:
Clean And Reboot
The cleaning lady was tidying up for the wealthy computer-whiz. She commented that he had a nice-looking PC. He looked frustrated, and said, “Yeah, it’s top of the line, but with this new operating system, I can’t seem to get any of my programs to start up today. Maybe I should let you have a look at it and see if you can figure it out.”
She replied, “I’m sorry sir. I’d love to help you, but I don’t do Windows.”
