    Hey.. hey.. hey. Don't forget the Floundering Fathers. Let's do this reunion RIGHT. Make manila GREAT AGAIN.

    Too bad Durante fcked up the Philippines or I would suggest trading some of that friggen gold for a cold San Miguels and a filipina. Get those pipes cleaned. You know what I mean?

    Works better for us old curmudgeons than Marvel Mystery Oil on a '56 Packard.

    Ok,,,, ok.. I know it's tacky. But knock down [quite] a few of these cold brews and you think you died and arrived at that friggen muslim paradise:

    I'm way out of practice. I used to write short story's 25+ yrs ago. Made a few $$ but never enough to live on, so I took up something else in life. The base is true meaning we did stop at Tarzan's to get a shot of Freon. He supposedly fixed it a month ago and so the shot was for free. All the rest was pure imagination.

    Summer job 1981, collecting trash in the Santa Cruz mountains with two buddies, and what do we find sitting in one of the cans, but an ice-cold 6 pack of Moosehead!

    We rang the bell of the mansion and asked the guy if he intended to toss the beer.

    He told us he had put it in the freezer to cool it, forgot about it and now it was ruined; mumbled something about the molecular structure.

    Best two beers I ever drank!

    I've put beers in the freezer before to cool them fast and have forgotten a few in there. Most of the time it kills them dead, carbonation all gone, but Boston Lager in the cans is still pretty decent after you let them thaw out a bit. It's magic stuff.

    A Bad Day

    There I was is sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

    "Well, whatcha gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

    "Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY. I can`t stand to see a man crying."

    "This is the worst day of my life," I say. "I'm a complete failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my old lady in bed with the gardener and then my dog bit me."

    "So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve; then you, you jack-ass, show up and drink the whole thing! But enough about me, how's your day going?"

    "Oldtimers"
    A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things.

    They decide to go to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.

    Later that night while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair.

    His wife asks, "Where are you going?"

    "To the kitchen," he replies.

    "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"

    "Sure."

    "Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?" she asks.

    "No, I can remember it."

    "Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. You'd better write it down, because you know you'll forget it."

    He says, "I can remember that! You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."

    "I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, so you'd better write it down!" she retorts.

    Irritated, he says, "I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Leave me alone! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream -- I got it, for goodness sake!" Then he grumbles into the kitchen.

    After about 20 minutes the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.

    She stares at the plate for a moment and says... "Where's my toast?

    Best Sex Ever for Oldtimers...

    An elderly couple is enjoying an anniversary dinner together in a small town. The husband leans over and asks his wife, "Do you remember the first time we had sex together over fifty years ago? We went behind this tavern where you leaned against the fence and I made love to you." Yes," she says, "I remember it well." OK," he says, "how about taking a stroll round there again and we can do it for old time's sake?

    "Oooooooh Henry, you devil, that sounds like a good idea," she answers.

    There's a police officer sitting in the next booth listening to all this, having a chuckle to himself. He thinks, "I've got to see these two old-timers having sex against a fence. I'll just keep an eye on them so there's no trouble." So he follows them.. They walk haltingly along leaning on each other for support, aided by walking sticks.

    Finally they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence. The old lady lifts her skirt, takes her knickers down and the old man drops his trousers. She turns around and as she hangs on to the fence, the old man moves in. Suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that the watching policeman has ever seen. They are bucking and jumping like eighteen- year-olds. This goes on for about forty minutes! She's yelling, "Ohhh, God!" He's hanging on to her hips for dear life. This is the most athletic sex imaginable. Finally, they both collapse panting on the ground.

    The policeman is amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life that he didn't know. After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on.

    The policeman, still watching thinks, that was truly amazing, he was going like a train. I've got to ask him what his secret is. As the couple passes, he says to them, "That was something else! You must have been having sex for about forty minutes. How do you manage it? "You must have had a fantastic life together. Is there some sort of a secret?"

    The old man says, "Fifty years ago that wasn't an electric fence."

    Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95 year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied, "He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning." Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. "Oh no, my dear," replied granny. "Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "He'd still be alive if the ice cream truck hadn't come along."

    An old couple were sitting in their living room on a Sunday morning watching a religious program. The preacher on this show would go to all the people in the audience and asking them what they wanted fixed, then he would have them cover the part of their body they wanted fixed. Many of the people were elderly so they were covering their eyes and hearts. Then the preacher said "Ok now for you at home put your hand on the part of your body you want fixed and say this prayer with me. "So the little old lady put her hand on her heart, because she had a very bad heart. And the little old man put his hands on his crotch. The little old lady turned to her husband and said "He said he could heal the sick, not raise the dead!"
