    Professur had a couple jokes earlier that mentioned church bells, Sunday morning and a religious program.

    For some reason, made me think of this guy.

    Any of y'all remember Gene Scott?

    "http://www.ebaumsworld.com/media/embed/81236512"

    Hmmm, won't let me embed that one. And it's probably the best one I can find.

    Here's some others:

    Yes! The way Mayor Bill De Blasio has been reverting NYC back to the David Dinkins days a reboot of the Death Wish series would not be too far of a leap. But teh question begs, who'd play the Paul Kersey role that Bronson did so well?

    Brain Cramps by Famous People
    Quotes made by famous people without much thought...

    On September 17, 1994, Alabama's Heather Whitestone was selected as Miss America 1995. Here's her answer to her question...
    Question: If you could live forever, would you and why?
    Answer: "I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever." -- Heather Whitestone

    "Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff." -- Mariah Carey

    "Smoking kills. If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life." -- Brooke Shields, during an interview to become Spokesperson for federal anti-smoking campaign.

    "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country." -- Mayor Marion Barry, Washington, DC.

    "I'm not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president." -- Hillary Clinton commenting on the release of subpoenaed documents.

    "That lowdown scoundrel deserves to be kicked to death by a jackass, and I'm just the one to do it." -- A congressional candidate in Texas.

    "It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it." -- Al Gore, Vice President

    A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The
    teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow
    a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat
    was very small.

    The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
    Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow
    a human; it was physically impossible.

    The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".
    The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?" The little girl
    replied, "Then you ask him."

    Just a reminder that the male Clinton is as bad as the female one....

    “I think the country could be spared a lot of agony and the government could worry about inflation and a lot of other problems if [Nixon would] go on and resign. [There is] no question that an admission of making false statements to government officials and interfering with the FBI and the CIA is an impeachable offense.” — Bill Clinton on Richard Nixon in 1974

    “The other thing we have to do is to take seriously the role in this problem of…older men who prey on underage women… There are consequences to decisions and…one way or the other, people always wind up being held accountable” — Bill Clinton on teen pregnancy in 1996

    “I ask that all Americans demonstrate in their personal and public lives…the high ethical standards that are essential to good character and to the continued success of our Nation — Bill Clinton in 1997 during National Character Counts Week.

    “The road to tyranny, we must never forget, begins with the destruction of the truth” — Bill Clinton in 1995

    “There’s just no such thing as truth when it comes to him. He just says whatever sounds good and worries about it after the election” — Bill Clinton on George Bush during the 1992 election

    “No wonder Americans hate politics when, year in and year out, they hear politicians make promises that won’t come true because they don’t even mean them – campaign fantasies that win elections but don’t get nations moving again” — Bill Clinton during the 1992 election

    “It is wrong to raise money on the promise of guaranteeing specific kinds of access. That is wrong and we have stopped that” — Bill Clinton, 1995

    An honest seven-year-old admitted calmly to her parents that
    Billy Brown had kissed her after class. "How did that happen?"
    gasped her mother.

    "It wasn't easy," admitted the young lady, "but three girls
    helped me catch him."

    Entertaining as hell. Much better than anything on TV nowadays.

    The guy was a nut.

    I can remember minutes of just dead air. He'd say something like I'm not gonna say a word until someone calls in and donates. And he'd just sit there smoking his cigar.

    I can also remember him wearing hypno glasses similar to these

    Fav. saying. "You don't have to park your brain at the door to church here". He had many millions worth of very rare Bibles in that church (former Mary Pickford Theater) in downtown LA. His wife sold the church, and I wonder what she did with the Bibles.

    Still having a bad day? Just remember, it could be worse.
    This was taken from a Florida Newspaper. Read on...

    1. The average cost of rehabilitating one seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild, amid cheers and applause from onlookers. One minute later, in full view of everyone, a killer whale ate them both.

    2. A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen, shaking frantically with what looked like a wire running from his waist towards the electric kettle. Intending to jolt him away from the deadly current she whacked him with a handy plank of wood by the back door, breaking his arm in two places. Until that moment he had been happily listening to his Walkman.

    3. Two animal right protesters were protesting at the cruelty of sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn, Germany. Suddenly the pigs - all 2,000 of them - escaped through a broken fence and stampeded, trampling the two hapless protesters to death.

    And finally...

    5. Iraqi terrorist, Khay Rahnajet, didn't pay enough postage on a letter bomb. It came back with "return to sender" stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits.

    Now, YOUR day's not so bad, is it???

    Used to drink a lot of those Mickeys Big Mouth, back in the day. When you're 135 #s and bone skinny they would put you on the floor pretty quick. They tasted pretty good, too.

    I nominate Duane Johnson as Paul Kersey. He would do. Also, if Duane would be a little too massive to be believable as an every guy, Mel Gibson could pull it off. I saw him recently in a flick called 'Blood Father' and he was excellent. It was about a guy who had an estranged daughter who called him out of the blue and was in big trouble and needs help. Catch it, if ya get the chance.

    I'd go with a reboot and use a woman (Paula Kersey?) and NO! not the "Brave one" (2007) debacle of a movie starring Jodie Foster. Krikes! What a waste of celluloid! I'd go with a Summer Glau, Caty Lotz, Michelle Rodriguez or even a Gina Carano for the role and remain true to the original story.

    It could work. The only female actor you mentioned that I'm familiar with is Summer Glau from Firefly. I liked JF in The Brave One. I thought she was decent.

    Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal, they lay down for the night and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. Holmes said: "Watson, look up and tell me what you see".

    Watson said: "I see a fantastic panorama of countless stars."

    Holmes: "And what does that tell you?"

    Watson pondered for a moment: "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow."

    "Why? - What does it tell you, Holmes?"

    Holmes was silent for a moment then spoke: "My good Watson... someone has stolen our tent."

    K, hamms in pancakes. Shit you not. Have tried a bunch of others yet the. Children preferred hamms. Look wiener-heads, ya replace water with hamms. Sure I use milk also.

    You can use hamms OR you can go all fun and demented and buriersyeast some sourdough.

    Remember when you used to have to go to the liqueur store to get Schlitz malt liqueur?
