Dang it, didn't know there was a season. Always so many rules to contend with . . . I guess that's why CBGs are so enjoyable - no rules!

The trouble is it's hard to find out when the season opens.

I've heard they make great firewood. 

They are also good target practice, even the fat lazy ones get quite sprightly when you point a rifle at them.

The best thing about politicians is.......Oh wait, there isn't one.

Time to go build a bunch of new gits, after election day there will be a bunch of people singing the blues regardless of who wins, and they're gonna need instruments. :)

1. Money cannot buy happiness - but it's far more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than on a bicycle.

2. Forgive your enemy - but remember the asshole's name.

3. If you help someone when they're in trouble - they will remember you when they're in trouble again.

4. Alcohol does not solve any problems - but then neither does milk.


 5. Many people are alive only because it's illegal to shoot them.



Condoms do not guarantee safe sex.

A friend was wearing one when he was shot by the woman's husband.

Lovers help each other undress before sex.

However after sex, they always dress on their own.

Moral of the story -- In life, no one helps you once you're screwed.



When a lady is pregnant, all her friends touch the stomach and say, "Congrats".

But, none of them comes up to the man - touches his penis and say, "Good job".

Moral of the story -- Hard work is rarely appreciated.

Out of "focus" good one Duck!  So if don't listen it won't happen? I haven't been listening for years! Just imagine all the crisis that didn't happen because I wasn't listening. They should give me a medal!

Ah, Pete, be careful and remember that when you aren't driving, you could be out of focus.

Yes Wayfinder, cigarettes are actually dinosaur repellent.
