An Indian complained to a doctor that he sometimes felt like living in a wigwam and at others like being in a teeppee. The doctor said, "You're too tense."

That's a rye comment about the Victorian era word for "girl parts," isn't it? In other words,, you were getting bread! Smile That is to say, marmalade with daddy and now she's got a bun in the oven.

Oh, no! She was wearing a Bib* without the use of an inner tube, so now she's feeling inflated and often tired.

*Bib is the nickname for Bibendum, the Michelin man. He was originally made of bicycle tires. Now aren't you glad to know that? The name comes from the Latin phrase, "nunc est bibendum," (time to drink now) thus tying in to our breakfast theme. Roll Eyes

When someone steals the literature carried by Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons, are they distracted? I'm surprised that Cole Porter wasn't one or the other. After all, colporteur means bible peddler. Roll Eyes

An Indian bey had ruled over his caste-ridden province for many years. One day he was greeting ambassadors to India and one diplomat said, "Sahib, I hope I'm not being impertinent but you don't look like an Asian Indian. You look more like a North American Indian."
"Yes, that is very true," he said. "I'm actually a Narragansett bey."
Local humor.

Terrible story in the local paper: A young lady waiting at the curb to cross the street was hit in the face by the buttock of a young man who thrust them out of a passing car window. She tried to have him arrested for assault but the police wouldn't intervene, saying she was only moonstruck.

The funny thing is i threw up yesterday from a upset stomach but while doing so I felt fine. So I guess I was just ill-at-ease.

Given that you were so diseased and ill-at-ease it must have been quite uneasy for you to stand-at-ease and even more uneasy for you to stand at attention.

The incident at the Sikh Temmple made me wonder, if one lost his head covering, would he be disturbed?

It's a hot day and the weatherman told everyone to "stay hydrated." I don't like that phrase so I'll just get liquified.

See how many get that reference.

It was Robby, the first robot in a movie. IIRC, it came out about 1958, and was pretty scary when the thought monster showed up.

As I was reading your great posts and pondering this game, I thought of "discovered." "Uncover" males sense to me, but how does "dis"-"covered" translate?

In googling various replies to the question 'difference between un- & dis-', it seems 'un' has been around much longer & means 'not'. 'dis' came via Latin in the Middle English period & is related to 'bis' (two), suggesting a separation, though the distinction has been blurred over time.

Hard to get much from that, right?

The other day I heard some bloke had been disbarred!

I couldn't work out if he had been:
  • Let free (bars removed)
  • Let back in (bar on entry removed)
  • Or if he'd simply lost his erection?

I think they said he might have been a lawyer.

If a witch hollers a curse at you, is that a hexclamation?

A thought: How long is a curse? A hexameter.

Another thought: A device for measuring genital length? A Petermeter.

Of course it is, and when she tells you what it all means that's the hexplanation.

And when she oversells the dangers that may befall you as a result of her curse, that's hexaggeration.
