A Couple o' Funnies

First... My Buddy Ed In Florida sends the following along:

A wife asks her husband, a software engineer, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get six!"

A short time later the husband comes back with six cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, "Why the hell did you buy six cartons of milk?"

He replied, "They had eggs."
That's not as much funny as it is true, coz that's EXACTLY how code-writers think. Go ahead, ask me how I know.

And then there's this, from a recognizable source:

I really should have saved this for the day after tomorrow when someone in the extended fam'bly celebrates her 70th birthday.  Or mebbe I should just e-mail it to her.


  1. Love the joke... why do women not understand the literal interpretation of their instructions?

    1. Who knows why wimmen do ANYTHING?

    2. Not I, sir. Not I. Just call me clueless.

  2. Heh. My brain used to work like that.

  3. My husband was fixing the toilet last weekend (finally gave up after 20 years of flushing). I had to go to the hardware store to buy a new shutoff valve. As I was about to leave he said "Oh, and get some caulk while you're there". I stopped in my tracks, and said What!!?? Then he said "You know the white silicon kind for the bottom of the toilet".

    Well, anyway it sounded pretty perverted...

    1. Heh. As noted previously... you crack me up, Christiane.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
