Miscellaneous Rumbles

Chuckles for Thursday…….great responses!


If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility...

Q: 'Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?'

A: 'No, sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'

Q: 'Officer, who provided this description?'

A: 'The officer who responded to the scene.'

Q: 'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?'

A: 'Yes, sir. With my life.'

Q: 'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?'

A: 'Yes sir, we do!'

Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room?'

A: 'Yes, sir, I do.'

Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker?'

A: 'Yes, sir.'

Q: 'Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?'

A: 'You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’

The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.


Dana Perino (FOX News) describing an interview she recently had with a Navy SEAL. After discussing all the countries that he had been sent to, she asked if they had to learn several languages?

"Oh, no ma'am. We don't go there to talk."


Conversation overheard on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai .
Iranian Air Defense Site : 'Unknown aircraft, you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'

Aircraft : 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'

Air Defense Site : 'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace, we will launch interceptor aircraft!'

Aircraft : 'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 Fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'

Air Defense Site : (... Total silence)


The guys at the golf course asked me to name an actress I would like to be stuck in an elevator with. I told them the one who knows how to fix elevators. ...I'm old, I'm tired, and I have to pee a lot.


Now those were funny! Thanks for the late afternoon humor!

I served a number of years in the 18th Airborne Corp (Ft Bragg NC), we were direct support for the 82nd Airborne Division. The 82nd had a slogan that could be found on tee shirts and hats (sold in their PX), that I found very succinct.

"We are the 82nd Airborne, we visit exotic countries, meet interesting people, and kill them"


Another Marine Corps slogan that I recall, was a take-off on an old FedEx motto:

When it absolutely, positively has to be destroyed by morning!


I think of Winwood more as a keyboardist, actually.


Due to the Polar blast, Chicago's performance of Hamilton was cancelled.

Once again, Brrr kills Hamilton.
