Make you laugh / Re: Things that made you laugh today

Have you come across Anne Cleeves yet? She has similarly raised the death rates in Northumberland (Vera) Shetland (Shetland - Jimmy Perez) and Devon (Two Rivers - Matthew Venn)
We are very well acquainted with Vera (who calls everyone "Pet") and Shetland.  My husband much prefers Shetland to Vera, but sadly, the local public television station seems to prefer Vera.  We've never seen Devon, so thank you for that, since it presents an alternative that we'll probably enjoy.  Between falling asleep in the middle of the shows and not seeing them for a sustained interval, we end up watching the same episodes repeatedly and eventually, since we know the outcome, it's not as fun, so a new detective series will be very welcome.

So as to return to the spirit of the thread, I give you this:

Quote
An airplane was about to crash. There were four passengers on board, but only three parachutes.

The first passenger said, 'I am Steph Curry, the best NBA basketball player. The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can't afford to die.' So he took the first pack and left the plane.

The second passenger, Donald Trump, said, 'I am the newly-elected US President, and I am the smartest president in American history, so my people don't want me to die.' He took the second pack and jumped out of the plane.

The third passenger, the Pope, said to the fourth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolboy, 'My son, I am old and don't have many years left, you have more years ahead so I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute.'

The little boy said, 'That's okay, Your Holiness, there's a parachute left for you. America 's smartest president took my schoolbag...'

I had to laugh at the joke about how many murders Mark is watching since we thrive on detective shows.  The whole Inspector Morse/Lewis series must have raised the annual murder rate of Oxford to historic levels!

Joke heard this morning.

What do you call a rooster staring at a pile of lettuce?

A:  a chicken sees a salad.  (This should be read in a Boston accent.)

It certainly works in my Vinny Jones accent too.

That sounds like a long hallway.  Sorry about the lack of outside access.  Will probably roast vegs for dinner tonight.  Alternative is warmed up Indian food.  For some reason, I couldn't sleep last night, and when I say "couldn't sleep," I mean tried to sleep until around 7 a.m. and then gave up.  Now I'm stupid.  Oh well.  I'll try to go pull some weeds or something that doesn't require a good deal of brain power.

I do not. I live at the end of a five-and-a-half-minute hallway.
The "secondary exit" required by California are the windows and would likely be an unpleasant experience.

Tonight was chopped cheese, but it was mom's turn. It was kind of funny, she made a plate of it. She does not like taking advice or critique on cooking, for years an easy way to start a fight was simply mentioning a roux.

Specifically, a chopped cheese is nothing fancy. It's chopped up meat, chopped up cheese, shredded lettuce, mayonaise and ketchup, on a roll.

Mom somehow made something of a salad of it. Not sure how. My contribution was sandwich oil, considering the vegetation.

We both enjoyed it, which is a happy thing.

We've got a new ten-inch stainless skillet, which will make dinner much easier. The frying pan she loves has a dip, which means cooking meat in it was not much fun. The new pan is a bless'ed champ.

The only downside is now I need to buy a bigger lid. I suppose that is a problem TO HAVE. Not sure how to translate that line, imagine it in a new jersey accent. "A problem TO HAVE"

So it's a nice one.

I pulled a couple small servings of tomato pasta sauce from the freezer that I made last fall from my homegrown tomatoes.  It makes for an easy spaghetti dinner.  The number is dwindling, though.  I guess it's time to plant more tomatoes.

8ully, do you have a small balcony where you could plant any vegetables?
