Friday Yuk

By Bob in Calgary ·
Where is every one, I come in expecting to read the friday Yuk. Oh well Here goes.

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world. For his first chapter he decided to write about American churches. So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would work his way across the country from South to North. On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read $10,000.00 per call. The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000.00 one could talk to God. The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and asked a nearby nun what its purpose was? She told him that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000.00 he could talk to God.

"O.K. , thanks" said the American.

He then traveled to Indianapolis, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston New-York., N. Dakota, and Montana In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same $10,000.00 per call sign under it. Upon leaving Montana, the American saw a sign for CANADA and decided to see if Canadians had the same golden telephone. He arrived in Calgary Alberta and again there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read 25 cents per call. The American was surprised and intrigued so he asked the priest about the sign, "Father, I've traveled all over America and I've seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in every state the price was $10,000.00 per call.
Why is it so cheap here.?"

The priest smiled and answered: "You're in Canada now son, it's a local call."

The Bobbit treatment?

That is uncalled for. It is one thing to give someone a new hair part, it is entirely a different better when you start messing with the guys down there!

Somethings just shouldn't even be joked about!

PostPosted: Fri Sep 27, 2002 2:04 am Post subject: A mousey tail- story of a vancouver mouse. Add User to Ignore List Reply with quote
--read this with the sound of a tiny little voice squeaky and high childlike voice--

Hi. I'm a Vancouver mouse and i live in this like 4 story building with all my friends and family and strangers and cousins 100 times removed, ohh and a few of you human creatures.

The other day I had an experience I just wanted to share. And since the human that uses this contraption is sleeping at the moment decided to come tell you my tail.

It all started when i went onto the third floor. That's where the places are that have food. I was sneaking around and hoping to find just a small piece of cracker, bread heck even some candy would be good. I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere because I was under this metal thing. I think you humans call it a Filing cabnite. Now my family rules this building so I don't have a problem with where i go.. well except for the glue traps but i stay away from them. ANYWAY..

So i was uinder this metal thing and the human must have heard me because suddenly the metal moved and caught my tiny little head between two peices of Metal. BANG it went and my head hurt. BANG BANG and my head hurt again. It did this several times.. then stopped holding my head in place. Then BANG BANG BANG boy was my head hurting and spinning. Now I sat there trying to come out of it. when all of a sudden the metal moved.

I don't know about other mice but I decided that was not good so I ran, around the wall and corner to hide in the yards of spagetti that buzzz. i think you call them electrical cords. anyway there i was. thought i was safe when my hidey hole MOVED!!!!! Dang the desk ? was on wheels and moved away so I hid more, then i scurried around to where two metal walls were close together.

i thought i was safe. i hid there for a couple minutes when the human, female i think though she ain't as pretty as my wife. She ain't got no wiskers or pointy nose or nothing.. anyway she looked at me.. well i was hiding so I looked right back She couldn't see me anyway. right? Suddenly the walls closed in around me. Holding me tightly as they moved and dragged me forward. JEEZE you humans have weird things.

it dragged me at least 5 mousey miles themn lifted straight into the AIR! Carrying me by my body, but then i began to slip and it was holding me by the neck I hung in the air for at least 20 mousey miles when suddenly I fell from those metal airborne walls down a cliff!! Those cliffs were at least 10 mousey miles deep. Boom i fell and lay there dazed stunned and confused. Spread eagled as I tried to figure out what was going on.. I heard the human male yell "get me the tongs"

Now i don't know what those are but suddenly these two pieces of metal were squeezing my tummy and I was kicking them away as fast as I could. Then suddenly it grabbed my tail. I couldn't do nothing.. Then I was FLYING!!!! Well FLYING?FALLING cuz I don't got no wings. I fell at least 60 mousey miles and landed on that black rock ouitside.

I must have been knocked unconcious because when i came too it was definately later than before. I stumbled home.. where my family friends, cousins, strangers, and 100 times reoved cousins wondered what happened to me.

I told them and they shuddered. Told me how lucky i was to be super mouse

Problem is I keep telling everyone who wwill listen, so I tell you the same..

DON'T GO ON THE THIRD FLOOR!!!

And that's my tail.. I am never coming back to the third floor again. I may move out of here altogether.. my family might want to follow me.. You humans are bad news..

I'd take a glue trap or snap trap

*Walking away muttering* mousey's don't have wings.. they can't fly.. chase me around the room.. walls closing in.. I STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES

Okay, call me softhearted (HEY YOU! SOFTIE!!!), but I can't bring myself to set traditional traps for the mice. We don't have many around here, but a few, and my way of dealing with it is a humane trap that allows me to set them free in the back pasture. The housemates think I'm crazy, but I figure, I wouldn't want someone doing that to me.

huh, some " humane " traps aren't
the glue strips are supposed to be humane, and non toxic, but you wind up with a glue strip that has mouse parts on it if you aren't right there when the mouse gets stuck. they rip thier skin right off to get away.
( unfortunately, those are the only traps available, so I have to terminate them when they get caught to avoid making them suffer. )

~evil grin ~

made a squeaky toy one night, folded glue strip around mouse and smacked it against table..went "squeek"....but it broke really quickly ( like about 5 seconds ) I think I hit it to hard on table and killed mouse.

Okay, gonna get a little angry here, sorry. And my apologies if this sounds a bit too adamant.

You tried to make a mouse into a sqeaky toy by doing WHAT???

I was raised on a cattle ranch. I know how meat is processed and what the animals go through so we can all go to McDonald's on Friday night. It didn't make me a vegetarian to learn all this, because I know there are alternatives that are far worse to what goes on now in the processing plant.

But I find it difficult to understand anyone who would do something to an animal for amusement. While I was in Spain, I was taken to a bullfight by the sponsors of the festival at Merida, and I had to leave after the first "competition". My hosts were a little upset, but considering the "fight" was nothing more than a game of "let's torture this animal, then kill it and show everyone how brave we are", I was less than impressed, and I knew if I stayed there, I'd only get angrier. ****, the only time I got in a fight in school was when I saw a kid pulling the classic trick of tying firecrackers to a kitten's tail, then laughing when the animal freaked out. It's the only time I've purposely broken someone's jaw in a fight, but that laugh... I swear, I could never forgive that. Yeah, I know, it's a rough world, and people aren't always nice to each other, let alone to the animals out there. But that doesn't stop me when I see someone purposely being cruel to their pets.

And as for the mouse... well, tell me, how would you feel if someone wrapped you in meter-wide duct tape, then slammed you a few times against a brick wall? Probably not too good, right? So consider that the next time you think about making a toy out of a living creature.

Okay, rant over. And my apologies. But this is a sensitive issue to me.

That's a big OW for the mousie, Jaqui. Eeeeech.

On the other hand, one can play a harmless, non-toxic prank on kitty by rolling up a little bit of scotch tape, sticky side out, and sticking it to the bottom of a paw or paws. (Do NOT wrap the CAT in scotch tape, please note, or throw the cat anywhere!) Kitty will do a nice jig until the tape comes off the bottom of her feet.

Do not do this more than once, because the cat will just pick the tape off her feet with her teeth, next time, instead of hopping around madly.

This is the only remotely mean thing i've ever done to my kitty, and she still loves me, Sean. i swear!

Of course, the animal kingdom has had its revenge: two days ago, Nan versus the yellowjacket! i won that one, but not before hopping madly about the street in front of my house and then running up on the porch & stripping off my tee shirt, where the yellowjacket had gotten caught. Strangely, nobody was around to see this! Pity, it would have been funny. icon_redface.gif

Did my cat laugh? Probably. But cats and dogs are nice, and do not laugh out loud.

wrapping the glue strip it was already stuck to around it and hitting it against a solid surface to kill it is more humane than letting it rip itself apart trying to and getting free.

you would rather it was left alone and suffered for hours or days on the glue strip?

5 seconds and dead, seems much more humane than even 1 hour .

I grew up on a pig farm, been knee deep in rotting pig ( died if disease, buried in field and it wasn't a deep enough grave ) learned very young that shortening the suffering is more humane than leaving any animal to suffer. on several occasions where getting injured pet to the vets would have resulted in dead pet before arrival, I had to put them out of thier misery. unfortunately, don't have a small enough caliber gun to shoot the mice with so I hit them to kill them, better than letting them alone, or completely encasing them in the strip and tossing into garbage alive.

OH, it was already stuck to the glue strip and dying. Sorry, misunderstood. Yes, a quick end is preferable at that point.

I'm with you VS much prefer relocation to execution. even spiders, I've spent hours hunting down and carfully trapping a spider to release it outside, rather then squash it as my girlfriend would prefer. I draw the line only at mesqitos, if there was ever a creature which would benfit the world by it's eradication it's the mesquito.

the glue strip it was already stuck to

Well, see, you kinda neglected to mention that part.

I still have issues with the strips themselves, but that's just me. I just find it difficult to accept that we sometimes cavalierly do things to animals we wouldn't dare do to a "fellow" human being, no matter how represensible he/she was acting.

Sorry for coming on so strong about this, but animal cruelty is one of the few things in this world guaranteed to really **** me off bigtime.

My apologies.

sorry I wasn't clear about it already being stuck.

I personally don't like the glue strips, would rather something to keep them alive ( in city so no release options really ) or to kill them outright, not force them to suffer.

Believe me guys we aren't cruel I prefer quick and death or live capture and release, but this building owners just buy the glue strips and people call them HUMANE.. Sheesh.. They have never seen the little things spread eagled on the strip pulling til their skin is ripping off their bodies because you weren't home to dispose of them when they first got stuck on the damned thing. Half the time I don't want to kill them I want to help them.. Problem is once stuck the only way to save it is to tear it off the strip or use chemicals that would kill it anyway.

I have come to think of some of the mice in here as Super intelligent. They have to be. Some just plain skirt the glue traps. Others are bold enough to get on the table and try to steal matchboxes or paper. or FOOD. and stare at you.

The other night I thought it was raining.. Looked out the window and it wasn't heard the noise again (remember i am half asleep at this point) and started searching a shelf by our bed. Heard the nois closer moved some books and found a plastic bag. Grabbed the bag and it MOVED!! I grabbed the bag and yelled for Jaqui (he thought I was having a nightmare. ) the mouse was in the bag. Dang thing packaged himself up quite nicely too..

Then there's the one who sits on the end of our bed one day and stares at me.. *SHEESH* or the one who boldly strolls into the bathroom. Sees me then saunters out. like "oops sorry thought it was empty."

We owned a rat.. I would take a rat over these mice anyday.. *Sigh* at least rats KNOW who's master. They are.


mice know you are good for having food. and great companions and annoyances..

i live in florida. i guess i am lucky, i have no mice or cockroaches. what i do have are lizards. i am not sure how they get in, but, some of them are almost 4 inches long. i try very hard not to scare them...the babies, at least, when i turn on the coffee pot in the a.m. there are usually a couple really small ones on the countertop...and if they get startled, they jump...and sometimes crash to the floor, stunning themselves. now, that can't be good. when it's been raining out, i have them. it seems, when it dries up a bit, they head back outside.

actually, they are cute. and, they do eat bugs. now bufo frogs are another story!!!

also in florida, I've got those lizards too Poppi.
try to shoo them out before my girlfriend sees them, I also have a cat named roxy who occasionaly likes to play with them, they must not be very tasty coz I've never seen her eat one. though I have caught her carying them around in her mouth, its always freeky to see her walking into a room with a lizard tail whipping around between her lips, but she always spits it out unharmed, if only to bat the poor thing around some more before I take pitty on the lizard and put it outside. I don't let the cat out anymore coz (cover your ears poppi) she loves to catch and eat birds.

aww Sheena wasn't that bad, she just did gymnastics around her cage all night ( while I was at work )

and snuggled into the hollow of your neck or at the back of your neck when she wanted company.

and the noise of her jumping up then paw over paw across the top of her cage before dropping onto her house inside wasn't that bad. ~g~


~mumbling~
at least she didn't climb into your mouth while you were talking on the phone like she loved to do with me.

Man walks into a bar with an octopus under his arm.

by Oz_Media In reply to Friday Yuk

Man walks into a bar with an octopus under his arm
He says to the bartender, "This, kind sir, is the world's most talented octopus on the Earth! If my octopus can play your favorite song on the piano over there, will you buy us our drinks?"

Bartender thinks for a minute, 'It must be a scam' so he says "tell you what, if he can play my son's accordion, you have a deal".

He hands the octopus an accordion and the 8 legged wonder plays a vast array of old salty tunes.

AMAZED, the bartender buys them a round and says "I know, wait here, if he can play THIS instrument I'll buy you drinks all night."

He returns with a set of bagpipes. The octopous jumps up and grabs the bagpipes, and tears out of the bar and across the street to a hotel.

The bartender starts laughing and says, "Well he aint THAT talented is he!?"

The man says "Pour me another round, as soon as he finds out he can't f**k 'em, he'll be back here playing Amazing Grace in no time."

Take a piece of paper and cover up the bottom half of the words in a sentence. Try reading the sentence.

Now take the paper and cover the top half, the sentence becomes illegible.

We capture images of words, the tops of the taller letters are more important to reading than the bottom of the letters.
