Fun stuff

Here's yet another website for things to waste your time with. It's Stupid Internet Tricks, which is run by Brad Whittington, who runs other fun blogs as you'll see if you go to his main website.

Joke du jour

Thanks again to David Darnell for the joke du jour:

A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring. The older gent suggested the young one accompany him on his rounds so the community could become used to a new doctor.

At the first house a woman complained, "I've been a little sick to my stomach." The older doctor said, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?"

As they left the younger man said, "You didn't even examine that woman. How'd you come to your diagnosis so quickly?"

"I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the trash. That was what was probably making her sick."

"Huh," the younger doctor said, "Pretty sneaky. I think I'll try that at the next house."

Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with an elderly woman. She complained that she just didn't have the energy she once did. "I'm feeling terribly run down lately."

"You've probably been doing too much work for the church," the younger doctor told her. "Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps."

As they left, the elder doc said, "Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, but how did you arrive at it?"

"Well, just like you at the last house, I dropped my stethoscope. When I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the preacher under the bed."

Awwww, cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!

I've been a fan of Cute Overload for and the Daily Squee for pictures of adorable animals (and occasionally human babies).

But Ealasaid pointed something out to me that I have to add to the list: F-Yeah, Baby Animals!, which is pretty cute, too. It's even sorted by type of animal for that perfect cuteness fix.

Joke du jour

Bubba is driving down a back road in Alabama. A sign in front of a restaurant reads:
HAPPY HOUR SPECIAL ==> Lobster Tail and Beer
"Lord-a mercy!" he says to himself, "Them's my three favorites!"
