I know, but explaining a joke always spoils it!

 

Not always. I think it adds an extra layer of funny knowing what the lunch is saying back.

Heard on the internet:

 

Breaking news : Germany is now advising people to stock up on cheese and sausages.

This is called the Wurst Käse scenario...

Disclaimer: It was not me. I love cheese entirely too much to attempt to wash my hands with it. And I don't think I've ever been drunk enough to mistake cheese for soap.

 

I just thought it was a good spot to drop in my favorite Lewis Grizzard quote.

Earlier today I bought a can of Cento white clam sauce. Later today, I noticed this on the side of the can:

I had no idea one actually caught clams. I'm imagining a Discovery Channel series, "The Least Dangerous Catch."

 

Oh, and of course we have to be warned:

Went down the rabbit hole of Joseph's Machines...brilliant...shared with many in isolation.  I wonder if he shares his household with anyone....no room really.  But nonetheless, a good pass time for those unable to go out 🤪

I loved the "pass the salt in times of social distancing" one. Yeah. I don't normally watch these things much but times have changed!

Heard a Dr. on TV saying in this time of Coronavirus staying at home we should focus on inner peace. To achieve this we should always finish things we start and we all could use more calm in our lives. I looked through the house to find things i'd started and hadn't finished, so I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, tha mainder of Valiumun srciptuns, an a box a chocletz. Yu haf no idr how feckin fablus I feel rite now. Sned this to all who need inner piss. An telum u luvum. And two hash yer wands, stafe day avrybobby!!!
