Joe and Joan were sitting down to their usual morning cup of coffee listening to the weather report on the radio. "There will be 3 to 5 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared," the weather report said.
"You must park your cars on the odd numbered side of the streets."
Joe said, "Jeez, okay," and got up from his coffee.
The next day they were sitting down with their morning cups of coffee. The weather forecast was, "There will be 2 to 4 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared.
You must park your cars on the even numbered side of the streets." Again Joe replied, "Jeez, okay," and got up from his coffee.
Two days later, again they're sitting down with their cups of coffee and the weather forecast said, "There will be 6 to 8 inches of snow today, and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the..." and the power went out and Joe didn't get the rest of the instructions.
He turned to Joan, "Jeez, what am I going to do now, Joan?"
Joan replied, "Aw, Joe, just leave the car in the darned garage today."

I beat it earlier with garbage can but, believe it or not it guessed laser printer but continued on and after two or three more questions got garbage can. How do you go from laser printer to garbage can in a couple of questions? :roll:

Don, that joke wasn't even remotely funny. And I'm a tad bid drunk. Shame on ewe. I'm taking a second out before we watch the lunar eclipse...
My wife thinks the joke was really lame...

Couldnt we just create a "Don Liu" forum and just let post to it? Make him a bartender for that forum as well
And then sit back and let it take up more disk space than the rest of the big moose saloon
