More Florida fun

'Bra Bandit' strikes again in southwest Florida
From Associated Press
October 06, 2008 8:24 PM EDT
BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. - There's a bra bandit on the loose in southwest Florida. The Lee County Sheriff's Office was searching for an individual they say stole 160 bras valued at nearly $6,000 on Thursday from a Victoria Secret store, the latest in a string of bra burglaries in the area.

Since February, authorities say 452 bras valued at nearly $19,000 have been stolen from two of the chain's southwest Florida locations. Six different bra thefts at the stores have been reported during that time.

Investigators said a female customer walked into the store Thursday and immediately went to a four-drawer cabinet with new bras of the PINK brand name. The store manager told deputies the woman waited until employees were busy helping customers and then thrust the bras into a bag and exited the store.

So the bras were lifted and separated from the store's inventory?

Just look at Poland (wink, wink: one piece of real squid porn in here and it gets called octopus porn).

Toward the end of Sunday service, the Minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies?"


80% held up their hands.


The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one small elderly lady.


"Miss Joyce, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"


"I don't have any", she replied, smiling sweetly.


"Miss Joyce, that is very unusual. How old are you?"


"Ninety-eight", she replied.


"Oh, Miss Joyce, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?"


The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, faced the congregation, and said: "I outlived the bitches."

A man wakes up in the hospital, bandaged from head to foot. The doctor comes
in and says, 'Ah, I see you've regained consciousness. Now, you probably
won't remember, but you were in a pile-up on the freeway. You're going to be
okay, you'll walk again and everything, but..... something happened. I'm
trying to break this gently, but the fact is, your penis was chopped off in
the wreck and we were unable to find it.'

The man groans, but the doctor goes on, 'You've got $9000 in insurance
compensation coming and we have the technology now to build you a new penis
that will work as well as your old one did - better in fact! But the thing
is, it doesn't come cheap. It's $1000 an inch.'

The man perks up at this.

'So,' the doctor says, 'it's for you to decide how many inches you want. But
it's something you'd better discuss with your wife. I mean, if you had a
five inch one before, and you decide to go for a nine incher, she might be a
bit put out. But if you had a nine inch one before, and you decide only to
invest in a five incher this time, she might be disappointed. So it's
important that she plays a role in helping you make the decision.'

The man agrees to talk with his wife.

The doctor comes back the next day.'So,' says the doctor, 'have you spoken
with your wife?'

'I have,' says the man.

'And has she helped you in making the decision?'

'Yes, she has,' says the man.

'And what is it?' asks the doctor.

'We're getting new countertops.'

A Husband and wife are shopping in their local Wal-Mart.

The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.

'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.

'They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans,' he replies.

'Put them back, we can't afford them,'

demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a

$20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

'What do you think you're doing?' asks the husband.

'Its my face cream. It makes me look

beautiful,' replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of

Budweiser and it's half the price.'

A little boy walks into his parents' room to see his mom on top of his
dad bouncing up and down. The mom sees her son and quickly dismounts,
worried about what her son has seen. She dresses quickly and goes to
find him.

The son sees his mom and asks, 'What were you and Dad doing?'

The mother replies, 'Well, you know your dad has a big tummy and
sometimes I have to get on top of it and help flatten it.'

'Your wasting your time,' said the boy.

'Why is that?' the mom asked puzzled.

'Well when you go shopping the lady next door comes over and gets on her
knees and blows it right back up.'

When I lived in Camp Verde, AZ, I bought a Jeep Cherokee (during the AMC-Jeep-Renault years). Fucker had a Renault engine that couldn't handle hot weather or dust, just perfect for life in the desert. Of course the average small-town mechanic would take one look under the hood and immediately tell me he couldn't help me, no matter what was wrong. Even the dealer had to order parts from France. For my Jeep.
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Then it's just fun.

If that were my car (and yes, Six, that's correct English),
my dealer would have simply laughed at me.

I drive a 1995 4-door sedan of an American provenance.

Less than 80k miles on it.

While I've found that it doesn't function elsewhere,
it's a great desert car.

But I should've bought it in a more intelligent color.

Reading that is making me tense.

Pick your battles:

"If that were my car, my dealer would simply laugh at me."
"If that had been my car, my dealer would simply have laughed at me."

The second requires a pluperfect subjunctive. You still get a :wub: from me for trying to use the subjunctive mood for the contrary-to-possibility protasis.

Of course the average small-town mechanic would take one look under the hood and immediately tell me he couldn't help me, no matter what was wrong. Even the dealer had to order parts from France. For my Jeep.


My parents had a Renault Alliance when I was a kid. My grandparents at the same time bought a Jeep Cherokee complete with the fake wood paneling on the side. Both of them had the transmission go out at 50K miles.

I like French cheese, French women, French food, almost French everything, but they can't build a car to save their fucking lives. You don't hear of anyone singing the wonders of "French Engineering".

Why don't the Swiss build cars? You'd think they would last a million miles and not suck...
Oh wait, they do build cars, and they all look like cartoons:

I think this thing is French.

I think there's some crappy French engineering by some guy named "Egrot" in places like Combier, Pontarlier. Maybe some other places too. I think some Egrot equipment was used to make a really shitty absinthe called L'Artisanale, but I might be wrong.

You're right, Renault doesn't seem to make very good cars. Maybe they should go back to their original design. For it's day it was pretty good.

Actually, the French are wicked engineers. It's not when they engineer things but when they build things in great numbers that sometimes things go wrong (though I must say recent Renault cars sold in EuroFuckyLand are pretty decent if butt ugly - it's just whatever they try to kludge together to cater for American tastes that seems to fall apart at the seams).

Don't forget this car was engineered by the French:

I'd like to have one of those . The old Renault was a real performer too, remember the commercial with the star stunt driver ? He put that little Renault through the paces . The French made better watches than the Swiss , but so did the Americans , we (Americans ) also made the bench mark and set the standard for top quality watchmaker (instrument) lathes , the Swiss couldn't build (or design ) a decent lathe if their life depended on it . 100 years ago France had the best jewelers and case makers .

Yeah, the two that I've seen on the streets here that still run are amazing at how they drag their back ends on the ground because the hydraulic suspension has failed. I also think the bubble brake is amazing, because it's the perfect example of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it till it is". I like how they look though, and you can't fault them for being ambitious. There's also a Citroen 2CV down the street from me that has the headlight held on by duct tape and aluminum foil. When the driver got in it the other day the door came partly off the hinge. When he finally got it closed it sounded like someone stepped on a tin can. When he started it it sounded like a riding lawnmower.

As for Egrot, I'll correct myself. The French are great at engineering anything that has to do with consumable items like liquor, wine or cheese. And maybe older Renaults are OK, I don't know, but I was never aware of any of them being described as reliable. The one we had was even worse than most American cars.

And Airbus jets are great.

OK, so generalization got me into trouble, again. Got you people talking about it though, didn't it?

Ah, Le Car, or in french, the Renault sank (I guess they don't float). Rented one of those for a couple of weeks once. You're right, it was fun to drive, and park. It was, at the time, just starting to replace the mini Cooper as the bicycle of Paris.

After 40 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening, when the wife felt her husband begin to touch her in ways he hadn't in quite some time.
It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back. He then slid his hand across her shoulders and neck, slowly worked it down over one breast, then the other, stopping just over her lower stomach.

He then proceeded to place his hand on her left inner arm, caressed past the side of her breast again, working down her side, passed gently over and then in between her buttock and down her leg to her calf.
Then, he proceeded up her inner thigh, stopping just at the uppermost portion of her leg. He continued in the same manner on her right side, then suddenly stopped, rolled over and became silent.
As she had become quite aroused by this caressing, she asked in a loving voice, 'That was wonderful. Why did you stop?'
'I found the remote.'

I'm in fine company in that remark, so I don't mind.

I actually thought about "le déclic" after fighting with five "fine" remotes (DVB-T TV tuner, HD recorder, A/V receiver, beamer and subwoofer) to get something on screen (with the correct aspect ratio) and on the audio boxes.

Makes you long for that remote close to the platonic ideal that's found in "Le déclic": one small box, one large round button (and no #@$%#$% modifier keys), no text.

And, just to make it really ideally simple, possibly no functionality at all.

Sigh...

A Mormon was seated next to an Irishman on a flight from London .

After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken.

The Irishman asked for a whiskey, which was promptly brought and
placed before him.

The flight attendant then asked the Mormon if he would like a drink.

He replied in disgust, "I'd rather be savagely raped by a dozen whores than let liquor touch my lips.."

The Irishman then handed his drink back to the attendant and said,
