    Inspired to start this thread when my boss (fat white 40's guy) showed up this AM in a purple Vikings Randy Moss jersey...the "8" was so stretched out over his gut, it looked more like an infinity symbol...LOL!

    Not a problem...I'm already home and he showed up 2 hours late with a hangover and a fight brewing with his girlfriend. He has to stay til midnight! LOL

    OK, let's try this again:

    I always LOL when...I imagine Cesc Fabergas teaching a (sic) English grammar class!

    Is that a good enough example to inspire all Odds&Ends-ers to share what tickles their funny bones?

    Working Labor Day? Do you work in a Burger King? (Turnabout is fair play -- you laugh at your boss, we laugh at you).

    I always LOL when I see any adult wearing a $50 jersey of their sports hero. I'd laugh even harder if I was collecting the money.

    Make the OP feel better about himself, and working on Labor Day?? Idk.

    I had a good laugh today as I spent the morning leisurely picking apples with my family at one of those U-pick orchards. Thought of a marketing slogan for the farm while waiting for my baskets:

    Jonamac Orchard is... Pick-ass!

    In Orlando, we will have 56 million visit our city in 2012...Labor Day is a holiday that attracts in-state visitors for the long weekend. When you work in tourism, you look forward to holiday shifts if you are commission-based, as I am. I LOL at 9to5'ers clinging to their precious 10 days a year of paid off-days. I really LOL when I'm home with a chilled adult beverage listening to raindrops on the roof while 9to5ers are grinding through rush hour commutes with all the other lemmings.

    As to the point of the thread, it's supposed to be a way to share humurous or ironic moments we each encounter.

    I always LOL when my dawg chases lizards...his tail wags like a windshield wiper but he has yet caught one. Speaking of windshield wipers, he hasn't caught one of those either despite his best effort to catch it thru the glass!

    The visual I'm imagining of you "boweling" on the lanes makes me ROFL! Did you mount the toilet on casters and "roll" your way to the 278??? Nice score BTW! When was your 8-count? I got to the 10th frame perfect five times before I got my one and only 300! When I shot a 769 series (personal best) I had a ringing 8-pin in Game 2 and a stone 9-pin in Game 3 that cost me an 800 series!

    I had front 9 then 9 spare 9 for the 78. Other guy went front 8 9 spare struck out for 279. I could only laugh like Raonic last night.

    But that 278 is my highest game, and gives me hope I can one day throw a 300.

    Those 9 pins are the worst. You throw a great shot and it almost bites too hard and complety misses the 9

    If you bowl enough, you'll get there! Anyone that can get the front nine is good enough to finish it with skill and the "residue of hard work"...i.e. lady luck. My last strike on my 300 was yanked BAD but I was so pumped I threw it 2 or 3 MPH faster...the result was a clean Brooklyn with all ten flying like a pocket hit. The first eleven? Nailed!

    Lucky me...I had just whizzed b4 reading your poast!

    Your type of accident is much easier to handle than a "shart". Thankfully, I gave up jalapeƱos years ago!

    Right back at you, LiverLips!

    I also LOL at all references to "Arrested Development", an apt subtitle to my autobiography.

    I dont understand what is funny about about an Grammy award winning hip hop group. I like R. Wendel as much as the next guy, but dont see humor in it.

    Please explain


    Also wasnt Jerky Boys those guys that would prank call people all the time? Do poeple still do this kind of stuff? There was a guy a few years back that woudl prank call into QVC and say stuff. One guy even got through on fox news and and told julie banderas he liked looking at her chest (he didt say it quite as nice). They used to be on Kidd Chris all the time in philly. I think they called themselves the cream team or somethign liek that. I would check but dont want to google cream team at work.

    ^^^Think TV series, not hip hop (although the band came first and should have copywright infringement issues). The family in the series is more dysfunctional than my own real blood...that fact and the phrase itself make me LOL!

    As to the Jerky Boys, they were a short-lived craze in the mid-90's, big enough to score a feature film deal. Their Warhol moments have come and gone but the thought of all the JB-reference-laden convos I use to have with co-workers at the time will draw a slightly muted chuckle from me every now and then. I don't follow current cranksters but they would probably pale in comparison to some of the JB stunts.

    I always LOL when police officers ***k up...a local cop posted on her Facebook page..."Where are Lee Harvey Oswald and John Wilkes Booth when you need them?" two days before an Obama rally in the area! Why did she leave out Czolgosz and Guiteau?

    I'm still LOLing @ Craig Ferguson all these five plus years I've watched him on The Late Late Show! "It's a great day for America" anytime he's on the air. BTW, Heather Graham was his guest last night...very nice in the little black dress and also a bit deep with a tout for Dostoyevsky and yoga!

    I always LOL @ Central Florida weathercasters! What other job can you maintain with a 90% fail ratio? Today's "scattered showers" is now a blanket of rain with imbedded thunderstorms!

    I thought overnight lines only happened in Commie countries.

    Yeah, can't people wait a few days and walk in and buy the iPhone, or will it get sold out ? Crazy, I have an ancient phone without camera etc, and am satisfied with it.

    I always LOL whenever Apple have their annual releases. They always release something with last year's technologies, while skimming out on today's standards.

    iPhone 4: New phone! But no 4G LTE.
    iPhone 5: New phone! We'll finally give you 4G LTE, but you'll have to wait for the next release for NFC.

    I'm LOLing now...one segment of NBC News Tonight featured a report on the scary high-blood-pressure crisis in America originating in the high-salt diets of children. What commercial is aired during their break? A spot for a Red Robin burger with "bottomless" French fries for $6.99!

    I'm LOLing now...one of my dogs is begging for some ball throwing and attention! When I came home yesterday, he was puky and lethargic...wouldn't even eat a treat of chicken breast. What a relief!
