Boudreaux was out in da field talkin' wit his frien' Thibodeaux.
 Thibodeaux said, "Boudreaux, you see dat ole barn out dere?
 Well man, its completely infestered wit' rats.
 I tried everything I know an' can't get rid of dem."

Boudreaux say, "Thibodeaux, I know zactly how to get rid of dem rats.
 You gotta get you one of dem bull constriptors."

Thibodeaux say, "What's a bull constriptor?"

Boudreaux explains, 
"Man, dats one of dem big ole snakes and he loves to eat rats 
and swallers dem whole, all at once."

Well, da nex' day Thibodeaux went down to Klibert's reptile farm
 and bought him da biggest bull constriptor dat dey got.
 He brought dat snake to da barn an let him loose right
 in da middle and just sat der and watched. 
 Well, Thibodeaux was watchin' for a long time,
 I mean long, an dere wasn't nuttin' happenin'. 
Dat big ole snake jus curled up hiself in da middle
 of dat barn and slept all day. 
 He didn't even move and dem rats jus run all around.

Thibodeaux got real frustrated 
and he called up Boudreaux on da phone,
 "Boudreaux, man dat's some bad advice bout dat snake.
 Dem rats play all day long."

Boudreaux say, "Man, Thibodeaux, I know just what to do.
 Give dat snake some Viagra."

Thibodeaux say, "What! Viagra!?!
 What's dat gonna do?"

Boudreaux say,
 "I was just listening to da radio and de man 
say dat Viagra is da best t'ing to use for a reptile dysfunction."

Brian Cox visits the world's biggest vacuum chamber

What happens when you drop feathers and a bowling ball
 at the same time inside a vacuum?



The rain was pouring and there
 was a big puddle in front of the pub.
A ragged old man was standing there
 with a rod and hanging a string into the puddle.
A tipsy- looking, curious gentleman came over 
to him and asked what he was doing.
'Fishing,' the old man said simply.

'Poor old fool,' the gentleman thought
 and he invited the ragged old man
 to a drink in the pub.

As he felt he should start some conversation
while they were sipping their whisky,
 the gentleman asked,
'And how many have you caught?'
'You're the eighth,' the old man answered..
Don’t under estimate the elderly!!


Some amusing Gif''s


Hilarious kid completely owns WGN`s
 Friday Forecaster segment


Judy, Bernice and Bernice's young son 
were having lunch at the food court in the mall one day.
 So how did you and your husband meet? Judy asked.
 "I was on a trip to Egypt," Bernice explained,
 "and that's where I met Steve. 
Suprisingly, he didn't live too far from me.
 We instantly fell in love and spent the rest of the trip together.
 Coincidentaly, we were both booked on the same flight back
. It was destiny!
 We were married only a few months later!"
 Bernice then lowered her voice to a whisper.
 "I was a pregnant bride!" she confessed.
 "Really?" Judy asked.
 "Yes," Bernice whispered.
 "During one of the tours, he took me by the hand
 and let me to a dark corner of the pyramid
 we were in where no one could see us!" 
"And then what?" Judy asked.
 Bernice answered, 
"He made me a mummy!"


Did you know???


Two Trailer Loading Fails



Most Magnificent Trees In The World

How do I love thee, tree?
 Let me count the ways;
 you change carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe,
 you sequester carbon, 
and you provide shelter for countless critters.
 There are many reasons for which we should all be tree
Granted, not all of these amazing beautiful trees 
are trees (the Wisteria is a vine, 
 but we’ll give them a pass because they are amazing,
 huge and beautiful

 This huge 125-year-old rhododendron is technically not a tree
 – most are considered to be shrubs.

At 1,990 square meters (about half an acre),
 this huge wisteria is the largest of its kind in Japan

These trees on Slope Point, the southern tip of New Zealand,
 grow at an angle because they’re constantly
 buffeted by extreme antarctic winds

Rainbow Eucalyptus In Kauai, Hawaii

The rainbow eucalyptus, which grows throughout the South Pacific,
 is both useful and beautiful.
 It is prized for both the colorful patches
 left by its shedding bark and for its pulpwood,
 which is used to make paper.

 These baobabs in Madagascar are excellent 
at storing water in their thick trunks to use during droughts

thanks Kitty L

Odds and Ends. So very true.

Take the air out of the mix and they both fall at the same rate. That was amazing.

Loved the gifs.

That little kid doing the weather was funny. Very funny. Way too shy though.

The facts were amazing and the sad one was the baby elephant that was rejected by his mother. How sad.

Those two trailer loading fails made me cringe.

Loved all the trees around the world.

I'm just glad I wasn't on that plane that took off that way. I would have been scared to pieces.

Loved all the signs. Especially the one about the husband winning an argument.

The topless fails. Bwahahahahaha and ouch.

Another fine week Phil.

Have a fabulous day. :)
