ESPN SportsCenter's Not Top Ten - WORST OF 2013


Prince Stone had an enormous moth collection.
 He had large moths, small moths-moths of all kinds.
 When King Stone decided to retire and pass his crown to the prince, 
he told the boy he must first dispose of the moth collection
 and find another hobby.
“Why is that, father?”
 inquired the prince.
“Because”, replied the old man,
 “A ruling Stone gathers no moths!”

I was sitting next to a priest in a pub in Boston 
having Irish bean soup and raving about how great it tasted.
Eventually he offered that
 “the Irish have a strict rule that this soup have
 no more than 239 beans per serving.’
I asked,  ”Why the strict rule?”
And in his finest Irish brogue he explained,
 “If we added just one more bean it would be too farty.”

More than 75 Santas and Mrs. Clauses hit the slopes
 at Whistler-Blackcomb Saturday for the resort's annual 
"Dress Like Santa Day." 
Those in costume got a free lift ticket and line priveleges.
 The event celebrated the grand opening 
of the new Harmony 6 Express chairlift.

 George and Aggie lived on a cove on Lake Manitoba.
 It was early winter and the lower portion of the cove had frozen over. 
George asked Aggie if she would walk across the frozen part
 of the cove to the general store 
and get him some smokes and beer.
                                                She asked him for some money,
                                              but he told her,
                                        "Nah, just put it on our tab
                                          Old man Stacey won't mind."

                                                So Aggie walked across the ice,
                                                got the smokes and beer 
                                             at the store and then walked back                                          home across the cove.
                                         When she got home with the                                              items she said,
                                        "George, you always tell me not to run                                         up the tab at Stacey's store. 
                           Why didn't you just give me some money?"

                        George replied,
                     "Well, Aggie, girl,
                                I didn't want to send you out there with cash                                when I wasn't sure how thick the ice was!"

Odds and Ends

A Husband lies dying, his wife is by his bedside..
He says in a weak voice
 “there is something I must confess”.
“Shhhh” said the wife, 
“ there is nothing to confess.
Everything is all right. 
“No” the husband replied “
 I must die in peace.
I had sex with your sister, your best friend,
 her best friend and your best friends mum!”
“I know,” she whispered,
 “That's why I poisoned you.
Now close your eyes”.

Lily the dog was my favorite. What a little go getter. The rickety bridge game me the willies. And that spider was huge.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
