TCM Remembers 2014


A major soft drink manufacturer decided that providing
 choices in the container size in the six-packs
 of its beverages might help move the product off the shelves.
    The unique selling idea was to have several different 
container sizes in the very same six-pack. 
 One of the most successful packages comprised
 two 250 ml bottles, two 500 ml bottles,
 and two 1000 ml bottles.
    To the bottler's surprise, after purchasing the beverage,
 most people chose to drink from the 
1000 ml container first.
    Post-marketing research showed why, 
it was the liter of the pack.


Grandma's new iphone

Grandma isn’t too excited about her new iPhone 
that she received for Christmas as she realizes
 she doesn’t need it and she’s “not equipped to handle this”.
 This is a special kind of iPhone that just about anyone will enjoy
 including Grandma as she is pleasantly surprised
 by how easy it is to operate.

One day Paddy, an Irishman, goes into a chemist shop 
- reaches into his pocket and
Takes out a small Irish whiskey bottle and a teaspoon.
He pours some whiskey onto the teaspoon
 and offers it to the chemist.
"Could you taste this for me, please?"
The chemist takes the teaspoon, puts it in his mouth,
 swills the liquid
Around and swallows it.
"Does that taste sweet to you?" says Paddy.
"No, not at all," says the chemist.
"Oh that's a relief," says Paddy.

"The doctor told me to come here
 and get my urine tested for sugar."

New Year Optimism. Excellent.

I added all those places to my bucket list. Awesome.

I'll never look at Tom Hanks the same again.

Peacock Spider Dances to YMCA. Bwahahahahahahaha and creepy too.

One last look at 2014. Yikes.

We lost a lot of great folks in 2014. Time marches on.

TCM Remembers 2014. Very well done.

Loved that chocolate phone. Perfect.

I'm ashamed. I didn't get the parking space right.

Stupidity awards. All of them need a sign. Yes they do.

Loved the lady getting gas. She's a slow learner and a blonde. Bwahahahahahahaha.

Some people shouldn't be allow to procreate. Ever.

Winter Car Bowling. Now you know why I refuse to live in snow country.

Ice Skating for Cars. They would have been safer staying in the car. Yikes.

Poor dog.

All those folks with the cameras on their heads? That's where we are now.

That old couple can dance. Wow. He's sure able to move unlike most of us old folks.

That Kayak guy is an idiot.

I don't think I'll fly into that airport in Iceland. That pilot nailed it though. Very well done.

These 10 Unsolved Mysteries. Wow, I had no idea.

Hadn't heard about the dust devil in Pasadena. That was something.

Loved the signs. Some of them made me laugh out loud.

Loved the soccer spoof. Too funny. Poor Scott Sterling.

I plan on making 2015 a great year.

Another fun posting. Thanks

Have a fabulous weekend Phil. ☺
