I like those, sodpoodle. Thanks for the chuckles.

You're not fat, you're just easier to see.

I think it's pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of tattoos.

Denny's has a slogan, "If it's your birthday, the meal is on us." If you're in Denny's and it's your birthday, your life sucks!

Any pro-family aphorisms?

I loved Ambrose Bierce's definition of 'aphorism' from The Devil's Dicitonary:

APHORISM

-n.

Predigested wisdom.

The flabby wine-skin of his brain
Yields to some pathologic strain,
And voids from its unstored abysm
The driblet of an aphorism.

- "The Mad Philosopher," 1697

I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number?

If that’s from 1987 it’s my fault. I married a Canadienne.

Not exactly an aphorism but...

The author is obviously politically incorrect and guilty of old think. Certainly if a feminist gaia lover married a tree, there would be only one person in the marriage. And what about the traditional Mormons or Islamic "refugees" with more than one spouse. That would throw the numbers off as well.

The odd number represents that woman who married the “pirate ghost”.

Why do they call it the Department of the Interior when they are in charge of everything outdoors?

I learned something from my wife.

I lived alone for twenty years before I met her and found out
that I had been loading the dishwasher wrong all that time.

If someone got married twice in one year that would result in an odd number of people getting married in a single year.

Point taken regarding the uneven number but the correct grammar would be 4,153,237 people got married last year.

Shouldn’t that have been an even number of people? Or did someone marry himself?
