MacOS Ken Dirty Jokes

April 24, 2008 at 4:42 pm | Posted in Humor (G- and R- rated) | Leave a comment

MacOS Ken recently started playing dirty joke punchlines. Here they are (broadcast yesterday):

1) President Lincoln rubbed his chin and said “I know”
2) Bart says, “I’ve never had $5 before”.
3) Dolly Parton looked at her and said “Neither have I”.
4) No, no.. you guys don’t understand! Chunks is my dog.
5) Sheep is a filthy liar.
6) It’s called The Aristocrats.

The answers to all but the first one are here. Password is the codename for MacOS X 10.5 (all lowercase).

UPDATE – Here are the ones for today (some of them are weak). Use the comments to fill in the rest.

7) I will, but I don’t know if I can keep my mouth open that long.
8 ) Swim for it.
9) The third nun said, “I’m not touching that thing”.
10) An elephant.
11) Wrecked him? It nearly killed him!
12) Hmmmm… usually a Twinkie and a glass of milk.
13) There’s twenty of ’em.
14) I don’t even know her!
15) That’s what she said!

In Remembrance

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey’s end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You’re only sleeping

Don’t say
We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you’ll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

After seeing these three figures, ask yourself who really understands the problems of small-town America. Which of these candidates really understand what it means to try to balance budgets and spend money wisely? Data from CNN.

McCain Money

Obama Money

UPS Industrial Design

I never thought that a UPS/surge protector should look good, but today’s Woot! item shows otherwise. The ones you can buy from APC and Belkin are downright ugly. This is the closest APC came to a nice-looking UPS, but only if you bought it with a first-generation iMac.
