Backstay, never bought a suit, never went to Vegas
Surprised that they didn't write the vehicle off. I had a Focus RS that flooded to a lesser extent than that and the thing was condemned and replaced with a new one by insurance.

I begged them to total it, as I figured it would kill my resale value! I traded it in year or so later for a different ride, and I don't think it hurt the value. But the BMW dealer was probably just going to wholesale it. IIRC Geico paid around 6 grand to fix it, and it was a fairly new 30k car, so made sense for them, rather than to total it.

Snaggs, it may be common, but pretty offensive to some of us of Hebraic origin! I know, HTFU and all that. Still, I'd like to see the term go away. Just sayin.'

Easy guys- don’t make me fire up the space laser. We’re already over budget for the year and my check from Soros has been held up in the mail.
You say you dont like the term 'Jewish Lightning' and dont want us to use it anymore. Yeah... no..I dont think we can agree to that. Its an accepted term in the American lexicon. Like 'Irish Twins'. They even have a course on it at Yeshiva U. Business School. And as for Mr Clean's objection, in his case Jewish Lightning could mean what would happen to him if he ever walked into a synagouge. Im trying to do him a mitzvah.

Let me ask you... When Swedes are called 'The Jews of Scandinavia', is that a derogatory term?

Nice. A little antisemitism always brightens up the holiday period.

You’re a turd, Jeff

The Jolly Beggar II


THERE was a jolly beggar, and a begging he was bound,
And he took up his quarters into a landart town.
Fa la la, etc.
He wad neither ly in barn, nor yet wad he in byre,
But in ahint the ha-door, or else afore the fire.
The beggar’s bed was made at een wi good clean straw and hay,
And in ahint the ha-door, and there the beggar lay.
raise the goodman’s dochter, and for to bar the door,
And there she saw the beggar standin i the floor.
He took the lassie in his arms and to the bed he ran,
‘O hooly, hooly wi me, sir! ye’ll waken our goodman.’
The beggar was a cunnin loon, and neer a word he spake
Until he got his turn done, syne he began to crack.
‘Is there ony dogs into this town? maiden, tell me true.’
‘And what wad ye do wi them, my hinny and my dow?’
‘They’ll rive a’ my mealpocks, and do me meikle wrang.’
‘O dool for the doing o’t! are ye the poor man?’
Then she took up the mealpocks and flang them oer the wa:
‘The d--l gae wi the mealpocks, my maidenhead and a’!
‘I took ye for some gentleman, at least the Larid of Brodie;
O dool for the doing o’t! are ye the poor bodie?’
took the lassie in his arms and gae her kisses three,
And four-and-twenty hunder merk to pay the nurice-fee.
He took a horn frae his side and blew baith loud and shrill,
And four-and-twenty belted knights came skipping oer the hill.
And he took out his little knife, loot a’ his duddies fa,
And he was the brawest gentleman that was amang them a’.
The beggar was a cliver loon and he lap shoulder height:
‘O ay for sicken quarters as I gat yesternight!’
