Chuck Jones, director of the most brilliant of the Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote cartoons, used to refer to the other people in traffic jams, and those who created them as the Anti-Destination League.
In an interview with the New York Times, he commented:
“Their job is to keep you from getting where you’re going.” Where Mr. Jones was going was to a radio studio in Manhattan, to give yet another interview about his new book of memoirs, “Chuck Amuck: The Life and Times of an Animated Cartoonist.”
“There’s no point in cursing all these other drivers,” he said. “They’re just doing their duty for the league. It helps to know that this traffic is all just part of the conspiracy.”November 6, 2009 7:35 am at 7:35 am #1173767

“Do you believe in the father, the son and the holy ghost?” asks the priest.

If Carlebach sang Racheim in Creedmoor….
“So my holy brothers and especially my holy sisters, the sweetest of the sweet, the highest of the high, let me tell you about the holiest of the holy, the one who gets me to the highest of the high, mamash a gevald, my holy brother Raheem..” (now tune switches to Racheim)
“Raheem, I get my smokes from a kewl homeboy name’Raheem
On the corner of Utica and East New York Raheem
Raheem, Raheem, Raheem.”
“And I want you to know, I want you to know, last night I was wandering around Brooklyn, so lonely, so sad, such a sad night, because, you know, I have 42 different identities and I am trying to cash a Section 8 voucher and I am not having the right ID, and the man who cashes the checks, he says to me, your name is Martin Luther King? GET OUT, GET OUT of HERE I SAY, you are gonna make me land in jail, you no-good, you cheat, you liar, how far do you brothers think you can go with this shtick..”
“So I wander the streets again, because I am so sad, so desperate, so strung out I will do anything to get high, Lord, get me high, get me so high like the holy brothers who are getting high tonight, and then I see Raheem, and he says to me, so holy, so sweet, so high, I give you whatever you want today and you pay me tomorrow OK, after you cash yo’ check from Uncle Sam!”
“So holy, so high, Raheem, he gives me three joints, three joints that I share with two holy brothers I am meeting on the street, and we get so holy, so high, and I tell them, you know where I got this holy, this high, this sweet of the sweet, this weed?”
“Raheem, there ain’t no one else like Raheem,
He give out free samples too Raheem,
Don’matter if you goy or Jew, Raheem, Raheem, Raheem!”
“And there we are, me and these two holy brothers, so sweet, the sweetest of the sweet, now I want you to know, I want you to know, what is it again I want you to know, you know, it is mamash a gevald, sometimes this smoking, it is so high, so holy, so sweet, the holiest of holies, so you know, it makes me forget what I want you to know, so what is it I want you to know again,”
“Raheem, there ain’t no bro as holy as Raheem!
He let you get high fo’ nothin’ Raheem!
Raheem, Raheem, Raheem!”
“Now, you know, one of these holy brothers, he is so sweet, so holy, so special, such a holy man, sometimes you see the holiest people you know, in places that are not so holy, and they are not looking so holy, they are so special, so sweet, and he tell me, come, come with me, we go together to the holy brother Raheem.”
“Raheem, the sweet and the holy Raheem
With Raheem yo’ never alone Raheem
Raheem, Raheem, Raheem..”
“And we go to the holy brother Raheem, and the holy brother he tell the other holy brother, you know, it is mamash a gevald, this brother, he is so holy, so special, so sweet, he tell me you give us the holiest of the holiest of weeds and he doesn’t want you to pay..
Now Brother Raheem, you know, he gets so angry sometimes, it is so bad, so sad, so unholy to get angry and he say to the brother, you think I am crazy, I give you holy smoke fo’ nuthin? This brother he is a holy Chossid, a holy brother, from the Creedmoorer rebbe, the holy of holies, the sweetest of the sweet, the Creeeeeedmoorer, the tzaddik of all eight sections! But you, who yo’ be? How I know you pay me back? So he throw out the holy brother, and, you know, it is mamash a gevald, the holy brother, he is so poor, so sad, so oppressed, that he steals my wallet and runs away, and there he is going away with my 42 section 8 vouchers, so holy, so special is Section 8, like welfare it is so holy, so special, so pure….”November 13, 2009 3:40 am at 3:40 am #1173773smartcookieMember

Bear, that is so wrong on so many levels. I’m not big into Carlebach, but I’m surprised the Mod(s) let it through (perhaps they don’t like Carlebach?) At best it’s tasteless humor, but I think it’s more like into the Motzi Shem Ra category.November 13, 2009 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #1173776smartcookieMember

Why, when companies make products more expensive they make cheaper quality? We bought liquid soap for Pesach. Same size bottle as all year round, more expensive, NO quality! I heard that Kedem says that they put in as much water as possible into their wines. If you put in any more, it won’t be wine. The same is true with the soap! It is more like diluted, flavored, scented diet water!
What about the paper towels? More expensive but very cheap quality. And the same is true for foil! Its ridiculous!!!January 10, 2011 12:45 am at 12:45 am #1173791

The Israelis and Arabs realised that, if they continued fighting, they would someday end up destroying the whole world. So, they decided to settle their dispute with an ancient practice: a duel of two, like David and Goliath. This “duel” would be a dog fight.
The negotiators agreed each side would take 5 years to develop the best fighting dog they could. The dog that won the fight would earn its people the right to rule the disputed areas. The losing side would have to lay down its arms for good.
The Arabs found the biggest, meanest Dobermans and Rottweilers in the world. They bred them together and then crossed their offspring with the meanest Siberian wolves.
They selected only the biggest, strongest puppy of each litter, fed it the best food and killed all the other puppies. They used steroids and trainers in their quest for the perfect killing machine. After the 5 years were up, they had a dog that needed steel prison bars on its cage. Only expert trainers could handle this incredibly nasty and ferocious beast.
When the day of the big dog-fight finally arrived, the Israelis showed up with a very strange-looking animal, a Dachshund that was 10 feet long!
Everyone at the dogfight arena felt sorry for the Israelis. No one there seriously thought this weird, odd-looking animal stood any chance against the growling beast over in the Arab camp. All the bookies took one look and predicted that the Arab dog would win in less than a minute.
As the cages were opened, the Dachshund slowly waddled toward the center of the ring.
The Arab dog leaped from its cage and charged the giant wiener-dog. As he got to within an inch of the Israeli dog, the Dachshund opened its jaws and swallowed the Arab beast whole in one bite. There was nothing left but a small puff of fur from the Arab killer dog’s tail floating to the ground.
The stunned crowd of international observers, bookies and media personnel let out a collective gasp of disbelief and surprise.
The Arabs approached the Israelis, muttering and shaking their heads in disbelief. “We do not understand,” said their leader, “Our top scientists and breeders worked for 5 long years with the meanest, biggest Dobermans, Rottweilers and Siberian wolves, and they developed an incredible killing machine of a dog!”
The Israelis replied. “Well, for 5 years, we have had a team of Jewish plastic surgeons from Boca Raton working to make an alligator look like a Dachshund.”May 12, 2011 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #1173794believerParticipant

A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and completely tore the door off of the driver’s side. The counselor immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled up.
Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically. His Lexus, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter what the body shop did to it.
When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief.
“I can’t believe how materialistic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you don’t notice anything else.”
“How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, “Don’t you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you.”
“Ahhh!” screamed the lawyer. “Where’s my Rolex!”September 21, 2011 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #1173803littleappleMember

Annoying Scientific Laws?
Law of Mechanical Repair
After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch
Law of Gravity
Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
Law of Probability
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
Law of Random Numbers
If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal & someone always answers.
Law of the Alibi
If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire.
If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).
Law of the Bath
When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone or doorbell rings.
Law of Close Encounters
The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with.
Law of the Result
When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, it will.
Law of Biomechanics
The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
Law of the Auditorium
At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet & who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies & stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.
The Coffee Law
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
Murphy’s Law of Lockers
If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.
Law of Physical Surfaces
The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness & cost of the carpet or rug
Law of Logical Argument
Anything is possible if you don’t know what you are talking about
Brown’s Law of Physical Appearance
If the clothes fit, they’re ugly.
Oliver’s Law of Public Speaking
A closed mouth gathers no feet.
Wilson’s Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy
As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.
If you don’t feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you’ll feel better. But if you don’t make an appointment, you’ll stay sick.May 18, 2012 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #1173807writersoulParticipant
BTW it was the Japanese who bombed Pearl Harbor (though it does feel stupid to be making a 2 year old correction).
A man is late for an important business meeting, and he’s right outside the office building, circling the block, on the lookout for a parking spot. There are none to be found, even on the next blocks over. Driven by desperation, he screams out, “God in Heaven! If You help me find a spot I’ll learn for three hours extra a day! I’ll take every single chumra ever dreamed of upon myself! I’ll—“
As he is enumerating his promises, a car pulls out of a spot, right in front of the door to the man’s building.
The man sees the spot, parks, then looks up again and shouts, “Forget it, God— I found one!”

Computer Upgrade – gevaldig!
Message to Tech Support:
Last year I upgraded from Bochur Life 7.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization, where it monitors
all other systems. Applications such as FarbrengenNight 3.0, Party Night 2.5, BaglesSnoozes 6.1 and Hangout 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.
In addition, applications such as Garbage Out 3.3 and House Work 2.1 have gone from select-as needed to continuous schedule Ignoring them causes Night-on-the-Couch 1.0 to take over all activity. I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications.
I am thinking about going back to BochurLife 7.0, but the uninstall does not work on this program Can you help me, please!!
A Distressed User
Dear Distressed User:
This is a very common complaint which is mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people upgrade from BochurLife 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES program. Wife 1.0 is in fact an OPERATING SYSTEM and was designed to run everything. It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to BochurLife 7.0. It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the system once
installed. You cannot go back to BochurLife 7.0 because Life1.01 is not designed to do this.
Some have tried to install BochurLife 7.0 or Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than the original system. Look in your manual under ‘Warnings-Alimony/Child Support’. I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and just deal with the situation.
I suggest installing background application program C:YES DEAR to alleviate software augmentation. Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPFs). You must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur,regardless of their cause.
The best course of action will be to enter the command C:APOLOGIZE. In any case avoid excessive use of YES DEAR because
ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to normal.
The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all the GPFs. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but very high maintenance. Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds
5.0. Do not, under any circumstances, install OtherFriends 3.3 as a primary operating system. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.
Thanks for using our Tech Support.August 9, 2012 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #1173809
For years, Morty Goldberg spent his Saturdays golfing. But when his wife died, he regularly began attending Saturday morning services so that he could say kaddish for her.
Once the period had passed, the ritual chair asked Morty if he
would like an aliyah the following Saturday. Morty said he’d be honored.
But when folding up his tallis after the service, he realized if he was going
to have an aliyah, he really should have his tallis cleaned.
So on his way to work Monday morning, he figured he’d stop at Cohen’s
Dry Cleaning and drop off the tallis. He pulls into the parking lot and
proceeds to blanche when he sees the sign on the door: Achmed’s Dry
He goes in and asks the owner, “What happened to Cohen?”
“Sir,” said Achmed, “Mr. Cohen has retired. I spent many years working
for him, and I bought out his business. And I am proud to say that many
of his best customers still use my services.”
Morty shows him that tallis and asks if he can have it clean by Fridy.
“Friday is my sabbath,” explained Achmed. “But I can have it ready
for you Thursday.”
Even better, Morty thinks, so he leaves the tallis with Achmed.
Thursday he comes to pick it up, and sure enough, it’s ready and
hanging on a hanger in side a protective plastic overcover. “How
much do I owe you?” he asks.
“$49.95 plus tax,” Achmed answers.
“$49.95!” screams Morty. “Cohen never charged me more than
five bucks to clean my tallis.”
“Yes, Mr. Goldberg,” said Achmed, “but Mr. Cohen never got all
the knots out…”August 10, 2012 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm #1173810August 10, 2012 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1173811August 10, 2012 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #1173812
