Harlow was fixing a door and he found that he needed a new hinge, so he sent his wife Mary to the hardware store. At the hardware store, Mary saw a beautiful teapot on a top shelf while she was waiting for Carl, the manager, to finish waiting on a customer.
When Carl was finished, Mary asked how much for the teapot.
Carl replied, “That’s a unique signed and numbered limited edition and it costs $100!”
“My goodness, that sure is a lot of money!” Mary exclaimed. Then she proceeded to describe the hinge that Harlow had sent her to buy, and Carl went to the back room to find it.
From the back room Carl yelled, “Mary, you wanna screw for that hinge?”
Mary replied, “No, but I will for the teapot.”
This is why you can’t send a woman to a hardware store.
It was considered a unique find and the writings were said to be at least Three thousand years old! The piece of stone was removed, brought to the museum, and archaeologists from around the world came to study the ancient symbols. They held a huge Meeting after months of conferences to discuss the meaning of the markings. The President of the society pointed to first drawing and said: “This is a Woman. We can see these people held women in high esteem. You can also tell they were intelligent, as the next symbol is a donkey, so they were smart enough to have animals help them till the soil. The next drawing is a shovel, which means they had tools to help them.”
Even further proof of their high intelligence is the fish which means that if a famine hit the earth and food didn’t grow, they seek food from the sea. The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were evidently Hebrews.
The audience applauded enthusiastically.
Then a little old Jewish man stood up in the back of the room and said, “Idiots, Hebrew is read from right to left…… It says: ‘Holy Mackerel Dig the Ass on that Chick.’ ”
A Japanese student recently uploaded a picture of a small fish he had caught to Twitter, where it quickly went viral because of the creature’s likeness to a painting.
Featuring unusually large eyes, and blue-ish scales of various shapes and sizes, the unusually-looking fish instantly caught people’s attention. Taking a good look at it, it’s easy to see why people started referring to it as “Picasso Fish”, and sharing the picture on various social networks. Eventually, the photo was picked up by Japan’s Fuji Television, which consulted experts about the creature and learned that it was actually a rather common deep-sea fish with a rather striking appearance.
According to Japanese deep-sea experts, the”Picasso Fish” is actually a specimen of Polyipnus matsubarai, a species living in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, including Japan and the Philippines. Despite its weird appearance, the so-called Matsubarai candle fish is apparently non-toxic and edible, although none of the consulted experts ever tried eating one.
For those who wince at sports car showoffs, this wacky annual show is a sight for sour eyes.
Pebble Beach Car Week is the worst. Crowds, traffic, rich old dudes showing off their expensive toys—it’s an altar to fossil fuel-powered excess. Like other sane people, I knew to steer clear of the Monterey Bay for Car Week. Until I read about Concours D’Lemons.
The coveted “worst in show” award went to this almost-sort-of-quasi-replica Ferrari Enzo kit car, which is really a Pontiac Fiero in disguise.
Held at a location affectionately called “the oil stain,” D’Lemons is a celebration of the world’s worst cars. Here, the crappier or weirder, the better.
This wagon painted in 128 different colors won the “sight for sour eyes” award.
It’s a porous event, with no official borders. There’s an impromptu garage or surreal show-and-tell around every corner. By 10 am, competitors and spectators alike are drunk. Wise attendees avoid eye contact with the red-cheeked, Guy Fierri-costumed army of car dudes (trust me, it’s a demographic) talking up their garbage.
Every summer for the past decade, diehard car freaks have congregated on the lawn of Seaside’s City Hall to pretend like they own cool cars.
The most recent D’Lemons, held last August, was the 10th anniversary, explains Alan Galbraith, who’s known as Head Gasket and calls himself the idiot behind the whole thing. “2009 was our first year according to the court records and arrest warrants,” he quips.
Rougher around the edge than its put-together sister Concours d’Elegance, d’Lemons is where you go to avoid the automotive pretense.
A fanatic himself, Galbraith had been working Car Week for years before he came up with the idea. “I had done just about everything there is to do, you know, from helping friends with cars to volunteering at the show,” he says. “Finally it just got a little stuffy and I was looking for a way to let a little bit of air out of that balloon. I started this to feature cars that don’t get featured any place else.”
You won’t find pristine metallic paint jobs at this car show. Here, rust and disrepair rule.
Unlike it’s prettier and more popular sister event, the Concours d’Elegance, d’Lemons is all about kitsch, crap, and absurdity. Rust, wood paneling, matte spray paint, faux fur—normally a landfill aesthetic—are all materials that are celebrated here.
The inside of this van was shagged out with flowing tufts of white carpet and a shrine to Farrah Fawcett.
There are oddities like the Yugo–the worst car ever made–so poorly engineered it’s had more of a life as a punchline than a vehicle. There are also kit cars, street-legal Franken-mobiles made from disparate parts that count amongst their ranks at least one fake Enzo Ferrari—a counterfeit speedster some bros built that ended up winning “worst in show.” (It was subsequently covered in silly string, a d’Lemons tradition.)
Despite its reputation as the worst car ever made, Yugos like this one still get meticulous restorations and highly attentive care.
As the day winds to a halt, Head Gasket reminds everyone that it’s a free event and you get what you pay for. If you like cars that never should have never been made, then Concours d’Lemons is a feast for your trash-loving eyes.
Like many vehicles here, this motorized and capsulized tricycle begs the question: Why?
The dude saved a bunch of people, It’s clear that it’s not a fence, but piece of shit. It’s a good thing he didn’t lean on it. The fleeing hero checked for safety. We must find him and give him a medal!
President Donald Trump has done it again. He just keeps winning. He just keeps proving the Trump Doctrine works magnificently.
Don’t look now, but Trump has even built his wall — and Mexico is paying for it. More on that later.
First, I want to explain how and why Trump is winning like no president in history. Even UFC legend Conor McGregor just called President Trump the GOAT — as in “the greatest of all time.”
It’s all because of the Trump Doctrine, a mixture of Trump’s unique business acumen and negotiating skills. No other politician in the world has this combination of traits.
Like McGregor, Americans can see Trump is getting tangible results.
First, the economy. Trump has created an economic miracle and a true Goldilocks economy. It’s perfect. It’s just right.
Trump knows jobs. We have millions of jobs. He knows how to get things moving. We’ve seen a dramatic bump in economic growth. He focuses with laser-like intensity on the middle class. We’re enjoying dramatic middle-class wage growth. He understands stocks. We’re in the midst of one of the greatest stock markets of all time. Yet there’s virtually no inflation. This is the perfect economy.
Second, Trump understands the art of the deal. Actually, he wrote the book on it. America is the economic engine of the world. Every country in the world needs us more than we need it. Without our consumers, the world is out of business.
So Trump understands America is in the driver’s seat. We are in the perfect position to make demands. The rest of the world has no choice but to blink. Under Trump, we are no longer the world’s doormat.
We won with China. Trump brought the country to its knees. China came back to the table and capitulated. It was a massive victory for the U.S. economy, small business, manufacturers, farmers, energy companies and American jobs.
We won with Iran. Iran responds only to strength. Trump flexed America’s muscle. Not only did Iran cave like a paper tiger but the Iranian people were also emboldened. Trump inspired them to rise up against their evil leaders. Iranian protesters days ago refused to step on an American flag. Trump’s strength has changed the world.
Now we get to Mexico. Illegal immigrant crossings nationwide are down almost 80%. At the Arizona-Mexico border, illegal crossings are down by 94%. Once-overcrowded dorms, where we house illegal border crossers, are now empty. And Mexico is keeping illegals who demand asylum on their side of the border. It’s another huge Trump victory.
How did he do it? Trump won a masterful negotiation with Mexico. Trump understood Mexico needs us far more than we need it. We could make its economy crumble in a nanosecond. Mexico blinked, just like China and Iran.
Faced with tariffs and economic ruin, Mexican officials agreed to place thousands of troops, at their expense, at both their northern and southern borders. Suddenly, no one can get through. A Mexican journalist just named this human wall of Mexican troops “Trump’s Wall.”
So, in fact, Trump has built the wall, a human wall. And Mexico is paying for it. Bravo.
That’s the real Trump Doctrine. #WINNING.
In his Moscow neighborhood, Russian artist Nikita Golubev aka Pro Boy Nick uses dirt found on trucks and vans to draw ephemeral artworks with his fingers. The spectacular results clearly remind us of the reverse graffiti technic. Seeing those dirty pieces, only rain will be able to erase these temporary artworks. The owners love them so much that they now refuse to wash their trucks!
