Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

A US Marilyn Monroe expert mistakenly identified a nude shot of Madonna as one of the deceased sex icon and has received a kicking from all quarters since. You broke out the old jokes (hey, they're the best ones):

I don't blame the poor chap - it's not like anybody looks at the face, now, is it?

Are you seriously telling me that Mr Nicastro spent all that time examining that photo and didn't notice the modern cars in the background? Even from the smaller image in the link I could tell they weren't late 1950's models.

Good grief.

Tim Brown

There were cars in the picture? There was a road? Etc. etc.


Not quite sure sir, let me take this round back, I've got some, er, special glasses back there. Back in a minute or three...

"...and after four months researching the striking pose..."

Wow! I'm sure this guy must be blind by now - or at least have one arm much larger than the other!

Paris because, um, do I have to spell it out?

A drunken South Korean man stole, killed and attempted to cook his landlady's Chihuahua, but managed to set his clothes on fire in the process. Firemen and police arrived on the scene, and the pooch poacher was arrested and charged with theft. He said he did it because he was hungry. Yes, clearly.

I lived in Korea for two years as an English teacher. While it is true that some Koreans eat dog, it's supposed to be a special breed that's raised for the purpose, and it's also not as prevalent as stereotypes make it out to be. In fact, there is a portion of Koreans who believe that eating dog is bad luck.

The others though think it's good for "stamina" by which they mean fido = viagra.

Maybe the old bloke was randy for his landlady, or was short on rent money.

Stereotypes are never funny! I mean really, it's one thing to poke fun at Koreans and drunks, and even drunken Koreans, but the Chihuahua is a kind, loving, intelligent, albeit intensly annoying pet, and its demise is no laughing matter!

Shame!

Poor man. I bet he's in the doghouse now.

Everyone's had the late night boozy munchies...

"Now, let'sh see ... boil th' water ... add to Not Poodle ... nah, that'sh not right ... wossat noise?"

My dad and some colleagues went on a fishing trip to a slightly rural area. One of the colleagues was from Korea. The first day they got their, said Korean said: "I'll make supper tonight, there are quite a few stray dogs around here."

Needless to say, he NEVER got asked to make supper.

Smart man. I find the same thing usually works with haggis substituted. ®
