“My Name is Nobody”: barroom pimpslap scene, Terence Hill, 1973

Filed under: Entertainment,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 8:00 pm

Funny stuff.  Great western, one of my favorites.  Starred Terence Hill and Henry Fonda.  This is one of the best scenes from the movie, but there are many more.  It is available on DVD.

Humour Du Jour: You may not get it if you ain’t a country boy

Filed under: Humour — aproposofnothing @ 10:04 pm

Prior to her trip to Texas, Buffy (a New Yorker), confided to her co-workers she had three goals for her trip to the Lone Star State.
1. She wanted to taste some real Texas Bar-B-Que.
2. She wanted to take in a bona fide rodeo. And..
3. She wanted to have sex with a real cowboy.
Upon her return, the girls were curious as to how she fared .
“Let me tell you, they have a tree down there called a Mesquite and when they slow cook that brisket over that Mesquite, it’s ooooh so good. The taste is unbelievable!”
“And I went to a real rodeo. Talk about athletes…those guys wrestle full grown
bulls! They ride horses at a full gallop, then jump off the horses and grab the bull by the horns and throw them to the ground! It is just incredible!”
They then asked, “Well tell us, did you have sex with a real cowboy?”
“Are you kidding? When I saw the outline of the condom they carry in the back pocket of their jeans, I changed my mind!”

Dear Pastor,

This is a really funny post from Theo Spark.

I walked down the busy footpath, knowing I was late for an important meeting. My eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds that are found in every city these days.

What they said about the nature of the universe

Filed under: Fun Stuff — aproposofnothing @ 8:25 pm
Carl Zwanzig:
“Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together….”
Douglas Adams:
“There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
Albert Einstein:
“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
“Astronomers say the universe is finite, which is a comforting thought for those people who can’t remember where they leave things.”
Edward P. Tryon:
“In answer to the question of why it happened, I offer the modest proposal that our Universe is simply one of those things which happen from time to time.”
John Andrew Holmes:
“It is well to remember that the entire universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.”
Max Frisch:
“Technology is a way of organizing the universe so that man doesn’t have to experience it.”
Kilgore Trout:
“The universe is a big place, perhaps the biggest.”
Woody Allen:
“I’m astounded by people who want to ‘know’ the universe when it’s hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.”
Douglas Adams:
“In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
William J. Broad:
“The crux… is that the vast majority of the mass of the universe seems to be missing.”
Rich Cook:
“Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.”
Fred Hoyle:
“There is a coherent plan in the universe, though I don’t know what it’s a plan for.”
Ray Bradbury:
“We are an impossibility in an impossible universe.”
Christopher Morley:
“My theology, briefly, is that the universe was dictated but not signed.”
Edward Chilton:
“I’m worried that the universe will soon need replacing. It’s not holding a charge.”
Calvin and Hobbes (Bill Watterson):
“The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.”

Humour du Jour

Filed under: Humour — aproposofnothing @ 8:01 pm

A husband leans over to his wife in a bar and says, “Do you remember the first time we had sex together over 50 years ago? We went behind this very tavern where you leaned against the back fence and I made love to you.”

“Yes,” she says. “I remember it well.”

“OK,” he says, “How about taking a stroll around there again and we can do it for old time’s sake?”

“Oh Charlie, you old devil, that sounds like a crazy, but very good, idea!” she says.

There’s a man sitting in the next booth listening to all this, and having a chuckle to himself. He thinks, I’ve got to see these two old-timers having sex against a fence. I’ll just keep an eye on them so there’s no trouble.

So he follows them behind the tavern. The old lady lifts her skirt and the old man drops his trousers. As she leans against the fence, the old man moves in. Suddenly, they erupt into the most furious sex that the man has ever seen. This goes on for about 40 minutes. Finally, they both collapse panting on the ground.

The man is amazed. After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on. As the couple passes the man, he says to them, “Excuse me, but that was something else. You must’ve had a fantastic sex life together. Is there some sort of secret to this?”

The old man says, “Fifty years, ago that wasn’t an electric fence.”

Great Comedy – Keen Eddie

Filed under: Entertainment,Fun Stuff,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 9:20 pm

This show came out 3-4 years ago, but I read something recently that reminded me of it. This is one of the best shows that I have seen on TV in the last 10 years or so. Unfortunately, the morons at Fox canceled it after 7 episodes. Brave picked it up and aired all 13.

After his investigation into an oxycodone ring results in a botched drug bust, New York police Detective Eddie Arlette is sent to London to assist Scotland Yard with its work on the same case. Eddie and his British police partner, Inspector Monty Pippin, help crack the case, and Eddie is asked to stay on at Scotland Yard.In addition to his work, Eddie has an adversarial relationship with Fiona (Sienna Miller), who occupies the flat he is renting from her parents; she begrudgingly puts up with him (and his Bull Terrier, Pete), because he has threatened to reveal to her parents that she is not actually enrolled at university. Eddie also has albeit a seemingly imaginary flirtatious relationship with Carol Ross (Superintendent Nathanial Johnson’s assistant), whom he calls “Ms. MoneyPenny” and with whom he banters using double entendres of a sexual nature.

Here’s a couple of clips:
