Weekend Assignment #173

Weekend Assignment #173 from John: Share a joke. Make it funny. Also, since I'll want to link back to them, and I am, after all, but a cog in the great AOL machine, keep it reasonably clean and free of ethnic/sexual put-downs. You know.

Put the joke up on your blog or journal and then come back and leave a link in the comment thread (if you don't have a blog or journal, you can leave the joke in the comment thread. But remember, if you have a journal/blog, the point to let the massive attendance of this blog push people to your online home, with fame and fortune to follow!).

I just got this from friend Barry, who worked at the Chevy dealership with me years ago. As I woman I don't feel this is a sexual put-down...I think sometimes it's very close to the truth.  And the reason is...we have so much going on in our lives we get a little "scatter brained" sometimes.

Okay Linda that is really good, you must have been with me when I went to one of those things.  That's why I prefer the ones you park your car and walk up to.
