Joke of the day

It’s ROFLtime:

Man comes home from work to find his wife dressed to the nines. “What’s going on?” he asks.
“We never go out. I want you to take me somewhere expensive tonight.”
They get in the car and begin driving. After a few minutes she turns to him and says “Where are we going?”
“Well, you said take you somewhere expensive, so we’re going to the gas station.”

Funny, right? Ha fucking ha. Hilarious. Have you paid for a tank of gas this week? If we’re busy fighting wars for oil, can we maybe, oh, I dunno, get some of it? Because this is killing me. And you. And business. And transportation. And food prices. And everything else that requires a plane, train, ship, car, truck or van to move it from A to B.

The joke is adapted from this month’s Playboy Party Jokes page, BTW. And as an aside, the auto-tag suggesting system recognized the “old joke” format of this thing and before I added commentary, it suggested ‘Allo ‘Allo and Benny Hill as tags. I was pretty impressed.

    Have you paid for a tank of gas this week?

    I haven’t, but I’ve minimized my driving as much as possible. (Well, usually have anyway.) Thank god I’m not driving to Dallas and back once a week anymore, though.

    I usually gas up at Shell, because they knock ten cents a gallon off if you’ve got a Kroger Plus card and have spent $100 at Kroger that week. Which… doesn’t help that much since they’ve gotta raise the price some to keep up with that (clearly they didn’t expect to become quite so popular), but at least it helps a little.

    Yeah! It’s a natural resource, like rich peoples’ money!

    Let’s give all the gas to Michael Moore so he can redistribute it! Fairly, of course.

    Why give more gas to Moore? He is already a gasbag with his own gravitational pull due to the size of his ego/ass.

    Speaking of redistributing things. Wouldn’t it be fun if we could once and for all destroy the collectivist idea by actually redistributing things? My bet is that by the end of the first month or so, things would be back to the same. With very few exceptions, the stupid people would again be poor, the industrious and creative ones rich, and your usual collectivist screaming we need to redistribute things again.

    As the cheese-eating-surrender-monkeys like to say: Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

    Actually, I know all that it would take to shoot that idea down pretty well:

    Not paying an actor who had supported the idea, and saying that his salary would be going to buy tickets for people that couldn’t afford to see the movie.

    I’m in Western Australia, and it’s US$6 a gallon here at the moment. I’d love to have your petrol prices.

    Sweden. US$8 a gallon. The price obviously is very dependant on currency fluctuations. The price is probably lower than 8 if you take that into account.

    We tax the hell out of fossil fuels, which makes up for major part of the difference.

    On a side note. Why the hell can’t you guys just use litres, like civilized people do? ;) I have to google your gallons and pounds every time.

    T’was a jest. ‘Tis verily unfathomable that my every utterance be interpreted as akin those of the Hun, battle-mad with conquerlust.

    I know its not a joke, but can I add to the quote pool?
