Yeah, I know but the rest was funny. But work as long as I can? Not gonna happen. He's talking to the rest of the population, not the folks here.

So there was this FA18 Hornet chasing a Tomahawk cruise missle which hit some containers on a moving ship. Thereby disturbing some pigeons slumber. But the pigeons were quickly aroused and successfully regained flight control after the blast wave.

This one is so absurd but well done so it is actually very funny.


Watch the little old lady at the end.

To me, it's a litany of all the things you should be FIGHTING as you age. To wit: If you catch yourself talking about nothing but your ailments...just stop, no matter how sympathetic the audience, and insert some comment about current events, or cooking, or anything except your aging bod.

Some engineers are never bored or boring.

This guy made a machine that puts a knot in a necktie. Maybe next he will do one with a windsor.

Some ladies occupations are tough to figure out. But a good deal of entertainment is provided in the process.

I have long been a fan of This Old House and recently ran across this parody online from 1988. Somewhere I think I have it on VHS tape in my vast collection of aging tapes. This was a fun parody titled "This Old Shack". Video quality isn't that great, but still worth a few laughs.
