All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Alpha Male

Husband: I just saw a very beautiful woman.

Wife: Really? Then what happened?

Husband: I just kept on admiring her, on and on...

Wife (getting irritated): WHAT happened then?

Husband smiled and said: You're still here!

Impress a Girl

An older man, not in the best physical condition, asked the trainer in the gym, "I want to impress a beautiful young girl. Which machine should I use?"

The trainer replied, "Use the ATM machine outside!"

    Nice. Have used variations of that first one on my wife.

  2. It always seems to work too, doesn't it?

    You mean there's supposed to be some kind of benefit generated from this???

    I call my wife my "first wife". She doesn't see the humor in it.

  5. "You mean there's supposed to be some kind of benefit generated from this???"

    Yeah. Why else do we keep them around?

    My belated BJW entry:

    Q: How do Coloradans smoke their meats?
    A: We hang it outside on the clothesline.

    The Black Forest fire is about 5 miles northeast of me with the voluntary evacuation point about 1 mile north, and the wind is blowing the smoke back toward us a bit. One of WaterGirl's clients lost their home and we know of several other people who have lost theirs, including one who runs a dog rescue program who wasn't able to get back home to save the animals.

    This now seems to be worse than the Waldo Canyon fire last year, which covered 18,247 acres and burned about 346 structures. This one is up to at least 15,000 acres with 360 buildings lost, and is currently 0% contained.

    The Royal Gorge fire has burned several buildings around the bridge, and parts of the train system that goes up along the river, though the bridge itself is fine for now (Res, you may remember seeing those on one of our rafting trips). No smoke from there blowing into town here as of yet, but it's not going to be easy breathing if it does.

  7. I'm sorry you are having fire problems this early in the year. Its going to be a bad summer at this rate.
