I've seen two classic lines on the back of tradies' vans:

"Adelaide Fencing Company: For the best erections in town, when we put it up, it stays up."

"Robert Button Carpet Company: For the best lays in town."

You never forget them. Good marketing IMO. Laughing Laughing Laughing

The official date of death of Mr. Stan Laurel and Mr. Oliver Hardy:
Hardy: Aug 7, 1957.
Laurel: Feb 23, 1965.

8x7=56. 2x23=46. 56-46=10. Laurel was 75. Hardy was 65. 75-65=10.

Hardy died at 65 in '57, which is 75 backwards, Laurel died at 75 in '65, which is the age when Hardy died in '57, which is 75 backwards, which is the age when Laurel died, in '65, at age 75, which is '57 backwards, which is when Hardy died, at age 65, to infinity to the tenth power, which is how long Laurel & Hardy will continue entertaining a world in need of laughter ... if we have anything to do with it!


At one point, Stan Laurel had married his first wife once, his second wife twice, and his third wife three times. 1-2-3. Then he spoiled that arithmetic progression, but created a different symmetry. He went back and married his second wife, a third time, and concluded by marrying his fourth wife once. 1-3-3-1. What does this mean? TWICE TWO? Maybe TWICE THREE? You tell us. Perhaps Oliver Hardy had the answer in SONS OF THE DESERT when he said, "I never realized that such a deplorable condition existed in your home."

OK I give up.

I can understand, Laurel was 75. Hardy was 65. 75-65=10.

But where does?

8x7=56. 2x23=46.

56-46=10.

Come into all of this.

a couple of quotes by the master Groucho Marx


Elton John accompanied Groucho to a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar. As the lights went down, Groucho called out, "Does it have a happy ending?" And during the Crucifixion scene, he declared, "This is sure to offend the Jews''  Laughing Laughing Laughing

It was lovely to see you too Bayman. It's been a long time since we had a good chat like that.

And just to keep this thread on track- here's my thought for the day:

"Allegiance, after all has to work two ways; and one can grow weary of an allegiance which is not reciprocal" James Baldwin.
