The next day the two brothers set off as slow as they possibly can. In the first day they don't even make a mile, and at the end of the day they decided to stop at an inn to rest. The two brothers told the inn keeper about their race. The inn keeper told them only two words. The next day the two brothers set off as fast as they could go. What were the two words that the inn keeper told them to make them race so fast?
Happy Hour.

I was channelling Marge there. She goes to a show where a magician/hypnotist asks for a volunteer and, because she's a bit tipsy, goes up onstage saying, "I'll do it. I always end up doing it," - so, yes. MOM.

now imagine this smiley with a big pile of blue hair on its head:

So the guy walks right up to me and says--get this--he says "Hey, buddy..." and nobody, by the way, calls me buddy and gets away with it if I have anything to say on the subject, and believe you me, I do, and I will, and it's called a knuckle sandwich if you have to know, but that's neither here nor there, so the guy says "Hey, buddy..." and first of all, can you believe the nerve of this clown, speaking to me like that in such a manner?

So, an infrared photon walks into a bar and says, "Is it hot in here, or is it just me?"
