Things That Sound Dirty at Thanksgiving

Talk about a huge breast!
Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.
It’s Cool Whip time!
If I don’t undo my pants, I’ll burst!
Whew, that’s one terrific spread!
I’m in the mood for a little dark meat.
Are you ready for seconds yet?
It’s a little dry, do you still want to eat it?
Just wait your turn, you’ll get some!
Don’t play with your meat.
Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.
Do you think you’ll be able to handle all these people at once?
I didn’t expect everyone to come at once!
You still have a little bit on your chin.
How long will it take after you stick it in?
You’ll know it’s ready when it pops up.
Wow, I didn’t think I could handle all of that!
That’s the biggest one I’ve ever seen!
How long do I beat it before it’s ready?

Person of the Day – Chevalier d’Eon (1728-1810)

He/she was a diplomat, spy, dragoon officer, swordsman, lady-in-waiting, chess player, and part-time nun.  In the 1760s a total of $230,000 was said to have been wagered on the sex of d’Eon.  A dispute over the bet ended up in court with a judge ruling that d’Eon was a woman.  Upon her demise in 1810, the doctor who certified her death pronounced him to be a male. 

Chastity Bono finally has a hero.

Person of the day – Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

Famed for being a man of few words, his wife once bet him she could get at least three words of conversation out of him.  He quietly replied, “You lose”. 

I wonder what Dr. Phil would have to say about that.

Person of the day-Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

Churchill’s mother was 1/8th Iroquois and she had a fashionable tattoo of a snake twined around her wrist.    Winston followed his mother’s lead and had an anchor tattooed on his arm.  I wonder if Popeye was his hero.

Person of the Day – Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin (b. 1930)

In 1963, Buss received a doctorate from MIT for his thesis on orbital mechanics.  He got the nickname “Buzz” from his little sister who couldn’t say “Brother”, but instead called him “Buzzer”.  I am glad his sister didn’t say something else, because “Butter” Aldrin doesn’t have a ring to it.
