My Top 12 Favorite Country Songs....

12. I Hate Every Bone in Her Body But Mine.

11. It's Hard to Kiss the Lips At Night
That Chewed My Ass All Day.

10. If the Phone Don't Ring,
You'll Know It's Me.

9. I Liked You Better Before
I Got to Know You So Well.

8. I Still Miss You Baby,
But My Aim's Gettin' Better.

7. I Wouldn't take her to a Dog Fight
'Cause I'm Afraid She'd Win.

6. I'll Marry You Tomorrow,
But Let's Honeymoon Tonight.

5. I'm So Miserable without you,
It's like You're Still Here.

4. If I Had Shot You When I First wanted To,
I'd Be Out Of Prison By now.

3. My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend and I Sure Do Miss Him.

2. She Got the Ring and I Got the Finger.

And the number 1 Country Song is:

1. I Ain't Never Gone to Bed with Ugly Women
But I've Sure Woke Up With a Few

A Little Humor Is Good For The Soul....

A man was sitting on a blanket at the beach. He had no arms and no legs. Three women, from England, Wales, and Scotland, were walking past and felt sorry for the poor man.

The English woman said "Have you ever had a hug?" The man said "No," so she gave him a hug and walked on.

The Welsh woman said, "Have you ever had a kiss?" The man said, "No," so she gave him a kiss and walked on.

The Scottish woman came to him and said, "'ave ya ever been fooked, laddie?" The man broke into a big smile and said, "No".

She said, "Aye, ya will be when the tide comes in"....

Just wanted to say, after two weeks of my car not running, and driving my SO's Saab, which I have owned three of, Holy Crap! It's Great To Be Driving An E46 Again!!!

It just feels like a well worn pair of gloves. Everything is so comfortable, it's quiet on the road, the steering is precise, it doesn't plow through turns or torque steer when I stand on it. I feel like I've been wearing someone else's underwear for the last two weeks. (Sorry honey)

Just wanted to say...

The Alabama fan base is a fractious mix of two distinct groups who can't really stand each other.

At the top of the list is the 10-15% of the fan base that could actually be admitted to Alabama or attended the school.

This group hates most of the rest of the Alabama fan base with a passionate fury.

Right now they are reading this column and silently nodding.

The other 85% of Bama fans are incapable of coherent thought and have a deep-seated insecurity about all things in life. Alabama football comprises, and this is not an exaggeration, 99% of their self esteem.

Hey Joe copy this into a new thread with a good topic title for your issues. You'll get good replies there. The off topic thread is for all the random stuff and its best not to mix the two.

Did you know, if front parking light bulbs are out, then car uses blinkers as parking lights till light bulbs are replaced.
Those german engineers really thought of everything.
I just found out accidentally, when changed headlights and those new ones were missing light bulbs.

Godzilla trucks! I watch them on the TV once in a while and was expecting the same sort of show. They would be better described in the Perth show as "rolling over cars" rather than crushing the crap out of them, while flying through the air on fire... Maybe I expected too much this time around...

Most of the Monster truck drivers seem pretty big on one-upsmanship....this is a pretty impressive feat, considering that he`s launching a 10,000 pound vehicle around 15 feet in the air....

See! Now that's what I'm talking about!! Wooop!

The first jump leading to the backflip was bigger than the crap here in Perth, and we had Bigfoot and others from the USA here? I'm wondering if there was an Aussie Health & Safety restriction on the guys?!
