Ever since I was a young boy, Megabogue
I've sprayed phones in the mall. "Brick Wall Painter"
From Footscray to Beaumaris Pommy
I must have sprayed them all. MoccaSIN
But I ain't seen anything like him,
In any children's court...
That deaf dumb and blind bogue
Sure paints a mean brick wall!
He's a brick wall painter
He has to be a twit.
A brick wall painter,
He's really such a git.
Why do you think he does it? I don't know!
What is the appeal?
Rejection of society,
Or something deep like that,
That's what the doctors tell us
But it's a load of crap.
He's really just a vandal, Megabogue
And very bad at that... "Brick Wall Painter"
That deaf dumb and blind bogue Pommy
What a stupid twat! MoccaSIN
I remember from some random class I took when I was in middle school that you
can create a grammatically correct sentence with just the word "Buffalo," as
buffalo is an animal (a noun), a place (a proper noun which can be used as an
adjective) and a verb (meaning to bewilder). Thus, you can have "Buffalo
buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo." as a perfectly correct sentence that will
confuse people nicely!!!!

and a pit bull is the lipstick."
"The uniform companies love us."

anyone who wants to can be a cheerleader,
so they have 73 (!) cheer leaders.
"The difference between life and the movies is that a script
has to make sense, and life doesn't." - Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Did you hear about the cross-eyed teacher?
He couldn't control his pupils!
If I had five sweets and a girl asked me for one, how many would I have left?
What happened to the blonde who slept with her head under the pillow?
The tooth fairy came and took all her teeth out!
What do you call a girl with two toilets?
What do you get if you cross a bear with a skunk?
Winnie the Phew!
Why did the blind chicken cross the road?
To get to the bird's eye shop!
Where does the ten-ton eagle sleep?
Anywhere it likes!

-if you have to ask get out of the way-
Have you ever been stopped by a traffic cop and, while he was
writing a ticket or giving you a warning, you got the feeling that
he would just love to yank you out of the car, right through the
window, and smash your face into the front fender?...
