A Guy Walks Into A Pharmacy...

This morning I made nice with the Elvis-lite train conductor.

I was in the hut where they sell tickets getting a new one and Mr. Conductor was telling the man in the booth next to the one I was at a joke.

The punch line involved a female pharmacist offering a guy with an erection that wouldn’t go away $3000 a month plus benefits. I smirked and felt I had participated enough.

He looked at me and said ‘c’mon, don’t you think that’s funny?’ to which I replied ‘I’m still pissed that she only offered me $2000.’ This sent him into fits of laughter and I went on my way knowing that I have touched his life yet again.

Now that we’re practically best friends, I’m considering giving him my blog address and pointing him here.

Aww, new friends are fun. When's the first slumber party? Take pics of the pillow fighting, please!

Yeah, let us know how "Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board Goes".

Flannery's on a roll. I hope it's not one of Britney's.

Damn, I miss those slumber parties where you got to lift your friends up into the air and drop them. Fun.

It's nice that you're throwing the old boy a bone and trying to humor him.

It always helps to draw people near before you catch them unawares and throw them under a train.

I apologize for the 'throwing a bone' pun, it was awful.

Wait, people make jokes about erections? Canada is sooooo different from America, where our comedians refuse to work blue.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It is too easy for you to pwn this guy, Dale. Step away from the easy mark and go after something a little more challenging for crying out loud. After you have devastated him, that is.

Evil Genius said...

I'm only into jokes that involve ducks.

Dale,
how do you know that Mr. Conductor or "MC", isn't one of us already?

The conductor told an American joke. Pharmaceuticals are cheaper on your side of the border, hence the lower offer :}

Grant Miller said...

I think Canadian conductors are less surly than their American counterparts.

Dale said...

I'm going to see if we can have it on the train Andi so everyone can get in on the fun!

Flannery Alden, you dirty dirty funny funny girl!

If she shaves all her hair off or attacks a car Beckeye, we're all in trouble.

And did you mean unawares as in underwears Mob? Your no Flannery Mob but you're still pretty damned funny.

We wouldn't need those jokes if it wasn't for our gentler quieter erections Pistols at Dawn.

What I should have done after he started laughing Barbara was say 'thank ya, thank ya verah much'.

One of us pod people Chancelucky? I'll take your generous explanation, thank you.

But is the same true of bloggers Grant?

Coaster Punchman said...

Now Dale, be Christ-like!

Dale said...

I don't have to lay around for 3 days waiting to rise up again do I CP? Man, that's hard on the system.

Slaygirl said...

On the skytrain in Vancouver all they have is an automated voice saying the names of the stops "Granville" etc...the link to this post made me appreciate the automated voice.

X. Dell said...

I take it this conductor doesn't know you were the guy who ratted him out. I don't think I'd point him toward that post, unless you want to hear jokes about yourself during your commute.

Johnny Yen said...

Dale, you're only encouraging him...

Dale said...

I love the automated announcements Slaygirl. I particularly love the voice mail at work. The female voice seems to signal distress when she says You have more than TEN new voice messages. I only love her more for it.

I was more hoping he'd ask me for more material X. Dell so at least I could control the crap I have to hear in the morning. I think now though, I'm part of his joke and he's still telling it.

And I know better Johnny Yen but somehow I'm powerless. Or am I?
