Joke of The Day

 A bar in our neighborhood got lots of interesting traffic. Cars swerved into the parking lot, and the drivers would run inside only to reappear minutes later looking confused. One reason might have been the sign outside: "Free Beer, Topless Bartenders, and False Advertising."

Quote of The Day

“If a life of wine, women and song becomes too much, give up singing.”
- Mark Schiess
