Saturdays with Lileks, II

1. "Mr. Farakhan, there's a Mother Ship here to see you."

2. "Frank Lloyd Wright designed it during his 'enormous, terrifying air duct' phase."

3. We've secretly replaced this man's air duct with the space shuttle's main engine. Let's see if he notices.

4. "I hear you, Lou. That is one tough Jumble."

5. "I don't know any other way to put it, Lou. But, when I think about you, I touch myself."

6. "This is urgent. Some fellow named Tuttle is going around fixing ductwork without a form 27b/6"

7. One day, the office muzak played Ride of the Valkyries and everyone died.

"It's OK to talk, this room has a noise dampener."
"What?"
"I said ..."

Best of ColoradoPatriot .
"Okay, Johnson, but just this one last time. Put a quarter in the slot, turn the crank and the gumball comes out from up here."

Best of Bubbalove .
(circa sometime in the late 1930's - at a meeting of the top members of the Illuminati and Freemasons) "So...you want to take this 'embryo' that is the true spawn of Satan and implant it in this floozy you know down in Hope, Arkansas? Hmm..it's devious..unexpected..I like it."

Best of Submariner .
SETI leadership was a bit confused over why their fillings heated up every time they broadcast a microwave greetings to Alpha Centauri.

"The funny thing is, this is your Hell, but they have the exact same room up there..."

So, just how many garage doors is this guy gonna crash through before he realizes what the remote is for?

Captain Pike, in the first official test of the transporter, would be forever fused to his chair and forced to answer questions with simple blinks of a light.

Harry held up a handwritten note: "I think the room is bugged!"

Submariner said...

Damn, Morty! How deep you gonna stick that finger up your nose?

Submariner said...

Hmmmmm. Poison on the apples... Hillary does like apples... Ok, we'll try it. Have the NSA ask the boss.

Submariner said...

Commander Lessard? There's a little "congratulation" gift under the table from me and the boys...

Submariner said...

"No, I know what ING is. I meant what's that above our head?"

"Morganna the kissing bandit dropped a pastie."

I realy don't think it works Andy. It kinda clashes with the desk.

sonicfrog said...

Damned it Fred. The NSA knows way too much about the operation.

But how??? I didn't tell 'em nothin'!

There has GOT TO BE a bug in here SOMEWHERE!
