  1. These sites are a riot! :)

  2. Dude, a bung hole is the hole drilled into a cask that you put the cork or spigot into!


  3. Yeah, but it still sounds dirty.

    *bevis and butthead laugh*

  4. My bad — I should know better than to start off a comment with, “Dude,” …


  5. Dude, that’s like, totally no prob!

  6. Not sure if everyone gets this:

    The “perfectly good airplane” crack is an old paratrooper joke.

    “Why the Hell would anyone jump out of a perfectly good airplane?”

    It’s meant to (jokingly? justifiably?) disparage the intelligence of those of us who have voluntarily done such patently stupid things without the pressing issue of a crashing plane. As an old paratrooper, I often wonder myself, “Who the Hell was the first geniac who thought this might be a good idea?”

    I’m going with “justifiably”.

  7. Ah! Thanks for the background!

    Used in this context, though, it’s still pretty funny. :D

  8. But where is the photo of “Patsy’s Needlehole”
    (which you still haven’t sent to me) ;-p

  9. Actually, it’s in the bug garden flickr pool.
    And I should use it here, too :)
