Yeah so, I was in a meeting years ago and this big, fat old guy who looked like Robert Duval in Falling Down but fatter used that expression, and I busted out laughing. Everyone else was staring at me, but I couldn't help it. That just got the big guy all worked up and he started using all sorts of funny expressions to make me laugh. It was not a very productive meeting

I also like when Bill France or whatever his name is asks the doctor if they bruised their squash.

I never watched DoT sober enough to remember any of it.

My old neighbor was in DoT. He gets a check for like $0.18 every time it airs.

As an aside, I love that John C Riley was a mechanic in DoT and basically resumes that role in Talladega Nights.

I always liked, "We're eating ice cream." Hilarious scene to me for some reason.

Terrible movie with lots of good quotes. Which is the type of movie I tend to enjoy.

Hit the pace car scene. Reveal about the staggered tires. The boss firing them when he hits other guy's car. I don't want you getting spoiled, Buck Californians aren't really anything. So many good quotes.

Ohai! I'm apparently late to the party.

Shutdown averted, just a couple of hours and fun times. It really didn't matter since I was off at the oldest's awards ceremony at school. He got an award for excellence in Social Studies. How anyone is excellent and far and above others in Social Studies in Elementary school is beyond me. There's a bunch of douches in his class and they were all sour because they didn't get awards, and I lol'd. There was also another parent there, typical blonde over-aerobicized lady who drives a range rover, who was asking if we were going to be coming to the family dance that happens tonight. I told her no, we have better things to do and I'll be in my recliner with a beer.

I think she wants my "concealed weapon"........see what I did there?

Stepping out of fantasy land, Chachi is a rapist and asparagus causes cancer. What is wrong with the world nowadays?

Good ol' Prop 61, source of innumerable lawsuits "on behalf of the public" that go directly into the lawyer's pockets. They have the warnings on coke machines, new car windows, and pretty much everything else already, so coffee shops is the next logical step.

There's a lawyer who goes through the public record and sends a letter threatening a lawsuit to every property owner in CA, saying he will settle for 50k, then another lawyer sends a letter offering to make the first guy go away for 30k. It's a huge scam. The letter states that he has personally inspected the property and lists off Prop 61 violations, including not having signs at the entrances to underground parking, but it is a form letter since he just ****s them out to everyone so we go a dozen for buildings that don't have parking at all. They are only allowed to sue on behalf of the public, but the guy set up a non-profit and puts the blackmail money in there, then pays himself all the money as a salary for running it.

Genius. But annoying.

And lawyers wonder why everyone hates them.

Also, not sure how genius this is, it's just copying the patent troll system. Or I guess the genius is in setting up a non profit with a catchy name that completely hides the actual purpose? Politicians have been doing that for years.

He's a Henry Ford, not a Nicola Tesla. He just figured out how to fit a couple scams together and then where to point them, not invent something new. Prop 65 (I mistyped earlier) is so poorly written that it is the perfect place to use it. In theory, everything is covered because there is always something carcinogens somewhere.
