the old man and the beaver

The Old Man And The Beaver



An*86-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up...

The doctor asked him how he was feeling, and the 86-year-old said, 'Things are great and I've never felt better.'I now have a 20 year-old bride who is pregnant with my child.*"So what do you think about that Doc?"*The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began to tell a story.*"I have an older friend, much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a season."One day he was setting off to go hunting. In a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his gun.."*"As he neared a lake, he came across a very large male beaver sitting at the water's edge..*He realized he'd left his gun at home and so he couldn't shoot the magnificent creature. Out of habit he raised his cane, aimed it at the animal as if it were his favorite hunting rifle and went 'bang, bang'."Miraculously, two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead. Now, what do you think of that?" asked the doctor.*The 86-year-old said, "Logic would strongly suggest that somebody else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver."*The doctor replied, "My point exactly."


Yours truly, TURBS

I believe it was pulled down and microscoped before it was officially posted back up.


I thought it was clean but my thoughts are WILDLY different from others.

Hey - I ain't complaining.

What is scary is that my thoughts seem to be in line with yours.

While members have various levels of humor.

"I know it when I see it"

The phrase was famously used by United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart to describe his threshold test for obscenity in Jacobellis v. Ohio (1964).

"I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["hard-core pornography"]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that. [Emphasis added.]"
óJustice Potter Stewart, concurring opinion in Jacobellis v. Ohio 378 U.S. 184 (1964), regarding possible obscenity in The Lovers.

The expression became one of the most famous phrases in the entire history of the Supreme Court.[1]

Stewart's "I know it when I see it" standard was praised as an example of candor[2] and "realistic and gallant."[3]

A well-known quotation of this phrase is found in Goldfinger, when M asks Bond: "What do you know about gold?" and Bond replies with "I know it when I see it."[4]

"While I am no Potter Stewart", if a joke offends anyone (a member taking the time to PM a moderator to complain about it), seems to meet the test.

So for the time being, if a moderator feels a joke is over the top; it is gone.
If a member complains about it; it is gone.

I have to say I STILL laugh about the Leslie Nelsen line in "Naked Gun 2 1/2" and this, ain't that...

If I am reading Herk's position on it correctly, it will stay until someone complains about it.
