I love poking a fire with a stick, and the bigger stick the better! Size counts, don't you know!

What is the origin of this one?? I've never heard it before.

Carrying bricks ARE horrible, especially when you stack them in one arm and the last one is perfectly aligned for nipple-crushing. Damn that's painful!

No one knows where the swan story came from. It seems to be an urban legend that people like to repeat because it sounds like a cool piece of information. There's a lot out there on the net about it, at any rate.

Oddly enough, I can only remember "SHELLOIL" as the punchline, but couldn't ever remember the problem that was supposed to produce that answer...

Frisbees never make it to the ground around me, but if they did, I'm sure I would look cool picking one up.
