  1. John, I am so honored! Never gotten that award before. I’m sure that’s really a “thing”! 😉

    I think I’ve also gotten the cherished Five Corn Award by Nate and Ratamacue.

  2. Tina – that one rates even higher on the corn-meter, and it made me laugh of course. 😉

    That mug is awesome – I’m upset that it’s discontinued.

  3. Ah yes, geek-wear is the way to go. Reminds me of my “reflections on pi” shirt:

    Those Freudian slippers look hilarious!

  4. That is such a cool shirt! Took me a second to figure it out.

    You won’t believe this. Last night, someone made the “Descartes before the horse” joke, and what’s worse—I didn’t guess the punch line. I’m so lame!

  5. What a coincidence – must mean Descartes is trying to speak to us from the grave. Something about horses I guess – too bad I don’t own one. 😉

  6. A boy is about to go on his first date, and is nervous about what to talk about. He asks his father for advice. The father replies: “My son, there are three subjects that always work. These are food, family, and philosophy.”

    The boy picks up his date and they go to a soda fountain. Ice cream sodas in front of them, they stare at each other for a long time, as the boy’s nervousness builds. He remembers his father’s advice, and chooses the first topic. He asks the girl: “Do you like potato pancakes?” She says “No” and the silence returns.

    After a few more uncomfortable minutes, the boy thinks of his father’s suggestion and turns to the second item on the list. He asks, “Do you have a brother?” Again, the girl says “No” and there is silence once again.

    The boy then plays his last card. He thinks of his father’s advice and asks the girl the following question: “If you had a brother, would he like potato pancakes?”
