TOPIC:  Dork Day

Posted: 7/15/2014, 5:03 a.m. EDT


So I nominated our ugly cat for a Dork award.  Most of the time cat owners win the award because they don't have a cute little doggie.  This year I think a cat should be nominated and win.  After all, cat's are famous for being dorky (along with being stupid and ugly of course).  Our cat has many accomplishments, among which includes award-winning hairballs, and certainly deserves the award.


Take on Tuesday and before you know it it'll be Wednesday.

Dorks Not Allowed ...


A truck driver, hauling a tractor-trailer load of computers, spots a good place to stop for a beer.  As he approaches the bar, and sees a big sign on the door that says,




Hummm, Thinking this is a bit strange, he enters and sits down.


The bartender comes over to him, sniffs, looks him over and says "You smell some kind of dorky".


He then asks him what he does for a living.  The truck driver explains to him that he drives a truck, and the smell is just from the computers he is hauling.  The bartender serves him a beer and says, "OK, truck drivers aren't dorks."


As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in wearing a pair of glasses with tape around the middle, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and pencils, and a belt that is at least a foot too long.  The bartender, without saying a word, pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away.  The truck driver asks him "Why did you do that".  The bartender replied, "Don't worry.  The Dorks are in season because they are overpopulating this whole Silicon Valley. And Hey, "You don't even need a license."


So the truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck, and heads for the freeway.  Suddenly, he veers to avoid an accident, and the load shifts.  The back door breaks open and computers spill out all over the road.  He jumps out and sees a crowd already forming, snatching up all of the computers.  The scavengers are comprised of engineers, accountants and programmers.  Each of them wearing the dorkiest clothes he has ever seen.


He can't let them steal his whole load.  So remembering what happened in the bar, he pulls out his gun and starts blasting away.  Believing he is doing the right thing, the truck driver reloads his gun.  While Preparing to shoot a bunch more of them little nerdy guys, a highway patrol officer comes zooming up and jumps out of his car screaming at him, STOP!!! STOP!!!


"What's wrong officer?  I thought dorks were in season."


"Well, sure," says the patrolman,


"But the limit is one per day, And you can't BAIT EM !!"
