The Rockpile – 12-11-2013

Chuckie DeSmith made it to the top of the leader board last Monday night as DeSmith rolled the yearly single high score of 287, out bowling Jason Maes’ 279 game high. Great job, Chuckie!!!

Back When

• 1970 Song of the Day: “Endlessly” – Sonny James

• 1963 – The last American-made Studebaker was produced

• 1965 – “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, the first “Peanuts” TV special, debuted.

• 1979 – The eradication of the smallpox virus was certified, making smallpox the first and to date only human disease driven to extinction. (If you have a little scar on your upper arm, you had a small pox vaccination and are one of us).

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “How do you like the lolly….Pop!!!”  Bee Boop!

Frozen Crabs and the Blonde Flight Attendant

A lawyer boarded an airplane in New Orleans, with a box of frozen crabs, and asked the stewardess to take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew’s refrigerator. He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning in a very haughty manner that he was a lawyer and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.

Needless to say, she was very  annoyed by his behavior.

Shortly before landing in New York, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, “Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs in New Orleans, please raise your hand?”

Not one hand went up…so she took them home and ate them.

Two lessons here:

1) Lawyers aren’t as smart as they think they are.

2) Blondes aren’t as dumb as most folks think.
