Work never hurt anyone. It's the lack of it that destroys people.

Today we have a cute video about one of our favorite “adult beverages.” Short, sweet, and eminently chuckle-worthy.

This Week with the Chicowitz

Under the Knife – Part 3

I would like to tell you that while I was out I heard solo performances by John Lennon, Jim Croce, Otis Redding and Karen Carpenter. But again, if I did, I have no recollection. It is all a complete blank; it was as if no time had passed at all.

A moment of levity in the recovery room. I have no recollection of this either.

My friend in the recovery room told me that, in order to break the ice and see how alert I was, one of the nurses asked me to describe my last three sexual experiences. Well, it was like one of those “When E. F. Hutton talks.....” moments. I am told I gave a her a confused look and replied, “I’m sorry; there have not been that many.”

Ice broken.

A visitor to BBHQ suggested that some nurses take advantage of the situation and observe the patient’s crown jewels while they are under. Remember the scene in The Sting when Johnny Hooker, played by Robert Redford, sticks a piece of paper in the door jam at his apartment so he could tell if anyone had broken in?

Well, I can tell you that my privates remained... private, all through the surgery. Of that much, I am sure.

I Remember... October 19, 1964-1965

Remember when Playboy magazine was scandalous... and yet classy? During the 60s, they tried to sneak in the playboy logo in every cover photo. See it here? It's hidden in plain sight.

Look close. See it here?

It's the end of an era. Next year, Playboy will fold up the centerfold, and begin competing with the likes of GQ and People magazines.

Ah, the times, they are a-changin.'

Coming next Monday -- the terrifically politically incorrect cartoon:

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:

1. First, our current events question:
In Washington, the year ends on September 30. So, 2015 is history. About what was the federal deficit for 2015?
    225 billion
    435 billion
    665 billion
    985 billion
    2.95

2. From a Johnny Cash favorite:

 
My daddy left home when I was three;
And he didn't leave much to ma and me;
Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid.
But the meanest thing that he ever did;
Was before he left, he went and named me .

3. "This is the police. you are surrounded. give yourself up. This is the police. Give yourself up. You are surrounded."
From our Places and Locales collection, fill in the missing word from this 1970, top-10 hit:
      wants me,
     but I can't go back there.

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.

Members can play all of our trivia games in The BBHQ Trivia Library.

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

A golfer is thrashing through the bushes, looking for a lost ball.

An old lady watches him as she sits on a nearby bench knitting.

After half an hour the golfer is just about to give up, when the old lady says, "Excuse me. But is it against the rules if I tell you where it is?"


Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
