I was married in a church. The church caught fire later that afternoon.

It doesn't count if you're the one setting the fire.

Being a pagan I plunder the churches first then burn them (and any monks).

An Engineer dies and goes to hell. He's hot and miserable, so he decides to take action. The A/C has been busted for a long time, so he fixes it. Things cool down quickly.

The moving walkway motor jammed, so he unjams it. People can get from place to place more easily.

The TV was grainy and unclear, so he fixes the connection to the Satellite dish and now they get hundreds of high def channels.

One day, God decides to look down on Hell to see how his grand design is working out and notices that everyone is happy and enjoying umbrella drinks. He asks the Devil what's going on?

The Devil replies, "Things are great down here since you sent us that engineer."

"What?? An engineer? I didn't send you one of those, that must have been a mistake. Send him back up right this minute."

The Devil responds, "No way! We are going to keep our engineer. We like this guy."

God demands, "If you don't send him to me immediately, I'll sue!"

The Devil laughs. "Where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"
Time and tide melt the snowman.

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.

In the Force Arena game, Krennic's Death Squad Leader spawns a pair of Death Troopers every so often. You always want to deploy the leader as far back as possible so he has more time to spawn troops as he walks to the battle area.

If it's really just lettuce it's scarcely worthy of being called a salad. Proper salads need only a hint of dressing because they're chock full of flavors.

Blackhawk's story reminds me of when I used to pick up trash bags full of slightly wilted lettuce from our local Burger Chef every few days to feed to our pet guinea pigs. Worst pets ever. All they did was foul their cage...probably because they lived on wilted lettuce. They did not live long, and I did not mourn them.

Not that Blackhawk's family were guinea pigs.

OK, that didn't go where I planned and everything I type just makes it worse. Abandon post! It's not even about sauce.

It should be more of an 'out of context' thread, but from a high enough level, it would be tough to tell the difference. Honestly, I don't expect this one to have legs.
Im pretty high and totally enjoy a good pair of legs.

I'm glad to be in a place in my life where I don't feel the need to cut coupons or worry about cheap/free fast food giveaways.

Mom used to carry calculator when we went grocery shopping to make sure we stayed within the budget. I don't even try to keep a running total in my head.
