Funky Foto Contest Week 29

All this financial stuff has got me feeling sort of “walled” in lately…thus this picture seems perfect to me. The obvious question? Where is this colorful wall? This weeks winner receives two tickets to see the movie Wall-E…just kidding! Actually, the winner gets a $30.00 gift certificate to My Big Fat Greek restaurtant in Edgewater Place. All the rules of the road are available to view on the left hand margin as well as on the bar above. Last week we had some pretty decent jokes here, good job you guys! Congress? Greek Restaurants? Al Davis? You name the topic. I’ll, most likely, publish those right away along with any other snappy retorts and all wrong answers. Publication of the correct answers will be on Monday morning. Have fun folks, and have a great weekend!

  6. So Al Davis had put together the perfect Raiders team for ’98. The only thing he was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges, and even the high schools, and he couldn’t find a ringer quarterback that would ensure a SuperBowl win. Then one night, watching CNN, he saw a war zone in Bosnia. In the background, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a young Bosnian soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th story window 200 yards away, ka-boom! He threw another hand grenade into a group of about 10 soldiers a good 110 yards away-ka-blooey! A car passes going 90 miles an hour-bulls-eye! Right into the barely open window. “I’ve got to get this guy,” Al says to himself. “He has the perfect arm!” So he brings him to the states and teaches him the great game of football. Predictably, the young man breaks all the NFL records for completed passes, and the Raiders go on to win the SuperBowl. The young Bosnian is lionized as the Great Hero of SuperBowl XXXI, and when Al asks him what he wants, all the young man wants to do is to call his mother. “Mom,” the young man says into the receiver, “I just won the SuperBowl.” “I don’t want to talk to you,” the old woman says. “You deserted us. You’re not my son.” “I don’t think you understand, mother” the young man pleads. “I just won the greatest sporting event in the world. I’m in the middle of thousands of adoring fans.” “No, let me tell you,” the mother implores. “At this very moment, there are gun shots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lifes last week, and this week your sister was raped in broad daylight….” I’ll never forgive you for making us move to Oakland.

  7. A man walked into an Oakland bar with a dachshund under his arm. The dog was wearing an Oakland Raiders jersey and helmet, and was festooned with Raiders pom-poms.

    The bartender said, “Hey! No pets are allowed in here! You’ll have to leave!”

    The guy begged him: “Look, I’m desperate. We’re both big fans, the TV is broken, and this is the only place around where we can see the game!”

    After securing a promise that the dog will behave, and warning him that he and the dog will be thrown out if there’s any trouble, the bartender relented and allowed them to stay in the bar and watch the game.

    The big game began with the Raiders receiving the kickoff. They marched down the field, got stopped at about the 30, and kicked a field goal.

    With that the dog jumped up on the bar, and began walking up and down the bar giving high-fives to everyone.

    The bartender said, “Wow, that is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen! What does the dog do when the Raiders score a touchdown?”

    The owner replied, “I don’t know, I’ve only had him for 4 years.”

  8. Jim Minkey says:

  15. Jim Minkey says:

    These are good too! I heard this one today:

    The number of home runs per game in the Major Leagues dropped to a 15-year low. As a result, the US government is bailing out BALCO.
