  • "A cockroach can live for nine days without its head."

    Well. Move some items laying around your temporal lobe so you can store the info that a cockroach doesn't need its head to keep its personality.

    Long as its got its thorax chill bean.

  • The speed of the Cheetah reminds me of my 1st divorce.

    We were approaching our 10th anniversary.

    She came to me and said:

    Since we are making a lot of money now I would like something really nice for our anniversary.

    I asked what do you have in mind?

    She said something that goes from zero to 250 in under three seconds.

    I bought her a bathroom scale.

    The divorce was so costly that I had to throw in 1/4 of my temporal lobe just to silence her lawyer.

  • Sorry for the lack of clarity. Just I've noticed here on AWM solely, the comments generally, post within two days.

    Didn't mean to imply you're not being read, I've linked (guess) your stuff to over 40 individuals in eight countries on three continents. You're listed on the sidebar of six blogs I visit daily.

    One of those blogs receives on average, 640 hits/day.
