So my wife and I just had our 5th child. (there's a joke in that alone)  She was nearly 2 weeks late when she finally went into labor.  The day before we had the baby, she had a doctor's appointment.  The doctor informed us that the office policy is to not let a pregnancy go past 42 weeks.  In spite of our protests about wanting it to occur naturally, they insisted and scheduled an induction 2 days later.  As the doctor left the room, I said "This is just forced induction!"

True story:

When I was growing up, 1 of my siblings told my dad that all their friends get an allowance, and ask him "why don't we?"

He responded with "Some kids you have to pay to be good, but you kids are good for nothing."

"If you throw a cat in the trunk, close the decklid. and it's dead the next morning, the trunk was sealed up good."

We tried it on the Viper, and when we came back the next day, the cat was gone.

And another one from those days:

"What do a Chrysler B-van and a Jehova's Witness have in common?"

"You can't slam the door on either one of them!"

(The van's sliding door was notorious for binding or falling off the tracks.)

I worked as a shop foreman for MB when they owned Chrysler and used a variation of this same joke (the cat was alive but unconscious). :)

I'll readily admit to being a prude when it comes to language that I consider less than erudite ... ;)

 

I know that some seem to revel in the idea that one particular word can constitute up to half of the content of the average conversation, but I'm not one of them!

when the mood strikes, I can almost attain this level.... I did something like this when I put in a tankless hot water heater.  I was a bit put off when the heater control board died just out of warranty.  That was my first experience with board component replacement.  It had a blown electrolytic cap and I replaced it but failed to use the correct temp range and it failed again later and took out more stuff so I got fed up and junked it and thus junked my copper work lol.

Reminds me of when a customer asked me to do a "nice" job wiring up a '34 Ford hot rod; should have taken a picture of the final product but this is a simpler version:

I hate troubleshooting cars that somebody wired using one 500 foot spool of wire because they didn't want to spend money on different colours:
