****The Official Friday Silliness Thread****
420 ^ | April 20, 2007

Posted on 04/20/2007 5:23:17 AM PDT by Lucky9teen

420

Claim:   The term '420' entered drug parlance as a term signifying the time to light up a joint.

Status:   True.  



Origins:   Odd terms sneak into our language every now and then, and this is one of the oddest. Everyone who considers himself in the know about the drug subculture has heard that '420' has something to do with illegal drug use, but when you press them, they never seem to know why, or even what the term supposedly signifies.





I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?

~ Willie Nelson

What about 404? 404 is the number assigned to the error message by MS Internet Explorer for “File Not Found.” It has entered the modern language as slang for “clueless.” As in, “That new intern in accounting is 404.”

Mac the sailor docked at New York after a frustrating three-month voyage. Unfortunately he'd lost most of his pay playing poker on board ship, so when he eventually found a lady of the night all he could offer her was 50 cents and a pair of sneakers from Singapore. She refused with disdain.

He wandered around in search of a more accommodating girl, but was refused time and time again. Eventually he found a more sympathetic lady who told him that although she could not possibly accept his offer herself, he could try Mabel down the road. But she warned him not to expect too much as Mabel was very unresponsive and would probably just lie there passively.

He found Mabel, and as times were hard she reluctantly agreed to accept the 50 cents and the pair of sneakers for her services, but told him not to expect any kind of response from her. Mac began the amorous act and after a few minutes was pleased to find an arm coming around his back. This was followed shortly after by a leg curling around his rear.

Mac, who had always fancied himself a bit of a Romeo, gasped, "I knew you wouldn't be able to resist my charms."

"Don't worry about me, love," answered Mabel, "I'm just trying on them sneakers."

A 2006 study by Texas A&M University found that the average American walks about 900 miles per year.

Another study by the American Beer Institute found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.

That means, on average, Americans get approximately 41 miles per gallon - not bad!

Should Marijuana Be Legalized?

[ ] Yes
[ ] No
[ ] Undecided
[ ] Pass the Doritos
[ ] What legal eyes are you talkin' about?
[ ] Do you ever change the water in that thing?
[ ] This is such an existential question - but now is the time for achieving a higher plane of consciousness that we all may partake of the spirit and ... pffffffff..... become one with the universe....
[ ] Lookit that Volkswagen, man!

Because I'm a man , when I lock my keys in the car, I will fiddle with a coat hanger long after hypothermia has set in. Calling AAA is not an option. I will win.



___________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man , when the car isn't running very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I'm looking at. If another man shows up, one of us will say to the other, "I used to be able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and everything, I wouldn't know where to start." We will then drink a couple of beers and break wind, as a form of holy communion.



____________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan. You're a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you, this is no problem.


__________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, like milk or bread. I cannot be expected to find exotic items like "cumin" or "tofu." For all I know, these are the same thing.



__________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, when one of our appliances stops working, I will insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that this will just cost me twice as much once the repair person gets here and has to put it back together.



___________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, I must hold the television remote control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it, though one time I was able to survive by holding a calculator instead (applies to engineers only)


__________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, there is no need to ask me what I'm thinking about. The true answer is always either sex, cars, sex, sports or sex. I have to make up something else when you ask, so just don't ask.


___________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, you don't have to ask me if I liked the movie. Chances are, if you're crying at the end of it, I didn't . . . and if you are feeling amorous afterwards . . then I will certainly at least remember the name and recommend it to others.


__________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, I think what you're wearing is fine. I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too. Either pair of shoes is fine, with the belt or without it, looks fine. It does not make your ass look too big. It was the pasta and potatoes and margaritas that did that. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go now?



___________________________________________________________________



Because I'm a man, and this is, after all, the year
2007, I will share equally in the housework. You just do the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, the vacuuming, and the dishes, and I'll do the rest. Like wandering around in the garden with a beer, wondering what to do.



___________________________________________________________________



This has been a public service message for women to better understand men.

I know, thats pretty fancy crib.
I had a house like that when I first went out into the world.

I installed central heat and air. Yep, a kerosene heater and a fan in the CENTER of the room.

Yes! The government could regulate it like tobacco and tax the daylights out of it. Users would be assured of quality and that the product free of contaminates. It would be available for those who need it medically. Best part is, that once pot is legalized with will lose some of the glamour.
Legalization would also put dealers out of business and reduce crime.

This makes too much sense. The government would never go for it.

And it will also make the next Pink Floyd reunion a success.

TOP 8 REASONS WHY WEED SHOULD BE LEGAL

8. So I can have a steady source of smoke

7. So I can have a steady source of income

6. So we can mash it into pudding and give it to whiny babies to put their annoying asses to sleep

5. So I don’t feel so guilty because I wouldn’t be funding terrorists (or would I? Stop Capitalism, Americans…the global economy will be the death of us all!! Burn down Starbucks, grow your own coffee beans!!)

4. Hundreds of thousands of prisoners would be set free thereby saving millions in state and federal tax dollars that could be used to fund government grown marijuana projects or breast cancer research

3. So I don’t have to light my pubic hair to cloak the smell from my neighbors

2. To make Sheena more interesting

1. So all the weed dealers start selling cocaine thus increasing the supply and lowering the price…good yao can be hard to find and expensive, G!

" But she warned him not to expect too much as Mabel was very unresponsive and would probably just lie there passively."

Alternate ending:

'So he finds Mabel and tells her all he has is fifty-cents. She quickly replies, 'Not to worry! I have change.'

A blond called her boy friend and said, “Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and can’t figure it out or how to get it started.”

Her boyfriend asked, “What is it supposed to be when it’s finished?”

The blond said, “According to the picture on the box, its a tiger.”

Her boyfriend decided to go over and help with the puzzle. She let him in and showed him where she had the puzzle spread all over the table.

He studied the pieces for a moment, then looked at the box, then turned to her and said, “First of all, no matter what we do, were not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger.

He took her hand and said, “Second,I want you to relax. Lets have a nice cup of hot chocolate and then…” He sighed…

“Let’s put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box.”
