About Perry's brain freeze" Where are all the Aggie jokes?
one man's opinion...

Posted on 11/10/2011 6:26:45 AM PST by ken5050

I feel for Rick Perry. I really do. I've had the occasional "senior moment" and I thought he handled it well, with grace. But the MSM will pile on. In skimming the threads and stories about the incident, I was surprised that there were NO Aggie jokes..


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Humor
KEYWORDS: perry; rino
The Gov's a PROUD TAMU alum. So, to lighten up the day, let's start posting those great Aggie jokes:

Q: How do you confuse an Aggie?
A: Ask him to alphbetize a bag of M&Ms

I heard the entire Aggie ice hockey team drowned in spring practice.

Ouch....

Two Aggies were framing a house. One Aggie threw every other nail on the ground as he hammered.

The other Aggie asked, “Why are you throwing those nails on the ground?”

The first Aggie replied, “They’re pointed in the wrong direction.”

“Idiot!”, said the second Aggie, “You don’t need to do that.”

“Why not?”

“Because”, said the second Aggie, “you can use those nails on the other side of the house.”

Perry didn’t do so hot at A&M so the jokes just aren’t as funny.

"Where are all the Aggie jokes?"

Aren't they all in College Station like they usually are?

No need to make jokes about Perry last night. That was enough of a joke all self-contained and all by itself.

Country going to complete crap and we have this endless procession of IDIOTS.

Actually, they had to shut down the A&M library. Someone forgot to return the book.

The Wall Street Journal named Texas A&M
University 2nd in the nation among all
universities, public and private, in a survey
of top U.S. corporations, non-profits and
government agencies, based on graduates who
recruiters prefer to hire.

Thanks and gig’em.

I felt for the guy too.

I’m not a backer of Perry and I don’t think much of his debating skills, but that vapor-lock he had when trying to name that third government agency simply happens sometimes. He probably got distracted at the instant before he was to say “Department of Energy” and simply got thrown off track. There are other reasons not to back the guy, but this, IMO, isn’t one of them. Actually, up until that moment, he seemed to be doing fairly well in comparison to past debates.

The main reason Texas A&M is mocked is because it is an outstanding public university with a largely conservative student body. It is also one of the few universities in the nation where a conservative professor can actually be taken seriously.

I assume most of you that relish the opportunity to mock Texas A&M are individuals who either never attended college, or attended another school... but never the less, love to associate yourselves with our state’s famous island of liberalism and sexual deviance, The University of Texas. I know that none of you actually attended t.u., because if you had you would be over at The Daily Kos or The Democratic Underground.

Fine. Continue to mock away at the one public university we conservatives can claim.

For the record, just trying for a little levity from all the Penn State revelations.

I like Perry, and don't think this is such a big deal..heck..it may get him the "senior" vote.

TAMU is a great institution...both athletics and academics..

I've been there twice in my lifetime...

First time . Christmas 1964...I played freshman BB at NYU, and we were invited down for a holiday tourney. It was my first intro to "Big Hair" and GRITS ( girls raised in the south) 1987...football game...think it was against Rice?..stadium is amazing...and the Corps of Cadets..the 12th man..is UNREAL. You have much to be proud of in your alma mater..

Just friendly Aggie jokes. No harm intended. It is a great school, as are others in the state.

What do fellow employees call an Aggie?

“Boss”

That is a response from an Aggie I know well.

I know someone who followed his Ph.D. adviser to A&M to get his nuclear engineering degree. You know the place has to be good if Northeast liberals will go and live there for a year to be part of it.

All in good fun, but keep in mind that you’re mocking the most military-friendly public university in the country.

Aggie jokes are repackaged ethnic jokes. Just as funny when you substitute “Jew”, “Pole”, “Mick”, or whatever.

Relax; it's all in fun....

I would do much worse than Perry if I was on that stage. I can't remember where I put my cell phone half the time.
