The building across the street from my office is now going to be a medical marijuana dispensary. Grand opening on Friday! This should create some interesting traffic.

At the Avs game the other night, a guy behind me was explaining to his even dumber friends about throwing your hat on the ice for a hat trick (two Avs players had two goals in that game, so it was looking like a possibility). Then he added this gem:

"The Original Eight teams throw an octopus on the ice. The eight legs represent the Original Eight teams."

:facepalm: :moran:

Jeebus, I thought in Colorado they had a decent amount of sense regarding hockey tradition. It's not like it's Tampa Bay or Dallas or San Jose. It actually snows in Colorado more than once every 30 years.

Hell, that still makes him smarter then 9 out 10 people I try talking hockey to around here (St. Louis metro area, not LGB)

I mean, he understands a hat trick, and knows there were an original even number of teams.

I love retarded disclaimers you see on instruction sheets. The funny thing is, you know someone did it before it was ever included.

I'm currently involved in exchanging an electric pressure washer under warranty and apparently the company's policy is to cut the power the cord off and send that back and just throw the unit away.

"BEFORE CUTTING THE CORD FROM YOUR MACHINE, MAKE SURE THAT IT IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE POWER OUTLET!"

:lol:

Phew, I almost got fried had it not been for that common sense warning.

[After a typical ad for a burger from McDonald's]

"The Big'N Tasty is food. Eating too much food will cause you to gain weight. If you gain too much weight, you will get fat. The Big'N Tasty is not a doorstop. The Big'N Tasty should never be used as a substitute for a responsible babysitter. The Big'N Tasty..."

Skit from SNL a few years back. Awesome.
