When lending a friend a DVD or CD, it is always best to make sure the disc is in it's case.

The "Dave" DVD was not in it's case. -10 pts <---That's for you "R"

Wearing a trash-bag poncho is actually worse than getting wet.

It's never a good idea to eat an egg-salad sandwich on public transportation.

Desperate housewives don't look like that.

You gotta know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em and when to stop quoting Kenny Rogers during poker games.

The house blend is always hotter than the flavored coffee.

Avoid any restaurant where the daily specials are displayed by way of plastic replicas.

A man should never own more than two pairs of convertible pants.

Flame decals do not fool passersby into thinking your car is "hot."

There is no shame in using Western utensils for Eastern cuisine.

After three drinks, before you yell, throw, or type anything, stop for a few seconds and think about just what it is you're up to.

Any medical condition is made less terrifying if you place "the ol' " before it: "the ol' cancer," "the ol' pneumonia," "the ol' herpes," "the ol' gall-bladder."

The same does not apply for shoes or shirts. Those stay on.

It is always better to be slightly overdressed than slightly underdressed.

What the hell happened to Sesame Street?

When you're sick and even the Price is Right is not playing, you know it's going to be one of those weeks.
