COVID Humor in times of covid (Round 4)

A man walks into a covid responsible bar. Perfect he thinks...only me and the barman.
He orders a drink and sits down by himself at a table. While he is waiting he hears a voice
"Hey...I like your shoes".
Looking round he cant see anyone near him then he hears..
"Pstttt...I like your tie too"
When the barman arrives with his drink he mentions to the barman that he is hearing a voice and yet there is no one there. The barman replies ...
" Dont worry sir, that's the peanuts...they are complimentary"
😄😄😄 I am laughing because that is so corny!

Oh good! Peanuts are not only covid free, but complimentary, and complimentary as well...it's a win win win. Now what is the address of that bar?

I wouldn't be too sure of this, as you might hear the doorbell and get up to answer before you remembered. So long as you haven't concluded that pants are superfluous.

Based upon a few aforementioned posts we don’t want the pants super-fluid either.

That's how my brain feels these days - stuck at X, with no sense of where I am in the day, the week, the month...??? Just free-floating 'for no apparent reason.' The Camino Forum keeps me 'anchored' as much or more than anything else.
Me too, Marylynn! I cling to the forum and hope for better non-covid days ahead!

My friend in Sweden sent me this one.
There are many uses for the face mask But this is a new one for me—the world has truly gone to hell in a hand basket but hey to each his own 😛

Over the Covid months, I have developed a relationship with this little spider who lives in my bathroom. Every now and again he emerges from his hidey-hole below the door jamb - which doesn’t quite fit flush with the floor - and waits for me. When I come by, I slap my foot down on the floor next to him and he scurries back to his hidey-hole. Later, when he feels playful again, he emerges once more, waits for me and we play the game all over again. I don’t have a name for him; he’s just my “little spidey.”

Awww, a pet spider...how cute! You could name him Covey. I think he runs away to keep his "distance".

I really like these ‘multiple usage’ solutions: when going to the sauna you can use it as a face mask.

Or, when the situation calls for it, give it to someone who has forgotten his.

Meanwhile elsewhere :

For Sale: Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.
Meanwhile continuing elsewhere:

There’s a plane going down over the desert with only 3 parachutes on board. There are four people onboard, the smartest man in the world, the best doctor in the world, an old priest, and a young nerd. The doctor says, “People need me for my medical skills.” grabs the first parachute pack, and jumps. The smartest man in the world says, “People need me for my intelligence.” grabs a pack, and jumps. The old priest says, “I have lived a long and happy life. You take the last chute.” The nerd says, “Don’t worry. There are enough chutes for the both of us. The smartest man in the world just grabbed my backpack.”

Meanwhile somewhere in the (not so distant?) future a man walks into a brain store to purchase a new brain for implantation. As he scans the department for ‘exceptional brains’ where brains from the biggest scientists, philosophers, poets, etc. are displayed –all quite pricy of course- he spots one which is excessively expensive which had belonged to the former prime minister. He asks the store attendant, “Why is this particular brain so much more expensive than the others” and gets the reply: “Well, it is all unused” 😁

The prime minister of which country?🤔

A late bloomer maybe?
Yes, first time around I spent my time down at the pub, playing Poker or demonstrating against the Vietnam war and as a result I never graduated.

It probably also didn't help that at that time I thought I was going to be an Accountant but after finding myself falling asleep at my desk with boredom I discovered Computing and in those days there wasn't a Computing based degree.

My late bloomer stint is a whole other story that is probably best shared over a good Spanish Vino Tinto or even a good Ozzie Shiraz.

My older brother studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Waterloo in the 1960's. How old are you?
Clearly Canada and/or Waterloo was way out in front of NZ in this area although it was probably possible to do some sort of Maths and Computer Science degree in NZ at that time but the Computer Science part would have been much more focused on improving algorithms such as sorting and searching.

My computing training during the early 70's was more directed at business computing and data structures. University degrees in these areas came in much later and in some NZ universities there was even competition between the Computer Science faction who would typically reside within the School of Mathematics and the Business Computing faction who often were within the School of Business.

Eventually both factions came closer together although there is still some tension between the two.

My comment about the the Vietnam war demonstrations while at Uni should have given my age (era) away although, perhaps, some older people were also demonstrating 😁.
