Don't forget the props - lifting is what Merlins are for.

Friday approacheth

Posted by Gene Rankin <gene.rankin-at-gmail.com> on 31 August 2011 | 0 Comments

A husband walks into Victoria=E2=80=99s Secret to purchase a sheer negligee=
for
his wife. He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500
in price -- the more sheer, the higher the price.

He opts for the sheerest item, pays the $500, and takes it home.

He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on, and
model it for him.

Upstairs, the wife thinks (she's no dummy), "I have an idea ... it's so
sheer that it might as well be nothing. I won't put it on, I'll do the
modeling naked, return it tomorrow, and keep the $500 refund for
myself."

She appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose.

The husband says, "Good Grief! You'd think for $500, they'd at least
iron it!"

He never heard the shot.

Funeral is on Thursday at Noon.

What's wrong with spruce? De Havilland Mosquitoes were practically
made of the stuff and they sounded fabulous ;)

I'll buy the "gorgeous looks", but "gorgeous tone"? Not with all that
spruce in the middle!
