    Hey now, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Comic readers! Let’s have some fun tonight at the expense of Catholics and lawyers. Sound like a plan? Alright then!The Pope and a lawyer find themselves together before the Pearly Gates. After a small amount of time was spent discussing their respective professions, St. Peter shows up to usher them to their new Heavenly station. After passing out wings, harps, halos and such, St. Pete decides to show them to their new lodgings. Only a brief flight from the Gates, Pete brings them down on the front lawn of a huge palatial estate with all sorts of lavish trappings. This, Pete announces, is where the lawyer will be spending eternity. “Cool!”, the Pope says to himself. “If he’s getting a place like this, I can hardly wait to see my digs!”. They take flight once again, and as Pete leads on, the landscape below begins to appear more and more mundane until they finally land on a street lined with faded brownstone houses. Pete indicates a third floor walk-up on the left as the Pope’s new domicile and turns to leave, wishing the pontiff his best. The Pope, in a mild state of astonishment, cries out, “Hey Pete! What’s the deal here? You put that lawyer in a beautiful estate home and I, the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church, end up in this dive?” St. Pete looks at the pontiff amusedly and replies,“Look here old fellow, this street is practically encrusted with spiritual leaders from many times and religions. We’re putting you here with them so you guys can get your dogma together. That other guy gets an estate, because he’s the first lawyer to ever make it up here.”BA DUMP BUMP and Silver, out! Mańana, Amigos.

    Casa De Fritos was sponsored by Frito Lays. I tend to think someone was snorting cheeto powder and it got all over the tortilla chips.

    That syrup is probably dissolving the plastic and not the stainless steal. Mmm liquid plastic!

    Let’s see If RBION goes better with Coca-Cola.

    A beautiful blonde walks into a casino and over to a soda machine and arrives there just before a business man who’s come to quench his thirst. She opens her purse and gets out a dollar for the machine, studies it , presses the Diet Coke selection , and out comes a Diet Coke , which she places on a counter by the machine.

    Then she reaches in her purse again and pulls out a 5 Dollar bill and inserts it in the machine. Studying the machine carefully, she presses the button for Coca-Cola Classic and out came a Coke Classic and 4 Dollars change.

    She takes a Dollar from the change and puts it in the machine, studies for a moment, and presses the Sprite button. Out comes a Sprite. As she sorts another Dollar from her change the businessman, who has been waiting patiently for several minutes, speaks up. “Excuse me miss, but are you done yet?” She looks at him and indignantly replies, “Well, Duh! I’m like, still winning!”

    I feel another joke coming on.

    A woman who drank 10 litres of Coca Cola every day has died.

    She ate a Mentos and they found her head 3 blocks away.

    Ah! Until next time.

    In addition to stainless steel syrup tanks, McDonald’s water filtration system is of the highest level, syrup is pre-chilled before placing it in the machine, machines are set for a syrup-to-water ratio that accounts for melting ice and filtered water is pre-chilled before going into the machine.

    Yep, I know about those stainless steel syrup containers. Served a four-year sentence at McD’s and we had a bunch of them in the back. And on certain days, they were used to block a few parking spaces because we’d be getting a truck delivery.

    A lot of snacks that are pieces of previous snacks are a marketing thing to sell stuff that used to be discarded. For example the latest is pretzel pieces.

    I remember drug store counters where they poured the Coke syrup then the seltzer water. If you asked nicely, sometimes you’d get a dollop more syrup.

    Speaking of McDonald’s.

    An elderly couple are at McDonald’s. They order one meal between the 2 of them and go and sit down.

    The guy in the booth next to them notices they’ve only got one meal and offers to buy them another one.

    The elderly man says “no thank you we share everything”.

    So the elderly man then cuts the burger in half and gives half to his wife. She starts to eat and the elderly man just sits there.

    The man in the booth looks over again and this time notices the elderly man isn’t eating yet. So he asks "why aren’t you eating as well?

    The elderly man replies:. “I’m waiting for the dentures”.

    Perhaps another?

    Last call.

    Three recent college graduates met in McDonald’s, and the engineering major said, “Did you see the new wind turbines going up on the east side of town? They had asked our class to run some stress studies during windstorms as an exercise”.

    “Yes”, the geology graduate said, “They also contacted us, about the bedrock depth for foundations”.

    The Liberal Arts major turned to him and said, “Do you want fries with that?”

    Until next time.

    Interesting fact about the cola syrup. But the feces used to make the hamburgers are still shipped by horse-drawn wagon.

    Huh. An internet search shows that tortilla chips were invented in the 1940s and Disneyland didn’t open until 1955. The decision to brand them as Doritos may have been attributed to Casa de Fritos.

    Years ago, ALL syrup came in stainless steel canisters. Then Bag-in-the-Box was invented about and most restaurants switched to this for ease of storage, changing, and disposal.

    Let me try oneMeet Walter Barnes

    All golfers should live so long as to become this kind of old man! Toward the end of the Sunday service, the Minister asked, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?” 80% held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one man, Walter Barnes. “Mr. Barnes, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?” “I don’t have any,” he replied gruffly.“Mr. Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you?”“Ninety-eight,” he replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands. “Oh, Mr. Barnes, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?” The old golfer tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said simply, “I outlived all them assholes.”

    When I was a kid, a friend and I hung out for a while at a food stand by the side of a highway. He had the syrup and the carbonated water both in metal containers, which he would then mix together. He let us sample both in their unmixed state. The syrup was very strong, and the carbonated water reminds me of what Alka-Seltzer tasted like…

    There is no way to tell the difference in Coke – it all tastes like…- how do you describe that peculiar taste. I only drink Pepsi in cola – and hardly any of that. Must not be a cola person.

    I actually prefer soda from a metal container over anything else, it’s why I prefer cans over bottles. I always wondered why I preferred the taste of the coke from McDonalds over any other fast food restaurant.

    Best coke mixture I had was at London Fish and Chips. Don’t know what happened to that place, or fish and chips in general.

    Boudreaux was walking down the street on his way to work and saw a parrot in a pet store. He stopped for a moment to admire the bird.The parrot looked at him and said, “Hey man, you are real ugly!”Boudreaux was furious and stormed past the store heading for work.On the way home, he saw the same parrot in the window. Seeing him, the parrot looked Boudreaux squarely in the eyes and said, “Hey man, you are real ugly!”Boudreaux’s anger turned to rage as he marched into the store to confront the owner.“Look!” shouted Boudreaux. “That dumb bird ya got there in the window done called me ugly two times! Ya don’t git him straight, I kin tell ya right now, I’m gunna sue da pants offa ya, kill dat bird, and use him for crab bait!”“I’m so sorry, sir,” replied the owner, trying to get Boudreaux to calm down. “I can assure you it won’t happen again.”Just to be sure, Boudreaux passed by the store on his way to work the next morning. The parrot looked at him and said, “Hey man…”“What?” asked Boudreaux.The parrot winked and said, “You know!”

    I remember that Doritos thing at the Casa de Fritos.

    My family lived in So. California and we went to Disneyland a lot of times.

    And visited Casa de Fritos every time.
