Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Something only I may find funny,especially because it's at the expense of my wife, who everybody likes more than me anyway

We bought a white board to put "To Do" items on, because I'm stupid and forget things, and now that I'm not working, it's my job to take care of the little crap around the house. So Krys wrote something for me to do today. Here it is, verbatim:

"Put 3 tabs chlorine in pool and run."

I just thought that was hilarious. Will the pool explode when I put the chlorine in it? Does the chlorine turn into some sort of water-based chlorine monster that will eat me? I want to know!

By the way, she meant run the filter, for those of you scratching your puzzlers because you don't have pools. I just liked the wording.

Okay, carry on.

I laughed when I got to the punchline...because I certainly do not have a pool (hard to put one on a 15 sq ft porch), and I was indeed scratching my puzzler.

See, but that's the beauty of being married for almost 11 years--you knew exactly what I meant.

Besides, you always get offended (like I'm saying you are mentally deficient) when I give too much detail. I also ran out of room on the white board!

As I recall, doesn't the chlorine give off a potent smell when first dropped into the water?

Run. Just in case.

You should toss the tablets in grenade-style, like you're in some sort of WWII film. Then shout, "Take that, Jerry!" as you plug your ears.

After reading this note, I would probably already run! Damn, it is scary to be alive!

The chlorine tablets are pretty stinky even before you put them in the water. I don't like even touching them (which is why I usually make my pregnant wife do it - bwah-ha-ha-ha!).
