When you told me your pick up had some class I was thinking about something entirely different.

No, m'am, the ad had a slight misprint. It should have said,

"Extended cab pickup truck for sale. Used, but in chairy condition."

Yep, I got me a magnet from a 7 Tesla MRI and started a trucking company. Better than rope! Don't worry, your glasses are in there somewhere! And your phone. And your keys.

Bill, when I said I needed classroom supplies for Home Schooling in a Mobile Home Park, I didn't mean a mobile Mobile Home School... oh, never mind.

Ever since Bill was a kid, when Bill loses at musical chairs... he makes sure everybody loses.

I hate to sound culturally insensitive, but I see that truck roll through the alley every Tuesday, looking for more scrap metal to add to the pile.

"I'd like to call this meeting to order!"

"I've asked all the board members to arrive a little early this morning for the arrival of our new Chairman... I understand he comes highly qualified! His LinkedIn page was quite impressive..."

Wow, this picture just reminded me of one of my Teachers in Junior High and High school.

I had an industrial arts (Graphic Arts) teacher in School, that taught screen printing, Drafting, Photgraphy, ect... He was kinda a hippy, that chewed tobacco.

He had a old '47 Ford Pick-up truck.

And when we walked passed his truck, it had no seat... what it had instead was a rocking chair...

As a 14 year, that was the funniest thing we saw.

Hillbilly Jim started a bus service... and for some reason, Hillbilly Jim just couldn't figure out why it didn't go over too well.
