No, that's putt-putt.

But I wonder what George meant by poking fun at your height.  How does one go short, anyway.

In case some aren't familiar with this, it is a stock-trading term.  There are puts and calls.  When you write a put you are betting that the price of the stock will fall by a certain date and write a contract to sell (or put) a block of shares at a particular price on that date.  If you think the price will fall, you can "go short" or write a contract to sell what you don't have with the idea of purchasing the stock on that date at a reduced price to sell at the agreed on price.  You can lose your shirt doing that (maybe even your pants).

I've often thought my broker was out golfing when he should've been making us money. Maybe that's why the stock market crashed? All those putts?

Try to stay on track, George! Stick out tongue

A Caveman shouldn't need those anyway.

This kind of talk bugs me. Maybe I should start a collection. It looks like Logos is:

I think you mean snowshoes.  A Caveman shouldn't need snowshoes.  Of course, he shouldn't need puts and calls, either.  Especially the females.  Bad label: call girls.

So maybe you know those famous Norwegians from Minnesota Ollie and Lena. If you don't want them to be Norwegians, if that offends you, then they are Hittites from Minnesota, named Ollie and Lena.

Poor Ollie. His Lena died, don't ya know. So he calls the mortuary, "Yah," he says, "my Lena she died."

"Sorry to hear that Ollie."

"Yeah, she died. Can ya come and pick her up?"

"You betcha, Ollie," says the mortician, "where do you live?"

"Over on Eucalyptus," Ollie replies.

"Okay," says the mortician. "How do you spell it?"

There is a moment of silence on the phone. Finally Ollie says "How 'bout I drag her over to Oak and you pick her up there?"

You burn perfectly good oak??? I much prefer leaving my oak cants to spalt. Thereafter, I mount a hunk of it on one of my stable of wood lathes, turning off something totally impractical and "artistic" [allegedly]. However, I can recall, albeit only quite vaguely, the end result of piece or two - or ... ahem ... twenty or thirty or so, one loses count over the years, mind you   - ultimately finding its way into the tinderbox.

What kind of raid are you talking about?  An air raid? A can of raid? A raid HDD?

I know some people are known for sowing their wild oaks.

 

I prefer the oaks that you sprinkle brown sugar on.  I do not know how they get the acorns so flattened and small.....

I'm so glad I don't have to read this whole thread to post on it.  What a week it's been!  Oh, you mean another one just started? 

 

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.
