Not only that, they're not new or an invention. In most houses, they're called blankets and if you're too stupid to operate a blanket, you deserve to be cold.....and that's five !

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A Polish man was walking down the street, carrying a brown paper bag. He ran into one of his friends, who asked, "Hey! What do you have in the bag?" The man tells his friend that he has some fish in the bag.
His friend says, "Well, I'll make you a bet. If I can guess how many fish you have in the bag, you'll have to give me one." The man says, "I'll go you one better. If you tell me how many fish I have in this bag, I'll give you both of them."
Three guys that all worked bulding high rise buildings sat down to lunch one day. The first one opens his lunch and says, "Tuna fish, tuna fish, I hate tuna fish. If I get tuna fish one more time I'm jumping." The other two guys open their lunches and say the same thing.
The next day the first guy opens his lunch and says, "Ah, ham and cheese." The next two open their lunches and say, "Tuna fish, tuna fish, I hate tunafish. If I get tuna fish one more time I'm going to jump."
The third day the first two guys open their lunches and both got their favorite sandwiches. The third guy opens his lunch and says, "Tuna fish, tuna fish, I hate tuna fish. All right, that's it. I'm jumping." So he goes to the edge and jumps off.
The other two look on not believing what just happened. After a while, the first guy says, "Gee, that's sad. He actually jumped." The second guy says, "Yeah and the worst part is that he packs his own lunch."
That's it for today, my little chicklets. Remember, love is like a long joke where the punchline doesn't make any sense.
