    Three men: a project manager, a software engineer, and a hardware engineer are helping out on a project. About midweek they decide to walk up and down the beach during their lunch hour. Halfway up the beach, they stumbled upon a lamp. As they rub the lamp a genie appears and says “Normally I would grant you three wishes, but since there are three of you, I will grant you each one wish.”
    The hardware engineer went first. “I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in St. Thomas with no money worries.” The genie granted him his wish and sent him on off to St. Thomas.

    The software engineer went next. “I would like to spend the rest of my life living on a huge yacht cruising the Mediterranean with no money worries.” The genie granted him his wish and sent him off to the Mediterranean.

    Last, but not least, it was the project manager’s turn. “And what would your wish be?” asked the genie.

    “I want them both back after lunch” replied the project manager.

    I skipped the last 30 or so comments after I started getty queazy (you people are _nasty_). After all, I am going to a Chinese place for lunch in 45 minutes.

    I think I’ll stay away from the Moo *Goo* Gai Pan.

  • danni

    Ramon, I like you already!
    And also: go back to bed, it’s too early to get up!

  • SweetSue

    Look everybody a two headed kitten named “deuce” which we all know should be spelled DOOCE!

  • lawbrat

    Ok, my 6 year old is home from school sick. He wanted to let his birds out of their cage. He’s watching a video, birds flying around. I hear a sound. A 6 year old boy says…OHHHHH… He got pooped on! on his cheek! Is it bad that Im cracking up over that?

  • Ramon

    Jillian: are we?

  • Henryk_

    mrtl…..noted! I am thinking of getting one going as well!

  • Torrie

    I just picked one of my own for you guys. It most definitely hit the mirror.

  • danni

    But Paul, I rember asking the same question once
    I don’t get it either, but it is really funny if people guess wrong
    ‘First???’ and then they’re fifth!

  • Henryk_

    a Readers Digest version!

  • the niffer

    No need to apologize, Emily. There is no such thing as prying here.

    Nilbo – I’m sorry to waste your diet Pepsi. My monkey, on the other hand, is not.

  • falimako

    I am watching the amazing race here in Australia, and some guy just vomited into his bowl and now he has to EAT IT! I feel so sick.

  • mrtl

    Henryk_, Dooce has probably been the reason many people have blogs. I know I was inspired to start one having seen hers.

  • Emily in China

    Sorry. Didn’t mean to pry. I was just confused.

  • Henryk_

    I hope he is made to eat it!

  • Girl.A

    I was inspired by Dooce to lance my sister.

    Alas, she runs too fast.

  • mrtl

    the niffer – others have picked up on it. it’s too late.

  • Wicked H

    That is one talented camera. I need to save up for one of those!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Former Congressman’s way of getting to know his constituants. Priceless!!

  • Henryk_

    15 minutes away!! I have to drive 2 hours to get to our Hunter Valley!

  • Circus Kelli

    B4E #111: This one time, at bible camp…

  • danni

    I say that makes it 1-0 for Susie
    Sorry Paul!

  • the mighty jimbo

    hey, i never said i didn’t drink the kool-aid.

  • Nilbo

    niffer – “Ones that hit the mirror” made me spit Diet Pepsi all over my keyboard. I hold you and your monkey personally responsible.

  • louiemariz

    Hard as a rock!!!!!!!
    definitely a freshly packed brick wall!!!! want to have a bite?

  • the niffer

    Peter #508 – brilliant.

  • the niffer

    Emily – my monkey isn’t Brazilian. Just a neatly trimmed Canadian.

  • Ramon

    Danni: Antwerp…. Bollekes, vogeltjesmarkt, diamonds, industry, the economic/industrial motor of Flanders… and that all in the friendliest country of Europe.

    (I’m a Dutch-Limburger banned to Boston, MA and that’s why it’s rather remarkable if I actually make it onto the top-100!)

  • the niffer

    No worries Henryk_, sometimes it’s better to be seen and not heard.

  • Torrie


  • Susie

    Aw, Paul. Don’t be sad. Here, have some cake.

  • a.l.

    i’m guessing it’s deloitte. the company where mr. flamer works, that is. that’s just my guess though

  • the niffer

    Sorry Mrtl. I shall quit post haste with the monkey talk.

  • Susie

    Looked at it, thought, brick wall. Nice, solid picture, dooce. Then ya’ll had to start talking about cake. Talking about some cake at 6:49 EST. If that’s a cake, it’s a tall, moist, excessively frosted, delicious cake. How am I supposed to eat Special K for breakfast now? Thanks, you guys.

  • the niffer

    CM’s got a point, Jimbo. You DID post from Antarctica; the sign of a true elder that never loses touch with his flock.

    I’m loving it…Pickers Unite: The only requirement is that you love to pick and derive enjoyment when you find a really big one and he says ‘ok honey, make it quick’

  • Paul

    This will probably be my only ever post here, as the photos themselves don’t really seem to invite comment.

    But what, exactly, is this obsession with being first poster, or second, or even, gasp, top one-hundred?

    Seems kind of sad, really…

  • Henryk_

    sorry Niff, I didn’s see you sitting there!

  • Torrie

    Cat and Lawbrat, maybe we should start “Pickers Anonymus”. Although, I don’t really WANT to be cured so maybe it should be
    “Pickers Unite” ?

  • Lisa S

    brick and mortar? very cool. my accidental photos always come out just black.

  • Graygirl

    Oh Merdog….deprived! (depraved???) How can you not drink wine every day? Of course I am in Northern CA, a mere 15 minutes from the wine country so I am spoiled! In fact am headed up to one of my favorite winerys this weekend.

  • Torrie

    Niffer, I too thought of Dooce whilst trimming my monkey. She must be proud to know that people think of her when they are trimming their monkeys or are constipated.

  • Anna

    I hope thats not cake. Haha. I wouldn’t eat it.
    Looks like someone did a not so great grouting job on a wall.
    No matter, cake or wall, it’s marvelous. Wonderful shot.

  • Henryk_

    ….and the silence was deafening!!!
