Saw this on FB. From Perpetual Kid. Not exactly a joke but a funny idea:

This weekend, you should try walking into a store all panicked and ask what year it is. When they respond with 2012, smile... start laughing uncontrollably and start screaming, "IT WORKED!!! IT WORKED!!!" If you can capture this on video, even better.

An old woman came into her doctor's office and confessed to an embarrassing problem. "I do that all the time, Doctor Johnson, but they're soundless, and they have no odor. In fact, since I've been here, I did it no less than twenty times. What can I do?"

"Here's a prescription, Mrs. Harris. Take these pills three times a day for seven days and come back and see me in a week."

Next week an upset Mrs. Harris marched into Dr. Johnson's office. "Doctor, I don't know what was in those pills, but the problem is worse! I'm doing it just as much, but now it smells terrible! What do you have to say for yourself?"

"Calm down, Mrs. Harris," said the doctor soothingly. "Now that we've fixed your sinuses, we'll work on your hearing!!!"

That reminds me of a coworker I had who complained all the time. He would use that old saying, the squeaky wheel always gets the grease? I got sick of it one day and told him that sometimes the squeaky wheel gets rePLACED. He got fired a week later... :D

Heard this one today.

A tough old cowboy from South Texas counseled his grandson

that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to

sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on his oatmeal every morning.

The grandson did this religiously to the age of 103 when he

died.

He left behind 14 children

30 grandchildren

45 great-grandchildren

25 great-great-grandchildren, and a

15-foot crater where the crematorium used to be.

GOOD: At Houma, a policeman had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but wasn't getting many. Then he discovered the problem--a 12-year-old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign, which read 'RADAR TRAP AHEAD.' The officer also found the boy had an accomplice who was down the road with a sign reading 'TIPS' and a bucket full of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!)

BETTER: A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated radar post in New Orleans. A $40 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40. The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs.

BEST: A young woman was pulled over for speeding. A Louisiana State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book. She said, "I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the State Trooper's Ball." He replied, "Louisiana State Troopers don't have balls." There was a moment of silence. He then closed his book, tipped his hat, got back in his patrol car and left.

It's a good thing it wasn't me driving that car when he said that.

I may not have known to leave well enough alone.

    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot   
    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
