    I'm sorry, but I resemble that remark! Actually, I'm both types. I love crude as well as refined. FWIW, I have performed as a violinist and singer at the Royal Festival Hall in London... If that doesn't secure my bonafides as symphony/opera crowd, I don't know what does! However, I did have the honor of teaching the great violinist Isaac Stern how to dance the Twist! I guess you can say that I am "twisted"...

    FWIW, my sister was a protege of Stern's, and spent 20+ years as principal violist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London. Even so, she had to work a day job at BT to keep her kids in clothes and school! She is also a great fan of BH!

    For this Christmas my wife hinted she wanted something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.
    So, I bought her a bathroom scale.

    Then later. I was flipping through the TV channels.
    She asked me, "Whats on TV?"
    I said, "Dust".

    My mother in law is a little tweaked at me also.
    Back a few Christmas's ago I bought her a cemetery plot.
    Then the next year I did not get her anything.
    When she asked me why.
    I said, "Well, you did not use what I bought you for Christmas last year!"

    The doctors told me the twitching, jerking away in fear, and limp will go away in time.

    Two 90-year-old men, Moe and Joe, have been friends all of their lives. When it's clear that Joe is dying, Moe visits him everyday. One day, Moe says, "Joe, we both loved baseball all our lives and we played minor league ball together for so many years. Please do me one favor. When you get to Heaven, somehow, you must let me know if there's baseball there."
    Joe looks up at Moe from his death bed," Moe, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favor for you."
    Shortly after that, Joe passes on.

    At midnight, a couple of nights later, Moe is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him," Moe. Moe."
    "Who is it"? asks Moe, sitting up suddenly. "Who is it"?
    "Moe, it's me, Joe."
    "You're not Joe. Joe just died."
    "I'm telling you, it's me, Joe," insists the voice."
    "Joe! Where are you"?
    "In Heaven," replies Joe. "I have some really good news and a little bad news."

    "Tell me the good news first," says Moe.
    "The good news," Joe says "is that there's baseball in Heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before us are here, too. Better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always Spring time and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play baseball all we want and we never get tired."
    "That's fantastic," says Moe. "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So, what's the bad news"?
    "You're pitching Tuesday."

    I like that enough to try it on the wife if I didn't fear a good old back hand slap.
