Super duper size me- QUICK!

6.28.06, sitting at gate B20 in the DFW airport, awaiting a flight back to BWI:

Fat, middle-aged male-half of the tourist couple (FMAM-H): "Maybe we better eat--what time we get in tonight?"
Fat, middle-aged female-half of the tourist couple (FMAF-H): "We don't get there 'til 6:00. Yah, we better eat."
(FMAM-H): "Yup, we better eat, I guess."
(FMAF-H): "yah, ok." "Couple 'o cheeseburgers, fries and a coke?"
(FMAM-H): "Whut?"
(FMAF-H): "Couple 'o cheeseburgers, fries and a coke?"
(FMAM-H): "Yah, ok."

[He gives her some $$$ and she rumbles off, returning shortly with several overstuffed bags from the airport McDonald's. They settle in to their feast and are quiet for 30 seconds or so while, sucking down french fries]

(FMAF-H) & (FMAM-H): [Embarrassingly loud grunts of pleasure come from both as they continue to slurp and suck]

(FMAF-H): "God. Finally--REAL food! None o' that trail mix, granola stuff. That's all they had at their house!"
(FMAM-H): "Yah, I hate that stuff. Can't eat it. I was starvin'!"
(FMAF-H): "Yah, me too! Never could eat that trail mix stuff. "

(FMAF-H) & (FMAM-H): [continued slurps of contentment are heard as they each ponder the bliss of access, once again, to real food."]


So a Mexican, a Chinese Person, and an Indian Person walk into the House Office Building...

Congress member 1: "So are you with us on the H1, bill?"

Congress member 2: "Sure if you say it's good you know I'm with you. So, we are cuttin' back on these foreign workers…"

CM1: "No, no we're providing for more high-tech workers to help out all our companies."

CM2: "Bringing in more?"

CM1: "Not Mexicans, mostly Chinese and Indians."

CM2: "What are we doing to make sure they go back?"

CM1: "The visas only last three years, don't worry about that."

CM2: "Well, you know I support my former Chariman, we'll take a look at it."

Bum: Hey my man, can you do me a favor?
Guy: What?
Bum: You see my wife over there? (Points to a woman who's not with him). She's obviously pregnant (she wasn't really pregnant). If I give you my drivers license (takes out drivers license) will you watch her for a little bit while I go do some stuff?
**Guy hurries away.**

WT: No, you can see it from up here, really.
DCR/TF: Maybe you're thinking of the Statue of Freedom on top of the Capitol?

Cute and hung ... what a "package"!

Guy: So he was cute.
Girl: I thought you didn't like him.
Guy: I didn't say that.
Girl: You didn't like his hair. You didn't like his teeth. You said he looked 12. And he reminds you too much of your ex.
Guy: Well, okay. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't want to see him naked.
Girl: [pause]
Guy: Besides, he looks like he's hung like a horse.
Girl: [pause]

Don't call Jenny, call GW hospital!
