R.I.P  Bob Dole

 

In his first campaign for the presidency, in 1980, Mr. Dole joined the pile-on against President Jimmy Carter.

“I once called Carter a chicken-fried McGovern,” Mr. Dole said, referring to the former Democratic nominee George McGovern. “And I take that back because I’ve come to respect McGovern.”

Much like Mr. McGovern’s 1972 general election campaign, Mr. Dole’s 1980 primary campaign crashed and burned. He won just 607 votes in New Hampshire.

The next day, he “slept like a baby,” Mr. Dole said afterward.

“Every two hours I woke up and cried.”

After Mr. Leno mentioned research showing that Viagra might cause blindness in rare cases, Mr. Dole emerged to roars of laughter from the audience.

“That’s a lot of rubbish, Jay,” he said. “I hate to see this misinformation being spread. I know a little about Viagra, Bob Dole knows a little about Viagra, and my vision is perfect. It’s 20/20.

“And,” he said, pointing to Mr. Leno’s band leader, “you ought to know better, Jay Leno.”

That Joke
The words are famous and supposedly came out in a verbal duel between Lady Astor (Britain’s first active woman MP) and, from a different wing of the Conservative party, Winston Churchill.

 

Lady Astor: ‘If I were your wife I would put poison in your coffee.’

 

Churchill: ‘Nancy, if I were your husband I would drink it.’

I was trying to remember who the woman was!

  • Before I criticize a man, I like to walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when I do criticize him, I'm a mile away and I have his shoes.
  • Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?
  • My wife told me to stop impersonating a flamingo. I had to put my foot down. 
  • I went to buy some camo pants but couldn’t find any.

I'm your huckleberry.

Urban Dictionary

"A man; specif., the exact kind of man needed for a particular purpose. : "Well, I'm your huckleberry, Mr. Haney."  

The "Historical Dictionary of American Slang" which is a multivolume work, has about a third of a column of citations documenting this meaning all through the latter 19th century.

So "I'm your huckleberry" means "I'm just the man you're looking for!"

A collection of  snappy comebacks

 

A co-worker just won’t leave you alone? Try this: “Sure, I’d love to help you out…now, which way did you come in?”

 

Man: “Would you like to go back to my place or yours?”
You: “Well, I don’t know. Can 2 people fit under a rock?”

 

Man: “Say, haven’t we met before?”
You: “Yes, I’m the head Nurse at the VD clinic.”

 

Man: “Hey! You’re looking nice. Wanna hang out?”
You: “I heard that you were a Ladykiller. They take one look at you and die of shock.”

 

Man: “Do you think I can give you a buzz?”
You: “My number’s in the phone book.”
Man: “How will I find it? I don’t even know your name.”
You: “You can find it in the book as well.”
