    My wife has distilled the formula for all my jokes and sometimes she'll start telling what I think to be the funniest jokes I've ever heard, only for me to finally figure out she was being me.Hanover

    I was thinking about this some more. Seems like you're lucky enough to have someone who gets you. Not necessarily a common thing.

    I'm impressed!

    I was surprised to find that Burns' Civil War series was broadcast in 1990, 32 years ago; it doesn't seem like it was that far back. Shoah, a French production, was a 9 hour TV series in 1987, another very impressive documentary series.

    I should mention that that story is true, but the timeline was fictional. That session was around 2010 I think.

    As kids we were obsessed with Smokey and the Bandit and The Cannonball Run. Around that time a few people I knew were into CB radio as well, which may have been related.

    I had a CB back then and I'd talk to nearby people. I talked to one lady about the squirrels in her attic. I can't recall the exact details, but every few nights for a few weeks I'd get back on and find her and bring the squirrel conversation back up. She seemed a little annoyed that I insisted on focusing on that topic, but not so much that she'd stop talking to me. I eventually grew tired of the CB and left the squirrel talk behind. Until now.

    What about you? Any squirrel issues we need to discuss?

    I have the vision of a chase on a twisty turny Scottish road. They come around a corner and there's a herd of sheep in the middle of the road, so they have to wait to continue the chase.

    I think you know I have squirrel issues and you’re just rubbing salt in my wounds.

    Be that as it may, on the day I flew to Scotland my brother said to me—this is a true story and I might have told it here already—that he foresaw a squirrel encounter in my near future. Well, I went for a walk the next day and saw a squirrel in a Presbyterian cemetery. It was only a non-native American grey so it didn’t really count, but still, it made me ponder the nature of things.

    I like it.

    I’ve been stuck in a car waiting for sheep a few times in the Highlands, a few times waiting for goats elsewhere in Europe, and for semi-wild horses in the Pyrenees.

    The main reason I liked Cannonball Run was Adrienne Barbeau.

    Once in Iceland, some sheep got in front of my car and attempted to outrun the car instead of getting off to the side. I would slow down and so would they. FInally I had to stop so they'd get off the road.

    I know you're thinking that can't be true because all my sheep stories must end with someone having sex with the sheep. Yeah, not this time.

    Note the complexity of this joke. It makes fun of my formulaic jokes, showing I have nuance, self-awareness, humility, maturity, and charm.

    It reminds me of the time I fucked @Baden's mother.

    God cannot be invented until the sheep choose their path in Scotland. All gods bow to the Shepard. This commandment is written and will be done, lest the chip and the potato part ways. So sayeth the lord thy god., who existeth not! YEP, Friday night and I have been drinkin too much single malt! NEVER go onto TPF whilst totally pissed!!! I will regret this tomorrow morning!

    Speaking of radios...

    I was at the park the other day and a ham radio group was stretching wires all around the trees I think to communicate with Mars or something and it made me happy to be cooler than someone else for a moment, but then I reported that on a philosophy website I frequent, and then I wasn't anymore.

    True story.

    If they turn out to be an art collective working on their submission for the Turner prize then they won't look so uncool.
