  • That's pretty good. :) While it does remind me of Les also, this is a better grade of joke than most of what he posted, lol.

  • I guess I don't get it. Regardless if there's potatoes in those bags, it is saying that those bags weigh 5, 10, 50, and 100 pounds.

    Your ability to process the grammar in that picture is sub-par. It's referring specifically to the bags. Replace the pounds with colors, for example.

    "With a red potato bag in each hand," etc. They aren't multi-pound bags of potatoes.

    The difference is in the phrasing....here it says 10 lb potato bag (as in the bag big enough to hold 10 lbs of potatoes). If it said 10 lb bag of potatoes then it would still weigh 10 lbs (plus the bag)

  • Wouldn't a 5-lb potato bag and a 10-lb potato bag be the same size bag, but one would have 5-lbs of potatos in it, whereas the other would have 10-lbs of potatoes in it? Or are there actual potato bags out there specifically made to hold 5, 10, and 15 lbs of potatos, and no more? Because if so, I wasn't aware of such a fact about potatos.

    No, it's because your brain is like 5 pounds of potatoes in a 10 pound bag.

  • All joking aside, as soon as I hit 50, and noticed how bad off I was... and how far I'd let myself go, I was pretty depressed.

    Now, I have severe crippling arthritis so exercise is a real difficult thing-- but my wife bought me this book called Younger Next Year, and I started realizing I was on the road to dead by 55... heart attack or stroke, so I went hardcore against my trend.

    I hit the pool not 3 days a week, but 7 days a week.

    45 minute swims became 90 minute swims.

    I went from eating 1800 calories a day... down to 1200 calories per day, mostly pure protein and protein shakes.

    I saw some good results.

    Then I got REAL serious.

    90 minute swims became an average of 120 minutes.

    I started tolerating 900 calories per day. ... I dropped 60 lbs in 4 months.

    Then I got even more serious... I was starving to death, but more than that I didn't want to break, I didn't want to give up all that I gained, so at the end of September this year I had a Gastric Sleeve -- had 85% of my stomach removed.

    Now I eat 500 calories a day and it feels like too much. Now my average swim is 150 minutes, which is how long it takes me to get to 2 miles.

    I've lost 135 lbs since my birthday this past march. Only 65 lbs to go, and I'll be the same weight I was when I was 19 years old. I should be there by my 51st birthday.

    I feel freaking great. I plan on being in perfect shape at 60 years old. :)

    After you feel confident at that level, try swimming with a potato.

  • All this amazing (and hilarious) nitpicking about different types of potato bags, etc reminds me of something that people I know who are far, far better at finding stuff on the Net than me have not found.

    Many years ago, sometimes in breaks during NFL games telecast in Australia, they would have these hilarious voice-overs, in front of actual footage. I don't know what TV channel or network they were on in the US.

    I can only muddily remember bits of three of them, and I'm hoping some folks can also remember them, and (gasp!) find them, if they are out there.

    One was footage of a person on the sidelines fiddling with a pile of footballs. In the voice-over he asks the head coach "what are these, Coach?" The coach yells "They're footballs, you idiot! This is the last time I hire a temp!"

    Another was, I recall, Brett Favre talking to an official on the field about something (maybe the ball spot). The official points to the stands and holds his arms out, like he's describing the size of a fish he caught. In the voice-over, Favre asks the official where the washroom is, and the official points "to it" and says "but you can only fit in there if your backside is less than this wide" [measurement].

    But the one that the delightful silliness in this thread reminded me of was a coach talking quite intensively to several players seated on the bench. The voice-over indicated the coach was having trouble getting the players to understand his instructions. He said some thing like "Well, suppose you are a farmer, and you have to get your apples on to a train somewhere"... one of the players says "but Coach, this isn't the time of year for apples, it's far too late in the season."
    Coach switches to other hypotheticals, which the players in turn refute, and so on...

    Anyone remember what I'm babbling about, please?

    Closest I can think if would be Bad Lip Reading, though I haven't seen those scenarios on it.
