attydallas3: "Fairy Tale" - had a bud just forward this funny to me. See if you can guess the answer ... Will post the (correct) answer in a day or two (no fair looking this one up via Google!):
* * * * * *
Once upon a time there lived a King who had the most beautiful daughter.
But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt.
No matter what:
Anything she touched would melt.
Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her.
The King despaired. What could he do to help his daughter?
He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the King,
'If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.'
The King was overjoyed and came up with a plan.
The next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an
object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the King's wealth.
THREE YOUNG PRINCES TOOK UP THE CHALLENGE.
The first brought a sword of the finest steel.
But alas, when the Princess touched it, it melted.
The prince went away sadly
The second prince brought diamonds.
He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt.
But alas, once the Princess touched them, they melted.
He too was sent away disappointed.
The third prince approached. He told the Princess,
'Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.'
The Princess did as she was told, though she turned red.
She felt something very hard. She held it in her hand.
And it did not melt!!!
The King was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed.
And the Prince married the Princess and they both lived happily ever after.
Question: What was in the Prince's pants????

attydallas3: "Asiana Airlines Crash - Name Hoax" - this airing probably runs a close one with the earlier broadcast for funniest name hoaxing broadcast live on a major T.V. station. Many people still remember this happening from 7 years ago. The television station had to apologize a short time later live on the air for having been pranked by the names of the alleged 4 pilots of the plane The airline had later announced even that they were going to sue the television station over the incident. :airliner::
attydallas3 in reply to attydallas3: Family Feud - the "September" Episode .. This is one of the funniest moments in FF history. Richard Dawson is just so stunned at how dumb the two sisters' responses are during "Fast Money" he can't quit laughing - eventually falling to his knees. Ironically, the Trejo family had won FM before, but that day the two sisters just seemed to "brain fahrt" big time. Dawson brought the Trejos back a few years later on the show for a 2nd shot and to share special memories of that fateful day, for those viewers who missed it the first time:
attydallas3: Diabetes Drug Metformin (Glucophage) Under Investigation for Possible Contamination - Oh boy .. first they have recalled my high blood pressure drug (Losartan) not once but twice b/c of "rocket fuel" contamination, now the same thing may happen to my diabetes med. If the diseases don't kill us, the meds will .. :
If you or someone you know is on Met., be sure to keep an eye out for updates on the investigation .. If the F.D.A. does pull it, that will be very interesting ... since the agency admits there is no other drug that works like it ..
attydallas3: King Floyd - "Hard to Handle" - Squeezed in between Otis' original version and the rockin' update of same recorded in the '90s by the Black Crowes, there was this groovy '70s version by the King
attydallas3: "Official" Holiday Cookies of Each State - Very interesting and I'll take one of each, please .. Kinda confusing though .. we don't even raise peanuts in TX, but Peanut Pralines is "our" cookie . Coconut Macaroons for CT (I thought they were a Nawlins thing?) ... I'm originally from MO but never heard of "gooey butter cookies" (or even "gooey butter cake" .. .. :
attydallas3: Whatever happened to our "prolific poster" from S. Africa? Now that Miss South Africa has won the Miss U. pageant, one would think she would be posting about that event on here for sure .. &:-) Paul
attydallas3: O.K., on second look that video is a little disconcerting, with adults "singing" (lip syching) the part of the tune actually sung by a young children's chorus. Here is a live performance of the tune on Les Dawson's (classic Brit musician-comedian) T.V. show that actually has the kids singing:

EloquentStorm in reply to attydallas3: The rumor was ; with milk on the baby,s mouth, the cat would go to lick it off and smother the infant. There was one I heard of decades ago, infant died out of spite and jealousy.
attydallas3: Billy Joel on The Today Show - "Keeping the Faith" .. Yes, he changed the main hook a bit by this time from the way it sounded in the original version 25 or so years earlier .. :
attydallas3: "Senior Citizen's Prayer" - Mary Maxwell is a "senior comedienne" .. The funny stuff on this video starts just after the 1:00 minute mark or so:
attydallas3: Hmmmm .. just tried to post something to one of CharredJ's numerous posts and it said I was "blocked" ? wth??? &:-) Paul
attydallas3: "73-Year-Old Grandmother Becomes Internet Fitness Icon" - Wow .. amazing transformation .. Just goes to show it's never too late to just do it .. Like she says, "we may be old, but we're not dead" hmmmmm ... &:-)
attydallas3: "At the Equator" - Amazing video shows the effects of being on or just a few feet from either side of the equatorial line, using a bowl of water to demonstrate. Note also the speaker mentions that you weigh 3% less when precisely at the equator - instant weight loss w/o dieting! &:-) Paul
attydallas3: Quakes In Northern CA - So, anyone feel them? builder? :
attydallas3: "Walk of Respect" - something a hospital in Idaho does every time an organ donor passes .. All available employees report to the hallway as the deceased is wheeled from their last room to the transplantation area ..
attydallas3: Speak of the (?) .. We were discussing on here earlier on another thread about how the medical/pharmaceutical industries are making a ton of $$ off treatment for diseases for which there is still no cure (e.g. cancer, diabetes).
I was just reading today a paragraph in the A.A.R.P. Magazine this month about a new medical procedure for Type II diabetics. It likely was the result of research into why the very radical Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery procedure (which I had in 2006) almost always results in a quick "cure" for that type of diabetes. The new procedure is called "Duodenal Mucousal Resurfacing" .. It basically involves the surgical burning away of the outer layer (lining) of the first 4" of the duodenum segment of the small intestine. As a result, "much better" control of Type II diabetes is achieved and within 6 months post-op most patients who were taking injectible meds (e.g. insulin) beforehand no longer needed them NO NO ... Wow! &:-) Paul
averyhappywoman54: It has always made sense thou Paul with losing weight & exercising, your diabetes could be a thing of the past. Of course their are many people who are thin who also get diabetes. Any word on the car, or is it "lost"
attydallas3: Superblack finally arrived Thursday night, VH. Owner of the co. in NJ/NY ended up driving to VA to pick the auto transporter up and take over the route for the cars that were on it at the time, including mine. Seems the original driver drove it and left it there in VA b/c his father went into ICU with a very dangerous blood clot in his carotid artery near his brain. Makes sense that he wanted to be with his dad, but I don't understand why the co. never called me to let me know where it was for the five days it was "MIA" ever since pickup in Allentown on Saturday night. I was about ready to report it stolen by the driver of the transport. grrrrr! &:-) Paul
attydallas3: "Friday Night Blues" - A #2 hit for John Conlee from back in my DJ daze Funny, how as a naive 18-y.o., I just though it sounded so "neat" at the time and nice music .. 40 years later and the song now seems to make complete sense, revealing a great depth of "human knowledge" by the composer ..
attydallas3: The "Old Hippie" Trilogy. Take a drift back into the old "daze" with the Bellamy Brothers. They actually recorded three successive versions of this tune, "updating" each over their predecessor tune as the decades have passed. This is the original one, recorded in the late '70s (the other two to follow):
attydallas3: "False Eyeglasses" - Wondering what people's thoughts are on this .. The other day I was shopping at my usual big & tall place (where else could I go unless I wanted to be nude? ) and noticed they had a rack of nice-looking eyeglasses near the cash register. I asked the cashier what powers of mag. they were (I assumed they were readers), since there were no markings on them for that purpose. I was stunned to learn from her that they had just plain glass for lenses in them. wth??? Who in the world would buy and wear "eyeglasses" just for the look of wearing them? Is this some new trend or something? &:-) Paul

attydallas3 in reply to blondephd: Wow. Guess I have been a bit out of touch with the social scene, sounds like. I better get me a pair of those glasses like JoEbangsadoughnut is wearing in his pic . .. Maybe those will get me the chicks .. ! Thanks, DoctorBlonde*** &:-) Paul
attydallas3: I keep wanting to get Lasik, but it is so expensive. They have big ads on T.V. on supposedly how $ reasonable it is, but when you read the fine print (if you CAN read it - ) it says that's for run-of-the-mill nearsightedness. If you have astigmatism, like I do, they want many x that amount to perform it b/c they claim it takes several procedures and not just one. The other thing I found out is that they usually won't just do it by you walking in .. They usually require an eye prescription that is approximately at least one year old. I guess they want to make sure your eyes are really "steady" at your current vision status before going to work on them. &:-) Paul
