Did you know ....

Did you know "listen" and "silent" use the same letters?

Do you know that the words "race car" spelled backwards still spells "race car"?

And that "eat" is the only word that if you take the first letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense "ate"?

And have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in "illegal immigrants," and add just a few more letters, it spells: "Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, baby-making, non-English-speaking jackasses and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-loving, raggedy-ass bastards with you."

How weird is that?

Hmmm…Reminds me of that old joke about the Freudian slip: The other night at dinner, I meant to say "Darling, please pass the salt", but instead I said, "You've sucked all the joy out of my life, you heartless conniving bitch."

The first time I heard that joke it literally took days before I could retell it without breaking into hysterics at the punch. Really.

One of the best renditions of it was by David Hyde Pierce as "Niles Crane" on "Frasier", about his wife "Maris".

Hell, when I first heard the "pass the salt" joke, it took me days just to stop laughing every time I remembered it. Telling it would take me months before I could tell it without laughing.

Other than (perhaps) the Feminist Light Bulb Joke, it's the greatest joke of all time.

En passant, Niles Crane is easily one of the greatest comedy characters ever devised.

The writing and casting for "Frasier" seemed to me to be a lot better than the show it spun off from, "Cheers." Speaking of bitches there was Frasier's agent. He decided he wanted a "nice" agent and dumper her. Sure enough the nice agent turned out useless. That episode always makes me think of the old joke.
An actor drives up to his house and he sees cop cars, fire trucks and an ambulance. He runs up and asks, "What happened?", "Your agent came to your house, raped your wife, broke your son's leg when he tried to stop him, then set fire to the place." The actor stood there with his mouth opened and then said, "My agent came to my house?!"

Now that joke reminded me of the lawyer who was sideswiped as he pulled out of the dealer with his brand new Jag. A cop saw it and was there instantly. The lawyer was sobbing 'My new car' over and over. The cop, surprised, said 'Your car? Hell, you lost your arm!' The lawyer then screamed 'OH MY GOD, MY ROLEX'
