Fibbing Friday — Mixed Bag of Fibs

Di (aka Pensitivity101) hosts Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today Di has handed us a mixed bag.

  1. What is a bobby pin? It’s a device used to hold up bobby sox.
  2. What is a Whoopee Cushion? It’s what Woopi Goldberg sits on during her talk show on TV.
  3. What is a cock a poo? It’s the act of urinated at the same time as you’re defecating.
  4. Why are some chicken eggs brown and some white? Because some chickens feed on brown rice and some feed on white rice.
  5. How would you describe cardboard? It’s a wood board specifically designed to sit on a table for playing poker and other card games on.
  6. What do a pony and monkey have in common? They both have two syllables and end with the letter Y.
  7. What is a USB key? It’s a key to the Social Security lock box at the United States Bank.
  8. What is a golden handshake? It’s when men, after peeing, shake their penises to get the last drops of urine out and a few remaining drops come out and land on their hands.
  9. What is an orange pippin? It’s a seed in an orange that you accidentally swallow and try to cough up.
  10. What is Teflon? It’s how you describe someone who commits crimes but nothing sticks to him and he’s never held accountable because he’s so slippery and slimy. As in “Teflon Don” (i.e., Donald Trump).

    You are a diverse thinker……

    Hey? Ineresting you raise the cock a poo thing. A not easy skill to perfect it isn’t. Down here in Orstralia we call it taking a leak and doing a dump simultaneously (I know, I know, it’s a big word for me Fan). Leak-dump for short. In the army if you suddenly heard the cry ‘leak dump’ you knew what was happening. Just joking Fan but you know what the army does to you. Messes up your brain……..😜

        I was drafted for National Service. My 2 yr path was very different to others, many who ended up in Vietnam. I made sure it went my way, not the governments. And it did. See the general public were against conscription and Vietnam so one could play this your way. Which I did. They gave me a hard time but I got a plum job in the final year at a university malaria research lab. But wait for this? We had to wear civvies. Now that was cruel. Couldn’t drink coffee in the canteen in uniform. Imagine my pain Fan.

        I woulda got stoned.

        You would have noticed my wish to increase traffic. There is a downside to this. Difficult to spend time giving wished for in-depth responses, as I long to do. My post on just being happy with a handful expressed this 😉

    Forget. Some others think of their dearly beloved when ‘Shaking hands with the wife’s best friend’.

    Others would substitute Trixxie or Lexxie. they had to pay for it though…..😜

    I’m being serious now. (I can be)

    When I was teaching chemistry I wrote to the American inventor of Teflon, Roy Plunkett. He wrote back. Signed it. I should have it framed and hung on the wall. Shame.

    He discovered it by accident. Tetrafluoroethylene TEFLON four fluorine atoms attached to an ethylene molecule. Your chemistry lesson for today Fan.

    When awarded the Scott medal in 1951 every guest received a muffin tin coated in his invention – Teflon.

    Interesting hey?

        Interesting article. Didn’t read all as it went on and on and on. Fluoridation has had it’s share of for/against from the very beginning. From the health side I think they now would have the balance right.

        There will always be opponents to everything.

        Interesting in Australia our plastic recycling scheme is not going so well. Glass/alumininium OK can be continually recycled. Plastics are decycled and on each decycle microplastics released into environment. Only solution is to get plastics out of our lives.

        Same old story. Jump into a new idea without thinking it fully through. OK small hiccups can be overcome. We jump in all excite. Wot long term plan? Problem boss. Can’t recycle huge stockpile solar panels. Cost too much. Shit Jack why didn’t we think of that? No problem , India will take them. Sorted……

          Personal experience (not a formal experiment): For a while, I was drinking Zero Water filtered water. I kinda knew this wasn’t a great idea, as people are warmed not to rely on distilled water (free of all bio-contaminants as well as all minerals). Zero Water filters filter more than, say, Brita (when I last checked anyway). A thin piece of one of my bottom teeth, in the back of the tooth (not visible and not an actual medical or functional problem but scary), slid off. I now drink less-filtered water (whatever filter a GE fridge uses). I think Zero Water is fine for cooking water, where one remineralizes for, say, broth. I also drink tap water (in a township where the water is clean as well as fluoridated). We have some messed up areas in this country where the people can’t count on their water. Back to Teflon, it’s another forever chemical (like plastic), right?

        Although I am fascinated with chemistry I think man dabbling with these has caused so much damage. Certainly much gain but also a hell of a lot of damage.

        Same old story Fan. Get excite. Jump in gung ho. Don’t check it out fully first.

        Problem boss. Can’t recycle stockpile solar panels. Why Jack? Cost too much. Shit Jack why we no think at beginning? India will take it. Sorted…….

        Will look into that movie…..

    Yikes. I was going to ask whether or not it would qualify as cockapoo if I sat urinating on a toilet while posting about fluoride poisoning, but I don’t want to be near that context (see Matthews).
