My Other Half

(Guest post by Hoop. Maybe I can convert him into a blogger yet!)

Whats up everyone? Well, my amazing girlfriend just introduced me to this crazy machine called a "com-pute-r." Then she taught me about this so called "in-ter-net." That brings me to this post. Well now that you know how I got here and I am up to speed, I guess we can move on. I don't really know what to write, so I'll start out with a joke-

Q: What has six eyes and seven teeth?

The only catch is you have to read the rest of my post very carefully to find the answer.

So yesterday evening when I got home from work I let our dogs out. I delayed shutting the door for a minute to check out the scenery in our new back yard. When I decided to shut it, I guess Duff (Our cool, not so smart dog) thought I was opening it for them to come inside. He hauled ass like a crack hoe to the pipe at full speed head first into the door. It happened so fast, right in front of me. I felt really bad for him but then couldn't stop laughing after I realized he was ok. He seemed as though it didn't even bother him. Do dogs feel pain?

Did you guys catch the joke? I'll give you a hint, you gotta go back and read the Duff story, its somewhere right after the middle.

This weekend I have to take some insurance classes for my job so I can get the big dogs even richer. Maybe I can get them to take to some ideas I have concocted to make more money. We offer all types of insurances on our loans to protect the customer's interest.... as well as our own. If someone gets laid off from their job, injured and can't work, or dies, our insurance products pay on the loan. Sometimes they come in handy, but what we need to offer is prison and divorce insurance. Our area is crazy. I had a guy threaten to shoot me cause he got denied for a loan. We have a customer who is a really cool guy that got a DUI four months ago here in Fla and is not getting out until November just because it was a second offense in four yrs. That's a little ridiculous isn't it? And a ton of them have divorced since I got the job. Does anyone think I can sell my insurance ideas?

So anyways here is the real answer to my joke-

A: The night shift at the Waffle House.

I've been telling that joke for fifteen years now and nobody's heard it and I always get a laugh, unless its told in an area where there are no Waffle Houses. Feel free to use it with my permission and receive the same joy as I have over the years.

(Show the boy some love and comment! Have a great weekend guys.)

Hi Hoop! It's nice to finally get to "meet" you! You do have an awesome girlfriend. And don't you forget it. That girl of yours is the best thing that will EVER happen to you. Ok, so you are each other's best thing. But I just wanted to make sure you knew what a lucky guy you are!

Funny joke. But no waffle houses here in MN

Hi Hoop. Nice guest post!

So I'll use your joke, I'll just substitute Shari's for Waffle House and it'll fit just right :)

heehee... I'll tell that one to my husband tonight.

My dog did that same thing so many times with our sliding glass door that I finally taped a piece of paper up at about snout level, cuz I was worried she might be getting brain damage!

Nice post Hoop!

Cute joke.

Only we don't have a Waffle House. We used to have a Shari's but it was bought out by Denny's and now is an empty building...poor us. lol

So how often do you get to come out and play?

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger Scottsdale Girl said...

Yes that joke would play better as a Denny's here in Scottsdale AZ.

HI! Found Tink & Hoop through...hmmm where DID I find you two?

OOOOH I bet it was from Lee (Slice of LIfe!)
Wanted to give proper credit. :)

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger Chelle said...

Uh, I don't get it! We do not have those here! Haha! (Just kidding, I have been to them in North Carolina).

Great post! I can see why you and Tink get along so well!

We don't have Waffle House in MN - but I've been to a Waffle House in FL before, so I know exactly what you mean...

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger Kbreints said...

Very good! I am impressed! Love the Waffle house joke, sad thing is... it is true!

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger Betty said...

Hi, Hoop. Are you going to have your own blog one of these days? You and Tink could do "duelling blog posts". What fun.

{{{{Some love}}}} :-)

That was lame. I know. I just woke up from napping with Buddy and my wit is lost under a huge pile of laundry in my basement.

Where's your blog?!

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger meno said...

Welcome to the dark side. I am so stealing that joke.

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger Jay said...

Hoooooooooop .. What's up dude?

I used to eat at Waffle House like every day. I lived in Missouri and I would walk down to Waffle House and have the "all you can eat" deal in the afternoon for my only big meal of the day.

I had a thing for one of the waitresses ther.

She had all her teeth.

Okay, most of them. LOL

whoo hoo Hoop!

Come back real soon now, mmmkay?

 
At 20 April, 2007, Blogger Foo said...

So... wait. The night shift at the waffle house are... crack hoes? See, it's not that we don't have Waffle House here, but when I was still young enough to be awake, inebriated, and ravenous at 2am, I always went to Denny's.

Where there are eight teeth.

hey Hoop buddy chucker pal big guy!!! How are they hanging dude...a little to the left? A little to the right??

Hi Hoop! So we don't have Waffle Houses here in Northeastern PA. However, if you substitute the name of my entire town in there, it'll work just fine.

Actually, that exact same joke is told often around here, except "Waffle House" is replaced with "The funnel cake line at the Carbon County Fair." I've always gotten a laugh when I told it too. But I stopped telling it after two of my back teeth cracked in half and I never got them fixed. [sigh]

 
At 21 April, 2007, Blogger Foo said...

(At least they were back teeth. Unlike in the small Kentucky town where I spent much of my childhood.)

Hi Hoop! I love the dog story :)

Hi Hoop! Thanks for the great joke. I hope to read more of your guest posts!

I see why you love him, Tink. ;)

Wow, so very smart. I approve of this method, indeed!

 
At 23 April, 2007, Blogger Chris said...

Great guest post. And I dig the joke although it's a little scary as it's somewhat true.

 
At 23 April, 2007, Blogger Kell said...

Welcome to the blogoshpere, Hoop! Nice to meet you.

Great joke. I've been to way too many Waffle Houses. I may have to use that one.

 
At 23 April, 2007, Anonymous wordgirl said...

OMG, Hoop. You have no idea how true that part is about the Waffle House. There's an ancient pancake house here in town and one of the most popular waitresses has been there forever and she's got very few teeth. Is that a requirement before getting a job there? I wonder....

We always get birds slamming into our front window, which is slightly less funny. Or not funny at all when I picture their tiny brains all mushed up.

What's funny is when my husband's gramma runs into the screen door. That shouldn't be funny either, like the birds, but somehow it is. I guess she makes that old lady chuckle and her hands go all fluttery. I promise it's funny.

Please come back more often. We'll keep reading, even if you talk about insurance. ;)

Welcome Hoop!

We had frequent flyer miles at the Waffle House in Lafayette when I was in school. It seemed we, and a lot of others in similar shape, would end up there in the early morning hours. I have no remembrance at all of anyone who worked there. That's probably a good thing.

I won't tell you how many times I read the middle of the Duff story.

 
At 23 April, 2007, Blogger Hoop said...

Im glad you guys liked the joke, I'm running out of people to tell it to. Gramma walkin into the door is definetly funny, I called TBS and checked. Thanks for reading the post!

Hey Hoop! Great post. You have a talent for writing just as your wonderful girlfriend does!

We don't have Waffle Houses around here...we have IHOP's and Denny's though. Embarrassing to say but that joke would work by replacing Waffle House with the emergency room on night shift during a full moon (the toothless patients...not the nurses and doctors!)where I work. :-o

Yo Hoop! Here's a shout out from one of your biggest fans!

We have Waffle Houses here in Houston and I'm thinkin' you guys took all the good lookin' people if they got that many teeth in Florida.

He's a natural!

Hey Hoop - Jeff and I are still planning a boat camping trip to Lake Placid next fall... you guys are in right?
