Conversations At Our House v.10

SSB: [after completing an online quiz about where he should live] It says that I should live in Indianapolis-

Sy: Ooo!

SSB: New Orleans-

Sy: Not as long as you are married to me.

SSB: the Netherlands, Wales-

Sy: I would be OK with those. I hear Wales is pretty.

SSB: or Poland? [gives Sy an unsure look]

Sy: I don't know much about Poland. I hear they have a lot of light bulbs that need changing. Hey, we could start our own business!

SSB: Yeah, but there are only two of us.

Sy: Yeah, but we're not Polish*!! We'd make a killing!

*This is not entirely true. I'm a tiny bit Polish on my dad's side.

Wendy A, hmmm... I never really thought about it like that.

AG, thanks. I like to amuse.

Shannon, I was afraid that it might get a little lost since it is a bit more sophisticated than most Polish jokes. But then, I know my audience is quite sophisticated!

Oh that’s so cool , for New Orleans jazz is so hot
You can hit the high notes, if your in the right spot
Laugh in the sun and laugh in the rain
No matter it seems, if its on Wisconsin plains

Wales is the land for your petite appetite
Poland is the land for your soft polish hands
Dream a new dream of a new promised land
Dream is Wisconsin your special dream state

My favorite part in Raising Arizona:

Glen: How many Polacks does it take to change a lightbulb?

HI: I don't know,

"cuz they're so dang STUPID!"

That movie rules.

you don't wish to go to New Orleans? I know it's a little dirty but...they have crawfish po' boys!

Mmmm, crawfish.

SSB, that is one of the best movie of all time. And one of the few movies in which I think he does a fine job acting.

Derek, visiting would be fine, but living there would not. I hate humidity and I'm not a fan of big city living.

Oh yeah on those crawfish though. Every year in my home town we have a crab boil (they call them "crabs" there as well as "crayfish"). YUMMY!!

Yes, I can really recommend the Netherlands. Imagine being able to eat an unlimited amount of great cheese?
