    I can't remember where I got this from but I copied it from someone else's post on this forum. Seemed like the perfect time to use it.:)

    I really hope the "bunny with things on his head" pics don't gain steam here.

    Hmmm... Based on what I see on TV (so it must be true, ducks say "AFLAC!" and sound like Gilbert Gottfried. :grin:

    I can actually shed some light on that cryptic original post...

    This week, "Jeopardy!" is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its current incarnation by rerunning some older episodes. Monday night, they showed Alex Trebek's first episode, from 1984.

    Tuesday night, they showed an episode from 1999, which was the fifth and final episode of the original run of blind contestant Eddie Timanus. Back then, "Jeopardy!" broadcasts were "enhanced for WebTV"...and Tuesday night's rerun still had a graphic advertising that fact at the beginning of the show.

    However, I'd be very surprised if the rerun would have "worked" with WebTV (assuming anyone even still has one of those). It had been edited, to add a couple of brief segments with Alex Trebek coming out of the commercial breaks -- those kinds of edits wreak havoc with the information contained in the "hidden" portions of the picture, most notably the closed captioning, but presumably also the WebTV "codes."

    But that doesn't explain why the bunny has a pancake on his head. :nono:

    Maybe, but I hate hair in my pancake syrup! And I generally don't need to floss while/after eating pancakes. But, then again, I haven't tried bunny hair... :rolleyes:

    Two things are bugging me.

    1) Has anyone bought M&Ms lately? They are using different paper, and you need scissors to open them. I always tear the end straight off. Not only can I not make the initial tear with my fingers, even after I do it with my incissor teeth, I can't continue the tear by hand,. I have to bite the paper two or more times. It is like they are using the kind of paper that Time or Newsweek used about 40 years ago in a subscription solicition maailing that said on the outside of the envelope, "We bet you can't tear up this envelope", and we couldn't. Now I'm going to have to keep a pair of scissors on my dachboard.

    2. All the convenience stores here have discontinued carrying the 3-1/2 and 3-3/4 ounce sizes of ALL of their product lines of potato chips that they sold for $1.59 each, and that shelf space has been replaced with 6 oz bags for $2.19. I don't want to eat 900 calories of chips as one snack, but it says right on the bag, "Betcha can't eat just one!", and they win that bet every time.

    OK, things have gone too far... We've moved from a bunny with a pancake on his head to scissors on a board fastened to dachshund!

    I hear they're tasty in soup. And you don't have to eat it fast like you do with rabbit soup!

    Since I has 5 minutes to kill (which I'll never get back)....I ran into and through this thread.

    While I have never taken drugs....I think I now know what the experience feels like.
