Jokes / Masochist and sadist
« Last post by Peter Anderson on October 22, 2017, 12:55:47 PM »
A masochist said to a sadist, "Hit me!"
The sadist said, "No!"

Peter

I first told this joke over 60 years ago, when I was at school.  Over half my chums never got it!
I suspect it was because they didn't understand what a masochist was back in the 50's, rather than their ability to appreciate the subtleness therein.

Casey, Murphy and Flanagan were about to be shot by a firing squad, so they decided to try and divert their executioners and escape in the confusion.   The firing squad lined up, and Casey shouted “Tornado”, and the troops took cover.     The next was Flanagan.   The troops lined up and he shouted, “ Cyclone”, and they scattered.     The next was Murphy.    The soldiers took aim, and he shouted, “Fire!”

I have adjusted my comments on Box (above) to reflect the way Box works now.  They have upgraded their website recently.

One further comment about uploads to Box.  The 'default' is to upload in Date Order, so you get the latest uploads at the top.  But you can change the listing to eg. alphabetical order of 'titles of songs'.  Useful if you have uploaded a number of songs and want to check out whether a particular song is in your uploads.  Just click on the 'heading' of a column and the order will change.  One click at the top of the first column for 'alphabetical order'; and a second click to get it into 'reverse alphabetical order'.
