Time for some quadriplegic jokes, I see.

What do you call a quad who sits in front of your door?

Matt.

What do you call a quad who likes to water ski?

Skip.

I'm handicapped for life. I can tell jokes like this ;)

While I was at Wright State University I happened to be outside one of the buildings smoking a cigarette and I witnessed something that is probably an incident you will only see once in your life. Two handicapped individuals get into a verbal argument. I really do wish I could have caught this on film though.

A guy in a wheelchair comes out of the building and at about the same time a blind person with a cane comes walking in. Well somehow the blind persons cane becomes lodged in the wheel of the other persons chair.

*SNAP*

Blind person: What the fark just happened

Wheel Chair person: Watch where you are going next time asshole. You stuck your cane in the wheel of my wheelchair

BP: I'm farking blind you asshat, you could of moved out of my way

WCP: I was busy enjoying the autumn leaves, my bad

BP: God, I hate people in wheel chairs. They think they are above everyone else with a handicap. Jesus you people are just worthless. Hey I got an idea, lets go walk up some stairs. At least I can do that.

WCP: You think I'm worthless? Hey, look at that clock over there and tell me what time it is.

At this point I think they both hurt each others feelings enough because they both went there separate ways but I have never ever seen anything that funny in my life. I was in tears trying not to bust out laughing while this ensued.

Some of these are masterful; the authors should take a bow. Some of you need to be decked, or at least given a stern warning.
 
2009-01-09 11:46:56 AM  
This is what separates the bouys from the men.
 
2009-01-09 11:47:33 AM  
Umm...Great headline and all, but FTFA- Nashiro's legs are paralysed from diver's disease and he can only walk for a few metres (yards) without support- Paralysed would really mean that there was no ability to walk, not limited ability. Just sayin'.

His other brother Richard was seen with your mom last night.

Yeah, THIS guy survived, but did you hear about the quad guy who drowned last week? He fell overboard and got caught in a whirlpool.

I think his name was Eddy.

2009-01-09 12:07:48 PM  
Why do you assume the fisherman was named Bob?

Oh, I see, it says he was a buoy and not a gull.

Then you TOTALLY need to read the appendix. He's an awesome guy. Once told me I reminded him of John Galt.

And I didn't say it then, but I had figured it out.

The Sun is the engine that runs the world. It's like this giant fusion reactor in the sky, raining free energy on the people.

Me, I'm kinda like a neutron star, so bright i fold back in on myself, and show you my front and back at the same time.

Check the 'pedia. It's a cool article.

If Russell sits in those leaves too long he will have to change his name to Pete.
