The name of my invention is simply called the A-Hole Tester. I came up with this idea while at my neighbor Bob's house. He knows everything, just ask him. Anyway, we were always lighting our farts on fire while watching Fox News. I realized that if an A-hole were to blow on an open flame they instantly burst into flames. Now that I think about it, I can't remember that last time I didn't see Bob on fire. Anyway, who would like to fund my invention and get my idea off the ground?

There are always a few people running around with their hair on fire around here.

Why is it everytime we have a meeting, Fred turns into a 'Hot Head;!

Is this a sequel, because it sounds like a Nick Cage movie? The one where he is on a plane taken over by cons, as he's on his way to a honeymoon in Vegas...

Has anyone seen my pants?
Billable Hours May 31, 2012 at 02:52 PM
No, but it was directed by Adam Shankman. You may remember him as the guy who directed the 2005 Vin Diesel megahit The Pacifier. It grossed more than $3,200 worldwide, which is impressive for a Vin Diesel movie.

Maybe you left them next to Dr. Nguyen Van Falk's "Gay Hole Tester".
Billable Hours May 31, 2012 at 03:04 PM
Doctor I am sorry for any confusion, but I'm failing to see how my "A-Hole Tester" invention could be confused with your "Gay Hole Tester" body part!
Bob May 31, 2012 at 05:52 PM
Ummmm....we said we were looking for a new executive with a fire IN HIS BELLY!!!!!
Bob May 31, 2012 at 05:55 PM
Why did we hire this Dem liberal? He has plenty of fire but no brains or substance!

Starved for attention again, Bob?

Rob P's is my favorite!!
Bob June 05, 2012 at 03:24 AM
No more than you, Tom. The difference is that I made a post on topic with some humor and thought. That's in contrast with your post, which showed neither, probably reflecting its poster!
Tom June 05, 2012 at 04:32 AM
Um, bob...that was my caption. I hadn't even read your posting. Jeez.
Bob June 05, 2012 at 12:52 PM
HA HA! My apologies, Tom. I've been taking so much flack lately that I made the presumptuous assumption that because you uused my name you were talking about me! I need a vacation.......
