    Walking around the Capital last week with the finance minister and started to notice lots of streets getting blocked off and helos orbiting overhead. Figured somebody important was gonna be on the move and it turns out it was the big man and the first lady. Thought it was pretty cool to see them roll by, although at the time we were just guessing that it was the President.

    BTW evidently you can tell its the President when you see the ambulance. He's the only one that has an ambulance following the motorcade.

      Enjoyed your conversation more than the video. :lol3:

      "There's like 30 cars. Holy moly. It's ridiculous. What does that cost."

        I'm glad I'm not the only one that trolls their spouse.

          I can be brutally sarcastic with my wife and she is extremely gullible. Sometime, for a very brief moment, I feel sorry she puts up with me.

            My favorite is to make up birds. I’ll point out a bird and say something like that is a cross between a bald eagle and a cardinal. For probably 10 years, I never told her I was joking. I had to let her in on it when I heard her telling one of the kids that a bluejay was a rare ring necked humming woodpecker.

            I still do it. But I now get an instant “f you” response.

              Or much worse, the "No F for u" response. LOL

                  After 30 years my wife is waaaaay over it. While my jokes get lots of other people laughing all I get from her is disapproving silence.

                  We were in Home Goods the other day looking for something or other and I was checking out some of the weird decorations they have. I came across a full sized baby elephant statue that was around 5 feet tall and said to my wife, "We should buy this and put it in our living room and refuse to talk about it." The ladies around us laughed but my wife just scolded them for their encouragement. The thing is I seriously thought $500 was cheap to pay for a joke that would keep on giving.

                    Reminds me of my sick buddy Kent who had one of those inflatable sheep sex toys in his living room (yes this is when he was still single, lol). He had it laying around as a gag and invariably, when people who were over at his house picked up the sheep they all did the same thing....stick their finger into the "business end" of the sheep's backside. Why people do this, I don't know but I surmise that they are curious as to how a sex doll actually works. So one day he filled that slot up with petroleum jelly and from then on, whenever somebody investigated the slot, hilarity ensued when they withdrew their slippery fingers and the look of horror came over their faces at the thought of the Fk-sheep actually being used for its intended purpose.

                        I can be pretty quick to mislead the wife, and she is forever gullible on such things, but I've never considered making up birds.

                        For 3 games, over 2-3 seasons, we got tickets for the two of us with friends and ALWAYS surprised her. For one, at a WLOCP we had tickets in advance, but my buddy and I wandered off to 'scalp some' and came back with them. We walked to the stadium with my friends and parted ways, indicating they were in another section. We got to our seats and were watching the players warm up when the rest of the crew arrived to sit with us and she was blown away we could get scalped tickets next to our friends. For another, a home game against TN, I explained we simply couldn't find any tickets and as we walked our friends up to the gate so they could go in with their tickets, I asked her to check her phone (back pocket) as I thought she got a message....our two tickets were there.

                        Seriously, finding the right spouse can provide a lifetime of entertainment. Like some of you, I can't figure out what she sees in me. I tell folks often, her best trait is that she puts up with my sht.

                          I don't notice the color of ambulances, Ox. Stop trying to virtue signal your progressive taste in ambulances.
