One Man's Junk...Is Another's Treasure (Part 2)
Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Alf Erickson has unstuck yet another drawer freeing corkscrews trapped for years. Alf says "Yikes, I found another stuck drawer. The damn corkscrews are haunting the whole house....everywhere they find darkness...they are breeding by themselves."
It's Started (from Skip)
A man comes home from an exhausting day at work, plops down on the couch in front of the television, and tells his wife, "Get me a beer before it starts." The wife sighs and gets him a beer.
Fifteen minutes later, the man says, "Get me another beer before it starts." She looks cross, but fetches another beer and slams it down next to him.
He finishes that beer and a few minutes later says, "Quick, get me another beer, it's going to start any minute."
The wife is furious. She yells at him, "Is that all you're going to do tonight? Drink beer and sit in front of that TV? Youre nothing but a lazy, drunken, fat slob, and furthermore..."
The man sighs and says, "Its started".
