    I really had nothing this week. Some weeks are like that. The joke about building a $7 slam zip gun that fire a 12 gauge shotgun shell can actually be done, but don’t attempt because of extreme danger if the two pieces of pipe and end cap cannot withstand 7.000 psi of pressure. In the war in Bosnia for example, much of the weapons were handmade. Sadly, many people in very poor nations can build lethal weapons from scrap metal including grease guns that can hold a 33 bullet clip and other lethal weapons. It would be great if the United States could teach democracy to these nations ruled by warloads and revolts, but then again look at our presidential election mess.

    If my grandmother was still alive, she would naively ask me, “Is that funny man going to be on TV tonight. He makes me laugh…” after watching the last debate. SNL, try as hard as they can, can hardly top the actual debate…

    Lots of good ones, glad the Caption Contest is back. john430 is a deserving winner, and I also really enjoyed debitking’s entry.

    Thanks, Franklin. Had a lot of Honorable Mentions before this win.
