Heck, we’re gonna gitcha all culturfied yet Goosepond. Just you wait and see.

Wagner's 15-hour Ring Cycle … in two and a half minutes – video
https://www.theguardian.com/culture/australia-culture-blog/video/2013/sep/18/wagners-ring-cycle-2-mins-video?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other


... And I’m guessin you forgot all about Gurnemanz’ advice in Parsifal:

ort hinaus, deine Wege zu!
Doch rät dir Gurnemanz:
lass du hier künftig die Schwäne
in Ruh'
und suche dir, Gänser, die Gans!

(Off with you, be on your way!
Take advice from Gurnemanz:
In future leave our swans
in peace,
go seek -- you gander --
for geese!)

Ok, that doesn’t have anything to do with anything. Cheers, Goosepond.

Hi Lester,

I'll admit I'm not an opera fan. I do like La Boheme mostly because of Pavarotti. I could listen to him sing anything and have.

I'll click on your link and let you know!  :D

Anna Russel’s explanation of Wagner’s Ring Cycle (track 9) is hilarious! :lol:

Why is this in the "Joke of the Day" thread?
I think the video of Buzz Aldrin punching a 'moon landing denier' (sic) in the face was thought of as funny, so I thought I would atttempt to redress the balance.

I don't think either posts belong in the Joke of the Day thread, but then I don't think many of the other 'jokes' belong here, either, not being very funny.

Let’s see ... Aldrin is a former fighter pilot who flew 66 combat missions in Korea and a former astronaut who did early space walks as part of the Gemini missions and then was the 2nd person to walk on the moon. He then continued to serve his country by training others for the space program. And some young arrogant dumb ass dares to harass, bully and insult this octogenarian only to get his comeuppance in spades. Yeah, I think that’s funny. I think the word is catharsis. Don’t pick on our ‘elderly’ American heroes and vets. Did I mention he was my personal hero?

And yes, this isn’t a traditional ‘ joke’ but we have had memes, cartoons and videos on this sight before.

Regards,
KP

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMm. Making a hero out of questionable acts, when i got out of the high school induced its just always a right team or a wrong team, I found the most enlightened words, that made me laugh=
"I am not sure, and thats ok"

and found i could laugh again, instead of argue, while not funny, I hope some one gets this and laughs with me.

If that's not funny, only cause tho, its a hard joke to get,  enjoy this, which is about a know it all, whose part i have often played.


Mother Nature and the Great Scientist

So the Great Scientist goes to Mother Nature and says,
Like wow Mom, we don't need ya no more,
we can splice genes,
we can be delusional and make up truth to feel better-
which is one of our most popular inventions,
We can split the Adam ( oops) Atom,
we can replace a heart,
we can fly thru the air,
So thanks for all your help, but we'll be on our own way now.

Mother Nature looks down and says, I see, yes I see, I am most proud of you.
Before you go off on your own, could I have just a small present???

Of course, any thing you like.

Mother Nature says - thank you, that is most gracious of you.
I think I would like a tiny little Tea Cup, embossed with rose's, gold rim.

The Great Scientist says- Oh sure, easy stuff, let me just do that for ya, and we'll be off -
and so the Scientist bends over to get some dirt to make Clay for a tea cup...

And Mother Nature says..... Whoa, whoa whoa,
you said you don't need me any more,
you can do anything remember??????
So you go and get your own dirt to make that tea cup.
