    SAR is the guy BMW execs discussed when marketing the introductory model.

    "We need a guy who isn't rich, but is so insecure and so concerned what others think that he's willing to pay a stupid sum for a Toyota Camry with a BMW badge on it. And he can't afford to buy it, so we'll lease the Camry to him"

    Start dropping hints about power of attorney early on, especially if its just the MIL. "You shouldn't have to be worrying about all that stuff, Mom."
    Fixed the spelling.

    See, this is what you don't get. None of us try. We just are. You, on the other hand, try more than anyone on JI. And you, more than anyone on JI, fail.

    only you didn't toss the kenmore softball. you were showing off your entertainment center, and I believe Gronk Welkhead spotted the entry level off-white kenmore stove in the background.

    Loser’s prize has sex ap-peel

    Loser’s prize has sex ap-peel

    Now he’s the top banana.

    A week ago, Henry Gribbohm was mocked as a loser for blowing his $2,600 life savings on a carnival game — only to receive a large stuffed banana with dreadlocks as a consolation prize.

    But the New Hampshire dad has cashed in on the calamity — the comedy Web site CollegeHumor.com bought the fancy fruit from him for $2,600 and gave him an Xbox Kinect — the very prize he had been trying to win at the “Tubs of Fun’’ game.

    “I felt a little bad for that guy,’’ said Streeter Seidell, editor-in-chief of the humor outlet.

    The stuffed banana is now a welcome member of the site’s team, which posted a series of photos of the toy’s office interactions. Above: “Getting the girls as well?”

    Well then, let me thank you for letting us all in on the joke. We truly appreciate you taking the time and effort to cleverly craft these little life novellas for our (and presumably your) amusement. Really, when you get right down to it, we're simply slaves to your erudite machinations.

    Again, our sincerest thanks.
