Welcome to the Military Community Members of DailyKos Openthread!
Comments, tips, and recommends welcome from our Civilian Kossacks as well!

I can't think of a better way to start the week than with some photos and some jokes and some funny anecdotes. I bet Testvet would agree.

A couple of months ago, when Testvet was in the hospital before, llbear posted a diary asking for jokes. It was a great success. We know that both Testvet and his wife, Dorrie, read and laughed there way through all we had to share.

So, Testvet is about to face another surgery this Wednesday. The prayers have been requested and Kossacks have shown up full force in swampyankee's diary!

Let's put a smile on Testvet's face and help him be ready to greet the surgeon with a joke or two up his sleeve! Join us below and leave your own funny comment!

Okay, I have to admit that I can never remember a joke. We own Garrison Keillor's Pretty Good Joke Book for moments like these.

For the doctor:

Doctor: What seems to the be the matter?
Patient: I have a sore throat, Doctor. I ache, I have a fever.
Doctor: Sounds like some kind of virus.
Patient: Everyone in the office has it.
Doctor: Well then, maybe it's a staff infection.

For the Trolls:

Doesn't have the brainpower to toast a crouton.

For the Meta Crowd:

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large crowds.

For the non-Meta Crowd:

"Veni, Vidi, Velcro" -- I came, I saw, I stuck around.

For President Obama:

For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

For Milk Men and Women:

How many gay rights activists does it take to change a lightbulb?
None, The bulb shouldn't have to change for society to accept it.

For Readers and Booklovers:

I'm reading a terrifically interesting book about anti-gravity -- I just can't put it down.


Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

For the anti-RKBA:

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will accidentally shoot their kids.

For the Canadians in our midst:

How many Canadians does it take to change a lightbulb?
Four, One to go across the border to buy the bulb at the factory outlet, one to screw it in, one to translate everything into French, and one to drop the puck.

And, last but not least, for the MCM:

Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
I went to buy some camouflage clothing, but I couldn't find it.
After the Swift Boat Veterans who served with Kerry in Vietnam claimed that Kerry lied about his heroism, the Democrats wanted to make a similar ad about attacking Bush, but they couldn't find anyone who served with him.

How about you? Got a joke to add? No joke? How about a picture, or a story, or anything else you might think will help bring a smile to Testvet's face!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
