Remember, if you smoke after sex, you're doing it too fast.

I disagree. You mean to tell me that EACH shag I have had was too fast?

So there is a rooster and an egg in bed.

The rooster is looking happy and smoking a cigar, while the egg appears to be in a bad mood.

Not much of a story, but it solves the problem of which came first.

Smoking a cigar in bed is illegal in some places.

Because it could lead to solving the mystery of why the chicken crossed the road.

Sorry, that's all I've got.

According to the context of the joke, it was the rooster who came first. But that's not really funny because there haven't really been any conundrums revolving around roosters and eggs.

Look who just became the Dakar Decoder Ring.

Apparently my dogmatic requirement of precision in such a joke is lost on some.

And/or without proper lubrication. Steam is a different issue, one that I'll leave to the reader's imagination.

I have three words to describe why the place is dead.

POLITICAL. WAR. LOUNGE.

If that hellhole was gone (or if it was possible to make it completely invisible at your discretion) I'd visit a lot more, as would many others. Even if I try to simply "avoid it," the people who post there use such friggin' stupid, provocative thread titles that it's hard to ignore. And I'll admit, I've posted there a fair bit in the past, but I've stopped.

I followed another veteran user's example and simply requested I be banned from the Poli Lounge.

It's the massive amount of dumb trolling and crapping modding there that really kills it.
