Andy Rooney!

[Maybe you've heard all this before, but I'm sharing it anyway!]

Andy Rooney On . . .

Ads In Bills:

Have you ever noticed that they put advertisements in with your bills now? Like bills aren't distasteful enough, they have to stuff junk mail in there with them. I get back at them. I put garbage in with my check when I mail it in. Coffee grinds, banana peels. . . . I write, "Could you throw this away for me? Thank you."

On Fabric Softener:

My wife uses fabric softener. I never knew what that stuff was for. Then I noticed women coming up to me. They sniff, say "Married" and then walk off. That's how they mark their territory. You can take off the ring, but its hard to get that April-fresh scent out of your clothes.

On Pregnancy:

Its weird when pregnant women feel the baby kicking. They say, "Oh my. He's kicking. Do you wanna feel it?" I always feel awkward reaching over there. Come on! It's weird to ask someone to feel your stomach. I don't do that when I have gas. "Oh my! Give me your hand! It wont be long now!"

On Grandma:

My grandmother has a bumper sticker on her car that says, "Sexy Senior Citizen." You don't want to think of your grandmother that way, do you? Out entering wet shawl contests. Makes you wonder where she got that dollar she gave you for your birthday.

On Award Shows:

Can you believe how many award shows they have now? They have awards for commercials. The Cleo Awards, a whole show full of commercials. I taped it and then I fast-forwarded through the whole thing.

On Phone-In Polls:

You know those shows where people call in and vote on different issues? Did you ever notice there's always like 18 percent that say "I don't know"? It costs 90 cents to call up and vote. Why they're voting I don't know. "Honey, I feel very strongly about this. Give me the 'phone." Then they say into the telephone, "I don't know!" and they hang up looking proud. Sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe you're not sure about.

On Answering Machines:

Did you ever hear one of these corny, positive messages on someone's answering machine? "Hi, it's a great day and I'm out enjoying it right now. I hope you are too. The thought for the day is 'Share the love.' Beep." "Uh, yeah. This is the VD clinic calling. Speaking of being positive, your test is back. Stop sharing the love."

Andy Rooney calls it like it is most of the time. Thanks for sharing this - made me have a good old laugh.

Those were funny. He always said clever things on his episodes on 60 minutes.

You know, I never realized how funny he was until I saw it in print! (I find him really annoying to listen to, his voice just grates on me.)

Thanks for that post, Joe. I love Andy Rooney! Hope you've read his books. They are equally as entertaining. This post was a good diversion, since Enterprise is on holiday hiatus.

I'm happy you've all enjoyed this thread!


P.S.: Deb 25, I guess the Enterprise crew found a nice pleasure-planet for the holidays. Maybe Sub-Commander T'Pol will get drunk on some otherwise-innocuous beverage and be the life of the party. I can hear her rattling off hilarious one-liners in front of startled humans at some holo-beach: "I was going to play pin the tail on the donkey, but I didn't want to make an ass of myself! Get it? Donkey? Ass? Where's that Coca-Cola?" Or not.

Joe, more likely she's hunkered down in some corner complaining about noxious odors.

The crew are staggering back aboard even as we speak! It seems somebody left the water running in the kitchen.
