    Barcodes


    Why does the Norwegian fleet have barcodes on the sides of their ships?














    So when they come into port, they can “scan da navy in”!!

    A good friend plays Cello in the local symphony. One of her conductors is Japanese and sometimes Japanese have trouble with Rs and Ls. She related to me that this conducted, at his audition rehearsal, said, "Fruits...pray softer."

    The Norwegian submarines also have screen doors. Don't laugh - they keep the big fish out!

    Youse guys!!

    Thanks for the Friday laughs (as long as we offend everyone we offend none . I truly believe that; start with offending myself - four eyed retentive german engineer who designs things that are impossible to fix - and then move on to the rest of us.)

    There was a story about a US Company that made the smallest drill bit and sent it to a German Company to show them what they could do. The response was they drilled a hole in it and sent it back. Madflyer
