Due to the overwhelming positive response to my Model T Memes and Funnies thread, and the fact that it's been brought up, it's about time to start Part II! The first one is getting so long that it's hard to scroll all the way to the bottom!

As always, post anything funny that's T related here!

Here's the link to Part I: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/708324/721261.html?1507509975

Here's one to get things going!

Duey,
Sometimes, they're funny to me and then when I see them the next day, I just groan and wonder if I should bother to post it. Obviously, different people have different funny bones. Confession time, they are quick to make once inspiration hits and the entire week is already done. So, they are just trickling out at this point.
Vern

I hear you Vern. I X'd out of my response on another thread a little while ago... My own thinking is that I can be a "thread killer" sometimes.
Inspired? One should post.
"Duesenberg indeed!" Hehehe! You nailed it! No top, no windshield, that look and OH to be able to sit on THOSE seats!
Indeed! :-)


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Vern (Vieux Carre) on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 10:32 am:

Duey, yes, inspired.
Sometimes, God can sent inspiration as a message of warning or correction. There was a four year period in which God had me pastor a small church. The sermon every week is typically three points and a poem with illustrations. The illustrations came from observing human nature, character flaws, and the frailty of mankind then making pointed observations, sometimes in humor, while stating the obvious. It is healthy to laugh at our own faults since we all can identify with shortcomings and perhaps adjust our own behavior patterns. For example, I hope everyone has taken the time to insure their Model T and if you have not, bad things can happen. This is a hint at the cartoon for later today.

My wife and I, over the years, enjoy seeing old stuff, museums, plantation homes, Williamsburg, Va., caves, antique shops, and old movies, mostly to see 50's & 60's cars in order to try to identify them, like a game.

More cutting humor to keep our minds sharp. My shop scissors were use by my Grandmother to cut bandages out of sheets during the War.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Wayne Sheldon, Grass Valley, CA on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 08:54 pm:

Since we can't seem to cut ourselves away from the scissors thing.
About thirty years ago, I was driving down the road, saw, and avoided running over a nice fancy pair of scissors laying in the road. I stopped the truck, because I hate flat tires, ran back and picked up the scissors so nobody else would need to avoid them, or maybe get a flat tire. When I picked them up, I could see that had been run over more than a couple times, and weren't so nice looking. But the handles were still intact, and the blades had no real damage whatsoever. They are still in my garage, and my favorite scissors for many tasks.
Then again, I also have a large screwdriver, missing its handle. I use it often for tasks where I might otherwise damage a good screwdriver. It was retrieved from my tire when I repaired a flat. The entire roughly eight inch long square shaft screwdriver (missing handle) was INSIDE my rear tire, apparently having been kicked up by a front tire and placing itself perfectly in front of the rear tire as it made contact. Objects one might expect to lay flat can and occasionally do jump up and cause flat tires.

I'm doing a wool upholstery job right now. My wife suggested - for the first time in 52 years of marriage - that I use her Gingher sewing scissors. They cut beautifully, but also needle sharp on the tips and a real hazard for a guy with clumsy fingers.

David D: Another left hander comes out of the closet ? I grew up as a left handed kid using right handed scissors (in my right hand). In latter years I was given a pair of left handed scissors. They were impossible to use after having used only right handers all my life.

Dick,
I too find left handed scissors a bit clumsy to use, spent too much time adapting to the right handed ones!
Left-handedness runs in the family, my Grandmother was left-handed, some of my cousins are too, however I'm the only one of my siblings, although my next-older brother is a bit ambidextrous.
BTW, at my Grandmother's insistence, I was Never "in the closet" she was quite adamant about "leave them alone, let them use whatever hand they want!" She had had her knuckles rapped too many times in an effort to make her right handed!
A few years ago (decades?) a college art instructor gave me some tests and told me I was a "True Left-Hander," and was using the right side of my brain as the dominate side.

I actually did this once to check the gas level in a car and couldn't determine how much was in the tank. Two minutes later, after nothing had happened and realizing the foolishness, I wondered why I wasn't severely burned.

Is that from a Harold Lloyd movie ?? Great detail of the gas cap and the metal under-seat panel. If it's the movie I'm thinking of, it was made in 1920, Harold's "tin grasshopper" had to be no newer - maybe it was new ?

Yes Rich, it is Harold Lloyd in 1920, movie: "Get Out and Get Under".

G. R., first there are no tabs lying on the ground and second, the cans have relief holes for air return. I don't drink so don't ask how I know this.

Vern when dad drank beer it was before "Pop tops" or "pull tabs" you used a "Church key" to open the Tin can and you did put two holes in the can, then in a show of manliness when you finished your beer you crushed the tin can with your hand. I never learned how to do that as aluminum cans came out when I was too young to drink!

One time in the Virginia mountains we had a church key to open soda bottles but we forgot a can opener to open the can of baked beans. So, I used the church key and went all around the bean can until we could consume its contents.

Picture this in your heads while reading this. A true,funny (but not because it happened to me) story. I had to patch the bottom of my gas tank so I cleaned it out with "Goof Off" first. I proceeded to start cutting the bad section out. I stopped to peek down through the gas cap opening to make sure I wasn't cutting anything I shouldn't be, and since the Goof Off fumes were strong, I put my mouth close to the opening and blew air into the tank. A flame shot out of the opening and singed my eyebrows/mustache to the point I had to shave what was left of my "stach". My wife almost peed her pants when she saw me. you would think during the first cut from the sparks, it would have gone off like a bomb (literally). Maybe because the sparks from the cutting wheel were on the outside of the tank? Dunno, but a word to the wise.

I too learned what a piston sees while working on a gas tank. I singed a little hair and woke my sister up. I have been very careful during the 50 years since then and happy to have survived.
I feel a little sad for those who have missed some of these exhilarating near death experiences.

An old guy told us once that you could weld a gas tank if you filled it with water first! Well we believed him and tried it, the steam pressure created ruptured the tank where it wasn't leaking before! We never listened to him again!

Once I tried to move the filler neck of a gas tank. I filled it with water and drained it and filled it again. I couldn't get it hot enough with water in it so I drained it again and took a welding torch to the tank and it blew up! Even water won't get all the fumes out. I am lucky I didn't get hurt. After the tank jumped off the ground it must have burnt out all the fumes because I could then weld the filler and patch the old location. I wouldn't recommend anyone else try this. I was only about 18 years old then and not as experienced as now.

In a past life, I worked in a Welding/Machine shop. One of the things we made were fuel tanks to mount in pickup beds for refueling tractors and such. This was in the early '70's when the farmers around here were using M Farmalls and John Deere 60's. We wouldn't fix a gas tank unless it was one that we made. We would run a hose from an exhaust pipe of a running car into the tank. The exhaust fumes (CO-2)expelled the gas fumes and made the tank safe to weld. Fast forward a few years when I was working for a farmer and we needed to repair an Anhydrous tank, read high pressure. I hooked up a hose to an older GMC truck and let run for a bit. Took the cutting torch to it and it went off like a flute through the many outlets that we had opened. Couldn't figure out what was going on after trying it a couple of times. Finally realized that the truck was running way too rich and was filling the tank with gas fumes. One of those life learning experiences. :-( Dave
