Winter is coming

I am not sure if being the hottest year on record had anything to do with the harsh winter that preceded it, but it surely was memorable as a friend of mine told me later:

On a bitterly cold winter's morning him and his wife were listening to the radio during breakfast.

They heard the announcer say, “We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through.”

So the good wife went out and moved her car as instructed.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, “We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through.”

The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast when the radio announcer says, “We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park.....” Then the power went off.

The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, “I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplows can get through?”

Then, with all the love and understanding in his voice that men who are married to blondes always exhibit, the husband replied: “Why don't you just leave the bloody car in the garage this time?”

    ... and yes, I agree with Flinn, that pic is pure madness

    I quite like Sean Bean, he has the habit of playing in movies that spawn phrases that are well remembered. 'One does not simply walk into Mordor' - anyone? While his part in these two movies was relatively short he managed to perform memorable death sequences

    Liked the 'Sharpe' movies as well - so no surprise I took a (cheek in tongue) shine to this pic, I guess.
