Dirty Joke

The Boss was in quandary. He had to fire somebody. He had it narrowed down to one of two people, Debra or Jack. It was an impossible decision. They were both super workers.

Rather than flip a coin, he decided he would fire the first one who used the water cooler the next morning. Debra came in the next morning with a horrible hang-over after partying all night. She went to the cooler to take an aspirin.

The boss approached her and said, "Debra, I've never done this before, but I have to lay you or Jack off."

"Could you jack off?" she says. "I feel like shit."

The word 'dingleberry' came up in a conversation last week, but for the life of me I can't remember what I was talking about.

Although it might just be a joke perpetrated by National Lampoon, there was supposed to have actually been a singles bar in Boston back in the 70s and maybe 80s called Dingleberry's. Their alleged slogan was "Singles on the mingle meet at the Dingle."

A Dingleberry's matchbook appeared along with a story in the Doug Kenney memorial issue of National Lampoon, which would have put it around 1980.

Doug Kenney was a writer for and founder of National Lampoon (the issue I'm thinking of was a collection of his work), as well as one of the writers of Animal House, in which he played Stork (the one they thought was brain damaged his first year and who spoke the immortal line: "Well, what the hell we supposed to do, ya mo-ron?")

It was a memorial issue because in 1980 Doug Kenney fell to his death off a cliff in Hawaii. In his memorial issue they included a cartoon that had a picture of a cliff with a sign that said "Doug Kenney slipped here."

Funny what things stick with you 25 years later.

Neal - I wouldn't try too hard to remember the conversation if I were you.

Jack - Very interesting. I remember Stork. Great movie.
