It's Okay—We Brought Our Inside Alcohol

Now you're making jokes my dad would laugh at. He's like 70.

This is obviously a bar with xenoholophobic tendencies.

I didn't laugh. I'm like 60.

Wow, 70! And he still laughs? That is way too old to have a sense of humor. And anything he would find funny has to be really lame, right?

God, fuckin' 70!

SEVENTY! What the fuck!

Hey, I hope I'll still be laughing at jokes like this when I'm ninety*. The memory may be the first thing to go, but hopefully the sense of humor will be the last...the benefit there would be that people could keep me amused by telling me the same joke over and over again.

*Assuming I make it to ninety, although some days I feel like I've passed that.

It becomes clear why Terry gets to listen to Bjork on road trips...

It does look like they would have had space for "NO ALCOHOL PURCHASED ELSEWHERE PERMITTED" or "ONLY ALCOHOL PURCHASED HERE PERMITTED".

@6: Because Bjork's great?

@7 How do you spell oxymoron, again?

Also: "But the church has introduced its own bill, that would make public entities, like cities, towns, and the state, open to similar law suits, saying that would only be fair."

While I heartily agree that a public entity should be liable if it is complicit in the ongoing sexual abuse of children, a) that would only be 'fair' if the Catholic Church starts electing its officials based on the votes of all citizens who are not felons and it adopts a legally-enforceable constitution governing its behavior (making it a public entity instead of a private one), and b) public entities are protected from these sorts of suits to prevent the waste of money defending cases where a public employee has done something wrong and the plaintiff decides to sue the public entity for which sie worked as well because it has a lot more money and 'should have known what was happening' (specifically, this opens public entities to a lawsuit for every time someone is a victim of a crime that the entity failed to prevent and over which the entity has jurisdiction; these would inevitably fail, but they would need to be defended, because people are greedy assholes who file frivolous lawsuits all the time) and because their money is public money that is, by statute, only to be spent in the public interest - there is a reasonable objection to mandated tax payments being spent on a settlement resulting from a crime with which almost all of the public had nothing to do. By all means, sue the guilty party and any officials that enabled hir behavior.

Jeez, that's your idea of humor? The sign is obviously outside a bar or club of some sort. It's equivalent to a theater entrance sign that reads "No outside refreshments permitted."
11
Oh, my apologies. I guess what I meant to say is that this joke plays to the Jay Leno demographic.
12
The stupidest warning sign I've ever seen was posted in the 1990s outside one of the hospitals on First Hill: "ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES NOT PERMITTED."
13
Gee whiz, Demetria, Dan's just being silly. He knows perfectly well what the sign meant.

I laughed! And I'm, like, 40.

Did a Horse walk into the bar and have a bartender ask "Why the long face?"?
15
@10 I always bring my inside refreshments to theaters. It's their fault for charging 3-5 times what the refreshments they offer are worth.
16
@14 No, a rabbi, a priest, and a minister walked into the bar. The bartender said, "Is this a joke?"
