• Doctor tells you your weight would be perfect for a man 17 feet tall.

• You are responsible for a slight but measurable shift in the earth's axis.

• You decide to take a little nap and wake up in mid-July.

• World's fattest man sends you a telegram, warning you to "back off!"

• Every escalator you step on immediately grinds to a halt.

• You realize that's not sweat coming out of your pores -- that's gravy!

Do you ever watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on TV check this out:


Kathleen Caronna might want to think about buying a lucky horseshoe or something. First, in 1997, she was the victim of the infamous Cat in the Hat incident. When the Cat balloon got swept astray of the parade route by high winds, it ran into a lamp post and knocked it down -- right in to Caronna, who was in a coma for a month afterward. She sued the city, Macy’s, and the lamp post manufacturer for $395 million and settled for an undisclosed amount. Then, in 2006, a plane carrying Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor crashed into the Belaire Apartments building. Caronna’s apartment was one of the ones hit, although she wasn’t home at the time.

In 1986, there were two incidents: a 61-year-old bagpiper had a fatal heart attack while marching in the parade, and a spectator fell out the fourth story window he was watching from and landed on someone below.

In 1942, the parade was canceled and the balloons were reduced to rubber for the war efforts. The Red Cross War Fund of Greater New York received a check for $12 for the 650 pounds of rubber.

In 1957, a downpour caused the hat on the Popeye balloon to fill up with rain. The added weight made the balloon veer off course, and eventually the cap could hold no more water and dumped gallons and gallons on surprised spectators.

In 1993, the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon hit a lamppost and basically exploded. Part of the lamppost fixture fell and broke the shoulder of an off-duty policeman standing below.

In 2006, two sisters were attacked by M&Ms. The ropes of the 515-pound balloon promoting the tasty chocolate morsels got caught up on a lamppost. Neither of the girls were hurt too badly -- just some minor scrapes and bruises. In exchange for their ordeal, they received V.I.P. seats in the grandstand and a lifetime supply of M&Ms.

1995 was not the best year the parade ever had. A woman who was seven months pregnant was injured when a float knocked a traffic light into her. Luckily, there were only minor injuries. Another lady fell through a subway grate. And a group of anti-fur protesters stripped down to nothing but Santa hats and tried to join the parade. They were arrested for public lewdness and indecent exposure.

Thanks to the wonder full Don, who often calls me on my SHOW here was ne of his funny Jokes he often passes along with me, YES this one is CLEAN as well LOL THANKS DON!

A blond and a brunette are chatting over coffee. The blonde says, "You know, here lately, I've been experiencing a strange and painful side effect from coffee. I'm fine when I drink it black, but if I put cream or sugar or both in it, I get this horrible stabbing pain in one eye." With that, she took a drink of her coffee. "OW! Darn. See, there it goes again!" And the brunette replied, "Take the spoon out of the cup."
