Friday Funnies: Nude Modeling

The Figure Model An artist had been working on nude portraits for a long time. Every day, he was up early and worked late - bringing perfection with every stroke of his paint brush. As each day passed, he gained a better understanding of the female body and was able to really make his paintings shine. After a month, the artist had become very weary from this non-stop effort and decided to take it easy for the day. Since, Karen, his model, had already shown up, he suggested they merely have a glass of wine and talk - since normally he preferred to do his painting in silence. They talked for a few hours, got to know each other better, and enjoyed each other's company. Then as they were sipping their wine, the artist heard a car arriving outside. He jumped up and said,"OH NO It's my wife! Quick, take off your clothes!" A Compliment A woman standing naked in front of bedroom mirror says to her husband, “I feel fat and I feel ugly, pay me a compliment darling.” T

Ask SunFyre: "If I only had $250 to invest, were should I start, and is it even worth it?"

Our very first Ask SunFyre Anything question comes to us from FerdiFred... "If I only had $250 to invest, were should I start, and is it even worth it?" Investing is definitely worth it. Whether you have $250 or $250,000, the same rules apply. I started investing when I had $2000, and I only invested half of it, nine years ago. Today I have substantial assets by following a few simple rules that I created for myself. RULE #1 -- Never invest money you can't afford to lose. While investing is certainly less risky than lottery tickets or online poker, it is possible to lose your money. It is possible to lose ALL your money. Don't invest any money you absolutely can't afford to lose. Invest in what you know. I know a lot about technology, therefore the first two stocks I bought were Apple Computer and Unisys. At the time both were extraordinary investments, and I took my initial investment of $2000 and doubled it in a short period of time. Decide if you're

New feature: Ask SunFyre Anything

I'm debuting a new feature this week, and hopefully, with a little participation from readers it'll become a regular Thursday event. You get to "Ask SunFyre Anything!" I'll pick the best question each week and give you a detailed answer. It could be about me personally, it could be a "How do I..." question, or you could ask for my opinion on a burning controversial issue. Submit your questions to . Just remember, when asking SunFyre a question, or when proposing marriage... never ask a question that you aren't certain you want answered.

That's Not in My Job Description

Whenever you take a new job, make sure to read the job description thoroughly. Today two of the people who work for me realized that they should've done that. Nicole and Kyley got to remove a tick from my kitten's head . A few months ago we got my daughter a kitten, which she named Dusty. This morning Dusty jumped up on Kyley's lap, and we discovered a little lump on his head. It was just a grayish white thing about the size of a grain of rice. I did a quick Internet search, and realized it could be a tick. After reading " How to Remove a Tick from a Cat " we began the surgery. If you've never removed a tick, here's how it's done. What you'll need: tweezers, rubbing alcohol, a cotton swab, antibacterial ointment, a towel and soap. First, get the towel and wrap it around your cat. It took two people to hold him down, because apparently the tick was a little bit painful. He also has claws, so Kyley's new sweater was the first casualty. (Sh

Friday Funnies: Marriage Counseling

Marriage Counseling Southern Style Earl and Bubba, two good ole boys from Dixie, are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing, and drinking beer, when suddenly Bubba says, "I think I'm going to divorce my wife - she hasn't spoke to me in over 2 months." Earl spits, sips his beer and says, "You better think it over, women like that are hard to find.” The Office Party Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company's Office Party. He is not normally a drinker, but the drinks didn't taste like alcohol at all. He didn't even remember how he got home from the party. As bad as he was feeling, he wondered if he had done something wrong. Jack had to force himself to open his eyes and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. Next to them, a single red rose! Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect o

World of Warcraft Memorial Tribute Video

I stumbled across this video on YouTube. It's actually a memorial tribute made from one player to another, but beyond that the video is awesome if you are a World of Warcraft player. Even if you don't play Warcraft, but you play EverQuest or any other massively multiplayer role-playing game, you're probably understand. I laughed for about 10 minutes. Let's hear what you think in the comments.

Grandma visits Jesus

My grandmother, my kids' great grandmother, came to visit yesterday. She's 82, but still full of life and has a busier schedule than most 25-year-olds I know. She called on Friday and asked to come visit to her great-grandchildren. I'm happy to say, my kids absolutely love her. Before she arrived I was getting the kids excited. My son Jason had painted a picture of a camel and wanted me to have it. I told him he might want to give the painting to Grandma, because she has seen a real camel. He seemed very surprised, so I told him he should ask Grandma about all the amazing trips she has taken. I told him he she has traveled all over the world. "She even has seen where Jesus lived." I told him. "But Jesus lives in heaven." He said, puzzled. "But when Jesus was born, he lived on earth, and was born in a place we now call Israel. Grandma visited Israel last year. You should ask her all about it." I replied. He agreed that would be

The List: The Most Walkable Cities in America

Prevention magazine published a list of the Most Walkable Cities in America. Factors contributing to the ranking were air quality, the percentage of people who walk to work, access to parks, number of athletic shoes sold, and weather. Here's the list: Madison, Wisconsin Austin, Texas San Francisco, California Charlotte, North Carolina Seattle, Washington Henderson, Nevada San Diego, California San Jose, California Chandler, Arizona Virginia Beach, Virginia New York is one of my favorite places, and I'm surprised it didn't make the list. You have an amazing city, and Central Park is a walker's paradise. I'm surprised that none of the Boardwalk Beach towns made the list. Atlantic City may be the only town big enough for their lists, and I can understand why that didn't make the top 10. Still, some of the other little Atlantic Beach towns deserved consideration. Is your city walkable? It's probably a strange question coming from a guy in a wheelchair, b
