Weekend Open Thread: All you need to know edition…

Hey there boys and girls, it is Weekend Open Thread time. This week’s opening meme comes to us courtesy of my buddy Jim Cobb. I had to chop it up because the caption got caught up when it was used as the “featured image” on the post.

If you haven’t checked out my review of Jim’s Prepper’s Long Term Survival Guide, please do so if you are so inclined.

Book Review: Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide 2nd Edition

He’s convalescing  from a pretty bad infection, and is just out of the hospital. If you are the praying sort, please add him to your list.

Laughter is the best medicine, so without further ado, here is this week’s non-themed assortment of memes.

Two Barbie memes does not a WOT theme make.

Barbie Dream Fighter-jet is an interesting concept.

An engine is just a machine that turns money into noise.

What is your “never again”. Mine is SoCo. (Southern Comfort). Despite this…

I do have an interest in knife shows and other events. Which leads me to check the KNIFE Magazine Event  Calendar.

This weekend brings the ABS New England hammer-in.

There is also a celebration at Case Knives this weekend…

Made in Bradford Celebration

Next weekend is the AIK Knife Show, for those of you in or around Missouri.

Speaking of being born male…

My vote is with Cletus Clearwater Revival…

Though Skeeter and the Tweakers is in the running. What say you?

I am guessing it isn’t Buffalo Springfield…

While we are on a run of music memes…

Takes a second.

Boom Rickrolled.

Damn Vader.

A worthy joke Padawan.


That one is actually pretty good. The rest are bad.

But this is the worst…

We are in the process of giving away a couple of Ocaso Strategy knives in our weekly drawing. Del is Token holder #2, joining Stuart B.

I am really enjoying the one that I am reviewing, and Katie and Vince are going to add their thoughts to my review as well.  The remaining two will go to readers. It is a “two token” drawing, meaning that you need to be drawn twice to win. First winner gets first choice. Token-holders carry over to the second drawing, meaning the second person to get drawn twice gets the remaining knife.

Usual rules apply…you get up to 5 entries per week which are your comments and replies. If you are new to the blog, your first comments will be held in moderation until I approve them.

And away we go with the rest of the memey-goodness…


Advertising fail?

Speaking of things terrifying and German…

There is a word in German for that.

Come here Sweetie and help Grandma out.

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

If he could only do something about it.

I split wood for my Great-Uncle.

Things were better in the past.

Pass the bourbon.

It is a lovely house. Let’s do lunch.

I don’t think the girl in the previous meme would share her sandwich.

This is my other favorite illogical food/beverage choice.

“Enjoy every sandwich” – Warren Zevon

“There is no try.” – Yoda

“Those aren’t the tacos you are looking for”. – Obi-Wan. Probably.

Speaking of whales…

Speaking of Wales…

That one is a classic.

Every manual job I ever had.

Del? Are you ok?

Punctuation is important.

Long live the Queen!

My Grandmother’s was green.


That quacks me up.

I can hear the clicks.

What’re you gonna do?

That is about it for this week’s WOT. Have a good weekend, the gathering of next week’s memes begins anew…
