ice chunks, out of place cliches and other quirky things

The past few days have been very interesting.

First a guy I work with received a hand written piece of spam that's pretty common. You know the one that says, I'm from Africa and my father is rich but died, I need to get your bank account number to help me get the money out of the country, blah, blah, blah. Well, this one was handwritten and mailed from Ghana and even had a Ghyana stamp on it. I looked up the conversion and it was about 50 cents to send it via airmail. The funniest thing is that the person who wrote it (not in cursive) wrote the name, and screwed up and had to scratch it out and write it again.

Second, someone I know overate at lunch the other day, and when asked why he did it, he said he was under a lot of pizza pressure. I don't know if it was just the situation or what, but I was dying.

Third. A few of us were sitting around talking about keeping our cars clean and getting gunk off of them. The expert said, use peanut butter to get road tar off. And the other guy immediately responded with "Not chunky, right?" Again a laugher. My side hurt I was laughing so hard.

Finally there was the funniest instance of blowing chunks I've ever witnessed last night. On our way to the hospital for my fiance to be monitored we were chatting and joking and while chewing up some ice she laughed so hard she shot an ice chunk out of her nose. I had to work very hard not to need to pull over I was laughing so hard, it's a good thing there wasn't much traffic around.
