    JOOS!!!! They're everywhere, saw dozens at my local supermarket here in Malaysia!







    Aside from the shocking photography . . . what did you expect?

    Fifteen views and not a single comment . . . I guess I thought it would be funnier than that!

    Sigh, back to the drawing board

    Maybe if you started putting threads in the right place rather than dumping everything in the Lounge, people might be more prepared to laugh or talk about modern medical miracles?

    This one was posted in the Lounge because of the discussions re. Jews and the like and the propensity of some to call them Joos . . . Should I have placed it in Issues?

    So, the modern miracle thread should be in which forum? Medical? Do we have one?

    Personally, I wouldn't have bothered, but maybe Jokes & Funny Stories would be better than Issues (not that there's much difference at times).

    If it's a seriousish thread, then yes.

    Health and Hospitals or something similar.

    funny, maybe? yesterday needed med cert for Thai drivers licence, walking about looking for a doctor and finally found one; tomorrow I present my forms completed by the dr at the "Phuket Erectile Dysfunction and Impotence Clinic" - first place i found after leaving MoT.
    This will become part of my bureaucratic 'permanent record'. I'll live with it.

    That's the thing about the TD mods sense of humour, they totally miss the fact that putting a thread into JOKES ruins the joke.

    Better than in the Teakdoor Kitchen where you'd probably put it.

    My reasoning as well . . .

    These weren't supposed to be just 'oh, a photo. Look and laugh'. I actually wanted to start a discussion . . . but, oh well . . .

    he posted it in the nearest post box, of course

    anyway, whilst the picture was not really funny, a bit laboured even, it belongs in the lounge until the whole thread gets fuked up and moved to MKP

    It wasn't supposed to be funny, per se, it was meant to be a lighthearted commentary on some of the non so lighthearted discussions about Zionism, Israel and the like.

    failed!

    !. A discussion like that will never be ligh-hearted.

    2. Joos is for Juice not Jews.

    EXACTLY! You've seen the light-hearted side of the Joos/Jews/Juice issue I had aimed to highlight.


    The photo above: JOOS . . .
    What some odd people here call Jews: JOOS


    There's the connection

    Grape Juice . . . The Malay word for 'juice' is 'joos', which in itself is rather funny as they have no diplomatic relations with Israel and travel to Israel is stamped in their passport as being prohibited . . .

    The irony is palpable

    I was expecting a Jew-bashing thread.

    I like the joke.
