WTF?

TITS,TIRES, OR TECHNOLOGY: My brother once laid this on me shortly after his future ex-wife blew up the 400 engine in their Blazer. “If it has tits or tires- it will give you trouble.” My thinking was that he had neglected to check the oil in a good, long time. I’m thinking we ought to… Read more »

    With all of the acronyms  texters and tweeters use to qualify their sentiments, my wife and I use the above on a regular basis.  I could say that I coined it quite a few years ago, but you never know what the actual source may be.  My late father in law and I used to… Read more »
