Halloween yard display understood the next morning.

Oh, now I get it. It was like this. The dummy in a Favre Vikings jersey was the equivalent of a Frankenstein or mummy.
This is the day that this town, this state, the whole Packers fan base has been either waiting for or dreading, and the mere anticipation of it in Green Bay has spawned celebrations and angst, contests and consternation.

"We've gotten more than 1,700 suggestions about what the city should do" to mark the occasion, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt said. "We asked people for tasteful suggestions, so about 500 of them were eliminated right away."

Only 500 out of 1,700? I'm a little dissapointed in my fellow Packer fans.

I do hope the Brett receives a very loud and positive welcome. So much terrible football before him, and so much fun and enthusiasm after he arrived.

And then I hope he throws some interceptions and loses.

Yeah, I know what you mean, Professor. One of my enduring conceits from high school is that there isn’t a joke I don’t get. But as I said, that’s a conceit.

That’s because there are a lot of sports celebrity jokes that I don’t get. And there are probably a bunch of Britney Spears jokes I don’t get, either.

But I do get this joke:

Q: What’s purple and commutes?

A: An abelian grape.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

phew!!!

[catches breath]

Sorry, I know it’s early in the morning but that one just kills me.

wv = promen. THAT'S NOT FUNNY!!!

The day Wade Boggs showed up at Fenway in a Yankee uniform was a day of infamy.

You know what? Let’s give it a whirl. I’m supposed to be cleaning the air filter cells right now but I don’t feel like it.

So let’s invent a joke.

Hmmmmmmmm . . .

Q: What do a Brittney Spaniel and a Britney Spears have in common?

A: Give up? One comes on command and the other’s a dog.

Okay, okay, okay. That wasn’t all that funny and maybe it’s sexist or a bit mean-spirited or something. But look, we’re strictly amateur, over here!

Hey, Britney!!! Call me?

Q: What do Brett Favre and a Britney Spears have in common?

Schmitt should count himself lucky. Had he asked on an internet forum, he would've gotten 170,000 suggestions and needed to eliminate 169,995 of them.
