Nothing Says Fitness Like a Vein-encrusted Asshole

Bodybuilder #1: Yeah, Andy called me earlier and said that he’s dropping weight so quickly he might have to come into the competition as a lightweight.
Bodybuilder #2: There is no way that Andy can do that. I mean, he was a lightweight last year. That’s not how it works.
Bodybuilder #1: I know, he needs to really cut down on the cardio. I mean, when you have totally ripped glutes, and you have huge veins on top of those glutes, you know you’re ready for the show.
Bodybuilder #2: But whatever, he will look incredible.
Bodybuilder #1: Yes he will.

Assault and Wednesday-One-Liners

Father-of-the-year: My son. He came home with a swollen eye. I asked him why and he said another boy hit him. I asked him if he hit him back and he said, ‘No.’ I asked him why and he said, ‘Because that would hurt him.’ So I said, ‘He’s hurting you, isn’t he?’ So I told him to hit him back. That’s how the world is. Do you think when he starts going to school he’ll catch on?

Something Like That

Girl #1: I am, like, so sick of eating matzah!
Girl #2: I’m not Jewish, but I like to eat it.
Girl #1: Do you know why the Jews eat matzah at passover?
