derFunk's freebie Friday: Google Home Mini

Mon Oct 08, 2018 6:55 pm

I occasionally give away things that I get as freebies. This weekend it was a Google Home mini that I got free at Best Buy. It's the darker-toned model, still new in the box, totally sealed and ready to mail to you. Unlike my Witcher 3 giveaway (which was just a code) this is a physical good that I have to mail, so that means the contest is open only to TR posters who had an account prior to 10/1/2018 and live in the continental US. Sorry, Europeans and Canadians. Mexicans. Whoever else.

All you have to do is find a way to make me laugh and post it in the thread no later than noon Central time on Friday, October 12, 2018. A joke, a sketch, a link, a video. Whatever. I'm literally just going to pick my favorite post and go with that. Good luck.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

So a guy walks into a bar. He is immediately disqualified from the limbo contest.

Not really looking for a Home Mini, just wanted to post that.

I see this turning into a thread where everyone who doesn't want the prize posts such and all those who do will sadly continue stalking.

But a little more on topic, this comic got me as it is all too true.

Well I certainly have a style, and you guys have found it: best summed up as "sh*tposting". Good work, everyone. :lol:

Three men walk into a bar. You'd think that the second and third ones would have ducked.

Am I allowed to just dump my top 5 recent favorites?

Venus flytraps
Rubber chicken, waterboarded
Smart pen

Get out of the tank, Arthur

I will pass on the Mini, but hope to set the bar. Bonus image

The Good Place should be pretty funny on it's own, but if you want a sample, here's a clip poking fun at a Florida man.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

From a book I'm reading...

He had a plan. Not just the beginnings of a scheme, this time. A plan. An actual workable plan.
It went thus:
Take pickax. Insert pickax into Manacle's skull. Repeat as required.


^ Cracked me up. The Space Team books are highly recommended.

An Apple server, a Google site, and a Microsoft patch walk into a bar. All the tech nerds run out the back door!

(note that I don't have any use for a Google gizmo and am just doing it for the lulz)

They wouldn't have time. At best, they might briefly witness the Cherenkov radiation before the criticality takes them all.

Why do comets become carnivores when they come to earth? Because they are meat-eat-ors.

You may not think this is that funny but my elemetry-aged kiddo who loves space laughed her behind off.

Dying doesn't make this world dead to us
Breathing doesn't keep the flame alive in us
Dreaming doesn't make time less real for us
One life, one chance, all ephemeral
