  • Funniest Thing ever published in Turning Wheels

    A number of us worked in gas stations as youngsters. If you are fortunate enough to be one of them, you know how much you learn about life and human nature when so employed.

    This is especially true in the summertime, when the days are long and hot and it seems like forever for the pop machine to get the beverages cold enough so you can pour a small bag of Tom's peanuts into your Coke / Pepsi / Mountain Dew / Sunkist Orange / Grapette or what-have-you for your afternoon snack.

    Having experienced that wonderful life too long ago, this selection from the September 1996 Turning Wheels is, I believe, the funniest thing SDC has ever published in the magazine. (Ironically, it was not listed in Humor in the Turning Wheels Index. Rather, it was under Nostalgia. It needs to be cross-referenced both places, IMHO. )

    Enjoy it again, or for the first time:



    (Kent, if you are on the forum, please identify yourself. This remains a masterpiece.) BP

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    Bob - I believe that Kent relocated to Farmington, New Mexico, many some years ago. If he contacts you, ask him about the time the steering wheel came off his stock car at the Horizon Speedway in turn four in El Paso.

      'Will do, Don; thanks. Do you know if Kent is "on" the forum? BP
