Great one too, thank you for sharing!
Good one; thank you for sharing that.
There was a PC game CD that I lent to a teacher in school, but I never got it back. Unfortunately, it was lost or damaged (I don't remember the exact details). But it was no big deal.
The one that I found the funniest was:
51. When Canada's Northwest Territories considered renaming itself in the 1990s, one name that gained support was "Bob."
