Well, I know we all have better things to do, but then again, sometimes nothing beats a good laugh.

Here's a thread I came across that I just HAD to link to here, it's SO funny!

Who else has got some?

RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

I'm laughing just *thinking* about some I've read. I may have to cross post over in Decorating. I remember Johnmari linking to a hilarious post about "dogs in elk", and someone else linked to another one about someone who tried to wax their bikini line and glued their um...cheeks together.

Then there's the one talking about toilets. Don't even want to go there!

The only thing I know about roses is that they smell heavenly and I should get them for my anniversary every year.

I am crying and wiping my eyes after reading the Big Stinking Mess thread. I don't know when I've laughed so hard and I hope none of my upwind neighbors decide to brew alfalfa tea

RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

Oh I am laughing out loud..AGAIN! First, reno-fan, I do remember the original post and then all the subsequent references to "hoo hoos and "ding dongs"on later posts..just too funny. The "Pappu's big Stinkin' Mess" is hilarious, too!
Wish I could remember all of them that have had me howling, but better than any of the joke forwards ever received! Thanks guys! lc

RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

Does anyone remember the "Boxers, briefs or commando" thread by "Tracktor"? It was in another GW forum that someone had linked to. I thought it was so funny, I saved it. A bunch of poor, dear fellows talking a bout their chafing "nether regions." I don't know how to link a word doc, though. I can see it when I google for it, but I can't seem to call it up. It was pretty funny. If someone knows how to post it, I'll email it!!


 o
RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

Oh man. The Big Stinking Mess was the funniest thing I have read in ages!

"Can you build four walls around it and let an advanced, future, civilization deal with it?"

Oh it hurts. It hurts. I haven't laughed in a while and my laughing muscles are flabby.

I used to be a consulting rosarian and rose show judge, and I did personally brew up a mess of alfalfa tea once. I didn't put the lid on the garbage can tight enough and mosquitoes got in there and used the brew to lay eggs in.

When I removed the lid and went to empty the can, it was unpleasant.

boxers, briefs or commando

Posted by Tracktor (My Page) on Sat, Jul 16, 05 at 0:16

After a full day in the seat in the heat (mowing with the GT 5000 and transporting logs and rocks with the Kubota CUT), I got out of the shower to find painful irritation from the constant contact with the seams of my underwear. I was wondering if there was any wisdom to be had from the more seasoned veterans who have logged more seat time in the heat. (Does JD make special underwear? Whose is better Sears or JD?) LOL. Actually I'm serious about the problem.

Tractor:

You have various choices.

Use an inflatable doughnut like hemmoroid users have.

Use a "U" shaped foam cushion with the open portion to the front to keep jewels from sweating and free of tittilating pressure.

Get into SM and have the wife/girlfriend beat the he!! out of your soft butt with a cat-o-nine-tails whip to toughen up your sorry soft butt.

The most expensive alternative is to buy one of those pnuematic seats and mount it on your tractor.

On a more serious note, those of who ride ATVs in the heat have been known to sprinkle liberal amounts of talcum or baby powder or even good ol' cornstarch in our pants before embarking. The irritation you speak of comes from bouncing around on those vinyl seats in damp sweaty pants. The cloth starts to have a sandpaper effect on your skin. The powder helps act as a dry lube and minimize chafing as well as absorb sweat. Not as hi-tech as the air-ride or as fun as the cat-o-nine tails, but a lot less obvious than the doughnut! And when you finish, you can toss your pants in the oven and make biscuits!

The only tractor logo underwear that I have seen is John Deere .
I guess that John Deere figured that since they had all of their lawn tractor buyers already "bent over" ,that the least they could do is have a fresh change of underwear available for them , at a price of course.

You guys are funny! Hey Tracktor, if your underwear is rubbing you raw, just don't wear any underwear. What could be more simple than that? Then if your pants rub you raw... well, I hope you got somebody to come bail you out.

theres a guy over on another forum that has the problem sorted.
He sits on a towel on the seat absolutely butt naked. Doubt he gets problems with clothing.

I do agree that chaffing on your deck is a real irritation. I try not to let it rub up or bump into anything, but it's so darn big, I just can't help it sometimes. It also helps to keep your deck clean. I know there are a lot of guys on this forum that say you should never let your deck get wet, but I take that as just bragging about their ability to find someone to blow it off for them. A little water never hurt any deck.


RE: boxers, briefs or commando

Posted by: wolfe1 Z-5 Chicagoland (My Page) on Sat, Jul 16, 05 at 8:01

I lube the undercarriage with olive oil, wear a plastic grocery bag, red cowboy boots, and a large foam hat from the carnival. No chaffing here!


RE: boxers, briefs or commando

Posted by: Mike_in_VA z7 VA (My Page) on Sat, Jul 16, 05 at 9:25

Tracktor,

Find a pair of synthetic shorts used for working out, hiking or other sports. Synthetic fabrics will not hold the sweat like cotton and look like your average pair of shorts. The type I am describing will also have a liner sewn in that is also synthetic that performs the same function as the "brief" style of underwear (much like a swimsuit). I'm not talking about lycra tight cycling shorts, although they will do the job too.

Cycling shorts will be the only style that strategically manages the seams in addition to the moisture. You can also buy those in "short" style that is typical of what a mountain-biker would wear.

Good luck


RE: boxers, briefs or commando

Posted by: bunnyman Thumb of MI (My Page) on Sat, Jul 16, 05 at 9:39

Quick fix is to wear your underware inside out. Never did figure out why underware makers put those big chunky flesh eating seams inside. Silk boxers are probably the most comfortable I've found. They are pricey but you don't have to wear them inside out. Bouncing around on a tractor is pretty hard on a body. Farmers around here are like the 9000 size John Deere because they ride smooth.

Hey wolfe1 ! I can't imagine... would you share a picture?

"And when you finish, you can toss your pants in the oven and make biscuits!"

Hey Woodsrunner- this is a serious topic- I don't feel it is appropriate to bring up baked goods when man posted a serious issue. Your suggestion of Tlac or powder is dangerous- I had a nieghbor tried that after a large meal of brococoli, beans and 7 cans of Mountain Dew, the dust cloud from the talc blinded him temporarily and he drove down a cliff- the video is bad but its a GT 5000 in the video-

Tried them all,commando carries a certain exciting risk factor but when really hot,Big Jim and the twins can get somewhat clammy and sticky.There is a clothing line available at spoting goods stores called UnderArmor,supposed to wick away moisture.I don't have any so I can't be sure if the stuff works but thats what I'm told anyhow.

Spend more time on your tractors...your hide will condition itself. You have to convince the wife that this is the reason you are out on the machinery all day.

Seriously, when I worked in a shop that liked to save money by turning down the A/C and not getting stool cushions, I found I just adjusted to it over time.

On the "Ride a tractor naked" thing. Buddy of mine was hooking up his brush hog Saturday and got into the poison ivy real bad. Something to think about before going naked...


RE: boxers, briefs or commando

Posted by: Eighteenlmslcsr WI (My Page) on Mon, Jul 18, 05 at 1:11

Actually,
Tracktor, I've spent quite a bit of time and non science based effort on this topic and have found a few sure things.

A> Your gona chaff the sweateeer you get
B> Riding with heavy clothing only makes it worse (for GOD sakes leave the kilt, knit goods and wool at home where it belongs).

C>On a serious side try sewing a seat cover out of lite cotton. Wear soft cotton briefs. Talc or powder yourself really good. Wear simming style synthetic material. Did you remember to get off the tracktor every 1/2hr to shift and adj. Also dont be afraid to shake your self out a bit. And wash and dry that soft cotton seat cover.

Why the soft cotton seat cover? Have found it wicks up sweat and keeps your posterior soft and dry.

If the prob is real bad use a womans pad or two under the seat cushion.

With all the foolish answers to this serious question I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the only true accessory that will cure the problem. Namely the "Peugot Bidet Tractor Seat". During those "hot days" this seat applies a mist of temperature controlled water to those "sensitive areas" as you are working your land keeping you fresh as a daisy. French mustard farmers have used them for years with great success and you know what those people are like!

RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

I originally posted my "move in diary" over on the building forum. The thread's long since fallen off but here's a link to the log of my trials and travails in moving into a brand-new semi-custom house. I just re-read it for the first time in months and it's still pretty hilarious in a Wile E. Coyote way. For those who've never built a new house, builders charge outrageous prices for upgrades, so I took standard carpet everywhere but the kitchen and master bath, then immediately tore it all out and upgraded.

Here's the diary. Amazingly enough, I had yet another water leak a few months after the last entry. I should go back and make a few more entries. The TKO will catch a few references to kitchen stuff, like missing holes in the granite, un-level fridge doors, crooked backsplash tiles, etc.

RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

Hey reno_fan, how's the real estate business treating you these days? What's funny is that the events in the diary aren't embellished or exaggerated at all; actually things are downplayed somewhat since I didn't have the inclination to go into even more painful detail (I skipped stuff like getting three bathrooms redone and an interior wall torn down in the middle of all the other activity, and just about every contractor commenting "Is this a new house?").

What's really funny is the number of folks over on the building forum who said they know from personal experience that stuff like that happens exactly like I described it!

RE: Hilarious Threads on Other Forums

LOL!!! "Is this a new house?" What a horrid question!! (to have to answer....)
