Humour: depression help-line

I was so  depressed last night thinking about the economy and everything crazy going on in my life.

I called the Suicide Hotline.

I got a call center in Pakistan.

I told them I was  suicidal.

They got all excited and asked  if I could drive a  truck…

I answered “no”.

They said they could still help if I just wore their special underwear.

  1. Are you old enough to remember Joe Btfsplk ?
    Joe Btfsplk, the world’s worst jinx, in this excerpt from the March 20, 1947 strip
    Joe Btfsplk was a character in the satirical comic strip Li’l Abner by cartoonist Al Capp (1909–1979). He’s well-meaning, but is the world’s worst jinx, bringing disastrous misfortune to everyone around him. A small, dark rain cloud perpetually hovers over his head to symbolize his bad luck. Hapless Btfsplk and his ever-present cloud became one of the most iconic images in Li’l Abner.
    One storyline in the early 1970s features him trapping his cloud in a special anti-pollutant jar. Joe becomes romantically involved with a gal for the first time—until her crazed ex-boyfriend shows up to kill him. Joe reluctantly opens the jar and releases his cloud in order to take care of the boyfriend, and wistfully realizes that he wasn’t meant for any other kind of life. As he returns to his normal, loner existence, his cloud once again in tow, he is for the moment satisfied to be who he really is.
    “How else would you pronounce it?” – Al Capp
    According to Al Capp, btfsplk is a rude sound. During public lectures, Capp demonstrated this phatic sound by closing his lips, leaving his tongue sticking out, and then blowing out air, which is colloquially called a “raspberry” or Bronx cheer.
