My new couch

I went to a furniture store earlier this week looking for a large couch.

The saleslady showed me a nice one and said, "This couch will seat 5 people without any problems!"

I began laughing uncontrollably and asked, "Where the hell am I going to find 5 people without any problems?!"

1. That's a good one.

And even if you could find the 5 people without problems you wouldn’t want to sit that close to anyone right now.

5. I've been couch

shopping for weeks. At 6' 4" plus an 80 lb catahoula ain't easy... I guess the wife should be there too.
But by GOD I will use that line when given that statement yet again.
Must be in the couch salesperson handbook.

7. I have the opposite height problem

when searching for a couch. I am 5'1" and if the depth of the seat is too great, my legs dangle like a child. If I sit forward so they don't dangle, then my back hurts after a while. I look for couches with seating areas that are not too high and not set too far back. Then I try sitting on them to see if the cushions are comfortable - and firm enough that I don't sink down into them.

OTOH, I always have enough length to lie down on them. Hell, I can use a love seat for that.

10. As funny as it is, what is keping me laughing

is that it remined me of another joke

Which involved a military unit having suffered some casualries, including the loss of a Corporal Peters, who had been very popular.

The unit made its way to a bawdy house - the OIC was greeted by the madam and asked how many of them there were -

He answered, "Well, Ma'am, there are 31 of us without Peters."
