While I am still baffled by the grammar, I find it funny that I (uncounsciously and probably wrongly) ended my own sentence with a preposition such as Stitchawl's Nebraskan Retirement Option:

Quote:

4. You end sentences with a preposition: "Where's my coat at."
In my research, I found this to also be common to Texans:

A Texan professor and an Oxford professor are chilling at a conference bar. The Texan professor, bored, looks to the Oxford professor and strikes up a conversation. “So there partner, where y’all from?” Oxford prof. replies, pushing his glasses to his nose: “Well, in reply to your query, I hail from Oxford. In addition, where I come from, we never end our sentences in a preposition.” The Texan prof. blinks once, shrugs his shoulders and drawls, “My apologies! What I mean to say is ‘where y’all from, asshole?’”

( I wasn't sure if you did it on purpose, or not! I thought you might have.....) Oh, and I've been seeing articles go by lately stating that those rules aren't really true, and that some prepositions work just FINE that way, thank you. So dinna fash yersel aboot it.

A farmer goes out and buys a new, young rooster. As soon as he brings him home, the young rooster rushes and services all 150 of the farmers hens. The farmer is impressed. At lunchtime, the young rooster again services all 150 hens. The farmer is not just impressed anymore, he is worried.

Next morning, not only is the rooster servicing the hens but he is servicing the turkeys, ducks even the cow. Later farmer looks out into the barnyard and finds the rooster stretched out, limp as a rag, his eyes closed, dead and vultures circling overhead. The farmer runs out, looks down at the young rooster's limp body and says: "You deserved it, you horny bastard!"

And the young rooster opens one eye, points up at the vultures with his wing, and says, "Shhhh!, they're about to land."

Freya was driving her Chevrolet Vega home in New Mexico when she saw an elderly Apache woman walking along the side of the road. She stopped the car and asked the woman if she would like a lift?

With a silent nod, the woman climbed into the car. Freya tried in vain to make conversation with the Apache woman.

The old Apache looked closely at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a red gift bag on the seat next to Freya.

'What's in the bag?' asked the old woman.

'It's a bottle of whisky that I got for my husband.'

The Apache woman was silent for another minute or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, 'Good trade.'

As a former Chevrolet Vega owner, this is where you lost me. Mine never ran long enough to get me home from anywhere.

My wife has just nominated me to do the ice bucket challenge. But I'm a little confused.

I remember those. You had to get your car home because it never got you there.

A friend of mine had one. Every time he picked a few of us on board he had to change his braking distance habits because the car would always stop a few yards further than expected. We affectionally called it "The Scud Missile" because it could blow up anywhere else than on target!
