Yes it does but then the :yout: isn’t a link anymore; either way the interesting bit was that the preview showed it as working.

Let's see if this works?

Yo momma so dumb, I said, "These are knotty issues", and she thought I had subscribed to Playboy.

How did the scientist who invented the time machine say goodbye to someone before sending them more than 2,000 years into the past?

BC-ing you!




And here's my sorry attempt at a French pun:

Comment convainc-t-on quelqu'un que le sang n'est pas rouge ?

On fait sang blanc !


Translation:

How do you convince someone that blood isn't red?

You make white blood!


"On fait sang blanc" (You make white blood) is pronounced the same as "On fait semblant" (You pretend).

I don't think that joke is accurate anymore...

That was my initial reaction, too. But then I thought the beef might be that in the English-speaking world, the growing trend is to use BCE (before the common era) and CE (common era) instead of the religiously charged BC/AD (and "BCE-ing you" doesn't work). Maybe :wat:. Whatever the accuracy concerns may be, I still found the joke moderately amusing. [:)]

Hmm, well, I'd want more explanation on how BCE vs. BC is an accuracy issue, being they refer to the same dates. And some people do still use AD/BC; maybe our time machine inventor is a bit behind the times (pun intended).

If what troubles is the exact number of years needed to escape the anni Domini, you can substitute "more than 2,000 years" for "[current year number] + 1 years". It just seemed like more math than necessary.

Ah, don't know how I missed that. My bad.
