    Thought ya'll might like to hear this true one.
    A friend and her husband in Calif were having dinner at a local restaurant and overheard the following conversation from the next table.
    The couple was a young/middle aged.
    The man had ordered the meal - lamb chops and etc.
    The female commented how good the meat was and asked ' what part of the cow does this come from?'
    The male responded that the lamb chops came from sheep.
    To which the female - after looking down at her plate and studying the food in silence for a short while responded ' poor bambi'.

    yeah.. knew a young woman like that myself when I was about 19. Three things she did....

    1. Asked what a windshield factor was and why did it affect the weather? (wind chill)
    2. When told that someone was going bow hunting, wanted to know what kind of animal a bow was.
    3. When a young married man of our acquaintance went to the drug store she worked at to ask for prophylactics (think prevent pregnancy) not knowing what he was asking for she SHOUTED to the back of the store "WHERE DO WE KEEP THE PROPHYLACTICS?" Poor man nearly slunk out the door.

    She was a brunette... though she bleached her hair very very blonde.

    gil, don't laugh, this happened to me with a jock. Young lady, loud voice, "where are the small athletic supporters"!
    And after the other guy showed up, I said I needed a 30 in waist w/ a "z" cup!


    The guy should have told her it was from a "Baby sheep"

    Hey--anybody know where Naugahyde comes from?


    Naugas. You have to put a stick in their mouth to hold it open so they can't bite you and then you beat them to death. That's what gives the hide those wrinkle looking parts.


    I have had more dumb blonds believing that story than you could shake a stick at. Hahahaha!

    We've convinced a couple of people that there is a herd of Naugas and that they are endangered species.

    Good times.

    Ahhhhhhh.....haaaaaaa......but here is the real "truth" about Naugas......

    http://www.naugahyde.com/history.html :p

    And if that one doesn't do it for you.......here's the lowdown from Wikipedia

    Naugahyde
    The most well-known brand name of pleather is Naugahyde, which used to be made in Naugatuck, Connecticut. It is now made in Stoughton, WI.

    Naugahyde marketing includes a fictional animal called the "Nauga" whose hides are supposedly the natural source of all the Naugahyde manufactured. According to the story [1], which has become something of folk-lore in parts of Connecticut, the Naugas are nocturnal, hairless, aquatic mammals of many colors that live in the Naugatuck River, and can be made to come to the surface at night by shining a flashlight into the water. The Naugas are then captured and sorted by color to be made into the various colors of Naugahyde. Allegedly, when rolled together on a mechanical press, the seams between the Naugas disappear, resulting in a seamless, leather-like product.

    My sisters are all red heads I'm the only blonde, But one day while my middle sister was visiting me in my garden I showed her my cold frame, and she said "why, do some plants like to be kept cold as starts?" She even has her own garden! I guess we should think up a new name for Cold Frames to help those less endowed upstairs! Maybe Hotstarter! Windowsizedgreenhouse! Starterbox?

    Sherrie there is another name, hotbeds. I have a booklet from the USDA called "Hotbeds and Coldframes" and I always thought that was kind of funny. Technically the hotbeds have horsemanure at the bottom to "heat" it.
