Is marriage giving me the sense of humor of a teenage boy?

Network apologizes for mocking town name

Associated Press Writer

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- A cable sports network says it no longer will make Athol the butt of its jokes.

Hee Hee Hee...  or as the internetites say ROTFLMAO.  

I'm sorry, but if you live in a town that is spelled "Athol", even if it supposed to be pronounced "ATH'-awl," you need to get a sense of humor and join in the fun.  And if you are a cable sports network making a funny, albeit crude joke, you shouldn't apologize just because some people have no sense of humor.  

Also, Susanah Whipps, the only town selectman to say that they shouldn't complain to the network would totally get my vote if I lived there.  Her comment was that she was much more concerned about the vandals who added a r to the beginning and an e to to the end of the town signs to change the town name to rat hole.

Hee, Hee, "Athol"... such a funny name.  It reminds me of a time when some friends and I went on a long driving trip and every time we saw a dam, someone would point and shout out "DAM!" as loudly as possible, jut because they could.

PS I have a feeling that before I was married I would not have found this nearly as funny, but being under the constant influence of boy humor does things to a girl.

It is the constant boy contact. I've had that horrid sense of humor since I joined a band of boys in high school. It does odd things to you. Farting and burping become very amusing next if you're not careful. You've been warned. ;)
