*Insert obvious joke about "riding the turbo shaft" here*

Guy #1: Wow! This elevator moves a lot faster than I thought it would!
Girl: Yeah, you're right.
Guy #2: You know what would be really cool? A turbo shaft! Those things move so fast!

Everyone stares at him blankly.

Guy #1: Dude, what the fuck are you talking about?
Guy #2: You know, from Star Trek!

I'd rather see the library install the green tubes from Super Mario... complete with man-eating plant beasts!

And this is where I invite the flames of geek-mockery by pointing out that they're actually usually referred to as turbo lifts....

Hm... I've been trying for a while to understand these jokes about "mom", like the previous posts for example... I guess due to my non-Canadian heritage I am still struggling to properly get the "fun" part of them. I am sorry for having this stupid request, but could somebody please explain it to me? Thank you!

your mom likes it hard.

See, in Canada, we like to insult your mother in an effort to bring a spirit of joyful camaderie to any situation.

In other countries, if you insult someone's motha,they slit your throat or put the "evil eye" curse on you.

^ and by the way, I blasted your mom's "evil eye" last night...

Insulting people's mothers is a great way to break the ice and get a conversation started - at work, on the bus, wherever. You should try it.

It's fun breaking your mom. If you fall through the ice, make sure that you have enough canoes for everyone.
