It's his intellectual property.
It was a real page-turner.
They call it the Nintendo Wheeeeeeeeeee!
It came back to bite me in a big way.
It's a real page turner!
I can't tell you how much this award means to me
But the patent office wouldn’t have a bar of it
But the Mayo clinic never responds to my letters.
The patent is "pending"
It feels like only yesterday.
“Are you?” I asked. My patent screamed. “Ohh, I see,” I said. He screamed even louder.
He could have sold millions of them and become a fridge magnate.
“Ha! That’s not going to help,” she said.
“Sure, it does,” I said. “It’s the only way I can see the numbers.”
My grandpa told me this joke; mind you, it was in the '90s, before all the computer tech became relevant.
Inventor runs to the patent office:
A pharmaceutical company just patented a medication that regenerates limbs. The problem is it costs an arm and a leg.
Play on words: Sexually frustrated sea mammals
I'm Russ Whale. My wife Bayleen a few months ago gave birth to our first calf, Humphrey. I convinced my mother-in-law to whale watch tonight. It's been far too long. I drop off Humphrey and head home to hook up with the wife.
I arrive and who do I sealion there? The wife. I'm undeterred. I try my patented move, the Humpback. I get a slight groan.
Bayleen: Rus, Are you poking me in the back again?
Rus: It's on porpoise. We're alone for the first time in forever.
Bayleen: I'm so tired, I haven't got any sleep with Humphrey making me into a nurse shark. Plus you smell like ambergris.
Bayleen: Yes, hamburgers. Please go take a shower or something.
Rus takes a quick shower and returns. Bayleen is asleep again. Rus tries the humpback maneuver again. Nothing.
Rus: Sometimes... I wish I was a sperm whale.
Rus is slightly blubbering and and all you can make outs is odd noises and maybe the word 'blowhole'. Rus cries himself to sleep.
Girlfriend reading article on phone.
I comment "what is this guy holding in the photo?"
She says "mushrooms"
I said "wow". They were huge mushrooms.
She says "Yeah this guy has found a way to cultivate natural pesticides from fungi and has a patent too"
My response "Wow. He seems like a really fun guy!"
"Hey, I'm going to do some errands."
"Ok sounds good I'll be here"
"Do you know where I'm going to do those errands?"
"At the Errand Space Museum" and then he did his patented Dad Fake Laugh and walked out the door.
At the dinner table with girlfriend, her patents, and her Grandparents, eating Chinese. Mother goes "I have some lo-mein if anyone wants any"
And grandpa without missing a second "oh well do yo have any high-mein".
