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.

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).

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.

Bad joke time and based on a real story:
I am a smoker. I live right by the beach, and there was a lifeguard-less public beach, that was basically a tanning/fishing spot near me, and I would go there to smoke, as I enjoyed the combo of tobacco-smoke and sea air. I would go there at night, not knowing that it was illegal to be there after dusk, as there was no sign. Once, a group of policemen came on the beach at night, and one of them asked me what I was doing, as I hadn't lit up yet. "Smoking" I said. "Pot?" the police said (I question the officer's intelligence, because if someone was smoking an illegal substance, they would have to be high already to even say "Smoking" to a Policeman.) I replied "Tobacco", and after telling me that going to the beach at night was illegal, he let me off with a warning. But I guess he suspected me of smoking......
