first... I think

Btw if you believe I'm first... I've got a bridge I'd like to sell you.

And if you believe that story, I have a bridge to sell you.

Haha! Thinking the same thing at the same time, althor!

OK, I guess that pun is played out now. :-)

Hmmm...people will steal ANYTHING!

I dunno.. I couldn't give away my shuttlecock....

one girl asked me if I was an astronaut... :-/

Proving that people will steal anything even if it IS nailed down.

now I have heard it all...

and then some

now I have heard it all...

and then some

once more with feeling!

Arrivederci, Roma.

I bet they could have gotten more than $170 for it on eBay. Heck, I would have gone $175, and I don't even have a river...

(breaking into song) ".......like a bridge over troubled water ........."

So they sold a 150 year old bridge for $170? Not the sharpest dealers in the bunch, were they? They'll be drummed out of the gypsys at that rate.

i'll give you $180.... i never can walk past a bargain, but in this case I CAN walk over it

'Over several days, the group dismantled the metal bridge built during the Austro-Hungarian empire 150 years ago, transported the parts to a local junk yard and sold them,'

Over several days???? Fine response time from the police there.

oh, right...the theives had just dismantled their escape route...

That would be a great case of painting oneself into the corner...

How would you punnify it? (punnify... I made that up myself :-) )

KEEPER: Stop! Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, 'ere the other side he see.
LAUNCELOT: Ask me the questions, bridge-keeper. I'm not afraid.
KEEPER: What is your name?
LAUNCELOT: My name is Sir Launcelot of Camelot.
KEEPER: What is your quest?
LAUNCELOT: To seek the Holy Grail.
KEEPER: err... Where the hell is my bridge!

Anyone else think Mostar Bridge Thieves wba OKnfarb?

How do you say SPEED in uh...Bosnian?

(I heart Writer's Cramp. Just saying.)

Citizens of Mostar: They've stolen our bridge.
Mostar Police Force: Oh, get over it.
Citizens of Mostar: We can't. They've stolen our bridge.

(and so on)

Crash...Tipiyokti!

At some point in there, somebody had to say, "I've got a bridge to sell you." And someone else had to say, "Ok, I've never heard this cliche." Some things just don't translate into ..Bosnian??..Assuming there's such a language.
