There was a man staying the night in a hotel. He called the front desk and said,
"Excuse me, sir, I've got a leak in my sink."
The man at the front desk replied, "Oh, okay, go ahead, but most guests just use the toilet."

One more . . .
I was working the front desk by the hotel one night, when a guy from room 1130 calls. “Help!” he yelled. “I’m trapped!” “What do you mean, trapped?” I asked him. “Well, I see three doors,” the man said. “The first one is to the bathroom, the next one opens the closet, and the third door has a “Do Not Disturb” sign on it.

To think I might have had the opportunity to update HIS Wiki with the death date - but evidently they don't want to declare that until a "more reliable source" states it, and threw the article into Protected status.

These guys are great live.

Would've been the most famous person's article I updated to death status so far. (And did, but others had tried and were reverted, mine was reverted right before they locked the page). Jazz legend Byard Lancaster was the most prominent person I updated personally, after hearing about his passing on a Doug Schulkind show:

Did the 'Storefront Hitchcock' movie ever happen? He's surreal 24/7; after hearing him rap between songs @ a show - I felt like I was in a Dali painting walking home...

Sad to hear about Johnny Winter - high on the short list of people who show that white people cannot only play the Blues, but be significant. A friend of Jimi Hendrix & John Lennon, great slide player, expressive...

Someone was telling me of her trip to Africa. After a hot day of traveling, she was longing for an ice-cold soft drink. Her hosts gave her the local drink - fresh warm milk mixed with cow blood. Quite a culture shock right there.
