  5. Droll not Troll | 4:03 am |

    How dumb? Celsius, fahrenheit or absolute?

  6. Marum | 4:05 am |

    Long finger abruptly applied to appropriate area, may cause one to jump.

  7. Big Fat Cat | 4:06 am |

    Partyland is under class action for discriminating dumb persons.

  13. Droll not Troll | 4:11 am |

    @Big Fat Cat | 4:03 am: Bear Grills drinks lots of thing twice. 😛

  14. Droll not Troll | 4:15 am |

    180 degrees dumb person go away!

  15. Pete | 4:22 am |

    Prohibition?
    Well it explains the lack of alcoholic beverage buttons.
    But the real stumper is, what the heck happened to Japan?
    Like, did they suddenly get religion or something???

  16. Marum | 4:26 am |

    @DNT 0411 Bear Grylls. Unless of course, you are having a Major Ursine BBQ.

    Q: Did you know Bear Grylls fell into a pool of Crocodiles?

    A: yes. He ate three of the bastards before they could get him out.

  17. Yu No Hoo | 4:26 am |

    Lack of intelligence is a pressing issue.

  18. Marum | 4:28 am |

    @Pete 0422. It’s all shin to me for God,s Sake.

  19. Conventi | 4:32 am |

    Dumb and Dumber.

  20. Marum | 4:38 am |

    @Pete. Japanese businessmen love a good Scotch Whisky. (Whether they can hold it is another natter)

    To that end, they bought a lot of the bankrupt distilleries in Scotland. More credit to the Japs though, they didn’t computerise the whole operation. They retained the, traditional, one and two man pot still operations. (If it tastes that damn good – why change it)

  21. Marum | 4:38 am |

    Natter = matter.

  22. Pete | 4:54 am |

    @Marum,

    In fact a couple of years back NHK had a 6 month daily 15 minute “Morning Drama” about the first Japanese scotch distiller. Look up the particulars of the NHK series “Massan”.

    BTW…”shin to you”?
    I’m assuming this is Aussie slang I have yet to learn.

  23. Marum | 6:32 am |

    @Pete 0454. ‘Twas just weak puns on Shinto and Sake/I.
    You piqued my interest in Japanese Scotch Whiskys, so I looked them up. There are a few available here, so I must try some.

    The last time I tried Japanese Scotch, was at least 40 years ago. The Suntory Whisky back then, would “kill a brown dog”. (Aussie slang for “effen near horth pith”)

    Actually making good Scotch is rather complex. The Barley is malted, (sprouted) then smoked over burning peat. Then the wash is made and fermented (like beer). The it is distilled in Pot Stills. The “cask strength” liquor is the aged in Bourbon or Oloroso Sherry barrels, for a minimum of 7 years.

    It goes in at 50%ABV., and comes put at 40 – 43%ABV. The amount of alcohol lost in aging ,is referred to as “The Angel’s Share”.

  24. Marum | 6:37 am |

    BTW. 47% ABV = 100 proof (approx.)

  25. Marum | 7:01 am |

    EDIT 100Proof = 57% ABV approx.

  26. Droll not Troll | 7:05 am |

    @Marum | 4:26 am: I’m having a bad spell today. Almost misspelled “celsius” earlier. The spell-checker caught that one.
    I must be getting old; I used to be really good at spelling.

  27. Bob | 8:03 am |

    The Japanese text says “Do not press button twice.”

  28. Big Fat Cat | 10:11 am |

    @bob 8:03am: the text says ” Do not press butt twice”!

  29. Pete | 12:24 pm |

    Bob is correct.
    I would render a slightly different translation:
    “Pushing the button twice is prohibited!”

    The confusion over “twice” versus “two degrees” happened because the very same Chinese character the Japanese use to mean “degrees” also can mean “number of times”.

    The translator looked it up in the Japanese to English dictionary and picked the wrong meaning.

    I don’t know why the word “dumb” is there at all. It’s not in the original Japanese. So it’s a truly dumb translation effort no matter how you look at it!

  30. Pete | 12:28 pm |

    BTW the beverage options are:

    Mountain Dew
    Japanese Acerola Cherry (the pink one)
    Pineapple
    Coffee
    Pineapple
    Pepsi

    Yes, you read that right.
    Two of the buttons are for pineapple.
    Beats me why. Maybe it’s most popular.

  31. Classic Steve | 12:43 pm |

    What a cold thing to say.

  32. Seventy2rd o clock | 1:38 pm |

    My number one is dumber one!

  33. Seventy2rd o clock | 1:40 pm |

    I pressed Pepsi twice but no button came out

  34. Seventy2rd o clock | 1:41 pm |

    Is that person of the opposite sex?

  35. Marum | 3:49 pm |

    @DNT 0705. Las excusas hombre.
    I was not being a Grammar Nazi. It just gave me an excuse to make an obscure pun on Ursus Major. Thus “major ursine”.

    In fact, to be known to demean such a constellation, would be more than I could bare. (grilled or otherwise)

  36. Marum | 3:58 pm |

    If you press the button/s twice, a robotized hand comes out of the bottom hatch, and grabs your nuts in a vicelike grip, until you recant from your heretical disregard for the edict, issued by honourable vending machine san.

  37. Marum | 4:00 pm |

    If you don’t recant, your nuts will suffer 2 degrees of separation.

  38. Lora | 4:36 pm |

    The dumb people are always trying to select Crystal Pepsi and New Coke.

    (yes I know they brought back Crystal Pepsi, which is even more dumb)

  39. Droll not Troll | 12:17 am |

    @Pete | 12:28 pm: Maybe pressing the wrong “Pineapple” button gets you the “rough end of the pineapple.” (Aussie slang)

  40. DrLex | 4:18 am |

    You must have at least 3 degrees in dumbness to push the button.

  41. Marum | 5:58 am |

    @DNT 0017. On pineapples.

    Q. What is the difference between a Police Car and a pineapple?

    A. With a pineapple, all the pricks are on the outside.

  42. Marum | 6:19 am |

    Another anti police joke – on aboriginal deaths in custody in West Aust.

    Being part aborigine myself, I am appalled by the figures. (suicides in custody bumfluff) There have been, obviously, quite a few rogue cops killing aboriginal people who have been arrested, and put in the cells. It would be a standing joke, if it were not so tragic.

    Anyway:

    They found this aboriginal bloke. He had been beaten to a pulp, stabbed four times, shot twice, and nailed to a wall. The West Australian Police Commissioner told a hushed press gallery; “This is the worst case of suicide I have ever seen.”

  43. Long Tom | 4:40 pm |

    The late Manuel Noriega, former strongman of Panama, was known as “Pineapple Face” from having had acne as a teenager.

  44. jjhitt | 3:50 am |

    So you thought you could just come to Partyland and push all the buttons you want, huh?

  45. A Non-Y Mouse | 2:14 am |

    I feel like there’s a Trump joke in here somewhere but I can’t quite put my finger on it.

  46. markm | 7:38 pm |

    Marum: There’s a version of that last joke in the USA: A Chicago Alderman was found dead, shot in the back six times. The coroner said it was “The worst case of suicide I’ve ever seen.”
