What follows is the first in a series of The DM Refugees “Joke Of The Day.” This uproarious new feature is sponsored by the new candy company, Bob’s Taffy Flanks, coming soon to a store near you. Remember, it’s Bob’s Taffy Flanks – whap ’em and scarf ’em down!
Without further ado, let’s get on with the mirth!
Joke for October 23:

We regret to inform you that there is a sudden legal snafu between the makers of Bob’s Taffy Flanks and our website; it appears the candy company has taken issue with the fact that the first joke, marked October 23, was actually posted at 12:24 am on October 24 – violating the terms of the agreement for individual day naming rights for The DMR/Bob’s Taffy Flanks Joke Of The Day, since technically, it was posted the day after the advertised joke was scheduled to appear. From the publishers:
We feel the pulling of the Bob’s Taffy Flanks charter was at the very least, premature, and at worst, a violation of our contract in light of the naming rights laws in at least four states. In addition, legal ramifications resulting from this action have threatened the continuation of the series, at least through October, according to our legal consultants, the firm of Lopes, Garvey, Russell, and Cey.
In addition, the bidding for the original contract came down to four worthy companies, in our estimation; while we have not contracted with the three other bidders – Toasty Coffee Strips, Ramsey Geese Droppings, and Encyclopedia Pennsylvania – none of the other bidders included time stamping as part of the requirement for the naming rights. We have been asked by Bob’s Taffy Flanks (to be honest, the stuff tastes like paint chips) to return the naming rights fees; we will diligently fight this action to the fullest extent of the law.
Sadly, it appears that our next DMR “Joke Of The Day” is postponed indefinitely. Until, then, we invite you to sample our other humor writings, as well as the work of Robert Smith, Jon Pine, and Steve Ricci, who, ironically, enjoy taffy on a daily basis, particularly Smith, who’s really let himself go.

We have been informed by a prominent national toy company that we cannot refer to our site as a “barrel of anything,” since it infringes on the copyright of a famous children’s game.

We have been given a note claiming that a goodbye greeting invoking “a pleasant” cannot be used by our site since it infringes on the sign-off catch phrase of a national news reader.
Just log on to the fucking Onion, will ya?
