Happy As A Clam...

I ask you, what the hell does a clam have to be so happy about?

They have no arms or legs. They can't joke around with their clam buddies. They can't see or hear shit, so TV is out. Their whole makeup consists of a viscous slime surrounded by a muddy outer shell.

Is that anything to be happy about?

Of course, they never have to listen to shit-ass pundits like O'Reilly or sit in rush hour traffic, so maybe I'm wrong...

Well, at least a clam is a living thing.

What about the term (and I hear it a lot in your part of the country) "Pleased as punch". Punch? I also heard "Proud as punch".

Clams make me happy. Especially when they're in some form of Chowdah! CHOWDAH!!!!

Clams don't have to worry about finding jobs. Lucky clams.
