"Three Supreme Court justices — Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas — did not attend the State of the Union address. Taking their place was Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson."


I missed the middle section of Obama's State of the Union address when I took a break to read "War and Peace," but I gather he never got around to what I was hoping he'd say, which is: "What was I thinking?"

It was different when we were kids. In second grade, a teacher came in and gave us all a lecture about not smoking, and then they sent us over to arts and crafts to make ashtrays for Mother's Day

Participant Paul’s Particular Puns………………………..


A Texas woman who couldn't afford new curtains decided to dye her old ones. She got out a vat, mixed some brilliant blue dye, and set to work. While the woman was hanging her curtains on the line, her little white lamb fell into the vat. He was fished out unhurt and went scurrying off to dry in the sun. A passing motorist observed the bright blue lamb, thought he'd discovered a new species, and came up offering twice the market price. The woman decided she had a pretty good thing going. The next day she dyed a second lamb. It, too, sold almost immediately at a fancy price. From this start she developed quite a business buying, dyeing and selling lambs. She became the biggest lamb dyer in the state of Texas.


This guy goes into a bar where the band has just finished a set. When they return, the singer says, "We'll now start taking' requests..." and our man wanders up and timidly asks, "Could you play 'Jupicka'?" The singer looks confused, talks with the other band members, and they ask the guy if he could sing a bit of it for them. So he sings, "Jupicka fine time to leave me Lucille."


An Indian chief was feeling very sick, so he summoned the medicine man. After a brief examination, the medicine man took out a long, thin strip of elk hide and gave it to the chief, instructing him to bite off, chew and swallow one inch of the leather every day. After a month, the medicine man returned to see how the chief was feeling. The chief shrugged and said, "The thong is ended but the malady lingers on."

Harry’s 100 Hoaxes…………………….


The Predictions of Isaac Bickerstaff.  In February 1708 a previously unknown London astrologer named Isaac Bickerstaff published an almanac in which he predicted the death by fever of the famous rival astrologer John Partridge.  According to Bickerstaff, Partridge would die on March 29 of that year.  Partridge indignantly denied the prediction, but on March 30 Bickerstaff released a pamphlet announcing that he had been correct: Partridge was dead.  It took a day for the news to settle in, but soon everyone had heard of the astrologer's demise.  Thus, on April 1st Partridge was woken by a sexton outside his window who wanted to know if there were any orders for his funeral sermon.  Then, as Partridge walked down the street, people stared at him as if they were looking at a ghost or stopped to tell him that he looked exactly like someone they knew who was dead.  As hard as he tried, Partridge couldn't convince people that he wasn't dead.  Bickerstaff, it turned out, was a pseudonym for the satirist Jonathan Swift.  His prognosticatory practical joke upon Partridge worked so well that the astrologer finally was forced to stop publishing his almanacs, because he couldn't shake his reputation as the man whose death had been foretold.

That’s it for this week from your embedded community activist.  (Notice how the newzies have stopped using embedded reporters since Obama was elected?)  The People’s Democratic Republic of Absurdistan’s principle city, Absurdia won a %52.7 million grant for their “Race to the Top” submission to improve the quality of education in said city.  More than half will fund a new system for teacher evaluation and compensation.  I’m betting the rest will go to the North Avenue school system managers and the union…….. Any takers?

But, on the other hand…………………..


The value of consistent prayer is not that He will hear us, but that we will hear Him.
