Number 13

I was walking past the mental hospital the other day, and all the patients were shouting,’13….13….13’The fence was too high to see over, but I saw a little hole in the planks and looked through to see what was going on. Some bastard poked me in the eye with a stick.

Then they all started shouting ’14….14….14’….

Young Granddaughter

A friend, who worked away from home all week, always made a special effort with his family on the weekends. Every Sunday morning he would take his 7-year old granddaughter out for a drive in the car for some bonding time. Just he and his granddaughter.

One particular Sunday however, he had a bad cold and really didn’t feel like being up at all. Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and said that she would take their granddaughter out.

When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her grandfather.

“Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?”

“Oh yes, PaPa” the girl replied, “and do you know what? We didn’t see a single dumb bastard or lousy shithead anywhere we went today!”

Kinda brings a tear to your eye doesn’t it?

The Columbian newspaper (Vancouver, WA) reported on March 2, 2005 that Govenor Gregoire of Washington State was singled out with a positive comment by President Bush at his annual Governor’s Dinner. It caused quite a stir since she won the governor’s race against Republican candidate,Dino Rossi, by only 126 votes. Now here is the fun part.

Rossi spokeswoman, Mary Lane, was quoted as saying, “The president of course is a gentleman, so of course he would say that. The fact is, she is only the governor in the most legalistic and technical of terms.”


The Associated Press reported today that on the U.S. border with Mexico, “U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested 149,238 fewer people from the start of July through November, down 34 percent from the same period last year, according to monthly figures provided Tuesday by U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Mario Martinez.” Do the math and that is still around 57,939 per month AND that is only the ones that got caught. We are being invaded, aren’t we? AP also reports that there are 11,000 Border Agents and 6,000 National Guard troops watching the border.
