Sunday Funnies 02/26/06


That Al Gore IS funny, isn't he? Perhaps he's just following Bill Clinton's example of bashing America when speaking overseas. Hat tip to The Chatterbox Chronicles for the comic.

A lawyer went duck hunting in rural Texas. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."

The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the United States and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."

The old farmer smiled and said," Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Texas. We settle small disagreements like this with the "Three Kick Rule."

The lawyer asked, "What is the Three Kick Rule?"

The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and soon back and forth until someone gives up."

The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger.

He agreed to abide by the local custom.The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney.

His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toedwork boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees.

His second kick to the midriff then made the lawyer loose his early morning breakfast.

The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.

The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, Now it's my turn."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Naaaaaah, I give up now. You can have the duck."

About a century or so ago, the Pope decided that all the Jews had to leave Rome. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Jewish community. So the Pope made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Jewish community. If the Jew won, the Jews could stay. If the Pope won, the Jews would leave.The Jews realized that they had no choice. So they picked a middle aged man named Moishe to represent them. Moishe asked for one addition to the debate. To make it more interesting, neither side would be allowed to talk. The Pope agreed.

The day of the great debate came. Moishe and the Pope sat opposite eachother for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. Moishe looked back at him and raised one finger. The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head. Moishe pointed to the ground where he sat. The Pope pulled out a wafer and a glass of wine. Moishe pulled out an apple. The Pope stood up and said, "I give up. This man is too good. The Jews can stay."

An hour later, the cardinals were all around the Pope asking him what had happened. The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground and showing that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us from our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of original sin. He had an answer for everything. What could I do?"

Meanwhile, the Jewish community had crowded around Moishe. "What happened?" they asked. "Well," said Moishe, "First he said to me that the Jews had three days to get out of here. I told him that not one of us was leaving. Then he told me that this whole city would be cleared of Jews. I let him know that we were staying right here.""Yes, yes,.. and then???" asked the crowd. "I don't know," said Moishe, "He took out his lunch, and I took out mine."

Now and Beyond

On the day after Jack Benny's death in December, 1974, a single long stemmed red rose was delivered to Mary Livingstone Benny, his wife of 48 years.

When the blossoms continued to arrive, day after day, Mary called the florist to find out who sent them.

"Quite a while before Jack passed away," the florist told her, "He stopped in to send a bouquet. As he was leaving, he suddenly turned back and said, "If anything should happen to me, I want you to send Mary a single rose every day."

There was complete silence on Mary's end of the line, then weeping, she said, "Goodbye."

Subsequently, Mary learned that Jack had actually included a provision for the flowers in his will, one perfect red rose daily for the rest of her life.

A touching and romantic final gesture from a man born on Valentine's Day.

The bathroom is pretty freaky! And I'm gonna have to remember the Three Kick Rule.

Being from Texas, I'm definitely going to remember the Three Kick Rule! ROTFALMAO! Excellent!

Actually, you have an excellent blog here. You are extremely creative and informative. Obviously I have never been here before but I am seriously impressed with you.

I was at PatC's blog, and although this is off subject of this post, he mentioned "The Nazi Roots of Muslim Brotherhood." That's what I checked out first. A historical jewel that I never knew. (Lots of things I don't know. Like not knowing about you, for example!) I said there that I would link you, not realizing you are on "The Texas Connection" Blogroll, so you are already linked to me. I would also like to work up a post regarding that post. I was absolutely impressed by it. I think you are one of the greatest conservative blogger finds ever. Great blogging! So you are going to be my next project, as soon as I can get around to it. I really believe that The Nazi Roots of Muslim Brotherhood is extremely important information to get out. :)

Gayle,

Thank you for your encouraging comments. I too believe this is extremely important information to get out there.

Radical Islam is a totalitarian cult of death. We need to stop treating it like a religion and recognize it for the facist political movement it is.

So far I have been linking to articles on line that explain this. Soon, if time allows, I am hoping to be able to quote some books with more details about Radical Islam and it's roots in western facism, Marxist thought and the French counter-Enlightenment.
