WELCOME to Friday, October 10, 2014.
A Humorous Guide to USA Newspaper Readers….
The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
The New York Times is read by people who think they run the country.
The Washington Post is read by people who think they should run the country.
USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don’t really understand the Washington Post. They do, however like the smog statistics shown in pie charts.
The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the country, if they could spare the time, and if they didn’t have to leave L.A. to do it.
The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country.
The New York Daily News is read by people who aren’t too sure who’s running the country, and don’t really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.
The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who’s running the country either, as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.
The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren’t sure there is a country, or that anyone is running it; but whoever it is, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped minority, feministic atheist dwarfs, who also happen to be illegal aliens from ANY country or galaxy as long as they are democrats.
The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores.
It is generally believed that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great weekend people and whatever you do,

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
Barbara, during her nurse’s training at a hospital just outside Washington, DC, had little money for meals, so she often resorted to the food provided at the hospital refectory, even though she had a great dislike for its rather bland taste.
Barbara often took her breaks in the kitchen, and sometimes kindly visitors would give her some of the treats they had brought for patients who had not wanted to eat them.
On one particular evening an English woman, from the East end of London, brought a home made pie to the kitchen and said to Barbara, ‘Would you eat this up, love?’
Barbara and her student friend devoured every last delicious crumb.
Soon their benefactor returned, however, and asked, ‘Is me ‘usband’s pie ‘ot yet, dearie?’
Thursday Movie Trivia of the day!‘ How much movie trivia can you answer?
What movie is this quote from??? “There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible than a man
in the depths of an ether binge…”
Answer: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas! Johnny Deep cranked out this line toward one of the ends of one of his many massive speeches in this Terry Gilliam masterpiece. Trying to watch this movie sober is challenging so as your attorney I recommend a steady regiment of mind altering drugs to help you cope.
