QUOTES OF THE DAY
“The highway cop said, ‘Walk a straight line.’ I said, ‘Well, Officer Pythagoras, the closest you could ever come to a straight line would be making an electrocephalogram of your brain waves.’ He said, ‘You’re under arrest. You have the right to remain silent. Do you wish to retain that right?’ And I thought, ‘Oooh, a paradox!'” –Emo Philips
A donkey had an IQ of 186. He had no friends at all though. Because even in the animal kingdom, nobody likes a smart-ass.
In the frozen foods department of our local grocery store, I noticed a man shopping with his son. As I walked by, he checked something off his list, and I heard him whisper conspiratorially to the child, “You know, if we really mess this up, we’ll never have to do it again.”

Brandon, my grandson was working at a pet store that offered free replacement fish to any that die. A lady called and stated that her hamster had died. The salesperson who answered the phone misunderstood her, thinking it was a fish, told her to place it in a plastic bag with water and return it so it could be replaced. The lady followed instructions to a “T” and brought her dead hamster in a bag of water and handed to my grandson and said “my hamster died.” Laughing he replied “Was that before or after you placed it in the bag of water?”
He was fired for not showing sympathy to a customer!

Wednesday’s Quizzler is……….
They turn themselves over to me
Knowing before they’ve departed
They’ll end up near where they started
I may be called emotional
Loopy, perhaps commotional
For those brave souls who seek a thrill
I’m sure to nicely fit the bill
By a force of nature propelled
I’m courage-testing those compelled
Greeted with anxiousness and fret
Seldom exited with regret
What am I?
ANSWER: A roller coaster.
lines 1-2: People who wish to ride a roller coaster do so voluntarily.
lines 3-4: The loading area and where the ride ends for roller coasters are typically not far apart.
lines 5-6: Line 5 alludes to the phrase “emotional roller coaster”. In line 6, “Loopy” is a reference to the fact that many roller coasters have loops.
lines 7-8: Most people find a roller coaster ride exhilarating and/or thrilling.
lines 9-10: A roller coaster is powered by the force of gravity. It might be considered as a test of courage to see if one is brave enough to take a ride on a roller coaster. Some may find this challenge enticing.
lines 11-12: Before the roller-coaster ride, there is often some degree of anxiousness or uneasiness. But afterwards, the rider usually feels positive about the experience, and quite possibly would want to go again for another ride.
