...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Found For Friday

Frank and Suzy were making passionate love in Frank's van when suddenly Suzy, who was a bit on the kinky side, and had just read "50 shades of grey", yells out "Oh fat boy, whip me, whip me!"
Frank, not wanting to pass up this unique opportunity, obviously did not have any whips to hand, but in a flash of inspiration, opened the window, snaps the antenna off his van and proceeds to whip Suzy until they both collapse in sado-masochistic ecstasy.
About a week later Suzy notices that the marks left by the whipping session are not healing and starting to fester a bit so she goes to the doctor.
The doctor takes one look at the wounds and asks: "Did you get these marks having sex?"
Suzy a little too embarrassed that she had even had sex with Frank, let alone allowed him to indulge in her own kinky desires, eventually admits, "Yes I did."
Nodding his head knowingly the doctor exclaims: "I thought so because in all my years as a doctor you've got the worst case of van aerial disease that I've ever seen."



“Academia would be a meeting of the minds

When I see lovers' names carved in a tree, I don't think it's sweet. I just think it's surprising how many people bring a knife on a date.


The use of drones to deliver magazines will certainly raise some issues.



What is a thesaurus' favorite dessert? Synonym buns.



To whoever stole my Microsoft Office, you're going to pay. 
You have my Word…


The board game enthusiasts were ecstatic, you could say they were in pair of dice.

My phone has to wear glasses ever since it lost its contacts.

Southern cassowary

The cassowaries (/ˈkæsəwɛərr/) are ratites(flightless birds without a keel on their sternum bone) in the genus Casuarius and are native to thetropical forests of New Guinea (Papua New Guinea and Indonesia), nearby islands, and northeastern Australia.
There are three extant species. The most common of these, the southern cassowary, is the third tallest and second heaviest living bird, smaller only than the ostrich and emu.
Cassowaries feed mainly on fruit, although all species are truly omnivorous and will take a range of other plant food, including shoots and grass seeds, in addition to fungiinvertebrates, and small vertebrates. Cassowaries are very shy, but when provoked they are capable of inflicting injuries, occasionally fatal, to dogs and people.

A man and his pet giraffe walk into a bar. It's about 5 p.m., but they're ready for a good night of drinking. They start off slowly, watching TV, drinking beer, eating peanuts. As the night goes on they move to mixed drinks, and then shooters, one after the other. Finally, the bartender says: "Last call." So, the man says, "One more for me... and one more for my giraffe."


The bartender sets them up and they shoot them back. Suddenly, the giraffe falls over dead.


The man throws some money on the bar, puts on his coat and starts to leave. The bartender, yells:


"Hey buddy, you can't just leave that lyin' there."


To which the man replies: "That's not a lion, that's a giraffe."


A police officier is stopped at a red light. While there, he notices quite a din coming from the trunk of a car in front of him. He approaches the driver of said car and instructs him to get out of the vehicle and open the trunk. The driver complies, and in the trunk are a dozen giraffes.


The police officer says, "Take these giraffes to the zoo immediately!!" The driver says, "Right away officer!" and drives off.


The following day the cop is at the same red light, and who should be stopped in front of him but the same car with the same loud noise coming from the trunk.


The cop is really irritated now and again tells the driver to get out and open his trunk. There are the same dozen giraffes, only this time they're all wearing sunglasses.


The policeman says, "I told you to take these giraffes to the zoo!", to which the driver replies, "But officer, I did...today they want to go to the beach!"
