...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

In medieval times the King's Guards were off duty and carousing through the red light section of town. In one of the lowest dives of all the taverns, the Captain of the Guards spied the Lady Gwendolyn, Mistress of the Court's Champion Sir Cumference. Approaching this high born Lady in such a low dive, he asked:

"What's a Knight's girl like you doing in a place like this?"

I asked the lion what he was doing in my wardrobe.

He said, "Narnia business."


All students in Helsinki go to Finnishing school.



I don't want to get technical but according to chemistry,

alcohol IS a solution.


Am I just getting old, or have death puns become moribund-ant lately?


Even the accountant had his own handmade spread sheet.


The linen shop gave its employees free bedding.


What do you do when balloons are hurt? You helium.
