Bill Clinton as prophet...


The headline on Drudge read, "Bill Clinton predicts coming disasters!" I thought he was talking about Hilary and the 2008 elections. Turns out he was referring to worldwide famine, and an obesity epidemic? Read the rest here: "Bill Clinton warns of looming disasters."

An attorney thing...



Policeman testifies in court....................

If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defence attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the policeman's credibility...

Q: "Officer -- did you see my client fleeing the scene?"

A: "No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away."

Q: "Officer -- who provided this description?"

A: "The officer who responded to the scene."

Q: "A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?"

A: "Yes, sir. With my life."

Q: "With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?"

A: "Yes sir, we do!"

Q: "And do you have a locker in the room?"

A: "Yes sir, I do."

Q: "And do you have a lock on your locker?"

A: "Yes sir."

Q: "Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?"

A: "You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room." The courtroom erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year's "Best Comeback" line -- and we think he'll win.

Remember this film?

Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in "Mommie Dearest" - one of my favorite lines in the entire film was directed to the Pepsi Board of Directors, telling them, "Don't "F" with me boys!" LOL!

Taking a break

People can often take themselves too seriously.
