WELCOME to THURSDAY NOVEMBER 19, 2020
Here’s the story……
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there were two evil friars living outside
this small village. The friars had tried unsuccessfully to overtake and capture the
town, but finally this time, they believed they had hit upon a foolproof scheme that
would allow them to rule the village. They had, through mad scientist experiments
in their floral shop, come up with a plant that would devour the townspeople one
by one until none were left. They set forth to put their plan into action by planting
the man-eating plants so they encircled the village.
As the plants rapidly grew, they began devouring everything living in their path.
The townspeople grew frightened; who or what would save them from their eminent
doom? Finally, the town’s elder remember Hugh, a woodcutter who lived on the
outskirts of town. Frantically, the townspeople penned a desperate plea for help,
tied it to the leg of a pigeon, and directed the bird toward Hugh’s cabin.
Meanwhile, outside of town, Hugh had received the note from the townspeople,
and realizing they were in grave danger, set forth to do what he needed to do.
He honed his mightiest axe to razor-sharpness, grabbed his hat, and off he went.
Chopping his way through the dense vines, he single-handedly destroyed the
carnivorous plants one by one, until all were destroyed. Then he set out to rid the
village of the evil friars, chasing them out of town. The town was saved!!! The
people rejoiced and knighted Hugh for his brave and timely efforts to save the village!!!
And the moral of the story is: Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL
THURSDAY people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

In one of my classes, they were discussing the qualifications to be president
of the United States. It was pretty simple – the candidate must be a natural
born citizen of at least 35 years of age. However, one girl in the class
immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen.
In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable
individuals from becoming president. The class was just taking it in and
letting her rant, but everyone’s jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up
her argument by saying, “What makes a natural born citizen any more
qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?” 😳😁😎
