Here’s The Story….
(This one was found on the internet. We cannot corroborate its accuracy, but it is an amusing story…)
When Gandhi was studying law at the University College of London, there was a professor, whose last name was Peters, who felt animosity for Gandhi, and because Gandhi never lowered his head towards him, their “arguments” were very common. One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room of the University and Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to the professor. The professor, in his arrogance, said, “Mr Gandhi: you do not understand… a pig and a bird do not sit together to eat,” to which Gandhi replies, “You do not worry professor, I’ll fly away, ” and he went and sat at another table. Mr. Peters, green of rage, decides to take revenge on the next test, but Gandhi responds brilliantly to all questions. Then, Mr. Peters asked him the following question, “Mr Gandhi, if you are walking down the street and find a package, and within it there is a bag of wisdom and another bag with a lot of money; which one will you take?” Without hesitating, Gandhi responded, “the one with the money, of course.” Mr. Peters, smiling, said, “I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom, don’t you think?” “Each one takes what one doesn’t have,” responded Gandhi indifferently. Mr. Peters, already hysteric, writes on the exam sheet the word “idiot” and gives it to Gandhi. Gandhi takes the exam sheet and sits down. A few minutes later, Gandhi goes to the professor and says, “Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade. 😳😁😎

Sean is the vicar of a Protestant parish on the border of Northern Ireland and Eire, and Patrick
is the priest at the Roman Catholic Church across the road. One day they are seen together, erecting a sign which says:
“THE END IS NEAR. TURN YOURSELF AROUND NOW, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.”
As a car speeds past them, the driver leans out his window and yells,
“Leave people alone, you religious nutters. We don’t need your #### lectures.”
From around the next curve they hear screeching tyres and a big splash.
Shaking his head, Father Patrick says, “Dat’s da therd one dis mornin.'”
“Yaa,” Sean agrees, then adds,
“Do ya tink maybe da sign should just say:
“BRIDGE CLOSED”? 😁😎
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“I like the way you put things together, Omlet. You’re alright with me.”
In this scene musician Ray Charles (Jamie Foxx) learns from recording executive Ahmet Ertegun (Curtis Armstrong) that Atlantic Records has just purchased his recording contract from Swingtime and that he will be getting royalties of five cents per record. He misunderstands Ahmet’s name and says the first line. Ahmet corrects him with the second. When Ray asks ” What kind of a name is that, anyway?” Ahmet explains it’s Turkish. It wasn’t till I started researching this movie that I realized Ahmet is played by the same actor that played Miles in “Risky Business” and ‘Booger’ in “Revenge of the Nerds.” In the 2005 Academy Awards, “Ray” won two Oscars, including Jamie Foxx for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. It was also nominated for Best Picture but lost to “Million Dollar Baby.”
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???

The guidelines said:
- Every camper gets their own bowl of soup.
- Every two campers will get one bowl of spaghetti to share.
- Every three campers will get one bowl of salad to share.
- All campers are required to have their own helping of salad, spaghetti, and soup.
