Thread: Old Drunk
05-11-06, 12:26 AM #1
A man & his wife are dining at a table in a restaurant & the wife keeps staring at an old drunken man swigging his gin as he sits alone at a nearby table,
the husband asks , "Do you know him?"
"Yes," sighs the wife, "he's my ex-husband. he took to drinking right after we divorced seven years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since."
"My God!" says the husband, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"'The Art of War' teaches us to "Rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's coming, but on our own readiness to receive him"--Sun Tsu

Can you imagine the mayhem/injury that followed the last remark?Facta non verba

Thats a good one!It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

Ha Ha! That was good!
A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.
