"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
C S Lewis
Now yer getting it-
here is the latest:
Little Tony was 9 years old and was staying with his grand-
mother for a few days. He'd been playing outside with the
other kids for a while when he came into the house and
asked her, 'Grandma, what's that called when two people
sleep in the same room and one is on top of the other?'
She was a little taken aback, but she decided to tell him
the truth. 'It's called sexual intercourse, darling.'
Little Tony said, 'Oh, OK,' and went back outside to play
with the other kids. A few minutes later he came back in
and said angrily, 'Grandma, it isn't called sexual inter-
course. It's called Bunk Beds. And Jimmy's mom wants to
talk to you.'

oh wow---I haven't laughed so much in a long time.....you guys are great.
I went down this morning to sign up my dog for welfare.
At first the lady said, "Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare".
So I explained to her that Molly is unemployed, lazy, can't speak English and has no frigging clue who her daddy is. She expects me to feed her, provide her with housing and medical care, and feel guilty because she is a dog.
So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify.
Molly gets her first check Friday.
