We Live In 'Interesting Times' ...

and this week has been proof of that ... we've had a complete lunar eclipse, the KKK has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (what has been seen, cannot be unseen!), and Ralph Nader has declared his candidacy for the Presidency. Commentary on that has been priceless - I don't have enough bandwidth to cover that one, lol!

Actually, I'm having another one of those is it news, or satire moments with respect to Mr. Nader's proposed candidacy. Looks like he plans to hornswoggle either Barack or Hillary out of their hard-won victory [no matter who you like/dislike, there is no getting around the fact that whoever wins the nomination had to work hard for it]! Break out the popcorn... it's going to be a wild ride!! All that's left is for Al Gore to decide to jump in.

This election is really just to keep our minds off of the real issues at hand... like the fact that we are spending way too much time on the internet, don't have enough cash on hand, and we obsess about work. Well, here's a joke to make you chuckle:

"So, I get on the plane and I'm sitting there by the window with two vacant seats when another man sat down in the aisle seat and put his black Labrador Retriever in the middle seat next to me.

I am wondering about the dog and I ask why the dog is allowed on the plane. The second man explained that he is a DEA agent and that the dog is a 'sniffing dog'. 'His name is Sniffer and he's the best there is. I'll show you once we get airborne and I put him to work.'

The plane takes off, and once it has leveled out, the agent says: 'Watch this.' He tells Sniffer to 'search'.

Sniffer jumps down, walks along the aisle, and finally sits very purposefully next to a woman for a several seconds. Sniffer then returns to its seat and puts one paw on the agent's arm.

The agent says, 'Good boy', and he turns to the man and says, 'That woman is in possession of marijuana, so I'm making a note of her seat number and the authorities will apprehend her when we land.'

I say, 'That's pretty neat.' Once again, the agent sends Sniffer to search the aisles. The Lab sniffs about, sits down beside a man for a few seconds, returns to its seat, and this time, he places TWO paws on the agent's arm.

The agent says, 'That man is carrying cocaine, so, again, I'm making a note of his seat number for the police.'

'I like it!' I tell him. The agent then told Sniffer to 'search' again. Sniffer walked up and down the aisles for a little while, sat down for a moment, and then came racing back to the agent, jumped into the middle seat and pooped.

I was really grossed out by this behavior and can't figure out how or why a well-trained dog would act like that, so I ask the agent...'What's going on?'

The agent nervously replied, 'He just found a bomb!'"
Have a great day!! I'm going to take a nap...

Tag! You're it, LOL!
