Happy Friday the 13th! Let’s kick the day off with a pair of jokes.
I recently came across a rather interesting insight into the life and trials of Mahatma Ghandi. As I am sue you are aware, Ghandi was widely recognized as a political and spiritual leader in India and around the world.
Much of his travel was done very simply by walking barefoot. All the walking resulted in very think and hard skin on the soles of his feet, He also went on many hunger strikes during his life to protest the conditions of his people. These repeated hunger strikes took a toll on his health to the point that he became quite thin and frail. Furthermore, due to his strict diet, he wound up with very bad breath.
So, all this leads us to conclude a little known fact that Ghandi became a super-calloused fragile mystic vexed by halitosis!, (Don’t you feel better for knowing that?)
Our recent vacation included some air travel and we all know what an ordeal air travel can be. While we were making our way through the TSA checkpoints at CVG we were behind an individual who turned out to be a public school teacher. As his bag was being examined they noticed that included in his carry-on bag was a compass, a protractor, and a graphing calculator. This caused a lot of concern for the TSA agents. Several of them took him aside and began to question him. It appears that they suspected that he might be a member of the notorious Al-Gebra group. I heard they were planning on charging hi with trying to transport weapons of math instruction.
