Ramblings

Norma Gene Young

Recently I was looking through some old stuff I had written and ran across this, which must have been penned during a presidential election. It still makes sense.

“Some wise person should invent a light to be attached to a TV screen before elections that would come on when the candidate is lying. I heard one politician a couple of days ago who durned near lit up the set without any attached gizmo. I was pretty sure I could see the aurora borealis behind him, and I was looking south.”

Whatever prompted me to write that could not have been as bad as it is now. Will November never come?

A man walked into a police station in South Carolina, dropped a bag of cocaine on the counter, informed the desk sergeant that it was a substandard cut, and asked that the person who sold it to him be arrested immediately.

I read recently that since the Madrid bombing, France has raised its terror level from “run” to “hide”. The only higher levels in France are “surrender” and “collaborate”.

Some hints to older people in something I read recently. In case there are some “older people” reading this, here are some things that don't go together:

Nose rings and bifocals; midriff shirts and midriff bulge; short shorts and varicose veins.

My friend, John Wiggins, who grew up in Keyes, has lived in Irving, Texas for years, and I hear from him occasionally. He sent this bit of wisdom last week:

What is an oxymoron?

Definition: a rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined. (Webster's Dictionary)

Example: removing the Ten commandments from the courthouse while making people swear in court to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God, while your hand is on the Bible.
