Hello Intellects,

Share something that you find funny. A joke, an excerpt from a novel or something you came up with would be even better! Anything in literary form. Images are fine. No Videos(unless its short and absolutely hilarious!).


Thanks!

"he claims of these organizers of humanity raise another question which I have often asked them and which, so far as I know, they have never answered: If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushes headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidal course and to give it a saner direction. Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above mankind; if so, let them show their titles to this superiority.
They would be the shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority."

The Law, by Frederic Bastiat

I live and work in the Sacramento area of California - so, near central valley, hot hot hot, etc. One day I was walking to lunch from my office and I passed a house. I thought I saw out of the corner of my eye some girls sunbathing on the lawn. When I turned to look (I wasn't perving, I swear) it turned out to just be a few leathery old palm fronds that had fallen off one of the palms and dried up in the sun. I was internally amused that women who tan and sun-baked foliage appear to share roughly the same color and consistency.
