Very Inspiring Stuff


Where are you going?

'To the debates.'

I thought you stayed away from politics?

'That was yesterday.
Before I decided I would get into comedy.
Yesterday...
One of the debaters accused the other,
Of being a 'Capitalist'.
Because he actually stated...
He had 'no' lack of fear of cutting jobs,
To aid big business.
And...
Just a week ago they were all accusing,
The current leader for being a 'Socialist'.
With claims he was against 'Capitalism'.'

That's nuts.

'No.
That's politics.
I wish I had known earlier in my career,
It was this funny.
I am getting some great material.
Very inspiring stuff.'

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
