Dislike of proximate neighboring states is as American as apple pie, usually accompanied by hurtful slogans as "Thank God for West Virginia." In Tennessee our favorite neighboring state to ridicule was Kentucky, despite the proximity of such low-rent venues as Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas. Thus, when UK beat UT this year for the first time in 26 years this year, it really stung!

The disliked neighboring state for many Montanans seems to be Idaho.

Actually, the state name sounds like the speaker is proclaiming her membership in the Oldest Profession: "I de ho!"

Barney Frank's Nipples

Recently Slate magazine published an article entitled, "Why do nipples harden in the cold?" And from all the possible nipple-bearing candidates, they chose Representative Barney Frank. He might consider wearing a bra.

Is there a Zen lesson in here somewhere?

Three Priests Interview God

A priest from San Francisco, another one from New York, and a third one from Chicago together had an interview with God, and each was allowed one question.

The priest from San Francisco asked, "God, there are times when nature is cruel. Will there ever come a time in which there are no more earthquakes in my city?"

God replied, "There will be, but not in your lifetime."

Then the priest from New York asked, "God, we are beset with a high crime rate. Will there ever be a time when New York will be rid of crime?"

God replied, "There will be, but not in your lifetime."

Finally, the priest from Chicago asked, "God, will there ever be a time in which the Cubs win the World series?"

God replied, "There will be, but not in MY lifetime!"

Serious Alabama Fan

Alabamians has never gotten the concept of clothes properly fitting very well, and probably will not get much from her fashion-challenged boyfriends. This poor lass needs a larger top, and a nicer visor. Any maybe more fortunate people could buy her a cute bra. And get her to ditch her navel jewelry.
