An old Jewish man reads about Einstein's theory of relativity
in the newspaper and asks his scientist grandson to explain it to him.
"Well, zayda, it's sort of like this. Einstein says that if
you're having your teeth drilled without Novocain, a minute seems like
an hour. But if you're sitting with a beautiful woman on your lap, an
hour seems like a minute."
The old man considers this profound bit of thinking for a
moment and says, "And from this he makes a living?"
-- Arthur Naiman, "Every Goy's Guide to Yiddish"

An Irishman proposed to his girl
on St. Patrick's Day and gave her

Oh, the glamor, and the clamor that attends
the affairs of state, tend to fascinate the

worth a good, slow, two inch rain.

handguns and tequila.

(via BUBBA-L and Judy Knight)

* TFTD has been unable to determine
if the 's' is supposed to be on 'exception'.


One of tftd's loyal readers thought that a previous tftd could be
improved by changing the sentence structure. It made tftd remember the
above tftd and whether the word was really 'exception' or 'exceptions'.
