Who Knows American History???
The first day of school and a new Indian student named Chandrasekhar Subramanjan entered the fourth grade.
The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History. Who said... 'Give me Liberty or give me Death?"
She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand up: "Patrick Henry, 1775," he said.
Lost in translation (Hmmm, I'm picturing Al Sharpton leading a march on Nigerian pipelines.):
[Russia's energy giant Gazprom has signed a $2.5bn (£1.53bn) deal with Nigeria's state operated NNPC, to invest in a new joint venture.
The new firm, to be called Nigaz, is set to build refineries, pipelines and gas power stations in Nigeria.] http://zerohedge.blogspot.com/2009/06/gazprom-and-state-of-nigeria-create-jv.html
"...you know, we got a little too much democracy in this country." (Jim Cramer 6/24/2009 on CNBC "Stop Trading")
"The map of the world will be displayed at eye level for Chinese President Hu Jintao's oval office meeting with Barack O' Teleprompter."
Ice Cream has issued a new flavor, "Barocky Road."
Barocky Road is a blend of half Vanilla, half chocolate, and
surrounded by nuts and flakes.
The Vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually
denied as an ingredient.
The Nuts and Flakes are all very bitter and hard to swallow.
The cost is $100.00 per scoop.
When purchased, it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone,
but then the ice cream is taken away and given to the person in line
Thus you are left with an empty wallet, no change, holding an empty
cone, with no hope of getting any ice cream.
There......Aren't you feeling stimulated?
Is any love greater than that of a mother?
excerpt from AP article:
HUNTINGDON, Pa. – A high school secretary illegally changed grades in a school computer system to improve her daughter's class standing, according to criminal charges filed Thursday.
Caroline Maria McNeal of Huntingdon is accused of using the passwords of three co-workers without their knowledge to tamper with dozens of grades and test scores between May 2006 and July 2007 at Huntingdon Area High School in central Pennsylvania, the state attorney general's office said.
McNeal, 39, is alleged to have improved her daughter Brittany's grades and reduced those of two classmates to enhance Brittany's standing in the 2008 graduating class.
American Medical Association on the Stimulus Package:
Apparently the American Medical Association has weighed in on the new economic stimulus package...
The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not
to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception.
Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said,
'Oh, Grow up!'
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.
The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic
Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter."
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were
pissed off at the whole idea.
The Anesthesiologists thought the idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to
the ***holes in Washington.
