Thursdays Tickles

Hillary Clinton called Bill Clinton into her office one day and said, "Bill, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2016!"
"Great Hillary, but how?" asked Bill. 
"We'll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most middle class Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador Retriever. Then, we'll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there."
So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman, Montana.  With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar.
The bartender took a step back and said, "Hey! Aren't you 
Bill and Hillary Clinton?"
"Yes we are!" said Hillary, "And what a lovely town you have here.   We were passing through and Bill suggested we stop and take in some local color."
They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.
A few minutes later, a grizzled old rancher came in, walked up to the Labrador, lifted up its tail, looked underneath,shrugged his shoulders and walked out. A few moments later, in came another old rancher. He walked up to the dog,  lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar.
For the next hour, another dozen ranchers came in, ​ lifted the dog's tail, and left shaking their heads.
Finally, Hillary asked, "Why did all those old ranchers come 
​ In and look under the dog's tail? Is it some sort of custom?"
"Lord no," said the bartender. "Someone's out there running around town, claiming there's a Labrador Retriever in here with two assholes!"

Russian Pop


The song is about freedom, the opportunity to go on holiday wherever you want. And what great things can happen to you:  “… A cozy cafe…With red wine…You can say that this is just a silly dream …”

The song is about loneliness, about how hard it is to “keep the mark” and still crave a close relationship.  “Stone lady …Never cries, Believes no one.  It hurts all the same…”
The Sign Of Aquarius

The song “Aquarius” is about women’s experiences.  “I gave it my all, and I don’t regret!And despite all autopilots, I live in spite of horoscopes!”
Crazy About You

The song “Crazy about you” is about love.  “You are the bright sun…We’ll wake up together…A moment of true happiness…”
I'll Follow You
The song “I’ll follow you” is about how a woman lost her head in love. "ll follow you to he ends of the earth…I’ll follow you in your footsteps…”

Wednesday Whimsy

Cowboys & Indians 
Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport lounge in Bozeman,

Montana, awaiting their flights.

One is an American Indian, passing thru from Lame Deer. Another is a

cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show. And the third is a

fundamentalist Arab student from the Middle East, newly arrived at Montana

State University. Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures.

Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim

and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The cowboy leans back in

his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big

sweat-stained hat forward over his face. The wind outside is blowing

tumbleweeds around and the old windsock is flapping, but still no plane


Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly speaks. "At one

time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few."

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, "Once my people

were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?"

The Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth, and

from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl, "That's cause we

ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's a-comin."

Big Earthquake hits the Middle East!
A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale hits the Middle East. Two million Muslims die and over a million are injured. Iraq, Iran and Syria are totally ruined and the governments don't know where to start with providing help to rebuild.

The rest of the world is in shock.

Britain is sending troops to help keep the peace.

Saudi Arabia is sending oil & monetary assistance.

Latin American countries are sending clothing.

New Zealand and Australia are sending sheep, cattle and food crops.

The Asian countries are sending labor to assist in rebuilding the

Canada is sending medical teams and supplies.

President Donald Trump, not to be outdone, is sending two million replacement Muslims.

God Bless President Trump.

H/T Steve ; ) Thank you!
