humor: oct 20 -- Learn from the Trees
Nick's G-Rated Humor List
Nick comments ---
Just in case you thought you were the only one
who didn't know, I got several emails asking....
"At the risk of sounding really dumb I have to ask,
what exactually is a Hittite???? I love all of your
jokes and I think the Hittite ones are funny, but I
am sure that they would make more sense if I knew what
a Hittite was."
Well, the Hittites were a race of people mentioned in the Bible
(specifically, the Old Testament). The Hittites died out long ago,
and thus cannot be upset if jokes are told about them. Jokes about
the Irish or about blondes are often demeaning and cruel, but some
can be salvaged if they are rewritten for a Hittite.
All I Need To Know About Life I Learned From Trees
============= (author unknown) ===================
>From Barbara A. Baki
It's important to have roots.
In today's complex world, it pays to branch out.
Don't pine away over old flames.
If you really believe in something, don't be afraid to go out on a limb.
Be flexible so you don't break when a harsh wind blows.
Sometimes you have to shed your old bark in order to grow.
If you want to maintain accurate records, keep a log.
To be politically correct, don't wear firs.
Grow where you're planted.
It's perfectly okay to be a late bloomer.
Avoid people who would like to cut you down.
Get all spruced up when you are meeting friends.
If the party gets boring, just leaf.
You can't hide your true colors as you approach the autumn of your life.
It's more important to be honest than poplar.
