It is expensive and sour.

CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE

You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE

You break for lunch. Life is good.

They send radio tapes of their mooing.

The cow asks permission to be cut in half.
The cow dies happy.

FLORIDA CORPORATION

You have a black cow and a brown cow. Everyone votes for the best looking one. Some of the people who actually like the brown one best accidentally vote for the black one. Some people vote for both. Some people vote for neither. Some people can't figure out how to vote at all. Finally, a bunch of guys from out-of-state tell you which one you think is the best looking cow.

CALIFORNIA CORPORATION

You have millions of cows. They make real California cheese. Only five speak English. Most are illegal.
Arnold likes the ones with the big udders.

who's that girl?



Before the holidays, we featured this lovely young lady, demonstrating her obvious holiday spirit, which led to an inquiry from anonymous, asking if we knew her name.

We do not.

We would, however, very much like to. So, if anyone out there knows this young lady's name, by all means, please let us know. Leave a comment or send us an email at noddy.blue[at]yahoo.com. Thank you. And in the meantime, we pass along this link (thanks, anonymous!) to help aid in the identification:

everything to come

8 However many years a man may live,
let him enjoy them all.
But let him remember the days of darkness,
for they will be many.
Everything to come is meaningless.
