A bit of humor…Something to think about

Hi Gang:

Happy Friday!

I usually write commentaries about the madness that unfortunately we have come to expect that has become “business as usual.”

I received the humor I have provided to you from a former colleague who is a retired Border Patrol Agent and the Executive Assistant to the Chairman of an organization I am proud to have been invited to join, the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO).  Although I never did wear the Border Patrol uniform, I underwent my training at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy when I hired on with the former INS nearly 40 years ago.  I am now a member of an organization whose members subscribe to the philosophy that can be summed up by the phrase, “If we didn’t live it, we won’t talk about it!”

I hope you enjoy the humor- please check out my brief comment after you read it.


Wife’s First Golf Outing


 
Husband takes his wife to play her first game of golf.
 
Unfortunately, the wife promptly whacked her first shot right through the window of the biggest house adjacent to the course.
 
The husband cringed, ‘I warned you to be careful! Now we’ll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us.
 
So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door. A warm voice said, ‘Come on in’.

When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done…. glass was all over the place, and a broken antique bottle was lying on its side near the broken window.
 
A man reclining on the couch asked, ‘Are you the people that broke my window?’
 
‘Uh…yeah, sir. We’re really sorry about that,’ the husband replied.
 
‘Oh, no apology is necessary. Actually I want to thank you… You see, I’m a genie , and I’ve been trapped in that bottle for a thousand years. Now that you’ve released me, I’m allowed to grant three wishes. I’ll give you each one wish, but if you don’t mind, I’ll keep the last one for myself.
 
‘Wow, that’s great!’ the husband said. He pondered a moment and blurted out, ‘I’d like a million dollars a year for the rest of my life.
 
‘No problem,’ said the genie. ‘You’ve got it, it’s the least I can do. And I’ll guarantee you a long, healthy life!’
 
‘And now you, young lady, what do you want?’ the genie asked.
‘I’d like to own a gorgeous home complete with servants in every country in the world,’ she said.


‘Consider it done,’ the genie said. ‘And your homes will always be safe from fire, burglary and natural disasters!’

 

‘And now,’ the couple asked in unison, what’s your wish, genie?’
 
‘Well, since I’ve been trapped in that bottle and haven’t been with a woman in more than a thousand years, my wish is to have sex with your wife.
 
The husband looked at his wife and said, ‘Gee, honey, you know we both now have a fortune, and all those houses. What do you think?
 
She mulled it over for a few moments and said, ‘You know, you’re right. Considering our good fortune, I guess I wouldn’t mind, but what about you, honey?
 
‘You know I love you sweetheart,’ said the husband. I’d do the same for you!’
 
So the genie and the woman went upstairs where they spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying each other in every way.
 
After about three hours of non-stop sex, the genie rolled over and looked directly into her eyes and asked, ‘How old are you and your husband?
 
‘Why, we’re both 35,’ she responded breathlessly.
 
‘ REALLY!’ He said, ‘Thirty-five years old and you both still believe in genies?’



How many people do you know who remind you of the couple in the story above?  

Don’t forget that not that many years ago, some enterprising guy made a small fortune by marketing the “Pet Rock!”  He then made even more money a year or two later, by marketing the “Training Manual For The Pet Rock!”

Now I suspect you know how we have come to have the “leaders” who have been elected throughout this country!

There is a saying that “Ignorance is bliss.”  However, I think you will agree with me that ignorance is only bliss for the duplicitous politicians and greedy businessmen who have come to depend on the ignorance of their fellow Americans so that they can get away with their betrayals!

There is a better saying: “Knowledge is Power!”  

You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Lead, follow or get out of the way!
