Bud's Funnies
"Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually shut her up with cookies."
~ Anonymous
"The hardest years in life are those between ten and seventy."

I was just wondering…
Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
Why call it a building if it's already been built?
If a turtle loses its shell is it naked or homeless?
Why is it called a TV "set" when you only get one?
Why does an alarm clock "go off" when it begins ringing?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why isn't "palindrome" spelled the same way backwards as it is forwards?

Today in History May 25
In the nation’s capital, in addition to the Lincoln Memorial, there is another statue of Lincoln worth seeing. It is a sculpture in bronze in the National Cathedral, of Lincoln kneeling in prayer.

Gazing upon it, the visitor is reminded of what the President once told his future secretary, Noah Brooks: “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.”
