      @ Mary

      Maybe you're right. I know yesterday was really strange. They were letting me post one word at at time, then deleted that as well.

    An old guy and his son had a one-mule farm where they eked out a living. One day, the son hit the lottery and won $50,000. He rushed into town, collected his money, then hurried back home, where he told his father the good news, and handed him $50 bill.

    The father looked at the money for a moment and then said, "Son, you know I've always been careful with what little money we had. I didn't spend it on whiskey or women. In fact, I couldn't even afford a license to legally marry your Ma."

    "Pa!" the son exclaims, "do you know what that makes me?"

    "Sure do," said the old guy fingering the fifty-dollar bill. "And a cheap one, too."

    Once upon a time there was a cable news network with a lack of ability because no one could be bothered with anything like that and they didn't feel like they got paid enough anyway.

    The end.

    The bartender asks the guy sitting at the bar, "What'll you have?" The guy answers, "A scotch, please." The bartender hands him the drink, and says "That'll be five dollars," to which the guy replies, "What are you talking about? I don't owe you anything for this."
    A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, "You know, he's got you there. In the original offer, which consti tutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration."
    The bartender was not impressed, but says to the guy, "Okay, you beat me for a drink. But don't ever let me catch you in here again."
    The next day, same guy walks into the bar. Bartender says, "What the heck are you doing in here? I can't believe you've got the audacity to come back!"
    The guy says, "What are you talking about? I've never been in this place in my life!" The bartender replies, "I'm very sorry, but this is uncanny. You must have a double."
    To which the guy replies, "Thank you. Make it a scotch."
