    A woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist, "Paint me with diamond rings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby broach, and gold Rolex."

    "But you are not wearing any of those things," he replied.

    "I know," she said. "It's in case I should die before my husband. I'm sure he will remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry."

      I'm fine, BC. And you?
      Yes, the shenanigans of The Chubby One, and the ensuing hysteria over the US "aggression", is holding me in thrall...as is the "school lunch" controversy, which has been taken completely wrong...

    Wow, it didn't take long for the Monty Python "Funniest joke in the world" to get deleted. I guess the CNN mods didn't want anyone to die laughing.

      Are you over the CNN every-changing word count? The one we have to keep guessing at?

      I posted the "funniest joke ever" from Monty Python. It stayed there for maybe two minutes before it got deleted.

      I see the Hitler response is still there though.

      Perhaps CNN was concerned about the harm it would do.

    Three elderly ladies were at the doctor for a cognitive reasoning test.The doctor says to the first gal, "What is three times three?" "297," was her prompt reply. "Ummm humm," says the doc.The doctor says to the second lady, "It's your turn now. What is three times three?" "Friday," replies the second lady. "Ummm humm..."Then the doc says to the third, "Okay, mam, your turn. What's three times three?""Nine," she says. "That's wonderful!" says the doc. "Tell me, how did you get that?""Simple," she says, beaming... "I subtracted 297 from Friday!"

    "As Korea Turns" is now deemed not the soap it has always been.
    US moves Chemical Battalion to S.Korea as North moves its missiles.

      Good afternoon saywhat

      The movement of the chemical battalion in S. Korea would fall under the category of contingency planning. Given the tensions that are present on the penninsula at this time, it is very wise that any scenario is planned for. Hostilities may or may not erupt, but it is better to be prepared than caught with your pants down.

    While leading the Friday evening services, the Rabbi noticed a member of the congregation, Bernie, walk in with a St. Bernard dog. The Rabbi, horrified, asked the Cantor to continue the service and went to talk to Bernie. Rabbi: "What are doing here with a dog?" Bernie: "The dog came here to pray." "Oh, come on." says the Rabbi. "YES!" says Bernie. Rabbi: "I don't believe you. You are just fooling around; that's not a proper thing to do in temple." Bernie: "Its true!".. "Ok", says the Rabbi, "then show me what the dog can do." "OK" says Bernie nodding to the dog...The dog proceeds to open up the barrel under his neck and removes a yarmulke, a tallis (puts them on his head) and prayer book and actually starts saying prayers in Hebrew! The Rabbi is so shocked he listens for a full 15 minutes. When the Rabbi regains his composure, he is so impressed with the quality of the praying he says to Bernie. "Do you think your dog would consider going to Rabbinical school????" Bernie, throwing up his hands in disgust says, "YOU TALK TO HIM! He wants to be a doctor!"

    Why have things been allowed to come to this?
    Could Un have been engaged & tackled differently when new leadership emerged in the North?

    Did world powers fail somehow in getting a concerted effort going to get the North act differently?

      Isn't US intervention being frowned upon right now? This was the vibe I got from commenters.

      But then, I agree that the US isn't the only world power.
