You mean real life doesn't work like sit-coms?

Makes more sense. Is there a deeper context I missed, or is Sandra Bullock just a convenient name?

Spending 20 to make 7 makes no sense, unless the real money

The good news is the reincarnation spell worked.' St Cross knelt and stared at her king, who giggled and ran off. 'There's some bad news'

Enemies Foreign and Domestic

In desperation, not duty, the Secret Service man leapt into the bullet's path. "At last. No more speeches," he thought.

This works whether your a Democrat, a Republican, or irrelevant... I mean, other...

(Cheap shot, could not resist... actually I'm aware that it's the ability to mind-control the independents that causes an election to go one way or ta udder.)

Oldie but Goodie

Post by Algernon Sydney is Dead » Tue Nov 03, 2009 12:36 pm

The couple was killed at their wedding and tried to continue their vows in Heaven. It took five months to locate a priest.

Oooo, low blow. Can't say the Catholic Church hasn't earned the reputation, but in all fairness I really think it's a case of the bad apples getting huge press compounded by the gross and willfull negligence of the controlling hierarchy who for years swept the problem under the rug. I have a cousin who's a priest in the Order of the Holy Reedemer, and he's actually there because of his calling, (which I'm pretty darn sure doesn't involve diddling little boys...) so this Twabble is a little like labling all Republicans as torturers, all Democrats as adultering perjurors, and all 3rd party candidates as election spoilers.

Now, now, the joke didn't specify Catholic priests. There are pagan priests, satanic priests, Episcopal, Anglican, Orthodox, Hindu, Shinto, Wiccan and Judas priests. It took 5 months to find any of them. They might have been on vacation or at a long convention. Or it might be reasonable to conclude that, heaven having no need for religious rites, they were all decommissioned on arrival.
I'm certain all the nuns hope so.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention which ones were the Republicans, and which were the Democrats. Y'all guess.

Norm warned, again, of pumpkins with evil powers. Now, mere days later, Norm has taken mysteriously ill. Coincidence?
