Volume 47 - No. 31

by Friedrich Gomez

The year is 1983 and Rodney Dangerfield is breaking Johnny Carson up with a steady stream of “no respect” jokes: “My wife and I made a deal to try to stop smoking. We only smoke after sex. I have the same pack since 1975. What bothers me is that my wife is up to three packs a day!” Dangerfield is on a roll and his nonstop jokes are slaying both Carson and The Tonight Show audience: “I know my wife cheats on me, cause every time I come home the parrot screams: QUICK -- OUT THE WINDOW!” A sympathetic Carson asks Dangerfield, “Didn’t you ever have luck with women?”

It’s a perfect setup line for a joke and Dangerfield pounces on it: “Johnny, I tell ya, I’m no ladies man. One girl called and told me, ‘Come over, there’s nobody home.’ I went over – there was nobody home!” We Americans love telling jokes. In fact we love telling jokes so much that we arbitrarily made August 16 a national “To Tell A Joke” day here in the United States. To Tell A Joke Day is not really an official day of observance that is sanctioned by congressional or presidential decree, so its pedigree is somewhat a questionable one.

We Americans have no equal as inventors of fun and frolic. If you doubt this, merely log on to https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/fun to view that every one of our 365 days of the year has a special day of observance. Some are so ridiculous as to make you smile or even laugh out loud. Here is an actual sampling: January 16: “Nothing Day.” January 21: “Squirrel Appreciation Day.” February 1: “Work Naked Day.” February 23: “International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day.” May 5: “No Pants Day.” May 14: “Dance Like a Chicken Day.” July 27: “Take Your Pants for a Walk Day.” September 28: “Ask a Stupid Question Day.” Theoretically, some of these calendarmarked days could, conceivably, get us into trouble. Such as June 2, which is, “Leave the Office Early Day.”

Even our revered Mother’s Day in America is fodder for the cannons of joke-telling. Humorists are quick to point out that Mother’s Day can prove awkward for Hollywood celebrities, who are well-known for their multiplemarriages. As one comedian quipped, “They have so many divorces in Hollywood that there are even

Hallmark stores with cards for the children of multiple-marriages that read, for example: Happy Mother’s Day to My No.7 Mom.”

As another comic observes, “Hollywood marriages are so short and frequent that they, customarily, just throw Minute Rice at the newlyweds.”

Only we Americans can turn the most mundane days of the calendar into a colorful excuse to celebrate life and share a hearty laugh along the way. And what’s wrong with that reasoning? After all, laughter is the best medicine and God only knows that sharing mirth and creating smiles is not a bad excuse for placing such a day of observance on our calendar.

THE LEGACY. Some pockets of America are especially well-known for their joke-telling legacy, such as in the famed Jewish Alps, the nickname for

Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12

the celebrated Catskill Mountains that once reigned the world and begat some of the greatest Jewish-American comedians in history.

Also, Miami Beach, Florida, where many famous Jewish-American comics retire. Jewish comedian Jack Carter quips, “Miami Beach is the retirement capitol of the world! In fact, if you were to get all the senior citizens in just Miami Beach, alone, and lie them all down end-to-end . . . very few of them would be able to get up, again!” Legendary American comedian, Freddie Roman, adds to Jack Carter’s remarks: “Let’s not forget Atlantic City, New Jersey! That’s a retirement Mecca for old comedians! In fact, the slot machines at Atlantic City don’t have cherries or apples – they have prunes! The winner gets 5 prunes in a row and he goes to the crap tables!”

AMERICAN HUMOR IS EVERYWHERE. Laughter and humor can be found anywhere, anytime in America, like un-mined nuggets of gold in our real day-to-day existence. In fact, comedians often say they don’t have to make up some of their jokes – they just look around and find it in real life. Famed American humorist, Will Rogers (1879-1935) said, “I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.” Often comedic wordplay can put a spin on an otherwise normal situation, transforming the situation from the ordinary to the laughable. JOKES UNDER THE RADAR. Telling a joke can also create a hilarious image and situation which forces the listener to complete the punchline within their own imagination. A classic example of this occurred on The Tonight Show when comedian Buddy

Hackett unleashed one of the funniest jokes to Johnny Carson without being censored: A lady goes to the dentist and the dentist looks in her mouth and says, “lady, that tooth has to come out,” and the lady says, “Are you kidding?! I’d rather have a baby!” And the dentist says, “Well make up your mind, lady, ‘cause I have to adjust your chair.” THE FIRST JOKE. America didn’t invent joke-telling. Far from it. But it remains one of our favorite pastimes.

The history of the joke is a long one, whose actual beginnings disappear down through even prehistoric times, it is believed. However, the world’s oldest (verifiable) jokes trace back almost 4,000 years to what is currently known as southern Iraq. It was there where archaeologists unearthed joke-writings from the ancient civilization of Sumeria (Sumer). And it seems the ancients were tickling each other’s funny bones with flatulent (fart) jokes. So it appears we have not strayed too far from our ancient cousins.

AMERICA’S TOP SECRET JOKES. Even during the most serious and bleakest times of espionage and national security, no other country on Earth coveted humor and joke-telling more than America, where telling jokes can be traced to the most unlikeliest segments of our culture. For example, from the deep shadowy suspicions begat from the Cold War era, there recently emerged a treasure trove of CIA declassified jokes from the 1980s which, as stated by directors

of our top secret spy agency: “Offer a glimpse of how American spies during the Cold War enjoyed a good laugh at the expense of their enemy.”

Yes, you read that correctly. Even our American top secret espionage networks actually had their own cache of classified jokes which they shared amongst themselves – all kept under secret wraps, until now.

It is all part of a 13-million-page CIA declassified file, released on September 9, 2013. Peter Clement, deputy assistant director of the CIA for Europe and Eurasia explains: “These jokes were lively entertainment in CIA offices. The U. S. Embassy in Moscow would send in a ‘joke cable,’ usually annually, listing some of the better jokes that they had picked up.” These erstwhile top secret jokes were a welcomed comic-relief from the stress and danger of our covert operations overseas.

Here is a sampling of these declassified jokes, some of which leaked into mainstream America prior to their official declassification status: An American tells a Russian that the United States is so free that he can stand in front of the White House and yell, “To hell with Ronald Reagan!” The Russian replies, “This is nothing. I can stand in front of the Kremlin and yell, ‘To hell with Ronald Reagan,’ too.” Peter Clement, of the CIA, adds: “They (the jokes) were very reflective of the public mood. We (CIA personnel) all looked forward to getting these jokes.” Another joke which became a favorite Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby; and here is the reason for my conclusion.

A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "it might be nice to have another child." On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts." I rest my case.

The best form of birth control after 50? Nudity.

A woman's work is never done . . . because they don't get up early enough. When you think about it, God is the greatest inventor of all. He took a rib and made it into a loudspeaker.

Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?

Let’s have a moment of silence for all those who are stuck in traffic on the way to the gym to ride a stationary bicycle.

Finally I thought about an age old question:

Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts.

Well, after another beer, and some heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with the answer to that question.

of the CIA was this one: A Russian man in a liquor line says, “I have had enough, save my place, I am going to shoot Gorbachev!” Two hours later he returns to reclaim his place in line. His friends ask, “Did you get him?” And he replies, “No, the line there is longer than the line here!” These ‘forbidden’ jokes became so popular with our Americans serving in the foreign intelligence agencies that they were collected for annual Christmas gifts for our CIA spies, as Clement explains: “At the end of the year, they would do kind of an annual round-up, kind of holiday gift, if you will.” BEST JOKE OF THE WORLD CONTEST. To Tell A Joke Day here in America is bigger than you might realize. Reader’s Digest conducted a “Best Joke of the World Contest” and over 100 different countries crashed our party. Ironically, we Americans – who sponsored the event and judged the outcome -- did not even win a top 10 spot after the judging. Ouch.

Sweden won the American contest. Herewith, was the Reader’s Digest “Best Joke of the World Contest” winner submitted by a Swedish standup comedian: A city slicker was hunting out in the Swedish countryside and shoots a duck. The duck falls into a farmer’s field, and the hick farmer claims it. Since both want it, the farmer suggests they settle the dispute in an old fashioned country manner called the ‘hick-kick.’ The country bumpkin explains to the city-slicker hunter how this works: “I kick you as hard as I can in the crotch, then you do the same to me. Whoever screams the least gets the bird.” The city man agrees. So the farmer winds up and

Well, here is a story that clearly shows not all cops are in that category.

This story involves the police department in the small hill country town of Fredericksburg , TX who reported finding a man's body last Saturday, in the early evening, in the Pedernales River near the state highway-87 bridge. The dead man's name would not be released until his family had been notified. The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption while visiting "someone" in Kerrville. He was wearing black fishnet stockings, 4 inch spiked heels, a red garter belt, a pink Gstring, purple lipstick, dazzle dust on his eyelids, 2 1/2 inch false eyelashes and an Obama T-shirt.

The police removed the Obama T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment. See there, Texas Police do care .... Difficulty of English

delivers a crushing kick to the man’s privates, and the hunter collapses to the ground. Twenty minutes later, when the hunter finally composes himself and manages to stand up, he gasps and says, “Okay, my turn.” The farmer then says, “Nah, you keep the duck.” (American comedian, Buddy Hackett (1924-2003) told a version of this joke on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show back in the 1980s, which devastated Johnny and the studio audience.)

JOKES FROM AROUND THE WORLD. Down through the years, many overseas jokes have found their way into our American collection. So it is not surprising that you may have already heard of them from our own home-grown standup comedians. Here is a sampling of popular jokes from various countries.

FRANCE. An age-old popular joke which continues to be highly popular in France (it shows its age by the old currency expressed) goes as follows: “You’re a very high-priced lawyer. If I give you 800 francs will you answer two questions?” The lawyer answers, ‘Absolutely! Now, what’s the second question?’”

GERMANY. A lengthy discussion takes place on how to best forecast the weather by using the family dog. The best way is to place the family dog outside in the back yard and examine the state of its fur. The written idea ends with: “Of course, to be able to tell the weather like this, you have to leave the dog outside all the time, especially if you expect bad weather. Sincerely, the cat.”

3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse. 4) We must polish the Polish furniture.

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out. 6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present. 8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes. 10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid. 12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

13) They were too close to the door to close it. 14) The buck does funny things when the does are present. 15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

AMERICA VS. OTHER COUNTRIES. Ever since Sweden won America’s “Best Joke of the World Contest” sponsored by Readers Digest, telling jokes have now grown to international competitions between various countries. Last year, CNN covered a To-Tell-A-Joke contest last August 23, 2016, at the world’s largest arts festival. Ten judges were assembled in Scotland at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival where the crowds numbering in the thousands were left to vote their favorite rib-tickler. The U. K. won this global contest with British comedian, Masai Graham, from West Bromich, England, who also won the UK Championship at the Leicester Comedy Festival.

Scientists from around the world are studying what makes people laugh, and why some things are funny to some cultures and not necessarily so in others. In studying such cultural differences and attitudes, a pattern seemed to emerge. For example, Germans were the most likely to find all types of jokes funny – which explodes an age-old myth that Germans have little sense of humor, while Canadians were the leastamused out of the top 10 responding nations. This has proven to be a fascinating study of cultural differences.

Computer analysis also threw up a number of interesting “facts” regarding the rudiments of telling a joke, especially with our international neighbors. For example, length seems to matter with several countries – jokes containing 103 words or more proved

to be especially funny. The winning joke in one world competition was 102 words long.

Point in fact, in the judging, one of America’s strongest and funniest joke entries for the judges was this 153word joke narrative: A doctor places an elderly man on a strict diet in order for him to start losing weight. The doctor says, “Now listen carefully. Every 7 days you pee on this stick and if the stick turns purple, you’re losing weight.” The doctor then pauses and continues, “And if your shoe turns yellow, you missed the stick.”

American jokes which scored very high both here and in Europe, may fizzle badly in Far Eastern countries such as Japan, China, and Korea. Many Asians could not understand the humor in the following U. S. narrative: A elderly man goes to the doctor and says, “Doctor, I can’t pee.” And the doctor asks, “How old are you?” The patient answers, “I’m 97 years old.” The doctor then shrugs and says, “Well, you’ve peed enough.”

What’s funny in America, often stays in America.

Further research showed that the British, Irish, Australians, and New Zealanders (as a whole), favored puns involving wordplay, such as with this one from the United Kingdom of a British man being processed at a very busy hospital: “Doctor, I feel like a deck of cards,” and the doctor replies, “I’ll deal with you later.” Also, this pun from the United States using wordplay was an instant hit with the British, Irish, Australians and New Zealanders: A medical receptionist tells the psychiatrist, “Doctor, there’s a patient waiting to see you who thinks

he’s invisible.” The shrink says, “Tell him I can’t see him.”

However, on mainland Europe, continental Europeans liked jokes with surreal humor. Surreal is defined as things that seem bizarre or irrational or illogical as often found in a dream state. Here is an example of surreal humor from Greece that scored high in global competition.

GREECE: A barber, a bald man, and an absent-minded professor take a journey together. They have to camp overnight, and so decide to take turns watching the luggage. When it’s the barber’s turn, he gets bored during his night-watch so he amuses himself by shaving the head of the absent-minded professor. When the professor is woken up for his shift, he feels his own head and says, “How stupid is that barber?! He’s woken up the bald man instead of me!” This remains a classic example of surreal or illogical humor, widely-popular with our European cousins. The Associated Press covered an exclusive story of another ongoing scientific study called “Laugh Lab” in England. By gaining new insight on how to make different cultures laugh together, the research group hopes to spread inter-cultural goodwill. As recently-crowned world champion standup comedian, Harith Iskander, quips: “You can’t fight when you’re laughing.” Normally, the happiest years of human beings are during childhood (normal-

On Saturday, August 5, at 9:10 p.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to the intersection of Carlsbad Village Drive and Jefferson Street regarding a report of a vehicle that collided with a pedestrian.

Upon arrival, Officers found a 2010 Hyundai Elantra with moderate damage to the hood. Officers also found a 30 year old white female, who sustained head injuries, laying in the traffic lanes of Carlsbad Village Drive. The Carlsbad Fire Department provided advanced life support to the pedestrian. She was subsequently transported to an area hospital for her injuries. An initial investigation revealed that the pedestrian was crossing the street against a red light. The pedestrian was travelling north through the intersection when the driver of the vehicle, who was travelling east, collided with the pedestrian. The severity of the pedestrian’s injuries are unknown at this time. The Carlsbad Police Department Traffic Division responded to the scene to conduct a full investigation into the cause of the collision. Former Headmaster Gets 48 Year Prison Term

Furing the hearing Barton claimed he was innocent during the hearing in the Vista courtroom of Superior Court Judge Harry Elias. Barton claimed he was innocent and this his accusers were lying..

In June, a jury found Barton guilty of molesting the Army and Navy Academy student from 1999 to 2001, both on campus and during out-of-town trips. The victim said the abuse started when he was 14 and a cadet at the seaside academy where Barton lived and taught. Related

into an Escondido home on Friday, a woman and a boy in a home in Escondido suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Ford F-150 swerved to avoid an SUV and crashed into the home on East Ohio Avenue at North Ash Street about 6 p.m.

“I believe there is evidence that shows that these offenses were committed in a serial manner over a period of time,” the judge said.

The 70-year-old woman and boy inside the home suffered minor cuts. Medics treated them at the scene.

The prosecution had shown corroborating evidence, including contemporaneous suspicions from adults at the school, and other accusers dating back decades.

It was unclear which driver was at fault. The pickup driver was being evaluated to determine if he was under the influence of drugs, police said. He was not immediately arrested.

We finally retrieved them, much to Evelyn's relief. No longer will we take them for car rides without hooking up the leashes before letting them out of the car.

Man About Town

Bad Dog(s)!?

Our two pups continue to entertain us, amaze us, and, sometimes, upset us.

We thought we had them pretty well trained and in a routine . . . to the point that we didn't really need their leashes when we took them for car rides. They would zip into the car, enjoy the ride, and then, upon return, leave the car and head right for the garage door entry. Wrong!

Yesterday, evelyn took them on a mail run. However, upon return, and for the first time ever, the dogs dashed out of the car and took off like bats out of hell and ran right across the busy street and began yapping and challenging a couple dogs across the street that were inside a fenced property; Cindy then followed a woman who was walking and commenced barking at her . . . all the while with mommy (Evelyn) fran-

Upon reflection, Evelyn and I both agreed that we would have been devastated had a car come along and hit either one or both of them and killed them. We also felt that if only one pup had been killed the other would be equally devastated. They absolutely love one another. They nap together, sleep together, play together . . . but they are also both very possessive and jealous.

We come home and we can't pick both of them up at once . . . so whichever one gets picked up and greeted first, the other is mad as hell and tries to nip the other.

If one pup jumps up on my lap and I start petting her and the other one approaches . . . we have growling (stay away, he's MY daddy!), sometimes breaking into a dogfight; other times one will cozy in next to my left thigh, the other cozies into my right thigh . . . same with Evelyn. Kinda unpredictable.

Yesterday, another unusual incident . . . also for the first time ever. A gent stopped by the house to pick up a back issue of The Paper. I was busy on the phone so Evelyn answered the door and got the paper for the guy. Then they chatted for awhile and both pups licked his shoes, rubbed up against him, and tried to make friends. Then, the guy stood up, reached out to shake hands

In spite of over 100 faculty members who complained about the managment and teaching style of Syed Hussain and demanded that his contract not be renewed, the Board of Trustees failed to act and Hussain’s contract automatically renewed for two more years. Now, belatedly, the board has opted to buy out the balance of his contract. Hussain was being paid $137,185 per year and he automatically got a pay raise to $144, 112; he had been placed on leave but continued to draw his salary and benefits. He had initially been hired as dean of instructional arts, media, business and computer sciences in August, 2016. Faculty members complain that his management style was one of bullying and combative and was placing money above education by demanding more online classes. Faculty members are reported to be furious at the waste of money that could have been saved had the board simply not allowed his contract to be extended and allowed to expire.

Good friend, George Burrola, owner of Aloha Printing, has donated a half page color ad in last week’s issue of The Paper to let readers know of a great golf tournament coming up this Monday at Twin Oaks Golf Course at 1425 N. Twin Oaks Valley Rd. George, he with the eternal jovial smile, chose to promote this golf tournament instead of his own printing business because he is a giver - and because he supports his community and the beneficiaries of this tournament, the San Marcos Boys and Girls Club and the San Marcos Rotary Charity Partners.

Disruptive Kids, Bad Parents

Dear Lyle,

Thank you for your comments in The Paper about disruptive children in restaurant. We are very tired of the total lack of some modern parents to control their kids in public places. and have also asked them to control their children. The usual response has been one of total disregard. (“Who are you to tell me what to do with my children?”)

What is it with today’s parents who do not teach their children manners and responsibility? When our children were young this was rarely a problem. We learned from our parents and our children learned from us. Behave, or we leave! And we

dinner at the close of the day. Net proceeds go to charity and you’ll have had a day on the links with some mighty fine people! Thanks to our printer, George Burrola, and his brilliant crew at Aloha Printing for helping make this happen!

I’m more and more impressed with the Voice of San Diego - a news organization formed by the late Neil Morgan, brilliant columnist and editor for the old San Diego Union, that researches and presents fact based journalism. Most recently, their investigation, along with others, uncovered a scandal within SANDAG, (San Diego Association of Governments). That scandal discovered, and documented, that SANDAG management and staff had misled San Diego area voters on Measure A, a tax increase proposal for increased revenue to SANDAG based on intentionally inaccurate forecasts. To a little ol’ country boy like me, that sounds a whole lot like fraud.

Staffers claim that they felt agency leaders were directing them to hide and/or delete documents related to the scandal as it was unfolding.

SANDAG’s Executive Director, Gary Gallegos, is on the hot seats as SANDAG board members are not happy with the revelations. They have voted to conduct a performance review of Gallegos. Given the circumstances and the mood of the board, Mr. Gallegos may be just a wee bit nervous these days. Voice of San Diego is a must read. Contact them for a free subscription at: info@voiceofsandiego.org. It’s time well spent. We also donate to them.

ly-speaking), and it is during these formative years that scientists are aware that we laugh the most during our respective existence on this planet of ours. Research clearly shows that from birth to the age of 4, infants and children laugh 200-300 times a day. In contrast, adults (who often learn stress, hate, and prejudice) only laugh 4 to 20 times a day.

BENEFITS OF TELLING JOKES. Hosting these huge international tell-ajoke festivals and contests serve a lot more than initially meets the eye (or mind). As one source puts it, “Laughter brings people closer together, succeeding where diplomacy and democracy have failed. It is a universal language. These comedic events highlight an alternative to ambassadorship – a long overlooked alternative which fosters genuine diplomacy through a simple belly laugh.”

One American joke which brought huge belly laughs that united constituents from different countries to revel-in was this one: Two senior citizens are sitting in the park chatting. When they both stood up, one is a little unsteady and says, “Oh my God, my behind fell asleep!” And the other one says, “I know, I could hear it snoring!” In addition to laughter bringing the world closer together, there is an added bonus to many of these laugh-off competitions. For example, America’s Laugh Factory, based in Hollywood, California now hosts “The Funniest Person In the World Contest,” which was just held 8 months ago in Europe, from December 4-10, 2016. It accomplished what many political organiza-

tions failed at. Through fun and laughter, it brought 56 different countries from around the world together to help, as CNN World News reported: “To make world history by presenting representatives from various countries, together, promoting world peace through infectious, harmonious laughter.”

behind it all. As was released to the press corps, her noble intentions were: “To use comedy as a bridge between cultures, with the goal of celebrating our similarities – and differences.”

And, to reiterate, the plight of starving children around the world was acknowledged and met with a most positive gesture – all in the name of helping bring smiles, joy, and laughter to an often dark world.

These international laugh competitions proved to be a super gigantic success. Just imagine, this one global event was viewed by over 70-million people from around the world who voted on the “2016 Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person In the World Contest.” (Comics representing different countries submitted a 3-minute video of their jokes, which were uploaded to the Laugh Factory’s official website.)

COUNTRIES THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD. Many times representatives from countries which we normally do not think of as being particularly funny, often surprise in big-league competitions. It is an educational eyeopener to see these countries sparkle and shine along with the best comedians on the planet.

The United States did not win the cosmopolitan competition of jokesters but the camaraderie was priceless.

Russia’s entry into world joke competitions is a milestone in opening up new doors of communication and goodwill. Russian comedians are aware of how the outside world perceives them and, consequently, are quick to poke fun at themselves: “I know, I know – all of you are asking yourselves the same question -- why do we Russians all sound like we are talking backwards?”

The grand prize of $100,000 (U. S. dollars) went to Harith Iskander, from the country of Malaysia. Alex Calleja, from the Philippines took 2nd place ($10,000), and Katerina Vrana, from the country of Greece, snagged 3rd place ($5,000). However, the biggest winners were the starving children of the world. “All profits generated from this worldwide comedic extravaganza were donated to “Feed the Children,” a charity whose mission is to stop children’s world hunger. In many ways, the United States was the biggest ‘winner’ of all, for it was the good ol’ U.S.A which created this biennial event in the first place (next world competition is in 2018). America’s Laugh Factory founder and CEO, Jamie Masada, was the architect

Are Russian comedians really making their presence known in the world of comedy? If this is truly happening – within Russia, itself – then, the power of comedy is one of the most underestimated forces unfolding in our epic, human drama. Consider the following. Russian comedian, Ivan Urgant, has broken down barriers with his often irreverent humor and has even been chastised by the neighboring Ukraine foreign ministry, yet the 35-year-old comic remains one of Russia’s biggest television celebrities today. Urgant’s

Most recently, the late-night show host, Urgant, ignited political controversy when he made an off-handed remark about the massacre of Ukrainian civilians by Russian security services on another one of his shows, “Smak,” in which he interviews celebrities while cooking with them.

Urgant’s incendiary remark caused such a political uproar, especially with the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, that Ivan eventually apologized for his bad taste in making political levity. (The remark was in reference to an estimated 2-million Ukrainian civilians which were killed in the years that followed the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.) Despite the apology which was issued just 3 months ago, angry Ukrainians

pelted pictures of Ivan Urgant outside the Russian Embassy in Kiev.

More recently, in June of this year, American comedian, Stephen Colbert, CBS host of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” flew to Moscow to appear on Ivan Urgant’s late night show. The politically taboo subject of Russia’s alleged criminal collusion in President Donald Trump’s campaign was implied as having “really happened” in Colbert’s jokes: “I am so honored to be here right now. This is the State television, so you’re officially an employee of the State; I am here to announce my presidential candidacy in America for 2020.” Then, Colbert dropped the incendiary bomb implying the guilt of Russian collusion with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign: “I thought it would be better to cut out the middleman (Russia) and just tell the Russians myself. If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an (unofficial) capacity, please let me know.” International political observers remain stunned as to the uncensored latitude granted on the Russian talk show. To this day, it remains a high mystery how comedy can often go where no diplomats have ever dared go before. Colbert finished off his politically-combustible remark with: “So we – what’s the word for it . . . colluded, that I would be on your show, so I now look forward to going back to America and testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee about colluding with Russians.”

The Russian studio audience laughed and applauded and, remarkably, the entire segment was broadcast – wholly uncensored. Controversy aside, Russian comedians have proven to be among the world’s funniest in the world, such as Yakov Smirnoff (who now lives in the United States). Yakov Smirnoff plays the top comedy venues in America, including Las Vegas and he pokes fun of his Russian roots. As Yakov says in one of his routines, “In America, you watch television. In Russia, television watches you!” Yakov’s jokes reflect his own culture’s inhibitions and restrictions, such as this humorous jab from his Russian colleagues: An American dog, a Polish dog, and a Russian dog are sitting together. The American dog says, “In my country if you bark long enough, you will be given some meat.” And the Polish dog says, “What is meat?” Finally, the Russian dog says, “What is ‘bark?”

The old adage that leaders of various countries may not get along with each other, but the common people have no axe to grind with their counterparts, seems to hold true. Russian people, like everyone else, enjoy a good laugh. Inside Russia today, one of the more popular jokes which reflects a healthy sense of humor among the common masses, goes as follows: A patient asks his nurse, “Where are we going?” The nurse replies, “To the morgue.” The patient says, “But, I’m not dead yet.” And the nurse says, “We’re not there yet.” This Russian joke elicits laughter, but, it also reveals a prevailing mistrust of authority.

In last year’s 2016 world joke competitions, many countries which we thought did not possess much humor

surprised everyone. Arab and various Muslim countries, for example – took top honors. As did standup comics representing the country of Russia.

Russia’s comedy giant, Igor Meerson, was funny enough to be in Round One of last year’s world comedy competitions, while most other countries were eliminated. Omar Ramzi, representing Saudi Arabia received over 400,000 worldwide votes which catapulted him into the world Semi-Finals. Aside from the country of Malaysia taking first place, Pakistan shocked the international gallery by placing 4th overall (Pakistan being recognized as having one of the largest populations of Muslims). Saudi Arabia, the Ukraine, China, and Germany also surprised almost 60 countries by making the world Semi-Finals leaving defeated rivals in their wake. Slovenia, Croatia, and the United Arab Emirates all proved to be among the funniest on the planet.

UNITING THE WORLD WITH JOKES. What better way than for 56 different nations to come together and laugh together, network together through mirth, joy, and understanding? The age-old adage that “Laughter is the Best Medicine” may yet prove to be a long over-looked piece of a vital human puzzle – the grand mosaic puzzle – in which laughter may be the missing piece which helps unite and complete the portrait of a world finally at peace and harmony. Incredibly, laughter is breaking down cultural barriers which we never before thought possible. Russian comedian, Yakov Smirnoff, gives us a glimpse of a brave new world, if only we will pay heed: “If love is the treasure, laughter is the key.”

JOKES CAN IMPROVE HEALTH. Laughter and a sense of humor seems to have boundless benefits for a troubled, spinning world of ours. Science has even proven that laughter boosts the human immune system by releasing endorphins and antibody-producing T-cells. The latest medical and health researchers found: “Laughter even produces a good workout for the heart. Your heart is a muscle and, like any muscle in your body, it gets stronger and functions better when exercised. Regular laughter is like getting a gym membership for your heart. It reduces the likelihood of heart disease.”

AMERICA’S LOVE AFFAIR WITH JOKES. Here in America – the greatest country on planet Earth – joke telling and homegrown humor permeates our culture and our day-today lives and defines us, uniquely, as Americans. Even our U. S. Presidents hire comedians and comedy writers to punch-up their speeches and make joke-telling an art form among our political leaders. Canadian-born American comedian, Mort Sahl (1927 to present) was vastly popular to the point where John F. Kennedy asked him to write jokes for his campaign speeches. Today, that legacy continues with comedian Jon Lovett who has written jokes for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. (Jon Lovett is not to be confused with Jon Lovett of Saturday Night Live fame.)

Comedian and joke-writer, David Litt, was in the employ of President Barack Obama, giving the past president great material for telling jokes, especially for Obama’s various social gatherings, such as at the 2012 White House Correspondent’s Dinner where the president’s jokes were a highlight of the event. One of Litt’s jokes which

Women in Today's California

Only 26 of the California Legislature’s 120 members are women -- nine Senators and 17 Assemblymembers. Women serve at all levels of leadership, including my position as Minority Floor Leader and Senator Patricia Bates, the current Senate Minority Leader. Surprisingly, no woman was elected to the State Senate until 1976, and none were elected to the Assembly until 1918, having received the right to vote in 1911. When I was elected in 2012, I was the 138th woman elected to the Legislature.

While men hold 1,735 city council slots in California’s 482 cities, women hold 795 council seats, 46% of the total. 72 cities (15%) have a majority of women on the council and 137 (28%), have a woman mayor. 56 cities (12%) have no women on the council. At the county level, women hold 76 of 296 supervisor seats (25.6%), and five counties, including Los Angeles, have a female majority. Currently, 14 counties have no

female supervisors.

Women bring a different perspective to elective positions. As a wife and mother, my family’s health and well-being are always priorities. The need to balance home, family, my small business and legislative duties guides me in my committees, the bills I have introduced and co-authored, and my keen desire to make sure California remains safe, prosperous and economically viable for our children’s future. Today some barriers that once kept women from positions of leadership are largely gone, but in politics the issues of money, time away from home and negativity in the election process are some reasons more women are not stepping into the political arena. Inspiring and encouraging women leaders can enhance public policy discussions and political engagement.

never made the cut was this one for Barack Obama: “You know, I think no matter what else happens, I’m going down in history as America’s first black president.”

Humor and telling jokes run deep in our American culture. Among U. S. Presidents, most historians give the nod to Abraham Lincoln as the wittiest of all past American presidents. He was funny without the benefit of joke writers: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” Then there was Franklin D. Roosevelt who, after being told his wife was in prison (not true), he quipped: “I’m not surprised. But what for?”

Recently, on our American calendar, July 1st was International Joke Day. This August 16 is To Tell A Joke Day. Why not join all the fun by sharing a good-natured laugh. It can increase your mental and physical health. And you may even be surprised at creating many new, wonderful friends – all through the power of laughter.

Editor’s Note: This is Friedrich’s 78th cover story for The Paper. As you have seen, he is a prolific writer and has at least one, maybe two, funny bones.

Oh . . . and I never said what he said I said. It was a joke. Just a joke. I am very sophisticated and would never tell a joke. Or laugh.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

‘The Battling Bastards of Bataan’

One of the best examples of America at its most unprepared and inept was the retreat of the untrained, ill-equipped with obsolete weapons, and poorly led U.S. Army units on the main Philippine island of Luzon at the beginning of World War II. The 75,000-plus army made up of both American and Filipino soldiers battled in futility against the Japanese onslaught that engulfed the Philippines shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor. From Dec. 8, 1941, to April 9, 1942, the American and Filipino soldiers fought fiercely and bravely, but ended up being trapped and forced to surrender. As the Japanese advanced, hundreds of Filipino soldiers began tossing their weapons and blowing up ammunition dumps as they retreated southward on the Bataan peninsula, trying to escape. In the meantime, the Japanese air and naval forces pounded the fortress island of Corregidor at the mouth of ManilaBay where Gen. Douglas MacArthur, commander of all Philippine forces, had retreated from Manila. The escape of MacArthur from Corregidor was nothing short of a miracle. The U.S. Navy whisked MacArthur and his family from Corregidor, weaving through the various islands, dodging Japanese warships and finally south to Australia. While much has been written about MacArthur’s valiant escape, less has been documented about what he left behind: an army in disarray, disillusioned, and demoralized. In the eyes of many soldiers who were there, MacArthur abandoned his command, even though he reportedly acted on the order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Despite MacArthur’s explanation that he “reluctantly” left the Philippines, the general quickly became known among the troops as “Dugout Doug.” As unfair as that moniker might have been, to those who survived the march of death to prison camps that was to come, had quite another opinion. MacArthur overestimated the ability of his command, and underestimated the Japanese. When defenders failed to turn back the Japanese on the eastern beaches of Luzon, MacArthur retreated his troops

across Manila Bay to Bataan, leaving most of their ammunition and food supplies on the beaches that had been overrun by the enemy.

One little-known fact: of the 75,000-man army, three-quarters were Filipinos, with the remainder American. Other than the highlyskilled Philippine Scouts, most of the troops, both U.S. and Filipino, were poorly trained and illequipped for meeting the battlehardened Japanese army. To give some idea of the disorganization, the main body of Filipino soldiers spoke the Bicolanian dialect, whereas most of the officers spoke only Tagalog; American soldiers spoke neither. Regardless of the disarray of the American and Filipino forces, a tremendous four-month battle was fought with Filipino and American troops inflicting heavy Japanese losses. Toward the end, lack of food became critical. Food rations were cut in half. Of the 250 horses and 48 pack mules, most ended up being what became known as “cavalry steak.”

By March 1942, the only U.S. war correspondent left in the Philippines summed the situation up thusly in a poem, which went back to the American public:

“We’re the battling bastards of Bataan, No mama, no papa, no Uncle Sam, No aunts, no uncles, no cousins, no nieces, No pills, no planes, no artillery pieces, And nobody gives a damn.”

On April 9, Lt. Gen. Jonathan Wainwright reluctantly surrendered his beleaguered troops to the Japanese. It was the end of the fighting, but the beginning of the torturous march to the POW camps. It became known as a “march of death.” As one general wrote years later about the Battle of Bataan … “In full truth, it was an unsavory mess.” Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond

San Marcos goes back to school

As the summer winds down, San Marcos students are headed back to school. With elementary, middle and high schools along with Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College back in session later this month, I-15 and SR-78 travelers can expect increased traffic delays during their daily commute. While the increase in traffic congestion is familiar to city residents, students and commuters alike, the City of San Marcos is pleased to report that continued relief is on the way. In the city’s ongoing efforts to

get motorists moving and improve traffic flow, several roadway improvement projects are lined up over the next five years. Planned projects include two new bridges along Bent Avenue and Via Vera Cruz and the widening of Discovery Street. Interchange improvements slated at Woodland Parkway and SR 78 will help accommodate the City’s anticipated growth near Cal State San Marcos and the University District. During the school year and periods of roadway construction, drive with caution and provide ample time to reach your destination safely and on time.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. 20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.

There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are animal organs. We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preach-

ers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and in which an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. Lastly - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick'?

Oceanside Public Library Presents Jessica Fichot

On Friday, August 11, the Oceanside Parks and Recreation Department will present the movie “Sing” at Marshall Street Park, located at 1400 Marshall Street. This free family movie begins at approximately 7:45pm and tells the story about a group of anthropomorphic animals that enter a singing competition, hosted by a koala hoping to save his theater. The film includes more than 60 songs from famous artists and also has an original song by Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande called "Faith," which was nominated for a

Golden Globe award. On Friday, August 25, the movie “Finding Dory” will show at the Junior Seau Pier Amphitheater starting at sunset.

This film is the sequel to the movie “Finding Nemo,” and tells the story of the amnesiac fish, Dory, who gets separated from her parents as a child and tries to find them as she grows up. Due to her short term memory loss disability, she forgets them. Eventually, she has a memory flashback and sets out on her journey to find them. Be sure to arrive early to this free movie for best seating. For information about upcoming Parks and Rec events, please call 760-435-5041.

Location, Location, Location

The above is the classic answer to the question “what are the three most important factors for a successful business.” It has long been a mantra for developers, realtors and property managers. Location certainly is a key factor for many businesses. Location related considerations like visibility, foot traffic, accessibility, parking, safety, etc. are all part of making a good or bad location for any business. You’ll never see a sidewalk café next to a sewage plant.

Another key factor for business success is that customers must know what you do and whether or not you are any good at it. In small town America where Nome and I grew up,

Additional concerts scheduled by HVCCA for the season are: October 8th, Firebird Balalaika Ensemble, who have built a reputation as a unique and dynamic group performing traditional Russian, Ukrainian, and Eastern European songs to well-known classics and original compositions. Then on January 28th, the Pacific Coast Horns Brass Quintet has something for everyone – from classical arrangements to jazz, from Ragtime and Big Band to Broadway. Originally the Disneyland Bellhops, they perform versions of the Great American songbook and goodnatured entertainment. March 25th brings the High Society Jazz Band with a fresh twist on the lively sounds of traditional jazz, and a variety of music styles and arrangements – Dixieland, New Orleans and Chicago-style, swing, Big Band, Latin, and even some Oldies rock n’ roll. And May 6th will be the Civic Youth Orchestra which has enriched the lives of young musicians from throughout Southern California since 1956. HVCCA presents the CYO every two years to support the musical arts in the community.

All concerts are on Sundays at 2pm in the Center Theater at California Center for the Arts, Escondido. Regular single concert tickets can be purchased online at www.artcenter.org or the CCAE box office at

word of mouth was the way folks made that determination. Advertising could tell people what you do and where you were, but your long term success depended upon what folks thought about the value of your products or services. People talked with their friends and neighbors. If a business consistently served its customers well, everyone knew it and the business thrived. A business that cared more about money than customers didn’t last long. Today, while the physical location of a business and “word of mouth” referrals are still important, urbanization and the Internet have brought new meaning to those concepts. Location now refers to how near the top of the first page your business is when your key words are “Googled.” “Word of mouth” has been replaced by search engine “star ratings” and anonymous comments. How important are these factors to a business? They can make or break a business, especially new businesses catering to a youthful demographic. The Internet is important to the growth of older established businesses too. More and more people use the Internet to find products and services. The old “yellow pages” listings were free but businesses would pay extra for bold print or a display ad in order to stand out. It is the same with Internet, the listing is free but where you appear in the listing depends on how much you’re willing to pay to get a high ranking. Paid advertisers get a priority first page listing. Next come non-advertisers, listed by popularity (number of clicks). There are two

mind cannot tell the difference between good and evil.

In a recent report on the internet, the plight of the citizens now suffering from Muslim dominance in England where, at the behest of the European Union, they allowed four million Muslims to immigrate to their shores in the guise of political correctness and are now paying the price because they did not want to be called bigots, as Diane would find very offensive. Sixty-six million Brits have been overwhelmed by the Muslims who have invaded and conquered the Brits by population, as they stood by and allowed it to happen (much like Mexico has conquered the USA). Thanks to the European Union, that is ultra politically correct, the Brits may never recover from what they have allowed to happen.

Muslims, as a result of their invasion have seated no less than eleven mayors in major British cities, have established more than 3,000 Mosques, 130 Sharia courts, have their own “do not enter enclaves” that British Police will not enter, and provide roving bands of enforcers to assure that their way is the only way. Perhaps Diane should move to Britain so that she can enjoy being close to the Muslims she seems to admire. /s/George Beitner Senior San Marcos, Ca.
