Week’s BEST Funny Quotes

There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot. The only reason people get lost in thought is because it’s unfamiliar territory... Everyone needs to believe in something. I believe I’ll have another beer.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity. - Albert Einstein

Subject: Finances My friend told me that you gave away more than $5000 in free classifieds that generated more than $50,000 in easy money. We understand that if you use an economic multiplier applied to local communities that this will mean more than $652,000 in terms of new jobs, home and car purchases that can be bundled into securities that will leverage about $13.4 million. So, the question is can we invest in this? Thanks, Francis

Week’s BEST Funnifieds

Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19

Weekly Overview (Week starting on January 17) If you could be anywhere else on Monday and Tuesday, you would be, but you can’t. And since you’re here, you might as well face the music. The situation is not nearly as fraught as you might think, and you may actually have fun dealing with things -- in the sense that it’s a challenge. Wednesday and Thursday are not piece-of-cake days either, but it’s nothing you can’t handle. On Friday (or sometime this weekend), placing a phone call to someone you miss terribly is a great idea. Not your friend Chris, though, he’s such a jerk.

Hard-Wired Memories With winter now here, there is a stretch of road I travel where the sun, low in the sky but still very strong, glares on-and-off so sharply and erratically through trees empty of leaves that it reminds me of the strobe lights popular in the ‘70s. Unfortunately, that, in turn, reminds me of the night I discovered that under those strobes fed by black lights, one and only one of my 28 teeth — a crowned front tooth — would fluoresce a dreadful bluish white. That appalling discovery wouldn’t have been so bad had I made it early in the evening, when I could have smiled a little less. But no. I grinned my brains out all night long, one lone tooth glowing wildly like a witch’s fang. It still makes me shudder — and it also makes me wonder why memories like that are so hard-wired into my brain while all the really good ones are so much more fleeting. Memories like how great I looked in a miniskirt. Or so I thought. I was a little chunky. Uh oh…
