THE SPHINX—-WHAT A WONDER

Brace Yourselves: Democrats Could Totally Self-Destruct If Trump Wins A Nobel Peace Prize (So, Grab Some Popcorn) – Matt Vespa

The Editor:   What is a wonder, LL ?

Peace Cat:  Wouldn’t it be a wonder if Trump brought peace to Korea.   Here are the Presidents who couldn’t or wouldn’t–Truman,  Eisenhower,  Kennedy,  Johnson,  Nixon,  Ford,  Carter,  Reagan,  Bush 41,  Clinton,  Bush 43,  and Obama.  Even more amazing, if this happens, Trump will have done it after NOKO developed nuclear weapons.    These are one-fourth of all US Presidents.

Kim might need a new personal plane to get to Switzerland, where he was educated.

Trump should give him one of these and a flight crew to show his good faith/intentions.

Kim Says He’ll Give Up Weapons if U.S. Promises Not to Invade – The New York Times

I can hear the Democrats & Progressives now, if this works out.   They will give credit to Dennis Rodman, the basketball player.  In the meantime let’s hope they can’t sabotage the talks.    Simply amazing.

 

THE SPHINX—-ANIMALS, AUTISM, & THINGS

The Editor:  What is the story on animals, LL ?

Mutual of Omaha Cat:   Here are some animals that have survived so far, mostly they avoid people.

Free as the Wind Blows Cat:  I would, some look like a good place to live.

Here is one on the Salton Sea.

THE SPHINX—FOOD DELIVERY & HAND GRENADES

_______________________________________________________________________

Here is a novel idea.  Pay American workers wages they can live on, instead of hiring illegals that you can cheat.  Ole Warren, he and Bezos should be called Massa.

The Editor:  What is up with food, LL ?

Baked Mouse Cat:  Cooked food delivery is the new deal.  The customers must have a few extra bucks.

This is a bizarre story.  A sailor stole twenty ( 20 ) hand grenades and left most by the roadside for women in basic training to practice with.

Even blondes are smarter than lawyers

Image result for pictures of dumb blondes

A lawyer and a blonde are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains” I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5, and vice-versa.” Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep.

The lawyer, now somewhat agitated, says, “Okay, if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500,” figuring that since she is a blonde that he will easily win the match. This catches the blonde’s attention and, figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?” The blonde doesn’t say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer. Now, it’s the blonde’s turn.

She asks the lawyer: “What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?” The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Air phone with his modem and searches the Net and the Library of Congress.

Frustrated, he sends E-mails to all his coworkers and friends he knows. After over an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500. The blonde politely takes the $500 and turns away to get back to sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, “Well, so what IS the answer!?” Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep!
