Fear the truth from old people…….

Lawyers should never ask a Georgia grandma a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer. In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand.

He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, ‘Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.’

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?’ She again replied, ‘Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.’ The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, ‘If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair.’

Here is that Little Johnny again…..

A teacher asked her class how many of them were Bernie Sanders fans.

Not really knowing what a Bernie Sanders fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different…again.

Little Johnny said, ‘Because I’m not a Bernie Sanders fan.’

The teacher asked, ‘Why aren’t you a Bernie Sanders fan?’

Johnny said, ‘Because I’m a Conservative.”

The teacher asked him why he’s a Conservative.

Little Johnny answered, ‘Well, my Mom’s a Conservative and my Dad’s a Conservative, so I’m a Conservative.’

Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, ‘If your Mom was a moron, and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?’

Little Johnny replied, ‘A liberal, and a Bernie Sanders fan.’

The Editor:  Will everything expire, LL ?

Psychic Cat:  For sure, everything.  Even the cosmos or universe.  After a zillion years the cosmos will stop expanding and start to go in reverse, headed for the BIG CRUNCH.  This might give our loyal readers some comfort in the meantime.

I guess the best we can do is try to stay alive.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Atlas, Daphnis, and Pan

Explanation: Atlas, Daphnis, and Pan are small, inner, ring moons of Saturn. They are shown at the same scale in this montage of images by the Cassini spacecraft that made its grand final orbit of the ringed planet in September 2017. In fact, Daphnis was discovered in Cassini images from 2005. Atlas and Pan were first sighted in images from the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft. Flying saucer-shaped Atlas orbits near the outer edge of Saturn’s bright A Ring while Daphnis orbits inside the A Ring’s narrow Keeler Gap and Pan within the A Ring’s larger Encke Gap. The curious equatorial ridges of the small ring moons could be built up by the accumulation of ring material over time. Even diminutive Daphnis makes waves in the ring material as it glides along the edge of the Keeler Gap.
