The Editor:  Is this about the kitchen cleaners like Comet and Ajax, LL ?

Soothsayer Cat:  No it’s about comets in the sky.  Comets have fascinated people since day one.

Halley’s Comet is the most studied.

Some of our loyal star gazers might remember Hale-Bopp  which passed close by in 1997.

Here is a band named Haley and Comet.

Comets were thought to be balls of fire.

Ask your bartender….

 Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night. So I went to a shrink and told him: “I’ve got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I’m scared. I think I’m going crazy.”

.

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year” said the shrink. “Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”

“How much do you charge?”

“Eighty dollars per visit,” replied the doctor.

“I’ll sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later the doctor met me on the street. “Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were having?” he asked.

“Well, eighty bucks a visit, three times a week for a year, is $12,480.00.”

A bartender cured me for $10.00. I was so happy to have saved all that money, so I went and bought me a new pickup truck.

“Is that so?” With a bit of an attitude he said, “And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”

“He told me to cut the legs off the bed. Ain’t nobody under there now.”

.

It’s always better to get a second opinion.

SPARE RIB?

Adam was hanging around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely.  So, God asked him, ‘What’s wrong with you?’   Adam said he didn’t have anyone to talk to.

 

God said that He would make Adam a companion And that companion would be called woman.  He said, ‘This pretty lady will gather food for you, she will cook for you, And when you discover clothing, she will wash it for you – She will always agree with every decision you make and she will not nag you, And will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you’ve had a disagreement.

 

She will praise you! She will bear your children. And never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them.  ‘She will NEVER have a headache and will freely give you love and Passion whenever you need it.’ Adam asked God, ‘What will a woman like this cost?’

 

God replied, ‘An arm and a leg.’  Then Adam asked, ‘What can I get for a rib?’   Of course the rest is history………
