"God is so great and merciful that he does not require that we name him precisely. God is even willing to be anonymous for a time. Remember how God led the Three Wise Men from the East to Christ? The Wise Men did not know the God of Israel or Jesus. They worshipped the stars. So God used a star to lure them."--The Twelve Steps for Christians

Thanks alan.

But, you can keep your commentary to youself about our funny, or lack thereof. Besides, I think three or four of these are DARN good.

Since it is now obvious that mine won't win (thanks for the second vote, though, whoever you are!), I must say that ""Mahtar said there'd be days like this." is frickin' hi-larious and should definitely win.

But you can still vote for "The crowd enjoyed Safdar's triple reverse gainer. The three Dirt-Diving judges, however, remained unimpressed." and make me happy with an illegal win.

I'm amused by taking the following completely out of their contexts:

Mahtar

Jharkhand

Safdar

I'm laughing just writing this. I'm not real up on Arabic nomenclature - how far off are we?


In case you were wondering, my name is spelled "Denes House," but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove."

Arabic???  Try Hindi.

Yep, sorry.

Nice try Chris and welcome.

Had I been on top of things, mine would have been:

"WOW! My feet really DO feel better. About this headache..."


"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."

I would have voted for that one.

I think I'm pretty much out of this one now, so as I don't think I can swing the vote unfairly by doing this I thought I'd offer a correction to mine (written after I'd seen "The Third Man")

It should be the guy on the far right (the 3rd guy on the right) who is thinking to himself

"That, was meant for me"

(I tried to find the Larson cartoon I was tipping my hat too, so that I could post it Here. But I couldn't)

Perhaps this is the only time (short of the parousia) that Darrel and I will be on the same side of any victory... smile.gif
