This is the Gentlemans site.
that was quite upset about some comments she/he/it had left at his site.
Having my snes of humor I had to see what the fuss was about. What I found was
"You're probably here cos you saw one of my comments. If it was on your site and didn't include the F word, consider your blog a success. If you don't have a trollmeister comment on your site yet, I probably haven't visited. "

A listener called the disc jockey on the air at our radio station to
about the upcoming lunar eclipse. "The eclipse can be seen at 1:30 in

Our national parks have millions of visitors a year, so
you can imagine that rangers get some rather bizarre
inquiries and comments. Here's a sampling:
"Where do you keep the animals at night?"
"Trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building
trails that go uphill."

Is there a way I can get reimbursed?"

say, 'Buk Buk BUK.' The librarian decides that the chickens want three
books, and promptly gives them some. Without further ado, the chickens
Around midday, the two chickens are back and looking quite annoyed. One
leans over to the librarian and says,' Buk Buk BuKKOOK!' The librarian
decides that the chickens want another three books and promptly gives
them some more. The chickens leave as before.
About an hour later the two birds march in, approach the librarian,

The librarian is now starting to get worried about where all her stock
is going. She decides to give them more books but also to follow them
and find out what's happening.
She followed them out of the library, out of town, and into to a park.

She saw the two chickens throwing the books at a frog in a pond, to
which the frog was kept repeating, "Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit..."

The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our
new building program.
The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets.
A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just
before a long holiday weekend.
The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of
him in front of the service station. Finally, the attendant motioned
him toward a vacant pump.
"Reverend," said the young man, sorry about the delay.
It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready
for a long trip.
The minister chuckled, "I know what you mean. It's the same
in my business."
