Monday Fun Stories
A little under the weather today (no, were not hung over). We seem to have caught the nagging little cold that's making the rounds before flu season gets into full swing (hopefully, not avian flu).
- Are Scandals Creating a Lawyer Shortage? We doubt it. Why, just this morning, we had to chase half a dozen off the front lawn and they've started nesting in the eaves again. Lawyers are like cockroaches - in fact, they are exactly like cockroaches. Six legs, living in garbage, and impervious to a nuclear holocaust. Actually, the article seems to be about a dearth of lawyers experienced in "Corruption Law," but we ask, "What better place to practice than Chicago? Practice makes perfect. In 5 years, we shall be the envy of all other corrupt cities without experienced attorneys."
- Gun control fails in Brazil. In a landslide, the citizens of a nation with a higher rate of gun homicides than the US (despite having 100 million less people) 65% of the people said they trusted themselves to keep a gun for defense rather than the notoriously corrupt police and government. Pretty soon, the western hemisphere (with the exception of Chicago) will be the best armed hemisphere in the world.
- This would definitely encourage faster play on golf courses. Or at least the unarmed would allow the armed to play through more often. But carrying a .45 around on the belt would really screw up our backswing (it doesn't do any good if it's in the bag), the ankle .38 would mess with our balance and don't even get us started on the shoulder holstered 9mm. Maybe if we just stuck a long gun in the bag disguised as an umbrella?
