For those of us who appreciate fine art, here’s a rare print of Norman Rockwell’s famous “Cat Prevents House Fire”.
A delightful angelic little boy was waiting for his mother outside the ladies room of the gas station.
As he stood there, he was approached by a man who asked, “Sonny, can you tell me where the Post Office is?”
The little boy replied, “Sure! Just go straight down this street two blocks and turn to your right. It’s on the left.”
The man thanked the boy kindly, complimented him on how bright he was and said, “I’m the new pastor in town. If you and your mommy come to church on Sunday, I’ll show you how to get to Heaven.”
The little boy replied with a chuckle; “You’re shitting me, right?
You can’t even find the Post Office.”
Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.
She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.
Ms Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’
The woman looked Ms Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, “Land mines.”
Moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go) :
BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE’S A SMART WOMAN.
Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, said there were two options for me :
Either I get corrupted and I put my family in the Forbes list of the richest people in the world and leave my people with nothing.
I serve my country, my people and let my country be in the list of the best ten economies in the world.
I chose the second option.
African politicians said, “there were two options for us also, but the second option was already taken by the Singapore Prime Minister”.
