Happy New Year Chuckles.

Happy New Year To all at FOTM.   😀


A New Year Prayer For the Elderly

God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones that I do,
And the eyesight to tell the difference.

New Year’s Day Prayer for One and All

Dear Lord

So far this year I’ve done well.

I haven’t gossiped, I haven’t lost my temper, I haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent. I’m very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, Lord, I’m going to get out of bed, and from then on I’m probably going to need a lot more help.


A New Year’s Wish

On New Year’s Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living.

Well, it was kind of embarrassing. As the clock struck – the bartender was almost crushed to death

Lecture Tour with A Difference

On New Year’s Eve, Daniel was in no shape to drive, so he sensibly left his van in the car park and walked home. As he was wobbling along, he was stopped by a policeman. ‘What are you doing out here at four o’clock in the morning?’ asked the police officer.

‘I’m on my way to a lecture,’ answered Roger.

‘And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year’s Eve?’ enquired the constable sarcastically.

‘My wife,’ slurred Daniel grimly.

Happy New Year




Idaho Jumps on Union-Busting Bandwagon; Teachers Help Kids Cut Class

What’s the biggest lesson being taught in public schools right now? Blowing off class is just fine as long as you do it to help the union’s agenda.

Teenagers in Idaho put this to the test yesterday with infuriating results. As the state capital debates a sweeping reform bill to curb union power, students saw it as a chance to make their liberal puppet masters teachers proud.

First, it began inside the classroom with teachers using instruction time (paid by tax dollars) to indoctrinate their students on the horrors of union-busting:

“There’s been a handful of my teachers that have talked about it,” Nate Fisher said. “We’ve had classroom discussions about it, so I think that there is some understanding about the bill.”

No word on whether there have been classroom discussions about tea party concerns.

These lectures – er, discussions – prompted kids to feel justified in acting on behalf of their teachers. They organized a “walk out” Monday. Observe tax dollars hard at work in Idaho:

At 8:30 a.m. they walked out of class and met in the commons area where they discussed the bills, listened to speeches, signed petitions and wrote letters. Many of the students then drove around town honking their car horns, and later walked the streets shouting, “We’re tired of talking, now we’re walking.”

American High School Vice Principal Travis Hansen said he let students participate in the event as long as they signed out at the office before they left.

When local reporters asked if it was such a good idea for these kids to miss class, other principals made more excuses for them:

Principal David Ross said there is no way to stop students from leaving, and that most have only missed one class.

“They’re missing a class, an elective class that they don’t have a final in, and they’re just going out by period,” Ross said.

Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t remember my school having such a lackadaisical attitude about students disappearing in the middle of the day. I guess I just had the wrong principal.

Exit question: after witnessing just how important attendance really is to these principals, will parents still feel motivated to make them attend every day?
