Another Memorial Day has passed. Need a bit of levity.

I don't know where it originated but ran across the following on ''. A dear friend of mine will tell me I am 'so going to hell' for reposting it. If I were a person of any public importance NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and NOW (National Organization for Women) would be calling for my public hanging. Can't help it. It's funny. Get over it.
