Quote o’ the Day

Industrialist Cornelius Vanderbilt believed that spiritualists could contact the dead. One day, he decided to seek financial advice from his deceased friend Jim Fiske and asked a renowned spiritualist to organize a séance so he could talk to him. But during the proceedings, the spirit of Vanderbilt’s dead wife, Sophia, “contacted” her husband first.

It’s noon, I’m still in my jammies, and I’m on cup #2 of my triple espresso. That should kick my ass right into the shower, don’t you think? Mmmm, good cracker. I drink it Egyptian style, strong and thick with that nasty sweetened condensed milk in it. Heaven on a stick. Actually, I’ve just noticed my hair is beginning to stand on end.

So, Dick Cheney is briefing George Bush in the Oval Office.

“Oh and finally, sir, five Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq today.”
