Random Thoughts for Tuesday

Choosing A Wife

A man wanted to get married, but he was having trouble choosing among three likely candidates. He decided to give each woman a present of $5,000 and watch to see what they would do with the money.

The first purchased a total make over. She went to a fancy beauty salon to get her hair done and new make up. She then went to the store and bought several new outfits and dresses. She told him she did this to be more a attractive for him because she loves him so much. The man was impressed.

The second went shopping to buy the man gifts. She bought him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presented these gifts, she tolds him that she spent all the money on him because she loves him so much. Again, the man was impressed.

The third invested the money in the stock market. She earned several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5,000 and reinvested the remainder in a joint account. She told him that she wanted to save for their future because she loves him so much. Obviously, the man was impressed.

The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he'd given her.

Then, he married the one with the biggest boobs.

Men are like that, you know. There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

That's a variation on a joke--how the lawyer hires a secretary.

Good either way.

Another random thought. As a former West Bend citizen where do you come down on their referendum?

Other Side said...

You know, I have not lived in West Bend since late 1978. I do still have a couple of friends who live in the city, but really have no ties anymore nor do I know anything about the referendum other than what I just finished reading in the JS Online archives.

I attended one of the schools that is being replaced, Silverbrook (back in 1968). Badger Middle School is just one block away from our former home. My parents' five kids were going to go to high school there when we moved to West Bend in 1968. Unfortunately, Dad knew nothing about the construction plans of the new high schools.

I guess my point is if no school construction has been done since 1969 and the schools being talked about are old and probably out-of-date (of which I have some knowledge), then I think the requested funds are a good thing.

Eventually, infrastructure needs to be updated, regardless of the industry. West Bend's citizens are smart people. They'll vote the correct way.

I would vote for the funds.
