The Cajun Taxi Driver
Think about this after you read it...not ONE THING politically incorrect in what the Cajun Taxi driver says! He just speaks the truth!
An Arab Muslim enters a taxi cab in Houma, Louisiana...
Once he is seated, he asks the Cajun taxi driver to turn off the radio, because he must not hear music as decreed by his religion. And, in the time of the Prophet there was no music, especially Western music, which is music of the infidels. And, there was CERTAINLY no radio.
So the taxi driver politely switches off the radio, pulls over to the curb, gets out and opens the back door. The Arab asks him, “What are you DOING, man?!”
The Cajun answers, “In da time of da Prophet dere weren’t no taxis. So you get ya ass out and wait fa a camel!”
Gotta LOVE those Cajuns!
LOL! Indeed. Ya gotta love ‘em!
Politically correct? Not! But it IS funny.
Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome, Italy. One has a Cross in front of him; the other one is holding the Star of David. Many people go by, look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the Cross.
The Pope comes by. He stops to watch the throngs of people
giving money to the beggar who holds the Cross while none give to the beggar holding the Star of David.
Finally, the Pope approaches the beggar with the Star of David and say’s “My poor fellow, don’t you understand? This is a Catholic country; this city is the Seat of Catholicism. People aren’t going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you’re sitting beside a beggar who is holding a Cross. In fact, they would probably give more money to him just out of spite.”
The beggar with the Star of David listened to the Pope, smiled, and turned to the beggar with the Cross and said, “Moshi, look who’s trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing!”
I keep telling my wife, "De Old House Witch", dat :)
As long as she is still listening... You’re golden. [smiles]
ROFL! That’s a new one on me. [giggles]
Just got that in an email earlier.
Hmmm, I would guess 1791 as the year, but I have no clue about the month and day.....
After binging it, it looks like I am off on the year too. However, it would depend on the definition of ratification. The final state to ratify it was Rhode Island on May 29, 1790.
Then I think the people had to approve the Ammendments in the Bill of Rights, which could very well have been in 1791....
I knew the year was 1789, but I was wrong about the month and day. September 17 (my son’s birthday) in 1787 was when it was adopted by the Convention. It did not go into effect until March 4, 1789.
