All the People

“When all the people in the world love one another, then the strong will not overpower the weak, the many will not oppress the few, the wealthy will not mock the poor, the honoured will not disdain the humble, and the cunning will not deceive the simple.” — Mo Tzu, 400 BC.

Little Old Lunch Quiz

Her: “Are you still 88?”

Him: “What?”

Her: “ARE YOU STILL 88?”

Him: “I already ate.”

Her: (pause) “Yep, still 88… and still deaf.”

Him: “Why does a foot doctor want to know if I ate lunch?”

Her: “Oh, go back to sleep.”
