Quote of the Day “When ignorance gets started it knows no bounds.” –Will Rogers
As closely as I can recount it, here is a lunch time conversation I was involved in this week. Enjoy.
Person1–What was that sound?–My God I thought the building was coming down. I was fixin to run.
Person2–I think it was a car in the parking garage next door.
P1–Liked to a scared me to death. You know, with all these disasters and everything. My Sunday School class was just talking about all these disasters and how we’re going to elect Osama Bin Laden and I’m gettin myself ready. Don’t you believe these disasters have the hand of God in them? I do, the end times are goin to be here soon.
Person 3–I know.
P1–Osama Bin Laden scares the Hell outta me. You know he don’t put his hand on his heart and salute the flag.
P1–You can’t tell me he ain’t gonna try to let them Muslims take over. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ain’t got horns stickin outta his head. (TB note–I think the horns part was only half serious)
P3–I’m afraid of that too.
P1–What do you think (addressing P2)
P2–Well, I think we have two real choices for President this time. I think Obama is a good, principled man, but I don’t agree with them. I think McCain is a real honorable man so I’m gonna vote for him.
TB–<Raises eyebrows, takes a bite of burger>
P1–Well, I think Osama bin Laden’s gonna bring this country down.
P3–I can’t stand them boom boxes them people are always blaring in my neighborhood.
P1–You ain’t sayin much. What do you think? (to TB)
TB–I’m votin for Obama. <returns to hamburger>
