Did you hear that NASA recently put a bunch of Holsteins into low earth orbit?

They called it the herd shot ’round the world.

Some friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds.
Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him.
So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to “persuade” them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he’d be back if they didn’t close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that: Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

  2. There once was a troll who live under a bridge at the foot of a mountains of Tridville. Each morning, the Trids of Tridville would gather fruit from the bushes that grew around the rocks at the top of the mountain. AND each morning the troll would climb the mountain, find the Trids and boot each and everyone of them down the mountain.

    The constant rolling down the mountain and then climbing up the mountain again was wearing the Trids down, but as the troll was so huge they could not overcome him and were at their wits end.

    Now, it is a commonly known fact that most residents of Tridville are Episcopalian, but Trolls however, are Jewish. The Residents of Tridville decided to contact the local Rabbi and ask if he would plead with the Troll to stop!!! He agreed.

    That evening, the Rabbi made a call on the troll. He asked him why he continually kicked the residents of Tridville down the mountain. The troll said, “Silly Rabbi, don’t you know that Kicks or for Trids??”

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
