Sunday Funnies

Just a quick word to you conspiracy theorists, Mayan calendar followers, or simply superstitious saps. Did you notice the date today? It's the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10th year. Yeah. How about that. But I'll bet what you didn't know is that 10-10-10 is the Canadian metric version of the number of the beast. Uh-huh. Now would I lie to you guys?




Hey, wait! Look at this...


Everyday Goddess gave me her Post of the Week Award. Cool, huh? It's the second one she's given me inside of a month. And what makes this one so special is it comes on the first anniversary of her giving out these weekly awards. She liked my That's Nuts post last week. Thanks EG. And congratulations on your milestone.

A friend less mathematically challenged than yours truly posted on Facebook today that 10.10.10 is 42 in binary. Another friend pointed out that this is the meaning of life (at least according to Douglas Adams, but who am I to disagree). NOW we're talking conspiracies!

I would like to add, though, that if today is the meaning of life, I am slightly disappointed.

Cruella: I'm sticking to the metric version of the number of the beast. It's funnier than 42 in binary.

I just looked at my clock and it was 10/10/10 10:10:26. Twenty-stinkin'-six. Dammit. Now I have to wait another thousand years and my memory is likely to be no better then.

Congrats on the Post of the Week Award! But you really shouldn't try to explain the metric system to Americans, they might get hurt trying to figure it out.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
