Life is like coffee

Do you know people that just seem to be happier in general? Do you say to yourself, "I want to be more like them"? Often, the happiest people in the world don't have the best of everything...they just make the best of everything!

Together we can spread words of Encouragement, Inspiration & Empowerment one video at a time... and wouldn't you agree our world could use a little more "Positivity" these days!

Thanks Ellen/Sam

Returned Mail

Can you believe it?

They sent my income tax return form back to me!

In response to question # 4, "Do you have any dependants?"
I replied -
2.1 million illegal immigrants,
1.1 million crack heads,
4.4 million unemployable people,
901 thousand people in over 85 prisons,
and 650 idiots in Parliament.

Apparently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

Who the hell did I miss?

A look at life.

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

...Then You Are Probably......................The Family Dog!

A pirate walked into a bar

The bartender said, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible."
"What do you mean?" said the pirate, "I feel fine."
"What about the wooden leg? You didn't have that before."
"Well," said the pirate, "We were in a battle, and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I'm fine now."
The bartender replied, "Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?"
The pirate explained, "We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. My hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook but I'm fine, really."
"What about that eye patch?"
"Oh," said the pirate, "One day we were at sea, and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up, and one of them shit in my eye."
"You're kidding," said the bartender. "You couldn't lose an eye just from bird shit."
"It was my first day with the hook."
Thanks Harry

Three Pigs as per Shakespeare

Think about this...Shakespeare (and his contemporaries?) had a working vocabulary of more than 54,000 words. The current working vocabulary of Americans is about 3,000 or much less in most cases for non-readers.
About 15,000 words will give you better than 90% comprehension or so in most literature according to Wikipedia.
Three Pigs as per Shakespeare - watch and listen to the end - therein lies the hook.
Thanks Kerry


A guy was on trial for murder and if convicted, would get the death sentence.
His brother found out that a Newfoundlander was on the jury and figured he
would be the one to bribe. He told the Newfie that he would be paid $10,000
if he could convince the rest of the jury to reduce the charge to manslaughter.

The jury was out an entire week and returned with a verdict of manslaughter.

After the trial, the brother went to the Newfie’s home, told him what a great
job he had done and paid him the $10,000.

The Newfie replied that it wasn't easy to convince the rest of the jury to change
the charge to manslaughter. They all wanted to let him go.
Thanks Ralph

Stop Bastardizing Canadian Politics Mr. Harper

The Truth

I returned to Ontario in 1987, during the Peterson era. Voter discontent led Ontarians to vote NDP in 1990. At the time the economy of the World was in the shitter.... in my humble opinion it was second only to the great depression.... what saved Canada was our social programs .... Steven Harper and his hate mongers would like us all to believe it was Bob Rae's fault......

Sorry folks but it was the fault of the Federal Parties around the World and NOT a Province of Ontario error..... no one Province in Canada can create a World collapse as was experienced during Rae's reign in Ontario.

Stephen Harper is a blatant liar.

Rae was defeated by the PC's who, under Harris and Flaherty, further drove the province into deficit..... they, in turn, were defeated by the Liberals and here we are with a cumulative deficit caused by the Liberals, Progressive Conservatives and the NDP.....

So who is at fault ..... all parties ..... it is no wonder that the Supreme Court of Ontario has declared that brothels..... in particular the Federal Parliament Buildings in Ottawa are a legal operation.

Isn't it interesting that the Ontario courts have elevated sex workers to a higher level than the Conservative Party......

Canadians have always had more admiration for sex workers than politicians ...... at least they put in an honest days work

2012 Reunion

Beth and Rod I only have Beth's work e-mail, Harry Cobb, I do not have your e-mail, hopefully Carolyn or Ken will let you know. If anyone can let me know Steve Kemper's and Nola (Chapman) and Peter Kendells e-mail that would be great. Marston could you post the tentative plans on the blog. Really hope that you and Lou can make it this year and appreciate you including the information on the blog, it reaches a lot of folks.

Snow is gone, time to start thinking of the reunion, Friday September 14th to Sunday September 16th. I am attaching a tentative list of those who have expressed an interest in attending. If you can think of anyone to forward this on to, please do so, it will help, and ask that they contact me so that I can include them in the updates. I could not find some e-mails and did not want to put the information on facebook.

I have also included some who have attended in previous years to see if they are interested.

The tentative plans are as follows: However if anyone wishes to suggest any other things they would like to do or see, I am open for your suggestions. I will be contacting the motels for accommodations in April. I am hoping that a new Quality Inn (located just 4 kms from us) , scheduled to open in June of this year can assist us but I will have to know some numbers before I can haggle a price, with a ballpark number.

On Friday, arrival day, we will all meet at the Coopers for a bar-b-que, salad, corn on the cob and light dessert, and of course a social time, dishes and utensils provided. As I said, we have plenty of room, even if it gets cool and damp. Just bring your lawn chairs and what you are drinking. Some have volunteered to bring salads or dessert and I will look after the corn and the meat (I hope to get the steak from a restaurant so that should keep our individual costs down, previously the cost was $10.00 per person. If anyone wishes something other than steak, let me know and we will accommodate you.

For Saturday night, a restaurant in Port Elgin (The Blind Badger) has suggested that they might consider closing their doors to the public from 5 to 7 on Saturday night for our dinner meal, They offered to set up a menu with three selections of either prime rib, pasta or chicken as the main course (veggies included) , with soup and salad, dessert, tea or coffee, and tip included and try to keep the costs to $17.00 per person. If this is acceptable, they will make up a menu and I will forward it to those attending so that we can preorder to speed things up and to make sure they have the food available. After dinner, there are a number of options, you can come back to our place for more social time and a bonfire, hay ride, games (bocca ball, hoseshoes, testicle toss, etc.) or you can enjoy any of our local hotels which usually have live music.

Traditionally on Saturday during the day, folks did their own thing, shop, golf (tee times can be arranged), sightseeing, rest, whatever you wish, I can even organize a canoe trip down the Saugeen River for those daring enough. We previously met for lunch and I was thinking there is a perfect spot on the beach at a place called Pioneer Park, plenmty of benches and tables and shelter. Before everyone looked after their own lunch, but we could order pizza, subs, what ever is easiest, again I am open for suggestions, just need some time to accommodae our orders. Trying to keep the costs to a minimum as there are some that have to travel some distance and I think the best part is making sure that we can all get the chance to visit.

On Sunday the plan is to meet for brunch and unfortunately say our good-byes. Larry and I are looking forward to seeing you all again. Again I would like to emphasize that if there is anything that you would like to do, let me know and I will try my best. I will be contacting the Chamber of Commerce/Tourism Bureau for Saugeen Shores to see what they have booked for September. I will keep you up-to-date on anything I find out and any suggestions that come forth, and will be sending out options and attractions that may be offered. In the meantime, please spread the word, to try and get as many as possible. I can be reached at

Heather (Hubbard) and Larry Cooper

Thanks Heather.... the Saturday menu sounds great..... do I get all three?

Chief Clarence Louie Osoyoos BC

Chief Clarence Louie Osoyoos BC speaking in Northern Alberta :

Speaking to a large aboriginal conference and some of the attendees, including a few who hold high office, have straggled in.

'I can't stand people who are late, he says into the microphone.
Indian Time doesn't cut it. '
Some giggle, but no one is quite sure how far he is
going to go. Just sit back and listen:
'My first rule for success is Show up on time.'
'My No. 2 rule for success is follow Rule No. 1.'
'If your life sucks, it's because you suck.'
'Quit your sniffling.'
'Join the real world. Go to school, or get a job.'
'Get off of welfare. Get off your butt.'
He pauses, seeming to gauge whether he dare,

then does.
'People often say to me, How you doin'?

Geez I'm working with Indians what do you think?'
Now they are openly laughing ... applauding.

Clarence Louie is everything that was advertised
and more.
'Our ancestors worked for a living, he says.

So should you.'

He is, fortunately, aboriginal himself. If someone

else stood up and said these things - the white
columnist standing there with his mouth open,
for example - you'd be seen as a racist. Instead, Chief Clarence Louie is seen, increasingly, as one of the most interesting and innovative native leaders in the country even though he avoids national politics.
He has come here to Fort McMurray because the
aboriginal community needs, desperately, to start talking about economic development and what all this multibillion-dollar oil madness might mean,for good and for bad.
Clarence Louie is chief and CEO of the Osoyoos Band in British Columbia's South Okanagan. He is 44 years old, though he looks like he would have been an infant when he began his remarkable 20-year-run as chief.
He took a band that had been declared bankrupt
and taken over by Indian Affairs and he has turned
it into an inspiration.
In 2000, the band set a goal of becoming self-sufficient

in five years. They're there.
The Osoyoos, 432 strong, own, among other things,
a vineyard, a winery, a golf course and a tourist resort,
and they are partners in the Baldy Mountain ski development.
They have more businesses per capita
than any other first nation in Canada.
There are not only enough jobs for everyone,

there are so many jobs being created that there
are now members of 13 other tribal communities
working for the Osoyoos. The little band contributes
$40-million a year to the area economy.
Last week the Government granted them a new Jail at Osoyoos.

Chief Louie is tough. He is as proud of the fact that

his band fires its own people as well as hires them.
He has his mottos posted throughout the Rez.
He believes there is no such thing as consensus,
that there will always be those who disagree.
And, he says, he is milquetoast compared to his
own mother when it comes to how today's lazy
aboriginal youth, almost exclusively male, should
be dealt with.
Rent a plane, she told him, and fly them all to Iraq.
Dump'em off and all the ones who make it back are
keepers. Right on, Mom!
The message he has brought here to the Chipewyan,

Dene and Cree who live around the oil sands is equally direct:
'Get involved, create jobs and meaningful jobs,
not just window dressing for the oil companies.'
'The biggest employer,' he says, 'shouldn't be the band office.'
He also says the time has come to get over it.

'No more whining about 100-year-old failed
experiments.' 'No foolishly looking to the Queen
to protect rights.'Louie says aboriginals here and along the Mackenzie Valley should not look at any sharing in development as rocking-chair money but as investment opportunity to create sustainable businesses.
He wants them to move beyond entry-level jobs to real jobs they earn all the way to the boardrooms. He wants to see business manners develop: showing up on time, working extra hours. The business lunch, he says, should be drive through, and then right back at it.
'You're going to lose your language and culture
faster in poverty than you will in economic development', he says to those who say he is ignoring tradition.
Tough talk, at times shocking talk given the audience,
but on this day in this community, they took it and,
judging by the response, they loved it.
Eighty per cent like what I have to say, Louie says,

twenty per cent don't. I always say to the 20 per cent, 'Get over it.' 'Chances are you're never going to see me again and I'm never going to see you again.' 'Get some counselling.'
The first step, he says, is all about leadership. He prides himself on being a stay-home chief who looks after the potholes in his own backyard and wastes no time running around fighting 100-year-old battles.
'The biggest challenge will be how you treat your own people.'
'Blaming government? That time is over.'

Five Rules to Remember in Life


1. Money cannot buy happiness but its more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

2. Forgive your enemy but remember the SOB's name.

3. Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember you when they're in trouble again.

4. Many people are alive only because its illegal to shoot them.

5. Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk.       

Thanks Richard

What a MK-48 torpedo can do...

What a MK-48 torpedo can do...
It's a US made (non nuclear) torpedo that is in use today by our submarines.
Very precise, very accurate and very powerful. This is the Australian
Submarine Navy doing a live torpedo practice shot on one of their
decommissioned ships. They used a MK-48 torpedo developed in the USA. It is
not a contact weapon. It is designed to go off directly underneath the ship
at about 50 feet under the keel. The effect is devastating as you can see
from the video. This lethal weapon can break the back of ships much larger
than the one shown in this video. They don't even have a chance of survival.

Video attached.

New Wiper Blades

I got a new set of wiper blades on my car (a Peugeot, made in France ).
I think they might be too big because they hang over the edges a little, but I don't care, they work great and I would have to say that they are the only blades I have ever had that I actually like to watch working. Call me crazy, but lately I have been driving around non-stop with them on.
I've even been pulled over and the cop asked to go for a ride so he could watch them work.
They were outrageously expensive (being French), but safety is my main concern and like I said, they work great. Let me know if you would like a pair for your car…...

Monday's Vehicle - 1967 corvette stingray 427 390

Conflict of interest - Harper politics at it's ugliest

Paradis, then Public Works minister, directed his officials to set up special meetings with defeated Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer to discuss a private project.

During his visit to Thailand on Friday, Harper said he had reviewed the findings of Dawson’s report and found no wrongdoing.

"I think two things are clear. First of all, the minister didn’t act with any ill intention of any kind, nor has any substantial harm of any kind occur," said Harper.

"it's Ok to break the rules as long as you throw a fellow Minister under the bus"

To the contrary Mr. Harper, this is politics at its ugliest. It is abundantly clear that a minister in your own party was used as a sacrificial lamb to deflect attention from the wrong doing of Minister Paradis.

While I am not a fan of Helena Guergis and her husband I must say this revelation by the ethics commissioner certainly sheds new light on the underhanded actions of yourself and the Conservative Party to protect Minister Paradis.

Well Mr. Harper I think it is important for the Canadian voters to know why YOU felt it was necessary to humiliate Helena Guergis and destroy her career for something Christian Paradis was complicit in and why you now feel no harm was caused????

"Shame on you"

Bob Rae wants to be Prime Minister

Is this type of political sniping what Canadians are all about? It doesn't work for me. I find all this negativity depressing. We expect more civility and substance from our Parliamentarians.

I understand that the ads are directed at Canadians of a lesser intelligence, those with a hate everything attitude however, in the long run the majority of people will get fed up with this negativity.

My experience here in Ontario tells me that the people of this Province don't need a reminder of the "Rae Days". What this ad does tell everyone is that the Harper government fears Rae and it makes one wonder how the Harperites of Canada can harbour so much hatred for everyone around them.

In sales we are taught not to talk about our competition in a negative manner. The reasoning is that you are subliminally telling people that you fear the competition and peak the interest of the client.

It begs the question; "Will all this negativity ultimately chase the curious toward the opposition"?

Our readers

Back in our day

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days."

The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.

Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property, (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribbling's. Then we were able to personalize our books. But too bad we didn't do the green thing back then.

We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.

Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that young lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana . In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the green thing back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then?

Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from smart ass young people

We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.
Thanks Kerry

A young lad from Sydney , Nova Scotia goes off to University,
but halfway through the semester he foolishly has squandered all of
his money.

He calls home. 'Dad,' he says, 'you won't believe what modern education is developing.
They actually have a program here in Antigonish that could teach our dog "Jiggy" how to talk.'

'That's amazing!' his Dad says 'How do I get Jiggy in that program?'

'Just send him in here with $1200,' the young lad says, 'I'll get him in the course.'

So his father sends the dog "Jiggy"and $1200.

About two-thirds through the semester, the money again runs out.
The young lad calls home.
'So how's Jiggy doing, son?' his father wants to know.

'Awesome! Dad, he's talking up a storm.
But you just won't believe this.
They've had such good results with talking, they've begun to teach the animals how to read..'

'Read?!' exclaims his father.
'No kidding! How do we get our Jiggy in that program?'

'Just send $2300. I'll get him in the class for sure.'

The money promptly arrives.
But our hero has a problem.
At the end of the year, his father will find out the dog can neither talk nor read.
So he shoots the dog.
When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited.

'Where's my Jiggy? I just can't wait to talk with him, and see him read something!'

'Dad,' the young lad says, 'I have some grim news.
Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Jiggy was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Cape Breton Post.
Then he suddenly turned to me and asked,
'So, is your daddy still messing around with that little redhead working in the bakery at the grocery store?''

The father groans and whispers, 'I hope you shot that son of a bitch before he talks to your Mother!'
'I sure did, Dad!'
'That's my boy!'
The kid went on to be a successful lawyer...

Wild Turkey and Coke On A Monday Morning

Here is the story of the pictures:

I had to go to Harrison this morning and saw this Coke truck sitting on the
side of the road. When I got close to it I could see what was wrong and
turned around to go make sure the driver was OK; he was fine. I told him he
should get a medal for keeping the truck in the road and not having a major
accident. You'll see why in one of the pictures.

I guess he wanted a little Wild Turkey with his Coke this morning.

4 Most Epic Baby Animal Sneezes

When we humans sneeze all over ourselves, we are viewed as rude, disgusting germ factories. Observers stare at the sneezer with disdain while others run from the room to save themselves from whatever contagion they believe has been set alight.
However, when animals, particularly baby animals, sneeze all over themselves and others, it's cause celebre - a viral video goldmine. To prove our point, herewith are our favorite sneezing baby animal videos of all time.

Dear God

What the hell am I doing????

I actually sat and watched the NDP convention..... WHY???? ... I don't even like the party .....


I have to give the NDP credit for doing an excellent job of promoting the party..... But, is it enough? ..... Not for me, none of the candidates have won me over. I still see inner turmoil between those who want to bring the party to the centre and those of the old guard who want the party to maintain its socialist values.

From a confrontational point of view Mulcair will challenge the Harper government but is he charismatic enough to win over the Canadian voters .... I don't believe so..... You can bet that the Conservatives already have attack ads ready to run and will flood the airwaves. Can Mulcair stand the test? Only time will tell ..... you can be sure however, that he will move the party to the centre.

My biggest disappointment with the candidates who failed is...... when asked by the media "who will you be supporting" ...... not one told the reporters to "F#@% OFF"


Hi God, it's me....things are getting bad here, gas prices are too high, no
Jobs, food and heating cost too high. I know some have taken you out of our schools, government & even Christmas. But God I'm asking you to come back and re-bless America , We really need you. Thanks God, I love you!

God says when 2 or more are gathered in My Name, there I will be also!!!

[Let's see how far this goes.
If led, please pass this on.]

Please God..please Bless America again!

Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets all travelling at maximum velocity.
The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.
US engineers in the States heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the Windshields of their new high speed trains.
Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the US engineers.
When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow..
The horrified engineers sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.

You're going to love this......

Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:

"Defrost the chicken."

Air Canada

Canada's national airline originated from the Canadian federal government's 1936 creation of Trans-Canada Airlines (TCA), which began operating its first transcontinental flight routes in 1938. In 1965, TCA was renamed Air Canada following government approval. Following the 1980s deregulation of the Canadian airline market, the airline was privatized in 1988. In 2001, Air Canada acquired its largest rival, Canadian Airlines. In 2003, the airline filed for bankruptcy protection and, the following year, emerged and reorganized under the holding company ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. In 2006, 34 million people flew with Air Canada as the airline celebrated its 70th anniversary.

It's a penny stock for cripes sake

It's time to stop funding Air Canada

Enough is enough! They are no longer the taxpayers responsibility and management should sit down, review all routes and determine which ones are profitable and maintain them, while letting others, more capable, operate the routes you are a failure at.

The only reason they are an essential service is because the Federal Government refuses to allow competive airlines access to their major routes.

I wonder what would be wrong with Air Canada selling off or licensing others to take over certain exclusive routes???

Please let the cards fall where they may.

Your Duck is Dead--
A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet..

"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150."

If you're smiling, you must pass it on, give someone else a smile too!

Short Joke

'The Urinal Is Too High'
A group of 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders, accompanied by two female teachers, went on a field trip to the local racetrack (Churchill Downs) to learn about thoroughbred horses.
When it was time to take the children to the bathroom, it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other.
The teacher assigned to the boys was waiting outside the men's room when one of the boys came out and told her that none of them could reach the urinal.
Having no choice, she went inside, helped the boys with their pants, and began hoisting the little boy's up one by one. As she lifted one, she couldn't help but notice that he was unusually well endowed. Trying not to show that she was staring, the teacher said, "You must be in the 4th grade."
"No ma'am, " he replied. "I'm the jockey riding Silver Arrow in the seventh."
