Cat


I had a class today from 7am to 3pm after working last night until 11pm. Jeez I’m exhausted.

Here’s a funny for ya, no offense to you Irish folk.

AN IRISH BLONDE IN A CASINO

An attractive blonde from Cork , Ireland arrived at the casino.
S he seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty-thousand Euros on a
single roll of the dice.

She said, ‘I hope you don’t mind, but I feel much luckier when
I’m completely nude’.

With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and
with an Irish brogue yelled, ‘Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!’

As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and
squealed…’YES! YES! I WON, I WON!’

She hugged each of the dealers and then picked up her winnings
and her clothes and quickly departed.

The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.

Finally, one of them asked, ‘What did she roll?’

The other answered,

‘I don’t know – I thought you were watching.’

MORAL OF THE STORY –

Not all Irish are drunks,
not all blondes are dumb,
but all men…are men.

ஜ~§Poem Of The Day§~ஜ

Cat

The fat cat on the mat
may seem to dream
of nice mice that suffice
for him, or cream;
but he free, maybe,
walks in thought
unbowed, proud, where loud
roared and fought
his kin, lean and slim,
or deep in den
in the East feasted on beasts
and tender men.
The giant lion with iron
claw in paw,
and huge ruthless tooth
in gory jaw;
the pard dark-starred,
fleet upon feet,
that oft soft from aloft
leaps upon his meat
where woods loom in gloom —
far now they be,
fierce and free,
and tamed is he;
but fat cat on the mat
kept as a pet
he does not forget.
