This came from some Canadian friends, enjoy!

A LITTLE BIT OF CANADIAN PC & TOLERANCE


Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario,
says: "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against
another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal
of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious
beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote
tolerance."

"That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to
the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We
could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy,"
and the other, a topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."
"Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and
adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called "Iraq of
Ribs."

"Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria
Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the
goods, and on the other side a liquor store called " Morehammered.."

"All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they
demand of us." Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your
part by passing this on. - And if you are not laughing or smiling at
this point... it is either past your bedtime, or its midnight at the
oasis and time to put your camel to bed.

Default this day in history...

Quote:
In Boston Harbor, a group of Massachusetts colonists disguised as Mohawk Indians board three British tea ships and dump 342 chests of tea into the harbor.

The midnight raid, popularly known as the “Boston Tea Party,” was in protest of the British Parliament’s Tea Act of 1773, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company by greatly lowering its tea tax and granting it a virtual monopoly on the American tea trade. The low tax allowed the East India Company to undercut even tea smuggled into America by Dutch traders, and many colonists viewed the act as another example of taxation tyranny.

When three tea ships, the Dartmouth, the Eleanor, and the Beaver, arrived in Boston Harbor, the colonists demanded that the tea be returned to England. After Massachusetts Governor Thomas Hutchinson refused, Patriot leader Samuel Adams organized the “tea party” with about 60 members of the Sons of Liberty, his underground resistance group. The British tea dumped in Boston Harbor on the night of December 16 was valued at some $18,000.

Parliament, outraged by the blatant destruction of British property, enacted the Coercive Acts, also known as the Intolerable Acts, in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British.

Simple home remedies

1. Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold the vegetables while you Chop.
2. Avoid arguments with the females about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.
3. For high blood pressure sufferers ~ simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure on your veins. Remember to use a timer.
4. A mouse trap placed on top of your alarm clock will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
5. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. Then you'll be afraid to cough.
6. You need only two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
7. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.


Some additional advice: Never, under any circumstances, take a laxative and sleeping pills on the same night

Unless you first get creative with the duct tape.
