Joke of The Day

Two women were discussing the news of the day at their favorite cocktail bar-- the story of a politician who had an affair
with a young woman was one topic that came up. One asked the other
"what would you do if you ever caught your husband
with another woman?"
"Another woman with MY husband?" She thought it over.
"Let's see, I suppose I'd break her cane, shoot her guide dog, and call a cab to take her back to the mental institution she escaped from." 

Quote of The Day

 "There is only one game at the heart of America and that is baseball, and only one beverage to be found sloshing at the depths of our national soul and that is beer."
-Peter Richmond
