A friend recently sent me this joke, and I think you may enjoy it:
One sunny day in 2009 an old man approached the White House. He approached the marine standing guard and said, ‘I’d like be admitted and meet with President Bush.’
The marine looked at the man and said, ‘Sir, Mr Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.’
The old man said, ‘Okay,’ and walked away.
The following day the same old fellow approached the White House and said to the same marine, ‘I’d like to be admitted and meet with President Bush.’
The marine reiterated, ‘Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here.’
The man thanked him and left.
The third day the old man approached the same marine and said, ‘I’d like to be admitted and meet with President Bush.’
The marine looked at the man and said, ‘Sir, this is the third day in a row that you’ve asked to speak to Mr Bush. I’ve told you every time that Mr Bush is no longer the president and that he no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?’
The old man looked the marine in the eye and replied, ‘Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it!’
The marine snapped to attention, saluted the old man, and said, ‘See you tomorrow, sir!’
On another note: I just saw your cover art on the November issue of “Art Calendar.” I love everything you do, but particular favorites from the illustrations on that cover are “Intelligent Design” and “Puppetmaster.” I’d love to put them on my own blog, but since you expressly forbid reproductions, I’ll just direct my readers over to your site.
