I woke up in the wee hours, read on my phone, and tried ineffectively to stifle guffaws.

DH awoke and asked if we were having an earthquake. 😧

From Jerry Hunsinger

I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians.

If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men’s lives.

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.

The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers---well that goes without saying . . . Wrong message to our children.

So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing congress loves . . .

With all of this in mind, it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "The Beavers.”

When I die, I want to go just like Grandpa did in his sleep. Not like those screaming and yelling people in his car.

I just returned from a rooftop wedding. Two antennas got married. The wedding was awful but the reception was great

The new CEO at a company decided to fire all the slackers that he found to set examples.

Making a round, he saw a guy in the lobby leaning against the wall, hands in his pockets. He walked up and asked "What the hell are you doing?".

The dude answered "Just waiting to get paid".

The CEO asked "How much do you make a week?"

Dude answered "$300".

The CEO said "Here's $1200. Go away, and don't let me see your face again".

As the guy left, the CEO turned around and asked "Does anybody know what this guy's supposed to do for us? Who did he work for?"

An employee reluctantly volunteered "He just delivered a pizza to us for lunch".

I set up an account over the Web. It said a password needed 8 characters, so I entered "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves".

I went back to the supermarket to make a complaint. I said, ''This vinegar's got lumps in it''. The clerk said, "Those are pickled onions''.

I tried water polo but my horse drowned.

I went to the corner shop, and bought 4 corners.

I looked for some camouflage jackets in a sports goods store, but couldn't find any.
