The newsletter was supposed to be mailed out by the president of the Procrastination Society, so... it probably never made it to the post office.

I was going to the insecurity club, but now I'm not so sure. - You see, I have this inferiority complex, and it's not even a good one.

I was planning to go to an open air meeting of the National Psychic Society today, but it was cancelled this morning due to bad weather that was unexpected.

The Sarcasm Society...

Like we need any member..especially you.


Like in the immortal words of Groucho Marks (paraphrased)."..why would I want to join any club that would allow me to be a member?"


Seniors Club

We forgot to mail out our newsletter but it makes little difference since we can't remember what we wanted to say anyway.

Why did I come into this room anyway?

These and all the others are all GREAT activities for retirees. I wonder if I should join one? I'll decide after I nap for a while....
