Thank you for taking this thread in a new direction.
Oh, I dunno.........I thought it was kinda funny when the guys were getting all squirmy about that picture of Thong Men.
The thought of CONC in a thong is enough to make any guy squeamish!
One day while he was at the track playing the ponies and all but losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race.
Lo and behold, that horse - a very long shot - won the race..
Before the next race, as the horses began lining up, Mitch watched with Interest the old priest step onto the track. Sure enough, as the 5th race horses came to the starting gate the priest made a blessing on the forehead of one of the horses.
Mitch made a beeline for a betting window and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed won the race.
Mitch collected his winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest would bless for the 6th race. The priest again blessed a horse.
Mitch bet big on it, and it won. Mitch was elated. As the races continued the priest kept blessing long shot horses, and each one ended up coming in first.
By and by, Mitch was pulling in some serious money. By the last race, he knew his wildest dreams were going to come true. He made a quick dash to the ATM, withdrew all his savings, and awaited the priest's blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on.
True to his pattern, the priest stepped onto the track for the last race and blessed the forehead of an old nag that was the longest shot of the day. Mitch also observed the priest blessing the eyes, ears, and hooves of the old nag.
Mitch knew he had a winner and bet every cent he owned on the old nag.
He then watched dumbfounded as the old nag come in dead last. Mitch, in a state of shock, made his way down to the track area where the priest was.
Confronting the old priest he demanded, 'Father! What happened?
All day long you blessed horses and they all won. Then in the last race, the horse you blessed lost by a Kentucky mile. Now, thanks to you I've lost every cent of my savings - all of it!'.
The priest nodded wisely and with sympathy. 'Son,' he said, 'that's the problem with you Protestants, you can't tell the difference between a simple blessing and last rites.'
Wasabe all. Have a good evening and a good week.
Oh my. I was just going to talk about the Oscars and I don't think they've ended in CA...
Caught myself just in time. :icon_mrgreen:
Well I can't understand all the hoopla surrounding "Slumdog Millionaire" but I haven't seen the movie either.
I'm so happy for Kate Winslet. Penn's a good actor and prolly deserved the award... Wasn't my pick this time... Don't really like the guy... but did like the movie... No surprises that Ledger won.
Alina's favorite "Wawee" won... :icon_mrgreen: Her mom was recently picking out her birthday cake... looking at pictures in a book at the bakery. She looked at Disney Princess and so on. She got to "Wall E" and Alina got so excited she nearly ripped the page out of the book. :lol:
Sure, it's always about you!!
