My calendar for Tuesday looks empty. I know that this is a snare and a delusion. I’ll get 8 million phone calls and as many demands on my time by 10 a.m. I thought, therefore, that I’d start the day with something simple: lots and lots of totally awesome political cartoons and posters, some of which I found on my own, but most of which readers (especially Caped Crusader, Sadie, and Earl) were kind enough to forward to me:
And of course, the joke, which Earl was kind enough to forward to me:
A few years ago, the terrorist organization Hamas, sent a gift to the President of Israel in an elaborate box with a note.
After having the box checked for safety reasons, the President of Israel, Mr. Shimon Peres, opened the box and saw that
the content was feces (aka, shit, merde).
He opened the note which said “For you and the proud people of Israel.”
Being a wise and experienced person, he decided to reciprocate, sending Hamas a very pretty package and a note.
The leaders of Hamas were very surprised to receive the parcel and opened it very carefully suspecting that it might contain a bomb.
But to their surprise they saw that it contained a tiny computer “chip.
The chip was rechargeable with solar energy, had a 1800 Terabyte memory and could output a 3D hologram display, capable of functioning in any type of cellular phone, tablet or laptop.
It was one of the world’s most advanced technologies.
Invented and produced in Israel.
The accompanying note to the Hamas leaders stated very courteously…
“Every leader gives the best his people can produce.”
