    An actual guestion asked to TV game contestants------

    "From YOUR bedroom window, does the sun rise in the North, South, East or West?"

    Most of them got it wrong.

    The fellow in the office next to mine recently acquired an office accessory (a rather large letter holder) which came in a cardboard box on which was printed, in inch-high capital letters,


    To underscore the point, the unmistakable silhouette of the Statue of Liberty was printed just to the left of the slogan.

    Do you think the folks who chose the Statue of Liberty for this appeal to patriotism remembered where the Statue of Liberty itself was made? :hysterical::hysterical:

    "No, that isn't a new speed bump. Highway workers in an Ohio county recently paved over a dead deer laying on the edge of the road. When asked why they did it, the manager of their garage said that they didn't see it. The mayor of a nearby town said that the deer had been laying there for about three weeks.

    "The Director of the Ohio Highway Department said that it is not the state's policy to pave over carcasses in the road."

    And then the reporter's commentary:

    "Not the state's policy? Does this mean this has happened before?"

    And my (imaginary) follow-up story:

    The game warden for that area, when he learned of the incident, began an investigation to see if the highway workers had engaged in poaching. When he learned that the paving process involves petroleum products at high temperature, he closed the investigation stating that clearly the deer was fried, not poached.

    And my commentary:

    Will this incident cause the present law that restricts hunting from a vehicle to be amended to permit hunting from paving equipment?
