I was going through a phase of putting jokes up as the title for the posts, but this one deserves special attention. You see, we beat the scum 3-0 on the weekend. A very enjoyable game. One which was close until the first two goals went in. Of course, every Arsenal fan was concerned that the score at half time in the midweek game against West Ham was 2-0 and the game ended in a draw. My kids watched the first to goals go in, but went to bed at half time. But the victory was all the sweeter considering that one member of the Scum thought that they had a better squad than us!
Anyway, it was Halloween last week. On Saturday, we went out with the kids, trick-or-treating and found quite a few familiar faces. First, we spent time with Sally, Simon and the kids, as well as meeting up with other from down the road. And then out on the streets getting sweets. Or rather the kids went out for sweets. While out there, we met Jo and Patrick from the Lemon Tree and I had to keep running back to make sure that kids got sweets when they knocked on ours. Anyway, once again, I am tired, and want to go to bed. I hope you all like this joke...
A Greek and an Irishman were sitting in a Starbuck's cafe one day discussing who had the superior culture.
Over triple lattes the Greek guy says, 'Well, we Greeks built the Parthenon,' arching his eyebrows.
The Irishman then replies, 'Well... it was the Irish that discovered the Summer and Winter Solstices.'
The Greek retorts, 'We Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics.'
The Irishman, nodding in agreement, says, 'Irish were the ones who built the first timepieces and calendars.'
And so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion.
With a flourish of finality he says, 'The Greeks were the ones who invented sex!'
The Irishman replies, 'Indeed, that is true, but it was we Irish who introduced it to women.'
