SCRUMPED FROM ZOLA'S ORCHARD

ben trovato says:

Sauntering around the websites, I picked up this windfall from Zola's place:

A kid comes home from school with a writing assignment. He asks his father for help. "Dad, can you tell me the difference between potential and reality?"

His father looks up, thoughtfully, and then says, "I'll demonstrate. Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Robert Redford for a million dollars. Then go ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then come back and tell me what you've learned."

The kid is puzzled, but decides to ask his mother. "Mom, if someone gave you a million dollars, would you sleep with Robert Redford?"

"Don't tell your father, but, yes, I would."

He then goes to his sister's room. "Sis, if someone gave you a million dollars, would you sleep with Brad Pitt?"

She replies, "Omigod! Definitely!"

The kid goes back to his father. "Dad, I think I've figured it out. Potentially, we are sitting on two million bucks, but in reality, we are living with two sluts."

Scrumping in the orchard?
What next - Friggin' in the Riggin'?

Anyway, I scrumped in the Comedy Central website - I was looking for suitable Paul Wolfowitz stories.
None to be found, so far.
Only a matter of time.

Keep on keeping on. Maybe at the end of this Wolfie's darker secrets will be revealed and we shall have a Grand Boot [or Box] Sale!

This scrumping is really something.
When THE TIMES must scrump articles from THE TRIBUNE then the Empire is truly crumbling.
This is exactly what is wrong with British industry and Enterprise.

You have not got a naked Helen Mirren - yet. You will, you will.

The Cook, the Thief, The Wife and The Lover - Peter Greenaway.
Lots of Her Majesty on show.

Give me Helen Mirren every time. You can keep Susan George [but you couldn't afford to].
