AND FINALLY…

A nice, calm, and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, “I would like to buy some cyanide.”

The pharmacist asked, “Why in the world do you need cyanide?”

The lady replied, “I need it to poison my husband.”

The pharmacist’s eyes got big and he exclaimed, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!”

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and said, “You didn’t tell me you had a prescription.”

    I’m safe! My toothbrush is 10 feet from the toilet.

    As a young devotee to orgami, I was intrigued on how many folds you can get in paper. Years ago a young high schooler came up with a record of 12 folds. It was NOT standard paper. 🙂 A Brit out to break her record calculated it would take over 2 miles of paper. Judge for yourself if he succeeded (I say no.) But a fun break from politics:

    I could not replicate BP’s video.

    BAYSIDER..COOL! I LOVED Origami, too, when I was young and I’m sure we both admire still the really intricate ones.
    I have NO idea if the SEVEN FOLDS is true or not but it’s a fascinating thought.

    Did you try the glasses/arrows??!!!

    I did try the glass with arrows. What was fun about the video is how long the paper has to be to get [almost] 13 folds, and the calcs they did to estimate it.

    I orgami-ed out at my wedding. I bought hand made paper in my colors and made a pair of orgami boxes in which I put a custom truffle for each guest. I was SO SICK of folding by the time I was done. I think I did about 100. I was going to make the truffles, too, but thought better of it and called my baker, the old French baker down on Pico across from Trader Joe’s.

    That’s funny Mal 🙂
