As many of you probably know, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and although many of you … okay, ALL of you … will treat this holiday as just another holiday to celebrate with drink and dance, there is some real history and modern significance to the holiday. Here, let me go to my library… I’ve got an excellent reference book here somewhere
Let me just get these … um … “artistic magazines” … out of the way first
Okay, here it is:
The Liberal Leanings of Lethal Leprechaun
oh no, wait. That one’s blank. Hang on.
Dark and Dangerous Details of Impish Dragon’s Spiritual Journeys
Damn, that one’s blank, too!
Ah, here it is: The REAL History and Explanations of Holidays, by Dr. L. L. Leprechaun…hmm, wonder what the middle L stands for? At any rate, here’s what he has to say about Cinco de Mayo:
Okay, so there you have it. A completely unbiased and factual description of this opportunity to drink and dance…. or … um … I mean special holiday.
So, from here, we take right off into our jokes and laughter….so…
Before we get started, I’d like to take the opportunity to wish our dear poetess of puns, one of our oldest and dearest dragonettes, our dear Diaman a huge Get Well Soon! From your two favorite mythological and phantasmagorical creatures…
Diaman has had a really tough couple of weeks. Without going into private details, please, in all seriousness, keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I know that Lethal and I will. Get well dear friend and fellow camper.
This next one is VERY important. I’ve always had a real sweet spot for nurses, they’re sexy, they’re smart and they love to flirt and tease. And of that, is all I will say…
Okay, so now all joking aside. I know that the last couple of cartoons have been of a humorous nature, but this one is deadly serious…
Now, you probably remember that my doctor is Lethal Leprechaun and he is a professional doctor of… are you ready for it…
If you’ve been around before you already know what his specialty is…
he’s a doctor of…
Quackery! He’s got business cards and everything.
So you see. The last one is a real threat.
But do get well dear.
So now, we can get on with the laughter and fun.

As construction workers cheered, the final two pieces of a 408-foot spire were hoisted high above their heads Thursday to the top of One World Trade Center.
Draped with the American flag, the silver spire settled on a temporary platform. Final installation of the pieces will happen later.
“(It’s a) beacon that’ll be seen for miles around and give a tremendous indication to people around the entire region, and the world, that we’re back and we’re better than ever,” said Steven Plate, director of construction, CNN affiliate WABC reported.
Once the building is complete, it will stand at a height of 1,776 feet — an allusion to the year of the birth of the nation.
Already the tallest in New York City, One World Trade Center will be the highest building in the Western Hemisphere.
Delivery of the final two sections was delayed by wind and rain, said Anthony Hayes, assistant director of media for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The crowning pieces were supposed to have been delivered last Monday morning.
Thursday is the second anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11, 2001, attacks that toppled the original World Trade Center towers.
The spire will contain 18 separate sections of steel and three communication rings. The first — and heaviest — steel section was installed in January, weighing more than 67 tons, according to a statement from the Port Authority.
It will serve as an antenna for a television broadcast facility housed in the building.
“This is like the icing on the cake for New York,” construction worker Dennis Muia said, WABC reported.

WOMAN: “Hi Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?”
WOMAN: “I’m at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It’s only $2,000.
Is it OK if I buy it?
MAN: “Sure, go ahead if you like it that much.”
WOMAN: “I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models.I saw one
I really liked.”
MAN: “How much?”
MAN: “OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.”
WOMAN: “Great! Oh, and one more thing… I was just talking to Janie and found out
that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They’re asking $980,000
MAN: “Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $900,000. They’ll probably take it.
If not, we can go the extra eighty-thousand if it’s what you really want.
WOMAN: “OK. I’ll see you later! I love you so much.”
MAN: “Bye! I love you, too”.
The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment,
mouths wide open.
He turns and asks, “Anyone know whose phone this is?”
Obama rated 5th best US President ever!
Of the total of 44 US Presidents:

* 15 presidents tied for second,
* 17 other presidents tied for third,
* Jimmy Carter came in 4th, and

The Federal Reserve Bank in Washington D.C. introduced the new one-hundred-dollar bill complete with Ben Franklin’s portrait on it plus dozens of new security features. It was time to bring out a new one-hundred-dollar bill. China’s got all the old ones.
Bill Clinton made his debut on Twitter on last week. He is not really in safe hands with technology. If you think the Secret Service protects the president, the U.S. Office of Patents delayed approval of the cell phone camera until Bill Clinton was safely out of office.
President Obama met Jordan’s King Abdullah at the White House last Friday as pressure mounted to intervene in the region. Action looks imminent. The day before, he stopped by the George W. Bush Library to give a speech and to pick up the plans for invading Syria.
A survey says that 61% of all Mexicans say they wouldn’t move to the U.S. even if they could. The other 39% say it isn’t so bad once you get here.
The U.S. paid off $35 Billion of the national debt, the first time cutting the deficit in six years. We still owe $16 Trillion. That’s about the same effect on your mortgage as finding a nickel in your living room sofa.
A study says that unemployment fraud is costing the U.S. Government $3.3 Billion a year. The problem is, when someone goes to the unemployment office and says they are out of work, who is not going to believe them?
China and France have vowed to promote a multipolar world where there is no dominant superpower. To which Joe Biden says we are already multipolar. There is the North Pole and the South Pole.

This is a GREAT idea…and I’ve seen different aspects of this. One was even a shelf…
This is a pretty cool idea, too…
This is a great idea for a house with kids or a day care…
This is really a good morning…
I really want one of these, too. Showering with a friend now means you can each have your own spigot…although, for the main shower in my quarters at the office, when I shower with the harem, we might need a few more hoses…
