Here are more snippets from the one liner file. While preparing RHF, I collect short jokes that aren't quite worthy of an individual posting in the one liner file. Every so often I put digests of these out to the group. (Beware that some readers, such as NN, will mistakenly present all these items in the digest as individual articles. Undigestification is a stupid kludge, but you have to live with it.) These short items may contain swearing, mature themes and stereotypes. = = = = = = = From: CMYERS@sctnve.UUCP Subject: NO SUBJECT PROVIDED This was taking from the 11/26/90 issue of the Gwinnett Daily News: Something to think about...

Partington) Subject: Unpopular ministers Jokes about Kenneth Clarke, when U.K. Secretary of State for Health. What do you call a man who ignores doctors' advice? The health secretary. Kenneth Clarke dies this morning. Doctors said his condition was 'satisfactory'. Now that KC has become Education Secretary, the first joke has been updated: What do you call a man who doesn't listen to what his teachers tell him? The education secretary. = = = = = = = From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: A joke for philosophers Why did the epistemologist cross the road?

It seems to me that, if he can spend money that way, that he should be working for the government. After all, at least he realizes that some is missing after he spends it. Jonathan W.

This is a variant on an old joke as I understand it. I do not know who wrote it originally. One day I found the first 3 lines on the whiteboard in our CS department's lounge room, a few days later someone else added the forth. I added the last line. It's probably the Quals Stress Syndrome. :-) "To be is to do." <- Nietzsche => "To do is to be." <- Kant => "do be do be do" <- Frank Sinatra => "Yabba dabba doo" <- Fred Flintstone => "Dooooohhhhh!" <- Homer Simpson = = = = = = = From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Steven Gardner) Subject: a small light dawns...
