Little Pellets, Flat Pattys and Clumps of Dried Grass

Dan Rather of CBS news was seated next to little Tommy on the plane when
Rather turned to the boy and said, "Let's talk, I've heard that flights
go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passengers.
Little Tommy, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, and said
to Rather, "What would you like to discuss?"

"Oh, I don't know" said Rather, "How about politics? Should we keep Bush
as president or elect Kerry?"

"OK" said Little Tommy, "That could be an interesting topic but let me
ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat grass. The
same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out
flat pattys, and a horse excretes clumps of dried grass. Why do you
think that is?"

"Jeez" said Rather, "I have no idea."

"Well then" said Little Tommy, "How is it you feel qualified to discuss
who should run this country when you don't know shit?"

The reason Dan Rathers has problems is because he keeps insisting on speaking. My Dad told me when I was just a kid, that it is better to remain silent and be thought the fool than to speak and remove all doubt. Every time Dan Rathers speaks, his right foot becomes lodged deep within his mouth, quite possibly tickiling his tonsils, if he still has them, Lord knows his mind left long ago. He needs to be put out to pasture. They shoot horses, don't they? ak'sr4me
