I didn’t realize that there was a site called “Lamebook,” which publishes funny things people put on Facebook. (I’m assuming it’s real, since they redact the names.) And by “funny,” I mean unintentionally funny. Given the fact that this is America, and people are constantly spewing their merest thoughts into the ether, there’s bound to be some good stuff out there. (I participate minimally on Facebook, just for lack of time).
Reader Lauren sent me this funny exchange (the humor here is intentional) on a matter of our common interest:
As Stephen Hawking said, “Science wins because it works.”
Which reminds me of a joke, one I’ve probably told before:
An American minister goes to the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem and is astounded to see in one enclosure a lion and a lamb. Unable to contain himself, he rushes to the director’s office. “I must tell you how wonderful this is,” he exclaims. “Here we are in this violent, hate-filled land, yet I see, as the Biblical prophecy of Isaiah has it, a lion and a lamb lying down together. How do you do it?”
The director shrugs. “Easy. Every morning we toss in another lamb.”
