Default Re: Humor At The Dinner Table

Oh, please ....


There are plenty of more humorous things to bring up at the dinner table. One example would be ...


Taxonomy of the Moose

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata

Class: Mammalia

Order: Artiodactyla

Family: Cervidae

Genus: Alces

Species: Alces

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I, for one, don't care a whole lot about the tomato question and I doubt that tablemates would care, either. Or find it humorous.

Just as a point of information, Delaware HB 371 (introduced in 1987 by Speaker of the House) put forth the notion that cherry tomatoes, because of their leaping ability, should be banned from all banquet dinners.

Now, THAT'S funny. But you had to know the Speaker to know why it was funny. And I seriously doubt that any of my tablemates knew the Speaker. May he rest in absolute peace.
