From the Land Down Under

Bob Warr posted this yesterday.  He in turn got it from Leah.  It belongs here as well.

"The punters know that the horse named Morality rarely gets past the post, whereas 

the nag named Self-interest always runs a good race."

Another truism from our fried, Bob.

Vee, indeed.

Leah, it is my honor.

Chuck, Bob is fried, alright. Not, however from substance abuse, but rather simply from atrophy and petrification due to aging.

Aw, Chuck, Bob and I were just funnin' with you. We recognized the typo for what it really was.
