April Fool's Day

NASA Budget Woes
Due to cuts in the Federal Budget for NASA, the space program administrators are coming up with new means for earning funds to support the program. Just recently they have adopted the concept of purchasing of advertising directly on the launch rockets and the shuttle (like NASCAR race cars). This picture shows what you will likely see at the next launch.

Other options be
ing studied include the selling of lottery tickets for a trip into space sometime in the future. Also, NASA may be selling sponsorship of missions. Instead of names like Endeavor and Discovery, you might be seeing names like "Big Mac Express", "Built Ford Tough", "Sonic Good", etc. in the future.

A Good Story for Today
In Florida, an atheist became incensed over the preparation of the Easter, and Passover holidays. He decided to contact his lawyer about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays, while atheists had no holiday to celebrate.

The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the long passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel and declared, "Case dismissed!"

The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter, and many other observances. Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!"

The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, "Obviously your client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate, his own atheist holiday!"

The lawyer pompously said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any such holiday for atheists. Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?"

The judge said, "Well it comes every year on exactly the same date - April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as 'April Fools Day,' consider that Psalm 14:1 states: 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, in my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by scripture, he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday! Now have a good day and get out of my courtroom!"

Many thanks to Mark T. for sending me the above story.

Joke of the Day

A married couple, both 60 years old, were celebrating their 35th anniversary. During their party, a fairy appeared to congratulate them and grant them each one wish.

The wife wanted to travel around the world. The fairy waved her wand and poof - the wife had tickets in her hand for a world cruise.

Next, the fairy asked the husband what he wanted. He said; "I wish I had a wife 30 years younger than me." So the the fairy picked up her wand and poof - the husband was 90.
