A Nurse and an Intern

A nurse is giving a young medical intern a tour of the hospital.

The intern approaches one bedridden patient and asks, “Why are you here?” 

The patient replies, “Wee sleket cowerin’ timrous beastie/O, what a panic is in thy breastie.”

The intern moves on to the next bed and asks the same question, “Why are you here?” 

The patient answers, “O, my luv is like a red, red, rose that’s newly sprung in June.”

The intern moves on to a third bed and asks again, “Why are you here?” 

To which the third patient replies, “The best laid plans of mice and men, may often gang awry.”

At this the intern turns to the nurse and asks, “What ward is this, anyway?” 

And the nurse answers, “It’s the Burns Unit.”

Have a Good Year!

There's been a lot of complaining that 2016 was the worst year ever; especially with the number of celebrities who died in 2016 and the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency. Yes, I'll agree that I wish those things didn't happen. But, hell! Life will go on anyway; and we need to pick up and deal with it.

Here's a reminder by Louis Armstrong about the present. I hope this will serve as a cheer up. This is one of the most optimistic songs ever recorded.

The Last of the Red-Hot Llamas

While my wife and I  were shopping last week, we found this intriguing Christmas decoration for sale at Target. How about a Christmas llama? Maybe this will catch on . . . .



After all, in Catalonia, there is Tio de Nadal. He's a log that poops out presents. No crap:  


Maison Blanche, a store in New Orleans, uses Mr. Bingle each Christmas for a long time. He has a fey little voice.


Have you encountered any odd Christmas characters?
