Every so often we’ll have a story about some fairly backward country “dissolving parliament,” and the mental image I get is… Oh, never mind.

Someone very wise once told me this: “If you are going to sin, sin boldly.”

I put fortunes and horoscopes in the same grab bag: “Up for Grins and Interpretations.” Though I have kept one close to my heart – “It could be that your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.” Why, yes, I am a tad warped:)

My last fortune cookie said my lunch companion was going to pay for my lunch. It said: “Good fortune will befall you today.” Unfortunately, I was lunching with a (metaphorically speaking) myopic literalist who did not appreciate my skills in textual interpretation.

OK: “Never give all the heart, for love will hardly seem worth thinking of to passionate women if it seem certain.” (in bed)

Add the words “in bed” to the end of your fortune. Makes quite a few of them pretty funny.

@ifly: Do compact cars grow back more quickly?
