Friday’s Odds and Ends

I read in the newspaper that the Texas Department of Transportation recently gave workers a raise. I thought that was quite nice until I noted that the top tier of managers got up to a 17% raise, while those in the trenches only got a small raise. Just another example of those who do the most work getting the least compensation. Sigh…

That is my only rant for today. Aren’t you glad? Week two of drama camp wound down today, and it has been a busy two weeks. We have a performance tomorrow evening and one on Sunday, and then it is all over. I think I will sleep all day Monday. LOL

This first one is a real groaner from The Argyle Sweater.

A man is carrying a pig toward a business Penelope’s Pig Grooming. A sign on the front door reads: We’ll trim your pigs nails for free.  The caption reads: Where bacon bits come from.

(I may never eat bacon bits again.)

Next from Mother Goose and Grimm.

In the first panel, Grimm is working on his laptop. Ralph comes up and says, “Grimm, I finally found a Minotaur, a wise and trusted adviser who can help me make big decisions in life.”

Grimm says, “Ha, ha, Ralph. You mean you found a mentor. A Minotaur is a mythical  flesh-eating monster with a head of a bull and the body of a man.”

In the final panel, Ralph says to his new friend that has the head of a bull and the body of a man, “I’m going to have to let you go, Bob.”
