    The Lone Ranger and Tonto are camping in the desert, set up their tent, and are asleep. Some hours later, The Lone Ranger wakes his faithful friend.
    "Tonto, look up and tell me what you see."
    Tonto replies, "Me see millions of stars."
    "What does that tell you?" asks The Lone Ranger.
    Tonto ponders for a minute.
    "Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
    Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.
    Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.
    Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all powerful and we are small and insignificant.
    Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.
    What it tell you, Kemo Sabi?"
    The Lone Ranger is silent for a moment, then speaks.
    "Tonto, you Dumb Hoss, someone has stolen our tent."

    Childless couple told to try sex

    A German couple who went to a fertility clinic after eight years of
    marriage have found out why they are still childless - they weren't having

    The University Clinic of Lubek said they had never heard of a case like
    it after examining the couple who went to see them last month for
    fertility tests.

    Doctors subjected them to a series of examinations and found they were
    both apparently fertile, and should have had no trouble conceiving.

    A clinic spokesman said: "When we asked them how often they had had
    sex, they looked blank, and said: "What do you mean?".

    "We are not talking retarded people here, but a couple who were brought
    up in a religious environment who were simply unaware, after eight
    years of marriage, of the physical requirements necessary to procreate."

    The 30-year-old wife and her 36-year-old husband are now being given
    sex therapy lessons while the university clinic undertakes a study to try
    to find out if there are more couples with a similar lack of sex

    It's the logical end result of the Bush Administration's preferred sexual education mindset.

    Didn't you notice this happened in Germany?

    The Bush administration can not be blamed for that one. Especially since both of them are in their thirties.

    What I was pointing out, which of course was completely over your head, was that the German couple serve as the logical end result of the Bushies and their fundie friends goal with sexual education. It's what the result would be if things go according to their plan.

    I doubt that very much.

    There are to many dirty old men like me to show them the way.

    Besides the pendulem of public morals will swing the other way soon enough.

    We can only hope.

By TBone on Wednesday, May 19, 2004 - 05:36 pm:

    You mean the sex-is-bad/violence-is-good pendulum will swing over to sex-is-good/violence-is-bad?

    Let's hope so.

    Heh, I almost posted exactly those words, Sem. But then I decided to elaborate.

    I find dirty old men to be creepy. especially when they refer to themselves as dirty old men.

By Gee on Thursday, May 20, 2004 - 10:38 am:
