"Blowing out someone else's candle won't make yours shine brighter. Remember that."
As a little girl climbed onto Santa's lap, Santa asked the usual question,
"And what would you like for Christmas?"
The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped:
"Didn't you get my email?"
The Season of Advent was beginning, and I wanted to inform the children that, according the Bible, Jesus is coming twice, once as the baby in the manger, and then as King.
So I asked the children, "How did Jesus come the first time?"
One child answered, "Down the chimney."
"Every time we use religion to draw a line to keep people out, Jesus is with the people on the other side of that line."
- Hugh L. Hollowell

It actually read "Beef Recall."
The story explained the discovery of mad cow disease in the United States. Mad cow disease is a condition that causes wasting away of the brain, leading to dementia, loss of coordination, and death.
Now, will somebody please explain to me why they're not recalling beer?
