Two things that made me laugh today…

I submit two items for your enjoyment.


(HT: Life in Oregon)


Karl sent me a link to this story from The Chattanoogan.

Apparently, the people in Atlanta are so thirsty they are trying to take some of the Tennessee River from the people in Chattanooga. The mayor of Chattanooga had to put a stop to it. So he’s sending a truckload of bottled water to Georgia’s legislature. Here’s his proclamation:


WHEREAS, it has come to pass that the heavens are shut up and a drought of Biblical proportions has been visited upon the Southern United States, and

WHEREAS, the parched and dry conditions have weighed heavily upon the State of Georgia and sorely afflicted those who inhabit the Great City of Atlanta, and

WHEREAS, the leaders of Georgia have assembled like the Children of Israel in the desert, grumbled among themselves and have begun to cast longing eyes toward the north, coveting their neighbor’s assets, and

WHEREAS, the lack of water has led some misguided souls to seek more potent refreshment or for other reasons has resulted in irrational and outrageous actions seeking to move a long established and peaceful boundary, and

WHEREAS, it is deemed better to light a candle than curse the darkness, and better to offer a cool, wet kiss of friendship rather than face a hot and angry legislator gone mad from thirst, and

Whereas, it is feared that if today they come for our river, tomorrow they might come for our Jack Daniels or George Dickel,

NOW THEREFORE, In the interest of brotherly love, peace, friendship, mutual prosperity, citywide self promotion, political grandstanding and all that

I Ron Littlefield, Mayor of the City of Chattanooga, Tennessee,

Do hereby Proclaim that Wednesday, February 27, 2008 shall be known as

“Give Our Georgia Friends a Drink Day”

  1. My kids are going to be quoting, “Don’t talk back to Darth Vader, he’ll get ya!” all day! Very funny!


  2. That is funny. It’s really been rough down there, though. I can’t imagine only having water from 4-7PM and trying to do all the laundry, baths, dinner, etc. What about a stomach virus, or somone wetting the bed. What about people that work until 6, or work 2nd shift. I just pray we get lots of rain soon. We’re too close for comfort and our water levels are so low…


  3. I just saw that cute little three year old on youtube yesterday myself! Her mom’s comments on the youtube site are funny too. Supposedly, there’s more, but mom didn’t get it all on tape. I would love to hear the rest of it!
