The Joke That Came True...or maybe it always was

The punchline in the joke below certainly rings true and also relates to that oft used slogan...or rather the definition of insanity, "Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results."  If you have to ask yourself who would do such a thing it would be a good time to look in the mirror for the nearest culprit.  Just how many times have you voted to re-elect someone?  Did you see any change?  Nope...everything just got worse.  The 2012 elections are just around the corner so I would suggest that if you would like to see some real change, vote the bums out!  Never, never, re-elect the guy that promised you things will get better.  The only things that get better are the bank accounts of the politicians. 

The following joke has made the cyber space mail route many times and I would suggest that maybe we should not laugh because it's true!

The 4th Marriage

A woman who had been married three times walked into a bridal shop one day and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding.

"Of course, madam," replied the sales clerk, "exactly what type and color dress are you looking for?"

The bride to be said: "A long frilly white dress with a veil."

The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, "Please don't take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time - for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?"

"Well," replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's directness, "I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride. You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our hotel.”

"My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again."

"What about your third husband?" asked the sales clerk.

"That one was a Democrat," said the woman, "and every night for four years, he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be, but nothing ever happened
