Motto of the Month: December 2010
During the holidays, the selections of the LHBMA, I. Bored of Judges frequently reflect higher thoughts and this month the judges have carefully chosen a motto from an expert on higher thoughts, Russ Mollo, to wit:
WHEN CHOOSING BETWEEN TWO EVILS
pick the one you've never tried before
Since Joe, our official parade horse, refuses to wear a Santa Hat, President Russ will. All parade goers should assemble at the corner of Haight and Asbury. There, your wassail cup will be filled with a warm liquid of your choice. After the appropriate toasts, the parade will commence accompanied by Charlie King's Naked Accordion Band. Pinches and bruises may ensue, so bring your first aid kits. Or sunglasses, whichever you prefer.
It's much easier to get forgiveness than permission.
The Association's Committee on Money and Credit reports that: A dime is as valuable as it ever was - when used as a screwdriver; Inflation lets us live in more expensive neighborhoods without even moving; and, It takes losers to make winners possible.
Middle age is when lifetime guarantees begin to wear out.
Mottoes we received this month that didn't make the grade include: "IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE - or maybe it's the other way around," from Jeff Ramclam, "THE NATIONAL DEBT IS REALLY NOTHING (about 12 nothings preceded by you-pick-a-number)," from Bob Thomas; and, "DO UNTO OTHERS WHAT YOU FIGURE THEY'LL DO TO YOU - but do it first," from Arnold Johnson.
You don't have to be crazy to work here. We'll train you.
