A Little Humor

"Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life's absurdities by thinking absurdly about them." ~ Lewis Mumford

I found this in my e-mail this morning. It's too funny to not share:

A man walked into a very high-tech restaurant in a fancy hotel.

The robot clicked to attention and said,
"Sir, there is a one hour wait. I am programmed to converse with you until
a table is ready, if you please."

Intrigued, the man said, "OK."
The robot clicked a couple more times and then asked,
"Sir, what is your IQ?"
The man answered,
"Oh, about 164."

The robot then proceeded to discuss the theory of relativity, interstellar

The robot again asked,
"What is your IQ, sir?"

This time the man answered,
"Oh, about 100".

So the robot started discussing NASCAR racing, the latest basketball
scores, and what to expect the Red Sox to do this weekend.

The guy had to try it one more time. So the next day he returned.

Again the robot asked the question,
"What is your IQ?"

This time the man drawled out,
" Uh.....'bout 50."

The robot clicked, then leaned close and very slowly asked,
"Are - your - people - going - to - nominate - Hillary?"

Reminds me of something Dennis Miller said on O'Reilly Wednesday. "When death threats come from the right, at least they're spelled correctly."
