Several years ago, before the Afghan conflict, Barbara Walters of Television’s 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan. She noted that women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands. Recently she returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.
From Miss Walter’s vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk even further back behind their husbands and are happy to maintain the old custom they had so disliked. Miss Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, “‘Why do you now seem happy with the old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’” The woman looked Miss Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation, said, “Land Mines.” Moral of the story is (no matter where you go): BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE’S A SMART WOMAN !
PS- This is to be taken on the lighter side. Say no to DRUGS
A little rabbit happily running through the forest stumbles upon a giraffe rolling a marijuana cigarette. The rabbit looks at her and says, “Giraffe my friend, why do you do this? Think about your health. Come with me running through the forest, you’ll see, you’ll feel so much better!” The giraffe looks at him, looks at the joint, tosses it and goes off running with the rabbit.
Then they come across an elephant doing opium, so the rabbit again says, “Elephant my friend, why do you do this? Think about your health. Come running with us through the pretty forest, you’ll see, you’ll feel so good!” The elephant looks at them, looks at his razor, mirror and all, and then tosses them and starts running with the rabbit and giraffe.
The three animals then come across a lion about to take a heroin shot… The rabbit says “Lion my friend, why do you do this? Think about your health! Come running with us through the sunny forest, you will feel so good!” The lion looks at him, puts down his needle, and starts to beat the hell out of the little rabbit.
As the giraffe and elephant watch in horror, they look at him and ask, “Lion, why did you do this? He was merely trying to help us all!”
The lion answers….. …..
“That little devil makes me run around the forest like an idiot for hours every time he’s high on cocaine!”
An atheist was taking a walk through the woods.”What majestic trees…what powerful rivers…what beautiful animals,” he was saying to himself. As he continued walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes. Turning to look, he saw a ‘7-foot grizzly’ charging towards him. He began to run as fast as he could, up the path…
Looking over his shoulder, he realised that the bear was closing in on him.
His heart started pumping frantically and he tried to run even faster.
Somehow, he tripped and fell on the ground!
He rolled over to pick himself up…but, the bear was already raising its paw to take a swipe at him. At that instant…the atheist cried out:- “Oh my God!!!” Suddenly…Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.
Then…a bright light shone upon the man and a voice came out of the sky saying, “You have denied my existence for all of these years, teach others that I don’t exist and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you really expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer from now on?”
The atheist(looking directly into the light) replied, “It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps, could you please make the bear a Christian instead?”
“Very well,” said the voice.
Then, the light went out and the sounds of the forest resumed…
The bear lowered its paw, bowed its head and spoke, “Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive and for which I am truly thankful… Amen!”
