If only ...
« on: December 04, 2021, 01:36:08 PM »
Darn, can't remember where I found this  ...

Please excuse, if had already been posted in here.

A guy is visiting San Francisco, and walks into a small store in Chinatown.
He notices a small bronze statue of a rat.
He asks the owner "how much", and the owner replies "$50 for the bronze rat, and $1000 for the story behind it."
The guy says, "forget the story", and buys the rat.

As he's walking down the street he notices two live rats following him. As he continues to walk, more rats start following him.
He starts to get a little concerned, and heads for the waterfront. By the time he gets there there are thousands and thousands of rats following him.
He walks up to the end of the pier and throws the bronze rat into the bay, and the rats all follow and leap off of the pier and drown.
The guy rushes back to the store and walks in. The owner says, "Ah!, so your back for the story".

The guys says, "No, I was wondering if you have any bronze liberals?"

Please pray for our country in these turbulent times ...
It really is the best in the world & I can't stand the thought of losing it.

I'm afraid that would be the only way to make San Francespool close to being liveable again for normal people.

Even the rats had to dodge the human turds and the used syringes -- they're not stupid, they're rats.
