Joke-Free Zone

Some communities have "drug-free school zones." Martinsville has one that's even better: a joke-free zone:

Henry County Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, H.G. Vaughn [was quoted] as saying “the jingle contest…is not something you joke about.”

I bow before the Chairman's obviously superior (if unknowing) sense of the absurd. (HT: Waldo).

By the way, here's a link to the story about all this on the Martisnville Bulletin's website. It's dubbed the "Top Story," which tells me it's one heckuva slow news day.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
