    An otherwise sane peoples go a little insane for 1 week,

    PAMPLONA, Spain – At least three people were gored and several others suffered scrapes and cuts on Saturday in Spain's running of the bulls.

    A spokesman for the annual San Fermin festival said one fan was gored in the mouth and two others in the legs and buttocks. Other runners were hurt when they slipped and fell.

    (With a parachute, of course, not completely crazy! :D)

    Having been re-certified you can have anything you want. The only caveot is that you must hop around on one foot whilst singing the 'Calvin & Hobbs' Sorry song.

    Play on, ed

    PS....You may also qualify for a Diplomy from the 'Edwardo & Buckerino' sheepskin mill for a small consideration.

    The story above tells it all! I do have a few questions though. What is the Maids name and phone #? Where was he gored? Is he still able to Yodel? Is there a video? Who is burried in Grant's Tomb? What idiot decided the spelling of phonetics? Oh oh, Nurse Rotunda says it's time for my bath. Dang!! I thought it was Nurse Cheryl's turn!!

    Rubber eagl.....err...ducky time, big ed

    As you have been kind enough to ask ed, I will try and fill in some of your question:-

    Swiss Maid....That was her name...Swiss maid.....she was maid in Switzerland, often....

    As to where the goring injuries took place is rather too delicate to describe, suffice to say, have you seen the length of a Alpenhorn??...

    Yes, he can still Yodel but only on a Tuesday morning and he has to be accompanied by a Police Officer at all times.......

    There was a Video but it was confiscated by the Swiss 'Rule of Law Legislation'....(Known in the Underworld as 'Swiss Roll'),,,because it showed, in the background, the Swiss Navy exersizing on Lake Lucerne and was considered too pornographic for public viewing and Sailors.....

    Who's buried in Grants Tomb?......Cary Grant, any film buff knows that......

    D. David and R. Robert invented Phonetics....or was that Alvar Edison....errr...No...If I'm NOT mistaken I think Edison built Edison Lighthouse....I might be wrong but if I'am...mind your own business......

    Dang Chise, but you are in fine form today. Really a classic suitable for framing. Your post created such a hullabaloo at the 'Home' that everyone had to be sedated. Most had to get a gentle tap on the noggin but, lucky me, I got a rubdown from Greta (the Swiss lass).

    Fakin it, ed

    My Barrister, Rumphole(?) will meet w/your lousy mouthpiece at the 'Old Bailey' at 9:47 AM sharp to discuss settlement terms. I think the goings on at your abode is pretty standard operating procedure. Have you ever seen the movie 'Soylent Green'?
