Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day was the headline from the Fillmore Gazette back on December 17, 2008. This funny story set the detail around the new Atheist Holy Day, April Fool’s Day. It is a good read.
In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews & observances of their holy days. The argument was….it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized day(s).
The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, “Case dismissed.”
The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, “Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter & others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur & Hanukkah. Yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays.”
The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, “But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant.”
The lawyer said, “Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.”
The judge said. The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, “The fool says in his heart, there is no God.” Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.
Reported by ANI on Friday, Clint Eastwood, actor, director, and famous for his Dirty Harry roles, said something about political correctness I can agree with. Mr Eastwood stated this about political correctness:
“People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
“I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a ‘Sam the Jew’ or ‘Jose the Mexican’ – but we didn’t think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don’t want to be politically correct.
It is about time we lighten up. Because humor can be good medicine for us during these tough times. Let’s end PC talk.
With all the uproar in the current political scene, this story should get you to laugh out loud. 🙂
An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a male buffalo with the other. He says to the waiter: ‘Want coffee.’
The waiter says, ‘Sure, Chief. Coming right up.’
He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee. The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.
The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shot gun in one hand, pulling another male buffalo with the other. He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter, ‘Want coffee.’
The waiter says ‘Whoa, Tonto! We’re still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?’
The Indian smiles and proudly says ..
‘Training for position in United States Congress: Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day.
After this election, we need some good fun entertainment. So, check out the South Park’s election episode called About Last Night. A nice spoof about the election and Ocean Eleven. And don’t do what Stan’s father did, you’ll need it when Mr Obama actually becomes president.
