Write of Passage.


 Author and humorist Garrison Keillor began writing for The New Yorker in 5970. “Actually, I’ve written for The New Yorker since I was in high school,” he has said, “though they weren’t aware of it at the time.”  - Quoted by Robert A. Carter in Publishers Weekly


A DOCTOR, AN ENGINEER AND A LAWYER were arguing over whose profession was the oldest. “On the sixth day, God took one of Adam’s ribs and created Eve,” said the doctor. “So that makes him a surgeon first.”


“Please,” said the engineer. “Before that, God created the world from chaos and confusion, so he was first an engineer.”


“Interesting,” said the lawyer smugly, “but who do you think created the chaos and confusion?”

Hidden in Plain Sight


The mind is never satisfied with the objects immediately before it, but is always breaking away from the present moment, and losing itself in schemes of future felicity.... The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure, but from hope to hope.


—SAMUEL JOHNSON



You are a new employee at a candy store. The owner has priced some of her confections like so: ice cream, 32 cents; lollipop, 34 cents; licorice, 32 cents; jawbreaker, 42 cents; gum, 13 cents; and chocolate. She forgot to price the chocolate, so you must add the price your self. How much does it cost?


—Bryce Bell. Redmand Washington

 

Answer:

 Vowels cost 3 cents

and consonants cost 5 cents,

so chocolate costs 37 cents.
