    Maybe if I tell a joke...

    Cray was visiting Haggis the other night and asked if he could borrow a newspaper.

    "Good sir, this is the 21st century," Haggis said. "I don't waste money on newspapers. But if you like, you can borrow my iPad."

    I can tell you this: That spider never knew what hit him.

    Sure, but nobody ever talks about the aftermath.

    Miss Muffett finished her curds and whey, and a couple bowls of Cap'n Crunch and a pound of bacon, ended up getting hugely fat and was ridiculed by her little peers, got herself to a nunnery where they didn't have a habit large enough to fit her, so she threw herself in the river and drowned.
