A Guy Walks Into a Salad Bar…

Take a look at my Daily Photo

A quick post with an old joke and a new link, since I have to be in Bala Cynwyd soon and don’t have much time:

Rich Hall told this joke years and years ago on WMMR when 'MMR was still the station in Philly:
Two guys are driving down City Line Ave and arguing over how to pronounce Bala Cynwyd. One guy says it Bal-a Sin-Wid, the other guy says it Ba-la Kin-wood. After arguing for a while they decide to pull into a fast food joint and ask a local. So they go in and asks the guy behind the counter, “How do you pronounce the name of where we are right now?” And the counter guy slowly says:

Burr-Gerr King.
Anyway, if you’re like me, you don’t want to reward any companies that spent big bucks to get BushCo reelected. So before you go out shopping this weekend, check out this site, and make it a Blue (state) Christmas. It provides a list of all the companies that were naughty (gave primarily to the GOP) and nice (gave to the Dems).

Mark, At first it sounds like a great idea to buy blue. However, when I looked at the red list most of those businesses hire employees who I'm sure voted for Kerry. And since a lot of retail employees hours depend on sales who will this really hurt. Ann P.S. years ago I remember that you didn't want to buy Shell.

All those people who work for "red" stores and lose their jobs because of my boycott can go work at the "blue" stores that will need more help because they'll be getting all my business. It all works out in the end.

And I still don't go to Shell. Or Exxon.

In a fantasy world that might work. but in the real world it wouldn't happen. Are you saying that you having Christmas shop at K-Mart or Wal-Mart or any of the other stores on the red list. A boycott would only hurt those that the bleeding hearts claims to care about. Ann
