 From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 10/03/14 - "Have a nice day (#12 in a series of 18)":
Six Truths in Life
1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.
2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.
3. And discover #1 is a lie.
4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.
5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.
I sincerely apologize about this but I'm an idiot and I needed company... Have a bright sunny day!

    GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!
