Posted on 04/12/2003 4:04:21 AM PDT by BigWaveBetty
A man was blissfully driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the Bunny, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of his car and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the place. Candy, too.
The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see that the colorful little Bunny was dead. The driver felt guilty and began to cry.
A woman driving down the same highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.
"I feel terrible," he explained, "I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny and killed it. There may not be an Easter because of me. What should I do?"
The woman told the man not to worry. She knew exactly what to do. She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead Bunny, and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the poor little bunny.
Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped on down the road. Fifty yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned round, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again!!!!
The man was astonished. He said to the woman, "What in heavens name is in your spray can? What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny?"
The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: "Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave."
It looks as though OIF has worked in many different ways:
North Korea Drops Its Demand For One-on-One Talks With U.S.
Shift Could Remove Obstacle to Negotiations on Nuclear Program
SEOUL, April 12 -- North Korea today dropped its demand for one-on-one negotiations with the United States, saying it "will not stick to any particular dialogue format" but will test whether "the U.S. has a political willingness to drop its hostile policy."
The change of position, announced by a Foreign Ministry spokesman, appears to be a concession to the Bush administration's demand for multinational talks about North Korea's nuclear program. Full story
Former Iran president says Tehran should consider ways to restore ties with US
Iran's former president offered Saturday to help restore ties with the United States. Hashemi Rafsanjani said the nation's Expediency Council, of which he is a member, should consider the issue.
The council advises Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader and an opponent of restoring ties with the United States. Rafsanjani also had opposed those ties since stepping down as president in 1997.
Rafsanjani said "the problem of Iran-U.S. relations" should be resolved, either through a referendum or through a decision by the advisory body. Either way, the final decision would have to be confirmed by Khamenei, the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) quoted him as saying. (Albawaba.com) Link

And now some contrast.
Senator puts his charitable image on auction block
U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry, who was scorched in his 1996 campaign for making only piddling donations to charity, apparently hasn't gotten any more generous since deciding he wanted to become president.
At a recent charity event for Holy Name Parish School in West Roxbury, Kerry was among a slew of politicians, businesses and others who chipped in items for a ``Reach for the Stars'' auction.
Most of the pols and corporate bigwigs donated expensive dinners, tickets or other valuable items for the auction, which raised money for science and reading textbooks.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino graciously submitted an exclusive catered dinner at the Parkman House. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston) offered a personal tour of the White House and a lunch in the House member's dining room - an item valued as ``priceless'' by auction organizers.
City Councilor John Tobin came through with a coveted pair of Red Sox tickets in the new Green Monster seats. U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and the Stenger family offered a painting by Kennedy of his boat, ``The Maya.'' [I can't believe anyone thought a painting by the bloated one would be a good thing.]
Other auction items included Celtics tickets, a round of golf at the prestigious Country Club in Brookline and a weekend at a Nantucket inn.
So what did Kerry offer?
An 8 x 10 autographed photo - of himself.
The winning bid was a grand total of $18, according to sources. That would pay for about one chapter of a textbook.
``It was either the signed photo or personal guitar lessons from Sen. Kerry,'' said Kerry spokesman Kyle Sullivan. ``We thought the photo had more value.''
Looks like Teresa isn't loosening the pursestrings even a tiny bit for her dear husband, or he at least could have offered a case of pickles.
I swear, only Democrats hate freedom more (or as much as) tyrants.
I'm grammatically challenged this a.m. I meant "more than."
EXTREME BAD TASTE alert:
FASHION designer Stella McCartney had to be edited at a recent Beverly Hills gala in her honor sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Cedars-Sinai. McCartney told event organizers she "wanted to pick out the tablecloths for the gala," an insider told New York magazine. The pattern she came up with featured monkeys fornicating with human skeletons. For good measure, some of the monkeys were holding guns to their heads. The tables were covered in light pink and white instead. Page Six
THIS JUST IN: Photos of rescued POWs here
Topping the list of big-name speakers is Clinton, America's 42nd president and former Arkansas governor. He will deliver the commencement speech at Tougaloo College in Jackson at 10 a.m. May 18. Clinton will also receive an honorary doctor of humane letters degree from Tougaloo President Beverly Hogan. link.
Cheers all, we went shooting today and I'm fading fast...zzzzzzzzz.
