As Grandmother used to say

These great questions and answers are from the days when Hollywood Squares'
responses were spontaneous, not scripted, as they are now!
Q.Which of your five senses tends to diminish as you get older
A. Charley Weaver: My sense of decency..
Keep this in mind the next time you are about to repeat a rumour or spread
In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.
One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you
know what I just heard about Diogenes?"
"Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a
little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
'Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance.
"That's right," Socrates continued, "Before you talk to me about Diogenes let's
take a moment to filter what you're going
to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you
are about to tell me is true?"
"No," the man said, "Actually I just heard about it."
"All right," said Socrates, "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now
let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness.
Is what you are about to tell me about Diogenes something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that
may be bad, even though you're not certain
The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass
the test though, because there is a third filter,
the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to
be useful to me?"
"No, not really."
"Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is neither True nor
Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me or
anyone at all?"
The man was bewildered and ashamed. This is an example of why Socrates was a
great philosopher and held in such high
It also explains why Socrates never found out that Diogenes was screwing his

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in
the ribs and cackling, telling me, 'You're next.'
They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
A YOUNG MAN CALLED PETER INVITED HIS MOTHER FOR
DINNER. DURING THE COURSE OF THE MEAL, HIS MOTHER
COULDN'T HELP BUT NOTICE HOW BEAUTIFUL PETER'S
SHE HAD LONG BEEN SUSPICIOUS OF A RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN THE TWO, AND THIS ONLY MADE HER MORE
OVER THE COURSE OF THE EVENING, WHILE WATCHING
THE TWO INTERACT, SHE STARTED TO WONDER IF THERE
WAS MORE BETWEEN PETER AND HIS FLATMATE THAN
MET THE EYE.
READING HIS MUM'S THOUGHTS, PETER VOLUNTEERED,
KNOW WHAT YOU MUST BE THINKING, BUT I ASSURE YOU,
JULIE & I ARE JUST FLATMATES AND FRIENDS.
ABOUT A WEEK LATER, JULIE CAME TO PETER SAYING, EVER
SINCE YOUR MOTHER CAME TO DINNER, I'VE BEEN UNABLE
TO FIND THE FRYING PAN, YOU DON'T SUPPOSE SHE TOOK
IT DO YOU? WELL, I DOUBT IT, BUT I'LL E-MAIL HER JUST
TO BE SURE, SAID PETER, SO HE SAT DOWN AND WROTE:
I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU TOOK THE FRYING PAN FROM MY
HOUSE, I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU DID NOT TAKE THE FRYING
PAN, BUT THE FACT REMAINS THAT IT HAS BEEN MISSING EVER
SINCE YOU WERE HERE FOR DINNER.
SEVERAL DAYS LATER, PETER RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM HIS
MOTHER WHICH READ:
I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU SLEEP WITH JULIE, AND I'M NOT
SAYING THAT YOU DO NOT SLEEP WITH JULIE, BUT THE FACT
REMAINS THAT IF SHE WAS SLEEPING IN HER OWN BED, SHE
WOULD HAVE FOUND THE FRYING PAN BY NOW.
A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a
very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very
little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a
Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk.
She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she
decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around
the house than the drunk.
He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and
knew a lot about ranching.
For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.
Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, 'You have
done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into
town and kick up your heels.'
The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night.
One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return. Two o'clock and no
hired hand. Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering
the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a
glass of wine, waiting for him.
She quietly called him over to her.
'Unbutton my blouse and take it off,' she said.
Trembling, he did as she directed.
'Now take off my boots.'
He did as she asked, ever so slowly.
'Now take off my socks.'
He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.
'Now take off my skirt.'
He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.
'Now take off my bra.and pnties'
Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped them to
Then she looked at him and said, 'If you ever wear my clothes into
town again, you're fired.'

What could they do to me next?

as I slept.. Now I keep them hidden in my waistband.
