Bar Stool Philosophy

Oh, them crazy internet forwards — but this one has the value of being funny. This showed up in my email this morning and being the man of the people that I am, I share, because I care. Enjoy:

— Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

— If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.

— We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

— War does not determine who is right, only who is left.

— Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

— Evening news is where they begin with “Good evening” and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.

— To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

— I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted pay cheques.

— A bank is a place that will lend you money, if you can prove that you don’t need it.

— Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says “If an emergency, notify:” I put “DOCTOR”.

— I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

— I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with “Guess” on it, so I said “Implants?”

— Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
