Laura Bush and the Lie Clock

Every once in a while you get a clue. This clue ended up in my email. Every once in a while we need to look away from what we leet types do - read and blog - and pay attention to the media of folks who don't pay much attention to most media. Or in other words, "the common wisdom," a little insight into what the broad general culture believes.

Now, the thing about these email chains is that they are not passive. Anything that causes anyone not laugh or sniffle hits the bit bucket. The fact that this got to me at all proves that it's been approved for distribution hundreds, if not thousands of times.

Were I George Bush, this would scare the crap out of me. But then, if I were George Bush, I probably woudn't realize how stupid I was.

Laura Bush died and went to heaven.

As she stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly
Gates she saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

She asked,
"What are all those clocks for"?

St. Peter answered,
"Those are Lie-Clocks.
Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock.
Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move".

"Oh", said Laura.

"Who's clock is that"?

"That's Mother Teresa's.
The hands have never moved,
indicating that she never told a lie".

"Whose clock is that?"

"That's Abraham Lincoln's clock.
The hands have only moved twice,
telling us that Abe only told 2 lies in his entire life".

"Where's George's clock"?
Laura asked.

"George's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan . . . "
