* A man loved to have a big cup of coffee on his way to work in the morning so he went out of his way to buy packages of the extra large Styrofoam cups for his daily commute. One morning he could don’t find any of them and asked his wife what had become of them. She explained she had heard that decomposing Styrofoam in landfills was going to ruin the ozone layer and she felt she had to do something to stop it. So she threw the cups in the garbage.
* Years ago my youngest daughter asked, “Daddy where do clouds come from”? Trying to think of an analogy I pointed to the coffee pot sitting on the stove. “Pretend that the water in the coffee pot is the ocean, and the burner is like the sun. The sun warms the ocean, it creates a mist of water, and then clouds form”. She seemed to understand. At breakfast a few days later she suddenly looked up at me and said, “Dad, I was just wondering. What happens to the clouds if everybody stops drinking coffee”?
@ Wally & Sven go on a fishing trip to Canada and come back with only three fish. Sven says, “The way I figure it, each one of fish cost us $400”” Wally says, “Well, at that price it’s a good thing we didn’t catch any more than we did.”
