Lao Tse


A thousand miles begins with a single step

One talks about it first!!

Edward VII, at the time when he was still The Prince of Wales, was subject to a protest when he was about to swallow the old cognac that had just been served to him:

“Your highness! such a nectar! One must first let the amber blonds play around in the crystal. Then one breathes it gently in, religiously.”

Then at last…  (Edward VII drinks it)
No your highness, not yetone talks about it first!”

Coffee wisdom

In a coffee house sit those people who want to be alone but need company to do so.

Dinner for a fly

This is what happens when a fly lands on your food.

    • Flies cannot eat solid food, so to soften it up they vomit on it.
    • Then they stamp the vomit in until it is liquid, usually stamping in a few germs for good measure.
    • Then when it is good and runny they suck it all back again, probably dropping some excrements at the same time.
And then, when they have finished eating, it is your turn!
