Words of Wit:

A while back, I was standing around the shop where I used to work, talking with a few of the guys, when a small bird flew down onto the bumper of a new Bentley and began harvesting bugs out of the grille. I remarked that the bird was very smart, pointing out his ability to find a free lunch in today's economy.

One of the younger guys remarked, "If that bird's so smart, let's see him pop the hood and work on the engine."

After the chuckles subsided, I told the young man that the very fact the bird doesn't raise the hood is an indication of his advanced level of intelligence.

When asked to explain, I replied, "I have learned in 20+ years of working on cars that there are only two people in the automotive industry that make any real money; The owner of the dealership and the tool man."

So the next time you see a bird eating bugs out of the grille, you may see him differently....

so long and thanks for all the fish... Douglas Adams reporting on the second most intelligent life on earth as they left before it got destroyed, the Dolphins.
the first most intelligent life on earth of course being the lab mice that were testing us stupid humans by reacting to different methods of dying during experiments...
