...which reminds me of something that actually happened to me the other day.

I was visiting with a vendor, discussing our project, when the subject of salaries came up. Not wanting to quote actual numbers, we sort of danced around the issue, until someone said that the vendor paid his engineers "peanuts." Someone else said that I wanted to see of their "peanuts" were bigger than my "peanuts." Said I might have "peanuts-envy."





Meeting adjourned.

Two salesmen visited an older lady trying to sell her their product. She offered them a cup of coffee. They said they would enjoy a cup.

While she was in the kitchen, they tasted some of the peanuts that were in a bowl on the coffee table. They were so good, they ended up eating all of them.

When the lady returned with their coffee, they were very apologetic. They told her the peanuts were so good, they just couldn't stop eating them.

She said that it was OK. She only liked the chocolate covering anyway.

Once upon a time, in a nice little forest, there lived
an orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. A surprising
coincidence was that both were blind from birth One
day, the bunny was hopping through the forest, and the
snake was slithering through the forest, when the
bunny tripped over the snake and fell down.
This, of course, knocked the snake about quite a bit.

"Oh, my," said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I
didn't, mean to hurt you I've been blind since birth;
so, I can't see where I'm going. In fact, since I'm
also an orphan, I don't even know what I am."
"It's quite okay," replied the snake. "Actually, my
story is much the same as yours. I, too, have been
blind since birth, and also never knew my mother."

"Tell you what, maybe I could kinda slither over you,
and figure out what you are, so at least you'll have
that going for you." "Oh, that would be wonderful,"
replied the bunny.

So the snake slithered all over the bunny, and said,
"Well, you're covered with soft fur; you have really
long ears; your nose twitches; and you have a soft
cottony tail. I'd say that you must be a bunny."

" Oh, thank you! Thank you," cried the bunny in
obvious excitement. "Maybe I could feel you with my
paw, and help you the same way you've helped me."

So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked,
"Well, you're scaly and slimy, and you have a forked
tongue, no backbone and no balls. I'd say you must be
either a lawyer or a politician."

I'm sure we have many visitors and I know we have members who are attorneys. Let's not insult them.

Then ya prolly shouldn't pick on engineers, either. I'm certain that we might have a few of those visiting occasionally.

Being insulted is part of being a lawyer. You gotta take the bad with the good, or should that be visa versa?
