Time for Humor
I was going to write about Time. Is it linear or circular? Then launch into how a round of golf is circular – you go out and then play back in, etc. And the more I thought about it, the less I wanted to write about it.
I’m more in the mood for some humor than a heavy dose of philosophy about Time. So how about a Scottish joke? Scots were the inventors of golf … so that should work.
An Englishman, Irishman, Welshman, Scotsman were captured
while fighting in a far-off foreign land, and the leader
of the captors said: “we’re going to line you up in front
of a firing squad and shoot you all in turn. But first,
you each can make a final wish.”
The Englishman says: “I’d like to hear God Save The
Queen just one more time to remind me of the auld
country, played by the London All Boys Choir. With
Morris Dancers Dancing to the tune.”
The Irishman says: “I’d like to hear Danny Boy just one more
time to remind me of the auld country, sung in the style of
Daniel O’Donnell, with Riverdance dancers skipping gaily to
The Welshman says: “I’d like to hear Men Of Harlech just
one more time to remind me of the auld country, sung as
if by the Aberavon Male Voice Choir.”
The Scotsman says: “I’d like to be shot first.”
That’s it … humor can be a pretty good use of Time.
