Time for Humor
I was going to write about Time - is it linear or circular? Then I was going to launch into how a round of golf is circular … you go out and then play, back in, etc. But, 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 invented golf … so that should work.
An Englishman, Irishman, Welshman, Scotsman were captured while fighting in a far-off 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 tune.”
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.
