    NASAs SECRET IS OUT:

    There's a bunch of people who are convinced that the appropriate greeting when meeting a space alien is "Gnorts."

    Why "Gnorts", you ask?

    Simple: In the heavily-orchestrated, gov't-disinformation-rich Apollo Moon landing program, what was the name the gov't used to refer to the first man who landed on the Moon?

    "Neil Armstrong."

    Yeah, right, as if that is his real name.

    Turns out it was in code. Backwards, it is:

    "Gnorts, Mr. Alien!"

    Coincidence? I think not!

    ----------

    I've been to the patent office trying to register some of my inventions. I went to the main desk to sign in and the lady at the desk had a form that had to be filled out. She wrote down my personal information and then asked me what I had invented.

    I said, "A folding bottle."

    She said, "OK, what do you call it...?"

    "A Fottle," I replied.

    "What else do you have?" she asked.

    "A folding carton."

    "And, what do you call it...?"

    "A Farton."

    She snickered, saying, "Those are silly names for products and one of them even sounds kind of crude."

    I was so upset by her comment that I grabbed the form and left the office without even telling her about my folding bucket...

    "The Importance of Correct Punctuation":

    I've been told it is now considered correct to eliminate the comma after an item that is before the 'and'.

    The best famous example of the necessity of the serial comma was in a dedication to a book:

    This book is dedicated to my parents, Ayn Rand and God.

    Now there's a kid with an attitude!
