If only men would listen...

A man is driving up a steep, narrow mountain road. A woman is driving down the same road.
As they pass each other, the woman leans out of the window and yells "PIG!!"

The man immediately leans out of his window and replies, "COW!!"

They each continue on their way, and as the man rounds the next corner, he crashes into a pig in the middle of the road.

If only men would listen...

I think it's an oldie too. If I ever finish importing all my old articles, I am sure it will turn up in there...

Still some jokes are worth telling again....

Thanks for stopping by,

Well sort of alive. Loved your book. Want to read the next ones straight away.

Did you see my comment linking you and Harry Potter :-)

My theory of a decent read is that I require some internal consistency. In fact, without that, I walk away from a book feeling somehow cheated.... It is fine to have some big alteration to normality as long as the rest of the story remains true to itself. Think about something like 1632 by Eric Flint. The underlying premise of the Assiti shards is far fetched BUT once you allow them, the story flows and is internally consistent (and a great read). The same rule fits the Diskworld (Pratchett) - once you accept the idea of a world on the back of a turtle with its associated physical differences, the stories are consistent. More recently, consider Alien Attitudes (which is a multi-part young adults story just like Harry Potter) - the story stems around an extremely fit young person and her adventures in space which are internally true to themselves.
