First, a retro bumper sticker from the 1970’s:

SORRY, I DON’T DATE OUTSIDE MY SPECIES

Secondly, an off-the-wall NY Yankee headline:

A-Rod Goes Deep, Wang Hurt.

Thirdly, a quote all Americans should read and remember:

“My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular.”

Adlai Stevenson

And last but not least a memorable limerick about limericks:

The limerick’s an art form complex,

Whose contents run chiefly to sex.

It’s famous for virgins

And masculine urgings,

And vulgar, erotic effects.

To believe everything is to be an imbecile.

To deny everything is to be a fool.”

Charles Nodier 1844

He was born at Besançon in France, near the border with Switzerland. His father, on the outbreak of the French Revolution, was appointed mayor of Besançon and consequently chief police magistrate. Charles was an influential French author and librarian who introduced a younger generation of Romanticists to the conte fantastique, gothic literature, and vampire tales. His dream related writings influenced many later authors.

Thomas Henry Huxley (4 May 1825 – 29 June 1895) was an English biologist and anthropologist specializing in comparative anatomy.

After comparing Archaeopteryx with Compsognathus, he concluded that birds evolved from small carnivorous dinosaurs, a theory widely accepted today.
