The "Sturbridge Village" Insurance Agency.

INSURANCE AGENT: "So, if you'll just fax me back that paperwork I'll get right on it."

ME: "Fax? Do you mind if I finish churning the butter first?"

INSURANCE AGENT: "I don't know what you mean."

ME: "Do people still churn butter?"

INSURANCE AGENT: "You're confusing me."

ME: "Do people still really fax?"


ME: "Thank you."

He probably thought he'd caught you, you know, otherwise occupied. Nudge, nudge.

Thank-you for the new post. The old, rancid meat picture was making me queasy.

Let me tell you how it will be
It's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the faxman...

You mean he heard a pound-pound-pounding noise and maybe caught a whiff of old, rancid meat?

Fax you *Back* paperwork?

Like... he faxed you a paper and then said, "Ok, I'll need that back... can you send it?"

Happy birthday Theodore Van Kirk (last surviving crewmember (navigator) of the Enola Gay) born Feb 27 1921:

From Wikipedia:
Under the same circumstances -- and the key words are 'the same circumstances' -- yes, I would do it again. We were in a war for five years. We were fighting an enemy that had a reputation for never surrendering, never accepting defeat. It's really hard to talk about morality and war in the same sentence. In a war, there are so many questionable things done. Where was the morality in the bombing of Coventry, or the bombing of Dresden, or the Bataan death march, or the Rape of Nanking, or the bombing of Pearl Harbor? I believe that when you're in a war, a nation must have the courage to do what it must to win the war with a minimum loss of lives.
