    Hmmm...okay...maybe they were the first cartoon couple? Hahaha...I really have no idea. This was just one of those funny emails I got!
    And here's another:

    Points to Ponder:

    - Why in America do we have a general in charge of the post office, and a
    secretary in charge of defense?

    - They say that love makes the world go around, but then so does a good
    swallow of tobacco juice.

    - Sign seen on a plastic surgeon's window: "Come in and pick your nose!"

    - You know you are a college student when you collect Taco Bell sauce to
    use as "salsa" on your chips and frozen burritos.

    - I was thinking about how the status symbols of today is those pagers
    that everyone has clipped on. I can't afford one so I'm wearing my garage
    door opener.

    - You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people
    didn't like me anyway.

    - I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on
    beer cans!

    - You know when people see a cat's litter box, they always say, "Oh,have
    you got a cat?" Just once I wanted to say, "No, it's for company!"

    - Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case
    of an emergency. I think you should write . . . A good doctor!

    - Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we
    supposed to do . . . write to these men? Why don't they just put their
    pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen could look for them while
    they delivered the mail?

    - I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more
    as they get older then it dawned on me . . . they were cramming for their
    finals. Or looking for loopholes.
