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.
