Art and Money::: “Money. It is a simple fact of everyday life, as well as, a fundamental principal of our social, political, and economic order. It is a medium of exchange, an index and store of value, and a universal equivalent into which most anything can dissolve. It connects, defines, and divides nations. It is pocket change and dead presidents. It is the key to happiness and the root of all evil. It has no intrinsic value apart from what we’ve given it. Money is an idea, a social contract, and one that depends on frequently-tested collective emotional states like trust, faith, and confidence.” Read More

LookOut Mountain,Rock City, and a Joke

MQTlogoa In a previous post/comment June infers I have been picking on women in my joke selection. The following joke should set the record straight and I’ll throw in a few photos of Rock City on Lookout Mountain in Georgia to boot.

Brain Transplant::::

DSC_0090

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their family member lay gravely ill.

DSC_0105

Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber. I’m afraid I’m the bearer of bad news,’ he said as he surveyed the worried faces. ‘The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.

DSC_0092

It’s an experimental procedure, semi-risky and you will have to pay for the brain yourselves.’

DSC_0102

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great length of time, someone asked, ‘Well, how much does a brain cost?’

DSC_0110 The Doctor quickly responded, ‘25,000 for a male brain, and 3,000 for a female brain.’

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

A man, unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, ‘Why is the male brain so much more?’

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and said to the entire group, ‘It’s just standard pricing procedure.

DSC_0169

We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they’ve actually been used.’
