Morals

First-year students at Texas A & M's Vet school were attending their first Anatomy class, with a dead pig.

They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a White sheet. The professor started the class by telling them, 'In Veterinary Medicine it is necessary to have two important qualities as a Doctor: The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the Animal body'. For an example, the Professor pulled back the sheet, touched his finger in the mouth of the dead pig, withdrew it and put his Finger in his mouth. 'Go ahead and do the same thing,' he told his students.

The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes. But eventually took turns putting their finger in the mouth of the dead pig and tasted in their mouth.

When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them and said,'The Second most important quality is observation. I touched with my middle Finger and tasted on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention'...

Moral of the story:Life is tough, but it's a lot tougher when you're Stupid....

Valentine's Day Poem


All part of the essence of Valentines.
Some men consider the day a waste,
Lacking in merit and void of taste,
But what's wrong with taking a lady to dine

And wishing a woman happy Valentines?
Our world is chaotic, and full of stress,
A romantic day shouldn't come with duress,
But happy is the man who finds the time

To show some attention to his Valentine.
You do not need jewelry, or flowers, or sweets
To give a lady the romance she needs -
Some thoughtful and tender attention is fine,

And should make the day a happy Valentines.
The essence of Valentines comes from the heart,
But a day for romance is a good place to start,
So make some sweet gestures; it's your turn to shine,

And treat your loved one like she's your Valentine!
