This guy's walking down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so
steep, he can't get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up, "Hey
you, can you help me out?" The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down
in the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along, and the guy shouts up
"Father, I'm down in this hole, can you help me out?" The priest writes out
a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by.
"Hey Joe, it's me, can you help me out?" And the friend jumps in the hole.
Our guy says, "Are you stupid? Now we're both down here." The friend says,
"Yeah, but I've been down here before, and I know the way out.
I love this quote. Sometimes a friend can offer help when professionals struggle to offer the right kind of help.
Another quote used by a few of the Fun Monday participants that I would like to highlight is this quote from Little Shop of Horrors, "Feed me, Seymour." said by the man-eating plant Audrey II to Seymour Krelboin. Daddy D and I grow some exotic plants that produce a large unusual flower that produces a fetid odor. You can read about these plants in this entry on our team blog, Mama Said, Papa Said. This winter one of the plants has produced another stinky but fascinating bloom.
