Many of you had send me mail regarding the "Ancient Temple" mailing. It seems that I mentioned "South Africa" and "Mayan" in the same sentence! I had heard this joke previously, and I typed it in, hoping the rest of you might appreciate it. Wasn't quite sure about whether to make it revolve around a temple, or an artifact, so I made it use the artifact. It didn't come out exactly as I wanted, so I changed it to a temple, but forgot to change "Africa" to "America"! Anyway, about today's mailing, it's supposed to be a true story but.... :) - Roshan _,.-*~'^'~*-.,__,.-*~'^'~*-.,_ Karen, a Midwestern housewife, took her first trip to Las Vegas last year. She had done very well playing the slot machines, winning a bucket full of quarters. Karen needed a break and she left the casino heading toward the elevators, taking her bucket with her. She steps into the elevator and before the doors shut, four beefy, leather-clad African-American men step in. Karen (never having spent much time with African Americans) clutches her bucket close to her chest. One of the men says, "Hit the floor, lady," and she does: quarters fly everywhere. The men bust up laughing and they help Karen collect her winnings. One of the men explains that he meant for her to select her floor. They help her collect her quarters and the elevator arrives at her floor. She leaves embarrassed, and the men are still laughing. Later that evening, a dozen roses are delivered to Karen's room. There is a one hundred dollar bill attached to each rose. The note attached read: "Thank you for the best laugh I've had in years! Eddie Murphy." Thanks to Ecthelion Krethlin for this contribution.
