A Rabbi walked into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder.  "Hey, man, where'd
you get that thing"
"Oh, said the PARROT.  I got him in New York.  They have hundreds of them

> The inhabitants of Egypt were called mummies. They lived in the Sarah

> The renaissance was an age in which more individuals felt the value

> Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100-foot clipper.

> The greatest writer of the renaissance was William Shakespeare.
> never made much money and is famous only because of his plays. He

> Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He wrote

> Indians, who came down the hill rolling their war hoops before them.

> Delegates from the original 13 states formed the Contented Congress.

> Meanwhile in Europe, the enlightenment was a reasonable time. Voltaire

> Bach was the most famous composer in the world, and so was Handel.
