snow_white_applePinocchio, Snow White, and Superman are out for a stroll in town one day.  As they walk, they come across a sign:

“Beauty contest to find the most beautiful woman in the world.”

“I am entering,” said Snow White.  After half an hour she comes out and they ask her, “Well, how’d ya do?”

” First Place ,” said Snow White.

“Contest to find the strongest man in the world.”

“I’m entering,” says Superman.  After half an hour he returns and they ask him, “How did you make out?”

First Place ,” answers Superman. “Did you ever doubt it?”

“Contest!

Who is the greatest liar in the world?”

Pinocchio enters.

After half an hour he returns with tears in his eyes.

“What happened?” they asked.

“Who the ^&$% is OSCAR PISTORIOUS?”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Ha ha! Oh yes, Oscar definitely wins that prize. Have a great Saturday, Nancy!

Thanks, Jill. You too.

BTW: I didn’t win the Lobster, but the contest was a fun diversion. Thanks for your support.

Jill Weatherholt - September 20, 2014

Well, obviously the contest was rigged…you had my vote all the way! I hope you enjoy a lobster dinner anyway.
Thanks for the update.

nrhatch - September 20, 2014

Thanks! We’re probably overdue for a lobster dinner.

Good one! Fill in the blank with our villain du jour!

nrhatch - September 20, 2014

It’s not surprising we are such good liars by the time we reach adulthood ~> we are socialized to say what people want to HEAR rather than what we really THINK.

And the truth just gets lost in the shuffle.

3. Pix Under the Oaks - September 20, 2014

Ha! Yep, Oscar I do believe wins first place!

nrhatch - September 20, 2014

Folks around the globe are waiting to see what sort of sentence he’ll receive come sentencing in October.

I wonder if he’s got a GET OUT OF JAIL free card on his person.

granny1947 - September 20, 2014

I like to think he will get a good stiff sentence but money talks!

nrhatch - September 20, 2014

Time will tell. Thanks for the share, Kathy ~ a more serious joke than most I’ve shared, but I got a kick out of Pinocchio’s reaction to NOT being the BIGGEST liar in the land.

Oscar Pistorious is small potatoes when compared to President Obama, the Deceiver in Chief! Does anyone believe anything that man says about anything, even his most dedicated supporters, who go along with every deception?

nrhatch - September 20, 2014

How can you tell a politician is lying? . . . His lips are moving.

The judge had a very difficult task with that one. She would have been criticised no matter what her judgement.

nrhatch - September 20, 2014

At one point, shortly before I stopped practicing law, I considered seeking a judicial appointment. Then I came to my senses ~ it tends to be a rather thankless position.

I often thought that a Judge has a very lonely road to travel.

nrhatch - September 21, 2014

Perhaps. There is a loss of freedom to espouse on issues that might come before your bench. And less freedom to choose friends. And you must deal with a stream of people who sidle up with insincere smiles hoping for small favors. And . . . I decided it wasn’t worth it.

Grannymar - September 21, 2014

My friend, the one who first gave me the handle ‘grannymar’, made that decision for the very same reasons.

nrhatch - September 21, 2014

Good for your friend, GM. It’s been 17 years since I made the decision to make a clean break with the legal profession . . . No Regrets!

Poor Pinocchio has lots of competition these days. Perhaps he should find another area of expertise! 😛

nrhatch - September 23, 2014

You’ve got a point. Wish politicians noses grew when they lied ~ we’d be in a better position to judge their lack of trustworthiness.

8. Three Well Beings - September 26, 2014

Oh my goodness. I didn’t see that punchline! This is a good one. This case has fascinated me. I only heard it over the radio, but I’m sure I sensed his nose growing!

nrhatch - September 26, 2014

Many of us are “good liars” by the time we reach adulthood, after a lifetime of being coached, admonished, and socialized to say what people want to HEAR rather than what we really THINK.

Political correctness and manners brush the truth under the rug.
