Paul Oh Paul!

No this ain’t Paul McCartney nor Pope John Paul, it’s Paul the Octy!

Funny, I doubt that I’ve ever heard of you before this day (or yesterday), but you’ve became an over night celebrity when it was made known by the media of your “gift” & your prediction that Spain will be the WC Champ in 2010. Many have threatened to EAT you, I believe many have difficulty digesting the news (Spain winning) too, not because they’re ardent fans of the Oranje team but some people like ME don’t believe in oracles etc.

Such hype, to me, is created to capture the world’s attention towards the WC. Has it been a great one for you so far? With so many favorite teams being kicked out during the earlier stages of the games, some fans had claimed this year’s games have been a farce! Oh well, if it is, the news will come out sooner or later, watch out for controversies after the World Cup! Just wait and see.

Whatever it is, oracle or not, I’ll be happy for Spain if they win their 1st WC. They, as the reigning Euro Champ, deserve it. So, lets paint the town RED, aye!



Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

Knowing when to come in out of the rain; Why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn’t always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame and I’m A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.

If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.


Found this one the web & I thought I should share it with you guys. How far is it TRUE?

To me, it pictures reality….
