*UNC is the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Specializing in a wide range of degree programs including: B.A. A.H.F.(Advanced Hamburger Flipping), N.U.T., A.P.E., B.R.C. (Bar Room Conversations), etc. Institution was founded in 1898 for sons/daughters of local Chapel Still politicians that were unable to qualify for the more prestigious institutions of higher learning such as Duke, Wake Forest, and N.C. State.
The customer asked if the roast beef was rare. Prior to read the waitress reply, I opened a dictionary and looked what do the words roast, beef and rare meant.
Unfortunately, my actions didn't bear any humor but just informed that I live in not English talking country.
However, you see my comment on a page of "Thought & Humor" and thus question yourself where the thought or the humor here is. And that's the greatest humor of itself. Just have a look.
People are used to think “what's that?” “Why was this said?” not by hearing their neighbor, but as they read something titled as Humor & Thought. Where is the thought there? Is it the Humor? People question themselves then.
Thus we arrived to the crucial part of our life, to the need of application of what was received by us (the application of theory to practice) and I shift to myself again... However, I will end here my comments, because the further report would be of no use to anyone of you. The application of theory to practice strictly demands the personal response from each of us and knows no substitutions.
In case you still want to hear my musings, you are hearty welcomed to my blog. You will find there as my thoughts as the artworks, and, maybe, we will put our emotions to practice, will have the reciprocal links with each other. Just click on http://captains-ridge.blogspot.com/ Till then, my dear.
