Mo Hawg - Week 4

Day 1.
Mo’s Robert Louis Stevenson Wisdom for Today: No man is useless while he has a friend.
   Did you hear about the snail that went into an automobile dealership.  The snail asked the salesman if the dealership had a red convertible.  The salesman says, “Yes, we do.”
   The snail says, “I will buy a red convertible from you, but you have to have a big ‘S’ painted on both car doors.”
   The salesman thinks about it for a few moments.  It seems like an odd request, but it is an expensive red convertible and he needs to sell a car.  So, after a little time, he says agrees to have a big red “S” painted on both doors.
    The next week, the car is ready and the snail comes to pick up the new red convertible.  The salesman is still curious about the “S” on each door, so he asks, “Why did you want those “S’s” painted on your car doors?”
   The snail replies, “When I drive by, I want everyone to say, (Be warned…it’s coming now)… ‘Look at that ‘S’ car go!’”

Day 2.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: We all learned in school that Rome, Italy was originally built on seven hills.  Can you name them?
   Of course, Mo can!
   The “Seven Hills of Rome” are: Viminal, Quirinal, Palatine, Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline and Esquiline!

   Mo’s Other Trivia Question for Today: Do you enjoy yellow rice?  Where does that yellow color come from?  What spice is that? 
   Mo knows…and will give you a hint today.  The source of the yellow color comes from a flower very popular in Cornwall.  Did that help?
  The flower is the crocus and it takes MANY pounds of pollen from the center to make just a tiny bit of saffron.  It is said to be the most expensive spice in the world.

   Mo’s Jean Racine Wisdom for Today: Happiness seems made to be shared.

Day 3.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: Has the famous Hollywood sign ever been changed to read something else?
   Mo knows.
   The sign overlooking Hollywood, California was changed – in honor of the visit of Pope John Paul II to southern California in 1987.  What did it say?
   The sign read “Holywood.”

   Mo’s Samuel Johnson Wisdom for Today: If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone.  A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.

   Mo’s Really Bad Riddle for Today: What did Mrs. Flea say to Mr. Flea as they were leaving to go to the movies?
   “Shall we walk, or take the dog?”

Day 4.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: Here’s one I’ll bet nobody but Mo knows!  The voice on American Online that says things like “Goodbye,” “File’s done,” “You’ve got mail,” “Welcome” and more belongs to what person?
   Mo really knows. 
   That voice that is familiar to everyone is the voice of professional voice-over artist Elwood Edwards!
   It really is!

   Mo’s George Eliot Wisdom for Today: No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence.

   Mo’s Science Fiction Riddle for Today: What would you call it if you crossed a Jedi knight with a toad frog?
   (Official pun warning here!)  You’d get “Star Warts.”

Day 5.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: Most everyone knows that President Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin in Kentucky.  Do you know the name of the farm?
   Don’t know?  Mo knows!
   President Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin in Kentucky on Sinking Spring Farm!

   Mo’s George Eliot Wisdom for Today: Perhaps the most delightful friendships are those in which there is much agreement, must disputation, and yet more personal liking.

   Mary J. from Riverside sent us a good/bad story.  It’s great if you love puns…
   Mary’s story: A man was driving down a lonely country road down by Hartsfield last winter when it started raining and sleeting.  The windows in the truck fogged up, and the wiper blades were so worn that they soon just fell apart and the man could not see out of the front of his truck anymore.  He had to stop.  He got out and started turning over logs and rocks to see what he could find.  He found two frozen snakes.  He straightened them out and stuck them flat upon what was left of his blades and they worked just fine.
   Haven’t you ever heard of “wind-chilled vipers?”
