Finding Intelligent Life on Mars

 It was a celebratory mood for the boys at NASA; they had just made the scientific achievement of a lifetime.

As they were uncorking a bottle of champagne, the head of the project, Dr. Wilson, asked everyone to be quiet as he was receiving a congratulatory phone call from the President of the United States.

He picked up a special red phone.

"Mr. President," said Dr. Wilson, grinning broadly, "after twelve years of difficult research and spending billions of dollars, we have finally found intelligent life on Mars."

He listened for a second, and his smile gradually disappeared, replaced by a frown.

He said, "But that's impossible... we could never do it... yes Mr. President," and hung up the phone. He then addressed the crowd of scientists staring at him curiously.

"I have some bad news," he said, "the President said that now that we've found intelligent life on Mars... he wants us to try to find it in Congress."

Katy Perry on Prayer and Politics

Katy Perry talked about her encounter with the Almighty when she was 11 years old.  "I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?’… God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually."

Katy also declared that she won Wisconsin for Obama.  Definitely she shows political prowess as a kingmaker.  Maybe next time she can win Alabama for the Democrats!

Anyway, she makes a good case for the efficacy of prayer.
