While daydreaming at work earlier today, I remembered the punchline to a joke that Rusty the T.A. told before one of my computer science classes when I was a college sophomore.
(No, I have absolutely no idea what brought that to mind.)
Thanks to a little google-fu, I now proudly present the rest of the joke…
Once in a land far, far away there lived a group of people called Trids. The Trids were happy except for the huge ogre that lived on the mountain. The ogre would periodically terrorize the Trids.
The Trids tired of the ogre and sought to reason with him. They thought one of their religious leaders would be a good intermediary. So a group of Trids and their minister went up the mountain and before they could even say one word the ogre kicked them down the mountain. Not being dismayed the Trids thought that maybe the ogre was Catholic, so they sent another delegation, this time led by the local priest. But alas, as they approached the ogre he once again kicked them all down the mountain.
The Trids were upset until they thought that perhaps the ogre was Jewish. Unfortunately, no Trids were Jewish, so they wrote to the people of another land and asked them to send a Rabbi to help them with the ogre. The Rabbi arrived and led a delegation of Trids up the mountain. The ogre saw them coming and kicked all of them, except for the Rabbi, down the mountain. The Rabbi, having been told of the previous expeditions, wondered why he alone had not been kicked down the mountain, so he asked the ogre. The ogre laughed and replied:
“Silly Rabbi, kicks are for Trids!”
What’s in the box? Another box! (Sorry, private joke. )

Ways To Tell That Your Pet Cat Hasn’t Adjusted to Daylight Savings Yet:
- When you get up he stares blearily at you like, “WTF, dude?!? It’s too early to get up now.” Then he sleeps an extra hour while you get ready for work.
- He sleeps 20 hours a day. (Wait, scratch that… That’s normal for a cat. )
- Instead of waiting for you after work at the foot of the door (literally, I usually have to push him aside to get in), he looks embarrassed while running in from the other room to greet you.
(Confession… I was going to do a “Top 5” but couldn’t think of two more. )
