Jack’s Winning Words 4/1/16
“You cannot touch your lower lip with your tongue.” (Physical Oddity) Have you ever seen a contortionist, someone who has extreme flexibility? 400# Matt is able to touch both cheeks at once with the soles of his feet. About the best that most of us can do is open our mouth and stick our foot in it. Some can talk out of both sides of their mouth at once. BTW, for those of you who read the quote and tried to touch your lip with your tongue…April Fool! ;-) Jack
FROM LG IN MICHIGAN: Got me!====JACK: You're #1; you're #1!
FROM TARMART REV: Always a fool for a good joke or two, especially on April 1st!!====JACK: Is your "funny bone" in your elbow or does it rest on top of your spine?
FROM TL: You got me!====JACK: Did you pass "anatomy" when you were in school?
FROM HONEST JOHN: I want to know who this guy Physical Oddity is? Sounds like he might be running for Prez!====JACK: It appears as though there's more than one who can speak out of both sides of the mouth at once.

FROM LBP IN PLYMOUTH: Ack! You got me! I was trying to figure out what I was missing... Tongue to lip. Yep. Top of tongue to lip? Nope can do that too. Hmmm. Kept figuring as I read. ... Glad I read to the bottom before emailing for clarification!
I fooled V this morning by telling her that the principal called and said that the last day of spring break was cancelled and she had to get ready for school today. I thought for sure she'd call me on it because she's been planning her April fools gag for weeks. But the poor girl cried! Oh my. Making me stick out my tongue was a much better trick.
FROM DAZ IN COLORADO: Glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humor.====JACK: It helps to have a sense of humor when it comes to politics. Every candidate is fair game...even dear old Abe. I'm sure you have some stories about how he wasn't always liked.
FROM DM IN LIV: LOL! Got me!====JACK: I like it when people respond, LOL, to what I think is funny. Sometimes we take life too seriously.

I'll bet you can't do it.====RJP: Actually my daughter in law who is a ballet teacher and dancer can. When she was 8 months pregnant she could put her legs behind her head. Today I am reminded of our first dog who was born April 1st 1962. We named him Quince after Quince the Joiner who is one of the fools in A Midsummer Nights Dream.====JACK: Testing your knowledge....Who was called, The Perfect Fool? (No! It isn't one of the current candidates.)
FROM BLAZING OAKS: Well, I thought, "who sez"? I knew I could; was that Odd?! HA! With all the kiddies grown up and long gone, I wasn't even thinking of "April Fool"!
