Healthier soup?

Not exactly. Turns out you can't believe what's on the front of the label - what catches your eye (and your wallet) - you need to read the fine print on the back. And that's a totally different story!

Little girl on a plane

A congressman was seated next to a little girl on the airplane.. As the plane took off, he turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the total stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?'

'Oh, I don't know,' said the congressman. 'How about global warming or universal health care', and he smiles smugly.

'OK, ' she said. 'Those could be interesting topics. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?'

The legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence , thinks about it and says, 'Hmmm, I have no idea.'

To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming or universal health care when you don't know shit?

"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence"

Or, remember where there used to be silence. Rarer and rarer.
