There is a rumor
 that wit and humor
will soothe the tensions of the coming year.
Well if that is the case
there is an ace
who can start with the humor right here!

Only in America can an American
live in his own nation
and give tribute to Don King and to Yogi Berra
in the same conversation!

For only in America can an ex con by the name of Don
make $millions by putting fighters in a ring;
and a witty fogey by the name of Yogy occasionally say
a somewhat thoughtful thing
as in "it is not over until it is over"
or was it "...until the fat lady does sing"?
or perhaps a drunk is still drunk until he is sober
or some such equivalent thing.

The Secret Of Advertising

Every American consumer
needs a little humor
to whet his appetite.
Show him an ad that is funny
and he will spend all his money
to buy everything in sight.

A noun is the name of a person, place or thing.
Your sound will be good if you can sing.
A clown will tickle your funny bone
And a touchdown will put the ball in the end zone.

A sequence of objects may be said to be equal
if each one is equivalent to its sequel.
For droplets that fall in a train
may sometimes be described as rain.
A plane wave train
is a sequence of waves
that approximates the way
that the microscopic world behaves.

Just as there are billions
of cubic feet of water
in the depths of the sea
under the light of the moon.
One can virtually see
billions of water molecules
from a cup of tea
when held in a teaspoon.

Sometimes a great intellectual principality
can be built upon a seeming triviality.
So sometimes being trivial in your pursuit
can make you non - trivially intellectually astute.
