The sad thing is most of these could be applied to the Sox.

This is pretty mindblowing, actually...
20 major events that have occurred since the Chicago Cubs last laid
claim to a World Series Championship:
1. Radio was invented; Cubs fans got to hear their team lose.
2.TV was invented; Cubs fans got to see their team lose.
3. Baseball added 14 teams; Cubs fans get to see and hear their team
lose to more clubs.
4. George Burns celebrated his 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th,70th,
80th, 90th and 100th birthdays.
5. Haley's comet passed Earth - twice.
6. Harry Caray was born....and died. Incredible, but true.
7. The NBA, NHL and NFL were formed, and Chicago teams won championship
in each league.
8. Man landed on the moon, as have several home runs given up by Cubs
pitchers.
9. Sixteen U.S. presidents were elected.
10. There were 11 amendments added to the Constitution.
11.Prohibition was created and repealed.
12. The Titanic was built, set sail, sank, was discovered and became
the subject of major motion pictures, the latest giving Cubs fanshope
that something that finishes on the bottom can come out on top.
13. Wrigley Field was built and becomes the oldest park in the National
League.
14. Flag poles were erected on Wrigley Field roof to hold all of the
team's future World Series pennants. Those flag poles have since rusted
and been taken down.
15. A combination of 40 Summer and Winter Olympics have been held.
16.Thirteen baseball players have won the Triple Crown; several thanked
Cubs pitchers.
17. Bell-bottoms came in style, went out of style and came back in
style; disco did the same.
18. The Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox and
FloridA Marlins have all won the World Series.
19. The Cubs played 14,153 regular-season games; they lost the majority
of them.
20. Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Oklahoma and New Mexico were admitted to
the Union.

I've seen that before but it's still pretty funny. I still like this classic:

What did Jesus say to the Cubs last time he was on Earth?
"Don't do anything til I get back."
