Michael Sneed, the political/business/gossip writer for the Sun-Times, writes in her Sunday Column (http://www.suntimes.com/output/sneed/cst-nws-sneed16.html) that the Tribune company is actively shopping the Cubs to "consortiums" who are interesting in buying.

Here's a quote WSIers will appreciate:

*Is the formidable Tower of Truth, a k a the cost-cutting Tribune Co., responding to a suggestion in a recent Wall Street Journal article?

Gotta love that "Tower of Truth" line!

Well the Cubs have been on the market for about half year now. I know someone who worked up some reports for their boss on purchasing the Cubs.

And thank you for that. I recall once picking up her column and seeing an article that started "Journalists like us...." Best laugh I'd had in a while.

Guffaw! The Cubs aren't for sale! Dennis Fitzsimmons denied the rumors for everyone on WGN radio just last week!

"How can you tell when I'm lying? My lips move!"

Gosh, you don't suppose it was really just the kiss of death Denny was laying on the Cubs with the dreaded vote of confidence, do you?

Who would the consortium of individuals be? Prominent Chicago businessmen like Andy McKenna, Pat Ryan, etc.?

I heard the Cubs might be sold to a group of wealthy Phillipino businessmen. They're planning on moving them to their capital city and renaming them the Manilla Folders.:cool:





Thank you. I'll be here all week.

A doctor says to a man "You want to improve your love life? You need to get some exercise. Run ten miles a day." Two weeks later, the man called the doctor. The doctor says "How is your love life since you have been running?" "I don't know, I'm 140 miles away!"

Man walks into a doctors office wiggling his elbow madly. He looks at the doctor and says, "Doc, it hurts when I do this."

So the doctor looks at the man and says, "Don't do that."

A guy complains of a headache. Another guy says "Do what I do. I put my head on my wife's bosom, and the headache goes away." The next day, the man says, "Did you do what I told you to?" "Yes, I sure did. By the way, you have a nice house!"

Little Johnny is saying his prayers one night. He says, "God Bless Mommy and Daddy and please keep Uncle Frank safe now that he is coming to live with you."

The next day Uncle Frank drops dead from a heartattack.

The parents are concerned but write it off to a fluke.

A few weeks later little Johnny is saying his prayers and says, "God bless Mommy and Daddy and please keep Gramma Mary safe now that she is coming to live with you."

The next day Gramma Mary gets hit by a bus and dies.

So the parents start monitoring Little Johnny's prayers, but for months nothing happens. Then one night he says, "God bless Mommy and please keep Daddy safe now that he is coming to live with you."

The parents are completely freaked out and the next day comes with tears and frantic hugs. The father leaves for work but has a pretty uneventful day and comes home. He says, "Honey, it was incredibly stressful, but nothing even remotely dangerous happened. How was your day?"

The wife replies, "Awful. Right after you left, I opened up the front door and there was the mailman dead on the front porch."

Lemme tell you something I don't get no respect. None at all...never did. Even when I was a kid, I gotta tell ya!

One Christmas I ask my dad for a nice Christmas gift...I came from a poor family, we never had much of anything...but this Christmas my dad went out and got me a nice gift. He wrapped it up and put it under our small tree.

Christmas Day comes and I open the box. It's a bow and arrow set.

I'm so happy.

Then Dad gives me one other gift......

(pause...)

It's a t- shirt with a bullseye on the back!

A man calls a lawyer's office. The phone is answered "Schwartz, Schwartz, Schwartz and Schwartz." The man says, "Let me talk to Mr. Schwartz." "I'm sorry, he's on vacation." "Then let me talk to Mr. Schwartz." "He's on a big case, not available for a week." "Then let me talk to Mr. Schwartz." "He's playing golf today." "Okay, then, let me talk to Mr. Schwartz." "Speaking."

And one more before turning in...

Two guys in a health club, one is putting on pantyhose. "Since when do you wear pantyhose?" "Since my wife found it in the glove compartment!"

I've had a lot of jobs in my life...the problem is I keep losing them.

My last job was at the airport.

I parked the airplanes.

Then I got fired.

I couldn't remember where I parked them.

---------------

I've got a map of the U.S. at my house.

It's unique.

At the bottom it says, 'scale...one mile = one mile.'

How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?

Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?

What the difference between a man from from Wisconsin and a wedge of cheese?















One's smelly, crumbly and covered in mold and the other goes well with crackers.

NB Please note the correct usage of grammar in the previous sentence.:D:

Little Billy was staying at grandma's house. He was out playing but then came in and asked his grandmother, "What to you call it when you have two people in bed on top of each other?"

Grandma was flustered to say the least but she decided to tell him the truth. She said, "It's called sexual intercourse."

Billy said okay and ran out to play again.

A few minutes later he came running back into the house and said, "It's called bunk beds, and Tommy's mother wants to talk with you."

(Thanks to Larry Lujack for that one.)

Two women die at around the same time and meet in heaven. One says to the other "how did you die?"

"I froze to death." the other woman replied.

"How awful!" the first woman exclaimed.

"Not really" said the second woman. "I didn't feel a thing. It actually just felt like I was going to sleep. How did you die?"

The first woman said "I came home early from work today. I was convinced that my husband was cheating and I wanted to catch him. He was there alone and said no one else was there. I was convinced he was lying, so I searched everywhere. Under the bed, in the closet, in the bathroom, in the garage, in the basement. Finally I got so stressed and frantic that I died of a heart attack. And here I am."

"Really?" the second woman replied. "Well, you should've looked in the freezer. Then we'd both still be alive."
