    @ MPeters from yesterday

    “Eye halve a spelling chequer
    It came with my pea sea…”

    I like that. Thanks.

    I find today’s strip lacking.

    The below illustrates how politicians in all countries play both sides and sound plausible arguing for or against any particular issue.

    A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey.

    “If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I’m against it.”

    “But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I’m for it.

    “This is my firm position, and I will not compromise!”

    I can not remember a time when I coukd actually follow a politicians speech. It’s always structered to sound like something but I just cannot figure out what.

    The Bookkeeper has an interest in believing that the Fink would do such a thing… because he will claim the same treatment for himself at the first opportunity.

    The Wizard discovered polyjuice potion? I didn’t know there was another potion to counteract it. It usually just wears off after a while.

    The Deaf Italian Bookkeeper
    A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated
    him out of $10,000,000.00.

    His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing and would
    therefore never have to testify in court.

    When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about the missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer, who knows sign language.

    The Godfather tells the lawyer, “Ask him where the money is.”

    The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, “Where’s the money?”

    Guido signs back, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

    The lawyer tells the Godfather, “He says he doesn’t know what you are
    talking about.”

    The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido’s head and says,

    “Ask him again or I’ll kill him!”

    The lawyer signs to Guido, “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”

    Guido trembles and signs back, “OK! You win! The money is in a brown
    briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno’s house.”

    The Godfather asks the lawyer, “What did he say?”

    The lawyer replies, “He says you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”

    I can’t either. But if you have special powers why not just go alacazam and give yourself gold and diamonds.

    How does the rest of that go? I remember it from long ago but what you wrote is all I remember. Finish it up please.

    That bookkeeper should have had something to write on. Of course, who knows if the Godfather would have let him live anyway?.

    I do wonder, why the Wizard never thought of that before? Maybe because half the time his tricks backfire, if they work at all?
