Submitted for your amusement:

Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.

It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21th birthday.
On that special day, they'd each walked across the lake to the pub on the far side for their first legal drink.

So when Paddy's 21th birthday came 'round, he and his pal Mick, took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Paddy stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned!
Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.

Furious and confused, Paddy, went to see his grandmother.

'Grandma,' he asked, "Tis me 21th birthday, so why can't I walk 'cross the lake like me father, his father, and his father before him?"

Granny looked deeply into Paddy's troubled blue eyes and said, "Because ye father, ye grandfather and ye great-grandfather were all born in December, when the lake is frozen, and ye were born in August, ya fookin idiot!"

I know this is from Fox News but I thought it was an interesting viewpoint. Should there be some kind of testing done to insure that you are an informed voter? I hear a lot of concern about an uninformed vote being considered as good as an informed vote. I ...
