A Story for the Holiday...

Once upon a time...several scientists gathered to discuss the condition of all of earth's inhabitants. After days of discourse they decided to perform a couple of experiments.

On the first day they constructed a huge cage in a very large laboratory. It was a simple, strong structure with one locked door. In this cage they placed animals of every type, known to be natural enemies, and provided for their basic needs to include an ample supply of water and plenty of Purina's finest animal chows. They had a rough time getting all of them into the cage. Once the creatures were in, and the door was locked, the scientists covered the cage with a huge canvas and headed off to Starbucks for a nice cup of Arabian Mocha Sanani.

After 24 hours the scientists returned to the laboratory, removed the canvas to discover that all of the animals (known to be natural enemies) had learned to get along. It was now time to move on to the second phase of their experiment. They freed all of the animals and went about cleaning the giant cage.

On day two they gathered all of the leaders from all of the world's religions. Once again the scientists saw to it that all basic needs, including each religion's sacred texts and items for their particular rituals were provided within the cage. They had a rough time getting all of them into the cage, but once they were in, and the door was locked, the scientists covered the cage with the huge canvas and headed off to IHOP for a well deserved order of stuffed crepes.

After 24 hours the scientists returned to the laboratory, removed the canvas to disover that...




Nothing was left.
