Buzzword

My father forwarded this thought to me that an old friend had sent him. It seems to hit the nail on the head.

"Buzzword"

The buzzword of this election is 'CHANGE.' Candidates toss it around without saying what they want to change to.

Years ago, there was an old tale in the Marine Corps about a Lieutenant who inspected his Marines and told the 'Gunny' that they smelled bad. The Lieutenant suggested that they change their underwear. The Gunny responded, "Aye,aye, sir, I'll see to it immediately."

The Gunny went into the tent and said, "The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowskie, Brown, you change with Schultz . Get to it."

The moral: A candidate may promise change in Washington but don't count on things smelling any better.

I'm laughing outloud, which is a bad thing since everyone is asleep. I think I'll use this on my kids. "Emma, don't forget to change your underwear . . . just don't change with Andrew!"
