FROM THE LAUGH TRACK from Karen Paine New
The Three Samurais
Long ago and
far away there was in the land of the Samurai a powerful emperor who needed a
Chief Samurai, so he sent a declaration throughout the land that he was searching for the best one.
A year passed, and only three people showed up for the trials: a Japanese Samurai, Chinese
Samurai, and a Jewish Samurai.
The emperor asked the Japanese Samurai to demonstrate why he
should be the chief Samurai. The
Japanese Samurai opened a matchbox, and out flew a bumblebee. Whoosh! Went his razor sharp
sword, and the bumblebee dropped dead on the ground in two pieces. The emperor exclaimed: "This
then issued the same challenge to the Chinese Samurai; for him to demonstrate
he should be chosen. The Chinese Samurai also opened a matchbox, and out buzzed a fly. Whoosh,
Whoosh! Went his great flashing sword, and the fly dropped dead on the ground - in four small pieces.
The emperor exclaimed in awe: "That is really VERY impressive."
Now the emperor turned to the Jewish Samurai, and asked him also
to step forward and demonstrate
why he should be the head Samurai. The Jewish Samurai also opened a matchbox, and out flew a
tiny gnat. His lightning quick sword went Whooooosh! Whooooosh! Whoooosh! But the tiny gnat was
still alive and flying around.
obviously very disappointed in this display, said: "I see you are not up
to the task, for
the gnat is not dead."
The Jewish Samurai merely smiled and said: "Circumcision is not meant to kill."

Speaking of the King, we
were weren’t we? No, not Elvis, though his birthday
will bring thousands of the faithful to
the “King of the Surf Guitar”, Dick Dale. In the ’50s, Dale virtually created “Surf
Music”. While his name may not sound familiar and most of his songs won’t
strike a familiar note, his is an incredible story. Dale worked with industry
giants such as Leo Fender, who built the Dick Dale S ignature Stratocaster
Guitar and James B. Lansin, JBL, who ultimately was able to build speakers
that Dale couldn’t blow-up. Unarguably his most famous offering was his ’62 recording of “Miserlou”.
Doesn’t sound familiar? Many rate it as the best surf song ever written. Once you hear it, you’ll say”
that DOES sound familiar, now where have I heard that?” Before you read Dale’s story, turn your
