Sayings and Their Origins

Funny story written by Cal Jennings

Saturday, 12 May 2007

It has often been said, "Might makes right," but where did this saying originate?

Through the years, when sayings are passed down by word of mouth alone, sayings get distorted. The quote, "Might makes right," for instance," has been altered by white supremacists to read, "White makes right." George W. Bush has recently changed it to, "Fight makes right."

The saying itself was changed from the original saying that was uttered by George Bush's long forgotten ancestor, "Judas Cesarian." The original quote was, "Wealth makes right," but someone wanted to make a rhyme out of the thing.

Why people bother passing down anything by word of mouth makes absolutely no sense at all. It is obvious that the human species, for the most part, is a bunch of greedy, self-centered liars who could give a flip whether or not something is passed down for posterity incorrectly. Freemasons largely rely on word of mouth to pass down their "secrets," so who would bother to listen to a Freemason anyway?

It is rumored that the Internet was created by Al Gore in preparation for George W. Bush's soon-to-be-announced ban of all books and other written material. That way he can have his "scholars" easily re-write history the way he THINKS it should be written since nothing electronically written is actually permanent. They agreed upon this plan at a Skull and Bones meeting in the early 80s. The banning of the book, "Tom Sawyer," for instance, was a prelude to this activity to see if it would be viable.

Unfortunately, there is no way to go back and find the source of material unless you happen to own a Tardis, can fly faster than the speed of light, have access to a black hole, or possess another form of time traveling ability. Until such time as we all have such capabilities, we should just believe anything that anyone tells us.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
