No Kidding

JOKE OF THE WEEK, 3 Dec 2018

Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service

A man is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. on a Thursday and asked where he is going at that time of night. The man replies,

“I am on my way to attend a lecture on the ill effects that gambling, hookers, alcohol, smoking, and staying out late have on the human body.”

Given the context, the officer seems doubtful and asks sarcastically, “Oh, really? Who would be giving a lecture like that at this time of night?”

The man replies, “My wife.”

    Dear Antonio,

    First of all, sincere congratulation and admiration for your ongoing publication of TMS, specially since the untimely passing of dear friend and colleague, Dietrich Fischer. He is truly missed.

    I have greatly valued my long history of collaboration with Johan Galtung, particularly in recent years as a faculty member of the Transcend University. Considering the valuable work of TMS in promotion of peace, I am writing on behalf of the International Education for Peace Institute-Canada to consult with you about the possibility of making freely available the multi-volume (thus far 8 published volumes) EDUCATION FOR PEACE INTEGRATED CURRICULUM SERIES to the membership of TMS. We can provide PDF versions of these books for this purpose. I am writing to seek your views about such a possibility. I will be glad to send you, via Email, the list of these volumes along with brief description of each book. Kindly provide me an Email address for this purpose.

    With warm regards,

    Dr. H.B. Danesh
