THE GRIPPER – Schindler Sez

I couldn’t think of a damn thing for Schindler to Sez today.

The Gipper
Phil, an avid Notre Dame fan and his wife had little difficulty choosing a middle name for their newborn son. It was to be David, after one of his a grandfathers. However, after going through a multitude of lists looking for a first name, his wife finally asked, “How about Nick? I really like that name.”
Hesitating for a moment, Phil had a brilliant idea. Since Nick starts with an N and David with a D, that stands for ND…Notre Dame.
“I like it too,” he said with a smile. So it’s agreed. We’ll call him Nick.”
That day, Phil felt like a million dollars…because he finally won one for the Gipper.

No Returns
Martin has four children and when a friend who obviously thought he wanted more said, “Did you ever think about adoption?”
Martin answered, “Yeah, but I hear you have to take them, not give them.”

Only in America
Only in America…can politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 per plate campaign fund-raising event.
