Public Service: Avoid Palm Cruise Lines


This is a public service.  Never go on a Palm Cruise.  This is a letter I received from Palm Cruise Lines after I wrote them for a refund following an unsatisfactory vacation I had on one of their singles cruises.  The cruise was disappointing.  Their response even more so.  See for yourself why you should avoid Palm Cruises.

Dinner With Socrates


—  ”Socrates, thank you for taking the time to come over to my place to have dinner.  I’m thrilled and honored.  When I applied to college and was asked ‘who from history I’d most like to have dinner with?’, I never thought it could come true.  But, here we are.”  

—  ”Yes, your university scientists do good job bring me here to your era.  I only just learn English but I happy to discuss with you here.  This is first time I leave lab and must get back to scientists soon, for what scientists call investigations?”

—  ”I know, so while you help yourself to dinner, let’s get into it.  I’m fascinated to know your thoughts on life.  Tell me about the nature of humankind.”

—  ”What this here?”

—  ”It’s a panini.”

—  ”You make?”

—  ”Yeah, it’s easy.  I used a panini maker.”

—  ”You have machine?  It just make puh-nee-nee?”
