I gave it a good try, but I'm officially giving up on G+. Yes, there are several diehard followers here, and I appreciate you! But reaching "several" is not very good use of my time. I do understand not wanting to deal with Farcebook. But you can find me at Twitter -- https://twitter.com/ThisIsTrue -- and, yeah, Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ThisIsTrue/

Cheers!

Sorry to see you go, but understandable. Remote chance I'll see the occasional post on fb. Chances nil I'll see a tweet.

Monday's Jumbo Joke seems to apply well to the "Y" Generation: Always Online.
Always Online. It's amazing how obsessed everyone's become with their phones, playing with their phones all the time -- at restaurants, movies, gym (so I've heard), while driving, eating, walking, talking. The other day I was at a funeral when the person next to me asked me, "Rabbi, ...

A classic This is True story: smart, amusing, a little outrageous, and all capped by a killer tagline. Can't get better than this -- and it's only from the publication's second year. Satisfactory!

So, my evening was punctuated by a would-be reader who was so obliviotic and so abusive, I went in and canceled his brand-new subscription before he even got his first newsletter. But at least it inspired this graphic. Enjoy!

Friday's Jumbo Joke: Twas The Month After Christmas (aka, the hangover).
The cookies I'd nibbled, the chocolate I'd taste, At the holiday parties. Had gone to my waist. When I got on the scales. There arose such a number! When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber),. I'd remember the meals. I had prepared; The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared.

Wednesday's Jumbo Joke is perfect for the morning: The Starbucks Prayer.
The Starbucks Prayer. I avoid caffeine, but I know some "worship" it. My buddy Leo, for instance, often attends conferences with me. Pretty much the first thing he does when he arrives in a city is to figure out where the nearest Starbucks is.

Wednesday's Jumbo Joke: Rural Campaigning -- it's an election year, and you're gonna LOVE this one!
Rural Campaigning. This is an Election Year, and I have a dream.... - - -. It was the day before a big presidential election primary, and hordes of candidates from both parties arrived to campaign. As environmentalism was identified as a major issue in the state, the candidates curried favor by ...

Monday's Jumbo Joke is one I heard as a boy, and I've always liked it: What Married People Do.
Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 AM, the woman reached up and tapped on the upper bunk. "I'm terribly sorry to wake you, sir, but I'm awfully cold.

When I first posted this to Facebook in 2013, a woman named Mary Jones threatened to sue me, blah blah blah -- she was OUTRAGED that I'd post something specifically about HER. It takes all kinds. But it made me want to post it again and again and again. :-)
