Good morning crew,
As a Christmas present for me and the wife last year, my brother Nino and his lovely wife Marianne bought us all tickets to go see a live production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's famous rock opera 'Jesus Christ Superstar'. We're going this weekend.
I'm pretty excited. This show has been a hit for over 40 years, so I'm familiar with some of the songs, but I've never actually seen a performance.
So if you've seen it before and you're a fan, please don't tell me how it ends. I want to go in fresh.
Laugh it up,

Ken and Melba had finished their breakfast at the retirement home and were relaxing in the library. "You know," said Melba, "today, in most marriage ceremonies, they don't use the word 'obey' anymore."
"Too bad, isn't it?" retorted Ken. "It used to lend a little humor to the occasion."

In my sociology class, we were instructed to write down answers to some questions the teacher was asking.
"Next question," announced the instructor. "How would you like to be seen by the opposite sex?"
I was thinking about my answer when the young woman next to me turned and asked, "How do you spell 'intellectual?'"
