A hot tip from Jimmy the Nose

Here’s a high 5 for your winning cartoon, Carl.
February 2nd, 2013 at 08:20
You pretty cool and hip lady. When in heaven bet the seven.
February 2nd, 2013 at 08:32
It;s a level playing field here.
February 2nd, 2013 at 08:48
I see you internalized the concept. But can there be winners if there are no losers in any societal competition ?
February 2nd, 2013 at 09:14
Oh how your mind works. An this is Super Bowl weekend……thanks for the chuckle.
February 2nd, 2013 at 10:26
Actually I have no idea how but it does. Super Bowl. I pick my Miami Dolphins, 38 – 10.
February 2nd, 2013 at 16:02
don’t follow football, normally ‘that’ would slip by me, but this time it didn’t …..though with some am sure it did
February 2nd, 2013 at 09:34
only way I would win!
February 2nd, 2013 at 10:27
Spot Jimmy the Nose some green and you’ll be in the loop.
February 2nd, 2013 at 09:35
Love this! Wish I could live in Florida too!
February 2nd, 2013 at 10:29
Miami is wonderful October through May, but the rest is a humid, hot Bataan Death March.
February 2nd, 2013 at 09:44
I think I’ll put my money on number five too.
February 2nd, 2013 at 10:30
Stupid me, I bet the 3.
February 2nd, 2013 at 10:57
I bet that No 5 won! P.S. You just reminded me of a joke about horse racing which is religious post. Thank you Mr. D. I go and work on this for future post.
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:06
I don’t get to read all of your posts, seeker, but you have my email and be sure to let me know when you post it.
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:03
Isn’t that a lot like the sociological child-rearing ways of today. ‘EVERYBODY WINS, there aren’t any losers… Loser is a tag that the poor kids will carry for life…’ What a bunch of hogwash. Let the kids learn how to lose, because real life doesn’t allow them the same molly-coddling that today’s liberal education/parenting system does! Do that and they will be better at winning and will probably try harder at what they do.. And you can bet on that..
But until then, give me a double sawbuck on the 5 across the board..
Thank you for the opportunity and the forum to spout my philosophies, ad nauseum.
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:14
Oh I surely agree. When my kids were little I went to some of those “end of the season” parent/kids bar-b-qs and every kid got a trophy for something. It was sickening and you would not believe the ridiculous categories they created to do it. Trying to be the best or at least up there at the top is what motivates us and striving for excellence is a victory in itself for life skills whether you actually win or not. I think even though they are the big money player team, to play for the Yankees is the most stressful of all teams because if your don’t win the whole shebang you are considered bums and losers.
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:22
They don’t have parades for everyone do they? Cellar dwellers don’t get the trophies.
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:25
Butcha still gotta love the Cubs.

Hahahahaha ah if only!
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:17
Yeah, if only but in life if you always do the right honest things in all your affairs you are a winner all the time.
February 2nd, 2013 at 12:46
I put my money on the “1st #5″ …. You’re always so clever!

I was at the horse race tracks not that long ago just for kicks really. We won the tkts in a raffle for charity of all things! I enjoyed the races, but could not help to feel sorry for those that I noticed are addicted to gambling. Some of them their faces looked older than I knew they were.
February 2nd, 2013 at 17:31
Yes it it getting every bit of money you have to try to get back losses just like you have to spend for drugs. The addiction rules.
February 2nd, 2013 at 14:05
Ah Happyland, so impossible…
February 2nd, 2013 at 17:38
Sadly that seems the reality.
February 2nd, 2013 at 19:53
I’d bet on 5 too!
February 2nd, 2013 at 20:51
February 2nd, 2013 at 20:20
A definite sign of the times… everybody wins!
February 2nd, 2013 at 20:52
I’d like to think that too but not in this present economy.
February 3rd, 2013 at 01:45
I hope you’re well ~` my prayers have been with u. You ALWAYS make me happy ! Blessings friend ~Deborah

Since schools are doing away with competitive interests, perhaps one day your vision will be the norm. I think the pay-offs will be a little disappointing, but perhaps that’s not the goal.
February 3rd, 2013 at 05:42
Food for thought anyway.
February 3rd, 2013 at 08:14
Very sophisticated vision, future looking Carl.
February 3rd, 2013 at 17:17
My powers of precognition are very profound.
February 3rd, 2013 at 18:06
This is great!! Everyone is a winner
February 3rd, 2013 at 18:09
If only true for all of us.
February 3rd, 2013 at 18:10
A smart gambler never bets it all. Sometimes you are hot and some times the luck runs cold. Like Kenny Rogers said “You gotta know when to hold them, you gotta know when to fold them.” Don’t always make the right call but always keep reserve $ for another day. Great story – thanks.
February 3rd, 2013 at 23:25
I wonder why the horses were even running if everyone wins. Might as well take it easy and saunter over the finish line…whenever they decide to get there
February 4th, 2013 at 03:52
You have to go through the motions to make the dreams reality.
February 4th, 2013 at 08:52
Uh oh, everyone is happy but the bookie.

That’s right. We cut out the parasitic middleman. Of course there is still the IRS…They way to beat them is to keep the bets small but buy them many times over. $20 a hundred times pays no tax but a $2,000 ticket winner does.
February 5th, 2013 at 17:54
I’ld like to put 100 bucks on number 5
February 6th, 2013 at 09:17
Very astute. Yeah, funny joke – I don’t know if Catholics or Protestants enjoyed it more.
February 5th, 2013 at 17:55
P.S. The Trackback/Pingback joke at the bottom of the comments was hilarious

I googled Happyland but I couldn’t find it anywhere!

It actually is still in the “dream about it phase”.
Sunday Humour – CATHOLIC HORSES « theseeker
February 3rd, 2013 at 02:07
[...] A punter was at the horse races playing the ponies and all but losing his shirt. He noticed a Priest step out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, that horse – a very long shot – won the race. Next race, as the horses lined up, the Priest stepped onto the track. Sure enough, he blessed one of the horses. The punter made a beeline for a betting window and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse won the race. He collected his winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the Priest would bless next. He bet big on it, and it won. As the races continued the Priest kept blessing long shots, and each one ended up winning. The punter was elated. He made a quick dash to the ATM, withdrew all his savings, and waited for the Priest’s blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on . True to his pattern, the Priest stepped onto the track for the last race and blessed the forehead of an old nag that was the longest shot of the day. This time the priest blessed the eyes, ears, and hooves of the old nag. The punter knew he had a winner and bet every cent he owned on the old nag. He watched dumbfounded as the old nag came in last. In a state of shock, he went to the track area where the Priest was. Confronting Him, he demanded, ‘Father! What happened? All day long you blessed horses and they all won. Then in the last race, the horse you blessed lost by a mile. Now, thanks to you I’ve lost every cent of my savings! The Priest nodded wisely and with sympathy. ‘Son,’ he said, ‘that’s the problem with you Protestants; you can’t tell the difference between a simple blessing and last rites. This post was received via e-mail from a knitting friend and by “Bet the 5 in the sixth” by I know I made you smile. [...]
