Thought of the Day

Home » Latest News » Thought of the Day

We suspect that a number of our news stories today may not have fooled you, our regular readers, but a few apt thoughts for this particular day of the year may amuse:

"I sometimes wonder if the manufacturers of fool-proof items keep a fool or two on their payroll to test things."

Alan Coren, English humorist 1938 — 2007

"Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes each day. Wisdom consists of not exceeding that limit."

Elbert Hubbard, American writer 1859 — 1915

"A man may be a fool and not know it, but not if he is married."

H. L. Mencken, American journalist 1880 — 1956

If you have any thoughts, quotes, sayings or even short poems you would like published, please email

Our normal, hopefully reliable, news service will resume tomorrow! To the relief of most of the webteam!
