desperately seeking absurdity

An hour-long lunch spent at the yielded this - The World Next Week. Reporting on news that has yet to happen. (Of course some of you may wonder why an hour to find what was on the first page, but my ritual generally goes sport-cricket-tennis-news-entertainment-[sometimes]science/nature-technology before I hit the news...that way if I run out of the hour, I don't miss the important happenings). the wise have said before me, that's so sex!

One day many years ago at a school in South London a teacher said to the class of 5-year-olds, "I'll give 20 Pounds to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever lived."
An Irish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St.Patrick." The teacher said, "Sorry Alan, that's not correct."
Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St.Andrew." The teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right either.
Finally, a Gujarati boy raised his hand and said, "It was Jesus Christ." The teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Jayant,come up here and I'll give you the 20 Pounds." As the teacher was giving Jayant his money, she said, "You
know Jayant, since you are Gujarati, I was very surprised you said
Jesus Christ."
Jayant replied, "Yes, in my heart I knew it was Lord
Krishna, but business is business!"
