  1. Joe Cartwheel was an epicurian, a poor speller, and an aspirin' artist. When asked why he entered a real, Big Mac hamburger in the art contest, rather than his still-life oil painting of a Thanksgiving dinner, Joe said, "It's meteor."

  2. It's amazing how you can weave the required words into your story. You have a gift.

  3. Ye old newspaper clipping

    Mr Hoffman, the inventor of aspirin, was so excited about the new painting exhibit at the museum that he and his arthritic father both did cartwheels in from of everyone, reports an onlooker who does not wish to be named.
    Then he exclaimed "I feel as though a meteor has hit my heart with this revelation of beauty"
    Mr and Mr Hoffman will be kept under observation at the local mental hospital "rolling greens asylum"

  4. from = front! makes more sense that way! lol

  5. Send in the Clown

    An anonymous member of the “Jesus Seminar” stated that the group may be undergoing a radical transformation. This began when the scholars invited Manny Mancini as a guest speaker. Mr. Mancini was formerly known as "Manny the Meteor", former human fireball circus act turned clown/mime for Christ. Mr. Mancini, dressed in his colorful outfit, performed an interpretive cartwheel dance to “Jesus Loves Me”, juggled 12 aspirin tablets while riding a unicycle, and then illustrated the spark of divine light in all mankind by painting a picture with finger paints. He ended his time with a sermon in mime on how Jesus wants everyone to just laugh and enjoy life. The member said the group was speechless with awe at the simple and profound way the clown conveyed his message. “I think we need to rethink our whole purpose. Rather than asking whether we believe Jesus actually said something, we may need to ask the question whether Jesus would find something funny. We also may give up the beads and just use honks on a bicycle horn to indicate our vote.”
