Glendora Vegeterian Club

You know, folks, I’ve been telling my contemporaries to stop eating meat. They did not. They are all now horizontal, and here I stand vertically, all alone. Why? Veganism!

Again, folks, what is “vegan”? A vegan is a person who will not eat animals, wear animals, exploit or steal the graces God has given them, such as fur, honey, or bones. A vegan believes you extend the kindness you show other human beings to the members of the animal kingdom. Some may ask “Why should we treat an animal with behavior that we frequently don’t even offer to all humans?” To that, I encourage you to think of and then practice expanding and increasing your positive behavior and feelings towards others, rather than limiting and restricting. Your capability for kindness is infinite!

Pray for me, folks.  I recently  finished making my 14,000th  TV show!

Some jokes:

1. What do you call somebody who does not get angry?  A nomad.

2. When I was little, I was worried about my pigeon toes. Now the concern is my crow’s feet.

3. I have to give away my computer, my smartphone, and my digital camera. The Bible says “You shall have no other icons before thee.”

4. This couple went out and bought a new computer. Their son works for a high tech company along Route 128 in Boston. When he came home for the weekend, he looked at the new computer and said to them, “Where did you get this old thing?”

Ask Google, “Who is Glendora Buell?” and “Who is Glendora Folsom?” and “Who is Glendora Folsom Buell?”
