Glendora Vegetarian Club

Glendora has a very close friend who is an elementary school teacher. Her school is going to be filled with children all week long. Glendora could sense fear in her friend, and from what she said, there is fear among students, other teachers and administrators. This is so sad to observe. Please, everybody, stamp out the threat: masks, spray, gloves, social distancing. Also, go vegan and strengthen your immune system. The virus can get you as easily as the common cold can get you.

See Glendora’s commercials to help the animals during the 6:30 p.m. news, Channel 6 CBS.


1. It was the first day of classes, and the professor swaggered into the classroom and said, “If there are any dumbbells in this class, I want you to stand up immediately.”

A long time passed. Finally a lone freshman stood up in the back row. “Are you a dumbbell?” the professor roared. The little freshman answered, “Well, er, I felt sorry for you standing up there all by yourself.”

2. Another professor said for every student who has a spark of genius there are 10 others who have ignition problems.

3. Daddy, what is college bread? It’s a 4 year loaf made out of the old man’s dough.
