Hello Everybody! Editor-In-Chief Lee Houston, Junior
here because since it's the Memorial Day weekend here in the United States, Waxy Dragon and Autumn the Puppy have the holiday off.

Now, I've been thinking long and hard about what to do for this week's Sunday Funnies, and came up with Water!

Back in March of 2011, Autumn did a fantastic post on a submarine race.
Won't reprint it, but here's the link if you want to read it again.

But seriously, water is a precious commodity that is very necessary to life itself, yet there are those who don't think twice about contaminating it, let alone others who's only concern is to bottle and ship the water elsewhere in hopes of making a profit.

Yet have you ever truly stopped and thought about water?
It composes three quarters of this planet, but we named our world earth.
A typical cumulus cloud contains 1.1 million pounds of water, but are we afraid it's all going to come out at once?
We run for shelter when it starts raining, yet we don't think twice about going swimming, taking a bath, or a long soak in the hot tub when possible.

If you feel tired even after a good night’s sleep, you might be dehydrated.
Drinking water can wake you up. Yet most people's morning beverage of choice is coffee, leading to several franchise choices where you can stop and grab a mug on the way to work, if you can't last long enough to make it to the office and raid the coffee maker there.
Of course, that also gives you a lot of opportunities to pay more for a cup while you're out than it would cost you to brew some at home.

They found evidence of water on Mars!
And of course, there's also that age old question about whether the glass is half empty or half full?
The optimist says the glass is half full.
The pessimist says that the glass is half empty.
The engineer says the glass is full - half of water and half of air.
The scientist will want to run some tests first before answering the question, let alone decide whether or not it is safe to drink.
The banker would say the glass has under 50% of its net worth in liquid assets.
The seasoned drinker would say the glass doesn’t have enough ice.
The psychiatrist would ask “What did your mother say about the glass?”
The opportunist would leave a note “While you guys were arguing about the glass, I drank the contents of it.”

So whatever you do this holiday weekend and the rest of the week, enjoy a good clean glass of water from time to time, and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—lth,jr
