Let´s say...\"funny\" literature...





JUST A GANG OF BUSY BODIES!



I happened to find this ... somewhere... somehow...







There´s a story told about four people whose names were Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.



There came a time when there was an important job to do and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it but ... Nobody did it.



Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody´s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn´t do it.



It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!.



Cheers, Aurora

I know this Nobody Jun 11, 2002

I believe this Nobody was that clever but arrogant greek who blinded Poliphemus...



Then I lost track of him until I saw his grafitti:



\"Nobody is perfect!

My name is Nobody\"

Or the grafitti which was aligned with the country´s feelings last year:



Nobody does anything.

Let´s vote Nobody!
