A Gentleman Does Not Tuck A Bib Or Napkin Into His Front Collar Before Eating. That Is For Little Boys Not Grown Men - Where Is Your Chivalry? - by Alfred




   Unfortunately, some grown men who see a beautiful clean napkin placed in front of them at a dinner or a luncheon, think it was left there to be used as a bib so as not to stain their sometimes expensive or sometimes rented suit.

   As much as no one wants to be the fellow who walks around a cocktail party with small food stains on their shirt, the napkin wasn't placed there to be used as a bib.

   The napkin was placed there to be put on your lap.

   Practice eating all kinds of foods without staining your shirt at home.

   Wait a minute, forgive me, you are a grown man, you have been eating everyday of your life from childhood to adulthood.
    I'm sure you didn't stain your shirt anytime you sat down to eat everyday of your life up to adulthood.

    So, don't worry. Don't use the napkin as a bib and embarrass yourself at a dinner party.
    Be confident that nothing would go wrong.

    Note that with a napkin on your lap, if you are leaning slightly forward towards the table as you eat and not leaning backwards into the chair, from a sideways view your mouth would be protruding out ahead of your chest and stomach. So if any food should fall from your lips in such a position it would fall on the table or in your lap (which would be covered with a napkin).

    Best Society knows this. You are expected to know this

    However, if you have a large protruding stomach, your stomach may still be in the way.

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
