Happy New Year! La Multi Ani! Gelukkig Nieuw Jaar!

Last day of 2011. In a few hours we'll kiss the old year good bye and start working on the new resolutions. At midnight everyone will celebrate in their own way: drinking champagne, firing up fireworks, partying, sleeping, karaoke-ing, telling scary stories, watching TV and so forth.

This midnight moment reminds me of a story, as true as the reader wants to believe it. Of course, don't try this at home!

One day, round midnight, this guy is driving in a remote area, along a field of pumpkins. All of a sudden he got aroused by a strange idea.

"A pumpkin", he thinks, "is so soft and squishy inside and there's no one around". This being said, he pulls over, chooses a pumpkin that looks promising, cuts the right hole in it and begins to screw it.

He gets so carried away that he doesn't even see the police officer who's approaching him. The cop comes by and says:

"Excuse me sir, but do you realise you are screwing a pumpkin?"

The guy looks at the cop in utter distress, then at the pumpkin, thinks really fast and says: "A pumpkin? Is it midnight already?"

Happy New Year!
See you all in 2012!
