Truth.  Truth be told.....or is it ever told?
        Here's a good one about the truth - Mark Twain said - If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

That's a great one because it's not true on several levels.

First, if you tell the truth.......who the hell tells the truth?  And let's say you do, what does that mean you don't have to remember anything.....I mean, I forget things all the time!  So does everyone!  Go ahead..... tell me....what is the truth?  Big old question.....still only one answer I have found.

The truth is.....the REAL truth one knows what the truth is....because if anyone says they know the truth....they are lying......

           (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And that my friends, is the truth.....

           (Exits.....or do they)
