    HIDE

    Joe Louis was the world heavyweight boxing champion from 1937 until he retired in 1949. In 1946 Louis prepared to defend his title against a skilled fighter named Billy Conn. Louis was warned to watch out for Conn's great speed and his tactic of darting in to attack and then moving quickly out of his opponent's range. In a famous display of confidence, Louis replied, "He can run, but he can't hide."

    Today in the Word, July 6, 1993.


    A telemarketer called a home one day, and a small voice whispered, "Hello?"

    "Hello! What's your name?"

    Still whispering, the voice said, "Jimmy."

    "How old are you, Jimmy?"

    "I'm four."

    "Good, Is your mother home?"

    "Yes, but she's busy."

    "Okay, is your father home?"

    "He's busy too."

    "I see, who else is there?"

    "The police."

    "The police? May I speak with one of them?"

    "They're busy."

    "Any other grown-ups there?"

    "The firemen."

    "May I speak with a fireman, please?"

    "They're all busy."

    "Jimmy, all those people in your house, and I can't talk with any of them? What are they doing?"

    "Looking for me," whispered Jimmy.

    The Jokesmith, quoted in Bits & Pieces, April 1, 1993, pp. 3-4.
