• We would like to thank the gentleman who followed us through the check stand Thursday evening at Safeway: Your payment of our groceries was the nicest gesture we have received. We will pass it forward. Thank you.
• In a moment of magnaminous generosity, I will do my part to lower our national debt caused by the government bailout by donating all of the wealth offered to me by the generous people of Africa this past year.

Now, if every American would follow my lead, then the national debt could be entirely eliminated and no doubt a substantial surplus would be recorded. I think this is sheer genius on my part.
