Misfortune?

Two philosophers were sitting at a restaurant, discussing whether or not there was a difference between misfortune and disaster.

"There is most certainly a difference," said one. "If the cook suddenly died and we couldn't have our dinner that would be a misfortune -- but certainly not a disaster."

"On the other hand," said the other, "If a cruise ship carrying Congress was to sink in the middle of the ocean, that would be a disaster -- but by no stretch of the imagination would it be a misfortune."

  6. What a waste of a lovely cruise.

    Would that mean then that Congress would be 'sleeping with the Lawyers'?

    Waitaminutewaitaminute 98.5% of them are Lawyers!

    Still a waste of a cruise.

    Aloha!

  7. I'm not so sure the second scenario would even be classified as a disaster
