    One time there was a 151st anniversary.

    Anything to stop me from liking this strip by quoting a year long number that’s too much older than the universe like it’s a proven fact based on beliefs by atheistic evolutionists.

    One time I was two feet tall.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    The jumping worm is also a pretty serious invasive species in North America.

    Five million Polish people signed the card, but there were still more vowels in the U.S. Declaration of Independence than in the card.

    “The atoms in your body are billions of years old.”

    Which means you are nothing more than a temporary arrangement of those atoms.

    A man thought he was a worm, and thus he was afraid of chickens, because, well, chickens eat worms. Obviously.

    So he went into therapy. After 6 months the therapist managed to convince him that he no longer was a worm, and as a final test, he needed to face chickens.

    Upon seeing the chickens he got scared and hid himself from the chickens, and seeing this his therapist asked “Why are you hiding from the chickens, are you still thinking you’re a worm?”

    The man replied “No I know I’m not a worm. But do the chickens know?”

    A helium atom walks into a bar.

    The bartender says “Sorry, we don’t serve noble gases in here.”

    The helium doesn’t react.

    You can never trust an atom.

    They make up everything

    Last call for atoms.

    The following was heard in a courtroom:

    “According to Scientists, atoms are as old the universe.

    So therefore your honour she was legal"

    Until next time.

    Most earthworms in northern North America are invasive species. But, they are welcome in lawns and gardens. It’s in woods and forests where they are a problem.

    Even though earthworms are welcome in lawns and gardens, jumping worms are not. The community composting site here asks suppliers to NOT drop off yard waste that contains jumping worms.

    They are a big problem in soil quality. They have now been found in my area.

    The way to find an Asian jumping worm is look for a burrow with a one foot ceiling.

    Hang in there Poland and neighbors. The appropriators do what they do, but God never forgets.

    That was very nice of Poland to honor the USA that way. Nobody else did.

    It is a shame that most of the people from Poland that signed the anniversary card may not have survived the Germans and Russians during WWII.

    Idiots keep the evolution myth alive to keep from having to live without thinking.
