Harvard Read Test Are you up to the challenge? This was developed as an age test by an R&D department at Harvard University. Take your time and see if you can read each line aloud without a mistake. The average person over 50 years of age can't do it! Good Luck! 1. This is this cat 2. This is is cat 3. This is how cat 4. This is to cat 5. This is keep cat 6. This is an cat 7. This is old cat 8. This is fart cat 9. This is busy cat 10. This is for cat 11. This is forty cat 12. This is seconds cat Now go back and read aloud the third word in each line from the top down and I'll bet you can't resist sending it to someone else

And here I thought that this was serious. Talk about being gullible. But coming from you I should have been prepared. I was so happy that I read the whole thing withou one mistake and then you had to go and bust my bubble with the punch line. For shame on you......just spoofing. Loved it...really fell hook, line and stinker.

I can't believe you got me on that one. I guess that means I guess that means you don't have to be over 50 to be considered an old fart. Oh well, I was feeling a bit old today anyway.

I caught that one really soon. Got a chuckle. Chuckles are good when you are cold, or old. Have a warm evening.

Been here before .. seen it, done it .. don't really see the point of it .. and certainly don't send such rubbish to anyone I choose to call a friend .. Sorry, ElusiveButterfly but it's this sort of 'round robin' email culture that clogs up the net and slows it down .. I only get these kinds of posts from folks I know in America .. so it must be more popular there than anywhere else .. and I ALWAYS delete without reading anything forwarded to me .. I know it's going to be wasting my time .. But .. just as well we are all different and have different likes and dislikes or the world would be a far less interesting place ..

Decided after I posted to add .... I think this is where British and American humour are so different .. and why we often don't understand comedy TV programmes from one country to the other ..:o)

Two vampire bats wake up in the middle of the night, thirsty for blood. One says, "Let's fly out of the cave and get some blood." "We're new here," says the second one. "It's dark out, and we don't know where to look. We'd better wait until the other bats go with us." The first bat replies, "Who needs them? I can find some blood somewhere." He flies out of the cave. When he returns, he is covered with blood. The second bat says excitedly, "Where did you get the blood?" The first bat takes his buddy to the mouth of the cave. Pointing into the night, he asks, "See that black building over there?" "Yes," the other bat answers. "Well," says the first bat, "I didn't."
