Once upon a time an old man spread rumours that his neighbour was a thief. As a result, the young man was arrested. Days later the young man was proven innocent. After been released he sued the old man for wrongly accusing him.

In court, the old man told the Judge: "They were just comments, it didn't harm anyone."

The judge, before passing a sentence on the case, told the old man: "Write all the things you said about the young man on a piece of paper. Cut them up and on your way home; throw the pieces of paper all over. Tomorrow, come back to hear the sentence."

The next day, the judge told the old man: "Before receiving the sentence, you will have to go out and gather all the pieces of paper that you scattered all over yesterday."

The old man said: "I cannot do that! The wind spread them and I will not be able to know where to find them."

The judge then replied: "The same way, simple comments may destroy the honour of a man to such an extent that one is not able to fix it. If you cannot speak well of someone, rather do not say anything.

"Let us all be masters of our mouths, so that we will not be slaves of our words."

If you have ever had to take a cat to the vet, you know what I mean. Here are the steps for getting a cat into a cage (the "Cameron's Cat Conundrum"):

1) Pick up cat 2) Push cat toward cage 3) Put iodine on scratches 4) Call veterinarian, tell him you'll be late for the appointment 5) Wait two days for cat to reappear 6) Put open can of tuna in the cage 7) Punish dog for eating tuna 8) Put fresh can of tuna in cage. Place cage out of reach of dog 9) Wait two days for cat to eat tuna 10) Give up, stalk cat through house, calling "here kitty, want to go for a car ride?" 11) Punish dog for barking excitedly at the words "car ride" 12) Corner cat, lunge, break coffee table 13) Wait two days for cat to reappear 14) Spot cat, leap on it, wrestle it to the ground. Carry cat to cage and shove it in...

Step #14 sounds like the end of it, except that I have a Humdinger of my own: Somehow, for every 10% of the cat's mass you manage, at great personal cost, to cram into the cage, 20% of its mass will escape. This means that after half an hour of pushing and bleeding, you'll wind up with less cat in the cage than you started with. And, if you try this at my house, you'll also have to deal with my dog, who is so determined to prove that she is a better pet than the cat that her head keeps popping up next to yours, licking you in the face and trying to force her way into the cage.

Eventually, you'll reach the same conclusion I did, which is that the cat is in the "dual state" of both being not my pet and being not my responsibility. It's my daughter's cat; let her wait two days for the cat to reappear and she can take it to the vet. This is the "Quantum Father's Solution to the Cameron Cat Conundrum," and I'm sure it is only a matter of time before it receives government funding.

I can always hope, anyway.
