JOKE

Ladies Lunch :

"A group of girlfriends, all age 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because the waiters there were handsome, with tight pants and nice bums. 

Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because the food was good and the wine selection was excellent. 

Ten years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because they could dine in peace and quiet and the restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean. 

Ten years later, at age 70, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because the restaurant was wheelchair accessible and had an elevator. 

Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because they had never been there before."

FOOD

Newark Mayor Cory Booker preparing to live a week on food stamps
"Cory Booker, America's favorite mayor andoccasional superhero, is preparing to live for a week or more on food stamps
— if his challenge to a Twitter user is accepted.
The challenge came when the Newark mayor got into a tête-à-tête on Twitter about the role of government in funding food programs for schoolchildren...."

(news.yahoo.com)

food stamp = "A stamp or coupon, issued by the government to persons with low incomes, that can be redeemed for food at stores."
(thefreedictionary.com)

The food stamp program "is now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP, but the program is still exactly the same.
The program offers benefits to people with low-incomes who have difficulties purchasing food as well as paying their monthly bills.
Even though SNAP is a federal program, states and local agencies organize and run it."
