Not too many days ago from today I got the question about if somebody named Jack Handy is maybe my neighbor. It made some sense to me because when I decided to think about it I remembered somebody named Jack living on my street, but when I did more of the research about it I found out that it was just me I was thinking about.
But it made me want to find out more about the Jack Handy person who’s not living on my street right now. And what I found out is something disturbing about something he made called “Deep Thoughts” which probably I should go ahead and tell you about so you don’t fall for his ideas and can go to the source instead.
I found out that Mr. Handy stole the ideas from a man named Luke who put something that looks too much like the Deep Thoughts ideas when he wrote down this one:
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye…”
At first I thought it must be one of the ones from Deep Thoughts, By Jack Handy because it made me think of too many of the Deep Thoughts books I found out about in the bookstore and library.
But I couldn’t find it in any of those books, so I wanted to warn people about it and maybe notify Deputy Attorney General of The United States Eric Holder to see if many of the other Deep Thoughts items need to be reviewed and probably confiscated before too much damage is done.
