This one Roman governor was a spontaneous guy, and he was often annoyed whenhis astrologer buddy had to consult the stars before they could meetfor a beer or go to the gladiator fights. Soon he got so fed up thathe stopped calling him. The astrologer called him a month later,claiming that he had turned over a new leaf.Incredulous, the governor asked, "OK, howzabout a game of racquetballthen?" There was a long pause. "What are you doing now?" he askedsharply."Hang on, I'm checking my palm, Pilate."
