Humour: Even Your Tolerance Depends on the Zodiac Sign
Scorpio, "I-take-no-prisoners" Kind of Man
Scorpio came first. He asked what Tolerance was and whether it could be used for torture. Having heard the answer, he grew gloomy, wrote down something in his black notebook and left, waving his whip.
Capricorn, the Boss
Capricorn did not think it was respectable enough for him to be seen pushing his way through the crowd, so he sent a courier – Sagittarius.
Sagittarius, a Free Spirit
Sagittarius took as much Tolerance as he could fit in his knapsack, but on his way back he was distracted, carried away, went abroad and lost his knapsack there. To Capricorn he wrote that only assholes gave such assignments and continued his journey without luggage.
Cancer, the Worrier
Along came provident Cancer and picked up Tolerance that was dropped by Sagittarius. Cancer stashed it away. Somewhere. Sometimes he finds it, all of it at once, but then he fears that it might be stolen, stashes it away in a different place and forgets where again. And when Cancer begins complaining that all the people around him are not friends but a wolf pack, it means that he lost his Tolerance again.
Libra, the Aesthete
Libra came in time and asked for a couple of elegant Tolerances, please. Despite the fact that Libra actually got what he asked for, he very rarely uses either of the two Tolerances because Libra cannot really decide which is better.
Aquarius, the Visionary
Aquarius came one of the first but was promptly kicked out of the queue when he said that the creator of “Tolerance” was an amateur lacking both skill and imagination, because this “Construction” looked very similar with what inspired teenagers do when they follow instructions for “Do It Yourself. Age 4+”. Aquarius would do a much better job, had he enough time, that is.
Virgo, the Perfectionist
Virgo spent too much time calculating exactly how much Tolerance of exactly what Standard and Specification he needed. Therefore he missed his queue and got very little Tolerance of the Highest Standard. To make up for it, Virgo also got a device with which Tolerance was weighed. Now Virgo keeps his own minuscule Tolerance of the Highest Quality to himself and goes around with his weighing device measuring everybody else’s Tolerance.
Pisces, the Leave me in Peace Kind of Man
Aries wanted to come first, but on his way he met Pisces who had already got Tolerance. Pisces managed to run away, but their Tolerance was dramatically damaged. There where Aries got to Pisces (suffice it to say that Aries got almost everywhere), Pisces’ Tolerance became cracked and misshapen so much that it stopped looking like Tolerance altogether.
Aries, the Warrior
Aries turned back and went home because he was not a loser not to be the first in line, especially not after Pisces. However, Aries liked the word “Tolerance” so much, that he engraved it on his baseball bat.
Leo, the King of the World
Leo did not come at all, because he did not know what Tolerance was. And since He did not know it was clear enough that he did not need it.
Taurus, the Drill Sergeant
Taurus came only to tell that he already had Tolerance of his own which was the Best. Those who disagree could get lost and the quicker the better.
Gemini, a Diamond in the Rough
After everybody had left, very late at night “a slightly detained” Gemini arrived … to find only a tiny heap of scraps, leftovers, odd-come-shorts et cetera. He looked around and took it all. Therefore Gemini has an abundant supply of Tolerance; however, sometimes it seems like he had found it on the garbage heap.
For Those Who Still Wonder What
A willingness to be tolerant and respectful toward people whose opinions or ways differ from one’s own. (Tolerant – willing to let other people do as they think best; willing to allow beliefs and actions of which one does not approve).
