    The right side of the body is controlled by the left side of the brain and vice versa. So, only those on the left are in their right minds.

  • Everyone has the right to vote left. But then there's nobody left to vote right!
    Jeez...I don't think I'll EVER understand politics!

  • According to the Bible (Ecclesiastes 10:2) (NIV)

    The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
    But the heart of the fool to the left.
