There once was a little brown bug, which lived in a rolled up rug, He had a rather funny name. It was Excuse Me. He lived all alone in a storage room in a very big mall. Luckily, the food court was nearby so he always had plenty to eat.

During the day lots of people came to the mall to go shopping and spent a lot of time rushing around and bumping into each other. Excuse Me did not understand what all the fuss was about. "This is all very confusing" he would say and go home to his little rolled up rug that he called home.

Sometimes someone in a rush would say, "Excuse me" as they rushed to and fro. Excuse me would jump up when they called his name and rush right over. It seemed to happen all the time. Especially when it was really busy and there were a lot of people around.

A short bald man accidentally bumped into short round woman in a red dress.

"Excuse me" he said.

Excuse me rushed right over.

"Yes sir. How can I help you?" Excuse Me said.

"What?" said the man.


"You called, sir" Excuse Me said.

"Huh?" said the man. He looked kind of bewildered.

"What?" said Excuse Me. It was a little noisy in the busy mall. Maybe he hadn't heard right.

"Who?" said the short bald man. He didn't look very happy.

"Excuse Me" said Excuse Me. Maybe this would clear things up a bit.

"Your excused" the man said.

"No sir, Excuse Me" said Excuse Me. Maybe he was finally getting through.

But the man just gave him a little nod and rushed off. Excuse Me sat down on a step and sighed. That hadn't made any sense at all.

"That was just so confusing," said Excuse Me. "I think I'll just go to bed." And he did.


One day Excuse Me he went for a long walk to the other end of the mall. He needed to do a little thinking. He wanted to be helpful and maybe make a friend. He was so tired of being lonely.


Several times he heard his name called but he just ignored them. He didn't feel like being very friendly or helpful today.

Suddenly there was a loud crash and a whole lot of commotion up ahead.

Someone yelled "Well Exuuusssssssee Me" in a rather excited voice.

This sounded rather serious to Excuse Me and he ran up to the scene very quickly.

Several people sat on the floor surrounded by packages and shopping bags. They slowly began to  get up from the floor and pick up the scattered packages. They all seemed to be very embarrassed.

"Excuse me, pardon me" said a rather tall man in very nice suit. He started to help up the other people. "My fault, so sorry, I beg your pardon." He appeared to have rushed around a corner without looking and knocked down some other shoppers. It was the worst mall accident Excuse Me had seen in days. The man in the suit seemed to be very sorry about the whole thing.

"He must really need my help," thought Excuse Me. "He keeps calling my name."


As he rushed up to help, another bug bumped into him.

"Pardon Me," said Excuse Me.

"Yes?" said the other bug.

"What?" said Excuse Me.

"Huh?" said the other bug.

"Oh boy," thought Excuse Me, “this is starting to sound confusing."

"I said Pardon Me," said Excuse Me a little louder. Maybe if he spoke a little louder the other bug would understand him better.

"That's my name," said Pardon Me with a smile. "How can I help you?"

"Your name is Pardon Me?" said Excuse Me. He could hardly believe it. "My name is Excuse Me."

"What a funny name you have" said Pardon Me. "But it is very nice to meet you."

The two bugs shook hands and right away knew that they were going to be great friends.

Pardon Me took Excuse Me to meet his parents.


"Mom! Dad! I want you to meet a new friend of mine.

His name is Excuse Me."

"Nice to meet you," said Pardon Me's mom and dad. They seemed like very nice bugs.

"Excuse Me, this is my family. My dad, So Sorry.  My mom, My Fault. And this is my Grandpa, Beg Your Pardon" said Pardon Me. "I was named after Gramps," he said with chuckle.

"So Sorry, My Fault, Beg Your Pardon and Pardon Me", said Excuse Me. He could hardly believe what he had just heard.

"Well I'll be, " he said shaking his head.

"No." said Pardon Me. "That’s my little sister".

Well after that Excuse Me and Pardon Me were always together. Excuse Me no longer was the little brown bug who lived in a rug but moved to the other side of the mall to be near his new friends. They had many great adventures and were best of friends. So the next time you are in the mall and hear people calling out "Excuse Me, Pardon Me" look around and see if you can see those two little bugs with the most unusual names.


The End



"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
