    I would like to compile a "Top Ten" list on "Why is Slowman so slow on Fridays" and am looking for contributions from Talkbackers. The author of the selected pearl will be entitled to read his contribution live on my show. (And Mr. Bradley Burston, you are invited to contribute too. We know you dislike Slowman because he wouldn't allow any posts to your columns.) Here are some answers, in no particular order. Question: Why is Slowman so slow on Fridays? 1. Slowman figures that since there is no Saturday edition, the same Talkback forums will be there tomorrow too. Why do the work instead of leaving it for the next censor? 2. Jerusalem Post pays Slowman an extra bonus to ruin Haaretz`s most read Friday edition. 3. Slowman heard that Man was created on Friday and wants to emphasize his human side. (Apparently he doesn't realize that wild beasts were also created on Friday.) 4. His absent supervisor had to turn off the hot plate under Slowman's feet that makes him move faster. (Fire Department regulations.) 5. How is Friday different from any other day?
