Two young mothers are swapping stories about their preschoolers.
Says one to the other, “One time when my son was 3, I took him shopping. When we got home, he had a candy bar in his pocket. I didn’t buy it, and he certainly didn’t buy it, so I marched him back to the mall — and that time we went to the jewelry store.”
Customer: Waiter, there’s a fly in my soup!
Waiter: That could very well be, sir. The cook also works as a tailor.
I have CDO. It’s like obsessive compulsive disorder but in alphabetical order, as it should be.
Round ‘em up
A farmer wants to know how many sheep he has in his field, so he asks his border collie to count them. The dog runs into the field, counts them and runs back to the farmer.
The farmer says, “How many?”
The dog, which happens to be an advanced example of the breed, says, “40.”
The farmer is surprised and says, “How can there be 40. I only bought 38!”
The dog says, “I rounded them up.”
Never mind then
Leland Parrot reports:
Several women appeared in court, each accusing the others of causing the trouble they were having in the apartment building where they lived.
The women were arguing noisily, even in the courtroom.
The judge, banging his gavel to quiet them, said, “We are going to do this in an orderly manner. I can’t listen to all of you at once.
I’ll hear the oldest first.”
The case was dismissed for lack of testimony.
A man tells his buddy, “We had a power outage at my place last week, and my PC, laptop, TV, DVD, iPad and new Surround Sound music system were all shut down.
“Then I discovered that my cellphone battery was flat, and to top it off, it was raining outside, so I couldn’t go hunting.
“I went into the kitchen to make coffee, and then I remembered that this also needs power, so I talked with my wife for a few hours.
She seems like a nice person.
Silence is golden. Unless you have kids. Then silence is just suspicious.
Struggling to make ends meet on a first-call salary, the pastor was livid when he confronted his wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought. “How could you do this?!”
“I was outside the store looking at the dress in the window, and then I found myself trying it on,” she explained. “It was like Satan was whispering in my ear, ‘You look fabulous in that dress. Buy it!’”
“Well,” the pastor replied, “You know how I deal with that kind of temptation. I say, ‘Get behind me, Satan!’”
“I did,” replied his wife, “but then he said, ‘It looks fabulous from back here, too!’”
