Mike Mooney A Yankee was driving through the south when he decided he wanted to buy a pig. He stopped at a pig farm and told the farmer he wanted to buy a 100 pound pig.
The farmer nodded, walked out into the sty, bent over and picked up a pig by its tail with his teeth. The farmer said, “This one will go a little over a 100”.
Astonished the Yankee said, “Who are you trying to fool? You can’t weigh a pig that way”.
The farmer laughed and called to his young son, “Boy, come over here and weigh that pig for this man”.
The boy obliged by bending over and picking up the pig by its tail with his teeth. Turning to his father the boy said, ” This here pig weighs about 100 pounds”.
The Yankee was having no part of this so in order to convince him the farmer told his son to go to the house and get his mother so she could weigh the pig. After a short delay the son returned and said, “Ma says she will be right down after she’s finished weighing the mailman”.
What’s A Tupperware Party?
One evening after dinner, my five-year-old son Brian noticed that his mother had gone out. In answer to his questions, I told him, ‘Mommy is at a Tupperware party.’
This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, ‘What’s a Tupperware party, Dad?’
I’ve always given my son honest answers, so I figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. ‘Well, Brian,’ I said, ‘at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other.’
Brian nodded, indicating that he understood. Then he burst into laughter. ‘Come on, Dad,’ he said. ‘What is it really?’
A wealthy old lady decides to
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her poodle along for company. One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, discovers that he’s lost. Wandering about, he notices a hungry-looking leopard heading rapidly in his direction. The poodle thinks, “Uh, oh!” Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the poodle exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?” Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. “Whew!” says the leopard. “That was close! That poodle nearly had me!” Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, monkey, hop on my back so you can watch me chew that poodle to bits!” Now, the poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now?” but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn’t seen them yet, and waits until they get just close enough to hear. “Where’s that damn monkey?” the poodle says. “I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”
The man looked a little worried when the doctor came in to administer his annual physical, so the first thing the doctor did was to ask whether anything was troubling him.
“Well, to tell the truth, Doc, yes,” answered the patient. “You see, I seem to be getting forgetful. I’m never sure I can remember where I put the car, or whether I answered a letter, or where I’m going, or what it is I’m going to do once I get there — if I get there. So, I really need your help. What can I do?”
The doctor mused for a moment, then answered in his kindest tone, “Pay me in advance.” [/restrict]
