When Students are Smarter than Their Teachers

Teacher: "Maria, go to the map and find North America."
Maria: "Here it is."
Teacher: "Correct. Now class, who discovered America?"
Class: "Maria!"

Teacher: "Glenn, how do you spell Crocodile?"
Glenn: "K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L."
Teacher: "No, that's wrong."
Glenn: "It might be wrong, but you asked me how I spell it."

Teacher: "Cindy, why are you doing your math problems on the floor?"
Cindy: "You told me to do it without using tables."

Tommy: "Dad, can you write in the dark?"
Father: "I think so. What do you want me to write?"
Tommy: "Your name on this report card."

Teacher: "What is the chemical formula for water?"
Sarah: "H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O"
Teacher: "What are you talking about?"
Sarah: "Yesterday you said water is 'H to O'."

Teacher: "Johnny, give me a sentence starting with 'I'."
Johnny: "I is--"
Teacher: "NO, Johnny! Always say 'I am!"
Johnny: "All right: I am the ninth letter of the alphabet."

Teacher: "George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted doing it. Now do you know why his father did not punish him?"
Sally: "Because George still had the axe in his hand."

Teacher: "Children, if I saw a man beating a donkey and stopped him, what virtue would I be showing?"
Johnny: "Brotherly love."

Teacher: "What do you call a person who keeps talking when people are no longer interested?"
Entire Class, in unison: "A Teacher!"

Slow Down!

A farmer lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. So one day he called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."

"What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.

"I don't care, just do something about those speeding drivers!"

So the next day he had the county go out and put up a sign that said:

SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING

Three days later the farmer called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. The 'school crossing' sign seems to make them go faster!" So, again, the sheriff sends out the county and they put up a new sign:

SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY

And that really sped them up. So the farmer called the sheriff again and said, "Your signs are doing no good. Is it all right for me to put up my own sign?"

The exasperated sheriff was happy to get rid of him: "Sure thing, put up your own sign." And indeed, the sheriff got no more calls from the farmer.

Three weeks later, the sheriff drove out to the farmer's house to see how the farmer had solved the problem. He couldn't miss the farmer's sign. It was a whole sheet of plywood. And written in large letters were the bold words:

SLOW: NUDIST RESORT

So the town drunk is weaving up the steps to the local whorehouse. The madam sees him coming and, knowing that none of her girls will put up with him but not wanting to disappoint a customer, hurriedly puts a blow-up fuckdoll in the attic room and comes to greet him. He heads up for his Special Treat, weaving and banging into walls, but she hears the attic door shut, and figures there should be some peace for a while but almost immediately, he comes staggering back down the stairs. Um, wasn't she satisfactory? Asks the madam hesitantly. Belching, the drunk answers Well, I don't know - I bit her on the tit and she farted and flew out the window!

Finally the Jameson rep gets up, goes over to the bar and brings back    three more Paddies.

What Married People Do

A man and a woman--she a good-looking redhead--found themselves assigned to the same sleeping compartment on an overnight train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper bunk and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the woman reached up and tapped on the upper bunk.

"I'm terribly sorry to wake you, sir, but I'm awfully cold. Could you pop over to the closet and get me another blanket?"

"I have a another idea," he replied. "Just for tonight, would you like to pretend we're married?"

"Wow!" she giggled. "That's a great idea!"

"Good," he replied, turning back over. "Go and get your own damned blanket."

Football (soccer) legend Denis Law was awarded the CBE in this year's hnours list. After the award, a television interviewer asked him "If the Manchester United team you played for in the sixties and seventies were to take on today's Manchester United team, who do you think would win?"

Denis answered "Oh, me and the lads I played with between forty and fifty years ago would definitely win, though it might be a bit close; say, one-nil."

"Why do you think it would be close?"

"Well, most of us are nearly eighty years old now."

An elderly gentleman and a very attractive young lady are sharing a sleeping compartment on a train for a very long journey. They talk about many things, Sport, Politics, Religion and are getting on very well. Eventually they get on to discussing Sex and Morals.

The man asks the young lady if she would go to bed with him for £10 million pounds.
She quickly replies "Why yes."

He then asks would she go to bed with him for £1 million pounds.
Again but with a little hesitation she says "YES."

He asks a third time. Would she go to bed with him for £10 ?

With no hesitation she replies "NO! What sort of girl do you think I am?"

He replies "We have already established that. All we are doing now is haggling over the price!"

"It was some kind of Gutton ... Guten ..." he says.

"Not an old Gutenberg, by any chance?" says the bible collector, horrified. "A bible like that would fetch 3 or 4 million at an auction!"

"Well that's OK then," says the friend of the bible collector. "This one was probably worthless. Some idiot called Martin Luther had scribbled comments all over the damn margins."

If we're going to have political jokes…

A passenger gets off the Air India flight to Belfast, and wanders through the city sleepily in search of a hotel. He comes to an area where all the kerbstones are painted red white and blue, in an attractive example of local folk art, and stops to look around. Two men detach themselves from a wall and come over to him.

"Where you from, laddie?" one asks him.

"India, actually," he says, preparing to ask them for directions, but the other one interrupts -

"What part of India?"

"Delhi."

Both of the men go purple with rage, and roar, "That's LONDON Delhi!!!"

Not really Steve - highly apposite.
Reminds me of a Jewish customer I had when I was an electrician in London.
He went on a business trip to Belfast at the height of the troubles and was stopped one night at an unofficial roadblock manned by three armed, masked men
He was asked, "Are you a Catholic or a Protestant?"
He replied, "I'm a Jew".
After a long pause, they asked him, "Ah, but are you a Catholic Jew or a Protestant Jew?"

A Change Of Vows

During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the pastor with an unusual offer.

"Look," he said in a whisper. "I'll give you $100 if you'll change the wedding vows. When you get to me and the part where I'm to promise to 'love, honor and obey' and 'forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,' I'd appreciate it if you'd just leave that part out." He passed the minister a $100 bill and walked away satisfied.

On the day of the wedding, the minister got to the part of the ceremony where the vows are exchanged. But when it came time for the groom's vows, the pastor looks the young man in the eye and says, "Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not ever even look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?"

The groom gulped and looked around, and said in a tiny voice, "I do."

When there was a brief musical interlude, the groom leaned toward the pastor and hissed, "I thought we had a deal!"

The pastor put the $100 bill into his hand and whispered back, "She made me a much better offer."

Newfie Airliner

An airliner is coming into land at an airport obscured by fog. Visibility is practically nil, the ILS system is on the blink, so the newfie pilot has to land on wits alone.

"Flaps, check," he says to the co-pilot, "Landing Gear, check. Altitude, check. Right, we're going in. Hold on."

The plane lands and comes to a screeching, grinding halt; just short of the edge of the runway. "Holy Cow!" exclaims the pilot, "This must be the shortest runway I've ever landed on!"

The newfie co-pilot looks left and right and says "Yeah, and about the widest, too …"

Uncles reminded me of another one.....    A mafia boss lost his brother , and though a criminal like himself,   wanted him remembered in a favourable light at the funeral , so he offered the priest a large contribution to the building fund , if he would only say at the funeral that his brother was an angel.   The priest took the money, and the day of the funeral came, and the surviving brother sat on the front pew. The minister began.............we have here the body of a man, who in his life, was a violent , deceptive, thieving , and adulterous rebel........but compared to his brother.....he was an angel....

Financial Topics Explained

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35, and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."

The villagers rounded up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys. Then they never saw the man or his assistant, only monkeys everywhere!

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works.

A Dumb Blonde?

A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, that the game is a lot of fun. "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500." This catches the blonde's attention and, to keep him quiet, she agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question: "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a $5 bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?"

The lawyer uses his laptop, searches all references. He uses the Airphone; he searches the Web and even the Library of Congress. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After a good hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the blonde and hands her $500. The blonde takes the $500 and goes back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes her up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?" The blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.

So the guy says to the doctor: [deep, husky bark]"It's my voice. It's been like this since I was a teenager. People stare at me when I speak; my friends all take the mickey out of me; I can't stand it any longer. Is there anything you can do doctor?"

The doctor says: "Do you know, I've read about this and I've an idea what it might be. I'll have to carry out an examination – drop your trousers."

The chap drops his trousers, and an enormous penis flops out and thumps onto the desk. "Ah," says the doctor. "Just what I thought. Your enormous member is pulling your internal organs down, and puting strain on your vocal cords, which is affecting your voice. It's easy to put right – just a simple transplant operation. Do you want to go ahead with it?"

"Oh, yes please," barks the relieved patient. "Anything to put an end to this."

Two months later the man walks back into the surgery. "Doctor, it's incredible," he says. "You were right. Listen to me – my voice sounds normal. No one takes the mickey, I sound just like everyone else, I can join in karaoke – in fact I'm joining a choir. Life is fantastic.

"The only problem now is that my wife is threatening to leave me. She says that since my operation I can't satisfy her any more. Is there anything you can do about that?"

"No," barks the doctor. "There isn't."

Was told this by an old Socialist, the first man we ever recorded - he apologised in case we would think it was racist - it turned out to be one of the best anti-racists I have ever heard.
A West Indian was told by his doctor that he only had a few months to live; after he had taken in the news, the doctor asked him would he think about donating his heart for transplant.
He thought for while and finally said he would, if he was told who the recipient would be.
The doctor, after a long argument, finally agreed, so the man takes the address and goes off to find person who was to get his heart.
He tracks him down and knocks on the door, which was eventually answered bu a huge skinhead in a stained Union Jack Vest, rings piercing his nose, both ears and his eyebrows, with a display of Swastika tattoos on his forehead, neck and up both arms.
"What the **** do you want?"
Timidly the little West Indian says, "to tell you the truth, I've been told I only have a few months to live and I've decides to donate my heart for transplant - you're going to get it".
"Thank **** for that; I thought you were going to move in next door".

Estate Planning

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.

He toiled at it for years, until finally his father was on his deathbed--Dan would inherit a fortune! He decided he needed a wife with which to share the vast estate.

One evening at an investment meeting he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man," he said to her, "but in just a few weeks, my father, who's a widower, will die, and I'll inherit a hundred million dollars."

Impressed, the woman accepted his business card. And just three short days later, she became his stepmother.

Women are really much better at estate planning than men.

Breast Enlargement the Easy Way

A flat-chested young lady went to a popular surgeon known for "no scars" about enlarging her breasts.

To her shock, Dr. Cutter advised her, "Every day after your shower, rub your chest and say, "Scooby doobie doobies, I want bigger boobies!" He guaranteed success and, figuring she had nothing to lose, she did what he told her to do faithfully for several months.

To her utter amazement she grew terrific D-cup boobs! One morning she was running late, got on the bus, and in a panic realized she had forgotten her morning ritual.

Frightened she might lose her lovely boobs if she didn't recite the little rhyme, she stood right there in the middle aisle of the bus, closed her eyes and said quietly, "Scooby doobie doobies, I want bigger boobies."

She apparently didn't say it quietly enough, though, since a guy sitting nearby looked at her and asked "Oh! Are you a patient of Dr. Cutter?"

"Yes I am," she said, a bit embarrassed. "How did you know?"

He winked and whispered, "Hickory dickory dock. . ."

Two Cannibals

Two cannibals, a father and son, were elected by the tribe to go out and get something to eat. They walked deep into the jungle and waited by a path.

Before long, a little old man came by. The son said, "Oh Dad, there's one!"

"No," said the father. "There's not enough meat on that one to even feed the dogs. We'll just wait."

A little while later, along came a very large man. The son said, "Hey dad, he's plenty big enough."

"No," the father said. "We'd all die of a heart attack from the fat on that one. We'll just wait."

About an hour later, an absolutely gorgeous woman came past them. The son said, "Now there's nothing wrong with that one, Dad. Let's eat her!"

"No," said the father. "We will not eat her either."

"Why not?" asked the son. "She's not too skinny, she's not too fat. She's just right!"

"Right," the father replied. "We're going to take her back alive and eat your mother."

A group of golfers were putting on the green when suddenly a ball dropped in their midst. One of the party winked at the others and shoved the ball into the hole with his foot. Seconds later a very fat player puffed on to the green, quite out of breath.

"Excuse me," he said as he looked around distractedly. "Have you seen my ball?"

"Yeah, it went in the hole," the joker answered with straight-faced alacrity.

"Really?!" The fat guy said, unbelieving.

"Take a look," the jokester said, pointing at the hole as the rest of his foursome looked in in amusement.

The guy waddled over to the hole, looked in, reached down and picked up his ball. His astonishment was plain to see.

"Woo hoo!!" he exclaimed.

Then he turned, spotted his partner, and shouted out at the top of his lungs, "Hey, Sam, guess what?! I got an eleven!"

That British Empire joke reminded me of another I learned from Isaac Asimov:

In the good old days of the Empire, a civil servant and his family moved to Khartoum. As the man and his son explored the city, they found a magnificent equestrian statue of "Chinese" Gordon. The father lovingly described Gordon's patriotism, his faith, his bravery, and how he was regarded as a martyr and a hero by all the Empire.

The boy was impressed, and became enamored of the statue. He often went to visit and admire it. Years later, as the family was about to be transferred elsewhere, the father went out to discover his son paying the statue a respectful farewell. He was gratified and moved by his son's reverence for this great hero of the British Empire.

As they left, his son said, "Father, there is something I have always wondered about that statue."

"What is it, son?"

"Who is that man who sits on Gordon?"

Teenagers are like Cats

How so? Well, consider:

Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name.

No matter what you do for them, it is not enough. Indeed, all humane efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot.

You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being, and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents.

Even if you tell jokes as well as David Letterman, neither your cat nor your teen will ever crack a smile.

No cat nor teenager shares your taste in music.

Cats and teenagers can lie on the living-room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing.

Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did.

Cats and teenagers yawn in exactly the same manner, communicating that ultimate human ecstasy -- a sense of complete and utter boredom.

No cat nor any teenager has ever improved anyone's furniture.

Cats that are free to roam outside sometimes have been known to return in the middle of the night to deposit a dead animal in your bedroom. Teenagers are not above that sort of behavior.

Thus, if you must raise teenagers, the best sources of advice are not other parents, but veterinarians. It is also a good idea to keep a guidebook on cats at hand at all times. And remember above all else, put out the food and do not make any sudden moves in their direction. When they make up their minds, they will finally come to you for some affection and comfort, and it will be a triumphant moment for all concerned.

Two Golf Twosomes

John and Hy were out playing golf on a nice Saturday afternoon. They were getting frustrated, though, because the two women who were playing right in front of them were quite slow and were holding up the men's game.

"Don't they know they're supposed to let us play through?" John asked.

"I guess not," Hy replied.

"I'm going to go ask them if we can play through," John said. "Enough is enough."

He started walking over toward the women, but as he got close, he suddenly turned around and came back, white as a ghost.

"Oh God," John said to his friend, "This is awful. You're going to have to ask them!"

"Why?" Hy asked.

"One of them is my wife, and the other is my mistress!" John said, still shaking.

"No sweat," Hy said -- but just as he was getting close, he turned around and came running back too.

"What happened?" John asked.

"Well, let me tell you," Hy said. "It's a small world!"

Airline Travel: The Next Generation

Airlines are charging "extras" now for thing that
used to be included as a matter of course. Here's a
taste of the future:

- - -

Attendant: Welcome aboard U.S. Airways, sir. May I see your ticket?

Passenger: Sure.

Attendant: You're in seat 12B. That will be $5, please!

Passenger: What for?

Attendant: For telling you where to sit.

Passenger: But I already knew where to sit.

Attendant: Nevertheless, we are now charging a seat locator fee of $5. It's the airline's new policy.

Passenger: That's the craziest thing I ever heard. I won't pay it.

Attendant: Sir, do you want a seat on this flight, or not?

Passenger: Yes, yes. All right, I'll pay. But the airline is going to hear about this.

Attendant: Thank you. My goodness, your carry-on bag looks heavy. Would you like me to stow it in the overhead compartment for you?

Passenger: That would be swell, thanks.

Attendant: No problem. Up we go, and done! That will be $10, please.

Passenger: What?

Attendant: The airline now charges a $10 carry-on assistance fee.

Passenger: This is extortion. I won't stand for it.

Attendant: Actually, you're right, you can't stand. You need to sit, And fasten your seat belt. We're about to push back from the gate. But, first I need that $10.

Passenger: No way!

Attendant: Sir, if you don't comply, I will be forced to call the air marshal -- and you really don't want me to do that.

Passenger: Why not? Is he going to shoot me?

Attendant: No, but there's a $50 air-marshal hailing fee.

Passenger: Oh, all right, here, take the $10. I can't believe this.

Attendant: Thank you for your cooperation, sir. Is there anything else I can do for you?

Passenger: Yes. It's stuffy in here, and my overhead fan doesn't seem to work. Can you fix it?

Attendant: Your overhead fan is not broken, sir. Just insert two quarters into the Overhead coin slot for the first five minutes.

Passenger: The airline is charging me for cabin air?

Attendant: Of course not, sir. Stagnant cabin air is provided free of charge. It's the circulating air that costs 50 cents.

Passenger: I don't have any quarters. Can you make change for a dollar?

Attendant: Certainly, sir! Here you go!

Passenger: But you've given me only three quarters for my dollar.

Attendant: Yes, there's a change-making fee of 25 cents.

Passenger: For cryin' out loud. All I have left is a lousy quarter? What the heck can I do with this?

Attendant: Hang onto it, it'll probably come in handy later.

Passenger (finally getting suspicious): What for?

Attendant: You may need it later for the lavatory.

Chosen for Jury Duty

A man who was chosen for jury duty very much wanted to be dismissed from serving. He tried every excuse he could think of but none of them worked.

On the day of the trial he decided to give it one more shot. As the trial was about to begin he asked if he could approach the bench.

"Your Honor," he said, "I must be excused from this trial because I am prejudiced against the defendant."

"Oh?" the judge said.

"Yes!" the man replied. "I took one look at the man in the blue suit with those beady eyes and that dishonest face and I said 'He's a crook! He's guilty, guilty, guilty' So your Honor, I could not possibly stay on this jury!"

The judge replied, "Get back in the jury box. You are just the kind of juror we are looking for--a good judge of character."

"But your honor!" the man protested. "How can you say that?"

"Because," the judge said, "that man is the defendant's lawyer."

The Fire at the University

Three professors -- a physicist, a chemist, and a statistician -- are at a department head meeting when a fire breaks out in a wastebasket.

They all have different methods of dealing with the emergency.

The physicist says, "I know what to do! We must cool down the materials until their temperature is lower than their ignition temperature and then the fire will go out."

The chemist says, "No! No! I know what to do! We must cut off the supply of oxygen so that the fire will go out due to lack of one of the reactants."

As the physicist and the chemist debate what to do, the statistician runs around the room lighting more fires.

"What are you doing?!" the physicist and the chemist scream.

The statistician replies, "We're going to need a larger sample size."

A doctor, a lawyer, and a physicist were having a drink, and the topic of conversation was: Is it better to have a wife, or a mistress?
A wife, says the doctor: there are various diseases you are somewhat more likely to get from a mistress.
A mistress, says the lawyer: then, if it doesn't work out, you don't have the agony of a divorce.
A wife *and* a mistress, says the physicist, because then, when your wife thinks you're with your mistress, and your mistress thinks you're with your wife, you can do *physics*.

The bartender says, "Listen, pal, I'm from St. Louis, and I won't appreciate it. The man sitting next to you is 265 pounds, and he's from St. Louis too. And the bouncer, that huge guy there, is also from St. Louis. So do you still want to tell that joke?"

"No," says the guy from Kansas City. "Not if I have to explain it three times."

Montana
Four women are driving across the country together, each one from a different state: Idaho, Nebraska, Montana, and California. Shortly after the trip begins, the woman from Idaho pulls potatoes from her bag and throws them out the window. "What are you doing?" asks the Nebraskan.

"We have so many of these things in Idaho, I'm sick of looking at them."

A moment later, the gal from Nebraska pulls ears of corn from her bag and tosses them from the window. "What are you doing?" asks the gal from Montana.

"We have so many of these things in Nebraska, I'm sick of looking at them."

Inspired, the Montanan opens the car door and kicks the Californian out.

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.
While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed up, they asked him.

St. Peter said, 'I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,' and he leaves.
The couple sat and waited, and waited. 9 weeks passed and the couple are still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if it didn't work out; could you get a divorce in heaven. After yet another month, St. Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled.
"Yes,' he informs the couple, 'you can get married in Heaven.'"Great!' said the couple, 'But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?' St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. 'What's wrong?' asked the frightened couple. "OH, COME ON!', St. Peter shouted, 'It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer?"

A Letter to God

A little boy wanted a bicycle very badly, but was told he couldn't have it because it would cost $100, and the family just didn't couldn't afford that in this bad economy.

He prayed for weeks, but nothing happened, so he decided God just couldn't hear his tiny little voice, so he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.

When the postal authorities received the letter to "God, USA", they decided to send it to the President. And sure enough, it ended up being one of the sample letters that reached President Obama's inbox.

The president was so touched that he put a $5 bill in the envelope and sent it to the little boy. The president thought that this would appear to be a lot of money to such a young child.

The little boy was delighted with the $5 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God:

    Dear God,

    Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason the incompetents at the post office routed it through Washington D.C., and that damned Democrat Obama took $95 in taxes.

    Sincerely,
    Timmy

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from SalfordUniversity UK.
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Pete approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Pete worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to face Pete and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Pete stood frozen, thinking he might be attacked. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away. Pete never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later, Pete was walking through Chester Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son David were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Pete, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at Pete.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Pete could not help thinking that this was the same elephant. He summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared at it in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Petes' legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Probably wasn't the same elephant.

An airplane was about to crash. There were 4 passengers on board, but only 3 parachutes. The 1st passenger said "I am Stephen Curry, the best NBA basketball player. The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can't afford to die." So he took the 1st pack and left the plane. The 2nd passenger, Donald Trump, said, "I am the newly-elected US President, and I am the smartest President in American history, so my people don't want me to die." He took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane. The 3rd passenger, the Pope, said to the 4th passenger, a 10 year old schoolboy, "My son, I am old and don't have many years left, you have more years ahead so I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute." The little boy said, "That's okay, Your Holiness, there's a parachute left for you. America 's smartest President took my schoolbag."

Shortly after I took off on an Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to Boston a few weeks ago, air hostess nervously announced that the catering department made a terrible mistake. A big mixup she said. Although 226 passengers on board they received only 80 dinners. She apologised but said that anybody who is kind enough to give up their meal to somebody who is hungry would receive free unlimited drinks for the remainder of the flight. The next announcement came 2 hours later when she said, ' If anybody is hungry we still have 80 dinners available.

Beautiful young woman is sitting on the bus with her tiny baby. She takes out her breast to feed the child, but he shakes his head vigorously and refuses to latch on.

Trying to entice him to feed, she says "Now you'd better have this otherwise I'll give it to the man in the next seat!"

She tries again but still the babe shakes his head and refuses.

"Now I won't tell you again, either you have your milk or the man in the next seat will get it!"

This goes on for a while but the baby adamantly refuses every time, despite her threats.

Eventually, the man in the next seat exclaims, "Will you please get your baby to make its bloody mind up? I should have got off three stops ago!"

I was reminded of this old chestnut about Vermonters, but you can substitute anyone. Anyway, two of them went bear hunting in the woods. They came to a fork in the road and were discussing which way to take it when they noticed the sign, which said Bear Left. So they went home.

Like fantasy football gambling, it looks like NASCAR will support a new gambling scheme like wheel of fortune giving prizes to viewers at home. The trick is betting on the car with the fewest picks and I got it.
