Linguistics professor Michael Feldman. "It's very distinctive."

One finds the most romantic people at home improvement
centers. My son was helping a couple purchase a new door
for their home. After he asked what size they needed, the stumped
yelled clear across the store to his wife in home supplies, "Honey,
over here and see which one of these door you can fit through!"
A client brought a litter of golden retriever puppies
to my veterinary clinic for inoculations and worming.
As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under one
another in their box, I realized it would be difficult
to tell the treated ones from the rest. So, I turned
on the water faucet, wet my fingers, and moistened each
dog's head when I had finished.
After the fourth puppy, I noticed my talkative client
had grown silent. As I sprinkled the last pup's head,
the woman leaned forward and whispered, "I didn't know
they had to be baptized, too."
Did you hear that, since so many were being laid off, Coke executives

Two cowboys come upon an Indian lying on his stomach with his ear to the
One of the cowboys stops and says to the other, "You see that Indian?"
"Yeah," says the other cowboy.
"Look," says the first one, "he's listening to the ground. He can hear
things for miles in any direction."
Just then the Indian looks up. "Covered wagon," he says, "about two
miles away. Have two horses, one brown, one white. Man, woman, child,
household effects in wagon."
"Incredible!" says the cowboy to his friend. "This Indian knows how far
away they are, how many horses, what color they are, who is in the
wagon, and what is in the wagon. Amazing!"
The Indian looks up and says, "Ran over me about a half hour ago."
One time when Michigan State was playing UCLA in football, the score was
tied at 14 with only seconds to play. Duffy Daugherty, Michigan State's
coach, sent in place-kicker Dave Kaiser who booted a field goal that won
When the kicker returned to the bench, Daugherty said, "Nice
going, but you didn't watch the ball after you kicked it."
"That's right, Coach," Kaiser replied, "I was watching the
referee instead to see how he'd signal it. I forgot my contact lenses,
and I couldn't see the goal posts."
My husband was once employed in the printing division of a large
manufacturing firm. One morning, word came from the top that some
visiting VIPs would be touring the plant in just a few minutes.
All production was immediately shut down as employees scrambled to
quickly tidy up the work place.
When the appointed lookout yelled, "Here they come!" fifty fingers
that were poised over fifty machine start-up buttons pressed down in
unison and blew every fuse in the building.

It had been decided that the White House gates were getting old, and needed
to be replaced. 3 contractors were asked to give estimates.
First, a contractor from Chicago showed up and took careful measurements of
the size of the gate. The Secret Service agent that had been assigned to
find the contractor asked the man from Chicago what his estimate was.
He replied "$300 for each gate, and $100 profit, for a total of $700."
Second, a contractor from St. Louis arrived, and took lots of careful
measurements. When asked for his estimate, he replied "$400 for each gate,
and $100 profit for a total of $900."
Lastly, a contractor from New York was asked what his estimate was. Without
taking any measurements whatsoever, he replied "$2700."
The Secret Service agent asked him how he knew it would cost $2700 if he
didn't even take measurements.
The contractor from New York replied "Simple, $1000 for me, $1000 for you,
and we hire the guy from Chicago."
