Thursday's not the news

Johnny was at his first day of school. The
teacher advised the class to
start the day with the pledge of allegiance, and
instructed them to put
their right hands over their hearts and repeat
after him.
He looked around the room as he started the
recitation,"I pledge allegiance to the flag..." When his
eyes fell on Johnny, he noticed Johnny's hand over the right cheek of his
"Johnny, I will not continue till you put you
hand over your heart."
Johnny replied, "It is over my heart."
After several attempts to get Johnny to put his
hand over his heart,
the teacher asked, "Why do you think that is your

she picks me up, pats me
here, and says, 'Bless your little heart,' and my
Grandma wouldn't

A vacationer e-mailed a seaside hotel to ask its location. "It's only a
stone's throw away from the beach," he was told.
"But how will I recognize it?" asked the man.
Back came the reply: "It's the one with all the broken windows."


When a woman in my office became engaged, a colleague offered her some
advice. "The first ten years are the hardest."
"How long have you been married?" I asked.
"Ten years," she replied.

New to the United States, I was eager to meet people. So one day
I struck up a conversation with the only other woman in the gym
Pointing to two men playing racquetball in a nearby court, I said
to her, "There's my husband." Then I added, "The thin one--not
the fat one."
After a slightly uncomfortable silence she replied, "And that's
my husband - the fat one."

Weird Fact of the Day:
Up to 75% of people who try cocaine will become addicted to it. Only one out of four people who try to quit will be able to without help.

A young couple invited their pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were
in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what
they were having.
"Goat," the little boy replied.
"Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure
about that?"
"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'Might as
well have the old goat for dinner today as any other day.'"


Murphy and his wife, a middle-aged couple, went for a stroll in
the park. They sit down on a bench to rest for awhile. Soon they
overhear voices coming from a secluded spot nearby. Suddenly Mrs Murphy
realizes that a young man is about to propose. Not wanting to be
eavesdropping during such an intimate moment, she gently nudges her
husband and whispers, "Whistle, to let that young couple know that
someone can hear them."
To which Murphy replies, "Whistle? Why should I whistle? Nobody
whistled to warn me?"

On the first evening back from overseas, my girl-friends' s
understanding parents left us alone in the living room. Naturally, we
did not talk all the time.
In the midst of a kiss, I noticed her little sister in her
nightgown watching us from the doorway. "If you will be a good girl
go to bed, I will give you a quarter," I said to her.
Without taking the bribe or saying a word, she ran off but was
very soon back again. "Here is a dollar," she said. "I wanna watch."

Golf Chips
Golfer: Well, I have never played this badly before!
Caddy: I didn't realize you had played before, sir.

Golfer: Caddy, Do you think my game is improving?
Caddy: Oh yes, sir! You miss the ball much closer than you used to.

Golfer: Please stop checking your watch all the time, caddy. It's
Caddy: This isn't a watch, sir. It's a compass.

Golfer: Caddy, do you think it is a sin to play golf on Sunday?
Caddy: The way you play, sir, it's a crime any day of the week!

Golfer: This golf is a funny game.
Caddy: It's not supposed to be.

Judge: Do you understand the nature of an oath?
Boy: Do I? I'm your caddie, remember!

Golfer: That can't be my ball, caddy. It looks far too old.
Caddy: It's been a long time since we started, sir.

Golfer: That's good for one long drive and a putt.
Caddy (after ball travels only one meter): And now for one hell of a

Friendly golfer (to player searching for lost ball): What sort of a ball
Caddie (butting in): A brand new one -- never been properly hit yet!

Golfer: Caddiemaster, that boy isn't even eight years old.
Caddiemaster: Better that way, sir. He probably can't count past ten.
Dear Abby,
I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice on
what could be a crucial decision. I've suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs... Phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with the girls a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them." I always stay awake to look out for her taxi coming home, but she always walks down the drive, although I can hear a car setting off, as if she has gotten out of the car round the corner. Why? Maybe she wasn't in a taxi? I once picked her cell phone up just to see what time it was and she went berserk and screamed that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her. Anyway, I have never broached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. I decided I was going to park my Harley Davidson Lowrider next to the garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the whole street when she comes home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my Harley, that I noticed that the rocker boxes on my engine seem to be leaking a little oil.
Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the

Two cowboys were sitting in a bar when one asked his friend
if he had heard of the new sex position called "rodeo".
His friend said, "No, what is it?"
"Well, you mount your wife from the back, reach around her
and cup her breasts with both hands. Then you say,
"Boy these are almost as nice as your sister's."
Then see if you can hang on for 8 seconds."

Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, ate growing in the woods.
A small tree begins to grow between them, and the beech says
to the birch, "Is that a son of a beech or a son of a birch?"
The birch says he cannot tell. Just then a woodpecker lands on the
The birch says, "Woodpecker, you are a tree expert. Can you tell
if that is a son of a beech or a son of a birch?"
The woodpecker takes a taste of the small tree. He replies, "It
is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch. It is however, the
best piece of ash I have ever put my pecker."

I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up
something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I
took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.
Why?" my daughter asked.
"Because it's been on the ground, you don't know where it's
been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied. At this
point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and
asked, Mommy, how do you know all this stuff?"
"Uh," I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's
on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you
be a Mommy."
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was
evidently pondering this new information.
"OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you
have to be the daddy."
"EXACTLY" I replied back with a big smile on my face and joy in
my heart.
When you're finished laughing, send this to a Mom.
