Parade of Jokes For ThanksGiving
A fellow evidently under the influence was trying desperately to catch a
train back to his suburban home. Three times he got on the wrong train.
Each time he was told that he would have to take another train.
When he boarded a fourth train he slumped down in a seat beside a
clergyman, whose eyes, ears and nose told him that this new passenger
had been drinking too much. He told our besotted friend, "Brother, may I
tell you that you are traveling the rough and rocky road to damnation."
To which the drunk replied, "Don't tell me I'm on the wrong train

The cat is despicable. She doesn't do any tricks and never comes when
you call and I've been there and I know she can hear you. We need to
It's time to get rid of the cat.
Before the cat's arrival, meals were very festive times. I would sit and
stare attentively at your lips, trembling slightly and drooling. You
would play the game of pretending to be cross and demand that I leave
the area, but whenever you cooked dinner your children would slip me
food under the table.
Now, though, the cat is allowed to jump on the table - actually
physically walk on the table! You don't yell at the cat, you just pick
her up and put her back on the floor, and I know you don't see it, but
she always gives me a haughty look as she walks past me.
And speaking of meals, I have always been satisfied to eat the gritty
pellets of meat by-products you bring home in the giant bags, right?
Have I ever once, ever, failed to finish a meal? But now I find out that
the cat is being served lobster and salmon and crab - and she never
consumes all of it! This means there are little containers of delectable
snacks lying around and how can I be blamed for making sure they get
eaten? Why do you get so mad? As long as the pet food is going to the
pets, isn't that what's important?
Speaking of sanitation, do you realize that the cat goes to the bathroom
in the house? And not in the drinking basins like you do, but in a
sandbox in the basement. What are we going to say if some woman brings
her baby over to play in the sandbox and the cat has been using it as a
toilet? I used to police the thing for you, but you put it up out of my
reach for some reason.
I'm not the only one who believes the cat is an evil person. Here's a
note from the hamster:
Please tell cat to stop staring at me while I work.
Department of Rodent Wheels
I also tried to get a note from the fish, but apparently it believes
that everything happening outside its bowl is some kind of reality - TV
I don't understand why the cat is allowed up on the bed and I'm not. I
am far more cuddly than any stupid cat. I think her purring sounds
unhealthy and may be a sign of tuberculosis.
And why doesn't she ever get a bath? She smells like saliva from licking
her paws - you'd never catch me licking such ridiculous places. I often
smell wonderful from rolling in road kill, yet you give me baths all the
And speaking of sleeping, sometimes I'll be taking a nap and she'll come
right up and lie down beside me. Usually I'm too tired to do anything
about it, but then later the other dogs smell her on me and crack a lot
of jokes at my expense.
So, not to exaggerate, but the cat has brought the family to complete
ruin. I'm sorry I have to be the one to bring it to your attention, but
now that I have, I think we can all agree that we should go back to the
way it was, when I was the #1 pet.
Sincerely, The Dog
Then....and now. (sadly, not that much a joke)

In retrospect, lighting the match was my big mistake. But I was only
trying to retrieve the gerbil," Eric Tomaszewski told the bemused
doctors in the Severe Burns Unit of Salt Lake City Hospital.
Tomaszewski, and his homosexual partner Andrew "Kiki" Farnum, had been
admitted for emergency treatment after a felching session had gone
seriously wrong. "I pushed a cardboard tube up his rectum and slipped
Raggot, our gerbil, in." he explained. "As usual, Kiki shouted out
`Armageddon' , my cue that he'd had enough.
I tried to retrieve Raggot but he wouldn't come out again, so I peered
into the tube and struck a match, thinking the light might attract him."
At a hushed press conference, a hospital spokesman described what
"The match ignited a pocket of intestinal gas and flame shot out the
tube, igniting Mr. Tomaszewski' s hair and severely burning his face. It
also set fire to the gerbil's fur and whiskers which in turn ignited a
larger pocket of gas further up the intestine, propelling the rodent out
like a cannonball." Tomaszewski suffered second degree burns and a
broken nose from the impact of the gerbil, while Farnum suffered first
and second degree burns to his anus and lower intestinal tract.

A modern day cowboy has spent many days crossing the desert without
His horse has already died of thirst. He's crawling through the
sand,certain that he has breathed his last, when all of a sudden, he
sees an object sticking out of the sand several yards ahead of him. He
crawls to the object, pulls it out of the sand, and discovers what looks
to be an old brief case. He opens it and out pops a genie.
But this is no ordinary genie. She is wearing an Internal Revenue
Service ID badge and a dull gray dress. There's a calculator in her
pocketbook. She has a pencil tucked behind one ear.
"Well, cowboy," says the genie... "You know how I work. You have
"I'm not falling for this." Says the man. "I'm not going to trust
