Two buddies are fishing, but they haven’t caught anything all day. Then, another fisherman walks by with a huge load of fish. They ask him “excuse me, but where did you get all those fish?”
The other fisherman replies,” If you just go down the stream until the water isn’t salty, there are a ton of hungry fish.”
They thank him and go on their way. 15 minutes later, one fisherman says to the other “fill the bucket up with water and see if the water is salty.”
He dips the bucket in the stream and drinks some. “Nope. Still salty.” 30 minutes later, he asks him to check again.
“Nope, still salty.” One our later they check again. “Nope. Still salty.”
“This isn’t good,” the fisherman finally says. “We have been walking for almost two hours and the water is still salty!”
“I know,” says the other. “And the bucket is almost empty!”
The man charged into the jewelry shop, slammed his fists angrily on the showcase, removed a wristwatch from his pocket and shook it under the nose of the owner. “You said this watch would last me a lifetime,” he yelled.
“Yeah,” admitted the owner. “But you looked pretty sick the day you bought it.”
Jeb and Jethro live in the hills, about 5 miles outside of town. Jeb asks Jethro to go in to town to pick up some lumber. Jethro walks the 5 miles to town to the local lumberyard.
“Jeb says we’re gonna need some 4 x 2’s” Jethro tells the yardman.
“Do you mean 2 x 4’s?” asks the yardman.
“Well, I don’t rightly know, I better go ask Jeb” says Jethro and walks the 10 miles to the hills and back to town.
“Jeb says we’re gonna need 2 x 4’s” Jethro tells the yardman.
“Now, how many 2 x 4’s will you need?” asks the yardman.
“Well, I don’t rightly know, I better go ask Jeb.” says Jethro, and again walks the 10 miles to the hills and back to town.
“Jeb says were gonna need about 40 of ’em” Jethro tells the yardman.
“Now, how long will you need them?” asks the yardman.
“Well, I don’t rightly know, I better go ask Jeb” says Jethro and yet again walks the 10 miles to the hills and back to town.
Upon returning Jethro says to the yardman, “Jeb says you better give ’em to us for a while . . . we’re gonna build a barn.”
Little Johnny was left to fix lunch.
When his mother returned with a friend, she noticed that Johnny had already strained the tea.
The two women then sipped their tea happily while having lunch.
“Was it hard finding the tea strainer in the kitchen?” Johnny’s mother asked.
“I couldn’t find it Ma, so I used the fly swatter,” he replied.
His mother nearly fainted, so Johnny hastily added:
“Don’t get excited, Ma, I used the old one!”
A retired man who volunteers to entertain patients in nursing homes and hospitals went to one local hospital in Brooklyn and took his portable keyboard along. He told some jokes and sang some funny songs at patients’ bedsides.
When he finished he said, in farewell, “I hope you get better.”
One elderly gentleman replied, “I hope you get better, too.”
It’s 2012 and it’s the Olympics in London .
A Scotsman, an Englishman and an Irishman want to get in, but they haven’t got tickets.
The Scotsman picks up a manhole-cover, tucks it under his arm and walks to the gate. “McTavish, Scotland,” he says, “Discus,” and in he walks.
The Englishman picks up a length of scaffolding and slings it over his shoulder. “Waddington-Smythe, England,” he says, “Pole vault,” and in he walks.
The Irishman looks around, picks up a roll of barbed wire and tucks it under his arm. “O’Malley, Ireland,” he says: “Fencing.”
A three-year-old had been told several times to get ready for bed. The last time his mom told him, she was every insistent. His response was, “Yes, Sir!” Since he was talking to his mother (and she is a woman), it was not expected of him to call her “Sir”.
“You would say, ‘yes sir,’ to a man, I am a lady, and you would say ‘Yes Ma’am,’ to a lady,” Mom said. To quiz him on is lesson; she then asked him, “What would you say to Daddy?”
“Yes Sir!” was the reply
“Then what would you say to Mama?”
“Yes, Ma’am!” he proudly answered.
“Good boy! Now what would you say to Grandma?”
He lit up and said, “Can I have a cookie?”
