I Found It
guys were approaching the first tee. The first guy goes into his golf bag
to get a ball and says to his friend, "Hey, why don't you try this ball?"
He draws a green golf ball out of his bag. "You can't lose it."
His friend replies, "What do you mean you can't lose it?!"
man replies, "I'm serious, you can't lose it. If you hit it into the
woods, it makes a beeping sound, if you hit it into the water it produces
bubbles, and if you hit it on the fairway, smoke comes up in order for you
to find it."
Obviously, his friend doesn't believe him, but he shows him all the
possibilities until he is convinced. The friend says, "Wow! That's
incredible! Where did you get that ball?!"
The man replies, "I found it."

Black & Brown!
Johnny had been bringing his drawings home from kindergarten every day
since he started a month ago. Each day his mother admired the pictures and
hung them on the refrigerator. One thing started bothering her.
Little Johnny only used black and browns for his drawings. Fearing a
problem and not wanting it to get worse, she decided to take him to a
The psychologist delicately went to work. He gave Little Johnny a battery
of psychological tests. He chatted with Little Johnny. Everything seemed
perfectly normal. Every day for two weeks, the tests continued. Yet
everyday, Little Johnny continued to bring home drawings in only blacks
Frustrated at not being able to get to the root of the problem and fearful
that something was terribly wrong, the child psychologist decided to give
Little Johnny some paper and a box of crayons and observe what happened.
Little Johnny opened the box of crayons and said, "Oh, Boy! A new box of
crayons! At school we only have old boxes. The only ones left in mine are
black and brown!"

Finally, Paul decided that it would serve his best interest to walk a different
route, but also take some self-defense classes so this wouldn't happen again.
He joined a karate class and soon was doing very well with it.
So, one day, on the way home from work, Paul confidently decided to take his old
route home and, sure enough, there they were. He walked up to them and the
The next afternoon, Paul went to his karate class with a black eye, a broken
nose and a busted lip.
His instructor was shocked and asked for an explanation.
"Well," explained Paul, "I took my old way home last night so I could beat those
guys up who used to steal my money."
His instructor said, "What happened?"
Paul replied, "They jumped me before I could get my socks and shoes off!"

stumbles out of a bar and he makes his way into the cemetery behind the
tavern. He walks right to the edge of a freshly dug grave, loses his
balance and falls in.
There's a puddle of water in the hole, and he spends the rest of the night
yelling, "Help me, I'm cold! Someone help me, I'm cold!"
At closing time, another drunk walks behind the bar and hears the noise.
He gets to the open grave, looks down and says, "Of course you're cold,
you idiot, you kicked all the dirt off yourself!"

I Need A Push
A man and
his wife are in bed asleep. Around 3am they are woken by the sound of
someone knocking on their front door downstairs.
The guy gets up, goes to the window and opens it, only to look out to
pitch blackness. "Who's out there," he yells.
A voice from below calls out, "I need a push".
Afraid, the guy says, "Get lost before I call the cops! It's 3 o'clock in
the morning!" and slams the window.
His wife rolls over and says, "Listen, remember when our kids got stuck in
their car late one night, and that couple helped them to get it started
again? Wouldn't you want to do the same for someone else, regardless of
The guy thinks about this for a while and heads downstairs to lend the man
a hand. He opens the front door, again to pitch blackness, and yells out,
"Hey! Do you still need a push? Where are you?"
"Yes, I do," says the voice from the darkness. "I'm over here on the

wealthy businessman choked on a fish bone at a restaurant, he was
fortunate that a doctor was seated at a nearby table.
Springing up, the doctor skillfully removed the bone and saved his life.
As soon as the fellow had calmed himself and could talk again, he thanked
the surgeon enthusiastically and offered to pay him for his

"Okay," replied the doctor. "How about half of what you'd have offered

"Wasn't for me, after all," he said.
She crawled out of bed, pulled on a robe and started downstairs.

One of These Days
Friday night I drove my wife to the station for the train to Weimar, CA,
so she could visit her sister who was ill. Ten minutes later, my sister
arrived by train from Sacramento to manage our household over the weekend.
On Sundays this procedure worked in reverse with my sister departing by
train ten minutes before my wife arrived.
One evening after my sister left and while I awaited my wife's arrival, a
porter sauntered over.
"Mister," he said, "you are sure some man! But one of these days you are
goin' to get caught!"

Teaching A Lesson
daughter had adopted a stray cat. To my distress, he began to use the back
of our new sofa as a scratching post. "Don't worry," my now ex-wife
reassured me. "I'll have him trained in no time."
I watched for several days as she patiently "trained" our new pet.
Whenever the cat scratched, she would deposit him outdoors to teach him a
The cat learned quickly. For the next 16 years, whenever he wanted to go
outside, he scratched the back of the sofa.

around Harvard was that there was a graduate math course whose final
always consisted of, "Make up an appropriate final exam for this course
and answer it. You will be graded on both parts."
Then one year, a student answered as follows: The exam is: "Make up an
appropriate final exam for this course and answer it. You will be
graded on both parts."
The answer is: "Make up an appropriate final exam for this course and
answer it. You will be graded on both parts."
His reasoning was that since that was the best exam the professor could
write, it certainly ought to be good enough for a student. He got an A.
The professor specifically prohibited that answer from then on.

With a Dog
leading the Friday evening services, the Rabbi noticed a member of the
congregation, Bernie, walk in with a St. Bernard dog. The Rabbi,
horrified, asked the Cantor to continue the service and went to talk to
Bernie. Rabbi: "What are doing here with a dog?"
Bernie: "The dog came here to pray."
"Oh, come on." says the Rabbi. "I don't believe you. You are just fooling
around; that's not a proper thing to do in temple."
"Honest," says Bernie, "Its true!"
"Ok", says the Rabbi (thinking he would call Bernie's bluff), "then show
me what the dog can do."
"OK" says Bernie nodding to the dog...The dog proceeds to open up the
barrel under his neck and removes a yarmulke, a tallis (puts them on his
head) and prayer book and actually starts saying prayers in Hebrew! The
Rabbi is so shocked he listens for a full 15 minutes.
When the Rabbi regains his composure, he is so impressed with the quality
of the praying he says to Bernie. "Do you think your dog would consider
going to Rabbinical school????"
Bernie, throwing up his hands in disgust says, "YOU TALK TO HIM! He wants
to be a doctor!"

The New Job
3 unemployed factory workers heard that a large food company was enlarging
and needed more staff. So they went downtown to see if they could get
themselves a job.
After filling out their applications, each one was interviewed and each
one managed to get hired. As they were waiting to be assigned their new
duties, a foreman came by and spoke to the hiring boss.
The foreman told the boss that he didn't think it was such a good idea as
one of the workers had snapped for no apparent reason at his last job.
Also a second was said to have had cracked up after severe mental stress.
The third, he believed was their father who he felt was a bit odd but he
couldn't put his finger on it.
The hiring boss reassured the foreman and said that they would start on
something easy and after a week, the company would re-assess them to see
if they would be kept on.
The foreman reluctantly agreed and asked the boss where he thought they

mightiest of all jungle animals?"
Fast as lightning, the elephant snatches up the lion with his trunk, slams
him against a tree half a dozen times, the lion feeling like it'd been run
over by a safari wagon. The elephant then stomped on the lion till it
looked like a corn tortilla, and ambled away.
The lion hollered after the elephant, "Hey! Just because you don't know
the answer, you don't have to get so angry!"

The second guy thinks this is a great idea, so the two pool their money
and buy everything they'll need - a tower, an elastic cord, insurance,

people gather to watch them at work.

looked up to see where it came from in time to see a young woman looking
"Is this yours?" he asked.
She said, "Yes, could you bring it up?" and the man agreed.
On arrival she was profuse in her thanks and offered the man a drink. As
she was very attractive he agreed. Shortly afterwards she said, "I'm about
to have dinner. There's plenty; would you like to join me?"
