Walking Through the Graveyard

A daring vacationer in Vienna is walking through a graveyard on Halloween when all of a sudden she hears music. No one is around, so she starts looking to see where it's coming from. She finally locates the source and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads, "Ludwig van Beethoven." Then she realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward.


Puzzled, she leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend to return with her. By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but it is also being played backward.


Curious, the ladies agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing and the expert concludes that the symphonies are in fact being played in reverse order.


By the next day the word spread and a huge group gathered around the grave to hear the Second Symphony being played backward. Just then the graveyard's caretaker approaches the group.


Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music.


"Oh, it's nothing to worry about," says the caretaker. "He's just decomposing."

Cleaning Up

A principal of a small middle school had a problem with a few of the older girls starting to use lipstick. When applying it in the bathroom they would then press their lips to the mirror and leave lip prints.

Before it got out of hand he thought of a way to stop it. He gathered all the girls together that wore lipstick and told them he wanted to meet with them in the ladies room at 2pm. They gathered at 2pm and found the principal and the school custodian waiting for them.

The principal explained that it was becoming a problem for the custodian to clean the mirror every night. He said he felt the ladies did not fully understand just how much of a problem it was and he wanted them to witness just how hard it was to clean.

The custodian then demonstrated. He took a long brush on a handle out of a box. He then dipped the brush in the nearest toilet, moved to the mirror and proceeded to remove the lipstick.

That was the last day the girls pressed their lips on the mirror.

Bill for Labor

A feisty 70-year-old woman had to call a furnace repairman. After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a $70 bill for labor.


"Labor charges!" she exclaimed. "It only took you five minutes."


The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every house call.


"Well, I want my remaining 55 minutes of labor," the lady responded, and she handed him a rake. The repairman spent the next 55 minutes in her yard bagging leaves.

Special Parrot

One day a man goes to a pet shop to buy a parrot. The assistant takes the man to the parrot section and asks the man to choose one. The man asks, ''How much is the yellow one?''


The assistant says, ''$2000.'' The man is shocked and asks the assistant why it's so expensive. 


The assistant explains, ''This parrot is a very special one. He knows typewriting and can type really fast.''


''What about the green one?'' the man asks.


The assistant says, ''He costs $5000 because he knows typewriting and can answer incoming telephone calls and takes notes.''


''What about the red one?'' the man asks.


The assistant says, ''That one's $10,000.''


The man says, ''What does HE do?''


The assistant says, ''I don't know, but the other two call him boss.''

Don’t Owe You Anything

The bartender asks the guy sitting at the bar, “What’ll you have?” The guy answers, “A scotch, please.”


The bartender hands him the drink, and says, “That’ll be five dollars,” to which the guy replies, “What are you talking about? I don’t owe you anything for this.”


A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, “You know, he’s got you there. In the original offer, which constitutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration.”


The bartender was not impressed, but says to the guy, “Okay, you beat me for a drink. But don’t ever let me catch you in here again.”


The next day, same guy walks into the bar. Bartender says, “What the heck are you doing in here? I can’t believe you’ve got the audacity to come back!”


The guy says, “What are you talking about? I’ve never been in this place in my life!” The bartender replies, “I’m very sorry, but this is uncanny. You must have a double.”


To which the guy replies, “Thank you. Make it a scotch.”

Jury Duty

My town takes jury selection very seriously.

So much so that when it sends questionnaires to prospective jurors, every question is expected to be answered in full, plain and simple sentences. No ifs, ands or buts about it.


This was evidenced by the juror's questionnaire I was sent.


It asked, "Do you speak, read and understand English? If no, explain."

One Wish Each

A salesman, an office manager, and their boss are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it...


POOF! A genie comes out. The genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one."


"Me first! Me first!" cries the office manager. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."


POOF! She's gone.


In astonishment, the salesman shouts: "Me next! Me next! I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, and the love of my life."


POOF! He's gone.


"Okay, you're up," the genie says to the boss.


The boss says: "I want those two back in the office after lunch."


** The Moral of the Story: **

Always let your boss have the first say.

Medical Exam

A woman went to the doctor's office where she was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she ran down the hall.


An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told Him her story. After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room.


The older doctor marched down the hallway to the back where the first doctor was and demanded, "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?!"


The new doctor continued to write on his clipboard and without looking up said, "Does she still have the hiccups?"

Use of the Car

A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him , “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your bible a little and get your hair cut and we’ll talk about it.”


After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss use of the car. They again went to the father’s study where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you’ve studied your bible diligently, but you didn’t get your hair cut!”


The young man waited a moment and replied, “You know Dad, I’ve been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair….”


To which his father replied… “Yes, and they WALKED every where they went!”

Bright Idea

Glenn and Scott are bungee-jumping one day when Glenn has a brainstorm, "You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico."


Scott agrees that it would be a great idea, so the two pool their money and buy everything they'll need - a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc.


They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work.


When everything is ready Glenn gives it a test jump. When he bounces at the end of the cord and comes back up, Scott notices that Glenn has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Scott isn't able catch him, so Glenn falls again, bounces, and then comes back up.


This time, Glenn is bruised and bleeding. Again, Scott misses him. Glenn goes down again and this time, he comes back pretty messed up - he's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious.


On the next attempt, Scott finally catches him and pulls him in. "What happened?" he asks. "Was the cord too long?"


Glenn catches his breath and replies, "No, the cord was fine, but tell me... what the heck is a piñata?"

Kermit Jagger

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her name plate that the teller's name is Patricia Whack. So, he says, "Ms. Whack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation."


Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow. The frog says, "$30,000."


The teller asks his name and the frog says that his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it is okay, he knows the bank manager.


Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has anything he can use as collateral. The frog says, "Sure, I have this," and produces a tiny pink porcelain elephant, about half an inch tall. Bright pink and perfectly formed.


Very confused, Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager and disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says, "There is a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what IS this?"


The bank manager looks back at her and says, "It's a knick knack, Patti Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a rolling stone."

Warm Milk

In a convent in Ireland , the 98-year-old Mother Superior lay dying. The Nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her last journey comfortable. 

They tried giving her warm milk to drink but she refused it.

One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen. Then, remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey that had been received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened it and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.


Back at Mother Superior's bed, they held the glass to her lips. The frail Nun drank a little, then a little more and before they knew it, she had finished the whole glass down to the last drop.

As her eyes brightened, the nuns thought it would be a good opportunity to have one last talk with their spiritual leader..

"Mother," the nuns asked earnestly, "Please give us some of your wisdom before you leave us"

She raised herself up in bed on one elbow, looked at them and said: "

October 14, 2014


A young man was hitchhiking down south and a farmer driving an old pickup truck stopped to give him a lift.

As they were driving, the farmer started bragging about how good the local moonshine whiskey was. The young man told the farmer that he didn’t drink very much, and that moonshine would probably be too strong for his tastes.


“Nonsense!” said the farmer. “You gotta try some.” He fished around behind him and finally produced a small jug. “Here,” he said, handing the jar to the lad. “Take a drink!”


“Oh, no thanks,” said the young man. “I really don’t think I care for any.”


“No, I insist,” pressed the farmer. “Have some.”


“No, thanks — really,” said the young man.


The farmer wasn’t going to take no for an answer. He stopped the truck and grabbed his shotgun from the rack in back. He pointed the gun at the lad and roared, “I said, take a drink!”


“Okay! Okay!” said the young man. He took a few swallows and instantly realized just how powerful the stuff was. His throat muscles tightened, his eyes watered, and he made a choking sound.


“What do you think of it?” asked the farmer. “Good, ain’t it?”


“Yeah,” gasped the lad, afraid he would be forced to drink more if he disagreed, “I guess so.”


Then the farmer handed the young man the shotgun and grinned. “Here! Now, you hold the gun on me and make me drink some!”

Seeing Eye Dog

A man is walking his dog and passes a little restaurant. The cooking smells are so tempting, he decides he would like to stop for lunch, but the sign says no animals are permitted.

After a couple of moment's thought, he decided to brazen it out. He puts on a pair of sunglasses, walks into the restaurant with his dog on a leash and asks to be seated. The waiter says, "I am sorry sir, but we do not permit animals in the restaurant."


The man says, "But I'm blind and this is my seeing eye dog."


The waiter responds skeptically, "Your seeing eye dog? Sir, that dog is a Chihuahua."


The man responds, "A Chihuahua! They gave me a Chihuahua?"

Can You Hear Me Now

An old man was wondering if his wife had a hearing problem. So one night, he stood behind her while she was sitting in her lounge chair. He spoke softly to her, "Honey, can you hear me?" 


There was no response. 


He moved a little closer and said again, "Honey, can you hear me?" 


Still, there was no response. 


Finally he moved right behind her and said, "Honey, can you hear me?" 


She replied, "For the third time, Yes!"

I was in my car one day listening to a guy on the radio help callers with their home problems. One woman called up hysterical after finding a skunk in her basement.

"Leave a trail of breadcrumbs or cat food from your basement to your backyard," suggested the show's host. "That'll get rid of it."


An hour later, the woman called back, even more upset.  "Now, I have two skunks in my basement!"

School Troubles

When I arrived for my daughter’s parent-teacher conference, the teacher seemed a bit flustered, especially when she started telling me that my little girl didn’t always pay attention in class and was sometimes a little flighty. “For example, she’ll do the wrong page in the workbook,” the teacher explained, “and I’ve even found her sitting in the wrong desk.”


“I don’t understand that,” I replied defensively. “Where could she have gotten that?”


The teacher went on to reassure me that my daughter was still doing fine in school and was sweet and likeable. Finally, after a pause, she added, “By the way, Mrs. Johnson, our appointment was for tomorrow.”

The Shopping Cart

My father is a skilled CPA who is not great at self-promotion. So, when an advertising company offered to put my father's business placard in the shopping carts of a supermarket, my dad jumped at the chance.


A full year went by before he got a call that could be traced to those placards.


"Richard Larson, CPA?" the caller asked.


"That's right," my father answered. "May I help you?"

"Yes," the voice said. "One of your shopping carts is in my yard and I want you to come and get it."

The Best Years

Recently a large seminar was held for ministers in training. Among the guests were many well-known motivational speakers.


One trainee boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd’s attention, said, “The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn’t my wife!” The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, “And that woman was my mother!” The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which went over well.


About a week later one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It seemed a bit foggy to him this morning.

Getting to the microphone he said loudly, “The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of another woman that was not my wife!” His congregation sat shocked. After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, “…and I can’t remember who she was!”.

The Parrot

Rhonda went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00.

"Why so little?" she asked the pet store owner.

The owner replied, "Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff."

The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, "New house, new madam."

The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought "That's not so bad."

When her two teenage daughters returned from school the bird saw them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls."

The girls and the woman were a bit offended but then began to laugh about the situation.

Moments later, the woman's husband, Robert, came home from work. The bird looked at him and said, "Hi Robert."

The Diagnosis

While making rounds, a doctor pointed out an X-ray to a group of medical students.

"As you can see," he says, "the patient limps because his left fibula and tibia are radically arched. Michael, what would you do in a case like this?"

"Well," ponders the student, "I suppose I'd limp too."

All Grown Up

I was in Target with my wife when my wife said, “you know, I feel like Billy is too big to still be wearing Micky Mouse underwear, don’t you think he should be wearing something more manly, like Superman underwear?”


All it took was a shrug of my shoulders and there were nine new pairs of underwear in the cart.


I didn’t realize how right my wife was until I heard an excited holler coming from my sons room, 


“WooHoo finally some adult underwear!“

Heads or Tails

Mrs. Baker, a fifth grade teacher, observed a student in her class during a True/False test, flipping a coin and then choosing an answer. 


Mrs. Baker thought to herself, "Hah! Norman didn't study again." 


This answer selection method continued throughout the entire test.


After Norman was obviously finished, Mrs. Baker again watched Norman flipping the coin and continuing through the test a second time. 


"Norman, what are you doing now?" asked Mrs. Baker.


Norman replied, "I'm doing what you always tell us to do! I'm checking my answers!"

The Donkey

One day a boy saw a farmer selling a donkey for $100.00. The boy told the farmer he would pay the money if the farmer could deliver it to his house. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day but when he arrived at the boy's house there was no donkey.

He told the boy that the donkey died during the night. Saddened, the boy asked for his money back. "I'm afraid I have already spent the money." the farmer said.


"Well, then just give me the donkey." said the boy. "


What are you going to do with a dead donkey?" asked the farmer. The boy told the farmer he would think of something, so the farmer delivered the donkey the next day.


The next month the farmer saw the boy and asked him what he ever did with the donkey. "I made $895.00 off of that thing." the boy said.


"How could you make that much money off of a dead donkey?" the farmer wanted to know.


The boy said, "I didn't tell anyone he was dead at first. I just put up signs around town that said I was going to raffle off a beautiful donkey for raffle tickets that cost $5.00 and I sold 200 tickets."


"Wait a minute", said the farmer, "you said you made $895.00 but if you sold 200 tickets at $5.00 each that's $1,000.00. After you subtract the $100.00 you paid me you should have made $900.00,"


"You're right", said the boy, "But when the winner found out the donkey was dead he was a little upset so I gave him his money back."

Birthday Song

After much convincing from my husband, I finally agreed to call an old family friend to sing her happy birthday.


It was only after I finished singing, that the voice at the other end of the line informed me, that it was the wrong number.


“Oh I’m sorry” I said, embarrassed.


“It’s ok”, the voice said “you can use all of the practice you can get!”

Get It Fixed

When the power mower broke and wouldn't run, I kept hinting to my husband that he ought to get it fixed, but somehow the message never sank in. Finally I thought of a clever way to make my point.


When my husband arrived home the next day, he found me seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.


He watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. He was gone only a few moments when he came out again. He handed me a toothbrush.

When you finish cutting the grass," he said, "you might as well sweep the sidewalks"


The doctors say he will probably live, but it will be quite awhile before the casts come off.
