he started eating right away.

"I don't have to," The boy replied.

"That's our house," Johnny explained. "But this is Grandma's house and her food always turns out good!"

How to Make Money

A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money.

The old guy fingered his worsted wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel."

"I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents."

"The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.37."

"Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars."

He became dismayed on reading the enclosed card, that it expressed "Deepest Sympathy".

While puzzling over the message, his telephone rang.

It was the florist, apologizing for having sent the wrong card.

"But," added the florist, "I accidentally sent your card to a funeral party."

"Well, what did it say?" ask the storekeeper.

"Congratulations on your new location." was the reply.

After the Accident

Two men got out of their cars after they collided at an intersection.

One took a flask from his pocket and said to the other,

"Here, maybe you'd like a nip to calm your nerves."

"Thanks," said the other one, and took a long pull from the container. "Here, you have one, too," he added, handing back the whiskey.

"Well, I'd rather not," said the first. "At least not until after the police have been here."

An Unusual Pet

A guy was lonely, and decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.

He went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a centipede,which came in a little white box to use for his house.

He took the box back home, found a good location for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the bar to have a drink.

So he asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go to Frank's with me and have a beer?"

But there was no answer from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again, "How about going to the bar and having a drink with me?"

But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet.

So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation.

He decided to ask him one more time; this time putting his face up against the centipede's house and shouting, "Hey, in there! Would you like to go to Frank's place and have a drink with me?"

A little voice came out of the box: "I heard you the first time! I'm putting on my shoes!"

King Solomon, Two Women and a Young Man

Two women came before wise King Solomon, dragging between them a young man.

"This young man agreed to marry my daughter," said one.

"No! He agreed to marry MY daughter," said the other.

And so they began arguing until the King called for silence.

"Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and I shall hew the young man in
half. Each of you shall receive a half."

"Sounds good to me," said the first lady.

But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the
other woman's daughter marry him."

The wise king did not hesitate a moment.

"The man must marry the first woman's daughter," he proclaimed.

"But she was willing to hew him in two!" exclaimed the king's court.

I'll do anything...

A woman is sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her
girlfriends when an exceptionally tall, handsome, middle-aged man enters.

He is so striking that the woman can not take her eyes off him. The man
notices her overly attentive stares and walks directly toward her.

Before she can offer her apologies for rudely staring he leans over and
whispers, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything that you want me to do for
$20... But, on one condition."

Flabbergasted, the woman asks what the condition is.

The man replies, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three

from her purse, which she presses
into the man's hand along with her address.

She then looks deeply into his eyes, and slowly, and meaningfully says,

Concerned About Security

A friend and I stayed at a Chicago hotel while attending a convention. Since
we weren't used to the big city, we were overly concerned about security.

The first night we placed a chair against the door and stacked our luggage
on it. To complete the barricade, we put the trash can on top. If an
intruder tried to break in, we'd be sure to hear him.

Around 1 a.m. there was a knock on the door.

"Who is it?" my friend asked nervously.

"Honey," a woman on the other side yelled, "you left your key in the door."

At the last house, a woman watched from her kitchen window as they checked
her meter.

Finally finishing their work, the older man, a supervisor, challenged the
younger man, his trainee, to a race back to their truck, wanting to prove
that an older man could still beat a younger man.

They raced back to the truck, with the supervisor holding a lead, when they
noticed that the woman from the last house was racing up behind them. They
stopped until she caught up and asked what was wrong.

As she gasped for breath, she said,

"When I saw you two gas men running as hard as you could, I figured I'd

Talented Engineer

The authorities were leading a priest, a drunkard and an engineer to the
guillotine. They asked the priest if he wanted to face up or down when he
meets his fate.

The priest said that he would like to face up so that he will be looking
toward heaven when he dies. So, they raise the blade of the guillotine,
release it and it comes speeding down and suddenly stops just inches from
his neck.

The authorities take this as divine intervention and release the priest.

Next the drunkard comes to the guillotine. He also decides to die face up
hoping that he will be as fortunate as the priest. They raise the blade of
the guillotine, release it and it comes speeding down and suddenly stops
just inches from his neck.

So, the authorities release the drunkard as well.

Next is the engineer. He also decides to die facing up. They slowly raise
the blade of the guillotine when suddenly the engineer shouts, "WAIT!. I
think the problem is right there where the cable is binding!"

Conducting A Music Class

A band director was having a lot of trouble with one drummer. He talked and talked and talked with the drummer, and performance simply didn't improve.

Finally, before the whole band, he said, "When a musician just can't handle his instrument and doesn't improve when given help, they take away the instrument, and give him two sticks, and make him a drummer."

A stage whisper was heard from the percussion section:

"And if he can't handle even that, they take away one of his sticks and make him a conductor."

Microsoft Air

There was a pilot flying a small single engine charter plane, with a couple
of very important executives on board. He was coming into Seattle airport
through thick fog with less than 10 miles visibility when his instruments
went out. So, he began circling around looking for a landmark.

After an hour or so, he starts running pretty low on fuel and the passengers
are getting very nervous.

Finally, a small opening in the fog appears and he sees a tall building with
one guy working alone on the fifth floor.

The pilot banks the plane around, rolls down the window and shouts to the
guy, "Hey where am I?"

To this, the solitary office worker replies, "You're in a plane."

The pilot rolls up the window, executes a 275 degree turn and proceeds to
execute a perfect blind landing on the runway of the airport 5 miles away.
Just as the plane stops, so does the engine as the fuel has run out.

The passengers are amazed and one asks how he did it.

"Simple," replies the pilot, "I asked the guy in that building a simple
question. The answer he gave me was 100 percent correct but absolutely
useless, therefore that must be Microsoft's support office and from there
the airport is just five miles due East."

A rookie police officer was assigned to ride in a cruiser with an

disperse some people who were loitering.

The officers drove to the street and observed a small crowd standing on a
corner. The rookie rolled down his window and said,

"Let's get off the corner."

No one moved, so he barked again, "Let's get off the corner!"

Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled glances in
his direction. Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned
to his partner and asked,

"Well, how did I do?"

"Pretty good," replied the veteran, "especially since this is a bus stop."

The Meat Market

A cannibal entered the meat market to buy something nice for dinner. The owner greeted him and told him to look around.

The cannibal began to inspect the meat case and noticed the market specialized in brain.

Upon further inspection he noticed a marked disparity between the costs of brain meats. A carpenter's brain sells for $1.50 per pound. A plumber's brain sells for $2.25 per pound. He noticed with alarm that a politician's brain sells for $375.00 a pound.

With not a little curiosity he asked the owner why the huge difference in price between the similar meats.

The owner responded with a deadpan look on his face, "Do you realize how many politicians it takes to get a pound
of brains?"
