Daily Laughter


Tor's Day" or "Thor's Day" became Thursday in English, Donnerstag in German (meaning "Thunder's Day"), Donderdag in Dutch (meaning Thunder day), and Torsdag in Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian.

There are two ways of meeting difficulties. You alter the difficulties or you alter yourself to meet them.

Wishing You A Great Thursday!

I know how it is to need money--

As much as I can get;

My teenager goes to the mall,

And I go into debt.

Most kids' first words are "Ma-ma,"

She said "Vi-sa" with a smile;

She has a black belt in shopping,

And a package from every aisle!

While I went off to work one day,

She decided to paint the wall.

And when I came back home that night,

She was curled into a ball.

Her eyes were closed, she was breathing hard,

Her hair was very wet.

From her head to the tips of her pretty toes,

She was covered all in sweat.

She was wrapped in a jacket made of down,

With a fur coat on top of that.

The wall was glowing with new, fresh paint;

On the floor, the paint can sat.

"Sweetheart!" I cried, with a worried look,

"Are you all right, my dear?"

She lazily opened her lovely eyes,

And smiled from ear to ear.

"I knew I could do it," she said with a grin;

"I followed the paint can notes.

It clearly said 'For best results,

Be sure to put on two coats.'"

My five year-old-son, he lies a lot,

And I wanted it to end,

So I told him about the boy who cried "wolf!"

Hoping he would comprehend.

"He kept crying 'wolf!' when there was no wolf,"

I told my son, whom I adore.

"When the wolf came to eat him, he called for help,

But no one listened anymore."

My son's eyes grew wide; It looked like he got it;

My heart was all aglow.

But he dashed my hopes when he nodded and said,

A life insurance salesman

Was talking to a wife:

"What will you get if your husband dies,

You the end of his life."

The woman thought and thought some more,

And then she scratched her noodle.

"Well, I guess, you know, with my husband gone,

I’d probably get a poodle."

Three genteel ladies went lunching

At a sophisticated hotel.

Their elevator door opened;

They gasped, and their faces fell.

A seven-foot man was inside,

With an intimidating expression.

They got in anyway;

They were the very souls of discretion.

"Sit!" the man yelled, and they sat,

In their luncheon finery,

They went up; then the door slid aside;

The man left, abashedly.

His dog had been behind him;

At lunch they got a note.

The basketball star paid their bill;

"My apologies, and my treat," he wrote.

A dispute among three kinds of cops,


Who can catch bad guys the quickest?

We'll set up a contest and see.

A rabbit was set loose in the trees;

"We'll get him first," they all said.

They gathered up all of their gear,

And into the forest they sped.

The CIA with informants,

Questions animals and plants on its list,

And after four months investigation,

Concludes rabbits do not exist.

The FBI searches and searches,

But can't find a single clue.

After three weeks they burn down the forest,

Killing the poor bunny, too.

The LAPD takes an hour;

Solving crimes fast is their habit.

Their perp is a badly bruised cougar,

Shouting, "Whatever you say! I'm a rabbit!"

Two old friends met on the street,

Hadn't talked in many a year;

"How's your family,?" asked this dear old friend,

"I'd really like to hear."

"George has a Master's in literature,"

The other said, with pride,

"And Mary's a grad in modern art,

Her career she has yet to decide."

"And How's Willy," the first friend kindly asked,

While the other displayed defeat;

"Oh, Willy's a plumber," she sighed, hanging her head,

"But without him, we'd be out on the street."

A pastor journeyed to heaven;

A cab driver followed him through;

The cab driver got a mansion;

The pastor got a lean-to.

"How come?" inquired the pastor,

"This seems like a charade."

"They slept through your sermons," said Peter;

"When he drove, his passengers prayed."

What do dwarfs and midgets have in common?

Very little...

A piece of string walks into a cafe. Attendant says they won't serve him...he's a string. String goes out, and ties himself. String walks back in. Attendant says "Didn't I tell you I would not serve a piece of string?" the string replies "No, I'm a frayed knot".

What's the difference between a bad golfer and a bad skydiver?

A bad golfer goes whack "darn"

While a bad skydiver goes "darn" whack

An ant, a spider, and a centipede are holding a party.

The ant realizes that they are running low on beer. He offers to head out to buy some more beers. The centipede says, "No, let me do it. You'd take too long. I have a lot more legs than you - I can do it faster!" The bugs agree.

10 minutes pass... Then 20 minutes, then 30, then more. The spider asks, "What's taking him so long?" The ant decides to head out to investigate. He opens the front door and sees the centipede outside.

The ant asks, "Hey man, what's taking you so long?"

The centipede replies, "I'm still putting on my shoes."

4 people on a plane thats about to crash

There only 4 people left on a plane thats about to crash. One is the world's smartest man, another is the world's foremost brain surgeon, a priest, and a boy scout.

There are only 3 parachutes on the plane and they are debating on who should get the 3 remaining parachutes. The brain surgeon says "The world cannot afford to lose me Im a highly skilled surgeon" and then takes a parachute and immediately jumps out. The smartest man says "The world cannot afford to lose me because Im the most intelligent person alive" and takes one and immediately jumps out.

And then the priest looks at the boy scout and says "Son take the last parachute and jump out because Ive led a full life and Im ready to die". And then the boy scout says "That wont be necessary Father because the world's smartest man just jumped out with my backpack."

Did you hear about the desperado who tried to hijack a bus full of Japanese tourists? Fortunately,

Why should you marry a Baker? Because they make a lot of dough.

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad.'

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it's not only the passion....Dad she's pregnant.

Stacy said that we will be very happy.

She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone..

We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.

Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself.

Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren...

Love, Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house.

I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a Report card, That's in my center desk drawer.

I love you.

Call me when it's safe to come home.

A linguistics professor was lecturing his class one day.

'In English', he said, 'A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.'

A loud voice from the back of the room piped up, 'Yeah, right.'
