Daily Laughter

A song is not a song unless it’s heard,

A tune is just a tune without a word,

and yet a million forests ring with sound;

it seems that no one told this to the birds.

They fail to recognise they are absurd,

sing on in joy despite what we propound;

A song is not a song unless it’s heard,

A tune is just a tune without a word.

I think perhaps I’d rather be a bird

and fly in thermals high above the ground

to voice my song untrammelled and unbound

by this conceit and so be undeterred:

A song is not a song unless it’s heard.

So far today, God, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, haven't lost my temper, haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over-indulgent. I'm really glad about that.

But in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed and from then on I'm probably going to need a lot more help.

Thank you.

I couldn’t repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.

A day without sunshine is like…, night.

On the other hand, you have different fingers.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.

Monday is a dreadful way to spend 1/7 of your life.

The neighbors thought it was odd, but 93 year old Morton was dating again. One Monday morning Morton woke up with a funny feeling that something important happened last night. It was during breakfast, that Morton finally remembered what it was. He had proposed to his date Greta. But what she answered he just couldn’t seem to remember. Morton picked up the phone and dialed. ”Hi Greta”, said Morton, “I have a funny question for you, do you remember last night when I proposed?” ”Oh my gosh” gushed Greta, “I’m so glad you called, I knew I said yes to somebody but I just couldn’t recall who it was!”

Q. What did the lawyer name his daughter?

A. Sue.

A man died and went to The Judgment, they told him , “Before you meet with God, I should tell you — we’ve looked over your life, and to be honest you really didn’t do anything particularly good or bad. We’re not really sure what to do with you. Can you tell us anything you did that can help us make a decision?”

The newly arrived soul thought for a moment and replied, “Yeah, once I was driving along and came upon a person who was being harassed by a group of thugs. So I pulled over, got out a bat, and went up to the leader of the thugs. He was a big, muscular guy with a ring pierced through his lip. Well, I tore the ring out of his lip, and told him he and his gang had better stop bothering this guy or they would have to deal with me!”

“Wow that’s impressive, “When did this happen?”

“About three minutes ago,” came the reply.

Thats all for today Breathe Easy my friends

A little girl cuts her hand on the playground and runs crying to the teacher. She asks the teacher for a glass of cider.

"Why do you want a glass of cider?" the teacher asks.

"To take away the pain," sobs the little girl.

"What do you mean?" the teacher asks.

"Well," sobs the little girl. "I overheard my big sister say that whenever she has a prick in her hand, she can't wait to get it in cider."
