** Jed goes into a public restroom and he’s barely sat down in the cubicle when he hears a voice say, “Hi, how are you?”  Feeling a little embarrassed Jed says politely, “Well, I guess I’m doing fine thank you!”  The voice then responds, “So what are you up to?”  Jed is even more embarrassed but once again he responds politely, “Well just like you I’m sitting here trying to get a load off my mind.”  He then hears the voice say, “Hey, can I come over?”  Jed is now extremely embarrassed and starting to get slightly irritated too, so he snaps back, “Look, surely you understand I’m a bit busy right now!”  At this point he hears the voice say, “Jane listen, I’ll have to call you back.  There’s an idiot in the next cubicle who keeps responding to all my questions!”

** A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus.  She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her.  She immediately moved to another seat.  This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again.  The man seemed more amused.  When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.  The case came up in court.  The judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself.  The man replied, “Well your Honor, it was like this: when the lady got on the bus, I couldn’t help but notice her condition.  She sat down under a sign that said, “The Double Mint Twins are coming,” and I grinned.  Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, “Logan’s Liniment will reduce the swelling,” and I had to smile.  Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, “William’s Big Stick did the Trick,” and I could hardly contain myself.  But, Your Honor, when she moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, “Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident!”…I just lost it.”  “CASE DISMISSED!!”
