A blonde goes into a coffee shop and notices that there is a ‘peel and win’ sticker on her coffee cup. She peels it off and starts screaming, “I won a motorhome! I won a motorhome!”

The waitress says, “That’s impossible. The biggest prize is a free lunch.”

But the blonde kept screaming, “I won a motorhome!”

Finally the manager comes over and says, “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but you’re mistaken. You couldn’t  have possibly won a motorhome because we didn’t have that as a prize.”

The blonde says, “No, it’s not a mistake. I’ve won a motorhome!*

She hands him the ticket and he reads... - W I N A B A G E L.

“Hello, is this the Sheriff’s office?” “Yes, what can we do for you?” “I’m calling to report my neighbor Virgil Smith – he’s hiding marijuana inside his firewood. I don’t quite know how he gets it in the logs, but he’s hiding it there.” “Thank you very much for the call sir.” The next day the Sheriff’s deputies descend on Virgil’s house. They searched the shed where he kept the firewood. Using axes, they bust open ever piece of wood, but find no marijuana. They sneered at Virgil, and they left. Shortly after, the phone rings at Virgil’s house. “Hey Virgil, this is Floyd. Did the Sheriff come?” “Yeah!” “Did they chop your firewood for the winter?” “Yep, they sure did!” “Happy Birthday, buddy!”

An elderly patient got hearing aids from the doctor, and after a month goes back to see the doctor again.

Doctor: Your hearing is fine now. Your family must be really pleased.

Patient: Funny story now that you should mention my family. I haven’t told them yet. I just sit and listen to their conversations. In the past month, I have changed my will 3 times.
