*****An old cowboy walks into a barbershop for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber he can’t get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are wrinkled from age. The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells the old cowboy to put it inside his cheek to spread out the skin. When he’s finished, the old cowboy tells the barber that was the best shave that he has had in years, but he wanted to know what would happen if he accidentally swallowed the little ball. The barber replied, “Just bring it back in a couple day like everyone else does.”

A husband and wife were grocery shopping. He picks up a case of beer and puts it in the cart. “What are you doing?” asks the wife. “They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans” he replies. “Put them back. We can’t afford them,” demands the wife. They continue shopping. Later on, she puts a $20 jar of face bream in the basket. “What are you doing?” asks the husband. “It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife. He said, “So does 24 can of beer and it’s half the price!”
