** A state trooper pulled over a man for speeding one afternoon. After the car pulled over the officer took the gentleman out of the car and told him to put his hands on the hood of his car. The trooper told the man, “Sir, the reason I stopped your vehicle is because you were going 80 miles per hour over the posted speed limit and it took me miles to catch up to you.” The man said “I’m sorry officer, but there’s a good reason why I was speeding.” The officer looked at the man and said “if you can give me one good reason why you were speeding, I will let you off with a warning.” The man began to explain, “A few years ago my wife ran off with a state trooper, and when I saw you in my rearview mirror, I panicked. I thought you were bringing her back!” Laughing, the officer told the man to have a nice day.

** Little Johnny is always being teased by the other neighborhood boys for being stupid. Their favorite joke is to offer Johnny his choice between a nickel and a dime. Little Johnny always takes the nickel. One day after Johnny takes the nickel, a neighbor takes him aside and says, “Johnny, those boys are making fun of you. Don’t you know that a dime is worth more than a nickel even though the nickel is bigger?” Johnny grins and says, “Well, if I took the dime, they’d stop doing it. So far I’ve made $20!”

** At the local church there was a large busted organist named Susan, and her breasts were so large that they bounced and jiggled as she played the organ. Unfortunately, she distracted the male part of the congregation considerably. The very proper church ladies were appalled. They said something had to be done about this or they would have to find another organist. So one of the ladies approached Susan very discreetly about the problem and told her to mash up some green persimmons and rub them on her nipples and all over her breasts and this should cause them to shrink in size. She warned Susan not to taste any of the green persimmons because they are so sour that they will make your mouth pucker up and you won’t be able to talk properly for a while. The voluptuous organist reluctantly agreed to try it. The following Sunday morning the minister walked up to the pulpit and said, “Dew to thircumsthanthis bewond my contwol, we will not hab a thermon tewday.”
