Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, *Fried Chicken.* She said I wasn*t funny, but she couldn*t have been right because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth, so I did. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do too. Especially chicken, pork, and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal*s office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too and told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite LIVE animal was. I told her it was chicken because you can make it into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal*s office. He laughed and told me not to do it again. My parents told me to be honest, but my teacher doesn*t like it when I am. I don*t understand. Today my teacher told me to tell her what famous military person I admire most. I said, *Colonel Sanders.*
Guess where I am now...

A man and wife are dining in a plush restaurant, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging drinks at the bar. The wife asks her husband if he knows her? The husband replies: Yes, she's my ex-girlfriend. I hear she took to drinking right after we split 7 years ago, and hasn't been sober since.
The wife: Oh my! Who would think a person could go on celebrating for that long.

The California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on the highways recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A pathologist examined the birds, and to everyone*s relief, it was not bird flu. The cause of death seemed to be from vehicular impact. However, during analysis, it was noted that various colors of paint on the claws and beaks of the crows. Testing of these paints found that 98% of the birds were killed by impact with motorbikes, while the other 2% were impacted by cars. The agency then hired an
Ornithological Behaviourist to determine why the percentage difference between motorcycles vs. cars. The conclusion was that when crows eat road-kill, they always have a lookout bird to warn of incoming danger. They discovered that while all the lookout birds could shout *Cah!* but not a single one could shout *Bike!*

*If money doesn*t grow on trees, why do banks have branches?
* Why does round pizza come in a square box?
* What exactly is cured ham cured of?
*Why is someone *IN a movie,* but *ON tv?*
*When someone says they slept like a baby, does that mean that they woke up every 2 hours?
* How can you tell if you run out of invisible ink?

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, *Fried Chicken.* She said I wasn*t funny, but she couldn*t have been right because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth, so I did. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do too. Especially chicken, pork, and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal*s office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too and told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite LIVE animal was. I told her it was chicken because you can make it into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal*s office. He laughed and told me not to do it again. My parents told me to be honest, but my teacher doesn*t like it when I am. I don*t understand. Today my teacher told me to tell her what famous military person I admire most. I said, *Colonel Sanders.*
Guess where I am now...

A man and wife are dining in a plush restaurant, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging drinks at the bar. The wife asks her husband if he knows her? The husband replies: Yes, she's my ex-girlfriend. I hear she took to drinking right after we split 7 years ago, and hasn't been sober since.
The wife: Oh my! Who would think a person could go on celebrating for that long.

The California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on the highways recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A pathologist examined the birds, and to everyone*s relief, it was not bird flu. The cause of death seemed to be from vehicular impact. However, during analysis, it was noted that various colors of paint on the claws and beaks of the crows. Testing of these paints found that 98% of the birds were killed by impact with motorbikes, while the other 2% were impacted by cars. The agency then hired an
Ornithological Behaviourist to determine why the percentage difference between motorcycles vs. cars. The conclusion was that when crows eat road-kill, they always have a lookout bird to warn of incoming danger. They discovered that while all the lookout birds could shout *Cah!* but not a single one could shout *Bike!*

A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas , and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally  grown drugs." The rancher said, "Okay, but don't go in that field over there.",  as he pointed out the location. The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have  the authority of the Federal Government with me !" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish... On any land!  No questions asked! Do you understand ?!!" The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull...... With every step, the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd, sure enough, get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The rancher threw down his tools,  ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs.....  "Your badge, show him your BADGE!!"

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director how he determined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
*Well,* the director said, *we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, or a bucket to the patient, and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.*
*Oh, I understand,* I said. * A normal person would pick the bucket because it*s bigger than the spoon or teacup.*
*No,* the director said. * A normal person would pull the plug. Would you like a bed near to the window?*

At a hotel restaurant, a man sees an attractive woman sitting alone at the next table. Suddenly, she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out. It hurls by the man, and he snatches out of the air and hands it back to her.
*This is so embarrassing,* she says as she pops her eye back into place.
*I*m sorry to have disturbed you. Let me buy you dinner to make it up to you. May I join you?* He nods. The woman is a stimulating conversationalist, stunningly pretty, and the man finds that they have a lot in common.
He gets her phone number and asks, *You are the most charming woman I*ve ever encountered. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?*
*No* she replied. *You just happened to catch my eye.*

An Irish priest was driving down to New York. In Connecticut, he was pulled over for speeding. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest*s breath and then he sees an empty  bottle of wine on the floor and asks, *Sir, have you been drinking?* *Only water,* the priest replied.

A woman is cooking eggs in the kitchen when her husband comes running in. Immediately he sees the eggs and gasps in horror. *Be careful! CAREFUL! More butter! You need more butter!* The wife startled at her husband*s reaction runs to the fridge for more butter.
*You*re cooking too many at once! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW!* The wife, concerned about her husband*s mental state, runs back to flip the eggs.
*The butter! We need the butter! Are you CRAZY?! The eggs are going to stick! HURRY!* The wife runs to the fri-
*The eggs! Flip the eggs!! Careful! You never listen to me when you*re cooking! NEVER! Turn the eggs! Not that quickly, don*t you know how to cook? Are you insane?  TURN THE EGGS!!*
At this point, the wife starts crying since she has no idea what to do. She gasps, *What is wrong with you? I know how to cook eggs.*
The husband simply smiles and says, *I just wanted to show you what it feels like driving with you in the car.* Then he leaves.

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter. The  man at the counter asked the older boy,
*Son, how old are you?*
*Eight* the boy replied.
The man continued, *do you know what these are used for?*
The boy replied, *Not exactly, but they aren*t for me. They*re for him. He*s my brother. He*sfour. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can*t do either.*

A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas , and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally  grown drugs." The rancher said, "Okay, but don't go in that field over there.",  as he pointed out the location. The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have  the authority of the Federal Government with me !" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish... On any land!  No questions asked! Do you understand ?!!" The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull...... With every step, the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd, sure enough, get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The rancher threw down his tools,  ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs.....  "Your badge, show him your BADGE!!"

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director how he determined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
*Well,* the director said, *we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, or a bucket to the patient, and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.*
*Oh, I understand,* I said. * A normal person would pick the bucket because it*s bigger than the spoon or teacup.*
*No,* the director said. * A normal person would pull the plug. Would you like a bed near to the window?*

At a hotel restaurant, a man sees an attractive woman sitting alone at the next table. Suddenly, she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out. It hurls by the man, and he snatches out of the air and hands it back to her.
*This is so embarrassing,* she says as she pops her eye back into place.
*I*m sorry to have disturbed you. Let me buy you dinner to make it up to you. May I join you?* He nods. The woman is a stimulating conversationalist, stunningly pretty, and the man finds that they have a lot in common.
He gets her phone number and asks, *You are the most charming woman I*ve ever encountered. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?*
*No* she replied. *You just happened to catch my eye.*

A woman is cooking eggs in the kitchen when her husband comes running in. Immediately he sees the eggs and gasps in horror. *Be careful! CAREFUL! More butter! You need more butter!* The wife startled at her husband*s reaction runs to the fridge for more butter.
*You*re cooking too many at once! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW!* The wife, concerned about her husband*s mental state, runs back to flip the eggs.
*The butter! We need the butter! Are you CRAZY?! The eggs are going to stick! HURRY!* The wife runs to the fri-
*The eggs! Flip the eggs!! Careful! You never listen to me when you*re cooking! NEVER! Turn the eggs! Not that quickly, don*t you know how to cook? Are you insane?  TURN THE EGGS!!*
At this point, the wife starts crying since she has no idea what to do. She gasps, *What is wrong with you? I know how to cook eggs.*
The husband simply smiles and says, *I just wanted to show you what it feels like driving with you in the car.* Then he leaves.
