*****An elderly man, thinking his wife was losing her hearing, went about 20 feet behind her and asked, “Can you hear me, sweetheart?” No reply. He moved in to about 10 feet and inquired again. No reply. Five feet, and not a word. A few inches behind her ear, he asked, “Can you hear me now, honey?” His wife said, “For the fourth time, yes.”

*****Iowa DNR has requested that all ice fishing houses be removed from the Iowa lakes by July 3rd so as to not interfere with the July 4th fireworks.

Ok. So you’re riding a horse at full speed. There is a giraffe next to you, and a lion chasing you. What do you do? Well, for starters, get your drunk butt off the carousel.
