**A man was all upset because they had a red haired baby. He said to the doctor, " My wife and I are black haired, but not my baby!" Doc told him likely generations ago, there was a red head. Man said "No, can't be- for generations we've all been black haired." Doc: "How often do you and your wife sleep together?" "Well I'm a little ashamed of that. I'm so busy. Maybe a few times a year."  Doc: "There you got it- it's rust!!"

** While waiting for her first appointment with her new dentist, Jane notices his degree certificate on the wall, which includes his first name.  Suddenly she remembers a tall, handsome boy from her High School class some 45 years ago who had exactly the same name.  Naturally she wonders whether this can be the same guy.  However upon seeing him, she quickly dismisses any such thought. Surely this aging, balding, grey-haired old man with a deeply lined face could not possibly be one of her old High School classmates?  After he had finished examining her teeth, Jane decides to ask him whether he attended the local high school.  “Yes,” he replied.  “That’s amazing.  What year did you graduate then?” Jane asks.  “In 1973,” he responds.  “Amazing, you were in my class! Jane exclaims.  He looks at her closely and then asks, “What subject did you teach?”

** Jed goes into a public restroom and he’s barely sat down in the cubicle when he hears a voice say, “Hi, how are you?”  Feeling a little embarrassed Jed says politely, “Well, I guess I’m doing fine thank you!”  The voice then responds, “So what are you up to?”  Jed is even more embarrassed but once again he responds politely, “Well just like you I’m sitting here trying to get a load off my mind.”  He then hears the voice say, “Hey, can I come over?”  Jed is now extremely embarrassed and starting to get slightly irritated too, so he snaps back, “Look, surely you understand I’m a bit busy right now!”  At this point he hears the voice say, “Jane listen, I’ll have to call you back.  There’s an idiot in the next cubicle who keeps responding to all my questions!”
