Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar
and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge
of a large building preparing to jump. The blonde looked at Jack and said, *Do you think he*ll jump?*
Jack: You know what, I bet he will. Blonde: Well, I bet he won*t. Jack placed $30 on the bar and said,
*You*re on!* Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building,
falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack saying, *Fair is fair...
Here is your money.* Jack replied, *I can*t take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o*clock news and I
knew he would jump.* The blonde replies, *I did too, but I didn*t think he would do it again.* Jack took the money..

**My grandfather told me that he saw The Titanic and that from the beginning he warned all the people that
the boat would sink, but they ignored him. However, they were warned again on several occasions, until they kicked
him out of the cinema. **Singing in the shower is all fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth,
then it just becomes a soap opera.

I was sitting on a bus behind a mother and her young son. Her boy kept looking around and pulling funny faces at me. After a few minutes, I got tired of his antics so I said, *When I was young, my mother told me that if I made an ugly face and the wind changed, that my face would stay that way.*
The little brat replied, *Well, you can*t say you weren*t warned!*
