It Hurts to
A guy is caught by a ranger eating a bald eagle
and is consequently put in jail for the crime. On the day of his trail, the
conversation went something like this:
Judge: "Do you know that eating a
bald eagle is a federal offense?"
Man: "Yes I did. But if you let me argue
my case, I'll explain what happened."
Man: "I got
lost in the woods. I hadn't had anything to eat for two weeks. I was so hungry.
Next thing I see is a Bald Eagle swooping down at the lake for some fish. I
knew that if I followed the Eagle I could maybe steal the fish. Unfortunately,
in the process of taking the fish I killed the Eagle. I figured that since I
killed the Eagle I might as well eat it since it would be more disgraceful to
let it rot on the ground."
Judge: "The court will take a recess while we
analyze your testimony."
15 minutes goes by and the judge returns.
Judge: "Due to the extreme circumstance you were under and because you didn't
intend to kill the Eagle, the court will dismiss the charges. But if you don't
mind the court asking, what does a Bald Eagle taste like?"
Man: "Well your
honor, it is hard to explain. The best I can describe it is maybe a combination
between a California Condor and a Spotted Owl."

Two guys who worked together were both laid off,
so off they went to the unemployment office.
Asked his occupation, the
first guy said, "Panty stitcher. I sew the elastic onto cotton panties."
The clerk looked up panty stitcher. Finding it classed as unskilled labour, she
gave him $300 a week unemployment pay.
The second guy was asked his
occupation. "Diesel fitter, " he replied.
Since diesel fitters was a
skilled job, the clerk gave the second guy $600 a week.
When the first guy
found out, he was furious. He stormed back in to find out why his friend and
co-worker was collecting double his pay.
The clerk explained: Panty
stitchers were unskilled and diesel fitters skilled labour.

"Lord, I am

"Well, Eve, in that case, I have
a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man', Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous
ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly. All in all, he'll
give you a hard time. But, he'll be bigger and faster and more muscular than
you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting
fleet footed ruminants and not altogether bad in the sack."

Ready for Bed
Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, I'm
tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed.
" She went to the
kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches, rinsed out the popcorn
bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked
the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the
table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put
some wet clothes into the dryer, put a load of clothes into the wash, ironed a
shirt and secured a loose button.
She picked up the newspapers strewn on
the floor, picked up the game pieces left on the table and put the telephone
book back into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket
and hung up a towel to dry.
She yawned and stretched and headed for the

Hubby called, "I thought you were
going to bed."
"I'm on my way," she said.
She put some water into the
dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked.
She looked in on each of the kids and turned out a bedside lamp, hung up a
shirt, threw some dirty socks in the hamper, and had a brief conversation with
the one up still doing homework.
In her own room, she set the alarm, laid
out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack.

Our supermarket had a sale on boneless chicken
breasts, and a woman I know intended to stock up.
At the store, however,
she was disappointed to find only a few skimpy prepackaged portions of the
poultry, so she complained to the butcher.
The butcher said, "Don't worry,
lady," I'll pack some more trays and have them ready for you by the time you

boom over the public-address system:

"Pop N. Fresh Dies"
Veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N. Fresh died
yesterday of a severe yeast infection. He was 71. Fresh was buried in one of
the largest funeral ceremonies in recent years. Dozens of celebrities turned
out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty
Crocker, and the Hostess Twinkies. The graveside was piled high with flours as
longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who
"never knew how much he was kneaded.
" Fresh rose quickly in show business, but his
later life was filled with many turnovers. He was not considered a very smart
cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Still, even as a
crusty old man, he was a roll model for millions. Fresh is survived by his
second wife. They have two children and one in the oven. The funeral was held
at 4:50 for about 20 minutes.
