    A Wedding

    “Tomorrow will be the best day of my life,” Betty said. “Yes, it will be,” said her mom. “I’m so happy for you. Paul is such a good man. He will make a great husband and father. And he’s so nice. Your dad and I both love him.” Betty met Paul after she broke her leg. She broke her leg skiing. Paul was the doctor who fixed her leg. He visited her every day in the hospital. Then he visited her at home. He brought her Get Well cards and gifts. They fell in love with each other. “I never thought a broken leg would be a good thing,” Betty told her mom. “But it was the best thing that ever happened to you. Life is strange sometimes,” her mom said. After Betty’s leg healed, she and Paul started dating. They went to movies and restaurants. They went to the beach. They even went skiing...

    Man Injured at Fast Food Place

    A 79-year-old man was slightly injured on Saturday while waiting in his brand new convertible in a drive-through lane at Burger Prince restaurant. Herman Sherman of Northville suffered a mild burn about 9:00 p.m. when a young female employee accidentally spilled a cup of coffee into his lap. Sherman said the coffee was hot but not scalding. He refused medical aid, saying the only problem was the stain on his slacks, but it would wash out. He was given a fresh refill. Before Sherman drove off, the restaurant manager, John Johnson, gave him two free gift certificates–one for an extra-large coffee and one for the restaurant’s newest sandwich, the Mc Rap. The employee, who was a new hire, was let go later that evening. She was quite upset...

    Lazy Husband

    There was a girl name Tomoe. One day she took it upon herself to change her husband.
    Tomoe was very picky. She wanted the apartment to always be perfectly clean. But her
    husband was a lousy housekeeper. One day Tomoe said, “when you do the laundry, please sort the clothes by colour”. Tomoe was very polite, but her husband took this the
    wrong way. He yelled, “why are you criticizing me, why do you hate me, I’m not a lousy
    husband!”. Then he jumped up and down. Pulled his hair and said, “I wash my hands of
    this. I will never do the laundry again”.

    Listening: Fishing For Girls

    Fishing for girls

    Wednesday night, Howard asked Glenn if he wanted to go fishing and girl-watching that weekend at Santa Fe Lake. “We’ll leave Friday morning and return late Sunday night, ”he said. Glenn said he had to clean out his garage, so Howard went by himself. Howard had also planned to lie around the hotel pool, soak up the sun, read a good book, and look at pretty women in their bathing suits. His own apartment didn’t have a pool, so whenever he travelled, he always liked to stay at a place with a pool. But when he arrived at the hotel about noon, he saw that there were no pretty girls at the pool. There were no girls at all. There was nobody at the pool, because the pool was empty. It was being repaired all that week. The staff had “forgotten” to tell Howard this little detail...

    Book Him

    A man accused of failing to return more than 700 children’s books to five different libraries inthe county was released from jail yesterday after a book publisher agreed to post his bond of $1,000. The publisher said, “There’s a story here. This is a man who loves books. He just can’t let go of them. He hasn’t stolen a single book. So what’s the crime? We think that Mr. Barush has a story to tell. We plan to publish his story.” When asked why he didn’t return the books, Mr. Barush said, “Well, how could I? They became family to me. I was afraid to return them, because I knew that kids or dogs would get hold of these books and chew them up, throw them around, rip the pages, spill soda on them, get jam and jelly on them, and drown them in the toilet...

    Better To Be Unlucky

    Sam, an unemployed piano tuner, said it was only the second thing he had ever won in his life. The first thing was an Afghan blanket at a church raffle when he was 25 years old. But this was much bigger: it was $120,000! He had won the Big Cube, a state lottery game. To win, a contestant must first guess which number a spinning cube will stop on. The cube has six numbers on it: 1X, 10X, 50X, 100X, 500X, and 1000X. If he is correct, the contestant must then guess which of two selected variables is going to be greater. So, just guessing which number appears on the cube does not guarantee that you will win any money. Sam correctly guessed 1000X, but he still had to choose between two variables...

    A Drunk Pilot

    There were 102 passengers on the plane. They were waiting for the plane to take off. But the plane was just sitting there. The plane could not take off without a pilot. The co-pilot was already on board. But the pilot was not. Where was the pilot? The flight attendants didn’t know. The co-pilot didn’t know. The passengers didn’t know. Finally, the pilot got on the plane. He was singing and laughing. He waved to all the passengers. He said hello. He told them his name–three times! His eyes were bloodshot. His breath smelled of alcohol. He said, “Are you all ready to fly? We’re going to fly. We’re going to fly high into the sky.” A passenger close to him was angry. “Why are you so late?” The pilot said, “I’m not late—you’re early!” He laughed at his own joke...

    The well-dressed, gray-haired woman was crying her eyes out. She had just been fined $100 by the judge because a month ago her dog made a mess on the front lawn of the courthouse. “I just got out of the cab and I leashed Poopsie to the light pole. After I paid the fare and gave the driver a dollar tip, I turned around and saw that Poopsie had made a mess. I didn’t have any plastic bags, so I said, ‘Well, Poopsie, let’s go home. There’s nothing I can do about this now.’ “We were just starting home when I heard this voice out of nowhere: ‘Excuse me, ma’am. Is that your dog?’ I turned around. It was an officer of the law. Well, of course, it was my dog. ‘That dog just made an illegal deposit on the courthouse lawn...
