Worried that everyone is smarter than you?

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," I announced to
the technician, it's open!"  To which he replied, "I know - I allready got that

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee
asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?"  To which I replied "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."

I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: too many deer were being hit by cars and he didn't want them to cross there anymore.

The Senility Prayer
God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference. Now that I'm 'older', here's what  I've discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
2. Funny, I don't remember being absent minded...
3. All reports are in; life is now officially unfair.
4. If all is not lost, where is it?
5. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
6. Some days you're the dog; some days you're the hydrant.
7. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
8. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
9. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them 
on my knees.
10. When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone 
decide to play chess?
11. It's not hard to meet expenses... they're everywhere.
12. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
13. I've thinking about the hereafter...I go somewhere to get something and then wonder what I'm hereafter.

Jack was going to be married to Jill, so his father sat him down for a little fact-of-life chat. He says "Jack, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite, I took off my pants and handed them to your mother, and said, here - try these on." So, she did and said, "these are too big, I can't wear them". 

So I replied, "...exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will. Ever since that night we have never had any problems." 

"Hmmm," says Jack. He thinks that might be a good thing to try. So on, his honeymoon Jack takes off his pants and says to Jill, "Here try these on." 

So she does and says, "these are too large, they don't fit me.." So Jack says, "...exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will, and I don't want you to ever forget that." 

Then Jill takes off her pants and hands them to Jack and says, "here you try on mine." So he does and says, "I can't get into your pants." So Jill says,"...exactly. And if you don't change your attitude, you never will.

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah's Ark...

1)   Don't miss the boat.
2)   Remember that we are all in the same boat.
3) Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
4)   Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5) Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to  be done.
6)  Build your future on high ground.
7) For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
8)  Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9)  When you're stressed, float a while.
10)  Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by    professionals.
11) No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

This is not an attempt to PUN ish you just to make you laugh.

1.Two vultures board an airplane; each is carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

2. Two boll weevils grew up in the deep South. One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much. The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.

3. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."

7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins!  If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

8. These friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not.  He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop.  Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

9. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him.... what? (Oh man, this is so bad, it's good) A super callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

A Randy Rainbow video from February

From May 2019

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

The two elderly gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a  new restaurant, and it was really great.  I would recommend it very highly."

The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"  The first man thought and thought and finally said,
"What is the name of that  flower you give to someone you love?  You know... the one that is red and has thorns."
"Do you mean a rose?"

"Yes,"  the man said.  He turned toward the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"
