”Well they feel a bit tight,” replies the man.

This duck walks into a convenience store and asks the clerk, ”Do you have any grapes?” The clerk says no, and the duck leaves.
The next day, the duck returns and asks, ”Do you have any grapes?” The clerk again says no, and the duck leaves.
The day after that, the duck walks in the store again and asks ”Do you have any grapes?” The clerk screams at the duck, ”You’ve come in here the past two days and asked if we had any grapes. I told you no every time that we don’t have any grapes! I swear if you come back in here again, and ask for grapes, I’ll nail your webbed feet to the floor!!”
The duck left, and returned the next day. This time he asked, ”Do you have any nails?” The clerk replied, ”No,” and the duck said, ”Good! Got any grapes?”
A man walking along the beach one day finds a bottle. He rubs it and, sure enough, out popped a genie.
”I will grant you three wishes,” said the genie. ”But there is a catch.”
”What catch?” the man asked.
The genie replied, ”Every time you make a wish, every lawyer in the world will receive double the wish you were granted.”
”Well, I can live with that! No problem!” replied the elated man.
”What is your first wish?” asked the genie.
”Well, I’ve always wanted a Ferrari!”
POOF! A Ferrari appeared in front of the man.
”Now every lawyer in the world has TWO Ferraris,” said the genie. ”Next wish?”
”I’d love a million dollars,” replied the man.
POOF! One million dollars appeared at his feet.
”Now every lawyer in the world has TWO million dollars,” said the genie.
”Well, that’s okay, as long as I’ve got my million,” replied the man.
”What is your third and final wish?”
The man thought long and hard, and finally said, ”Well, you know, I’ve always wanted to donate a kidney!”
A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts, ”Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The man below says, ”Yes. You are in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above this field. You are between 40 and 42 degrees North latitude, and between 58 and 60 degrees West longitude.” ”You must be an engineer,” says the balloonist.” I am,” replies the man. ”How did you know?” ”Well,” says the balloonist, ”everything you have told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost.” The man below says, ”You must be a manager.” ”I am,” replies the balloonist, ”but how did you know?” ”Well,” says the man, ”you don’t know where you are, or where you are going. You have made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in the exact same position you were in before we met, but now it is somehow my fault.”-0+
