There was a man who wanted to find the perfect gift for his wife. He went to the store and asked the salesclerk and asked him what he should get his wife. The salesclerk brought out a parrot. The salesclerk said, this is no ordinary parrot, if you light a match under it’s right foot, it plays Silent Night, if you light a match under it’s left foot, it plays Santa Claus is Coming to Town. The salesclerk made sure to tell him that the name of the parrot is Chet. The man thought it would be great, so he took it home. He let his wife open it early, since it was a living thing. He told her what great songs it played. They wondered what it would play if they lit a match under it’s crotch. So, they did. The parrot sang ”Chet’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire.”-0+
A phone rings at KGB headquarters.
”Hello, is this the KGB?”
”Yes. What do you want?”
”I’m calling to report my neighbor Yankel Rabinovitz as an enemy of the State. He is hiding undeclared diamonds in his fire wood.”
”This will be noted.”
The next day, the KGB goons visit Rabinovitz’s house. They search the shed where the fire wood is kept, break every piece of wood there, but find no diamonds. They swear at Yankel Rabinovitz and leave.
The phone then rings at Rabinovitz’s house.
”Hello, Yankel! Did the KGB come?”
”Did they chop up your firewood?”
”Yes, they did.”
”Okay, now it’s your turn to call. I need my vegetable patch plowed.”
There was a man who had worked his whole life in a pickle factory. One day he came home and told his wife that he had been fired from his job. She began to scream and yell, ”You have given them twenty years of devoted service. Why did they fire you?”
”For twenty years I’ve wanted to stick my pecker in the pickle slicer,” he explained, ”and today I finally did it!”
The wife ran over and pulled his pants down to see what damage had been done. ”You look okay,” she said with a sigh of relief. ”So what happened to the pickle slicer?”
”Well,” he said with hesitation, ”they fired her, too.”
A married couple have been stranded on a deserted island for many years. One day another man washes up on shore. He and the wife become attracted to each other right away, but realize they must be creative if they are to engage in any hanky-panky.
The husband, however, is very glad to see the second man there. ”Now we will be able to have three people doing eight hour shifts in the watchtower, rather than two people doing 12-hour shifts.”
The newcomer is only too happy to help and in fact volunteers to do the first shift. He climbs up the tower to stand watch.
Soon the couple on the ground are placing stones in a circle to make a fire to cook supper. The second man yells down, ”Hey, no screwing!”
They yell back, ”We’re not screwing!”
A few minutes later they start to put driftwood into the stone circle. Again the second man yells down, ”Hey, no screwing!”
Again they yell back, ”We’re not screwing!”
Later they are putting palm leaves on the roof of their shack to patch leaks. Once again the second man yells down, ”Hey, I said no screwing!”
They yell back, ”We’re not screwing!”
Eventually the shift is over and the second man climbs down from the tower to be replaced by the husband. He’s not even halfway up before the wife and her new friend are hard at it.
The husband looks out from the tower and says, ”Son-of-a-gun. From up here it DOES look like they’re screwing.”
A man is on his way home from work one afternoon in L. A.
He’s stopped in traffic and thinks, ”Wow, this traffic seems worse than usual; we’re not even moving.”
He notices a police officer walking down the highway in between the cars, so he rolls down his window and says, ”Excuse me, officer, what’s the hold-up?”
”O. J. just found out the verdict, and he’s all depressed. He’s lying down in the middle of the highway and he’s threatening to douse himself in gasoline and light himself on fire. He just doesn’t have $8. 5 million for the Goldmans. I’m walking around taking up a collection for him.”
The man says, ”Oh really, how much have you collected so far.”
The officer replies, ”So far, ten gallons.”
