One fall day Bill was out raking leaves when he noticed a hearse slowly drive by. Following the first hearse was a second hearse, which was followed by a man walking solemnly along, followed by a dog, and then about 200 men walking in single file.
Intrigued, Bill went up to the man following the second hearse and asked him who was in the first hearse.” My wife,” the man replied. ”I’m sorry,” said Bill.” What happened to her?” ”My dog bit her and she died.”
Bill then asked the man who was in the second hearse. The man replied, ”My mother-in-law. My dog bit her and she died as well.” Bill thought about this for a while. He finally asked the man, ”Can I borrow your dog?”
To which the man replied, ”Get in line.”
A little boy and his grandfather are raking leaves in the yard. The little boy finds an earthworm trying to get back into its hole. He says, ”Grandpa, I bet I can put that worm back in that hole.”
The grandfather replies, ”I’ll bet you five dollars you can’t. It’s too wiggly and limp to put back in that little hole.”
The little boy runs into the house and comes back out with a can of hairspray. He sprays the worm until it is straight and stiff as a board.
Then he puts the worm back into the hole.
The grandfather hands the little boy five dollars, grabs the hairspary, and runs into the house. Thirty minutes later the grandfather comes back out and hands the little boy another five dollars.
The little boy says, ”Grandpa, you already gave me five dollars.”
The grandfather replies, ”I know. That’s from your grandma.”
A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a midwest town he planned to visit on his vacation. He wrote, ”I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?”
An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who said, ”I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls. I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. and I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you’re welcome to stay here, too.”
A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up.” Oh, we’ll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship,” the wife explained. ”He was a communications major in college, and I majored in theater arts.
He communicates really well, and I just act like I’m listening.”
A man was traveling down a country road when he saw a large group of people outside a house. He stopped and asked a person why the large crowd was there.
A farmer replied, ”Joe’s mule kicked his mother-in-law and she died.”
”Well,” replied the man, ”she must have had a lot of friends.”
”Nope,” said the farmer, ”we all just want to buy his mule.”
