A company in Grimsby is offering a job to a burglar who
broke into its factory six months ago. Bosses at Fowler and
Holden say they'll keep a quarter of the 27-year-old's wages

A Complete Search

A Scotchman with the romantic name of Bruce Wallace made
history at London's famous Scotland Yard shortly before
the war. He actually demanded an interview with the head
of the Yard to report that he had lost a shilling on Old Bond
Street and that he had been unable to find it.

The Scotland Yard official fell into the spirit of the
occasion and assured him that the entire London Police
Force would be put on the job.

That night, as fate would have it, something went wrong
with one of the gas pipes under Old Bond Street and fifty
workmen were dispatched to locate the source of the trouble.
They dug a ditch six feet wide straight across
Old Bond Street, stopping traffic completely, of course,
and exposing all the underground pipes to the open air.

Early in the morning, the bereaved Scotchman appeared on
the scene, took one look at the repair work in progress,
and shook his head with reluctant approval. "I must say
one thing for the rascals," he admitted. "They're thorough."

From Laughing Stock, Edited by Bennett Cerf, Grosset and
Dunlap, NY 1945.

There was a young fellow named Wright,
Who could travel much faster than light.
He left home one day,
for a place far away,
And got back the previous night.

There one was a man from Peru,
Who dreamed of eating his shoe,
he awoke with a fright,
in the middle of the night,
and found that his dream had come true!

On his first visit to the zoo, a little boy stared at the
caged stork for a long time. He waved, jumped up and down,
and stared at the stork a while longer.

Finally, turning to his father, he exclaimed, "Gee, Dad,
he doesn't recognize me."

I agree with this next one !

I think my Grandson best summed up my feelings about abstract

The warden, addressing the three instigators of a failed
prison riot, said, "I would like to know two things.
First: Why did you revolt? Second: How did you get out of
your cell?"

One of the three men stepped forward, "Warden, we rebelled
because the food is awful."

"I see. And what did you use to break the bars?" the
warden asked.

Replied the spokesman, "FrenchToast."

Mick and Paddy get off a ship and head for the nearest bar. Each
one orders two whiskeys and immediately downs them. They then order
two more whiskeys and once again quickly throw them back. They then
order another two whiskeys apiece.
Paddy picks up one of his drinks, turns to Mick and says, "Cheers!"
Mick turns to Paddy and says, "Hey, did you come here to Talk,
or did you come here to drink?"

A golfer whose cart broke down flagged down a passing bus and got aboard. He sat down on the bus, with his pants pockets full of golf balls, next to a little old lady.

The little old lady kept looking quizzically at him and his bulging pockets.

Finally, after many such glances from her he said, "It's golf balls."

The little old lady continued to look at him thoughtfully and finally said, "Does it hurt as much as tennis elbow?"

A young camper at summer camp asked the

Wendy was in the kitchen one day, trying to reach the baking powder on the top shelf of a cabinet.
Being only five feet tall, Wendy had to stretch, but still couldn't grab the box.

Fortunately, her husband was six-feet-tall so she called him to help.

"Hey, James!" Wendy yelled , who was in the living room.
"Will you get your tallness in here and get this for me?"

"Sure, Honey," James remarked as he bounded into the kitchen.
"But next time, I'd prefer the title 'Your Highness.'"

AFTER I JOINED my Navy husband on his tour of duty in Japan, I looked
for a job to supplement our income. I was pleased when my first
interview netted a secretarial position at the nearby Army facility. I
was sure my typing skills had landed me the post. But a few weeks
later my boss, a full colonel, called me into his office and told me I
was too quiet. "The reason I hired you," he explained, "was your
delightful Texas accent. I'm homesick for someone who can talk right."

MY HUSBAND met me at the doctor's office for my routine checkup, and
from there we decided to go out to eat. Since we had driven in
separate cars, I arrived at the restaurant first. "One for dinner?"
asked the hostess. "No," I replied. "There will be two of us in just a
minute." When I saw the panicky look on the hostess's face, I realized
I had forgotten about my appearance. Anybody could see that I was at
least 8-1/2 months pregnant.

Bonehead award one goes to an Erie County, Ohio, convicted rapist who
raped a patient in her bed at the former Providence Hospital and who
has now filed a $2 million lawsuit against the hospital for not having
had adequate security that would have prevented him from trying to
rape her. And, he says, this has caused him emotional pain since he's
now in jail.

Bonehead award four goes to a Green Bay Wisconsin man who, for some

In bygone days, a thin man insulted a heavyset man. The heavyset
man challenged his tormentor to a duel with pistols.

On the day of the duel, a debate ensued about the unfair
advantage held by the thin man because he was a much smaller
target. Finally the thin man came up with a solution.

"Let the outline of my figure be chalked upon your body," he
said to his opponent, "and any shots of mine that hit outside
the chalk lines, we won't count."

Waiting in a long, slow-moving line for security clearance
at the Edmonton International Airport in Canada, I was
annoyed to hear a loud male voice behind me. "Excuse me,
excuse me," said the man as he pushed his way to the front.
"I want to make sure I get a good seat."

I resolved not to let this line-jumper get ahead of me.
When I felt a tap on my shoulder, I whirled around,
prepared to give the man a tongue-lashing -- but found
myself face to face with a smiling pilot.

"Mr. Clark, I'm afraid I have bad news", the
doctor told his anxious patient, "You only have
six months to live."

The man sat in stunned silence for the next
several minutes. Regaining his composure, he
apologetically told his physician that he had
no medical insurance. "I can't possibly pay you
in that time."

"OK", the doctor said, "Let's make it NINE

Joe had asked Bob to help him out with the deck
after work, so Bob just went straight over to
Joe's place. When they got to the door, Joe went
straight to his wife, gave her a hug and told her
how beautiful she was and how much he had missed
her at work. When it was time for supper, he
complimented his wife on her cooking, kissed her
and told her how much he loved her.

Once they were working on the deck, Bob told Joe
that he was surprised that he fussed so much over
his wife. Joe said that he'd started this about 6
months ago, it had revived their marriage, and
things couldn't be better.

Bob thought he'd give it a go. When he got home,
he gave his wife a massive hug, kissed her and
told her that he loved her. His wife burst into

Bob was confused and asked why she was crying.
She said, "This is the worst day of my life.

Whenever I travel by plane someone always says,
"Have a safe trip."

Since when does a safe plane flight become my
responsibility? I'm not even sure what I'm supposed

I feel I'm doing my part by not going up to the cockpit
every five minutes and asking, "Are we there yet?"

Manny is almost 29 years old, his friends have
already gotten married, and Manny just dates
and dates.

Finally a friend asks him, "What's the matter,
are you looking for the perfect woman? Are you
that particular? Can't you find anyone who
suits you?"

"No," Manny replies. "I meet many nice girls,
but as soon as I bring them home to meet my
parents, my Mother doesn't like them. So I
keep on looking!"

"Listen," his friend suggests, "Why don't you
find a girl who's just like your dear ole

Many weeks go by and again Manny and his
friend get together. "So Manny. Did you find
the perfect girl yet. One that's just like
your Mother?"

Manny shrugs his shoulders, "Yes I found one
just like Mom. My mother loved her, they
became fast friends."

So do I owe you a Mazel Tov? "Are you and
this girl engaged, yet?"

"I'm afraid not, my Father can't stand her!"
