Joke #18570

A botanist had just returned from an expedition to the South Pacific Islands and was dicussing their adventures with their colleagues back at the university where they taught.

“What was the most exciting discovery you found there?”, asked a fellow professor. One of them replied, “The people native to this one island had discovered the most amazing cure for constipation. Using only the leaves of the local palm trees they concocted a suppository which quickly cured the ailment.”

Another professor asked, “A palm leaf suppository? Did it really work?”

Replied the botanist, “Sure! With fronds like these, who needs enemas?”

I heard my wife mention one morning while getting ready for Church, “I sure need some new stockings.”

When she went into the bakery on the way home that afternoon, I spied a clothing store next door. So, I thought I would surprise her and went in to buy her some new stockings…

“Can I help you,” the saleslady asked.

“Yes, I would like to get some stockings for me wife please.”

“Sheer?” she asked.

In the early 1990’s, when I was stationed at Caserma Carlo Ederle in Italy, it was very common to see soldiers riding bicycles back and forth to work. So it came as no big surprise that, after a series of painfully comic accidents, a new policy was announced, saying in summary,

“Soldiers shall no longer salute officers who are engaged in the riding of a bicycle.”

As a soldier approaches a checkpoint in the dark the voice of the sentry suddenly barks, “Halt! Who’s there?”

“I’m an American,” came the reply.

“Is that so? Okay, advance and recite the second verse of the ‘Star Spangled Banner.'”

When a golf supply store near our house went under, the only evidence it had existed was a sign that read “Hole in One Golf Supplies.”

Recently, a new company moved into the building. Rather than throw away the sign, the owners merely made a few edits. The sign now reads “Hole for One Mortuary Supplies.”

 

Joke #18562

On my four-year-old daughter’s first trip to Disneyland, she couldn’t wait to get on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

As the car zoomed through the crazy rooms, into the path of a speeding train, and through walls that fell away at the last second, she clutched the little steering wheel in front of her.

When the ride was over, she said to me a little shakily, “Next time, you drive. I didn’t know where I was going.”

It was early morning at the military base, and the first sergeant was calling out names for the daily work parties listed on a piece of paper:

“Ames”

“Here!”

“Jenson”

“Here!”

“Jones”

“Here!”

“Magersky”

“Here!”

“Seeback”

No answer.

“SEEBACK!

The troops remained totally silent.

At that point, someone whispered into the first sergeant’s ear. He looked again at what the last name really said, turned a bright crimson red, and quickly turned over the list to continue calling the names printed on the other side.

“My husband says he needs a 28-ounce water pump.”

“A 28-ounce water pump? What kind of car does it fit?”

“A Datsun.”

As the parts guy writes down “Datsun, 28 oz. water pump” the light in his head goes on. “Oh yes ma’am. We’ve got 28-ounce water pumps. We have 24-ounce and 26-ounce water pumps too.”

“Finally,” she says. “You’re the first place I’ve called that knew what I was talking about.”

“Yes ma’am.  That’s because we’re a full-service parts warehouse; it’s our job to have the parts you need, like a 28-ounce water pump,” he says, smiling, as he jots down customer pick-up, Datsun 280Z water pump, part number…

 

Joke #18558

Our mom needed a new mattress for her antique bed, so my brother, Josh, and I decided to buy her one as a gift. The problem was we weren’t sure what to get, because it was an odd size. Fortunately, my brother happened to be visiting my mother one day when I called home.

“Measure the bed frame before you leave,” I told him.

“I don’t have a tape measure.”

“You can use a dollar bill,” I suggested, “each one is six inches long.”

“Can’t,” he replied after digging through his wallet, “I only have a ten.”

“It’s okay.” my husband replied. “He probably thinks it’s the Food Network.”

A woman said to her friend, “I don’t know what to do. My husband is such a mess maker that you can’t imagine. He doesn’t put anything in its place, I am always going around the house organizing things.”

The friend says, “Take a tip from me. The first week after we were married I told my husband firmly, ‘Every glass and plate that you take, wash when you are done and put back in its place.'”

The first woman asked, “Did it help?”

Her friend said, “I don’t know. I haven’t seen him since.”
