As I left the grocery store, I noticed two little kids, maybe six or seven years old, selling candy bars in front of the store to raise money for their school band.
“I’ll buy a chocolate bar on one condition,” I said to the boys. “You eat it for me.”
I bought one and handed the candy back to one of the boys. He shook his head. “I can’t,” he said.
Looking me in the eye, he responded gravely, “I’m not supposed to take candy from strangers.”

A woman and a baby come into the doctor’s office.
She is taken into an examining room and waits for the doctor.
After arriving there, the doctor examines the baby, and finds him not gaining much weight and asks the woman, “Is he breast fed or on the bottle?”
“Oh…he is breast fed!”, replied the woman.
“Well then, strip down to your waist,” orders the doctor.
She takes off her top and bra and sits on the examine table.
The doc starts pressing, kneading and pinching both breasts for quite a while in a very detailed and thorough examination.
The doc motions to her to get dressed, then the doctor says, “No wonder this baby is so hungry. You don’t have any milk!”
The woman with a wry grin on her face responds, “Well of course I don’t, I’m his aunt!”
A man is at Train Station waiting for his train that leaves at 6 p.m., but he has forgotten his watch. So he looks for someone to ask the time. He spots a guy carrying two suitcases and sporting this fabulous hi-tech watch, so he asks him for the time.
The guy replies “Sure, which country?”
The fella asks, “How many countries have you got?” to which the man replies, “All the countries in the world!”
“Wow! That’s a pretty cool watch you’ve got there.”
“That’s nothing,” the man says. “This watch also has a GPS facility, fax, e-mail and can even receive Television channels and display them on its miniature active colour pixel LCD screen!”
“Boy, that’s incredible. I wish I had a watch like that one. You wouldn’t consider selling it by any chance?”
“Well, actually the novelty has worn off for me, so for 900, if you want it, it’s yours.”
The watchless traveller can hardly whip out his check book fast enough to hand over a check for 900.
The seller takes off the watch and gives it to him. “Congratulations, here is you new hi-tech watch.” Then, handing the two suitcases over as well, he says, “And here are the batteries.”
A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and completely tore off the door on the driver’s side. The lawyer immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialled 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled up.
Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically. His Lexus, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter what the body shop did to it.
When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief. “I can’t believe how materialistic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you don’t notice anything else.”
“How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, “Don’t you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you.”
“My God!” screamed the lawyer. “Where’s my Rolex?”
There was a very religious man named Jim, who lived near a river. One day, the river rose over the banks and flooded the town, and Jim was forced to climb onto his porch roof. While sitting there, a man in a boat came along and told Jim to get in the boat with him.
Jim said, “No, that’s okay. God will take care of me.”
So, the man in the boat drove off.
The water rose higher, so Jim climbed onto his roof. At that time, another boat came along, and the person in that one told Jim to get in.
Jim replied, “No, that’s okay. God will take care of me.”
The person in the boat then left.
The water rose even more, and Jim climbed onto his chimney. A helicopter came along and lowered a ladder for him. The woman in the helicopter told Jim to climb up the ladder and get in.
Jim said, “That’s okay.”
The woman said, “Are you sure?”
Jim replied, “Yeah, I’m sure God will take care of me.”
Finally, the water rose too high and Jim drowned. Jim got to heaven and was face-to-face with God.
Jim said to God, “You told me that you would take care of me! What happened?”
God replied, “Well, I sent you two boats and a helicopter. What else did you want?”
Three elderly gentlemen were talking about what their grandchildren would be saying about them fifty years from now.
“I would like my grandchildren to say, ‘He was successful in business’,” declared the first man.
“Fifty years from now,” said the second, “I want them to say, ‘He was a loyal family man’.”
Turning to the third gent, the first gent asked, “So what do you want them to say about you in fifty years?”
“Me?” the third man replied. “I want them all to say, "He certainly looks good for his age’!”
A little boy went to the store with his grandmother and on the way home, he was looking at the things she had purchased.
He found a package of panty hose and began to sound out the words “Queen Size”.
He then turned to his grandmother and exclaimed,
“Look Grandma, you wear the same size as our bed!”
“How long have you been driving without a tail light?” asked the policeman after pulling over a motorist.
The driver jumped out, ran to the rear of his car, and gave a long, painful groan.
He seemed so upset that the cop was moved to ease up on him a bit.
“Come on, now,” he said, “you don’t have to take it so hard. It isn’t that serious.”
“It isn’t?” cried the motorist. “Then you know what happened to my boat and trailer?”
While my friend was working as a receptionist for an eye surgeon, a very angry woman stormed up to her desk. “Someone stole my wig while I was having surgery yesterday,” she complained.
The doctor came out and tried to calm her down. “I assure you that no one on my staff would have done such a thing,” he said. “Why do you think it was taken here?”
“After the operation, I noticed the wig I was wearing was cheap-looking and ugly.”
“I think” explained the surgeon gently, “that means your cataract operation was a success.”
