Just For Laughs
A blonde was really sick of all the blonde jokes. One day she decided to get makeover. She cut and dyed her hair brunette and went driving down a country road, searching for someone to appreciate her intelligence. When she came across a herd of sheep, she stopped and called the shepherd over. "That's a nice flock of sheep," she said. "Tell you what, I have a proposition for you," said the woman. "If I can guess the number of sheep in your flock, can I take one home?" "Sure," agreed the Shepherd. So the girl looked at the herd and then replied: "382". "Wow," said the shepherd. "That is exactly right. Go ahead and pick out the sheep you want to take home." So the woman picked one out and put it in her car. Then the herder said: "Okay, now I have a proposition for you. If I can guess the real color of your hair, can I have my dog back?"

Where Did This Come From?
ON THE HOUSE: "The drinks are on the house!" We all have heard this in a bar. The origin actually comes from British pubs, where the owner would invite their customers to taste their stock (pubs made their own beer back then.) Their hope was to give them a desire to have more and create sales. Today, anything that is given free (whether by a business or a person) is said to be "on the house."
