Just For Laughs
MY BOYFRIENDS I am seeing five gentlemen (give or take) every day! As soon as I wake up, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charlie Horse comes along, & when he's here, he takes up a lot of my time & attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up & stays the rest of the day. He doesn't like to stay in one place very long so he takes me from joint to joint. After such a busy day, I'm really tired & very glad to go to bed with Ben Gay. What a life! Oh, yes, I'm also flirting with Al Zymer; or whatever his name is. I forget! And I'm thinking of calling JACK DANIELS, JIM BEAM, JOSE QUERVO or JOHNNY WALKER to come over and keep me company.

On the Light Side
A man in his 80′s reads hearing loss is rapid at his age so he decides to give his wife, the same age, a test. She is in the kitchen with her back to him, so he asks quietly “What’s for lunch darling?” He gets no response. A little worried…he takes two steps closer. “What’s for lunch darling?” Again she doesn’t respond. Now he goes right up behind her and asks again “What’s for lunch?” At this she whirls round and yells “For the 3rd time, pork chops!”
Where Did This Come From?
CAUGHT RED-HANDED: The phrase today means simply to be caught doing something wrong, usually while you are doing it so there's no doubt you are doing something wrong. In the old days, it simply meant to be caught with the red blood of an animal on your hands as a result of butchering an animal that didn't belong to you. According to the laws back then, just having freshly cut meat didn't make you guilty. You had to be caught with the fresh blood of the animal to be convicted.
Idiot Sightings
IDIOT SIGHTING - I told the girl at the steakhouse register that I wanted the half pound sirloin. She informed me they only had an 8 ounce sirloin. Not wanting to make a scene, I told her I would take the 8 ounce steak instead of the half-pounder. Stay alert! They Walk Among Us.
