Just For Laughs
Alice and Frank are bungee-jumping one day. Alice says to Frank, "You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico." Frank thinks this is a great idea. So they pool their money and buy everything they'll need: a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc. They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on a square in a small town. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work. When they finish, there's such a crowd they think it would be a good idea to give a demonstration. So, Alice jumps. She bounces at the end of the cord, but when she comes back up, Frank notices that she has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Frank isn't able to catch her and she falls again, bounces, and comes back up again. This time, she is bruised and bleeding. Again, Frank misses her. Alice falls again and bounces back up. This time she comes back pretty messed up; she has a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious. Luckily, Frank finally catches her this time and says, "What happened? Was the cord too long?" Barely able to speak, Alice gasps, "No, the bungee cord was fine; it was the crowd. What in the world is a piñata?"

On the Light Side
Hoss met his close friend Rich for guidance, and narrated to him that he recently met the girl of his dreams. He asked Rich advise as to now should he proceed now! The wise Rich said, “Well, send her roses, and on the same card invite her for a home-cooked meal.” Hoss liked the idea, so he followed his advice and invited the woman. Next day after the dinner, Rich called Hoss and asked him how the home-cooked dinner went. Hoss cried, “It flopped.” Rich asked, “Why? Didn’t the girl come to your house?” Hoss said, “She came, but she refused to cook and left angrily!”

Idiot Sightings
IDIOT SIGHTING - I was tired and hungry. I came across a fast food chain restaurant which was still open, but was about to close in 15 minutes. I hurried in and saw, to my dismay, that while the counter and dining areas were still lit, the entire kitchen area was dark and very empty. I asked the counter girl if I could still get something to eat. She answered that they did have some hamburgers in the warmer. I ordered two hamburgers, plain. The girl grabbed her microphone and said to nobody, "Two Hamburgers, please, plain." Then she walked around to the dark and empty kitchen, took two hamburgers out of the warmer, walked back to the counter and served them to me. Stay alert! They walk among us!
