Just For Laughs
There was a case in one hospital's Intensive Care ward where patients always died in the same bed, on Sunday morning, at about 11 a.m., regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors and some even thought that it had something to do with the supernatural. No one could solve the mystery... as to why the deaths occurred around 11 a.m. on Sundays. So a World-Wide team of experts was assembled to investigate the cause of the incidents. The next Sunday morning, a few minutes before 11 a.m., all doctors and nurses nervously wait outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off the evil spirits. Just when the clock struck 11... Pookie Johnson, the part time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system so that he could use the vacuum cleaner.

Kids Say the Darnest Things
“Isn’t the principal a dummy?!” said a boy to a girl. “Well, do you know who I am?” asked the girl. “No.” replied the boy. “I’m the principal’s daughter.” said the girl. “And do you know who I am?” asked the boy. “No.” she replied. “Thank goodness!” said the boy with a sign of relief.
Betcha Didn't Know This!
In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them 'Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down.' It's where we get the phrase 'mind your P's and Q's'
On the Light Side
A man from the city is out for a drive in the country when he comes upon a large ranch with an enormous field filled with flowers. He stops alongside the fence and climbs over it into a field to pick some of the flowers growing on the other side. Shortly after, a rancher pulls up in his truck just as the man notices a bull nearby in the same field. “Say, rancher”, the man calls out, “Is that bull safe?” “Well…,” replies the rancher, pausing to adjust his hat, “he's a lot safer than you are right now!”
Where Did This Come From?
JAYWALKER: Jay Birds who ventured out of their rural forests and into the urban areas often got confused. They often endangered their lives walking anywhere where they wanted, including into traffic. Sophisticated city people laughed at their erratic behavior. So, now anyone who crosses the street in a reckless or illegal way is called a Jay Walker (and sometimes fined).
Idiot Sightings
IDIOT SIGHTING - When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had. Stay alert! They walk among us!
