A young boy came to Sunday School late. His teacher knew that
he was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong.
The boy replied no, nothing was wrong, that he was going
fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.
The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his dad had
explained to him why it was more important to go to church than
to go fishing.

The boy replied: "Yes he did. Dad said he didn't have enough
bait for both of us."

A surgeon came to see his patient on the morning after her
operation. The young woman asked him, somewhat hesitantly, how
long it would be before she could resume her sex life.
"I really haven't thought about it," gulped the stunned
"You're the first patient who's asked me that question after
cosmetic surgery on the nose!"

The hubby replied, "Yes, honey, that was the happiest hour of

Man arrested after SoCal chase
is person of interest in homicide

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed a man arrested
following a wild chase through Southern California is a person
of interest in a deadly Oildale shooting.

Michael Caleb Reed, who was recently featured on Golden Empire
Most Wanted for a separate incident, was arrested after
crashing into a semi-truck at an intersection in Pomona Tuesday
night, about 30 miles east of Los Angeles.

The California Highway Patrol had told NBC affiliate KNBC that
Reed was a murder suspect during the pursuit. The Riverside
County Sheriff’s Department said it would release more
information about the chase. KCSO describes Reed as a “subject
of interest” for the death of 40-year-old Michael Lewis in
March, meaning detectives want to speak with him about the
case, however there are currently no plans to bring him to Kern
County following his arrest.

Lewis’ friends and family had taken to social media to accuse
Reed in the slaying, where Lewis was shot at a home on Harrison
Drive on March 28.

The US Marshals had profiled Reed earlier this month during an
installment of Golden Empire Most Wanted and had confirmed to
17 News that he had been arrested in Pomona after the crash.
Days before his arrest, Reed commented on the Facebook post
about the story to deny the murder accusations before the Kern
County Sheriff’s Office had publicly identified him as a person
of interest.

Lewis’ family started a GoFundMe page asking for donations to
help with his funeral costs, which can be found at this link.

Reed has a lengthy criminal history and has had past arrests
for rape, burglary, possession of a firearm, and DUI. Last year
Reed was arrested following a pursuit in Northern California
where a Eureka police officer crashed a patrol car and was

I was just visiting some friends who have a farm. I was watching this one rooster chasing after this hen, when the friend's wife came out to feed them. The rooster stopped chasing the hen at once and ran over to begin eating. I just stood there thinking to myself, "I hope I never get THAT hungry."

Poor Ole was having trouble getting his neighbor to keep his
chickens fenced in. The neighbor kept telling him the chickens
had the right to go where they wanted. But the birds were
ruining Ole's prize-winning flowerbeds.

Two weeks later, a friend visited Ole and noticed his
flowerbeds were doing great. The flowers were even beginning to
bloom! The friend asked,
"How did you make your neighbor keep his hens in his own yard?"

Ole replied, "Easy! One night I hid a dozen eggs under a bush
by my flower bed, and the next day I let my neighbor see me
gather them.
I haven't been bothered since."

Bob went to a psychiatrist.
"Doc," he said, "I've got trouble. Every time I get into bed, I
think there's somebody under it. I get under the bed, I think
there's somebody on top of it. Top, under, top, under ... you
gotta help me, I'm going crazy!"

"Just put yourself in my hands for two years," said the shrink.

"Come to me three times a week, and I'll cure your fears."
"How much do you charge?"
"A hundred dollars per visit."
"I'll sleep on it," said Bob.

Six months later the doctor met Bob on the street.
"Why didn't you ever come to see me again?" asked the
"For a hundred buck's a visit?
Three times a week for two years ?
I may be crazy but I am not stupid.
A bartender cured me for ten dollars."
"Is that so! And just how, if I may ask?"

"He told me to cut the legs off the bed!"
