After interviewing a particularly short-spoken job candidate, I described the person to my boss as rather monosyllabic. My boss said, "Really? Where is Monosyllabia?" Thinking that he was just kidding, I played along and said that it was just south of Elbonia. He replied, "Oh, you mean over by Croatia?"
Two drunks are walking along. One drunk says to the other, "What a beautiful night, look at the moon." The other drunk stops and look at his drunk friend, "You are wrong, that's not the moon, that's the sun." Both started arguing for a while when they come upon another drunk walking so they stopped him. "Sir, could you please help settle our argument? Tell us what that thing is up in the sky that's shining. Is it the moon or the sun?" The third drunk looked at the sky and then looked at them and said, "Scho Schorry, I don't live around here."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Police in Leeds, England Stolen and re-stolen Seized video games taken from police depot LEEDS, England (UPI) -- Police in Leeds, England, said thieves broke into a secure police depot and made off with more than $1 million in video games that had been seized the same day. Investigators said seven pallets of games -- which included 16,000 copies of "Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway" for the PlayStation 3 -- were stolen from a truck while the driver was resting, The Daily Telegraph reported. Officers spotted falsified license plates on the truck being used by the thieves and it was impounded along with the video games. However, before the truck and games could be tested for fingerprints and DNA, it was stolen from the police depot. The truck was later found abandoned -- and empty -- in a Bradley, England, parking lot. "We are pursuing a number of lines of inquiry, including eBay transactions where a number of the games have been potentially identified as being advertised for sale. Arrests have already been made in respect of this," a police spokesman said. A spokesman for video game creator Ubi Soft said the company is working to replace the stolen games.

A co-worker was telling us about her sister who was coming to visit her for the holidays. Someone asked how old her sister was, at which she paused, thought for a bit, and then answered, "She's half as old as I am, that's how I always remember." So someone else (okay, it was me) said, "That's neat... So every year that you age, she only ages half a year?" My co-worker thought about that, and then said, "Oh, yeah, I guess it only works on even years." Math is not her strong point.

A young woman is visiting her parents. While helping her mother fix dinner, she opens the refrigerator. On the inside of the door, she sees a risque picture of a lovely, slender, perfectly built and scantily-clad young woman. "What's this about, Mom?" she asks. "Oh, I put that up there to remind me not to overeat," the mother answers. "Is it working?" her daughter asks. "Yes and no," the mother says. "I've lost 15 pounds, but your dad has gained 20."

Although he was a qualified meteorologist, Hopkins ran up a terrible record of forecasting the weather for the TV news program. He became something of a local joke when a newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions and showed that he'd been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year. That kind of notoriety was enough to get him fired. He moved to another part of the country and applied for a similar job. One blank on the job application called for the reason for leaving his previous position. Hopkins wrote, "The climate didn't agree with me."
