I think that I shall never see a billboard lovely as a tree. Perhaps, unless the billboards fall, I'll never see a tree at all. --- Ogden Nash (1902 - 1971)
One day the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns, for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the situation the friend remarked as usual, "This is good!" To which the king replied, "No, this is NOT good!"and proceeded to send his friend to jail. About a year later, the king was hunting in an area that he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured himand took them to their village. They tied his hands, stacked some wood, set up a stake and bound him to the stake. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king was missing a thumb. Being superstitious, they never ate anyone that was less than whole. So untying the king, they sent him on his way. As he returned home, he was reminded of the event that had takenhis thumb and felt remorse for his treatment of his friend. He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. "You were right," he said, "it was good that my thumb was blown off." And he proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. "And so I am very sorry for sending you to jail for so long. It was bad for me to do this..." "No," his friend replied, "this is good!!" "What do you mean, 'This is good!'?? How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?!" "If I had not been in jail, I would have been with you, hunting...!"
The poor country pastor was livid when he confronted his wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought. "How could you do this!" he exclaimed. "I don't know," she wailed, "I was standing in the store looking at the dress. Then I found myself trying it on. It was like the Devil was whispering to me, 'Gee, you look great in that dress. You should buy it.'" "Well," the pastor persisted, "You know how to deal with him! Just tell him, "Get behind me, Satan!" "I did," replied his wife, "but then he said "It looks great from back here, too."
A widow recently married a widower. Soon after the marriage she was accosted by a friend who laughingly remarked - "I suppose, like all men who have been married before, your husband sometimes talks about his first wife?" "Oh, not any more, he doesn't," the other replied. "What stopped him?" "I started talking about my next husband."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Darth Alekseyevich Vader, Kjiev, Ukraine Darth Vader not allowed to vote in Ukraine Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side... except maybe in Ukraine, where it turns out being a Sith Lord isn't all that hot. Darth Vader, a candidate running for a seat in the nation's parliament, was turned away at his polling place when he refused to take off his mask. Hours later, it looked like he had little chance of winning, according to exit polls. Or as Dark Lord of the Sith might say: "NOOOOoooooooo!" The candidate, who changed his name to Darth Alekseyevich Vader, turned up to vote on Sunday standing atop a black van decorated with symbols of the Galactic Empire and blaring "The Imperial March" from loudspeakers. Once inside, Vader showed his passport to polling officials, but they asked him to take off his mask. "Here is my face on the passport. Where does the law say that I have to take off my mask?" Vader said, according to The Telegraph. "I thought this might happen," he told reporters afterward, according to AFP. "But I am still disappointed. My rights have been violated again." He was told to get lost and come back without the silly mask. Vader was one of six Darth Vaders running for seats in Parliament, along with Chewbacca, Princess Amidala and Yoda. As of this writing, it doesn't appear that any of them won seats. The Force may not be with them, but they sure do have the farce on their side. The election is counted now, and for the first time since WWII, there were no communists elected to parliament. The election was only in the areas, that are not occupied by Russia.

A scientist found, to his great surprise, that he was lactose intolerant (unable to digest milk sugar). At dinner that night with his two young daughters (age 9 and 4 years), he mentioned that he had found out that he was lactose intolerant and tried to explain to them what that meant. A couple of months later, he took the kids to a local restaurant for a quick breakfast before shopping. The place was very busy, but the quality of the food and service were obviously not up to par. When they finally got their breakfast, his youngest daughter took a look at her father's omelet and burnt toast and declared very loudly to the waitress "My Daddy can't eat that toast, he is charcoal intolerant."

I know my company has made a big effort to be family friendly, but I was baffled when I read this holiday an- nouncement posted on the bulletin board: "All employees are invited to the annual Christmas party. All children under the age of ten will receive a gift from Santa. Employees who have no children may bring grandchildren."
[I know I've used this joke more than once before, but it's one of my favorites...] One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled. "I can't dear," she said. 'I have to sleep in Daddy's room." The little boy replied with a shaking voice, "The big sissy."
