Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate; now what's going to happen to us with both a Senate and a House? --- Will Rogers (1879 - 1935) "We used to play spin the bottle when I was a kid. A girl would spin the bottle and if it pointed to you when it stopped, the girl could either kiss you or give you a dime. By the time I was 14, I owned my own home." ---- Gene Perret
The father of a teenage daughter was concerned with the amount of time she spent on the telephone; not so much for the time she wasted (he had given up on that long ago), but because nobody else could use the phone. So, as a happy solution, he had a telephone installed for her with her own private number and directory listing. Two or three days after her telephone had been installed, he came home to find her stretched out on the floor with her feet on the living room couch and chatting away on the family telephone. Her own telephone was resting silently on her dresser. "Why are you using our telephone," he yelled. "Why aren't you talking on your own telephone?" "I can't," she said, "I'm expecting an important call on my phone."
Tom was so excited about his promotion to Vice President of the company he worked for and kept bragging about it to his wife for weeks on end. Finally she couldn't take it any longer, and told him, "Listen, it means nothing, they even have a vice president of prunes at the grocery store!" "Really?" he said. Not sure if this was true or not, Tom decided to call the grocery store. A clerk answers and Tom says, "Can I please talk to the Vice President of prunes?" The clerk replied, "Dried or canned?"
A college senior took his new girlfriend to the Super Bowl. The young couple found seats in the crowded stadium and were watching the action. A substitute was put into the game, and as he was running onto the field to take his position, the boy said to his girlfriend, "Take a good look at that fellow. I expect him to be our best man next year." His girlfriend snuggled closer to him and said, "That's the strangest way I ever heard of for a fellow to propose to a girl. Regardless of how you said it, I accept!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Ramon Herrera Burglar nabbed using DNA after he forgot to flush A New Mexico burglar who broke into a vacationing family's home has been nabbed with the help of DNA he left behind after downing a can of Coke and then using the toilet and failing to flush. Ramon Herrera, 33, is accused of stealing $250,000 from a home in Albuquerque in September. Police combed the scene and found a can of Coca-Cola with a note that read 'Sorry.' By then the thief had fled the scene, but cops found what was left of his soda. According to the Albuquerque Journal, the homeowners found their sliding back door smashed when they arrived home. The homeowners also discovered footprints leading out to a field and a sweatshirt stashed behind a wall near the house. Police swabbed the can of Coke and also a flashlight that had been left behind. Lucky for them, investigators didn't need to swab the sullied toilet. '(The detective) failed to collect any samples from the used toilet,' says a court filing. What they did collect, authorities say led them to Ramon. He was booked on charges of residential burglary and larceny over $20,000. Herrera has since pleaded not guilty. Considering that his DNA and fingerprints were on file, he is apparently not new at this.

Taking his seat in his chambers, the judge faced the opposing lawyers. "So," he said, "I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe." Both lawyers squirmed uncomfortably. "You, attorney Leon, gave me $15,000. And you, attorney Campos, gave me $10,000." The judge reached into his pocket and pulled out a check. He handed it to Leon. "Now then, I'm returning $5,000, and we're going to decide this case solely on its merits!"

After buying her kids a pet hamster, after they PROMISED they would take care of it, Mom, as usual, ended up with the responsibility. One evening, exasperated, she asked them, "How many times do you think that hamster would have died if I hadn't looked after it?" After a moment, her youngest son replied quizzically, "Once?"
The pastor's sermon focused on how God know's which of us grows best in the sunlight and which of us needs shade. "For example," he said, "roses must be planted in the sun, but fuchsias thrive in the shade." After the service, a woman, her face beaming, approached him. "Your sermon did me so much good," she said. Before he had time to gloat too much, however, she added, "I always wondered what was wrong with my fuchsias."
