  • Cup of Joy
<<Side Bar>> Turn on your sound.  Really cute.

My uncle Bill was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layer hens, called pullets, and 8 or 10 roosters whose job was to fertilize the eggs.

Uncle Bill kept records. Any rooster or pullet that didn't perform well went into the pot. Now this took an awful lot of time. Uncle Bill got a set of tiny bells with different tones, and attached them to his roosters. He could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by listening to the bells.

His favorite rooster was old Brewster. A very fine specimen he was, but his bell had not
rung all morning. Uncle Bill went to investigate. Several roosters were chasing pullets, bells a-ringing.

Brewster had his bell in his beak so it couldn't ring. This way he'd sneak up on a pullet, have his fun and walk on to the next one. Uncle Bill was so proud of Brewster he entered him in the county fair.

Brewster was a sensation. The judges not only awarded him the No Bell Prize, but also the Pullet Surprise.

  • Firing Squad
Bill Clinton is placed against the wall, and just before the order to shoot him is given, he yells, "Earthquake!" The firing squad falls into a panic and Bill jumps over the wall and escapes in the confusion.

John Kerry is the second one placed against the wall. The squad is reassembled and John ponders what his old pal Bill has done. Before the order to shoot is given, John yells, "Tornado!"  Again the squad falls Apart and Kerry slips over the wall.

The last person, George W. Bush, is placed against the wall. He is thinking, "I see a pattern here, just scream out a disaster and hop over the wall." As the firing squad is reassembled and the rifles raised in his direction, He does his smirk and yells, "Fire".

  • Guinea Pig Harem Says "Hello Sooty"
A GUINEA pig called "Sooty" had a night to remember after escaping from his pen and tunnelling into a cage of 24 females!

He romanced each of them in turn and was yesterday the proud father of 43 offspring.

Staff at "Little Friend's Farm" in Pontypridd, South Wales, have now secured Sooty's pen ~ and begun looking for homes for the guinea pigs.

His owner, Carol Feehan 42, said: "I'm sure a lot of men will be looking at Sooty with envy.  We knew that he had gone missing after wriggling through the bars of his cage.  We looked for him everywhere but never thought of checking the pen where we keep 24 females. We did a head count and found 25 guinea pigs ~ Sooty was fast asleep in the corner, and was absolutely exhausted.  We put him back in his cage and he slept for two days!!"

  • Ole & Sven
Two Minnesota lads walked into a pet shop near Brainerd.
They headed to the bird section and Sven said to Ole, "Dat's dem."

The owner came over and asked if he could help them.  "Yah sure, ve'll take four of dem dere little budgies in dat cage up dere," said Sven.

The owner put the budgies in a paper bag. Ole and Sven paid for the birds, left the shop and got into Sven's pick-up and drove to the top of some big cliffs near Brainerd Lake.

At the cliffs, Sven looked down at the 1000 foot drop and said, "Dis looks like a grand place." He took two birds out of the bag, put them on his shoulders and jumped off the cliff.

Ole watched as Sven fell all the way to the bottom, killing himself. Looking down at the remains of his best pal, Ole shook his head and said, "By yumpin' yiminy, dis budgie jumping is too dangerous for me."

VAIT!!! Dere's MORE!

Moments later Knute arrived up at the cliffs. He'd been to the pet shop, too, and walked up to the edge of the cliff carrying another paper bag in one hand and a shotgun in the other. "Hey, Ole. Vatch dis." Knute says. He took a parrot from the bag and threw himself over the edge of the cliff.

Ole watches as half way down, Knute took the gun and shot the parrot. Knute continued to plummet down and down until he hit the bottom and broke every bone in his body.

Ole shook his head and said, "And I'm never trying dat parrotshooting either."

BUT VAIT!!! Dere's MORE, you betcha!!

Ole was just getting over the shock of losing two friends when Larson appeared. He'd also been to the pet shop and was carrying a paper bag, out of which he pulled a chicken. Larson grasped the chicken by the legs, held it over his head, and hurled himself off the cliff and disappeared down and down until he hit a rock and broke his spine.

Once more Ole just shook his head. "First der was Sven Sven with his budgie jumping, den Knute parrot shooting, and, now, Larson is hen gliding!
