Sis Goes On Vacation
Sis was visiting the beach for the first time. She checks in at the hotel, and the bellboy takes her bags. She follows the bellboy, and as the door closes, she looks around and shakes her fist at him.
“Young man, I may be old and from Pea Ridge, but that don’t mean I’m stupid! I paid good money, and this room won’t do at all! It’s too small, and without proper ventilation! Why there’s not even a bed!”
The bellhop looks at Sis and says, “Ma’am, this isn’t your room, it’s the elevator.”

Reduce National Debt
The following is supposedly a true story.
Sometime in 1992 , an envelope containing $15,000 in cash was left, anonymously, on a chair at the Detroit IRS office with the instruction to apply it “to reduce the national debt.”
I wonder what happened?
Test Your Dog
When I was taking a course in dog psychology the instructor told me that a good way to test your dog was to pretend to fall and play wounded. A dog with a bad temper should try to bite his owner, while a good dog should lick him in the face and show concern.
One night when I was sitting in my living room eating pizza I decided to test his theory on my two dogs. I stood up and put my hand to my chest, made a scream and fell down on the floor.
The dogs gave me a quick glance at each other and then rushed to the table and ate my pizza.
Retirement Is One Way Street

Locked in the Trunk
A 19 year old was arrested in another state, the police said he had broken into a car in the middle of the night and was in the trunk, disconnecting the rear speakers, when the trunk closed and locked him in. Neighbors reported strange noises, and a police officer called to the scene heard the thief banging on the trunk and yelling, “Let me out!” It is bad enough being locked in a trunk but this fellow got locked up two times that night.
What Went Wrong
Bibles aren’t allowed in schools anymore but are encouraged in prison. If kids were allowed to read it at school, they may not end up in prison.
What went wrong?
Well, I checked on it, this is what I found. June 25, 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of a court case that changed the way Americans think about religion in public schools. On June 25, 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in schools violated the First Amendment by constituting an establishment of religion. The following year, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the Court disallowed Bible readings in public schools for similar reasons. These two landmark Supreme Court decisions centered on the place of religion in public education, and particularly the place of Protestantism, which had long been accepted as the given American faith tradition. Both decisions ultimately changed the way things are in our schools today.
