 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/17/09 - "How I learned to mind my own business": 

How I learned to mind my own business

I was walking past the mental hospital the other day, and all the patients were shouting, '13....13....13.'

The fence was too high to see over, but I saw a little gap in the planks, so I looked through to see what was going on.....

Some idiot poked me in the eye with a stick!

Then they all started shouting '14....14....14'....

   Thanks, Bill!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 11/18/09 - "Cinderella at 95":

Hope this provides you with a chuckle today.

CINDERELLA was now 95 years old.

After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince, she happily sat upon her rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with a cat named Bob for companionship. One sunny afternoon, out of nowhere, appeared the fairy godmother.

Cinderella said, 'Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all these years'?

The fairy godmother replied, 'Cinderella, you have lived an exemplary life since I last saw you. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?'

Cinderella was taken aback, overjoyed, and after some thoughtful consideration, she uttered her first wish:

'The prince was wonderful, but not much of an investor. I'm living hand to mouth on my disability checks, and I wish I were wealthy beyond comprehension.'

Instantly her rocking chair turned into solid gold.

Cinderella said, 'Ooh, thank you, Fairy Godmother'..

The fairy godmother replied, 'It is the least that I can do. What do you want for your second wish?'

Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, 'I wish I were young and full of the beauty and youth I once had.'

At once, her wish became reality, and her beautiful young body returned. Cinderella felt stirrings inside of her that had been dormant for years.

And then the fairy godmother spoke once more:

'You have one more wish; what shall it be?'

Cinderella looked over to the frightened cat in the corner and said, 'I wish for you to transform Bob, my old cat, into a kind and handsome young man.'

Magically, Bob suddenly underwent so fundamental a change in his biological make-up that, when he stood before her, he was a man so beautiful the likes of him neither she nor the world had ever seen.

The fairy godmother said, 'Congratulations, Cinderella, enjoy your new life.'

With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, the fairy godmother was gone as suddenly as she had appeared.

For a few eerie moments, Bob and Cinderella looked into each other's eyes. Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most beautiful, stunningly perfect man she had ever seen.

Then Bob walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her rocking chair, and held her close in his young muscular arms. He leaned in close, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath as he whispered...

'Bet you're sorry you neutered me.'

   WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Norris, I needed that!

        From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX - 11/18/09 - "Better than a flu shot!":

Thought you'd all get a chuckle from this little joke...enjoy!

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.

One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.

As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cute glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a condom!

When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.

‘Miss Beatrice’, he said, ‘I wonder if you would tell me about this?’, pointing to the bowl.

‘Oh, yes,’ she replied, ‘Isn’t it wonderful? I was walking through the Park one day and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven’t ever had the flu since I found this!’

   MORE WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Brent!

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 11/18/09 - "Air Traffic Controllers in the South":

Atlanta Airport--- [I love it]
You gotta love this one even if you've never lived in the South. Some of you will enjoy this more than others.... Southerners can be so polite!
Atlanta Tower: "Saudi Air 511 -- You are cleared to land eastbound on runway 9R."
Saudi Air: "Thank you Atlanta. Acknowledge cleared to land on infidel's runway 9R - Allah be Praised."
Atlanta Tower: "Iran Air 711 --You are cleared to land westbound on runway 9L."
Iran Air: "Thank you Atlanta ATC. We are cleared to land on infidel's runway 9L - Allah is Great."
Atlanta Tower: "Go ahead Saudi Air 511."
Atlanta Tower: "Well bless your hearts. And praise Jesus. Y'all go on ahead now and tell Allah, 'hey' for us, ya hear?"

   Thanks again, George!

  From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - "Women":

      Thanks again, Bill! Although..... I would venture to say there doesn't exist a single man, woman, or child on the planet who has ever been afraid of me - even briefly!

   Here I am at a Halloween Party in 1971 giving it my best shot. Didn't work.....

Wedding and Golf?

The bride came down the aisle and when she reached the altar, the groom was standing there with his golf bag and clubs at his side.

She said, "What are your golf clubs doing here?"

He looked her right in the eye and said, "This isn't going to take all day, is it?"

Since I Fell for You

Written by Buddy Johnson, 1945
(10 Jan 1915 – 09 Feb 1977)

When you just give love, and never get love,
you'd better let love depart.

I know it's so, and yet I know,
I can't get you out of my heart.

You made me leave my happy home.
You took my love, and now you've gone,
since I fell for you ...

Love brings such misery and pain.
I guess I'll never be the same,
since I fell for you ...

Well it's too bad, and it's too sad,
but I'm in love with you ...

You love me, then you snub me.
But what can I do, I'm still in love with you.

Well, I guess I'll never see the light.
I get the blues most every night,
since I fell for you ...

Since I fell for you.
