Somebody With Skin

Leave a comment

To help our four-year-old daughter overcome her fear of the dark, her father and I always reassured her at bedtime that God is always watching over her. One night after I had gone to bed, I felt a soft tap on my shoulder. “Mommy,” a familiar voice spoke up, “I know God’s in there with me, but I need somebody with skin.”

As the keynote speaker at an Olympic fund-raiser, a politician told his speechwriter to prepare something upbeat and motivational. Glancing quickly at the text the morning of the address, the politician bellowed, “What kind of nonsense is this? You want me to open my remarks with ‘Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh’?”

“Sir,” replied the aide, “I think you’re reading the Olympic symbol.”

“Do you drink, gamble or chase women?”

“No,” the man answered. “I don’t drink, I never gamble, and I detest women. In fact, I don’t have any vices at all.”

“Why then,” the doctor retorted, “do you want to live another 50 years?”

Kia and Rolls-Royce


A guy in a Kia pulls up next to a Rolls-Royce at a red light and asks, “Hey, is your car Bluetooth enabled?” The Rolls owner nods.

“So is mine. Got Wi-Fi?” The Rolls owner nods again. “Me too. What about a double bed?”

“No. Do you?” asks the Rolls guy.

“Yep.” The light turns, and the Kia takes off. Jealous, the Rolls guy heads to the Pimp My Rolls customizing shop and gets a double bet put in, then drives around until he finds the Kia parked on the side of the road. He raps on the window. “Guess what. I got a double bed put in my car too.”

The Kia owner peers out. “You got me out of the shower to tell me that?!”

The Book Collector

Leave a comment

A rare-book collector met a guy who said he’d just thrown out an old Bible that had been packed away for generations. “Somebody named Gutten-something had printed it,” the man explained.

“Not Gutenberg!” gasped the book lover. “You’ve just thrown away  one of the most famous books ever printed. One copy recently sold at auction for over $4 million!”

The other man was still unmoved. “My copy wouldn’t have brought a dime,” he said. “Some guy named Martin Luther scribbled notes all over it.”

Surprise Tour and A Lazy Young Man

Leave a comment

The owner of a manufacturing plant decided to make a surprise tour of the shop. Walking through the warehouse, he noticed a young man lazily leaning against a packing crate. “Just how much are you being paid a week?” the boss angrily asked him.

“A hundred bucks,” answered the lounging guy.

The boss pulled out his wallet and peeled off five $20 bills. “Here’s a week’s pay,” he shouted. “Now get out and don’t come back!”

Wordlessly, the young man stuffed the money into his pocket and took off. The warehouse manager, standing nearby, stared in amazement. “Tell me,” the boss said, “how long has that guy worked for us?”

“He didn’t work here,” replied his employee. “He was just delivering a package.”

“Mr. Jones,” began the timid-looking young man, “er-ah, that is, can-er I, will you– “

“Why, yes, my boy, you may have her,” Jones cheerfully replied.

The young man gasped. “What’s that? Have whom?” he nervously asked.

“My daughter, of course,” answered Jones. “You want to marry her, don’t you?”

“Not really,” stammered the would-be suitor. “I just want to know if you could lend me $25.”

“Certainly not!” Jones exclaimed. “I hardly know you!”
