Fun on the Web Dec 22, 2010 Just funnies

Every December it was the same excruciating tradition. Our
family would get up at the crack of dawn, go to a Christmas
tree farm and tromp across acres of snow in search of the
perfect tree. Hours later our feet would be freezing, but
Mom would press on, convinced the tree of her dreams was
"just up ahead."

One year I snapped. "Mom, face it. The perfect tree doesn't
exist. It's like looking for a man. Just be satisfied if
you can find one that isn't dead, doesn't have too many bald
spots and is straight."


"A man in Sicily had himself arrested so he wouldn't have
to spend the holidays with his relatives. How many guys are
going, 'Why didn't we think of that?'" -Jay Leno


As we were putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve,
I accidentally dropped one. "No problem," I said, picking
it up and dusting it off before placing it back on the

"You can't do that," argued my four-year-old.

"Don't worry. Santa will never know."

He shot me a look. "So he knows if I've been bad or good,
but he doesn't know if you dropped a cookie on the floor?"

* Whenever possible, buy gifts that are already wrapped. If,
when the recipient opens the gift, neither one of you
recognizes it, you can claim that it's myrrh.

* The editors of Woman's Day magazine recently ran an item
on how to make your own wrapping paper by printing a design
on it with an apple sliced in half horizontally and dipped
in a mixture of food coloring and liquid starch. They must
be smoking crack.

* If you're giving a hard-to-wrap gift, skip the wrapping
paper! Just put it inside a bag and stick one of those
little adhesive bows on it. This creates a festive visual
effect that is sure to delight the lucky recipient on
Christmas morning

Your wife: Why is there a Hefty trash bag under the tree?

You: It's a gift! See? It has a bow!

Your wife: (peering into the trash bag) It's a leaf blower.

You: Gas-powered! Five horsepower!

Your wife: I want a divorce.

You: I also got you some myrrh.

In conclusion, remember that the important thing is not what
you give, or how you wrap it. The important thing, during
this very special time of year, is that you save the receipt.

I'm the postmaster for a small town in Pennsylvania. One of
my regular customers, Jeff, bought several sheets of newly
released commemorative stamps.

Soon after he left, a woman came in carrying two crisp

The next morning, I gave Jeff the sheets of stamps he'd
lost. "You know," Jeff said to me, "I'm not at all that
surprised the Houdini stamps reappeared."

As a potential juror in an assault-and-battery case, I was
sitting in a courtroom, answering questions from both sides.
The assistant district attorney asked such questions as: Had
I ever been mugged? Did I know the victim or the defendant?

The defense attorney took a different approach, however.
"I see you are a teacher," he said. "What do you teach?"

"English and theater," I responded.

"I guess I better watch my grammar," the defense attorney

"No," I shot back. "You better watch your acting."

When the laughter in the courtroom died down, I was excused
from the case.

Although I had arrived 20 minutes early for my one o'clock
doctor's appointment, I watched patient after patient dis-
appear into the various rooms. Now, I know things happen,
and that more serious issues are typically dealt with first,
so I was able to accept that those coming in after me were
seen first, But when I was still sitting in the waiting room
1 1/2 hours later, I'd had enough and had become pretty

Fortunately, as I got up and went to the receptionist, I
calmed down enough to handle it without anger.

Instead I calmly said, "I know my son's appointment was for
one o'clock. Can you tell me if that was a.m. or p.m.?"
