"A casino in South Dakota was robbed by a man dressed as a mummy. The police described the suspect as anywhere between 25 and 8,000 years old." -Craig Ferguson

studying have 20 percent lower grades than students who
focus. When kids who use Facebook heard that they were
like, '20 percent? Big deal. What's that, like 10 percent?'"
-Jimmy Fallon


Since he runs a pawnshop, I decided to ask a friend of mine
to appraise my grandfather's violin. "Old fiddles aren't
worth much, I'm afraid," he explained.

"What makes it a fiddle and not a violin?" I asked.

"If you're buying it from me, it's a violin. If I'm buying
it from you, it's a fiddle."


The really frightening thing about middle age is that you know
you'll grow out of it. ~~ Doris Day


And remember... Any time you have a 50-50 chance of getting
something right, there's a 90 per cent probability you'll
get it wrong.
