Dennis was down at the local police station wanting to talk to the burglar 
who'd broken in his house the night before. 
The desk sergeant was adamant. "No. You'll get your chance in court, sir." 
"No, no, you don't understand," Dennis said. "I want to know how the hell 
he got into the house without waking my wife. I've been trying to do that 
for years!" 
"I'm not saying that the customer service in my bank is bad, but I went in 
the other day and asked the clerk to check my balance. She leaned over and 
pushed me!"

One day I was reading a newspaper. On page two was a picture of a famous 
politician and his gorgeous wife. 
Slightly jealous of the politician, I turned to my wife and said, "It's 
unfair that the biggest jerks in the world catch the most beautiful 
My wife smiled and replied, "Why, thank you dear." 
A young girl boards Flight BA3345 from Heathrow to New York and finds a 
seat in 1st class. As the Stewardesses check all the passengers, one 
Stewardess asks the young girl for her ticket. The young girl hands over 
her ticket, to which the Stewardess replied: "I'm sorry, but you are sat 
in the wrong seat" in a helpful manner. 
"I'm young, blonde and beautiful, and I'm going to New York to be a 
Supermodel and marry a millionaire!" replied the young girl. The Stewardess 
was surprised at the young girl's answer, so she decided to call the Senior 
Steward. The Senior Steward decided that nobody was getting a free upgrade 
to first, so she also informed the young girl that she had sat in the 
wrong seat and was to sit in economy at the rear. "I'm young, blonde and 
beautiful, and I'm going to New York to be a Supermodel and marry a 
millionaire!" replied the young girl in a firmer tone. 
The Senior Steward thought that this might be a job for the Co-pilot, so 
she asked the Co-pilot to try to resolve this matter. Therefore, the 
Co-pilot decided to have a go to see if he could move the young girl. 
"Excuse me 
Miss, but you're sat in the wrong seat" said the Co-pilot. "I'm young, 
blonde and beautiful, and I'm going to New York to be a Supermodel and 
marry a millionaire!" replied the young girl. "I'm sorry Miss, but if you 
don't move to your proper seat, I'll have to ask you to leave the 
aircraft" replied the Co-pilot. "I'm young, blonde and beautiful, and I'm 
going to New 
York to be a Supermodel and marry a millionaire!" replied the young girl. 
Being new to this game, the Co-pilot decided to consult the Captain. 
"Let me sort her out" said the Captain. The Captain then approached the 
young girl and whispered in her ear. As the Captain returned to the Flight 
deck, the young girl got out of the seat and proceeded down the aircraft 
towards her proper seat. "Cor, what did you say to her?" asked the 
To which the Captain replied:  "I told her 1st class wasn't going to New 
After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their 
holiday away from school. 
One child wrote the following: 
We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to 
live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to The 
Villages, in Florida. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted 
green to look like grass.. They ride around on their bicycles and wear 
name tags because they don't know who they are anymore. 
They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it 
fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't 
do them very well.. 
There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats 
At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. 
He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, 
and go cruising in their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. 
And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds. Some of the 
people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get 
out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck. 
My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and 
says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too. When I earn my 
retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people 
out, so they can visit their grandchildren.
