Doctor: That’s nonsense.
Patient: Really? Thank you very much, doctor. I feel so much better now. How much do I owe you?
Doctor: How much have you got?

While a man was at work, the lottery office phoned to inform him of the win. His wife was very worried because the man had just recovered from a heart attack and she wondered what would happen if he found out about it too abruptly.
So, she called the pastor and he agreed to be there when the man got home.
The pastor began by asking, “What would you do if you won the lottery?”
The man replied, “Why, I’d give it all to the church.”
The pastor dropped dead on the spot.

For the second week in a row, my son and I were the only ones who showed up for his soccer team’s practice.
Frustrated I told him, “Please tell your coach that we keep coming for practice, but no one is ever here.”
My son rolled his eyes and said, “He’ll just tell me the same thing he did before.”
“Which was?”
“That practice is now on Wednesdays, not Tuesdays.”

A mother firefly was taking her children for a walk near dusk, and they came to a dark woods. “All right, kids,” she ordered, “line up, and whatever happens, don’t shine your light. There are owls in the forest and they might fly down and eat you!”
As they were moving carefully along, suddenly the mother saw a light far back.
“Stop!” she whispered. “Who lit the light back there?”
“I did,” admitted the youngster.
“You heard what I told you,” scolded the mother. “Why did you disobey?”
“Well,” said the little one, “when you gotta glow, you gotta glow.”

In the daily briefing for the weather the weather man suggested with 100% certainty that the forecast for the afternoon call for heavy rains.
Assistant: “Are you positive?”
Weatherman: “Yes indeed. I’ve lost my umbrella, I got my car washed on the way in, I’m going golfing, and my wife’s giving a lawn party.”

“Welcome to the family,” said the business owner to his new son-in-law. “To show you how much we care for you, I am making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory everyday and learn the operation.”
“I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise.”
“Well, then you’ll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.”
“I hate office work. I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk.”
“Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I just made you half owner of a money-making industry, but you don’t like factories, and won’t work in an office. What am I going to do with you?”
“Easy,” said the son-in-law. “Buy me out.”

It always irked my mother that her grocery store didn’t carry eggs in packages of six—just by the dozen.
Then one day, her wish came true. She walked into the grocery and found fresh eggs in cartons of six!
She was so excited, she bought two!
