A blondeís bet

A blonde and a redhead are watching the 6 oíclock news one evening. The redhead bets the blonde $50 that the man in the lead story, who is threatening to jump from a 40 storeys building, will jump. "Iíll take that bet," the blonde replied. A few minutes later, the newscaster breaks in to report that the man had, indeed, jumped from the building. The redhead, feeling sudden guilt for having bet on such an incident, turns to the blonde and tells her that she does not need to pay the $50.

"No, a betís a bet," the blonde replies, "I owe you $ 50 ."

The redhead, feeling even guilty, replies "No, you donít understand, I saw the 3:00 edition, so I knew how it was going to turn out."

"Thatís okay," the blonde replies, "I saw it earlier too, but I didnít think heíd do it again."

 


Revealed

Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after hearing a strong preaching on the devil. One said to the other, "What do you think about all this Satan stuff?"

The other boy replied, "Well, you know how Santa Claus is turned out. Itís probably just your dad."

Some technique!

The young clerkís responsibilities included bringing the judge a hot cup of coffee at the start of every day.

Each morning the judge was enraged that the coffee cup arrived two-thirds full. The clerk explained that he had to rush to get the coffee delivered while it was still hot, which caused him to spill much of it along the way.

None of the judgeís yelling and insults produced a full cup of coffee, until he finally threatened to cut the clerkís pay by one-third if he continued to produce one-third less than the judge wanted. The next morning he was greeted with a cup of coffee that was full to the brim, and the next morning and the morning after that. The judge couldnít resist gloating over his success and smugly complimented the clerk on his new technique. "Oh, thereís not much to it," admitted the clerk happily, "I just sip some coffee right outside the coffee room, and spit it back in when I get outside your office."

Handy lesson

A Sunday school teacher was teaching her class about the difference between right and wrong.

"All right children, letís take another example," she said. "If I were to get into a manís pocket and take his billfold with all his money, what would I be?"

Little Johnny raises his hand, and with a confident smile, he blurts out, "Youíd be his wife!"
