Birthday cake

A man walked into a bakery and said, "I want a birthday cake baked for me in the shape of the letter S."

The baker nodded, "I'll have that ready by three this afternoon. But it will cost extra for the S shape."

"Money is no object," said the customer.

At three o'clock the customer was back. The cake was proudly presented in all its serpentine glory, and the man lost his temper. "Not an ordinary S, you idiot," he shouted. "I want a beautiful flowing S in script." The baker said, "But you didn't say so. If you can come back at eight this evening, I'll have it for you, but it's going to cost extra."

The customer was back at eight. Another cake was presented. He looked at it critically and said, "I don't like the way the 'Happy Birthday' looks. Can you rewrite it? I'll pay extra for your trouble."

"I can fix that in no time. Come back in half an hour," said the baker.

By eight thirty he was back, and the cake was perfect. With a sigh of relief, the baker pulled a box down and prepared to package the cake.

"Hold it," said the customer. "I'm eating it here."

 


I didn't move

A man and a woman are driving down the highway when another car passes them. The woman notices that the occupants of the other car are young and obviously in love. The girl is sitting very close to her boyfriend as they cruise down the highway. This causes the woman to think back when she and her husband were young and in love, and wondering where the show of affection had disappeared to over the years. Finally she says to her husband, "Remember when we used to be like that young couple? Where did the love go, honey?"

Her question was met with a few moments of pensive thought. Then he replied, "I don't know, but I haven't moved."

Difference

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

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

Little Johnny raises his hand, and with a confident smile, and blurts out, "You'd be his wife!"
