Promising work

A young man was applying for a job in a big company. "Iím sorry," said the personnel manager, "but the firm is`A0overstaffed; we have more employees now than we really need." "Thatís all right," replied the young man, "the little bit of work I do wonít be noticed anyway."

Baby care

After a young couple brought their new baby home, the wife suggested that her husband should try his hand at changing diapers. "Iím busy, Iíll do the next one," he said. The next time came around and she asked again. The husband narrowed his eyes as he looked at his wife. "I didnít mean the next diaper. I meant the next baby."

Smart will

An elderly woman from Brooklyn decided to prepare her will. She told her rabbi she had two final requests. First, she wanted to be cremated, and second, she wanted her ashes scattered over Walmart. "Walmart!" The rabbi exclaimed, "Why Walmart?" "Then Iíll be sure my daughters will visit me twice a week."

Sunny wisdom

My quiet Saturday morning ended abruptly when my 12-year-old son, Billy, and one of his friends burst through the door. "Hey dad, have you met the new neighbours?" Billy asked. "No." "Come on Dad, you have to meet them." "Some other time; Iím busy." "Dad, you have to meet them now." From the urgency in Billyís voice, I assumed the neighbours were waiting outside. I set aside my project and went to the front of the house. No one was there. "Where are they?" I asked. "Well, dad," he explained, "we havenít met them yet either, but our baseball is in their living room."
