Work at home

HARRY walks into his supervisor’s office.

"Boss," he says, "we’re doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."

"We’re short-handed, Harry," the boss replies. "I can’t give you the day off."

"Thanks, boss," says Harry, "I knew I could count on you."

Same condition

A woman called up a pet store and said, "Send me 30,000 cockroaches at once."

"What in the world do you want with 30,000 cockroaches?" asked the astonished clerk.

"Well," replied the woman, "I am moving today and my lease says I must leave the premises in exactly the same condition I found it."

Parting shot

A woman brought an old picture of her dead husband, wearing a hat, to the photographer. She wanted to know if the photographer could remove the hat from the picture. He convinced her he could easily do that, and asked her what side of his head he parted his hair on.

"I forget," she said. "But you can see that for yourself when you take off his hat."

Queer coincidence

Teacher: "Can anybody give an example of COINCIDENCE?"

One student: "Sir, my mother and father got married on the same day and at the same time."

Mental block

A husband reading a newspaper says to his wife, "You know, honey, I think there might be some real merit to what this article says, that the intelligence of a father often proves a stumbling block to the son."

"Well, thank heaven," said the wife, "at least our James has nothing standing in his way".
