It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale and an advertisement in the local paper were the main reasons for the long line that formed in front of the store by 8:30, the store’s opening time.
A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to be pushed back amid loud and colorful curses. On the man’s second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw and knocked around a bit, then thrown to the end of the line again. As he got up the second time, he said to the person at the end of the line:
“That does it! If they hit me one more time, I don’t open the store!”
A horse walked into a soda fountain and ordered an ice cream sundae with chocolate ice cream and strawberry syrup, sprinkled with nuts.
The young man behind the counter brought the sundae to the horse, who finished it off with great pleasure.
Noticing how the young man stared at him as he ate, the horse said, “I suppose you think it’s strange that a horse should come into a soda fountain and order a sundae with chocolate ice cream and strawberry syrup, sprinkled with nuts?”
“Not at all,” the young man replied. “I like it that way myself.”
The judge wanted to make sure the witness understood the solemnity of the occasion.
“Do you know what the word ‘oath’ means?” asks the judge.
“Sure do,” says the witness. “Oath means if I swear to a lie, I gotta stick with it.”
Have a good week!
