What, No Birthday Present?

A Jewish gentleman, fresh out of gift ideas, bought his mother-in-law a large plot in an expensive cemetery.

On her next birthday, he bought her nothing. She was quick to comment loud and long on his thoughtlessness.

“Well, you haven’t used the gift I gave you last year.”

Saving Hillary

Sell Art Online

 

Hillary Clinton was out jogging one morning along the parkway when she tripped, fell over the bridge railing and landed in the
creek below.

Before the Secret Service guys could get to her, 3 kids who were fishing pulled her out of the water. She was so grateful
she offered the kids whatever they wanted.

The first kid says, “I want to go to Disneyland.”

 Hillary says, “No problem, I’ll take you there on my special senator’s airplane”

The second kid says, “I want a new pair of Nike Air Jordan’s.”

Hilary says, “I’ll get them for you and even have Michael sign them!!”

The third kid says, “I want a motorized wheelchair with a built-in TV and stereo headset!”

Hilary is a little perplexed by this and says, “But you don’t look like you’re handicapped.”

The kid says, “I will be after my dad finds out I saved your butt from drowning!!!

Vegetarian Chicken

Each Friday night after work, Santa would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a tandoori chicken and some meat kebabs. But, all of his neighbours
were strict Catholics and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from
eating chicken and meat on a Friday.

The delicious aroma from the grilled meats was causing such a problem
for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their Priest. The
Priest came to visit Santa, and suggested that he become a Catholic.

After several classes and much study, Santa attended Mass and as the
priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, You were born a Sikh,
and raised a Sikh, but now, you are a Catholic.”

Santa’s neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived.
The wonderful aroma of tandoori chicken and meat kebabs filled the
neighbourhood.

The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors and, as he rushed
into Santa’s backyard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he
stopped and watched in amazement.

There stood Santa, holding a small bottle of holy water which he
carefully sprinkled over the grilling meats and chanted: “Oye, you waz
born a chicken, and you waz born a lamb, you waz raised a chicken, and
you waz raised a lamb but now yara, you are a potato and tomato”!

The wisdom of our ancestors

The wisdom of our ancestors

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors
