Short Runway

Sell Art Online

 

The airliner from Moron Airways was preparing to land at O’Hare Field.

The pilot radioed the control tower that he thought the runway was too short to land on. The tower radioed back that it was more than long enough.

In a few minutes the pilot again radioed about the runway length, only to receive the same reply. On final approach, the pilot radioed again that he thought the runway was too short, only to receive an exasperated reply that the runway was long enough and to go ahead and land.

Sure enough, the plane touched down and ran into the passenger terminal, resulting in major damage and great loss of life.
After the plane came to a halt, the pilot turned to the co-pilot said, “See, I told them the runway was too short”.

To which the co-pilot replied, “Yeah, but did you see how wide that it was?”

Is It Better to Be Single or Married Part 2

The Great Debate: Is It Better To Be Single or Married?

Questions concerning love and wisdom were posed to a group of children (ages 5 to 10).

Their responses were amazingly astute and very enlightening, thus proving that all we need to know, we probably learned in kindergarten.

CONFIDENTIAL OPINIONS ABOUT LOVE:
“I’m in favor of love as long as it doesn’t happen when ‘The Simpsons’ are on TV.” (Anita, 6)
*
“Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I’ve been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me.”(Bobby, 8)
*
“I’m not rushing into being in love. I’m finding fourth grade hard enough.” (Regina, 10)

PERSONAL QUALITIES NECESSARY TO BE A GOOD LOVER:
“One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills.”(Ava, 8)

SOME SUREFIRE WAYS TO MAKE A PERSON FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU:
“Tell them that you own a whole bunch of candy stores.” (Del, 6)
*
“Don’t do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain’t the same thing as love.” (Alonzo, 9)
*
“One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it’s something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me” (Bart, 9)

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF TWO ADULTS EATING DINNER AT A RESTAURANT ARE IN LOVE?
“Just see if the man picks up the check. That’s how you can tell if he’s in love.” (John, 9)
*
“Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food,” (Brad, 8)
*
“It’s love if they order one of those desserts that are on fire.

They like to order those because it’s just like their hearts are on fire.”
(Christine, 9)

WHAT MOST PEOPLE ARE THINKING WHEN THEY SAY “I LOVE YOU”:
“The person is thinking: Yeah, I really do love him, but I hope he showers at least once a day.” (Michelle, 9)

HOW A PERSON LEARNS TO KISS:
“You learn it right on the spot, when the gooshy feelings get the best of you.” (Doug, 7)
*
“It might help if you watched soap operas all day.” (Carin, 9)

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
“It’s never okay to kiss a boy. They always slobber all over you…that’s why I stopped doing it.” (Jean, 10)

HOW TO MAKE LOVE ENDURE:
“Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work.” (Tom, 7)
*
“Don’t forget your wife’s name…that will mess up the love.” (Roger, 8)
*
“Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take the trash out.” (Randy, 8)

Growing Up in the 50s: A Social Life And Milking

photo fo two people, a child and an adult looking at a sunset over the ocean

Life was a lot slower and simpler in the fifties and sixties.

Written by Gary Wonning

Sometimes it was hard to squeeze a social life into the farm scene. Going to the basketball games was a required course in school, missing a ball game was out of the question, a person could get banned from his community from such an atrocious act.

When the game was played at a school several miles from home, it was a real challenge.

There was only about forty-five minutes from the time I would arrive home from school until the bus would leave from the school to go to the game.

That didn’t leave much time for milking thirty head of cows.

But I got’er done. The stanchions held four cows and we had two milkers. So I would run two cows in, wash them, put the milkers on, feed them, bring two more in, prepare them, take the milkers off the first two and put them on the second two and repeat the process until I finished.

I could milk thirty cows in thirty minutes. At these stressed times, the cows didn’t give much milk, the milkers weren’t on long enough, and they didn’t eat much either. But they made up for it the next morning.

You couldn’t do that twice in a row or the cows would get mastitis, but when there is an emergency such as getting to a ball game, you gotta do what you gotta do.

The Pancake Breakfast

Art Prints

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, Ryan, 3.

The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.

Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. “If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, ‘Let my brother have the first
pancake. I can wait.'”

Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, “Ryan, you be Jesus!”

I Want to be a Minister

After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, “Mom, I’ve decided to become a minister when I grow up.”

“That’s okay with us, but what made you decide that?”

“Well,” said the little boy, “I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen.”

Idiot Sightings

Photography Prints

 

Sighting #1:

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate, when the airport employee asked, “Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?”

I said, “If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?” He smiled and nodded knowingly, “That’s why we ask.”

Sighting #2:

The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to cross the street.

I was crossing with an intellectually challenged co-worker of mine when she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I
explained that it signals to blind people when the light is red.

She responded, appalled, “What on earth are blind people doing driving?”

Sighting #3:

At a good-bye lunch for an old and dear co-worker who is leaving the company due to “right-sizing,” our manager spoke
up and said, “This is fun. We should have lunch like this more often.”

Not another word was spoken. We just looked at each other like deer staring into the headlights of an approaching truck.

Sighting #4:

I worked with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the life of her could not understand why her system would not turn on.

Blonde Jokes, Old Joke, New Twist

A bartender is sitting behind the bar on a typical day when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant blondes.

They come up to the bar, order five bottles of champagne and ten glasses, take their order over and sit down at a large table. The corks are popped, the glasses are filled and they begin toasting and chanting. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days

Soon, three more blondes arrive, take up their drinks and the chanting grows. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.
Two more blondes show up and soon their voices are joined in raising the roof. 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.

Finally, the tenth blonde comes in with a picture under her arm. She walks over to the table, sets the picture in the middle and the table erupts.

Up jump the others, they begin dancing around the table, exchanging high fives, all the while chanting 51 days, 51 days, 51 days.

The bartender can’t contain his curiosity any longer, so he walks over to the table.

There in the center is a beautifully framed child’s puzzle of the “Cookie Monster.”

When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the bartender asks one of the blondes. “What’s all the chanting and celebration about?”

The blonde who brought in the picture pipes up, “Everyone thinks that blondes are dumb and they make fun of us, so we decided to set the record straight.

Ten of us got together, bought that puzzle and put it together.

The side of the box said 2-4 years, but we put it together in 51 days'”.
