What do you get when you cross a monkey with a stick of dynamite?
A big Baboom!
A guy told his doctor that he could no longer do as much work around the house as he used to—he just didn’t seem to have the energy for chores. The doctor gave him a thorough examination and at the end the guy said, “Okay, Doc, tell me in plain English, what’s wrong with me?”
“Well,” said the doctor, “in plain English, you’re just lazy.”
“Okay,” said the guy, “now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife.”
“But what is work and what is not work? Is it work to dig, to carpenter, to plant trees, to fell trees, to ride, to fish, to hunt, to feed chickens, to play the piano, to take photographs, to build a house, to cook, to sew, to trim hats, to mend motor bicycles? All of these things are work to somebody, and all of them are play to somebody. There are in fact very few activities which cannot be classed either as work or play according as you choose to regard them.”
