Teacher: Buddy, how many times am I going to have to punish you for causing trouble in class?
Buddy: Forty-seven.
Teacher: Why forty-seven?
Buddy: That’s how many days are left until summer vacation.

On April 8, 1986, the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (the state’s public television system) acquired the rights to The Lawrence Welk Show, which had been canceled by ABC in 1982 after 27 seasons, and sold it to PBS stations all over the country. Since then, reruns have aired at 7 P.M. on Saturday on many affiliates, the same time slot it had in its original run on ABC. It’s still one of PBS’s most-watched regular series.

My BFF is a 3rd grade teacher.
She will LOVE this joke !
I think teachers count the school
days left MORE than students

NOT that my Dear Jack is OLD
BUT
as a teenager in the LATE 50s
he was a pinsetter !
(So he says, I was a mere infant then!)

awwww
My paternal grandmother LOVED
Welk. She watched it faithfully.
So I watched it with her when
spending the night (60s-70s).
emoticon emoticon emoticon
I still watch it several times a year
on PBS for nostalgia and memories
of her. Some of it is CORNY, but
it gives me a warm, cozy feeling

Interesting law, too


Hope you had a Marvelous Monday !
Have a Terrific Tuesday !

Great shoe pun?

Did I get this one from YUO ?

TIGHT SHOES

A man walks into a shoe store, and tries on a pair of shoes.

"How do they feel?" asks the sales clerk.

"Well, they feel a bit tight." replies the man.

The assistant promptly bends down and has a look at the shoes and the man's feet.

"Try pulling out on the tongue." offers the clerk.

"Nath theyth sthill feelth a bith tighth." He says.

Friday Assortment

Friday, April 05, 2013

Mark and Diane had just brought their new baby girl home from the hospital. It wasn’t long before the baby needed a diaper change, and Diane suggested that Mark take care of it.
“I’m busy,” he said. “I promise I’ll do the next one.”
The next time came around soon, and Diane again asked Mark to change the baby’s diaper. Mark looked at Diane and said, innocently, “I didn’t mean the next diaper—I meant the next baby.”

Tommy Cooper was a British comedian well known for performances that would often go intentionally awry. During an April 1984 appearance on the variety show Live from Her Majesty’s, he collapsed onstage as millions of British viewers watched at home. Everyone in the theater that night thought it was a gag (he’d done that bit before). The live audience continued laughing, completely oblivious to what was going on—Cooper, 63, was having a massive heart attack as he keeled over backward behind the red stage curtain. On the other side, his manager struggled to pull him backstage while the show’s director frantically cut to a commercial. Cooper was pronounced dead shortly afterward.
