Father: Does my son cause any trouble in class?
Principal: Let me put it this way: He has a reserved seat outside my office.

What did halfback Fred Gehrke add to the helmets of his Los Angeles Rams teammates in 1948 that started a trend in pro football?

He put a team logo on them. Gehrke, an industrial design artist in the off-season, painted the team’s brown leather helmets dark blue and then decorated them with yellow ram horns.

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should make the coffee each morning. The wife said, “You should do it, because you get up first.”
The husband argued, “But you make breakfast every day. Can’t you just make the coffee at the same time?”
The wife shot back, “No, you have to do it. It says in the Bible that the man should make the coffee.”
The husband, incredulous, said, “I don’t believe that. Show me where it says that.”
So the wife fetched the Bible, opened it to the New Testament, and showed him the tops of several pages, where it indeed said: “HEBREWS.”

THE SHOW MUST GO ON

In 1991, Bea Arthur let Golden Girls producers know she’d be leaving the show at the end of the season, the show’s seventh. NBC decided to end the series—in the final episode, Arthur’s character, Dorothy, marries her boyfriend and moves out of the Miami house she shares with her friends. The rest of the cast had no interest in leaving what was still a top-thirty show, and rival network CBS thought there was some life left in the series. It bought the rights and came up with a new concept called The Golden Palace: The three remaining ladies buy and run a Miami hotel. How’d the hotel do? Not so well. The Golden Palace floundered in the ratings, finishing the year at #57. CBS canceled it in early 1993.

A man who lived in a big apartment building wondered if it might be raining, so he stuck his hand out the window to check for raindrops. As he did, a glass eye dropped right into his palm. He looked up to see where it had come from and saw a young woman looking down.
“Does this belong to you?” he asked.
She said, “Yes! Would you mind bringing it up?” The man agreed.
When he got to her apartment, he discovered she was quite attractive. She offered him a drink, and he accepted. After a while, she asked him if he’d like to stay the night. He hesitated, asking, “Do you act like this with every man you meet?”
“No,” she replied. “Only with the ones that catch my eye.”

What seabird spends the first four or more years of its life aloft?

The sooty tern, the most abundant seabird in the tropics. After fledging it only touches down on land when fully mature, and then only during the breeding season. It spends most of its time airborne, sleeping on the wing and never landing on water for fear of becoming waterlogged and incapable of flight.

As sold on TV

Remember those TV ads offering record albums “not available in stores, available only through this special TV offer”? The person who sold the most albums: Boxcar Willie. Adopting a “singing hobo” persona, the man previously known as Lecil Martin sold 10 million copies of his song collections through TV commercials in the late 1980s. Prior to that, his biggest claim to fame was that he’d had ten minor hits on the country music chart, one of which, “Bad News,” reached #36 in 1982.
