The perfect Christmas tree...

Thursday, December 19, 2013

At first sight we knew it was the perfect Christmas tree. Tall and full, with no bare spots. Even our grown children were impressed.

"Wow," said my son, "if you didn't know it was real, it could easily pass as artificial."

SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD?

Thursday, December 19, 2013

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GUILTY OF LOOKING AT OTHERS YOUR OWN AGE AND THINKING, SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD??

MY NAME IS PAULINE, AND I WAS THE SITTING IN WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST.

I NOTICED HIS DDS DIPLOMA ON THE WALL, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME. SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK-HAIRED BOY WITH THE SAME NAME HAD BEEN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SOME 30-ODD YEARS AGO.

COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?

UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT.

THIS BALDING, GRAY-HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE.

AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ATTENDED MORGAN PARK HIGH SCHOOL ...

'YES. YES, I DID. I'M A MUSTANG,' HE GLEAMED WITH PRIDE.

'WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?' I ASKED.

HE ANSWERED, 'IN 1975. WHY DO YOU ASK?'

'YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!', I EXCLAIMED.

HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.

THEN, THAT UGLY,

OLD,

BALDING,

WRINKLED FACED,

FAT-BUTTED,

GRAY-HAIRED,

DECREPIT

SON-OF-A-GUN

ASKED,


"WHAT DID YOU TEACH?"

  I think because of the way you phrased it, you were in my class, also sounds to me that you were teaching the class. He might of thought you don't look older than me but just didn't express that. If you said, you were a classmate of mine that would of sounded different.

    Oh no, did you get a new dentist. I find myself asking that same question, only I am saying, please I hope I don't look that old.

    Cute....sometimes when I am walking in the mall and I observe people I think they are older than me but then I wonder maybe I am not....it is hard to figure out sometimes.

Late Nite Funnies

Thursday, December 19, 2013

The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $586 million. The odds of winning are 1 in 259 million. Those are the same odds of Tony Romo throwing a pass to his own teammate in the 4th quarter. -Jay Leno

While Pope Francis was visiting a children's center, a young boy snatched the Pope's hat off. And because of a little-known Vatican law, that boy is now the new Pope — Pope Timmy. -Conan O'Brien

Another Kardashian marriage is kaput. The proceedings for the divorce actually began when she said, "I do." -David Letterman

Over the weekend, China became the third nation to land on the moon. This morning NASA issued a statement: "Sending stuff to the moon is so 1960s. Call us when you get to Mars." -Craig Ferguson

My grandpa told me to remember two things in life. Look out for Number One, and remember your number. --Orville Cogswell

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian. --Dennis Wholey

Would you be more content with six million dollars or six children? Six children, certainly. Because a man with six million dollars will always want more.

Political correctness is in full swing this holiday season. Kids can't even call Santa's helpers "elves" anymore. They have to be known as "undocumented little people." -Jay Leno

A big movie opened today — "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." I want to see it because I love movies about tiny people. In fact, I'll see anything that stars Tom Cruise. -Craig Ferguson

Are you going to see those big "Hobbit" films? They have done a prequel, and they have done a sequel. I believe this one is a NyQuil. -David Letterman

In a new interview, Oprah said she’s glad she never had kids because they would probably hate her. Seriously? She gives away free cars and lets people jump on the couch. I mean, she sounds fun to me. -Jimmy Fallon
