A copier repairman was getting ready to leave an office when he handed the manager the bill. “Where do you get off charging me $200 to fix the copier?” the manager demanded. “You were here for five minutes, and all you did was kick the darn thing!”
“Well, sir, it’s $50 for the kick, and the other $150 is for knowing where to kick!”

In 1986, Tanya, 6, started choking on a piece of candy. Her friend Brent, 5, ran over and squeezed her from behind. Brent’s mother screamed for him to stop, but thankfully he didn’t listen—a moment later the candy popped out and Tanya started breathing again. Where’d he learn that maneuver? “Benson was choking,” said Brent, who’d recently watched a rerun of Benson. “A guy squeezed him and lifted him up and saved Benson!”
