The stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only
one carrion allowed per passenger."
2. Did you hear that NASA recently
put a bunch of Holsteins into low earth orbit?
They called it the herd shot 'round the world.
3. Two boll weevils grew up in South Carolina.
One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor.
The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much.
The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.
4. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when they lit
a fire in the craft, it sank proving once again that you can't have your kayak
and heat it, too.
5. A three legged dog walks into a
saloon in the Old West. He slides

6. Did you hear about the Buddhist

wanted to transcend dental medication.
7. A group of chess enthusiasts
checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent
tournament victories. After about
an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
"But why?" they asked, as they moved off.

them up for adoption. One of them
goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Amal."
The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan."

wishes she also had a picture of Amal. Her
husband responds, "They're twins! If
you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal."
9. These friars were behind on
their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds.
Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist
across town thought the competition was unfair.
He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not.
He went back and begged the friars to close.
They ignored him. So, the
rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town
to "persuade" them to close. Hugh
beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't
close up shop. Terrified, they did
so, thereby proving that: Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

Boy: We sure had a great time at the Harvest Celebration.
When my Dad said we would have a big party I didn't know it would last
for 3 days.
Boy :Yea! We invited 92
Indians, plus all our families. We
helped our Moms cook for days. It
was fun to play games, have shooting contests and relays during the celebration.
Boy: I liked the food we cooked, boiled eel, lobster, roasted pigeon,
stuffed cod, journey cakes, corn meal bread with nuts and succotash.
Boy: The Indians brought food too, turkeys, pumpkins, sweet potatoes,
cranberry sauce. And, they brought
deer meat, too.
5th Boy: I liked the
popcorn the best...I never ate popcorn before. I heard my Dad say Governor Bradford has decided to
have a celebration again next year, in 1622.
He wants to call it Thanksgiving
