Family Cheer:      All sing while swaying back and forth: “We are family. We are family”

Oh Brother Cheer:Divide group in two.  One side says, “Oh, brother” then the other side replies “Oh, sister!”  Go back and forth several times getting louder each time.

My uncle can shoot faster than any other man in the west.  He can even shoot without removing his gun from the holster.

What do they call your uncle?

Toeless Joe.

Mom just bawled me out for eating with my fingers.

Well, you should have known better.  It isn’t very clean.

If the food isn’t clean enough to pick up with your fingers, it isn't fit to eat.

Johnny:      My father’s dead.

Teacher:    Oh, I’m sorry, Johnny.  In that case, what did he do before he died?

Johnny:      He went blue and collapsed.
