Road Kill!

September 18, 2013

crowHere is a delightful bit of humor making the virtual circuit (email, internet, facebook, etc.) . . . enjoy!  Happy Hump Day . . . it’s downhill to the weekend from here!

“Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found about 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.

A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone’s relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu.  The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts.  However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the birds’ beaks and claws.  By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impacts with trucks, while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.

MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck versus car kills.  The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly determined the cause: when crows eat road kill, they always have a lookout Crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.  They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout “Cah,” not a single one could shout “Truck.”

Not Your Ordinary Traffic Stop!

April 20, 2013

I’m not sure where this originated, but it made its way to facebook and once it crossed my radar screen I just couldn’t resist sharing this humorous dialogue.  Enjoy!

Woman: “Is there a problem, Officer?”
Officer: “Ma’am, you were speeding.”
Woman: “Oh, I see.”
Officer: “May I see your driver’s license please?”
Woman: “I’d give it to you but I don’t have one.”
Officer: “You don’t have one?”
Woman: “I’ve lost it 4 times for drunk driving.”
Officer: “Oh, I see. May I see your vehicle registration papers please.”
Woman: “I can’t do that either.”
Officer: “Why not?”
Woman: “I stole this car.”
Officer: “You stole it?”
Woman: “Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.”
Officer: “You what?”
Woman: “His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.”

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars encircle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half-drawn gun.

Officer2: “Ma’am, could you step out of your vehicle please!”

The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Woman: “Is there a problem sir?”
Officer2: “One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.”
Woman: “Murdered the owner?”
Officer2: “Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.”

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer2: “Is this your car, ma’am?”
Woman: “Yes, here are the registration papers.” The officer is quite stunned.
Officer2: “One of my officers claims that you do not have a driver’s license.”

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer. The officer snaps opens the clutch purse and examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer2: “Thank you ma’am, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.”
Woman: “I’ll bet you the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too!”

Laugh Early, Laugh Often!

January 29, 2012

We all know that laughter is good for us.  It has been quoted as being “the best medicine,” it has been credited with reducing stress, it can boost your immune system, it can ease pain, and it can bring you greater happiness.  So why aren’t we laughing more than we do?  Why do we go through the day so serious all the time?  (The we that I’m referring to is really me . . . along with myself, and I . . . they go everywhere with me.)  Perhaps it is time to change this.  And to get us started . . .

The Very Bad Accident

Two men got out of their cars after they collided at an intersection.  One took a flask from his pocket and said to the other, “Here, maybe you’d like a nip to calm your nerves.”  “Thanks,” he said, and took a long pull from the container. “Here, you have one too,” he added, handing back the whiskey.  “Well, I’d rather not,” said the first.  “At least not until after the police have been here.”

“The most wasted day of all is that during which we have not laughed.”  — Sebastian R. N. Chamfort

Some Friday Humor!

March 5, 2010

I ran across this great quotation  . . .

“If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.”  (Source unknown)  

 . . . and for some crazy reason (perhaps the concept of “destroying evidence”), it reminded me of an old police joke that is a real groaner.

Q.  How many police officers does it take to throw a handcuffed prisoner down a flight of stairs?

A.  None, he tripped.

Happy Friday!
