Think deep!

A soldier was asked to report to headquarters for assignment. The sergeant said: "We have a critical shortage of typists. I'll give you a little test. Type this," he ordered, giving him a pamphlet to copy and a sheet of paper, and pointing to a desk across the room that held a typewriter and an adding machine.
The man, quite reluctant to become a clerk typist, made a point of typing very slowly, and saw to it that his work contained as many errors as possible.

The sergeant gave the typed copy only a brief glance. "That's fine," he said; "Report for work at 8 tomorrow."

"But aren't you going to check the test?" the prospective clerk asked.

The sergeant grinned. "You passed the test when you sat down at the typewriter instead of at the adding machine."

You agree?

My sister landed a good job with an accounting firm, and after a
while she got a generous raise.

The day she found out about it, her husband picked her up from
work, and they stopped for ice cream. As they continued home, my
sister blurted out, "Isn't it hard to believe that I have a job
that pays this much money?"

Just then, she went to toss the last of her ice cream cone out
the window. However, the window was closed, and it smacked
against the glass.

Her husband replied calmly, "Yes."

While replacing some roof tiles, my friend fell from a ladder.
His ankle broken, he called out for help and his neighbor's
four-year-old came to his side.

"Don't worry," she said, disappearing into her house.

Minutes later she returned in her nurse's outfit, carrying a
medical bag.


It must have taken a lot of courage to discover that frogs'
legs are edible.


Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on
the same side


I love defenseless animals, especially in a good gravy.
