A Funny Thing Happened in France

As it happens, an Englishman in France was totally drunk. A French policeman stopped the Englishman’s car and asked if he had been drinking.

With great difficulty, the Englishman admitted he had been drinking all day. His daughter got married that morning and he drank champagne and a few bottles of wine at the reception, then had “many” single malt Scotches after that.

Quite upset, the policeman proceeded to administer an alcohol breath test to the Englishman and verified that he was indeed totally sloshed. He asked the Englishman if he knew why, under French law, he was going to be arrested.

The Englishman answered with a bit of humor, saying, “No sir, I do not! But while we’re asking questions, do you realize that this is a British car and that my wife is driving… on the other side?”

Katlik

Three little boys were concerned because they couldn't get anyone to play with them. They decided it was because they had not been baptized and didn't go to Sunday School. So, they went to the nearest church. Only the janitor was there.

One said, "We need to be baptized because no one will come out and play with us. Will you baptize us?" "Sure," said the janitor. He took them into the bathroom and dunked their heads in the toilet bowl, one at a time. Then he said, "Now go and play."

When they got outside, dripping wet, one of them asked, "What religion do you think we are?"

The oldest one said, "We're not Katlick, because they pour the water on you. We're not Babtis because they dunk all of you in it. We're not Methdiss because they just sprinkle you."

The littlest one said, "Didn't you smell that water?"

"Yeah! What do you think that means?"

"I think it means that we're Pisscopalians."

Mildred was Heartbroken

Mildred was a 93-year-old woman who was particularly despondent over the recent death of her husband Earl. She decided that she would just kill herself and join him in death.

Thinking that it would be best to get it over with quickly, she took out Earl's old army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart since it was so badly broken in the first place.

Not wanting to miss this vital organ and become a vegetable and a burden to someone, she called her doctor's office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be.

"On a woman," the doctor said, "your heart would be just below your left breast."

Later that night, Mildred was admitted to the hospital with a bullet wound to her left knee.

Fascinate…

A teacher asked her students to use the word "fascinate" in a sentence.

Molly said, "My family went to my granddaddy's farm, and we saw all his pet sheep. It was fascinating."

The teacher said, "That was good, but I wanted you to use the word "fascinate."

Sally raised her hand. She said, "My family went to See Rock City and I was fascinated."

The teacher said, "Well, that was good, Sally, but I want the word "fascinate."

Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher hesitated because Little Johnny was noted for his bad language. She finally decided there was no way he could damage the word "fascinate," so she called on him.

Little Johnny said, "My cousin's wife has a sweater with ten buttons, but her breasts are so big, she can only fasten eight."

The teacher just shook her head.

"Why, the same thing you're doing", replied the uncle.
