A Question That Completely Ruined the Moment

One day my wife was out shopping and I was watching our children ages five and two. My son was playing with the dog. My daughter, the two year old, was playing with her Barbie.

She and Barbie were having a little coffee get-together. I thought it was very nice of her to offer me a cup of coffee, and happily accepted even though it was just water.

After several cups and lots of praise for such delicious coffee, my wife came rolling in with the groceries. She watched as my daughter brought in other cup of coffee, started laughing, and asked me how many cups I'd drank.

When I admitted that I was waterlogged from all the coffee, my wife broke into hysterical laughter. Through the tears of laughter rolling down her cheeks she asked me a question that completely ruined that precious moment forever.

'

Did it ever occur to you', she said, 'that the only place a baby can reach water is the toilet?'

A Friend's Passing

Bob and Ed were best friends and had been for fifty plus years. After Ed died, Bob was inconsolable for many weeks. He couldn't eat, he couldn't sleep, he just wanted to sit in misery.

Finally one night, Bob was able to fall into a fitful sleep and Ed came to him in a dream.

"Ed! I've really missed you. Tell me, what's it like on the other side?"

"Well...it's GREAT! I can run like the wind if I want to because my knees don't hurt any more. If I get hungry, there's always food around. If I want to sleep, there's always a comfortable place to lay down under my feet. If I get horny, there are willing females all over the place."

Bob replies "Heaven sounds like a great place!"

"About That" "I'm a Rabbit in Tennessee"

Fun Facts

Q: Why do men’s clothes have buttons on the right while women’s clothes have buttons on the left?

A: When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put the buttons on the maid’s right! And that’s where women’s buttons have remained since.
