A man was walking through the Sahara Desert, desperate for water, when he saw something, far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he walked toward the image, only to find a little old woman sitting at a card table with a bunch of neckties laid out on it. The thirsty man asked, “Please, I’m dying of thirst, can I have some water?” The woman replied “I don’t have any water, but why don’t you buy a tie? Here’s one that goes nicely with your outfit.” The man shouted, “I don’t want a tie, you idiot, I need water!” “Okay, don’t buy a tie. But to show you what a nice person I am, I’ll tell you that over that hill there, about four miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, they’ll give you all the water you want.” The man thanked the woman and walked away toward the hill and eventually disappeared. Three hours later he returned crawling back to where the woman was still sitting behind her card table. She said “I told you, about four miles over that hill. Couldn’t you find it?” The man rasped, “I found it all right. They wouldn’t let me in without a tie.”
Customer: “Excuse me, but are you looking to hire any help at present?” Manager: “No, we already have all the staff we need.” Customer: “Then would you mind getting someone to wait on me?”
A 4-year old son was eating an apple in the back seat of the car, when he asked, “Daddy, why is my apple turning brown?” “Because,” his dad explained, “after you ate the skin off, the meat of the apple came into contact with the air, which caused it to oxidize, thus changing the molecular structure and turning it into a different color.” There was a long silence. Then the son asked softly, “Daddy, are you talking to me?”

Two businessmen walk into a diner in the countryside. They have decided to stop there for lunch, so without ordering anything they sit down, take out sandwiches from their bags and begin to eat them. The waiter sees this and says to them, “You can’t eat your own sandwiches in here!” So the businessmen look at each other, shrug, and swap sandwiches.
Lights are on
A man was very sick. Doctors feared the worst. He is at home one day, resting in his bed. He looks up and says, “Is my wife here?” His wife replies, “Yes, dear, I’m here, next to you.” The man goes, “Are my children here?” “Yes, Daddy, we are all here,” say the children. “Are my other relatives also here?” And they say, “Yes, we are all here…”
The man sits up and says, “Then why in the world is the light on in the kitchen?”
The New Uber Driver
The passenger tapped the Uber driver on the shoulder to ask him something. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the sidewalk, and stopped inches from a shop window. For a second everything went quiet in the car, then the driver said, “Look mister, don’t ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!” The passenger apologized and said he didn’t realize that a little tap could scare him so much. The driver replied, “You’re right. I’m sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is my first day as an Uber driver. I’ve been driving a hearse for the last 15 years.”
How many States?
Old Mr. Smith, the school’s principal, made it a practice to visit the classrooms one day a week. He walked into the 4th grade class, where the children were studying the states, and asked them how many states they could name. They came up with about 40 names. Mr. Smith jokingly told them that in his day students knew the names of all the states. Little Johnny raised his hand and said, “Yes sir, but in those days there were only 13 states.”
