The Nose Knows
A snowman was seen at the carrot bin in the produce section of the local grocery. He was picking his nose.
The efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution: “You do not want to try these techniques at home!” “Why not?” asked a man from the audience. “After years of not paying attention, I suddenly noticed my wife’s routine at breakfast,” the expert explained. “She made lots of trips to the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets; often she carried just a single item at a time. So, I asked her, ‘Hon, why don’t you try carrying several things at once? It’d be much more efficient.'” “Well, did your suggestions save much time?” the attendee asked.
“Actually, yes,” the efficiency expert responded. “It used to take her twenty minutes to get breakfast ready. Now I do it in seven.”
A farmer asked the vet to come out to check on his favorite bull who wasn’t doing well at all. After checking the bull’s vital signs, the vet reached in his black bag and pulled out a rather large pill. He forced open the bull’s mouth and crammed the pill down his gullet. Suddenly the bull jumped up and took off like a banshee, jumping every fence in his way. The vet exclaimed, “Well, looks like your bull is healed!” The farmer replied, “Now give me one of those pills. I’ve gotta catch him!”

At a former job on Boss Day, my direct reports got together and bought a beautiful small, engraved plaque telling me they appreciated my leadership. At the bottom of the plaque was engraved a scripture reference. I went to the Bible Gateway to look it up. What they intended was 1 Thess. 1:3, “We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
What the engraver wrote instead was 1 Thess 3:1, which reads “So when we could stand it no longer, we thought it best to be left by ourselves in Athens. My assistant heard me laughing and I told her what it said. A few minutes later the red-faced manager who had ordered the plaque came to retrieve it. It was fixed the same day. I still laugh every time I think about that one.
The next time you feel like God can’t use you, just remember…

A groom wanted to surprise his bride on their wedding day so he arranged with the bakery to have a Bible verse inscribed on the cake. He chose 1 John 4:18, which reads: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love”. But the baker, not being familiar with the Bible, got the verse wrong and on the day of his wedding the groom was surprised to find the cake inscribed with John 4:18, which read: “You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband.”
Missing Mom’s Cooking
College meals are generally unpopular with those who have to eat them, and sometimes with good reason.
“What kind of pie do you call this?” asked one student indignantly to the cafeteria attendent. “What’s it taste like?” asked the cook. “Glue!” “Then it’s apple pie. The plum pie tastes like soap.”

A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a town he planned to visit on his holiday. He wrote: I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well-groomed and very well-behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night? An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote: Sir, I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls. I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you’re welcome to stay here, too.
I told my son, “You will marry the girl I choose.” He said, “No.” I told him, “She is Bill Gate’s daughter.”
He said, “Yes.” I called Bill Gates and said, “I want your daughter to marry my son.” Bill Gates said, “No”.
I told Bill Gates, “My son is the CEO of World Bank.” Bill Gates said, “Okay”. I called the president of World Bank and asked him to make my son the CEO. He said, “No”. I told him, “My son is Bill Gate’s son-in-law.” He said, “Okay.” And this is how politics works!
