  1. So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathes dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, Ill leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and Ill mail you the check. Oh, and by the waydont worry about my Doberman. He wont bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot! When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathes apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldnt contain himself any longer and yelled, Shut up, you stupid ugly bird! To which the parrot replied, Get him, Spike!

  2. I’m a help desk agent and I was at work the other day when a cusomer called to complain about the sound card in his computer. He said, “the right channel is comming out of the left speaker and vice versa” so I told him to switch the speakers and he felt so stupid he hung up on me! Humor is good so laugh. Anyone else have a good one?
