"Sorry sir," said one of the loafers, "but we've been classified dead and the umpire said we couldn't contribute in any way."
The C.O. turned to his driver and said, "Go
drag a couple of those dead bodies over here and throw them under the wheels
to give us some traction."

In order for the admissions staff of our college to get to know you, the applicant, better, we ask that you answer the following question:
Are there any significant experiences you have had, or accomplishments you have realized, that have helped to define you as a person?
I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees. I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently.
Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru. Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge. I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat 400.
My deft floral arrangements have earned
me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me. I can hurl
tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read
Paradise Lost, Moby Dick and David Copperfield in one day and still had
time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact
location of every food item in the supermarket. I sleep once a week; when
I do sleep, I sleep in a chair.
While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me. I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all
paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami.
Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down.
I have made extraordinary four course
meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams.
I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka,
and spelling bees at the
I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis. But I have not yet gone to college.

It was the accepted practice in Babylonia
4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father
would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a
honey beer, and because
their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the "honeymonth" or what we know today as the "honeymoon".
Before thermometers were invented, brewers would dip a thumb or finger into the mix to find the right temperature for adding yeast. Too cold, and the yeast wouldn't grow. Too hot, and the yeast would die. This thumb in the beer is where we get the phrase "rule of thumb". (I had always thought that the phrase "rule of thumb" is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb. I learn something new every day.)
In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints
and quarts. So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender
would yell at them to mind their own pints and quarts and settle down.
It's where we get the
phrase "mind your P's and Q's".
After consuming a bucket or two of vibrant
brew they called aul, orale, the Vikings would head fearlessly into battle
often without armor or even shirts. In fact, the term "berserk" means "bare
shirt" in Norse,
and eventually took on the meaning of their wild battles.
In 1740 Admiral Vernon of the British fleet decided to water down the navy's rum. Needless to say, the sailors weren't too pleased andcalled Admiral Vernon, Old Grog, after the stiff wool grogram coats he wore. The term "grog" soon began to mean the watered down drink itself. When you were drunk on this grog, you were "groggy", a word still in use today.
Many years ago in England, pub frequenters
had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When
they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your
whistle", is thephrase inspired by this practice. (Not wetting your lips,
your "whistle"? Now I've learned two things. Time for a break.)

"I'm recently widowed," she explains, "and I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay here."
"Not to worry," Jack says, "we'll be happy to sleep in the barn."
Nine months later, Jack gets a letter from the widow's attorney. Jack read the letter and then calls up his friend. "Bob, do you remember that good looking widow at the farm where we stayed back when?"
"Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night and have sex with her?"
"Did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?"
"Yep, I'm afraid I did."
"Well, thanks... she just died and left

Defendant should be assured that it is not
embarking on a three-week-long trip via covered wagons when it travels
to Galveston. Rather, Defendant will be pleased to discover that the highway
is paved and lighted all the way to Galveston, and thanks to the efforts
of this Court's predecessor, Judge Roy Bean, the trip should be free of
rustlers, hooligans, or vicious varmints of unsavory kind. Moreover, the
speed limit was recently increased to seventy miles per hour on most of
the road leading to Galveston, so Defendant should be able to hurtle to
justice at lightning speed. To assuage Defendant's worries about the
inconvenience of the drive, the Court notes that Houston's Hobby Airport is located about equal drivetime from downtown Houston and the Galveston courthouse. Defendant will likely find it an easy, traffic-free ride to Galveston as compared to a congested, construction-riddled drive to downtown Houston. The Court notes that any inconvenience suffered in having to drive to Galveston may likely be offset by the peacefulness of the ride and the scenic beauty of the sunny isle.
As to Defendant's argument that Houston might
also be a more convenient forum for Plaintiff, the Court notes that Plaintiff
picked Galveston as her forum of choice even though she resides in San
Antonio. Defendant argues that flight travel is available between Houston
and San Antonio but is not available between Galveston and San Antonio,
again because of the absence of a commercial airport.
Alas, this Court's kingdom for a commercial airport!
FN2. Defendant will again be pleased to know that regular limousine service is available from Hobby Airport, even to the steps of this humble courthouse, which has got lights, indoor plummin', 'lectric doors, and all sorts of new stuff, almost like them big courthouses back East.
The Court is unpersuaded by this argument because it is not this Court's concern how Plaintiff gets here, whether it be by plane, train, automobile, horseback, foot, or on the back of a huge Texas jackrabbit, as long as Plaintiff is here at the proper date and time. Thus, the Court declines to disturb the forum chosen by the Plaintiff and introduce the likelihood of delay inherent in any transfer simply to avoid the insignificant inconvenience that Defendant may suffer by litigating this matter in Galveston rather than Houston.
For the reasons stated above, Defendant's Motion
to Transfer is hereby DENIED. The parties are ORDERED to bear their own
taxable costs and expenses incurred herein to date. The parties are also
ORDERED to file nothing further on this issue in this Court, including
motions to reconsider and the like. Instead, the parties are instructed
to seek any further relief to which they feel themselves entitled in the
United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, as may be appropriate
in due course.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DONE this 6th day of November, 1996, at Galveston,

"Well sir", the farmer began, "I was
out in the barn milking ole' Bessie one hot day and as I was milking her
she kicked over the milk pail with her right front foot. The milk soaked
my overalls and underwear, so I took them off, rinsed them out in the water
trough and hung them out to dry. Then, I got a piece of rope and tied her
right foot to the floor. I sat back down and starting milking again and
the silly cow kicked over the pail with her left front foot. So I tied
that one down to the floor as well. She then
proceeded to kick over the pail with each of her back feet so I tied both of them to the floor...
Well, I thought I things under control until she whipped her tail around and slapped me right in the face. Very annoyed at her antics, I moved my stool behind her, stood up on it, and as I was in the process of tying her tail to one of the rafters, wearing nothing but my T-Shirt and boots, my wife walked into the barn!! .....No Sir!! I do not believe in Circumstantial Evidence."

The doctor thinks for a second and then turns to the wife and says, "So are we going to tell your husband or what?"
