Thoughts for the day…
A generous friend supplies us with some thought for today, and I hope you find them as interesting as I did, and that you haven't heard them before. Hang on, and here we go:
"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked, sarcastically.
Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.
"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."
The American said, "The last time I was here, didn't have to show it."
"Impossible," barked the officer. "Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France.
The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, "Well, when came ashore to Omaha Beach on D-Day in '44 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find any French men to show it to."
Now for something a little different.
A mechanic was busy removing the cylinder head from a motorcycle when a heart surgeon came in to have the manager take a look at his bike. The mechanic called to the doctor:
"How come I take the valves out of this engine, fix 'em and put 'em back so the engine works like new. So why do I get such a small salary, you get big bucks for doing essentially the same work?"
The surgeon smiled, leaned over and whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running."
This kid is a born doctor. He can't write anything anyone can read.
A woman went to her psychiatrist and said: "Doctor, my husband thinks he's a refrigerator." "That's not so bad," said the Doctor. "It's rather harmless complex." "Well, maybe," said the woman. "But he sleeps with his mouth open and the light keeps me awake."
More of these probably will follow. Stay tuned.
