I never give up on my dreams!

(I just keep sleeping until I’m late for work.)

A blonde was at home watching TV with her friends when she heard a noise. She ran out just in time to see a thief drive off in her car.

“Did you see their face?” her friends asked when she came back inside.

“No, but it’s okay — I got the license plate number!”

The fact that the camera is off-center makes me suspect that this video was intentionally staged, but I still found it amusing.

A farmer was driving along the road with a load of fertilizer. He stopped briefly in front of a house to check his tire. As he was getting back in his truck, a little boy playing in front of the house called out, “What’ve you got in your truck?”

“Fertilizer,” the farmer replied.

“What are you going to do with it?” asked the little boy.

“Put it on strawberries,” answered the farmer.

“You ought to live here,” the little boy advised him. “We put sugar and cream on ours.”

A boy was assigned a paper on childbirth and asked his parents, “How was I born?”

“Well honey,” said the slightly prudish mother, “the stork brought you to us.”

“Oh,” replied the boy. “Well, how did you and daddy get born?” he asked.

“Oh, your grandparents found us under a rock.”

“Well, how were grandpa and grandma born?” he persisted.

“Well darling, they were found under a cabbage leaf,” said the mother.

Several days later, the boy handed in his paper to the teacher who read with confusion the opening sentence: “This report has been very difficult to write due to the fact that there hasn’t been a natural childbirth in my family for three generations.”

The groom’s uncle said, “Good luck young man. A few years down the line you will look back on today and think that it was the happiest day of your life.”

“Uncle, do you mean tomorrow?” asked the groom. “I’m not getting married until tomorrow.”

The uncle nodded sadly and replied, “I know.”
