There was a little lad who had to start school .

His parents didn’t have any particular religious beliefs , but they still sent him to the Church of England school…it just happened to be the nearest .

On the first day home from school the lad was whinging and crying …like some lads do .

This went on for a week , and his mum and dad had to put up with a weekend of tantrums .

Monday came , and the lad went off to school…so they thought .

On Tuesday they received a message from the school …" Why was Bobby absent from school yesterday ? "…of course , the little monkey had been playing truant .

Mum and dad weren’t at all happy , so they got Bobby into the nearby Methodist school .

He was there a week , and there seemed to be no problems .

Another week went by…still no problems .

But on the Wednesday of the third week they received a message from school…" Why was Bobby not in school on Monday and Tuesday ? " …truanting again .

Bobby said , " I just hate schools …I never , ever want to go again . "

Mum and dad were at their wit’s end . So they opted for the local Catholic school .

Screaming and shouting , they had to drag him there , but they got him inside eventually

A week went by…no sign of trouble . A second week went by…no messages from school .

At the end a month without problems mum and dad asked Bobby ," Well , son , you seem to like it at the Catholic school . Are you enjoying it ? "

Bobby stood silent …grimaced …shook his head …and then blurted out , " I just hate it , but the last guy who tried to get out from there is still nailed to the classroom wall . And I ain’t gonna end up like him ! "

The Texas Aggie platoon leader was ordered to form a firing squad.

“Everybody!” he hollered; " Get in a circle!"

On a Myer hairdryer:

(Darn, and that’s the only time I have to work on my hair).

On packaging for a K-Mart iron:
“Do not iron clothes on body”.
(But wouldn’t this save me more time?)

“Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication”.(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5 year olds with head colds off those forklifts.)

(And…I’m taking this because???)

On most brands of Christmas lights:

(Talk about a news flash!)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
“Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts”.

I don’t blame the company, I blame the parents for this one:
On a child’s superman costume:
“Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly”.

On a Swedish chainsaw:
“Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals”.
(Was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

Christmas is coming and elderly man thinks, it’s too much trouble buying all those presents for all my kids and grandkids and great grandkids. I’ll give them money instead.
So writes out a pile of generous cheques and a pile of Christmas cards. In the cards he writes “buy your own present.”
Later after Christmas he wonders why so few of his relatives rang him up to thank him for the cash. So goes back to his writing table and under a heap of other stuff he finds the cheques

a political joke you may want to pass

A CNN reporter walks into a neighborhood tavern and is about to order a drink when he sees a guy at the end of the bar wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

It didn’t take an Einstein to know the guy was a Donald Trump supporter.

The CNN guy shouts over to the bartender, loudly enough that everyone in the bar could hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, except for that Trump supporter.”

After the drinks were handed out the Trump guy gives the CNN guy a big smile, waves at him and says, in an equally loud voice, “Thank you!”

This infuriates the CNN reporter. So he once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the guy wearing the Trump hat.

As before, this doesn’t seem to bother the Trump guy. He just continues to smile and again yells, “Thank you!”

So the CNN guy again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Trump guy.

And again the Trump guy just smiles and yells back, “Thank you!”

At that point the aggravated CNN reporter asks the bartender, “What the hell is the matter with that Trump supporter?

I’ve ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him and all the silly a$$ does is smile and thank me. Is he nuts?”

“Nope,” replies the bartender. “He owns the place.”
