"What's this?" I asked. "A canape?"

"Nae problem," replied the waiter. "They're free."

No one could figure out where to put the new nurse. The different departments had the staff they wanted. Finally they let her have lunch while they decided. Turns out she was a vegetarian. So they put her in a ward that had coma victims, on the theory that a vegetarian would know what to do with vegetables.

I went to the doctor for some tests. First he let a dogi nto the room. The dog barked and then left. Then a cat came in, took a good look at me, and left.

The doctor charged me $170.00

"But you didn't do any tests!" I protested.

"Sure I did. You got a lab report and cat scan."

Very nice, TC! I had to look up chiasmus, it up had I to look.

The last one stopped me for a while. Hyphenated is non-hyphenated, and non-hyphenated is hyphenated! Cool.

Just to show I'm paying attention (TeaCher's pet).

A little old lady went into the Bank one day, carrying a bag of money. She asked to speak with the bank president to open an account because, “It’s a lot of money!” The reluctant staff finally ushered her into his office.

The bank president asked her how much she would like to deposit. She replied, “$165,000!” and dumped the cash on his desk.

The president was of course curious as to how she came by all this cash, so he asked her, “Ma’am, where did you get this money?”

The old lady replied, “I make bets.”

The president then asked, “Bets? What kind of bets?”

The old woman said, “Well, for example, I’ll bet you $25,000 that your balls are square.”

“Ha!” laughed the president, “That’s a stupid bet. You can never win that kind of bet!”

The old lady challenged, “So, would you like to take my bet?”

“Sure,” said the president, “I’ll bet $25,000 that my balls are not square!”

The old lady said, “Okay, but since there is a lot of money involved, may I bring my lawyer with me tomorrow at 10:00 am as a witness?”

“Sure!” replied the confident president.

That night, he was very nervous about the bet and often checked his balls in the mirror. The next morning, at precisely 10:00 am, the little old lady appeared with her lawyer at the president’s office. She introduced the lawyer to the president and repeated the bet: “$25,000 says the president’s balls are square!” The president agreed with the bet again and the old lady asked him to drop his pants so they could all see. The president complied.

The little old lady peered closely at his balls and then asked if she could feel them. “Well, Okay,” said the president, “$25,000 is a lot of money, so I guess you should be absolutely sure.”

Just then, he noticed that the lawyer was quietly banging his head against the wall. The president said, “What wrong with your lawyer?” She replied,

“Nothing, except I bet him $100,000 that at 10:00 am today, I’d have the Bank president’s balls in my hand!”
