This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody,
Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done,
and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody
would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that
Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed
Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that
electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged,
models deposed (and eventually disfigured) and dry cleaners depressed?
Laundry workers could decrease, eventually becoming depressed and
depleted! Even more, bedmakers will be debunked, baseball players will
be debased, landscapers will be deflowered, bulldozer operators will be
degraded, organ donors will be delivered, the BVD company will be
debriefed, and even musical composers will eventually decompose.
As a student, I spent all my time wishing to be detested and degraded.
On a more positive note though, perhaps we can hope politicians will

of the gnus. Here again are the head lions."

offer him a solution. He heard of a very good one in Sweden,
and went to him. The new surgeon examined him, thought a
while, and said, "yes, I can put you right." After the operation,
bandages off, stitches out, he goes to his hotel. The morning

A young man at his first job as a waiter in a diner has a large
trucker sit down at the counter and order, "Gimme 3 flat tires
and a couple of headlights". Bewildered he goes to the kitchen
and tells the cook, "I think this guy's in the wrong store, look
at what he ordered!". The cook says, "He wants 3 pancakes
& 2 eggs sunny-side up". The waiter takes a bowl of beans
to the trucker. He looks at it and growls, "What's this? I didn't
order this!". The young man tells him, "The cook says that

Two nuns, who worked in a hospital, were out driving in the
country when they ran out of gas. As they were standing
beside their car on the shoulder of the road, a truck
approached them. Noticing the nuns in distress, the trucker
stopped and offered to help. When the nuns explained they
had run out of gas, the trucker said he would be more than
happy to drain some from his tank, but he didn't have a bucket
or a can. Hearing this, one of the nuns dug out a clean bedpan
from the trunk and asked the trucker if it would do. He said it
would and proceeded to drain a couple of quarts into the pan.
He then handed the pan to the sisters, got back into his truck
and waved goodbye. While the nuns were carefully pouring the
precious fuel into their gas tank, a cop happened by. He stopped
and watched them for a few moments, then said, "Sisters,
somehow I don't think that's going to work, but I sure do admire your faith!"

ceremonial pipe, eyeing the two US government officials sent
to interview him. "Chief Two Eagles," one official began, "you
have observed the white man for many generations, you have
seen his wars and his products, you have seen all his progress,
and all his problems." The chief nodded. The official continued,
"Considering recent events, in Your opinion, where has the white
man gone wrong?" The chief stared at the government officials
for over a minute, and then calmly replied. "When white man
found the land, Indians were running it.
* No taxes.
* No debt.
* Plenty buffalo
* Plenty beaver
* Women did the work
* Medicine man free
* Indian men hunted and fished all the time."
The chief smiled, and added quietly, "White man dumb enough to
think he could improve system like that."

A Chicago man dies and goes to hell. When he gets there,
the devil comes over to welcome him. The devil then says
"sometimes it gets pretty uncomfortable down here." The
man says, "No problem. I'm from Chicago." So the devil
goes over to the thermostat, turns the temperature up to
100, and the humidity up to 80. He then goes back to the
Chicago man to see how he's doing. To the devil's surprise,
the man is doing just fine. "No problem...just like Chicago in
June," the man says. So the devil goes back over to the
thermostat, and turns the temperature up to 150, and the
humidity up to 90. He then goes back over to see how the
Chicago man is doing. The man is sweating a little, but
overall looks comfortable. "No problem. Just like Chicago
in July," the man says. So now the devil goes over to the
thermostat, turns the temperature up to 200, and the
humidity up to 100. When he goes back to see how the
man is doing, the man is sweating profusely, and has
taken his shirt off. Otherwise, he seems OK. He says,
"no problem. Just like Chicago in August." Now the devil
is really perplexed. So he goes back to the thermostat, and
turns the temperature down to MINUS 150 DEGREES.
Immediately, all the humidity in the air freezes up, and the
whole place (meaning Hell) becomes a frigid, barren, frozen,
deathly cold wasteland. When he goes back now to see how
the Chicago man is doing, he is shocked to discover the man
is jumping up and down, and cheering in obvious delight. The
devil immediately asks the man what's going on. To which
the Chicago man replies..... "THE CUBS WON THE WORLD
SERIES!!!" "THE CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!"

barkeep. "That's right. My last four scores were seven years ago."
A Texan lands in Sydney, and is picked up by a taxi. After
requesting a tour of the city, he starts into a tirade about the
small town airport and how in Texas they have larger runways
on their ranches. They are soon crossing the Sydney Harbor

Where to Place Prospective Employees Take the prospective
employees you are trying to place and put them in a room with only
a table and two chairs. Leave them alone for two hours, without any
instruction. At the end of that time, go back and see what they are
doing. If they have taken the table apart, put them in Engineering.
If they are counting the butts in the ashtray, assign them to Finance.
If they are waving their arms and talking out loud, send them to
Consulting. If they are talking to the chairs, Personnel is a good
spot for them. If they are wearing green sunglasses and need a
haircut, Computer Information Systems is their niche.

said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a
human because even though it was a very large mammal
its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was
swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a

It was a hot summer's day, and Luke was in the marina, having a
few beers aboard his boat, patriotically named the "Fourth of July."
He was waiting for his friend, Opie, to arrive so they could go for a
cruise. Opie was late, unfortunately, because he had to pick up
his wife from her appointment with the obstetrician. Her examinations
were cheap because the doctor, a fellow named Juan, was Opie's
cousin. Anyway, the appointment went overtime, and Opie was
late getting to the marina. Luke had been drinking all this time,
and was feeling no pain. When he saw Opie finally walking down
the pier, he jumped up, staggered to the side of the boat to wave
to his friend, and nearly fell in! Opie got there just in time to grab
Luke. Thus, it was that O. B. Juan's kin, Opie, saved Luke from
falling to the dock side of the Fourth.
