Tongue Tied

A man walks into Moshe’s shoe shop and tries on a pair of shoes.

“How do they feel?” asks Moshe.

“Well the left one feels a bit tight,” replies the man.

Moshe looks down at the shoe on the man’s left foot and says, “Try it again, this time with the tongue out.”

“Well, theythsthill feelth a bith tighth.”

Silent Treatment

Bernie and Estelle had a big argument, which ended with neither one speaking to the other. This “silence” went on for three days. But then Bernie realized he needed Estelle’s help because he had anearly morning flight to catch. However, he still couldn’t bring himself to talk to her so he wrote a note and left it on
her pillow.

It said, “Please wake me at 5:00am.
I have to catch an early plane.”

The next morning, Bernie woke and found to his horror that it was 9:00am. He heard Estelle busy in the kitchen and there was a note on his pillow.

It said, “It's 5:00am. Wake up.”

Fishing Trip

Three guys are fishing on a lake when an angel appears in the boat with them. The first guy gets over his shock and humbly says to the angel, “I’ve suffered from back pain for years. Is it too much to ask that you help me?” The angel touches the man’s back, and he feels instant relief. The second guy points to his Coke-bottle glasses and asks if the angel could cure his poor eyesight. The angel tosses the man’s glasses into the lake. When they hit the water, the man’s vision clears, and he can see everything distinctly. The angel now turns to the third guy, who throws his hands out in fear. “Don’t touch me!” he cries. “I’m on disability!”

Evaluation Test

Two paramedics were dispatched to check on 92-year-old Morty Applebaum, who had become disoriented. They decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation.

On the way to the hospital, with the sirens going, they questioned Morty to determine
his level of awareness.

Leaning close, one asked, “Mr. Applebaum, do you know what we're doing right now?”

Morty slowly looked up at him, then gazed out the ambulance window. “Oh,”he replied, “I'd say about 50, maybe 55.”

Smart Dog

A couple of dog owners are arguing about whose pet is smarter. “My dog is so smart,” says the first owner, “that every morning he waits for the paperboy to come around. He tips the kid and then brings the newspaper to me, along with my morning coffee.”
“Iknow,” says the second dog owner.

“How do you know?”

“My dog told me.”

Financial Advice

A teenage girl came running in tears to her father.
“Dad, you gave me some terrible financial advice!”

“I did? What did I tell you?” said the dad.

“You told me to put my money in that big bank,
and now that big bank is in trouble.”

“What are you talking about? That's one of the largest banks in the country,” he said. “There must be
some mistake.”

“I don't think so,” she sniffed. “They just returned one
ofmy checks with a note saying, 'Insufficient Funds'.”
