So one of FOCM’s members texts me random humorous items. I share some of them with you today:
What did the ocean say to the sailboat?
Nothing. It just waved.
What did General Custer say at Little Big Horn when he saw the Indians coming?
“Here come the Indians.”
What do you call two Mexicans playing basketball against each other?
Juan on Juan
The United Way realized that it had never received a donation from the city’s most successful lawyer. So a United Way worker paid the lawyer a visit in his lavish office.
The United Way guy opened the meeting by saying, “our research shows that even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you don’t give a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give something back to your community through the United Way?”
The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, “First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?”
Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, “uh…no, I didn’t know that.”
“Secondly,” says the laywer, “did it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?”
The stricken United Way rep begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again.
“Thirdly, did you research also show you that my sister’s husband died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?”
The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten says, “I’m so sorry, I had no idea.”
And the lawyer says, “So, if I didn’t give any money to them, what makes you think I’d give any to you?”
