Good morning crew,

When I got home from the health club the other night the wife asked me how my workout was.

"Good," I told her. I did a couple sets of this and a couple sets of that. A few pushups. A few situps. "And then I did 150 calories on the rowing machine." I concluded.

"150 calories?" she asked. "Don't you mean 150 meters or something?"

"No, you can set the display to measure calories burned. I figure 150 calories will pay for the beers I'm about to drink tonight."

She shook her head at me with a little smile.

"What?"

She said, "You're the only person I know who measures his workouts in alcohol."

Laugh it up,

Joe

Before going on vacation, I went to a tanning salon. I was under the lights a bit long and the protective shades I wore left a big white circle around each eye. Gazing at myself in the mirror the next day, I thought, "Man, I look like a clown."

I had almost convinced myself that I was overreacting until I got in line at the grocery store. I felt a tug at my shirt and looked down to see a toddler staring up at me. He asked, "Are you giving out balloons?"




*-------------- Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes --------------*

I was at a stop light, behind a car with a bumper sticker that said "Honk if you love Jesus."

So I honked. The driver leaned out his window, gave me an very impolite gesture, and yelled, "Can't you see the light is still red, you MORON!?"
