MOUTHPIECE - December 6, 2016
I may not be much of a conversationalist, but I do know how to tell a joke or two. So, here's a joke...or two...nah, just one joke today.
The lifeguard told the mother to make her young son stop urinating in the pool.
"Everyone knows," the mother lectured him, "that from time to time, young children will urinate in a pool."
"Well, that's true," said the lifeguard, "but from the diving board!?!?"
Good joke, eh? Now enjoy Mouthpiece and all of its enjoyableness and stuff. You see, I stink at conversing.
