Good morning crew,

I tried to find some good Columbus Day jokes for you but there aren't any. Good ones, I mean. I found plenty of crappy ones. For example:

Q. Where did Columbus first land in America? A. On his feet!

And they go downhill from there.

Laugh it up,

Joe

The young mother replied honestly, "The luggage, no; the children, yes."
