Politics

A lawyer phoned the premier’s mansion shortly after midnight. "I need to talk to the premier . It's an emergency!" exclaimed the lawyer.

After some cajoling, the premier’s  assistant agreed to wake him up. "So, what is it that's so important that it can't wait until morning?" grumbled the premier.

"Judge Jones just died, and I want to take his place," begged the attorney.

"Well, it's okay with me if it's okay with the funeral home," replied the premier.

Kids talk about astronomy:

When people run around and around in circles we say they are crazy.  When planets do it we say they are orbiting.

Most books now say our sun is a star.  But it still knows how to change back into a sun in the daytime.

Kids talk about Meteorology:

You can listen to thunder after lightening and tell how close you came to getting hit. If you don't hear it you got hit, so never mind.

I am not sure how clouds get formed.  But the clouds know how to do it, and that is the important thing.

It is so hot in some parts of the world that the people there have to live other places.

No Place Like Home

While I was dining out with my children, a man came over to our table, and we started talking.

He asked where my kids go to school. I told him we home-schooled them.

With a raised eyebrow, he asked if my husband is the sole breadwinner for our family.

I said, "No, I also work . . out of our home."

Then, noticing our two-month-old son, he mentioned that his daughter had just had a baby, and he wondered what hospital our son was born in.

"He was born at home," I answered.

The man looked at me, then said, "Wow, you don't get out much, do you?"
