Where’s the Road?
A friend and I were driving in the country looking for an address. We found the town, but we couldn’t locate the road.
We drove to the police station, but they’d never heard of the road. Neither had the Fire Department. We went to City Hall, where a community get together was going on. We consulted a map, with no luck, until we happened to ask one young man who knew exactly where the road was. He pointed to the map, showing us exactly how to get there.
I said, “Thank you! Are you with the police or the Fire Department?”
“Neither. I deliver pizzas.”
A farmer discovers that some local kids have been helping themselves to his watermelons. To discourage the profit-eating behavior, he put up a sign that read:
WARNING: ONE OF THESE WATERMELONS CONTAINS CYANIDE!
A week later, the farmer goes out into his field. None of his watermelons had been eaten, but he found another sign that said:
NOW THERE ARE TWO!
“Rain or Shine”
It was raining quite hard as U.S. Marine trainees assembled outdoors for a briefing. On a blackboard, the lieutenant instructor had prepared a detailed drawing of the tactics he wanted practiced.
“Don’t think we’re going to call this off just because of a little rain,” he said.
Then he turned to the blackboard which had been washed clean.
