Do you read and believe everything you see in the paper? Everyday its something new or different we shouldnt do, eat drink or breathe. Heres some:
1. Dont eat eggs, apples, carrots, rice, oats, barley, plums, cherries, garlic, wheat bran, wheat germ, soybean oil, green vegetables for all the same reason.
2. Dont breath, you will inhale carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen and sulphur.
3. Obviously dont drive or ride in an automobile, in the U.S. 50,000 persons a year are killed by autos.
4. Dont eat salt, you may have to drink too much water.
5. Dont farm. It is one of the three most dangerous occupations.
6. Dont turn on the TV, those rays may cause cancer.
7. Dont switch on a microwave oven, for the same reason.
8. Finally! Dont read this, you might have a nervous breakdown.

A job-seeker walked in the house and announced Honey, I got a job! Great, she said, Whats the pay? Oh, they said theyll pay me what Im worth! What? his wife sputtered. We cant live on that!

A farmer was milking when he saw a fly disappear into the cows ear. After milking a while longer, he noticed a fly in the milk bucket. Thats really something, he said. A fly goes in one ear and out the udder.

Ole says that Lenas mother is so fat, that she needs Group Insurance.

. . . . .
Never pick a quarrel,
even when its ripe.

. . . . .
When at night one cannot sleep,
a common cure is counting sheep,
but what do you do
if youre so tense,
you cant can make the
darn sheep jump the fence.

. . . . .
A man of words and not of deeds,
is like a garden full of weeds.

. . . . .
The most important thing
about your lot in life,
is whether you use it
for building or parking.

Holy Bloopers
1. Tuesday at 4pm there will be an ice cream social, all ladies giving milk come early.
2. This afternoon there will be a meeting in the south and north ends of the church. Children will be baptized on both ends.
3. The service will close with Little Drops of Water. One of the ladies will start quietly and the rest of the congregation will join in.

Thoughts on a rainy Monday
The day you get a manicure, the kettle must be scoured.
The weekend you have special guests, the breakfast cream has soured.
While you were on vacation, the six-year Lily flowered.
It was your brand-new sandal, the neighbors pup devoured.
For Sunday-evening waffles, the irons sure to stick.
Some husbands help by saying, the batter seems too thick.
The morning after grandma leaves, the babys tooth comes through.
Youve no complaint, you merely state, the facts are tried and true.
Though fortune smiles on all the world, it seems she laughs at you.
