"Right lad," said the sergeant in the recruiting office,
"what's your name?"
"McCoy, sergeant."
"And what was your civvy job?"
"I was a cork socker, sergeant."
"A cork socker? What's that?"
"Well, I worked in a winery, see, and my job was to put the pretty paper
over the corks in the wine bottles. A cork socker, they called me."
"Okay," said the sergeant, "through that door there and see the medical officer.
The next bloke fronted up
."Name?" asked the sergeant.
"McCoy, sergeant."
"Another McCoy! And what was your civvy job?"
"I was a coke soaker, sergeant."
"A coke soaker? What's that?"
"Well I worked in the foundry, see, and it was my job to keep the coke damp
so it burned hotter. A coke soaker they called me."
"Okay," said the sergeant, "through that door there and see the medical officer.
The next bloke fronted up.
"Name?" asked the sergeant.
"McCoy, sergeant."
"Not another McCoy! And what was your civvy job?"
"I was a sock tucker, sergeant."
"A sock tucker? What's that?"
"Well, I worked in a sock factory, and when the socks came off the production line
I had to fold them neatly and tuck them together.
A sock tucker, they called me."
"Okay," said the sergeant, "through that door there and see the medical officer.
The next bloke fronted up
."Name?" asked the sergeant.
"McCoy, sergeant."
"Not another one!" the sergeant groaned.
"And what the hell are you lad? A coke soaker, a cork socker or a sock tucker?
""None of those sweetie," lisped the bloke.
"I'm the real McCoy!"

Once there were these two birds who,
every year for quite a few years, had one egg,
which they hatched and nurtured
and loved until the little chick was ready to leave the nest.
Then, one year, they had two eggs!
Well, they were just so excited they could hardly stand it;
this year they would each have an egg to take care of and love.
They kept close watch on those two eggs so that no harm came to them.
Then one day when the eggs were ready to hatch,
an earthquake shook the tree where the nest was;
the two birds flew away to safety,
all the while worrying about those two eggs that were about to hatch.
When the tremor was finished, they hurried back to the nest.
As they neared it, they heard one strong "Cheep" coming from the nest.
They were worried that something might have happened to the other egg,
but when they got to the nest,
they found that there were TWO chicks cheeping in unison.
This just goes to show that two can cheep as lively as one.

The history class was studying the Revolutionary battle of Saratoga
which was probably lost because General William Howe
chose to remain in Philadelphia.
The teacher then asked the class to explain this major British defeat.
"Lack of no Howe,"
answered a voice from the back of the classroom.

One early morning, a farmer was milking his cow.
The farmer was just starting to get a good rhythm going
when a bug flew into the barn and started circling his head.
Suddenly, the bug flew into the cow's ear.
The farmer didn't think much about it,
until the bug squirted out into his bucket
. It went in one ear and out the udder!

They hadn't seen their Uncle Max for over ten years
but every year his nieces sent him birthday greetings.
One year, they remembered how he had always
admired a set of military hairbrushes,
so they sent them to him as a gift.
A few weeks later they received a snapshot of their completely bald uncle
with a note that read:
"Thanks for the gift
. I will never part with it."

Clever and Funny


Robinson Crusoe fell desperately ill.
Just before dropping into a coma,
he called for his man Friday to help him.
Friday, not knowing what else to do,
went outside of Crusoe's tent and danced around and prayed
for God to come and help his master.
Shortly afterwards, Crusoe awoke from his coma
and groggily perceived a shape at the foot of his bed.
In panic, he imagined that the angel of death had come to get him.
Then his the shape came into focus,
and he cried with relief,
"Thank God! It's Friday!"
