The Louisiana State Police received reports of illegal cockfights
 being held in Sunset and sent Detective Boudreaux to investigate.
Boudreaux reported to his sergeant the next morning,
 "Dey is tree main groups in dis here rooster fightin’."
"Good work, Detective. Who are they?" he asked.
Boudreaux replied confidently, "De Texas Aggies, de Cajuns, and de Mafia."
Puzzled, the sergeant asked, "How did you find that out in one night?"
Well I went down and done seen dat dere rooster fight in person.

The sergeant nodded, I'll buy that. But what about the others?"
"Well, I knowed de Cajuns was involved when sunnbody bet on dat dere duck."
"Ah" sighed the sergeant. ‘And how did you figure the Mafia was involved?"
"De duck won."

Bert always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots, so, seeing
Some on sale, he bought them and wore them home.
Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and said to his wife,
"Notice anything different about me?"
Margaret looked him over.. "Nope."
Frustrated, Bert stormed off into the bathroom, undressed and walked back into
The kitchen completely naked except for the boots.
Again he asked Margaret, a little louder this time, "Notice anything
Different NOW?"
Margaret looked up and said in her best deadpan, "Bert, what's different?
It's hanging down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it'll be hanging down
Again tomorrow."
"Nope. Not a clue", she replied.
Without missing a beat Margaret replied, "Shoulda bought a hat, Bert.

On a deserted island


Two sea monsters were swimming around in the ocean,
looking for something to do.
They came up underneath a ship that was hauling potatoes.
 Bob, the first sea monster,
swam underneath the ship, tipped it over and ate everything on the ship.
A little while later, they came up to another ship, again hauling potatoes.
 Bob again capsizes the ship and eats everything onboard.
The third ship they found was also hauling potatoes.
 Bob once again capsized it and ate everything.
Finally his buddy Bill asked him,
"Why do you keep tipping over those ships full of potatoes and eating everything on board?"
Bob replied, "I wish I hadn't, but I just can't help myself once I start.
 Everyone knows you can't eat just one potato ship."

Once In A Lifetime Weather of the Day:
 but the joy of experiencing the first Wellington snowfall
 in over 30 years more than makes up for any minor inconvenience.

 Mae West once said she likes two kinds of men - foreign and domestic.
 Well, I like two kinds of wine - red and white.
 Forgive me for I have zinned.
 I like to cook with wine. Sometimes I even put in the food.
 Wine drinkers make grape lovers.
 Wine is like opera. You can enjoy it even if you do not understand it.
 Doormat: “We only serve the finest vintage wines. Did you bring any?”
 In NYC, they hail taxis. In Napa, they hail cabs.
 How Merlot can you go?
 Don’t drink and drive - you may spill your wine.
 Money may not buy happiness but it will buy wine.
 A cork retriever is not a dog from Ireland
 I like long legs and not just on a wine glass.
 Wine improves with age. The older I get, the more I like it.
 What did the grape say when he was squeezed? Nothing. He just wined.
 Men are like a fine wine. They start out as grapes. It's our job to stomp them,
and then keep them in the dark until they mature.
 And hopefully they'll turn out to be something we would like to have dinner with.

A slice of pizza is in the stomach, waiting to be digested.
Suddenly, a shot of whiskey barrels down.
 The pizza lets it pass in front of him.
A few minutes later, another shot of whiskey comes through.
Courteously, the pizza lets it pass in front of him, too.
A few minutes later, a third shot of whiskey tumbles into the stomach.
 The pizza asks they whiskey,
 “What’s going on up there?”
”They’re having a really great party”, says the whiskey.
”Really? responds the pizza.
 “I think I’ll go up there and take a look”.
