I don't usually do this, #271.

Maybe it's because I was in desperate need of a laugh, but this little joke appeared in my email today, and I found it rather amusing...


Dave was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them."

Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Dave, how about Tom Cruise?"

"No drama, boss, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it."

So Dave and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door and Tom Cruise shouts, "Dave! What's happenin?? Great to see you!

Although impressed, Dave's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Dave that he thinks him knowing Cruise was just lucky. "No, no, just name anyone else," Dave says.

"President Bush," his boss quickly retorts. "Yup," Dave says, "Old buddies, lets fly out to Washington." And off they go.

At the White House, Bush spots Dave on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Dave, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee and catch up."

Well, the boss is very shaken by now but still not totally convinced.

After they leave the White House grounds he expresses his doubts to Dave, who again implores him to name anyone else.

"The Pope," his boss replies. "Sure!" says Dave. "My folks are from Germany, and I've known the Pope a long time." So off they fly to Rome.

Dave and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Dave says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican.

Sure enough, half an hour later Dave emerges with he Pope on the balcony, but by the time Dave returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack, and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to his boss' side Dave asks him, "What happened?"

His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said, "Who's that on the balcony with Dave?"

Yo ho ho. Hee hee. Ha ha. That was a good one, but too domestic for my tastes. When I'm in a bad mood I need something more rip-roaring to snap me out of it.

I'll offer you a sample funny, taken from real life. I was walking by my nurse while she knelt on the floor to pick papers off the floor.

She said, "You better not step on me, or you're dead meat."

I responded, "Don't worry, I never step on roadkill.

Gotta admit, Doctor Rick, that I dig your sense of humor.

I also have to admit that the gags that really knock me out are totally unsuitable for posting here....
