Some people, you just can't fool.

It's the day before Thanksgiving, and the butcher is just locking up when a man begins pounding on the front door.

"Please let me in," says the man desperately. "I forgot to buy a turkey, and my wife is going to kill me if I don't come home with one."

"Okay," says the butcher. "Let me see what I have left."

He goes into the freezer and discovers that there's only one scrawny turkey left. He brings it out to show the man.

"That's one is too skinny. What else you got?" says the man.

The butcher takes the bird back into the freezer and waits a few minutes and brings the same turkey back out to the man.

"Oh, no," says the man, "That one doesn't look any better. You better give me both of them!"

- Thanks, Professor.

And here's a link to
another of the Professor's posts
that made me laugh out loud.
He and I seem to get the
same e-mail.

Hey! You have quite a tie collection!

That was a really fowl ploy.

(hey, it was just a matter of time...)

Dan: I've got a closet just for ties. Want any?

Joe: LOL I laughed at your response more than I did at the original joke. Time's relative.

It was a bit poultry but I love your ties :P

Paul I agree with Dan about the ties. Very cool.
Loved the turkey thing.
Love you!
How is the snow treating you?
We were slammed today!
Weird though, it was pretty mild out considering. Strange cosmic thing perhaps.
