You Know You live in a Small Town When

You can name everyone you graduated with.

You ever went to parties at a pasture, barn, or in the middle of a dirt
road.

You used to drag “main”.

You said a cuss word and your parents knew within the hour.

You ever went cow-tipping or snipe hunting.

School gets canceled for state events.

It was cool to date someone from the neighboring town.

The whole school went to the same party after graduation.

You think kids that ride skateboards are weird.

The town next to you is considered “trashy” or “snooty,” but is actually
just like your town.

Getting paid minimum wage is considered a raise.

You refer to anyone with a house newer than 1980 as the “rich people.”

The people in the city dress funny, then you pick-up on the trend two
years later.

Anyone you want can be found at either the Dairy Queen or the feed
store.

You see at least one friend a week driving a tractor through town.

Directions are given using “the” stop light as a reference.

You have ever taken a trailer or dog to school on a daily basis.

You know what 4-H is.

You decide to walk somewhere for exercise and 5 people pull over and ask
if you need a ride.

You can charge at all the local stores.

The closest McDonald’s is 45 miles away. So is the closest mall.

You Know You’re Getting Old When You can Remember

Being sent to the drugstore to test vacuum tubes for the TV.
*

When Kool-Aid was the only other drink for kids, other than milk and sodas.
*

When there were two types of sneakers for boys.
*

When boys couldn’t wear anything but leather shoes to school.

When it took five minutes for the TV to warm up.
*

When all your friends got their hair cut at the kitchen table.
*

When nearly everyone’s mom was at home when the kids got there.
*

When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.
*

When a dime was a decent allowance, and a quarter a huge bonus.
*

When you’d reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.
*

When girls neither dated nor kissed until late high school, if then.
*

When your mom wore nylons that came in two pieces.
*

When all your teachers wore either neckties or had their hair done, everyday.
*

When you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped,
without asking, for free, every time. And you got trading stamps to boot!
*

When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the
box.
*

When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him, or use him to carry
groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.
*

When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a
real restaurant with your parents.
*

When they threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed–and did!
*

When being sent to the principal’s office was nothing compared to the fate
that awaited a misbehaving student at home.
*

When women were called, “Mrs. John Smith,” instead of their own name.

Some Great Useless One Liners

Some Great But Useless One-Liners

It is hard to understand how a cemetery raised its burial cost
and blamed it on the cost of living.

Just remember…if the world didn’t suck, we’d all fall off.

We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.

The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting
something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end,
someone would be stupid enough to try and pass them.

Laughing stock – cattle with a sense of humor.

You can’t have everything, where would you put it?

Latest survey shows that 3 out of 4 people make up 75% of the
world’s population.

If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

Eat right. Stay fit. Die anyway.

The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by
those who got there first.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat drinking beer all day.

Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.

As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools.

A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

The only cure for insomnia is to get more sleep.

Everybody lies, but it doesn’t matter since nobody listens.

I wished the buck stopped here, as I could use a few.

When you go into court you are putting yourself in the hands of
12 people that weren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Speaking English

Here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the
truth after all those conflicting medical studies.

The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the
British or Americans.

The French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks
than the British or Americans.

The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart
attacks than the British or Americans.

The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer
fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

CONCLUSION:
Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what
kills you.

Doctor! Doctor!

Doctor, doctor, my wooden leg is giving me a lot of pain.
Why’s that?
My wife keeps hitting me over the head with it.

Doctor, doctor, my hair’s coming out. Can you give me something to
keep it in?
Certainly – how about a paper bag?
*
Doctor, doctor, people keep ignoring me.
Next, please!

Doctor, doctor, I feel like a pair of curtains.
Pull yourself together!

Doctor, doctor, I feel like a bridge.
What’s come over you?
Two cars and a bus!

Doctor, doctor, I keep thinking I’m a spoon.
Sit there and don’t stir.

Doctor, doctor, I keep thinking I’m a billiard ball.
Get back in the queue.

Doctor, doctor, I keep thinking I’m a pack of cards.
I’ll deal with you later.

Doctor, doctor, I keep thinking there’s two of me.
One at a time, please.

Doctor, doctor, I keep thinking I’m a dog.
Lie down on the couch and I’ll examine you.
I can’t. I’m not allowed on the furniture.

Doctors and Guns

Think about this:

a. The number of physicians in the US is 700,000.
b. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000.
c. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. (US Dept. of Health
Human Services)

Photography Prints

Then think about this:

a. The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000.
b. The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
c. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .0000188.

Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than
gun owners.
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT
LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before
this gets out of hand.

As a public health measure I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear
that the shock could cause people to seek medical attention.

The Best Patients

Five surgeons are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon says, “I like to see accountants on my operating table,
because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”

The second responds, “Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything
inside them is color coded.”

The third surgeon says, “No, I really think librarians are the best;
everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth surgeon chimes in: “You know, I like construction workers
…those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over
at the end, and when the job takes longer than you said it would.”

But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed: “You’re all
wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There’s no guts, no
heart, and no spine, and the head and butt are interchangeable.”

The Blonde Grandma

Old Granny went to her doctor to see what could be  done about her constipation.

“It’s terrible,” she said, “I haven’t moved my bowels in a week.”

“I see. Have you done anything about it?” asked the doctor.

“Naturally,” she replied, “I sit in the bathroom for a half-hour in the morning and again at night.”

“No,” the doctor said, “I mean do you take anything?”

“Naturally,” she answered, “I take a book.”

modern walk

A Modern day walkabout

Still Crazy

Jim and Mary were both patients in a Mental Hospital.
One day while they were walking past the hospital
swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end.
He sunk to the bottom and stayed there. Mary promptly
jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled
Jim out.

When the medical director became aware of Mary’s heroic
act, he immediately ordered her to be discharged from the
hospital, as he now considered her to be mentally stable.

When he went to tell Mary the news, he said, “Mary, I have
good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being
discharged because – since you were able to jump in and
save the life of another patient, I think you’ve regained your
senses. The bad news is Jim, the patient you saved, hung
himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom. I am so sorry,
but he’s dead.”

Mary replied, “He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry”
