Have some fun and enjoy your day

Joke number 1

” When Harry was a young boy in Louisiana, he was always getting into trouble. One morning while waiting for the school bus, he pushed the outhouse into the bayou and went off for school as if nothing had happened. When he returned, his father was waiting for him. He said, “Son, did you push the outhouse into the bayou?” “Yes, father,” said Harry, “like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie.” Harry’s father took off his belt and said, “All right, son, bend over. I’m going to have to whip you.” Harry tried to explain that Mr. Washington didn’t spank George when he admitted chopping down the cherry tree. “Yes, son,” said Harry’s father, “but George’s father wasn’t in the tree.”

Joke number 2

“While delivering a campaign speech one day Theodore Roosevelt was interrupted by a heckler: “I’m a Democrat!” the man shouted.
” May I ask the gentleman,” Roosevelt replied, quieting the crowd, “why he is a Democrat?”
” My grandfather was a Democrat, my father was a Democrat and I am a Democrat.”
” My friend,” Roosevelt interjected, moving in for the kill, “suppose your grandfather had been a jackass and your father was a jackass. What would you then be?”
Alas, Roosevelt was thwarted by the quick-witted heckler, who promptly replied: “A Republican!”

Joke number 3

“President Theodore Roosevelt’s enthusiasm for exercise posed a continual challenge to Washington’s diplomatic corps. On one White House visit, Jusserand was invited – after two sets of tennis – to go jogging. A workout with the medicine ball followed. Then, his guest’s enthusiasm apparently flagging, Roosevelt asked, “What would you like to do now?”
” If it’s all the same to you,” the exhausted Frenchman sighed, “lie down and die”

Hi Martyna
Easter jokes – great idea.

Ronald Reagan was a master of telling funny stories during his speeches.
Guess he didn’t have to write his own material.

Happy Easter
