Did you hear the one about the pregnant woman who went into labor and started shouting, “Couldn’t! Wouldn’t! Shouldn’t! Didn’t! Can’t!”? She was having contractions!

When I was a kid, my teacher looked my way and said, “Name two pronouns.” I said, “Who, me?”

What’s the difference between a cat and a comma?
One has claws at the end of its paws, and the other is pause at the end of a clause.

Never leave alphabet soup on the stove and then go out. It could spell disaster.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary editor, it took nine months of work to record all possibilities (a “run” of a pregnancy!).

So how long of a list can you run off?

Here are some colorful sayings I heard recently

I love baseball and this is what a commentator said of a player:

“He had all the energy of youth but was as dumb as a box of rocks.”

 

A radio commentator said this on a hot day:

“It’s another put your bra in the freezer Friday.”
