    A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sit down and engage in an
    animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at
    first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of
    the men say the following:

    "Emma come first. Den I come. Den two as ses come together. I come
    once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pe e
    twice. Then I come one lasta time."

    "You foul mouthed swine," retorted the lady indignantly. "In this
    country we don't talk about our se x lives in public!"

    "Hey, coola down lady," said the man. "Who talkin' abouta se xa? I'm
    just tellin' my frienda how to spella 'Mississippi'."

    Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, are growing in the woods. A small
    tree begins to grow between them. The beech says to the birch:

    "Is that a son of a beech or a son of a birch?"

    The birch says he cannot tell.

    Just then a woodpecker lands on the sapling. The birch says,

    "Woodpecker, you are a tree expert. Can you tell if that is a son of a beech
    or a son of a birch?"

    The woodpecker takes a taste of the small tree and replies:

    "It is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch. It is, however, the best
    piece of ash I have ever put my pecker in!".

    Hey dazzle
    Yeah, they are giving me a bad time lately. I'm glad you got to see it before it went down. Are you hunkering down for that storm ? You be safe up there. I'll be thinking about all of you up there.

    man is in bed with his wife when there is a rat-a-tat-tat on the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it's half past three in the morning. "I'm not getting out of bed at this time," he thinks, and rolls over.

    Then, a louder knock follows. "Aren't you going to answer that?" says his wife.

    So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs. He opens the door and there is man standing at the door. It didn't take the homeowner long to realize the man was drunk.

    "Hi there," slurs the stranger. "Can you give me a push?"

    "No, get lost. It's half past three. I was in bed," says the man and he slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened.

    "Dave, that wasn't very nice of you," she says.

    "Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick the kids up from the babysitter, and you had to knock on that man's house to get us started again? What would have happened if he'd told us to get lost?"

    "But the guy was drunk," says the husband.

    "It doesn't matter," says the wife. "He needs our help and it would be the Christian thing to help him." So the husband gets out of bed again, gets dressed, and goes downstairs. He opens the door, and not being able to see the stranger anywhere, he shouts, "Hey, do you still want a push?" And he hears a voice cry out, "Yeah, please." So, still being unable to see the stranger, he shouts,

    "Where are you?"

    "I'm over here," the stranger replies, "on your swing."
