My wife was having a rough morning. She began recalling all her regrets in life.  I suggested to her that she try embracing   her mistakes.  She gave me a hug.

What did the chemist say to her valentine?
I think of you periodically.

What did the painter say to his valentine?
I love you with all of my art.

What did the chef give to his valentine?
A hug and a quiche.

And all I got for y'all are some corny valentine jokes!  Happy Valentine's Day!

The Buddhist approached the hotdog vender and asked, “Make me one, with everything.”

When he received lunch, he handed the vender a $20 bill and waited, and waited, and waited, until he had run out of patience.

“What about my change?” the Buddhist said.

The hotdog vender smiled: “Change comes from within.”

(Slight) improvement on one of Jay Angler's from p. 87:

Q: What is the best time to go to the dentist?
A: Before tooth-hurty.

This joke was actually tacked to the wall at my old dentist's office =]

It's really hard to beat Biff's line from "Back to the Future": "...Make like a tree and get outta here!"

I've sometimes coined rhyming salutations like "I'm outta here like last year"

Improvising right now...how about "make like superman and escape"

"Make like a rug and beat it"

"Make like green lumber and split"

Sister Mary, who worked for a home health agency, was making her rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. A filling station was only a block away, but the attendant said they had no gas can for her to borrow.

Sister Mary returned to her car to see if there was a gas can in the trunk. There wasn’t, but she found a bedpan. Being resourceful she took it to the station and asked the attendant to fill ‘er up.

As she was pouring the gas into her tank two men watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, “If it starts, I’m turning Catholic!”

Why do trees make the worst frenemies? Because they are always throwing shade!

What did the young plant say to the compost? "You decompose me."

Why are worms the best at composting? Because they always get into the dirt of things!

What do you call a well-spoken vegetable? An arti-chic!

Why did the gardener plant a seed in the pond? He wanted to grow a water-melon!

What did the bee say to the flower? "Hey bud, when do you open?"

Why don't secrets work in a garden? Because the potatoes have eyes, the corn has ears, and the beans stalk.

What's a gardener's favorite novel? "War and Peas."

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest...

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

"Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead," replied the vet.

"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room.  He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room.

A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$250?" she cried, "$250 just to tell me my duck is dead?"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but......with the Lab Report and the Cat scan, it's now $250."

What did the sun bring to the solar eclipse party?                             (A light snack!)


What did the sun say when it reappeared after an eclipse?              (Pleased to heat you again!)


Why didn't the sun go to college?                                                         (It already had a million degrees!)
