The Bible had been in his family for generations. As was the tradition established centuries ago the man had written his name inside the cover and carried it with it at all times. One day, it was gone. The man looked everywhere. Months later, when the man was walking his fences, a deer calmly walked up to the the man dropped the Bible from his mouth.  The man dropped to his knees, hands high in the air, and cried out, "It's a miracle!"  "Not really", said the deer, "Your name was written inside the cover."

An old man is selling watermelons.  His pricelist reads: 1 for $3, 3 for $10

A young man stops by and asks to buy one watermelon. "That'd be 3 dollars", says the old man.

The young man then buys another one, and another one, paying $3 for each.

As the young man is walking away, he turns around, grins, and says, "Hey old man, do you realize I just bought three watermelons for only $9? Maybe business is not your thing."

The old man smiles and mumbles to himself, "People are funny. Every time they buy three watermelons instead of one, yet they keep trying to teach me how to do business..."

I was repairing the roof on my barn yesterday when a board fell and broke my finger. On the other hand, I'm OK.

Two older ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.  One leaned over and said, "Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $5.00 I'd take my clothes off right now and streak through that stupid flower show!"   "You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $5.00 bill.  
As fast as she could, the first little old lady fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely naked, streaked through the front door of the flower show.  Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause. The naked lady burst out through the door surrounded by a cheering crowd. "What happened?"  asked her waiting friend. "Why, I won first prize for Best Dried Arrangement!"

Why didn't anyone laugh at the gardener's jokes?
Because they were too corny.

A magical tractor was driving down the road and it turned into a field.  

Farmers are real experts, they are often outstanding in their fields.  


After reading the menu, a restaurant customer ordered a bowl of vegetable soup.  After a couple of spoonfuls, he saw a circle of wetness right under the bowl on the tablecloth.  He called the waitress over and said, "It's all wet down here. The bowl must be cracked."  The waitress said, "You ordered vegetable soup, maybe it has a leek in it."

A nun is walking past a bar when a drunk man stumbles over to her. He stares at her all bleary-eyed for a moment and before she can speak, he hauls back and punches her in the face, knocking her flat on the ground. She's laying there bewildered, trying to think of a blessing for this clearly troubled soul and starts to get up. But as she does, he jumps up and elbows her in the back. As she's laying there trying to catch her breath, he gets right up in her face and says, "You're not so tough, are you, Batman!?"

I just learned a neat trick.  First write your age on a piece of paper.   Now, add 7 to it.  That will be your age in 7 years!

Three young boys are walking through the forest when a witch abducts them. The takes them to her hut where she locks them in a cage.  As she begins to get her cauldron boiling she adds various ingredients  and finally grabs the smallest  boy and throws him in.  There is a terrible explosion, smoke, and flames.  The boy leaps out of the cauldron,  now much taller and muscular, and kills the witch.  As he frees the other  boys, they as what happened. "Oh, that's easy", he said, "that witch doesn't  kill you, only makes you stronger."
