The Chief of Staff of the Air Force decided that he would personally intervene in a recruiting crisis affecting all of our armed services. So he directed that a nearby Air Force base be opened and that all eligible young men and women be invited. As he and his staff were standing near a brand new F-35 Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked like they had just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting poster walked up.

 

The chief of staff stuck out his hand and introduced himself. He looked at the first young man and asked, "Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force?"

 

The young man looks at him and says, "I'm a pilot!"

 

The general turns to his aide and says, "Sign him up -- all the paper work done, everything, do it today!" The aide hustles the young man off.

 

The general looks at the second young man and asked, "What skills can you bring to the Air Force?"

 

The young man says, "I chop wood!"

 

"Son," the general replies, "we don't need woodchoppers in the Air Force. What else do you know how to do?"

 

"I chop wood!"

 

"Young man," huffs the general, "you are not listening to me. We don't need woodchoppers; this is the 21st century!"

 

"Well," the young man says, "you hired my brother!"

 

"Of course we did," says the general, "But he's a pilot!"

 

The young man rolls his eyes and says, "I HAVE to chop it before he can pile it!"

The little guy smiled at her, "I heard daddy tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again!"

"Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good. Private Peters will be setting the pace on our morning run."

Two hunters were dragging their dead deer down a trail back to their car. Another hunter approached pulling his along too.

 

"Hey, I don't want to tell you what to do, but I can tell you that it's much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won't dig into the ground."

 

After the third hunter left, the two decided to try it.

 

A little while later one hunter said to the other, "You know, that guy was right. This is a lot easier!"

 

"Yeah," the other added, "but we're getting farther away from the truck!"

In a rush to work one morning, a guy pulled up to the drive-through window at a fast-food restaurant and ordered some coffee. Because he was in a hurry, he asked them to put a couple of ice cubes in the coffee so it would cool down more quickly and he could drink it faster.

 

He sat there at the pickup window for a few minutes, wondering where they had to go to get his coffee, when a frustrated teenager finally came up and said, "I'm sorry for the delay, but the ice you wanted in your coffee keeps melting!"

"And?"

 

"At the end of the letter it was written: PS. Dear Diane, when you have finished reading this letter, don't forget to give it to my son."

Underneath it he had written, "ONE MILLION DOLLARS!"

"Good morning," a young man said sheepishly. "This is your wake-up call."

 

Annoyed, the guy let the motel worker have it. "You were supposed to call me at 6:00 AM!" He complained. "What if I had a million-dollar deal to close this morning, and your oversight made me miss out on it?"

 

"Well, sir," the desk clerk quickly replied, "if you had a million-dollar deal to close, you probably wouldn't be staying in this motel!"

Jack Benny and George Burns became friends when both were young performers working their way up through the vaudeville circuit, and they remained friends until Benny died. One day, they were lunching at a Hollywood restaurant, and Benny was wrestling with the problem of whether or not to butter his bread.

 

"I like butter on my bread," he said. "But my diet strictly forbids butter. Maybe I should call Mary and ask her what to do."

 

"Jack," Burns said, "don't be ridiculous. You're a grown man. You should be able to decide, without your wife's help, whether or not to butter your own bread."

 

"You're right," Benny said. "I'll just have the butter, that's all."

 

When the waiter arrived with the check, Burns pointed to Benny and said, "He's paying."

 

"What?" Benny said. "Why should I have to pay the whole bill?"

 

"Because if you don't," Burns said, "I'll tell Mary about the butter."

A blonde went to a flight school, insisting she wanted to learn to fly that day. As all the planes were currently in use, the busy owner agreed to instruct her on how to pilot the helicopter solo by radio. He took her out, showed her how to start it and gave her the basics and sent her on her way.

 

After she climbed 1000 feet, she radioed in. "I'm doing great! I love it! The view is so beautiful, and I'm starting to get the hang of this."

 

After 2000 feet, she radioed again, saying how easy it was becoming to fly. The instructor watched her climb over 3000 feet, and was beginning to worry that she hadn't radioed in.

 

A few minutes later, he watched in horror as she crashed about half a mile away. He ran over and pulled her from the wreckage.

 

When he asked what happened, she said, "I don't know! Everything was going fine, but as I got higher, I was starting to get cold. I can't remember anything after I turned off the big fan."

He proceeds to climb a tall tower, and jumps off. He flaps his arms wildly, and finally his fall slows. He soars forward, then swoops upward, turns and swoops back again. Finally he stops in mid air and gently lowers himself to the ground landing softly on the toe of one foot.

Morris stares blankly at him for a long time. Finally he says, "Is that all you've got? Bird imitations?"

David filled his car with gas at a self-service gas station.

After he had paid and driven away, he realized that he had left the gas cap on top of his car. He stopped and looked and, sure enough, it was lost.

Well, he thought for a second and realized that other people must have done the same thing, and that it was worth going back to look by the side of the road since even if he couldn't find his own gas cap, he might be able to find one that fit.

Sure enough, he hadn't been searching long when he found a gas cap. He tried it on, and it went into place with a satisfying click.

"Great," David thought, "I lost my gas cap, but I found another one that fits. And this one's even better because it locks ..."

There was a sudden hush, and everyone looked at her. Her husband was mortified. He pulled her away and whispered, "We're leaving right now. Get your coat and let's get out of here." 

As they drove home, he kept muttering to himself. Finally his wife turned to him. "You're angry about something." 

"Oh really? You noticed?" he sneered. "I've never been so embarrassed in my life! You saw Mozart take the No. 5 bus to Coney Island? Don't you know the No. 5 bus doesn't go out to Coney Island?"

HELPLINE: "It's a starter motor that draws current from your battery and turns over the engine."

A man driving his car down a country road was forced to stop before a giant puddle blocking the entire way. Looking to the side of the road, the man noticed a goober leaning on a fence.

 

"Think it's safe to cross?" the man asked.

 

"I reckon so," replied the goober.

 

Pulling ahead, the mans car was immediately swallowed by the puddle. In fact, it was so deep that he had to roll his window down to swim out and up to the surface. As his head broke the surface the man said to the goober, "I thought you said I could safely drive through this puddle!"

 

"Well, shoot!" he relied, scratching his head. "It only comes up chest-high on my ducks!"

An ice cream store employee is standing behind the counter on a typical day, when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant goobers. They come up to the counter, order 10 triple-scoop cones and take their order over and sit down at a large table. Then they begin chanting, "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!"

 

Soon, three more goobers arrive, take up their cones and the chanting grows. "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!"

 

Two more goobers show up and soon their voices are joined in raising the roof. "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!"

 

Finally, the tenth goober comes in with a picture under her arm. She walks over to the table, sets the picture in the middle and the table erupts. Up jump the others, they begin dancing around the table, exchanging high-fives, all the while chanting "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!"

 

The store employee can't contain his curiosity any longer, so he walks over to the table. There in the center is a beautifully framed child's puzzle of the Cookie Monster. When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the employee asks one of the goobers, "What's all the chanting and celebration about?"

 

The goober who brought in the picture pipes in, "Everyone thinks that goobers are dumb and they make fun of us. So, we decided to set the record straight. Ten of us got together, bought that puzzle and put it together. The side of the box said 2-4 years, but we put it together in 51 days!"

"Is it defective?" replies the clerk.

 

"Yes," says the goober, "it does not work the way it's supposed to. I was told it would keep hot things hot, and cold things cold and it doesn't do either."

 

"What did you put in it?" asks the clerk.

 

The goober says, "Two cups of coffee and an ice cream sandwich."

Over the years, people have come up with a number of great reasons to eat chocolate. The following 11 reasons are all viable options for yourself or a friend to eat chocolate with a clear conscience. ENJOY!

 

*Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar CANE or sugar BEETS. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable. To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food.

 

*Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

 

*If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

 

*The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

 

*Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite, and you'll eat less.

 

*If you eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate, is that a balanced diet? Don't they actually counteract each other?

 

*Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger. Therefore, you need to eat more chocolate.

 

*Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

 

*A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Now, isn't that handy?

 

*If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?
