Leave ‘Em Laughing

I dialed a number and got the following recording: 
“I am not available right now but thank you for caring enough to call. I am making some changes in my life. Please leave a message after the beep. If I don’t return your call, you are one of those changes.” 

My wife and I had words… but I didn’t get to use mine. 
Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses. 

The irony of life is that, by the time you’re old enough to know your way around, you’re not going anywhere. 

Stranded on a Deserted Island

There was a cruise ship going through some rough waters that ended up sinking just off the coast of a small, deserted island. There were only 3 survivors—2 guys and a girl. They lived there for a couple of years doing what was natural for men and women.

After several years of casual sex all the time, the girl felt really bad about what she had been doing. She felt having sex with both guys was so bad that she killed herself. It was very tragic, but the two guys managed to get through it and after a while nature once more took its inevitable course.

Well, a couple more years passed, and the guys began to feel absolutely horrible about what they were doing. So,………………………. they buried her.

After Christmas break, a teacher asked her young students how they had spent their holidays. One small boy wrote the following:

“We always used to spend Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma. They used to live here in a big brick house. But Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Florida. Now they live in a place with a lot of other retarded people. They all live in little tin boxes. They ride on big three-wheeled tricycles and they all wear name tags because they don’t know who they are. They go to a big building called a ‘wrecked hall’, but if it was wrecked, they got it fixed because it’s alright now. They play games and do exercise there, but they don’t do them very good.

There is a swimming pool there. They go into it and just stand there with their hats on. I guess they don’t remember how to swim. As you go into their park, there’s a dollhouse with a man sitting in it. He watches all day so they can’t get out without him seeing them. When they can sneak out, they go to the beach and pick up shells.

My Grandma used to bake cookies and stuff, but I guess she forgot how. Nobody cooks. They just eat out. They eat the same thing every night called “early birds”. Some of the people are so retarded they don’t know how to cook at all, so my Grandma and Grandpa bring food into the wrecked hall and they call it “pot luck”.

My Grandma, says Grandpa worked all his life and earned his retardment I wish they’d move back up here, but I guess the little man in the doll house won’t let them out.”
