The triumph of age and experience

2013 pictures

Here is a fun, funny joke to help everyone get through another stressful, drab last day of the year!

Patrick The Poet

The triumph of age and experience:

A farmer stopped by the local mechanics shop to have his truck fixed. They couldn’t do it while he waited, so he said he didn’t live far and would just walk home.

On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint. He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem – how to carry his entire purchases home.

While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost. She asked, ‘Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane ?’

The farmer said, ‘Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house I would walk you there but I can’t carry this lot.’

The old lady suggested, ‘Why don’t you put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?’

‘Why thank you very much,’ he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home.

On the way he says ‘Let’s take my short cut and go down this alley. We’ll be there in no time..

The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, ‘I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me…How do I know that when we get in the alley you won’t hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and have your way with me?’

The farmer said, ‘Holy smokes lady! I’m carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?’

The old lady replied, ‘Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I’ll hold the chickens.

Amish discover the elevator!

A funny joke for this fine Poet’s Day!

Patrick The Poet

 

Subject: Amish discover the elevator

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny,  silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, ‘What is this Father?’
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.’
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old  lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a  button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a  small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number… and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.
Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.
The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son…
Go get your Mother!”

Priceless testimony‏

Love this one!  You will too.

Patrick The Poet

 
If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman.   He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility ...   Q: 'Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?'   A: 'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.'   Q: 'Officer, who provided this description?'   A: 'The officer who responded to the scene.'   Q: 'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?'   A: 'Yes, sir. With my life.'   Q: 'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?'   A: 'Yes sir, we do!'   Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room?'   A: 'Yes, sir, I do.'   Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker?'  A: 'Yes, sir.'   Q: 'Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?'  A: 'You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.'  The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 12-18-09)

There ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, ‘I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it.’ It’s called perseverance.
–Lee Iacocca

A society made up of individuals who were all capable of original thought would probably be unendurable.
–H.L. Mencken

At the end of each day, you should play back the tapes of your performance. The results should either applaud you or prod you.

The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.

People ask you for criticism, but they only want praise.
–W. Somerset Maugham, playwright and novelist

Most people spend their entire lives on a fantasy island called “Someday I’ll…”
–Denis Waitley

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.
–Henry Ward Beecher

The life that conquers is the life that moves with a steady resolution and persistence toward a predetermined goal. Those who succeed are those who have thoroughly learned the immense importance of plan in life, and the tragic brevity of time.
–W.J. Davison

Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
–Malcolm Forbes

People say that what we’re all seeking in life is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive.
–Joseph Campbell

Friendship is a strong and habitual inclination in two persons to promote the good and happiness of one another.
–Budgell, Eustace

If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor.

A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
