Jokes of the week
A man was in the hospital with a diagnosis that he wouldn’t live long. He turned to his priest and said, “If I die, bury me in Walmart; that way my wife will see me every day.
A woman in line heard a woman behind her say, “I’m real happy we’re building a dollar store in town. Thank goodness! Now I won’t have to dress up like when I go to Walmart.”
A man’s beloved convertible was in deplorable shape, but he refused to get rid of it. So, when the old junker was stolen from his office parking lot, his family was delighted. Even so, they called the police and filed an insurance claim. Their relief was short lived because within an hour, a police officer called.
“We found the car less than a mile away,” he said. “It had a note on it that said, ‘Thanks anyway, but we’d rather walk.’”
