and exclaimed, "This isn't a hazelnut daiquiri!" "No, I'm
sorry", replied the bartender, "it's a hickory daiquiri, doc."

- The symphony orchestra was performing Beethoven's Ninth. In the
piece, there's a long passage, about 20 minutes, during which the bass
violinists have nothing to do. Rather than sit around that whole time
looking stupid, some bassists decided to sneak offstage and go to the
tavern next door for a quick one. After slamming several beers in
quick succession, one of them looked at his watch and said, "Hey! We
need to get back!"
"No need to panic," said a fellow bassist. "I thought we might need
some extra time, so I tied the last few pages of the conductor's score
together with string. It'll take him a few minutes to get it untangled."
A few moments later they staggered back to the concert hall and took
their places in the orchestra. About this time, a member of the audience
noticed the conductor seemed a bit edgy and said as much to her
"Well, of course," said her companion. "Don't you see? It's the bottom
of the Ninth, the score is tied, and the bassists are loaded."

The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said, "I
do...Why?" The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said, "I just
thought you'd like to know that your horse is about dead outside!"

ready to die from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse water
and soon Silver was starting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger
turned to Tonto and said, "Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and
see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel
Tonto said, "Sure, Kemosabe" and took off running circles around
Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to
the bar to finish his drink.
A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks,
"Who owns that big white horse outside?"
The Lone Ranger stands again, and claims, "I do, what's wrong with
him this time?" The cowboy looks him in the eye and says,
"Nothing, but you left your Injun runnin'."
There were three medieval kingdoms on the shores of a lake. There was an
island in the middle of the lake, which the kingdoms had been fighting
over for years. Finally, the three kings decided that they would send
their knights out to do battle, and the winner would take the island.
The night before the battle, the knights and their squires pitched camp
and readied themselves for the fight. The first kingdom had 12 knights,
and each knight had five squires, all of whom were busily polishing
armor, brushing horses, and cooking food. The second kingdom had 20
knights, and each knight had 10 squires. Everyone at that camp was also
busy preparing for battle. At the camp of the third kingdom, there was
only one knight, with his squire. This squire took a large pot and hung
it from a looped rope in a tall tree. He busied himself preparing the
meal, while the knight polished his own armor.
When the hour of the battle came, the three kingdoms sent their squires
out to fight (this was too trivial a matter for the knights to join in).
The battle raged, and when the dust cleared, the only person left was
the lone squire from the third kingdom, having defeated the squires from
the other two kingdoms,
... thus proving that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to
the sum of the squires of the other two sides.
- A Dog Named Mace
A mechanic who worked out of his home had a dog named Mace.
Mace had a bad habit of eating all the grass on the mechanic's
lawn, so the mechanic had to keep Mace inside.
The grass eventually became overgrown. One day the mechanic
was working on a car in the backyard and dropped his wrench,
losing it in the tall grass.
He couldn't find it for the life of him, so he decided to call
it a day.
That night, Mace escaped from the house and ate all the grass
in the backyard. The next morning the mechanic went outside and
saw his wrench glinting in the sunlight.
Realizing what had happened he looked toward the heavens and
"A grazing Mace, how sweet the hound, that saved a wrench for me!"
- Rooster Bells
Uncle John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several
hundred young layers, called pullets, and 8 or 10 roosters. The roosters
were there for one purpose-to fertilize the eggs. Uncle John kept
records and any rooster or pullet that didn't perform well went into the
pot to be cooked for supper. The unfortunate victims were then replaced
by another, hopefully, more productive candidate.
Now this took an enormous amount of time. So when Uncle John found a
set of eight tiny bells (that each rang a different tone), he promptly
bought them. He glued a piece of foam rubber to each clapper shaft so
the bell wouldn't ring except when violently shaken. He hung a bell on
each rooster's neck and went and mixed a Mint Julep.
Now he could sit on the porch and sip while filling out an efficiency
report on the roosters by listening to the different tones of the bells
and marking down each encounter.
His favorite rooster was old Brewster. A very fine specimen he was
and yet as Uncle John sat listening, Brewster's bell did not ring at all
that morning. He went to investigate. Several roosters were chasing
pullets, bells a-ringing.
But Brewster had his bell in his beak so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak
up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
Uncle John was so proud of Brewster he entered him in the county
fair. Brewster was an overnight sensation.
They not only awarded him the No Bell prize but also the Pullet
- Doughboy Dead at 71...

- Back in the 1800s the Tates Watch Company of Massachusetts
wanted to produce other products and, since they already
made the cases for pocket watches, decided to market
compasses for pioneers traveling west. It turned out that
although their watches were of finest quality, their
compasses were so bad that people often ended up in Canada
