Women, Give Yourselves Credit!

To do many little things constantly, and carefully, and kindly, is not a little thing.

Jasper's Jokes

Jasper is cracking me up with his jokes lately. Here are a couple. This is pretty much the way he tells them--he's really got the delivery down.

1. "So, I ran into my friend yesterday and his nose was all red and puffy. I said, 'Hey, what happened to your nose?' 'Well,' he said, 'I was walking along and just bent over to smell a brose.' 'There's no 'b' in rose,' I said. 'There was in that one!'"

2. "Yesterday I saw my friend sittin' on the sidewalk watching the chickens cross the road. 'Why are you watchin' that??' I asked. 'Because!' he said, 'It's poultry in motion!'"

And while we're at it, the following has to be my all-time favorite joke. Part of the reason it was so great is because it was so timely when I heard it. Remember when the Mars Polar Lander was first sent up? That's when I heard this joke:

"Knock, Knock."

"Who's there?"

"Mars Polar Lander."

"Mars Polar Lander who?"

That's it! That's the joke. The answer is just silence. Still makes me laugh my head off just to type it! Ah, well. I guess you had to be there.
