At my local library, I asked the librarian if he had a book about Pavlov's dog and Schrodinger's cat.

He said it rang a bell, but he wasn't sure if it was there or not.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

An Oldie ... But Still A Goody:

""Don Smith is on his deathbed and knows the end is near.
His nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons, are with him.

He asks for 2 witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to record his last will and testament,
and when all is ready he begins to speak:

* My son, "Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses."
* My daughter "Sybil, you take the apartments over in the East end."
* My son, "Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City Center."
* "Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the
banks of the river."

The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his extensive
holdings, and as Don slips away, the nurse says, "Mrs. Smith, your husband
must have been such a hard-working man to have accumulated all that property".

Sarah replies,
"Property ? .. The idiot had a paper route.""
Ahoy, me Hardies!

I don't remember where I heard this one (I don't even remember if the names are correct), but it made me laugh.

Two parents, Sara and James, had a son named Samuel. Samuel was a smart kid, but he failed math class. His teachers and his parents could not figure out why. His parents tried sending him to various schools and counselors, but his math skills never improved.

As a last resort, Sara and James decided to send Samuel to Sunday School. Samuel went to school, came home, and started doing homework right away. This process repeated for several weeks, then Samuel brought home a math test to show to his parents. They looks at it and were completely amazed -- he had gotten an A+!

"Wow! Good job, Samuel," James said.

"What happened to make you do so well?" Sara asked.

Samuel replied, "Well, I went in and introduced myself to class. I wasn't real interested, so I didn't pay attention at first. It was when I saw the man nailed to the plus sign that I knew they meant business."

A woman asked the pharmacist, "Do you sell Kolaloka lemonade?"

"Yes we do," he answered.

She asked, "Does it work?"

"Yes it does," he answered.

She said, "Can you get it over the counter?"

"I can, if I take two," he replied.
