From the Laugh Track  this from Sarah Kirchen

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary clinic. As she laid her pet on the table,
the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two,          

the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm so sorry, Cuddles has passed away."

The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure?


"Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead," he replied.


"How can you be so sure," she protested. "I mean, you haven't done any testing on him or
anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

 

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and  left the room. He returned a few moments later
with a black Labrador retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood
on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to
bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog
and took it out, and returned a few moments later with a beautiful cat.  The cat jumped up on
the table and also sniffed delicately at the bird. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its

head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100%
certifiably, a dead duck."
       
Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he
handed to the woman. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill."$150!", she cried, "One
hundred and fifty dollars just to tell me my duck is dead?!" The vet shrugged. "I'm sorry. If
you’d taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but what with the Lab Report and
the Cat Scan ...."

 

THE SNOW NUTS CHRONICLES

(DICKIE AND HIS NICKNAME) 
From our Resident Sage Gene Johnson 

 

I guess it’s a generally known fact that little boys have a penchant for nicknaming each other. 

This is a sign of affection, and many of these nicknames are in active use to this day, i.e.
Mouse, Snake, Quaz, Freddie Bear, Shirt etc., etc.

 

Dickie Cooper was no exception.  He had a nickname for many years, Meatball.  It always fit
but didn’t fit.  We never really liked it that much and would only use it occasionally, even
though Dickie never seemed to mind.  The problem was that Dickie always seemed like a
man without a country… he had no nickname which had stuck… no badge of identity…
nothing on which to hang his psyche…
UNTIL THAT DAY!!!

 

Larry Johnson, class of ‘62 (no relation), and I would meet at the bottom of the south stairs
in the Central basement.  He would be waiting on Bettye Jo to go to lunch, and I would be on
the way to the boys’ smoking room.  On this day (11th grade) Dickie came bouncing down the
stairs and headed our way with the comment, “Wanna to hear a joke?”


Let’s pause:  You need to understand that the poor thing could never tell a joke.  Though the
punch lines were always a mess, the output was usually much funnier than the original punch
line… this day was no exception.

 

We resume:  Larry, being fully aware of this shortcoming, cut his eyes at me, then looked at
Dickie and said, “OK Dickie, what’s the joke?”
       
Dickie:  “What’s the difference between a snow boy and a snow girl?”

 

Larry:  After smiling and shaking his head, “I don’t know, Dickie… what is the difference
between a snow boy and a snow girl?”

 

Dickie: “Snow Nuts” Dickie then headed to the cafeteria without a backward glance.

 

While we stood there shaking our heads and watched him walk away, Larry said, “That
sounds about right, but how does he do that?”

 

I just shrugged.

 

A nickname was born!!!

Warnings from Warriors

A letter from Reeder Dowdy, in San Antonio, warns of rumors that landscaping mulch
composed of building material from the costal area devastated by hurricane Katrina,may
contain FormosanTermites. These aggressive pests could be spread into other areas of
the country as the mulchis shipped, especially to the mass merchandisers such as
Home Depot and Lowes. While both Snopes and various State Depts of Agriculture advise
that the chances of this are remote because of rigorous quarantines set in place, bagged
mulch should be examined and should termites befound, the gardener should contact his
local Ag. Dept
