Bert always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots, so,
seeing some on sale, he bought them and wore them home.
Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and
said to his wife, "Notice anything different about me?"
Margaret looked him over. "Nope."
Frustrated, Bert stormed off into the bathroom, undressed and
walked back into the kitchen completely naked except for the boots.
Again he asked Margaret, a little louder this time, "Notice anything different NOW?"
Margaret looked up and said in her best deadpan, "Bert, what's different? It's hanging
down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it'll be hanging down again tomorrow."
Furious, Bert yelled, "AND DO YOU KNOW
WHY IT'S HANGING DOWN, MARGARET?"
"Nope. Not a clue", she replied.
"IT'S HANGING DOWN, BECAUSE IT'S LOOKING AT MY NEW BOOTS!!!!"
Without missing a beat Margaret replied,
"Shoulda bought a hat, Bert. Shoulda bought a hat."
About "Friday FWD": No matter how many times I tell my family
and friends to stop sending me those annoying forwarded chain emails,
they still manage to seep into my inbox. I'm talking about the email messages
with funny or inspirational photos and quotes that require you to pass them
along to 5 or more of your friends in order for some dream or wish to come true
Because I've failed to get rid of them, I'm going to
burden all of you each Friday with
one of them. The honest truth is, some are actually worth forwarding (Gasp, I know)
