Joke of The Day

 I was at my divorce settlement yesterday, when I announced I would like to make a suggestion.
They agreed, so, I told them, "She can have the car, the house, all the funds in our joint account and full custody of our children on one condition... I get to keep whatever I have in my pocket."
"It's a deal," my wife said, with a smug look on her face.
"You obviously didn't check the lottery numbers last night, did you?"

Quote of The Day

"I bought my epileptic cousin a strobe light for his birthday...
He'll have a fit when he sees it."
