Joke of The Day

 Dear Deisel,
I have been unable to sleep since I forced my daughter
to break off her engagement to you. Will you forgive and forget?
I was much too sensitive about your Mohawk, tattoo, and pierced nose.
I now realize motorcycles aren't really that dangerous, and I really
should not have reacted the way I did to the fact that you have never
held a job.
I am sure, too, that some other very nice people live under the
bridge in the park.
Sure, my daughter is only 17 and wants to marry you instead of going
to Harvard on a full ride scholarship. After all, you can't learn
everything about life from books. I sometimes forget how backward I
can be. I was wrong. I was a fool. I have now come to my senses and
you have my full blessing to marry my daughter.

Your future father-in-law....
P. S. Congratulations on winning the Powerball lottery

Quote of The Day

"Friendship is like peeing on yourself, everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings."
