Joke of The Day

Every day, A man jogged past a prostitute standing on the same street corner. He learned to brace himself as he approached her for what she always yelled.
"One hundred and fifty dollars!" she'd shout from the curb.
"No! Five dollars!" He would yell back, just to shut her up.
This ritual between him and the prostitute became a daily occurrence.
He'd run by and she'd  yell, "One hundred and Fifty dollars!"
He'd  yell back, "Five dollars!"
One day, his wife decided accompany him on his jog.
As the jogging couple neared the working woman's street corner,
The man realised she'd bark her $150 offer and his wife would wonder what he'd really been doing on all his past outings.
He  figured he'd better have a good explanation for his Wife.
As  they jogged into the turn that would take them past the corner, he became even more apprehensive than usual.
Sure enough, there was the prostitute. He tried to avoid the prostitute's  eyes as she watched the pair jogging past.
Then, from her corner, she yelled:
"See  what you get for five dollars, you cheap bastard!" 

Quote of The Day

"A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure."
- Czech Proverb  - Happy Independent Czechoslovak State Day!
