Joke of The Day

 It’s the first day of football practise, and the coach notices that little Jimmy has a wee bit of talent. So he calls to Jimmy and tells to come over. “Hey kid,” he asks, “do you think you could pass a football?” little Jimmy ponders for a moment and looks up at the coach. “Christ,” he replies. “I don’t think I could even swallow one.”
