Jokes You Can Use:
A biology teacher wished to demonstrate to his students the harmful effects of alcohol on living organisms. For his experiment, he showed them a beaker with pond water in which there was a thriving civilization of worms. When he added some alcohol into the beaker the worms doubled-up and died.
“Now,” he said,” what do you learn from this?”
An eager student gave his answer.
“Well the answer is obvious,” he said ” if you drink alcohol, you’ll never have worms.”
The following 15 Police Comments were taken from actual police car videos around the country.
#15 “Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while.”
# 14 “If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document.”
#13 “If you run, you’ll only go to jail tired.”
#12 “Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that’s the
speed of the bullet that’ll be chasing you.”
#11 “You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can
write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?”
#10 “Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don’t think
it will help. Oh, did I mention that I’m the shift supervisor?”
#9 “Warning! You want a warning? O. K., I’m warning you not to do that
again or I’ll give you another ticket.”
#8 “The answer to this last question will determine whether you are
drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?”
#7 “Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go
to ride on rides, eat cotton candy, and corn dogs and step in monkey poo. ”
#6 “Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven.”
#5 “In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC.”
#4 “How big were those ‘Just two beers’ you say you had?”
#3 “No sir, we don’t have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we’re allowed to write as many tickets as we can.”
#2 “I’m glad to hear that chief (of Police) Hawker is a personal friend
of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.”
#1 “You didn’t think we give pretty women tickets? You’re right, we don’t. Sign here.”
