    and with the sheep she went to sleep.
    The sheep turned out to be a ram
    and Mary had a little lamb.

    Old mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
    To get the postman a letter.
    But when she got there, the cupboard was bare
    So they did it without. It was better.

    or yet

    Old mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
    To get her poor dog a bone.
    But when she bent over along came old Rover
    And gave her a bone of his own.

            • So a guy is coming up for his citizenship hearing but is worried about how hard that might be and asks a friend who'd passed it not long back.

              "Well," the friend says, "It's not that hard. They only ask you three questions. Who was the first president of the United States, how many states are there, and what are the colors of the American flag? But just to make sure, I wrote the answers on the waistband of my shorts so I could cheat if I needed to."

              "Brilliant!" the first guy says. "Say, ... what would you take for that pair of shorts?"

              After some hard bargaining he buys them for twenty five dollars and is filled with new confidence for his hearing. So the day for his hearing arrives and he's all set.

              The judge looks down and asks him, "So, what is the name of the first president of the United States?"

              Peeking down in his waistband he says, "J C Penney"

              "And how many states are there in the United States?"

              Peeking again, "Thirty-four and a half"

              "And what are the colors of the American flag?"

              "Brown and white."

              • Three men were sentenced to be executed by guillotine; a priest, a Muslim, and an Engineer.

                First was the priest and he asked: "Can I face upwards to see Heaven and my Creator?".

                His wish was granted, the blade fell, but stopped 1/2 inch from his neck, sparing his life.

                The executioner replied: "Since the guillotine has spared you, so shall be your life. You are allowed to leave."

                Next was the Muslim and he asked: "May I also face upwards to look to Allah before my death?"

                Again the guillotine stopped just short and his life was spared as well.

                The Engineer was last and he too asked to face upwards given what happened with the first two.

                As he lay there, he looked up at the mechanism and said: "Aha, I see the problem! The rope has jumped out of the pulley groove!"


                • ...then what happened?

                      In the morning, Paddy woke up with searing pain in both his head and backside and Brigit staring at him from across the room. She said, "You were drunk again last night weren't you Paddy?"

                      Paddy said, "Why would you say such a mean thing?"

                      "Well," Brigit said, "it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly it's all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror."

                      Jesus, Moses and a very old man are playing golf. At the first
                      hole there was a water puddle aprox 10 ft. from the hole. The first one
                      to go was Moses. He swung and it was a beautiful shot but it headed right
                      for the water puddle. Moses opened his eyes widely and the water split
                      down the middle and the ball rolled through. The ball finally stopped
                      about 5 ft from the hole.
                      Jesus looked at Moses and said "Good shot Moses."
                      Jesus was up next. He swung and it was a beautiful shot but it was
                      also heading directly for the water puddle. So Jesus opened his eyes very
                      wide and the golf ball sprouted legs and walked on the water. The ball
                      finally stopped about 3 ft from the hole.
                      Moses looked at Jesus and said "Good shot Jesus."
                      Finally, it was the older man's turn. He swung and being a weak old
                      man he only hit the ball about 15 ft. but before the ball stopped a gopher
                      picks the ball up and begins to run away, then an eagle swoops down and
                      grabs the gopher and begins to fly away with it, then a bolt of lightning
                      strikes the eagle, the eagle drops the gopher, the gopher hits the ground, the
                      ball flies out of its mouth and into the hole.
                      Jesus looks over at the old man and says "Good shot Dad."
