Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors
One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They
discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida.
The first said, “You know I had a big house built for Mama.”
The second said, “And, I had a large theater built in the house.”
The third said, “And, I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her.”
The fourth said, “You know how Mama loved reading the Bible, and you know she can’t read anymore because she can’t see very well. Well, I met this preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible. It took ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $50,000 a year for five years to the church but it was worth it.
Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it.”
The three other brothers were impressed. After the celebration, Mama sent out her “Thank You” notes.
Milton, the house you built is so huge that I live in only one room but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway.”
“Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home. I have my groceries delivered so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks.”
“Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I’ve lost my hearing,
and I’m nearly blind. I’ll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the
“Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you so much.”
Bill and his wife Blanche go to the state fair every year.
Every year, Bill would say, “Blanche, I’d like to ride in that helicopter.”
Blanche always replied, “I know Bill but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks,
and fifty bucks is fifty bucks!”
One year Bill and Blanche went to the fair, and Bill said,
“Blanche, I’m 75 years old, if I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.”
To this, Blanche replied, “Bill that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks.”
The pilot overheard the couple and said, “Folks I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don’t say a word I won’t charge you a penny but if you say one word it’s fifty bucks.”
Bill and Blanche agreed; so up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard.
He did his daredevil tricks over and over again but still not a word.
When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said, “By golly, I did everything
I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t. I’m impressed! “
Bill replied, “Well, to tell you the truth I almost said something when
Blanche fell out, but you know, Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!“
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her faithful, aged poodle named Cuddles along for the company.
One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long Cuddles discovers that she’s lost. Wandering about, she notices a leopard heading rapidly in her direction with the intention of having lunch.
The old poodle thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in trouble now!”
Noticing some bones on the ground close by, she immediately settles down to chew on the bones with her back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the old poodle exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?”
Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.
“Whew!” says the leopard, “That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!”
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up.
The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!”
The old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now?”, but instead of running, the dog sits down with her back to her attackers, pretending she hasn’t seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says: “Where’s that monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!”

Weekends used to be my downtime from social media.
During our current crisis, media has become our way of communicating.
To brighten up your spirits here is a silly joke.
If you have a post with something humorous, be sure to leave it in the comment area.
I’m always up for a laugh or two. I hope you are too.
