Some puns….

A mans home is his castle, in a manor of speaking. A hangover is the wrath of grapes.

A gossip is someone with a great sense of rumor.

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is four-fifths of the price. What is his profit?1960: A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is four-fifths of the price, or $80. What is his profit? 1970 (new maths): A logger exchanges a set L of lumber for a set M of money. The cardinality of set M is 100, and each element is worth $1.00. Make 100 dots representing the elements of the set M. The set C of the costs of production contains 20 fewer points than set M. Represent the set C as a subset of M, and answer the following question: What is the cardinality of the set P of profits?1980: A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80, and his profit is $20. Your assignment: underline the number 20. 1990: (outcome-based education): By cutting down beautiful forest trees, a logger makes $20. What do you think of this way of making a living?

7. When you get back to your room, sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well-lighted place with plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.
8. Read over the assignment again to make absolutely certain you understand it.

Mildly off color story using fractured French

(This story is old and is from a time when even in France certain rubber and
leather goods were not openly sold.)

An American couple is in Paris, a much awaited trip, when suddenly the wife
dies of a heart attack. The husband decides to have her buried there as the
visit to France was something they had longed for for many years. All
arrangements are made when he suddenly realizes that he doesnt have a black
hat for the funeral. The hotel concierge tells him that what he wants is a
chapeau noir. So off he goes to find a store open late.

First he meets a gendarme and in his fractured French asks, Msieur, ou
pouvais-je acheter un capeau noir? (1)

The policeman is a bit surprised but, after thinking a bit, gives our friend
directions. The store–if that is what it is–looks a little seedy and run
down, but the man behind the counter looks friendly so in goes our friend.
He speaks first:

Msieur, je veux acheter un capeau noir.

Mais, monsieur, jai des capeaux rouges, des capeaux blancs, et des capeaux
marrons, mais pas des capeaux noires. Pourquoi avez vous besoin dun capeau
noir?

Ma femme est morte.

O Monsieur! Quelle beau sentiment!

(1) The story hinges on the pun: chapeau(hat)–capeau(slang for condom)

Easy To Operate On

Four surgeons were taking a coffee break and were discussing their work.


The first said, I think accountants are the easiest to operate on. You open them up and everything inside is numbered.


The second said, I think librarians are the easiest to operate on. You open them up and everything inside is in alphabetical order.


The third said, I like to operate on electricians. You open them up and everything inside is color-coded.


The fourth one said, I like to operate on lawyers. Theyre heartless, spineless, gutless, and their head and their butt are interchangeable.
