Tuesday, October 4, 2005 -- The Hunters
Four friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day……Ted went with Billy-Bob and Bert went with Roy. Much later that night, Ted returned to the camp alone and he was dragging a 300 pound ten-point buck. "Where's Billy-Bob?" asked Bert.
"He had a stroke of some kind while we were dragging the deer," said an exhausted Ted. "He's about three miles back up the trail."
"You left Billy-Bob out there and dragged the deer back?" asked Bert.
"Yes I did," nodded Ted. "And it was a tough call too, but then I figured no one will steal Billy-Bob."

A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble.
In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had better jump, and bailed out. Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining.
The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.
The lawyer then said, "I'm a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live." He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.
The priest looked at the little boy and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."
The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

A young man was strolling down a street in south London. As he passed a large building with a fence around it, he heard a group of people chanting "Thirteen, thirteen, thirteen" over and over again.
Curious, he tried to see over the fence, but couldn't. Then he spotted a knot in the wood, and put his eye to the hole.
He just managed to spy some old people sitting in deckchairs chanting, before a finger came out of nowhere and poked him in the eye. As he staggered back, the old people started chanting, "Fourteen, fourteen, fourteen ..."
"March Of The Penguins"
