It was a typical school day in Britain and a young boy arrived in class late.
"Why are you late, Johnny?" asked the teacher

"All right Johnny," said the teacher, "never mind. Now today we are doing geography and here is a map of the British Isles. Can anyone tell me where the Scottish border is?"
"Yes Miss," said Johnny. "In bed with my Mom. That's why I had to get my own breakfast."

Wednesday, July 23, 2008 -- Lover's Lane
A guy and his date were parked on a back road way out of town. Things started to heat up and he began to undo her dress.
"I probably should have mentioned this before," she said, "but I'm a prostitute and if you want to have sex with me, it will cost you $20."
The guy wasn't happy, but he paid up. Afterwards, he got dressed but just sat in the driver's seat without starting the engine.
"Why aren't we going anywhere?" asked the woman.
"I probably should have mentioned this before," he replied, "but I'm a taxi driver and if you want to get back to town it will cost you $30!"
(Thanks to Christy)
Thursday, July 24, 2008 -- Fine Art
A fellow was rummaging through the attic of a house he had inherited from a recently deceased grandparent when he came across a painting that looked like it had been done by one of the 18th Century great masters. He also discovered a dusty violin that looked as though it might have been handmade.
Not being an authority on paintings nor on musical instruments of any kind, he decided to take the items to a professional appraiser.
After studying the finds for a little while, the appraiser put down his magnifying glass and said, "What you have here, young man, is a genuine Rembrandt and an authentic Stradivarius."
"Wow!" was all the fellow could say as his eyes widened and his heart began to pound.
"Unfortunately," added the appraiser, "Stradivarius was a lousy painter, and Rembrandt couldn't build a decent violin to save his life."

Monday, July 28, 2008 -- The Postcard
The psychiatrist got a postcard one morning from one of his patients. It read, "Having a wonderful time. Wish you were here so you could tell me why."

Wednesday, July 30, 2008 -- The Lawyer & Charity
A local United Way office realized that the organization had never received a donation from the town's most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.
"Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to the community in some way?"
The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, "First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?"
Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, "Um ... no."
The lawyer interrupts, "or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?"
The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted again.
"Or that my sister's husband died in a traffic accident," the lawyer's voice rising in indignation, "leaving her penniless with three children?!"
The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, "I had no idea..."
On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, "So if I don't give any money to them, why should I give any to you?"
(Thanks to Anthony)
Thursday, July 31, 2008 -- The Library
A librarian was fast asleep at 3am when the phone rang. The voice on the other end of the line said, "What time does the library open?"
"Nine o'clock," replied the librarian bleary-eyed. "And what's the idea of calling me at home in the middle of the night to ask a question like that?"
"Not until nine o'clock?" said the caller, disappointed.
"No, not until nine o'clock," repeated the librarian angrily. "Why do you want to get in before nine o'clock?"
"I don't want to get in," said the caller, "I want to get out."
