A Little Comic Relief
Every once in awhile, everyone needs a little comic relief so we decided to reprint a couple of stories emailed to us by friends of The Gardens.
An elderly man in Florida had owned a sizable farm for several years with a large pond in the back, fixed up nice — picnic tables, horseshoe courts and some orange and grapefruit trees. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.
One evening, the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn’t been there for awhile, and look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee and as he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end.
One of the women shouted to him, “We’re not coming out until you leave!”
The old man frowned. “I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.” Holding up the bucket, he said, “I’m here to feed the alligator.” Moral: Old men can still think fast!
Bob and the Blonde
Bob walked into a sports bar around 9:58 p.m. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV.
The 10 p.m. news was coming on. The news crew was covering the story of a man on the ledge of a large building preparing to jump. The blonde looked at Bob and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”
Bob said, “You know, I bet he’ll jump.”
The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.”
Bob placed a twenty dollar bill on the bar and said, “You’re on!”
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, they guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death.
The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20 to Bob. “Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.”
Bob replied, “I can’t take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 p.m. news, so I knew he’d jump.”
The blonde replied, “I did, too, but I didn’t think he’d do it again.”
Bob took the money!
