eating-lunchA little wit.

What’s good for the goose…a blonde joke about men…(From Surfersam.com)
An brown-haired guy, a red-haired guy and a blonde guy were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building.

They were eating lunch and the brown-haired guy said, “A ham sandwich! If I get a ham sandwich one more time for lunch, I’m going to jump off this building.”

The red-haired guy opened his lunch box and exclaimed, “Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I’m going to jump off, too.”

The blonde opened his lunch and said, “Bologna again! If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I’m jumping too.”

The next day, the brown-haired guy opened his lunch box, saw a ham sandwich, and jumped to his death.

The red-haired guy opened his lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped, too.

The blonde guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death as well.

At the funeral, the brown-haired guy’s wife was weeping. She said, “If I’d known how really tired he was of ham, I never would have given it to him again!”

The red-haired guy’s wife also wept and said, “I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn’t realize he hated burritos so much.”

Everyone turned and stared at the blonde’s wife. The blonde’s wife said, “Don’t look at me. The idiot made his own lunch.”

harrisonA little whatever.

William Henry Harrison, ninth President of the United States, delivered his inaugural address on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building on March 3, 1841. During the speech, which was more than an hour in length, Harrison caught a chill which eventually led to pneumonia. Harrison died in the White House on April 4, 1841, only 31 days after taking office–the shortest term of any president. Because he was the first president to die in office, there was a brief Constitutional crisis concerning the presidential line of succession. Many of the questions raised by his illness and subsequent death were not resolved until the passage of the 25th Amendment in 1967, one hundred twenty-six years later.
