Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Ok, now I feel really guilty. Wednesday night is choral practice.
We’re singing on Temple Square on December 4th at 8PM (Plug). But,
my father-in-law #1 was helping unload Boy Scout popcorn. [We were
just too fund raiser’d out for popcorn this year] Anyway, they gave
him several tickets to a pre-screening of “National Treasure”
http://nationaltreasure.movies.go.com/main.html and we decided to
go as a family. So I bugged out of practice tonight. (Sorry Jim!
But that’s only 2... grin)

Anyway, the movie is kind of a modern Indiana Jones, wannabe sort
of film. The 3 older boys really liked it, but I’d only give it a
lukewarm 7 out of 10, or a C+. A lot of the stuff was not
believable and far-fetched, but it was sprinkled with some
interesting history stuff. But then the bad guy was kind of hard to
figure out. First he was a friend, then an enemy, then nice, then
mean. Hard to follow.

All in all, it wasn’t a bad move for matinee or a dollar theater
movie. I don’t think I’d pay $7 or $8 to see it thought. Of course,
there aren’t many I would. Star Wars maybe. [BTW, The trailer is
out at http://www.starwars.com/]

Anyway, enough movie stuff. On with the jokes!

Oh, and don’t forget to check out and bid on, a personalized hand painted painting from a photograph like son #4’s “Angry Face” or
son #3’s toothless grin on eBay at

Now, really, on to the jokes.

No, just kidding. Sorry, one last thing... the answers to yesterday’s quiz are at the bottom of today’s issue.
Congratulations to

Larry B.
Sandy G. and
Dora Q.

(in that order)

Enjoy today’s Jokes!
