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.

Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Anyway, near the end of the movie, there’s a scene of the main
character dancing at a high school assembly, and he does a pretty
good job. I guess son #4 liked it a lot, because when the credits
rolled, and they played music at the end, son #4 got up and did a
boogie dance for the family. We kept egging him on, so he kept
dancing. When the music stopped, he flopped down and said, “I’m

I had the same thing happen when my wife gave me my phone. I
thought it was something my son was playing on the computer.

OH MY GOSH.......I was reading this just now and kept hearing a
beep. I thought maybe somehow you had embedded the beep into the
email but then I realized my speakers weren't on...it was my own
cell phone whose battery was about to die! Boy, do I feel dumb :)
Keep up the good work! Reading about your boys makes me feel
better about my 5!
