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.

4/13 - Itchy Easter

Thursday, April 13, 2006

There’s something about the boys teaming up on dad and saying,
“Oh, c’mon, we don’t have school tomorrow. Play us another game of
StarCraft!” I’m always a sucker to beat 3 little boys in a war
game. But, that puts me late for the Joke of the Day. (It’s 11
already) Oh well. I’ll try to find some Easter jokes and make the
best of a quick issue.

Boy, the hay fever has really got to me this year. My eyes have
been REALLY itching this week. Ugg... There’s a place in our
clinic that does allergy shots, but they’re shots. Not that I
don’t like shots, it’s just that I would rather not have them.
But, this year might be different.

We’re getting close to our trip to Disney World. I was hesitant to
look forward to the trip, because I was dreading son #4’s last MRI
brain scan. I assume that a bad scan can ruin a Make-a-Wish trip
just like that. But, things are good so now we can get excited for
the trip! Our next MRI is scheduled for July 6th at 7:15AM. Remind
me ‘eh? I goofed on this one and was a day early.

And, for those of you who only attend church twice a year, yes,
this is your weekend. Make the best of it ‘eh?!

Anyway, have a great Easter weekend.

For those of you who get this as email...
Enjoy today’s Jokes!

A man was coming out of church one Easter morning, and the
preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands.
He grabbed the man by the hand and pulled him aside. The Pastor
said, "You need to join the Army of the Lord!" The man said, "I'm
already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor." Pastor questioned, "How
come I don't see you except at Christmas and Easter?" He whispered
back, "I'm in the secret service!"


A lady opened her refrigerator and saw a rabbit sitting on one of
the shelves.

"What are you doing in there?" she asked.

The rabbit replied: "This is a Westinghouse, isn't it?",

to which the lady replied "Yes."

"Well," the rabbit said,

"I'm westing."


Q. A man wanted an Easter pet for his daughter. He looked at a
baby chick and a baby duck. They were both very cute, but he
decided to buy the baby chick. Do you know why?
A. The baby chick was a little cheeper!


A man was driving along the highway, and saw the Easter rabbit
hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting
the rabbit, but unfortunately the Easter rabbit jumped in front of
the car and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the
place, candy too. The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an
animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to
see what had become of the rabbit carrying the basket. Much to
his dismay, the colorful rabbit was dead. The driver felt so
awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the
man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped
out of her car and asked the man what was wrong. "I feel
terrible!" he explained, "I accidentally hit the Easter rabbit and
killed it. Kids will be so disappointed. What should I do?" The
woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to
her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the
dead, limp rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the
furry animal. Miraculously the Easter rabbit came to life, jumped
up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two
humans and hopped down the road. 50 yards away the Easter rabbit
stopped turned around, waved and hopped down the road. Another 50
yards down, he turned, waved and hopped another 50 yards. And
waved again!!!! The man was astonished. He couldn't figure out
what substance could be in the woman's spray can!! He ran over to
the woman and asked, "What is in your spray can? What did you
spray on the Easter rabbit?" The woman turned the can around so
that the man could read the label. It said: "Hair spray. Restores
life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave."

    Hi, Marty--
    I think of you all a lot--hope you are well; glad the scan was clear!

    We did our Make A Wish to Disney just a few weeks ago; it was truly one of the most amazing experiences we ever had. Give Kids the World is beyond description--an entire resort built by love.

    have an awesome time,
    Kristin, Genna's mom
