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.

7/10 - Repent and get your own ice cream!

Monday, July 10, 2006

It’s a slow night for stories. We had another uneventful weekend.
We decided to go to Randolph for our 10th cleaning trip. We found
more shotgun shells, and showed dad’s 54 MG TF series convertible
to a potential buyer. It’s in pretty rough shape, but still a cool
little car. Neither of us knew what it was worth, so we have to do
some checking.

For family night tonight, we had a lesson on repentance, and the
steps you need to take to repent. Then we went down to the grocery
store to get some ice cream cones. Sons #1 and #2 had some checks
to cash at the service counter after we got our treats. Then an
older lady standing behind us in line said to son #4, “That looks
like a really good ice cream cone.” He nodded. Then she teased him
and said, “Do you think I could have a bite?” He answered, “Oh no,
this one is mine. You can go down there, turn the corner and get
your own.” She smiled and they kept up a 5 minute conversation
while the lady at the counter cashed checks.

Son #4 never was one to shy away from an opportunity to speak to a
senior citizen...

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

At Heathrow Airport today, an individual, later discovered to be a
public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while
in possession of a compass, a protractor, and a graphical
calculator. Authorities believe he is a member of the notorious
Al-Gebra movement. He is being charged with carrying weapons of
math instruction!


The United States Treasury has announced they are recalling the
new Texas quarters. "We are recalling all of the new Texas
quarters that were recently issued," Treasury Undersecretary
Russell Shackelford said in a press conference Monday. "This comes
in the wake of numerous reports to this agency that the quarters
will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines,
pay phones, or other coin-operated devices." The winning design
for the Texas quarter was submitted by Texas A&M student William
Doutrieux. "We believe the problem lies in a design flaw," said
Shackelford. "Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and
nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."
