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.

7/13 - Dirt Clog War

Thursday, July 13, 2006

Every once in awhile my family walks by Justin’s parent’s house,
and his mom is sitting on her porch talking with Justin. Tonight
she was doing just that. Son #4 was running up and down the street
playing with Justin’s nephew, so I stopped and said “Hey, how are
you guys?” “Great!” they said. “Hey,” his mom said, “Justin’s on
the phone and said I should pick something up and throw it at

I didn’t hesitate one bit... I jumped over the fence, rolled on
the ground and hid behind a tree, picked up a dirt clod, hucked it
at Justin’s mom and pegged her right above her left ear! “HA! I
yelled, got you first!!”

Ok, not really.

Justin’s mom is probably one of the nicest ladies I know. But I
did yell back and say, “Tell him I just threw a dirt clod at you!”

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

p.s. Can anyone tell me what album cover the above picture is from?

As a freshman ROTC cadet, I took part in my first Army field-
training exercise. After a long day of rock-climbing and
rappelling, my platoon settled down for our C-rations. Hungry, we
tore into our cardboard boxes, opening cans of "Chicken or Turkey,
Boned," "Cheese Spread, Cheddar" and "Candy, Chocolate, With
Nougat." Then we came upon a device wrapped in a small brown
envelope, labeled: "Stimulant, Interdental" -- a wooden toothpick.

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heal

I believe my young daughter wants a pair of glasses. I don't know
why she does. Perhaps glasses are now "cool" to have in school?
But though she sees just fine, she still says she needs glasses.
I took her to the eye doctor just to check it out though. She was
asked to read the bottom row of letters on the eye chart. She
said, "All right, I can see the 'O' and the 'P' and the 'T,' but
not the 'N' and the 'Z.'"
