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.

12/13 - 2BZ or not 2BZ

Wednesday, December 13, 2006

Ok, so my dreams of staying home and enjoying the holiday are
slowing ebbing away. Last night it was the Intermountain Society
of Artists Christmas dinner for my sweet wife. (She’s so good,
when they saw her painting at the state fair, they gave her
membership.) Tonight was son #4’s holiday concert at the Utah
School for the blind. (There were more mentions of Hanukkah and
Kwanzaa than Christmas. I guess everyone is still trying to be PC,
but I digress.) Tomorrow is a concert for #1 and #2 sons, and the
next night is one for son #3. Then there is the ward Christmas
party, neighborhood party, Scout meetings, more Christmas
shopping, gingerbread houses at Grandmas, and the 20 year annual
tradition of caroling Christmas Eve.

I could be worse; at least we don’t have to spend the next two
weeks in the hospital with a sick kid!

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

Thanks for keeping your readers updated during your son's surgery
and recovery. I know you and your wife are so relieved to have the
surgery over. I'm so glad to hear your son is doing great and I'll
continue to remember him in prayer.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

An angry wife was complaining about her husband spending all his
free time in a bar, so one night he took her along with him.
"What'll you have?" he asked. "Oh, I don't know. The same as you I
suppose," she replied. So, the husband ordered a couple of Jack
Daniel's and threw his down in one shot. His wife watched him,
then took a sip from her glass and immediately spit it out. "Yuck,
that's TERRIBLE!" she spluttered. "I don't know how you can drink
this stuff!" "Well, there you go," cried the husband. "And you
think I'm out enjoying myself every night!"


The African chieftain was so religious that when he ascended to
power, he forbade the killing of animals. Not long thereafter, the
lion and cheetah population began to get out of hand, and,
starving in the wilds, they began feeding on humans. Before long,
even the antelope and zebra were so plentiful that they began
nibbling on natives. The terrified populace petitioned their
leader to rescind his edict, but he refused: thus, they had no
choice but to overthrow the chief. Not only was the revolt
successful, It was the first time in history that ... a reign was
called on account of game.


At the end of this message, you are asked a question. Answer it
immediately. Don't stop and think about it. Just say the first
thing that pops into your mind.

This is a fun "test"... AND kind of spooky at the same time! Give
it a try, then e-mail it around and you'll see how many people you
know fall into the same percentage as you. Be sure to put in the
subject line if you are among the 98% or the 2%. You'll understand
what that means after you finish taking the test".

Now, just follow the instructions as quickly as possible.

Do not go to the next calculation before you have finished the
previous one.

You do not ever need to write or remember the answers, just do it
using your mind. You'll be surprised.


How much is:

15 + 6

3 + 56

89 + 2

12 + 53

75 + 26

25 + 52

63 + 32

I know! Calculations are hard work, but it's nearly over. Come on,
one more!

123 + 5


Scroll further! To the bottom....

You just thought about a red hammer! didn't you?
