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.

2/5 - Happy Tax day to you...

Monday, February 05, 2007

I’ve got a big test tomorrow. Not only in Biology, but at the
state tax commission. After 13 months of letters and pleadings
with the IRS, they finally took pity on my dad’s estate, and took
off a lot of penalties for the 5 years of taxes he didn’t pay
before he died. Yes, it was a huge mess. So, the IRS is done, but
now we have to plead our case to the state tax commission. There’s
a big hearing tomorrow. Ok, our tax guy says it’s just a
formality, but maybe I ought to wear a tie...

Anyway, with that and my first biology test tomorrow, that makes
for a big day ‘eh?

Oh, and happy birthday dad...

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

p.s. And how was your super bowl? I loved the first play of the
game, and gave up by half time. I’m sure the Bears’ quarterback
will do better next year, once he gets out of high school. What,
is he 17? He sure looks like it.


Reader Comment Section;

Why not let your mom write the funnies for awhile? We all
understand how busy life gets and yours definately is full right
now. She could tell us about you growing up, etc... plus she could
keep us informed about the family too.. Jokes are easy to find and
send out.. OR Drop it down to Mon, Weds, Fri and let different
people write up a column and send it to you and bingo.. you have
that nights edition?

[hmm... very intriguing. I did forward your email to my #1 mom,
but, no reply yet. Maybe she’s cook’n up something.]


David and Bernice had just given their teenage daughter family-car
privileges. One night she returned home very late from a party.
The next morning her father went out to the driveway to her the
newspaper and came back into the house frowning. At 11:30 am the
girl sleepily walked into the kitchen, and her father asked her,
“Sweetheart, what time did you get in last night?” “Not too late,
Dad.” she replied nervously. Dead-panned, her father said, “Then
precious one, I’ll have to talk with the paperboy about putting my
paper under the front tire of the car.”

A woman was at home with her children when the telephone rang. In
going to answer it, she tripped on a rug, grabbed for something to
hold on to and seized the telephone table. It fell over with a
crash, jarring the receiver off the hook. As it fell, it hit the
family dog, which leaped up, howling and barking. The woman's
three-year-old son, startled by this noise, broke into loud
screams. The woman mumbled some colorful words. She finally
managed to pick up the receiver and lift it to her ear, just in
time to hear her husband's voice on the other end say, "Nobody's
said hello yet, but it certainly sounds as if I have the right
