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.

4/9 - Anyone...? Anyone...?

Monday, April 09, 2007

I made the ultimate sacrifice tonight. After a dinner of burgers
on the grill (son #2 cooked ‘em!) and lots of goodies, we had a
quick family home evening lesson. Last week, just before Easter,
son #3 and #4 went to a Primary activity and made a family home
evening chart. It has stars on it with everyone’s names that you
can move to different responsibilities. I was conducting and had
the lesson tonight. Others were assigned for the opening song,
opening prayer, etc. etc. Tonight we talked about the Holy Ghost,
and how it helps you know right from wrong. After the lesson, son
#1 had the activity part. They wanted to watch a movie so my sweet
wife ran to the video store and got ‘Ferris Bueller's Day Off’ All
4 of my boys were rolling on the floor laughing and as my sweet
wife said, “taking notes”. Oh, wonderful. Anyway, I made the
ultimate sacrifice and tried to study for my test when the rest of
the family was watching the flick. I did get some good studying
in. But, we’ll know for sure in a couple of days.

Enjoy Today’s Jokes!

p.s. My sweet wife said she hadn’t read her emails since
Wednesday, and asked how many Chad Vader videos there were. (7)
She said she thought they were, “cute”, and as she left she said,
“that poor chad...” Oh, I guess.

p.p.s. Hey, have you ever done a 5K race before? How about for a
great cause? We’re all about brain tumor research here, so if
you’re on the east coast, (and even if you’re not...) check out

That was a bad idea


Tiring of the inconvenience of the drive from airport to country
cottage, a man equipped his small plane with pontoons so he could
land on the lake directly in front of his cottage. On his next
trip, he made his approach down the airport runway as usual.
Alarmed, his wife cried out, "Are you crazy? You can't land this
plane here without wheels!" The startled husband abruptly yanked
the nose up, narrowly averting certain disaster. Continuing, he
landed the plane on the lake without mishap. As he sat there,
visibly shaken he said to his wife, "I don't know what got into
me. That's the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life!" And
with that, he opened the door and stepped out, falling into the

Unfortunately, the only candidate who's as qualified as

On a visit to Boston, I noticed a parking meter with a paper sack
over it upon which was written: "Broken." A skeptical parking
officer removed the bag, inserted a quarter in the meter and
turned the dial. It worked perfectly. As the officer began to
write a parking ticket, the car's owner rushed out of a nearby
building. "What are you doing?" he yelled after a quick glance at
the meter. "There's plenty of time left!"
