A man is driving along the highway in his convertible ...

... and he's got eight penguins in the back seat of his car. A police officer sees the car, and pulls him over, siren and lights in full force. When the officer approaches, the driver very politely asks the officer what the trouble is.

The officer says, sternly, "Well, you've got eight penguins in the back seat!"

"Yes, officer, I do," replies the man.

"Well," says the officer, "you take those penguins to the zoo right now!"

"Yes sir, right away, sir," says the man, and he drives away.

The next day, the same officer sees the same car with the same driver, with the same eight penguins in the back seat. Only this time, the penguins are all wearing sunglasses.

The enraged police officer pulls the driver over and can't wait to arrest the man.  The officer says, even more sternly than the previous day, "I thought I told you yesterday to take those penguins to the ZOO!"

"Well, I did," said the man, "and today we're going to the beach!"

Memo from Santa Claus:

I regret to inform you that, effective immediately, I will no longer be able to serve Southern United States on Christmas Eve. Due to the overwhelming current population of the earth, my contract was renegotiated by North American Fairies and Elves Local 209.

I now serve only certain areas of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan. As part of the new and better contract I also get longer breaks for milk and cookies so keep that in mind. However, I'm certain that your children will be in good hands with your local replacement who happens to be my third cousin, Bubba Claus.

His side of the family is from the South Pole. He shares my goal of delivering toys to all the good boys and girls; however, there are a few differences between us. Differences such as:

  1. There is no danger of a Grinch stealing your presents from Bubba Claus. He has a gun rack on his sleigh and a bumper sticker that reads: "These toys insured by Smith and Wesson."
  2. Instead of milk and cookies, Bubba Claus prefers that children leave an RC cola and pork rinds [or a moon pie] on the fireplace. And Bubba doesn't smoke a pipe. He dips a little snuff though, so please have an empty spit can handy.
  3. Bubba Claus' sleigh is pulled by floppy-eared, flyin' coon dogs instead of reindeer. I made the mistake of loaning him a couple of my reindeer one time, and Blitzen's head now overlooks Bubba's fireplace.
  4. You won't hear "On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen ..." when Bubba Claus arrives. Instead, you'll hear, "On Earnhardt, on Wallace, on Martin and Labonte. On Rudd, on Jarrett, on Elliott and Petty."
  5. "Ho, ho, ho!" has been replaced by "Yee Haw!" And you also are likely to hear Bubba's elves respond, "I her'd dat!"
  6. As required by Southern highway laws, Bubba Claus' sleigh does have a Yosemite Sam safety triangle on the back with the words "Back Off." The last I heard it also had other decorations on the sleigh back as well. One is Ford or Chevy logo with lights that race through the letters and the other is a caricature of me (Santa Claus) going wee wee on the Tooth Fairy.
  7. The usual Christmas movie classics such as "Miracle on 34th Street" and "It's a Wonderful Life" will not be shown in your negotiated viewing area. Instead, you'll see "Boss Hogg Saves Christmas" and "Smokey and the Bandit IV" featuring Burt Reynolds as Bubba Claus and dozens of state patrol cars crashing into each other.
  8. Bubba Claus doesn't wear a belt. If I were you, I'd make sure you, the wife, and the kids turn the other way when he bends over to put presents under the tree.
  9. And finally, lovely Christmas songs have been sung about me like "Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer" and Bing Crosby's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." This year songs about Bubba Claus will be played on all the AM radio stations in the South. Those song title will be Mark Chesnutt's "Bubba Claus Shot the Jukebox"; Cledus T. Judd's "All I Want for Christmas Is My Woman and a Six Pack", and Hank Williams Jr.'s "If You Don't Like Bubba Claus, You can Shove It."

Sincerely Yours, Santa Claus (member of North American Fairies and Elves Local 209)

The poinsettia is said to resemble the star of Bethlehem.

It was named after Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, who served in the early 1800's as the U.S. ambassador to Mexico. He took the flower home with him to South Carolina where it flourished.

The people of Mexico call the poinsettia the 'flower of the holy night', which is explained in the following legend.

The early missionaries in Mexico established the custom of bringing flowers to the church at Christmas. There was once a small boy of a poor family who stood outside the church with tears in his eyes as he saw people hurrying by with arms full of beautiful flowers. He so much wanted to offer a gift to the infant in the crib that he knelt in the dirt to pray.

Seeing him, a priest asked why he was so sad. When the boy said he had no money to buy flowers, the priest told him to pick a plant that was growing beside the road.

According to the legend, as the boy held the plant in his hands the green leaves turned dazzling red. His prayer had been answered. He took the plant with him and laid it at the feet of the Christ child. It was the most beautiful flower of all.

Ever since, the poinsettia has been associated with Christmas. It is a reminder of the Savior's birth and the devotion of a small boy.

An older gentleman had an appointment to see the urologist ...

... who shared an office with several other doctors.

The waiting room was filled with patients. As he approached the receptionist desk he noticed that the receptionist was a large unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo wrestler. He gave her his name.

In a very loud voice, the receptionist said, "yes, I have your name here; you want to see the doctor about impotence, right?"

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at the very embarrassed man. He recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied, "No, I've come to inquire about a sex change operation. But I don't want the same doctor that did yours."

Don't mess with old folks !!
