  • You can't sleep unless you hear lots of heavy breathing in your bedroom
  • The emergency number on your speed dialler is for the dog's veterinarian.
  • When someone taps you on the shoulder, you tell them firmly, "Off!", then "Down!".

My husband works as a service technician for a large exterminating company

One of the rules of the company is that he has to confirm each appointment by phone the night before his service call to that household.

One evening he made such a call, and when a man answered the phone, he said, "Hi, this is Gary from A to Z Pest Control Company. Your wife phoned us."

There was a long silence, and then my husband heard the man on the other end say, "Honey, it's for you....someone wants to talk to you about your relatives."

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day.

"In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive.

In some languages though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative."

"However," he pointed out, "there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."

A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah. Right."

Blood nose, two black eyes, scratches, clothes torn and muddied.

He blubbered out the story. “Well, you know Mr. Sodberry, the vice principal?”


“Well, his wife works in the records office, and she happened to come across the records of our births.”


“Well, you know how you called my sisters Jasmine, Rose and Violet?”
