A first grade class comes in from recess.
The teacher asks Alice: "What did you do at recess?"
Alice says, "I played in the sand box."
The teacher says, "That's good. Go to the blackboard, and if you can write 'sand' correctly, I'll give you a fresh-baked cookie."
She does and gets a cookie.
The teacher asks Billy what he did at recess.
Billy says, "I played with Alice in the sand box."
The teacher says, "Good. If you write 'box" correctly on the blackboard, I'll give you a fresh-baked cookie."
Billy does, and gets a cookie.
The teacher then asks Mustaffa Machmoud what he did at recess.
He says, "I tried to play with Alice and Billy, but they threw rocks at me."
The teacher says, "Threw rocks at you? That sounds like blatant racial discrimination. If you can go the blackboard and write 'blatant racial discrimination' I'll give you a cookie."

Walking through Chinatown in a foreign country, a tourist is fascinated with all the Chinese restaurants, shops, signs and banners. He turns a corner and sees a building with the sign, "Hans Olaffsen's Laundry."
"Hans Olaffsen?", he muses. "How the heck does that fit in here?"
So he walks into the shop and sees an old Chinese gentleman behind the counter.
The tourist asks, "How did this place get a name like "Hans Olaffsen's Laundry?"

A farmer was in a tea-stall bragging about his cow.
"That animal saved my life twice," he said. "Once, I fell into the river and he jumped in and dragged me to the bank. Another time my house caught on fire and he ran in and saved me, the wife and kids."
The farmer passed around a picture of the miraculous animal. One of the guys noticed the cow was missing a leg.
"Which accident did the cow lose its leg in?" he asked.
"Neither. An animal like that you don't eat all at once!"

Men are like:
Placemats - they only show up when there's food on the table.
Mascara - they usually run at the first sign of emotion.
Bike helmets - they're good in emergencies but usually just look silly.
Government bonds - they take so long to mature.
Copiers - you need them for reproduction but that's about it.
Lava lamps - fun to look at but not all that bright.
Bank accounts - without a lot of money they don't generate a lot of interest.
High heels - they're easy to walk on once you get the hang of it.
Mini skirts - if you're not careful they'll creep up your legs.
Handguns - keep one around long enough and your going to want to shoot it.
