Day 1:
One day, Dopey went to the circus. They had some interesting side-shows.
Dopey paid $1 to see the Yellow-Brown Striped Bear and sure enough there, on display, was a bear with yellow and brown stripes on him.
Later he paid another $1 to see a monkey with two tails and sure enough, there in a cage, was a monkey with two tails.
Just before leaving he spent another $1 to see the Invisible Man. Behind the curtain was a chair and nothing more. He came back out and demanded his money back.
The manager asked, "Didn't you see the chair?"
"Yes" said Dopey, "But it was empty. There was no one sitting on it."
The manager replied, "Of course there was. You didn't see him cause he is invisible, and refused to refund the money.
Not having an answer, Dopey left.

Day 2:
The next day, Dopey returned because he felt he had been swindled. He found the Side-show Manager and said, "Look, I really believe there was no one in that chair and I want my money back !"
The manager replied, "What makes you think the Invisible Man wasn't sitting in that chair?"
Dopey replied, "Because when I was in the room, I asked if anyone was there and no one answered."
"Of course not.", said the manager, "He is deaf."
"But", said Dopey, "he should have said something when he saw me come into the room."
"He didn't know you were there, he's blind!" said the manager who further added, "Be glad I didn't charge you for the extras!"

One day, 3 birds went to see Dr. Vic, their local vet.
After examining bird no. 1, the doctor said, "You are in fine shape, just need a little rest. By evening, you'll be flyin' off into the sunset". And early in the evening, the great eagle was seen flying westerly among the trees.
When bird no. 2's medical was completed, the doctor advised, "You're a bit run down. Rest for a day and a half' then you'll the fine and ready to fly again soon". Two days later, someone spotted the owl on a midnight flight among the trees.
After finishing the physical exam of bird no. 3, the good old doc said, "You need lots of rest, you're pretty much exhausted. Better rest up at least a week and then you'll be ready to fly among others of your kind".
The 3rd bird replied' "Doubt that !!"
The Doc asked, "Why not ?"
The 3rd bird, "Cause I'm an ostrich."
