Yesterday at the Hardware Ranch elk festival, I made up a joke I thought was quite cleaver.  We always show off our tanned animal pelts and one happens to be a skunk skin.  Of course most of the kids don’t want much to do with that one.  Anyway quite awhile ago I was reading about how serious trappers skin and take care of skunks….you see I’ve never skinned one and they are not on my radar to do so any time soon.  The read I was looking at said that the better skinners have learned to hold the animals under water while they skin them out.  That way the odor doesn’t get so bad as if they were not under water.

My joke:

Ya, I understand you have to skin them under water.

I’ve not skinned one yet.

I can’t hold my breath long enough to get the job done.


Sorry folks.

Today it’s an every day thing to see people (even I do it) looking down into their little phone screen reading all about what “so and so” is having for breakfast, or someone else is experiencing severe pain or lover rejection. And so, when I saw this I was very much amused!
Also, please take note of the “dog” in the introduction….AND by the way, The “F” bomb word is used a couple of times in here, so if you don’t like that word, you might want to pass on seeing this. You have been warned!

Lexophile is a word used to describe those that love using words in rather unique ways, such as “you can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”, or “to write with a broken pencil is pointless.”

A competition is held every year to see who can come up with the best one. This year’s winning submission is posted at the very end.

1. When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.

2. A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.

3. When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

4. The batteries were given out free of charge.

5. A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.

6. A will is a dead giveaway.

7. With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

8. A boiled egg is hard to beat.

9. When you’ve seen one shopping Center you’ve seen a mall.

10. Police were called to a day care Center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.

11. Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.

12. A bicycle can’t stand alone; it is two tired.

13. When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.

14. The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.

15. He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

16. When she saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she’d dye.

17. Acupuncture is a jab well done. That’s the point of it.

And the cream of the wretched crop:

18. Those who get too big for their pants will be exposed in the end.

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn’t stop for directions.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played ‘Amazing Grace,’ the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothin’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.”

Apparently, I’m still lost… It’s a man thing.
