Relief

There are few situations in life which bring as much relief as when the police car behind you, with its lights flashing and siren on, pulls out and passes you to chase someone in front of you.

Quarantine Blues

•May 5, 2020 • Leave a Comment

As we end month 2 of the lockdown, I’ve been thinking about Osama Bin Laden. He was stuck in his house with three wives for 5 years. I’m beginning to wonder if he called in those Navy Seals himself.

Remember wishing the weekend would last forever? Happy now?

What if they closed the grocery stores and we had to hunt for our food? I don’t even know where Little Debbie lives.

If they had just called it the “stay at home challenge” and posted it on Facebook, the virus would have been gone by now.

This would be a piss poor time to win the lottery. Where you going to go?

When we come out of this and I ask you where you want to go to eat, don’t give me an “I don’t know”. Geez: you’ve had months.

I was so bored last night, I called Jake from State Farm just to have someone to talk to. He asked me what I was wearing.

Ole Randy

Somewhat adultish but nothing really bad.

This farmer has about 200 hens, but no rooster and he wants chicks. So, he goes down the road to the next farmer and asks if he has a rooster. The other farmer says, "Yeah, I’ve got this great rooster, named Randy; he’ll service every chicken you’ve got. No problem."

Well, Randy the rooster is a lot of money, but the farmer decides he’d be worth it so he buys Randy. The farmer takes Randy home and sets him down in the barnyard, giving the rooster a pep talk, "Randy, I want you to pace yourself now. You’ve got a lot of chickens to service here and you cost me a lot of money. I’ll need you to do a good job. So, take your time and have some fun," the farmer said with a chuckle.

Randy seemed to understand, so the farmer points him towards the hen house and Randy takes off like a shot ~WHAM~ He nails every hen…THREE or FOUR times and the farmer is just shocked. Randy then runs out of the hen house and sees a flock of geese down by the lake ~WHAM~ He gets all the geese. Randy’s comes up to the pigpen: he services the pigs then the cows. Randy is jumping on every animal the farmer owns.

The farmer is distraught, worried that his expensive rooster won’t even last the day. Sure enough, the farmer goes to bed and wakes up the next day to find Randy dead as a doorknob in the middle of the yard. Buzzards are circling overhead.

The farmer, saddened by the loss of such a colorful animal, shakes his head and says, "Oh, Randy, I told you to pace yourself. I tried to get you to slow down, now look what you’ve done to yourself."

Randy opens one eye, nods towards the sky and says, "Shhh. They’re getting closer…"
