Quote for the Day
"Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in about 12 minutes. Half- Times take 12 minutes. This is not a coincidence."
- Erma Bombeck
Jokes for the Day
The checkout clerk at the supermarket was unusually cheerful even though it was near closing time. “You must have picked up a ton of groceries today,” a customer said to the checker. “How can you stay so pleasant?”
“We can all count our blessings,” the clerk replied. “The hardest part of this job is the turkeys and the watermelons. I am just thankful that Thanksgiving doesn't come in July.”
