Grandmas and Grandpas
Grandmas and Grandpas are everything nice.
Like presents and candy and raspberry ice.
And chocolate fudge sundaes, with cherries on top.
And popcorn and peanuts and grape soda pop.
In winter or summer, in rain or in sun,
Grandmas and Grandpas are wonderful fun!

        A duck walks into a convenient store and walks up the counter. The duck asks, "Got any grapes?" "No," said the puzzled store clerk. The duck smiles and walks out the door. A little while later the duck returns and asks, "Got any grapes?" The clerk replies, "No! Like I already told you 15 minutes ago, I don't have any grapes!" The duck smiles and walks out. A little while later the duck returns and again asks "Got any grapes?" The irate clerk yells, "No! We didn't have any, we don't have any, and were not going to have any. If you come back in here again I'll nail your webbed feet to the floor!" The duck smiles and walks out. Later the duck returns and asks the clerk "Got any nails?" The clerk says "NO!" The duck replies, "Good! Got any grapes?" -- from Dave Diehl, 6/19/1996

        Two vultures were in the desert eating a dead clown. The first vulture asks the second vulture: "Does this taste funny to you?" -- from Ken, 7/18/1996
 

        One fine day a chicken walked into a library and said BUCK (book), so the librarian gave the chicken a book. The next day the same chicken came back to the library and said BUCK BUCK, so the librarian gave him two books. The next day the same chicken came back to the library and said BUCK BUCK BUCK, so again the librarian gave him three books, but this time the librarian decided to follow him to see what a chicken wanted with three books. As he saw the chicken come to a stop at the edge of a pond, he saw the chicken pass all the books to a frog who while he was looking at them was saying, REDDIT,REDDIT, REDDIT -- from BJ BRAKE AND ROCKY MUISE, 11/11/1996

        A magician was performing on a cruise ship and each night while performing, his pet parrot kept saying "It's up his sleeve, it's in his pocket, it's in his shoe, it's in his pants," etc. and the magician was loosing his patience. One night while performing his tricks the ships boilers blew and the ship sank.  The lucky magician was able to grab onto a ship's table and float on the sea for a few days. The parrot in the mean time seemed puzzled and was looked quizzically at the magician for a few days while drifting. On the 4th day the parrots looked at his master and said, "I give up... what did you do with the ship?" -- from terence hopman, 11/27/1996

        Did you ever notice that when ducks migrate in their Vee formation, one side of the line is longer than the other? Know why that is? There's more ducks in it. -- from Charley, 12/8/1996
