Dads and Daughters

Two dads, Rob and John, were talking about their teenage daughters and the challenges of communicating with them.

Rob: She hardly talks to me. I hardly see her at home. She just stays in her room all day and all night. She comes out just to eat then goes back in. She locks her door, and I don’t really want to disturb her. I don’t know what to do. How often do you talk to your daughter?

John: We talk about ten times a day.

Rob: Wow! How do you get her to come out of her room?

John: Easy, I turn off the WiFi.

Don’t Speak

An old man is in a hospital bed attached to an oxygen tank. His wife comes to visit and asks the doctor how he is doing.

The doctor tells her that he is doing better and she could visit him but to limit the conversation because he is still very weak.

The wife enters the room and sits on his bed right next to him.
The man begins to try to say something, but his wife cuts him off.

“Honey, the doctor told me to tell you to try not to speak because you’re still weak.”

The man stills attempts to force out words, but nothing is coming out.

The wife says “ Honey, please don’t try to speak, you are weak, what are you trying to say even? Is it that you love me? If it’s that important write it down.”

His wife hands him a pen and a piece of paper.

She reads the note that he has written, and it says,

“Get up! You’re sitting on my oxygen tubes; I can’t breath.”

The price is too sheep

My village shop is a bit weird. They only accept farm animals.

So if I want a Daily Mail it costs a chicken.

If I want 2 pints of a milk and a loaf of bread it costs me a pig.

And if I want to buy a bag of frozen chips it’s a ram and a ewe.

I couldn’t afford that though.

The price is too sheep.

Stress Free

I have been having some health issues lately and so I saw my doctor. She said it’s all because of stress and she suggested that I take up running to beat the stress.

It’s really working. I’ve been running away from my nagging wife, my overbearing boss, and those pesky credit card collectors. I feel so stress free!
