Good Morning Campers,
Strange new trend at the office. People putting names on food in the company fridge. Today I had a tuna sandwich named Linda.
You come from dust, you will return to dust. That’s why I don’t dust. It could be someone I know.
Today, I noticed that the cover of my ironing board was wrinkled and I laughed at the irony. Then, I laughed again because of the word “irony”.
Chester and Earl are going hunting….
Chester says to Earl, “I’ll send my dog out to see if there are any
ducks out in the pond. If there aren’t many ducks out there, I’m not
So he sends the dog out to the pond. The dog comes back and barks twice.
Chester says, “Well I’m not going to go out. He only saw two ducks out there.”
Earl looks at Chester and skeptically says, “You’re going to take the
dog’s barks for the truth are you?”
Obviously Earl doesn’t believe it, so he goes to look for himself.
When he gets back he says, “I don’t believe it. There really are only
two ducks out there!
Where did you get that dog”?
Chester says, “Well, I got him from the breeder up the road. If you
want one, you can get one from him”.
So Earl goes to the breeder and says he wants a dog like the one his
friend Chester has. The breeder obliges and Earl brings the dog home,
tells it to go out and look for ducks.
Minutes later the dog returns with a stick in its mouth and starts
humping Earl’s leg.
Outraged, Earl takes the dog back to the breeder and says, “This dog
is a fraud. All he wants to do is play ‘fetch a stick!’ I want my
This concerned the breeder who asked Earl what the dog did.
So Earl tells him that when he sent the dog out to look for ducks, it
came back with a stick in its mouth and started humping his leg.
The relieved breeder says, “Earl, dogs can’t talk. He was trying to
tell you there are more fucking ducks out there than you can shake a
Reaching the end of a job interview, the human resources person asked the young programmer:
“And what starting salary were you looking for?”
The programmer said, “In the neighborhood of $75,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.”
The HR Person said, “Well, what would you say to a package of 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company Corvette leased every 2 years?”
The programmer sat up straight and said, “Wow!!! Are you kidding?”
The HR Person replied, “Certainly… but you started it.”
Whoever said “The customer is always right” has never worked with the public a day in their freaking life!
My favorite essential oil is bacon grease.
You cannot lose weight on a starvation diet. I went 30, 40 minutes… nothin’!
If you see someone buying candy, popcorn, and soda at the movies they are a drug dealer. There’s no other explanation for that type of income.
I must have an amazing butt, every time I walk away from someone I hear them whisper, “what an ass.”

I experienced the WORST customer service the other day at a store in town. I don’t want to mention the name of the store because I’m not sure how I’m going to proceed. Friday evening I bought something from this store. I paid cash for it. I took it home and found out it didn’t work. So yesterday, less than 24 hours later I took it back to the store and asked if I could get a refund. The girl in the store told me NO even though I still had the receipt. I asked if I could get a replacement instead then. Again this person told me “NO.” I asked to talk to a manager now as I’m really not happy and I explained that I had just bought the item, had got it home and it didn’t work. The manager just smiled and told me to my face that I was “OUT OF LUCK.” No refund. No FREE replacement. I’ll tell you what…I am NEVER buying another Lottery Ticket from there again.
Gather round kidlets and Impish will tell you the story of Stingy Jack and the history of the Jack O’Lanterns….
The Legend of “Stingy Jack”
People have been making jack-o’-lanterns at Halloween for centuries. The practice originated from an Irish myth about a man nicknamed “Stingy Jack.” According to the story, Stingy Jack invited the Devil to have a drink with him. True to his name, Stingy Jack didn’t want to pay for his drink, so he convinced the Devil to turn himself into a coin that Jack could use to buy their drinks. Once the Devil did so, Jack decided to keep the money and put it into his pocket next to a silver cross, which prevented the Devil from changing back into his original form.
Jack eventually freed the Devil, under the condition that he would not bother Jack for one year and that, should Jack die, he would not claim his soul. The next year, Jack again tricked the Devil into climbing into a tree to pick a piece of fruit. While he was up in the tree, Jack carved a sign of the cross into the tree’s bark so that the Devil could not come down until the Devil promised Jack not to bother him for ten more years.
Soon after, Jack died. As the legend goes, God would not allow such an unsavory figure into heaven. The Devil, upset by the trick Jack had played on him and keeping his word not to claim his soul, would not allow Jack into hell. He sent Jack off into the dark night with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put the coal into a carved-out turnip and has been roaming the Earth with ever since. The Irish began to refer to this ghostly figure as “Jack of the Lantern,” and then, simply “Jack O’Lantern.”
In Ireland and Scotland, people began to make their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by carving scary faces into turnips or potatoes and placing them into windows or near doors to frighten away Stingy Jack and other wandering evil spirits. In England, large beets are used. Immigrants from these countries brought the jack-o’-lantern tradition with them when they came to the United States. They soon found that pumpkins, a fruit native to America, make perfect jack-o’-lanterns.
I know it’s a couple of days past Halloween, but I hope you found that story as entertaining as I did.
Now, on to some other funny stories:
If you can’t fly with the big girls…stay off the broom.

Cheers to you all.
