How deep?

As of the other day more than 99 inches of snow had fallen locally and it’s only the middle of February. Eight feet of snow – it’s not a record but it seems like enough for one year. No wonder Florida attracts so many Michigan snow birds.


Check-up

One day after a man had his annual physical, the doctor came out and said, “You had a great check-up. Is there anything that you’d like to talk about or ask me?’

“Well,” said the guy, “I was thinking about getting a vasectomy.”

“That’s a pretty big decision,” the doctor replied. “Have you talked about it with your family?”

“Yeah, and they’re in favor, 15 to 2.


Not yet

With the help of a fertility specialist, a 65-year-old woman gives birth. All her relatives come to visit and meet the newest member of the family. When they ask to see the baby, the 65-year-old mother says, “Not yet.”

They sip their coffee, and a little later the visitors ask again to meet the baby and the mother says, “Not yet.”

Finally one of the relatives asks, “Well! When CAN we see the baby?”

The mother says, “When it cries.”

“Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?”

“I forgot where I put it.”
