    1. Two vultures board an airplane, each carrying two dead raccoons.

    The stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

    2. Two boll weevils grew up in South Carolina. One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much. The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.

    3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when they lit a fire in the craft, it sank proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it, too.

    4. A three legged dog walks into a saloon in the Old West. He slides up to the bar and announces: "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw."

    5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? He wanted to transcend dental medication.

    6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."

    7. A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Amal."

    The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Amal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal."

    8. These friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So,

    the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that: Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

    9. We all know who Gandhi was, right? He was a spiritual man who fasted regularly. Some may not realize that fasting, when practiced regularly and for extended periods, leads not only to weight loss, but can also cause bad breath.

    No matter, his interests were higher. This great leader hardly ever wore shoes. One might say he was ... a super-calloused fragile mystic plagued with halitosis.

    10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to friends, in the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh, and of course, no pun in ten did.

    Question:
    If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea does that mean one person enjoys it?

    PUNAPPRECIATED!

    A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her name plate that her name is Patricia Whack.
    "Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."

    Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.
    Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.

    The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.

    Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral."

    She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"

    (you're gonna love this)

    The bank manager looks back at her and says...

    "It's a knickknack, Patty Whack.
    Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

    Better share this one with your students while they have a chance of knowing who the Rolling Stones are!

    Pun of the day:
    I can't explain, but when I asked the librarian if she had any information about Pete Townsend, Roger Daltrey and John Entwhistle she looked puzzled, and said WHO???

    It was then I realized she was not from my generation so I left, not going back. I won't get fooled again!!

    OK, the following link gives excellent examples of how instructions that seem literal can go very wrong in the execution of those instructions. Fortunately, while being educational, we have the chance to be very entertained. Enjoy, please!

    Awesome spider web - I don't think I want to meet the spider that built it.
    [​IMG]

    Math jokes and puns:

    1. Why was the fraction apprehensive about marrying the decimal?

    Because he would have to convert.

    2. Why do plants hate math?

    It gives them square roots.

    3. Why did the student get upset when his teacher called him average?

    It was a mean thing to say!

    4. Why was the math book depressed?

    It had a lot of problems.

    5. Why is the obtuse triangle always so frustrated?

    Because it is never right.

    6. Why can you never trust a math teacher holding graphing paper?

    They must be plotting something.

    7. Why was the equal sign so humble?

    Because she knew she wasn’t greater than or less than anyone else.

    8. What do you call the number 7 and the number 3 when they go out on a date?

    The odd couple (but 7 is in her prime).

    9. What do you call a number that can’t stay in one place?

    A Roamin’ numeral.

    10. Did you hear the one about the statistician?

    Probably.

    11. What do you call dudes who love math?

    Algebros.

    12. I’ll do algebra, I’ll do trig. I’ll even do statistics.

    But graphing is where I draw the line!

    13. Why should you never talk to Pi?

    Because she’ll go on and on and on forever.

    14. Why are parallel lines so tragic if they have so much in common?

    It’s a shame they’ll never meet.

    15. Are monsters good at math?

    Not unless you Count Dracula.

    16. Did you hear about the mathematician who is afraid of negative numbers?

    They’d stop at nothing to avoid them.

    17. How do you stay warm in any room?

    Just huddle in the corner, where it’s always 90 degrees.

    18. Why is six afraid of seven?

    Because seven eight ( "ate") nine!

    19. Why DID seven eat nine?

    Because you’re supposed to eat 3 squared meals a day!

    20. Why does nobody talk to circles?

    Because there is no point.

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

    These are “Orb Weaver” spiders. They are large (about 1/2” to 3/4” body length), and they usually appear in late summer and early fall. Right about now, in other words. This is their time of year to build webs and find mates.

    They are 99% HARMLESS TO HUMANS. THEIR VENOM IS NON-TOXIC TO US. THEY ARE DOCILE AND NON-AGGRESSIVE. THEY ALMOST NEVER, EVER EVEN BITE!!!!

    I know they’re scary looking, but they are our allies, not enemies. They devour insect pests that plague us. Also, they're mostly active at night - they rest in their webs during the day.

    For some reason, the paranoia about these beautiful creatures has reached a fever pitch on my social media this year. If you see one, CHILL OUT. It’s not interested in you. If you walk into it’s web accidentally, don’t panic. Apologize and move on.

    So be kind. Be informed. Let them do their thing

    Amorphophallus Titanum, one of the largest flower in the world. It blooms once every 7-10 years only for 4 days!

    I know this was posted before, but ...

    I recently learned the difference between fruit and fruit preserves. It was jarring.
