Bob stood over his tee sot for what seemed an eternity. He waggled, looked up, looked down, waggled again, but didn't start his back swing. Finally his exasperated partner asked, "what the hell is taking so long?" "My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse," Bob explained. "I want to make a perfect shot." "Good lord!" his companion exclaimed. "You don't have a snowball's chance in hell of hitting her from here."

How was copper wire invented? -- A scotsman and a jew fought over a penny.
I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go(*), and I try not to visit there too often.
I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not!
*) i begs to differ.
Doubt may be an uncomfortable condition. But surety is ridiculous.

A teacher sees a lad entering the classroom – his hands were dirty.
She stopped him and said, "John, please wash your hands. My goodness, what would you say if I came into the room with hands like that?"
Smiling the boy replied, "I think I’d be too polite to mention it."
A wise man once said.... go ask a woman!
One sunday morning, Joe notices his neighbor digging a hole in his garden.
"What's that hole for, Jack?" he asks.
"My canary is dead and i'm burying him" Jack replies.
"But isn't this rather large a hole for such a small bird?"
"Yes, it is, indeed." Jack replies and looks straight at Joe. "But he's stuck inside your goddamned cat."
"What did your mother do yesterday morning. Vicky?"
"She done her shopping, ma’am."
"Done her shopping, Vicky? Where’s your grammar?"
"She done her shopping as well, ma’am."
Lying on his deathbed, the wealthy Mr. Sams was instructing his attorney on last-minute changes in his will: "I wish to leave everything I own, all stocks, bonds property, art, and money, to my wife. However, there is one stipulation."
"And that is?”"
"In order to inherit, she must marry within six months of my death."
The lawyer seemed puzzled. "Why make such an unusual request?"
Mr. Sams answered, "Because I want someone to be sorry I died."
Policeman: "Did you get the license number of the car that knocked you down?"
Pedestrian: "No, but I know who it was. My mother-in-law!"
Policeman: "How can you be so certain?"
Pedestrian: "I’d recognize that laugh anywhere!"
Facing the worst --
until laughter burst.
-- Samuel Beckett (1906-1989)

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
