Happy Friday and Happy December! With the holiday season upon us, it is only fitting to break out a couple of seasonal jokes.
The Young Man and the Tree
One day, a young man came home to discover that his wife had put up the Christmas decorations. There were bright lights around the outside of the house. There were large, red stockings hung by the chimney and a large green wreath on the door.
When he walked into the family room, he saw a beautiful, tall Christmas tree. However, he noticed that, despite all the other elaborate decorations around the house, the Christmas tree appeared to be untouched. He found this a bit puzzling, so he asked his s wife who coyly replied that she had indeed finished decorating the tree.
He looked again at the tree and carefully walked around only to affirm that there were no ornaments or lights on the tree. This time; however, he did notice that on just one branch there was hanging one single shotgun shell. Well this really made him wonder. He went back and asked his wife what the meaning of this strange tree was. She simply smiled and said, “Isn’t it obvious dear? Why what you are looking at is a cartridge in a bear tree!”
A Trip to the Dentist
A man goes to his dentist because he feels something wrong in his mouth. The dentist examines him and says, “It looks like that new upper plate I put in for you six months ago is already eroding. What have you been eating?”
The man replies, “Nothing that different. The only thing I can think of is that, about four months ago, my wife made some asparagus and put some stuff on it that was delicious . It was Hollandaise sauce. It was great. I asked her to start putting it on everything – meat, toast, fish, vegetables. I guess now I eat it on just about everything.”
“Well,” says the dentist, “there is the problem. You see Hollandaise sauce is made with lots of lemon juice, which is highly acidic and corrosive. That is what has eaten away your upper plate. But, never fear, I have a solution. I’ll make you a new plate, and this time I will use chrome.”
“Why chrome?” asks the patient.
And the dentist says, “It’s simple. Everyone knows that there’s no plates like chrome for the Hollandaise!”
