A woman took a package to the post office to mail and was told it would cost $2.40 for fast deliv-ery or $1.30 for slower service.

"There is no hurry," she told the clerk, "just so the package is delivered within my lifetime."

The postmaster glanced at her and said, "That will be $2.40, please."

School/Homework Excuses ...

* I didn't do my history homework because I don't believe in dwelling on the past.

* I didn't want the other kids in the class to look bad.

* A sudden gust of wind blew my homework out of my hand and I never saw it again.

* I'm not at liberty to say why.

* I wanted to frame the detention letter you're about to give me.

* My agent won't allow me to publish my homework until the movie deal is finalized.

* I was abducted by green-skinned, three-eyed, pig-snouted space aliens, and they incinerated my homework with their death rays.

* I felt it wasn't challenging enough.

* My parents were sick and unable to do my homework last night. Don't worry, they have been suitably punished.

* I spent the night at a rally supporting higher pay for our hard-working teachers.

There once was a man who owned a sausage factory, and he was showing his arrogant preppy son around his factory.

Try as he might to impress his snobbish son, his son would just sneer.

They approached the heart of the factory, where the father thought, "This should impress him!"

He showed his son a machine and said "Son, this is the heart of the factory. With this machine here we can put in a pig, and out come sausages.

The prudish son, unimpressed, said "Yes, but do you have a machine where you can put in a sausage and out comes a pig?"

The father, furious, thought and said, "Yes son, we call it your mother."

Maurice is a successful stockbroker and just before he leaves his office for the day, he calls over one of his team. "As you know, Peter, tomorrow is the Jewish New Year and instead of coming in to work, I’ll be praying in my usual synagogue just around the corner to the office. But in my absence I need someone to watch over an important share for me. Will you do it for me?"

"Of course Maurice," replies Peter. "What’s the share and what should I be looking out fo


"Thank you," says Maurice. "I have 50,000 Royal Bank of Scotland shares which have just closed at 46.9p. If they go to 51p tomorrow, please sell all of them for me. If need be, you can always come in to the synagogue’s foyer and ask for me."

First thing next morning, the FTSE100 Index opens 120 points up and RBS shares quickly move to 55p. Peter doesn’t know what to do so he goes to the synagogue to ask Maurice for advice. When Maurice joins him outside, Peter says, "Sorry to disturb you but the FTSE has opened 120 points up and RBS shares opened at 55p.

The rumour is that RBS is on its way up to 65p. Do you want me to sell them now at 55p?"

Maurice replies, "No, not at 55p. RBS shares are already trading at 58p in the synagogue.

Betty wakes up to a knock on her door. It’s 7am and it’s Mothers Day.

Then Betty’s two teenage children, Suzy and Paul, walk into her room with smiles on their faces and say to her, "Happy Mothers Day, mum.

Please don’t get up. As our treat to you, we want you to stay in bed and we’ll make breakfast."

Soon the smell of fried eggs and bacon wafts up into her room and Betty is now really looking forward to her breakfast in bed. But after 15 minutes have gone by and there is still no breakfast, Betty gets up and goes downstairs to investigate.

And there is Suzy and Paul sitting at the kitchen table finishing off their breakfast. And there’s nothing cooking. Betty looks at them both and says, "Well, what's with the breakfast?"

"We’ve already told you," replies Suzy. "It’s our surprise for Mothers Day. We decided to make our own breakfast this morning."

An old man was sitting on his porch, when a young man walked up with a pad and pencil in his hand.

"What are you selling, young man?" he asked.

"I'm not selling anything, sir," the young man replied. "I'm the census taker."

"A what?" the man asked.

"A census taker. We are trying to find out how many people are in the United States."

"Well," the man answered, "you're wasting your time with me; I have no idea."
