What happens to a frog's car when it breaks down?

It gets toad away.

Can a kangaroo jump higher than the Empire State Building?

Of course! The Empire State Building can't jump.

A horse walks into a bar...

The bartender says, "Hey."

The horse replies, "Sure."

I can't take my dog to the park because the ducks keep trying to bite him.

I guess that's what I get for buying a pure bread dog.

At a celebrity party, Stevie Wonder meets golf champ Tiger Woods and mentions that he, too, is an excellent golfer.

Tiger is a bit skeptical that the blind musician can play golf well, but he's too polite to say anything.

"When I tee off, " the singer explains, "I have a guy call to me from the green. My sharp sense of hearing lets me aim."

Tiger is impressed, and Stevie suggests that they play a round. When Tiger agrees, Stevie asks, "How about if we play for $10,000 a hole?" Tiger insists he couldn't possibly play him for money because of his sight handicap.

But Stevie argues and badgers Tiger until Tiger finally relents. Stevie says, "You pick the place and I'll pick the time?"

Tiger says, "Fine. Pebble Beach."

Stevie replies, "Midnight!"

The two boys circled the property.  They examined the boarded windows.  Yes, they had seen the signs that warned "No Trespassing" but for 10 year olds, that did not mean a thing.  

"What do you think is in there?" Josh ask his buddy Hanson.

"Probably some old skeletons" Hanson replied with a smile.

"No way!" Josh responded.  "I am guessing some bags of stolen money are hidden in there."

Determined to enter this old building, the boys used their BB guns to loosen the boards.  Slowly the windows creaked open and the two boys climbed inside the dusty, cobwebbed room.

It was very dark inside.  The moved slowly, warning each other in whispers to stay very quiet.  Suddenly a screech erupted from a sleeping Owl and it flew in the direction of the boys.  Josh and Hanson ran back to the open windows and jumped down.  Hanson hit the ground at a run while Josh was caught on the spikes of an old fence.  He dangled there until Hanson realized his partner in crime wasn't with him.  Carefully he returned and helped lift Josh off the fence.

His new jeans were ripped and Josh had to think of a good story to explain the destruction to his mother.

The prompts will be here this month but are provided by Margaret Adamson, and her friend Sue Fulcher.

This week's prompts are phrases:

  • An arm and a leg


  • Barking up the wrong tree

BREAKING NEWS by Granny Annie

The members of the forestry service were task to remove the bark from a small group of trees.  They had the use of a barking drum to get the work done.  One of the workers wandered out of the designated area and they found he was barking up the wrong tree.  They had not choice but to cut down this tree.  The tree fell and a bundle bounced out.  The workers carefully opened the bundle and inside they found terrifying human remains of an arm and a leg.
