Editors Quote Book

“What we regret most are the chances we never took.”

— Frasier Crane

January Ponderings

  • When people see a cat’s litter box, they always ask, “Oh, have you got a cat?” Just once I’d like to say, “No, it’s for company!”
  • Did you ever notice that when you put the letters “THE” and “IRS” together it spells “Theirs”?
  • The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s REALLY in trouble.
  • The easiest way to find something around the house is to buy a replacement.
  • Employment application blanks always ask who is to be called in case of emergency. I think we should be able to write, “An ambulance!”

The Dead Horse

A young man named David bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up to David’s house and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”
David replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”
The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”
David said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”
The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”
David said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”
The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”
David said, “Sure I can, Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”
A month Later, the farmer met up with David and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”
David said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars a piece and made a profit of $2245.”
The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”
David said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.”
David is soon moving into the White House.
