911

Two hunters are in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing. His eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his cell phone and frantically calls 911. He gasps: “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator says: “Calm down. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: “OK, now what?”

Good Customer Service

An old woman is upset at her husband’s funeral. “You have him in a brown suit and I wanted him in a blue suit”, she says to the mortician. The mortician says, “We’ll take care of it, Ma’am”, and yells back, “Yo, Ed! Switch the heads on 2 and 4!”


A German Shepherd, A Doberman and A Cat Died …

In heaven all 3 faced God, who wanted to know what they believed in. The German Shepherd said, “I believe in discipline, training and loyalty to my master.” “Good!”, said God. “Sit at my right side. Doberman, what do you believe in?” The Doberman answered, “I believe in love, care and protection of my master.” God said, “Good! You may sit at my left.” Then God looked at the cat and asked, “And what do you believe in?’ The cat replied, “ I believe you are sitting in my seat.”
