With all the violence and depravity in the news now, isn’t it time for a little levity ????

I had a knock at my door earlier, it was a policeman…
“Mr Cook?”
“Yes,” I replied.
“I’m afraid your dog has just been reported to have chased someone on a bike.”
I said, “That’s a crock ! – my dog doesn’t have a bike!”

This past year saw the coldest winter since records began

for countries in the northern hemisphere.

It’s been so cold that numerous politicians were actually

 seen with their hands in their own pockets.

Diet Day 1: Just removed all the fattening food from my house, it was delicious.

If con is the opposite of pro, it must mean Congress is the opposite of progress?

Why was the jazz movie rated R?
Too much sax and violins.

My friend boasted he had the body of a Greek god.

I had to explain to him where Buddha actually came from.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

Not a creature was stirring…, except one little gray mouse

The dog sound asleep on a chair by the fire

Soon to be joined by the cat, as she chose to retire

Humans all sleeping tucked tight in their beds

Dreams about Christmas danced ’round in their heads

He scouted the house from his spot by the broom

Making sure that all was safe in the warm, quiet room

He scampered ‘cross the room, feeling happy and free

Around the furniture and he ran up the tree

Where from limb to limb popcorn garlands were strung

And from it, well spaced, small cookies were hung

Up the tree, to a limb, ever higher he scampered

Crunching and munching and feeling well pampered

Then from a room up above he heard a noise

And thought it might be one of the boys

Sneaking down the stairs quiet and quick

Hoping to catch a brief glimpse of St. Nick

Down from the tree and across the room

He scampered to his hiding place behind the broom

All was quiet as he went back to his hole

and dropped the armful of popcorn safe in his bowl

He crawled into the matchbox and into his bed

Pulling the covers up over his head

Then later that night, though he didn’t have proof

He thought he heard sleigh bells up high on the roof

Next morning what a wonderful sight did he see

But piles of presents under the tree

And a box full of popcorn and cookies and cheese

The little mouse smiled as big as you please

For Santa had come to the little green house

And left a bit of Christmas for the little gray mouse.
