A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!


1. Don't change horses
until they stop running.

2. Strike while the
bug is close.

3. It's always darkest before
Daylight Saving Time.

4. Never underestimate the power of
termites.

5. You can lead a horse to water but
How?

6. Don't bite the hand that
looks dirty.

7. No news is
impossible

8. A miss is as good as a
Mr.

9. You can't teach an old dog new
Math

10. If you lie down with dogs, you'll
stink in the morning.

11. Love all, trust
Me.

12. The pen is mightier than the
pigs.

13. An idle mind is
the best way to relax.

14. Where there's smoke there's
pollution.

15. Happy the bride who
gets all the presents.

16. A penny saved is
not much.

17. Two's company, three's
the Musketeers.

18. Don't put off till tomorrow what
you put on to go to bed.

19. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and
You have to blow your nose.

20. There are none so blind as
Stevie Wonder.

21. Children should be seen and not
spanked or grounded.

22. If at first you don't succeed
get new batteries.

23. You get out of something only what you
See in the picture on the box

24. When the blind lead the blind
get out of the way.

25. A bird in the hand
is going to poop on you.


And the WINNER and last one!



26. Better late than
Pregnant

At least the iPad is somewhat easy to clean!

We had a power outage last week and my PC, TV and games console shut down immediately, so I had to talk to my family for a few hours.

They seem like nice people.

My girlfriend hates it when I sneak up on her. Well, according to her lawyer, she also hates it when I call her my girlfriend.

Thieves broke into the local movie theater and stole $240.
They took a bag of popcorn and a large drink.

That reminds me, we were robbed last week. They took my wife's credit card. I haven't reported it yet. So far they're spending less than she did.

I've just made the best recipe for tofu ever!

Simply brush generously with extra virgin olive oil before lightly tossing it in the bin.

Little Bruce and Beryl are only 10 years old,
But they know they are in love.
One day they decide that they want to get married,
So Bruce goes to Beryl's father to ask him for her hand.

Bruce bravely walks up to him and says,
"Mr. Smith, me and Beryl are in love
And I want to ask you for her hand in marriage."

Thinking that this was just the cutest thing,
Mr. Smith replies,
"Well Bruce, you are only 10..
Where will you two live?"

Without even taking a moment to think about it,
Bruce replies,
"In Beryl's room.
It's bigger than mine
And we can both fit there nicely."
Mr. Smith says with a huge grin,
"Okay, then how will you live?
You're not old enough to get a job.
You'll need to support Beryl."

Again, Bruce instantly replies, "Our allowance,
Beryl makes five bucks a week
And I make 10 bucks a week.
That's about 60 bucks a month,
So that should do us just fine."

Mr. Smith is impressed
Bruce has put so much thought into this. "Well Bruce,
It seems like you have everything figured out.
I just have one more question.
What will you do if the two of you should have
Little children
of your own?"

Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says,
"Well, we've been lucky so far."

Mr. Smith no longer thinks the little shit is adorable.

Proof that Men have Better Friends

Friendship among Women:

A woman didn't come home one night. The next morning she told her husband she had slept over at a friend's house. The man called his wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it.

Friendship among Men:

A man didn't come home one night. The next morning he told his wife he had slept over at a friend's house. The woman called her husband's 10 best friends. Eight confirmed he had slept over, and two said he was still there.

This is so sad

As a guitarist, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played ‘Amazing Grace,’ the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my guitar and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothin’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.”

Apparently, I’m still lost…
