Main Street

WOW! Seven Billion people! World population hit that mark last weekend. The lucky child was probably born in the Philippines. Mother Nature made us pretty good at increasing our species. Everybody loves babies and we make a lot of them. Seven billion at last count.
Our next step is to find another nice planet. We already have problems feeding everyone. Partly that’s because we are also getting short of water. We better take care of our planet because we have no place else to go.
Healthy!
At the urging of his doctor, Bill moved to Texas. After settling in, he met a neighbor who was also an older man.
“Say, is this really a healthy place?”
“It sure is,” the man replied. “When I first arrived here I couldn’t say one word. I had hardly any hair on my head. I didn’t have the strength to walk across a room and I had to be lifted out of bed.”
“That’s wonderful!” said Bill. “How long have you been here?”
“I was born here.”
Marital fidelity
Two guys are talking about their boss’s upcoming wedding. One says, “It’s ridiculous, he’s rich, but he’s 93 years old, and she’s just 26! What kind of a wedding is that?”
The other says, “Well, we have a name for it in my family.”
“What do you call it?”
“We call it a football wedding.”
The first asks, “What’s a football wedding?”
The other says, “She’s waiting for him to kick off!”

Offhand thoughts
I planted some birdseed. A bird came up. Now I don’t know what to feed it.
I had amnesia once—or twice.
I went to San Francisco. I found someone’s heart. Now what?
Protons have mass? I didn’t even know they were Catholic.
All I ask is a chance to prove that money can’t make me happy.
If the world were a logical place, men would ride horses sidesaddle.
Set me right
What is a “free” gift? Aren’t all gifts free?
They told me I was gullible … and I believed them.
Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he’ll never be able to merge his car onto a freeway.
Two can live as cheaply as one, for half as long.
