Today's Chuckles Feeding The Baby
The first-time father was taking a turn at feeding the baby some strained peas.
Naturally, there were traces of the food everywhere, especially on the infant.
His wife walked in, looked at the infant, then at her husband staring into space, and said, "What in the world are you doing?"
He replied, "I'm waiting for the first coat to dry, so I can put on another."Taco Order
My daughter went to a local fast food taco joint and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg.
"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer. "
