A Brit, a Frenchman and a Russian were viewing a painting of Adam and Eve walking in the Garden of Eden.
"Look at their reserve, their calm," mused the Brit. "They must be British!"
"Nonsense," the Frenchman disagreed. "They're naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French!"
"It is obvious they are Russian," argued the Russian. "They have no clothes and no shelter, they have only an apple to eat, and they are being told this is paradise!"

The young mother skeptically examined a new educational toy.

The Doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said you got a heart murmur. Be careful."

Supposed to be true
I was taking a shower when my 2-year-old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so I ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that I had copies made and included one with each of our Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting I take a closer look. Puzzled, I stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to my son, I had captured my reflection in the mirror - wearing nothing but a camera!
"I see you were last employed by a psychiatrist," said the employer to the applicant. "Why did you leave?"
"Well," she replied, "I just couldn't win. If I was late to work, I was hostile. If I was early, I had an anxiety complex. If I was on time, I was compulsive."
"Sad news. Ted Mann, founder of Mann's Theaters, one of the biggest, largest movie chains in the country, died last week. Services will be Sunday at 12.15, 3.30, 6.45, and 9."

Bush and Cheney are having lunch at a diner near the White House. Cheney orders the "Heart-Healthy" salad. Bush leans over to the waitress and says "Honey, could I have a quickie?"
