Joke 517

22 Aug


A man was walking down the street when he came across a body lying on the sidewalk.  He ran to a phone and called 911.

The operator asked him where he was and the man replied, “I’m on Sycamore Drive.”

“How do you spell that?” the operator asked.

“S-i-c-k…” the man began. “No, s-i-c-a….  No, s-i-k-a…oh heck, let me drag him over to Lake Street and I’ll call you back.”

    Funny one. Reminds me of a similar joke.

    A husband returns home after a round of golf with his usual foursome. He looks terrible.

    The wife says: “you look awful, what happened?”

    The husband replies: On the second hole, Fred dropped dead from a heart attack!”

    The wife says: “no wonder you look so bad. How distressing.”

    The husband says: “yeah, all day long it was hit the ball, drag Fred, hit the ball, drag Fred……….

    this one reminds me that laughter can be interrupted by perspective.
    I laughed. hard.
    my police officer husband simply replied, “great, 2 crime scenes.” 🙂

      You’re right! It is all about perspective. Thanks for the smile 🙂

      I think that’s the sign of someone’s who’s been in the job too long!

    When we were little,if we fell over when my granny was about, she would say: “Come over her and I will pick you up!”


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
