The Winding Up Begins

As I tell the last few jokes of the challenge, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourites of the previous jokes.

Every day, I will post a new joke and an old joke.  I’m sure you won’t mind.

I’ll share this joke to start the ball rolling; it’s one of my favourites simply because it’s Joke 1, posted on March 25, 2011.  It’s actually rubbish but I have a sentimental fondness for it:


*In a grammar lesson in eighth grade Mrs. O’Neill said, “Paul, give me a sentence with a direct object.”

Paul replied. “Everyone thinks you are the best teacher in the school.”

“Thank you, Paul,” responded Mrs. O’Neill, “but what is the object?”

“To get the best mark possible,” said Paul.

    Chuckles. I can see why you like it, too. 🙂
    Love the new idea.
    Over here, when we want to start something, we wind it up, as in a hopping rabbit toy or an alarm clock; when it needs rewinding, we way it has wound down. Just sayin’. 🙂

    The old ones are the best ones – or so they say.

    Shouldn’t that be an objective?

    Just brilliant *smile Good luck with your new objective. *smile


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.
