    batteries are getting weak?

    try?

    How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

    When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a
    shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all
    right?" Well, it isn't all right so why don't we say, "That hurt,
    you stupid idiot?"

    Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's
    falling off the table, you always manage to knock something else
    over?

    Mental illness is inherited - parents get it from their kids.

    Who ever said there's no such thing as a stupid question, never taught school. (or has never been a LEO, etc.)

    My favorite stupid question is, "Are we going to be doing anything important in class tomorrow?" It doesn't matter what I say to that, the next thing I hear is, "Well I can't be there tomorrow."

    I've often wondered why you put a pill in your stomach when you have a headache!

    There are no stupid questions...only stupid people who ask questions.
