Roy saw his old friend Paul drinking by himself at a bar. They hadn’t seen each other in over a year, and Paul was looking noticeably down.
“Long time no see, Paul,” began Roy. “How are things going?”
Roy looked up at his old friend with sadness in his eyes, and said, “Four months ago, my mother died and left me $10,000.”
“Gee, that’s tough,” Roy replied.
“Then two months ago,” Paul continued, “My father died, leaving me $20,000.”
“Wow. Two parents gone in two months,” Roy commented. “No wonder you look so depressed.”
Pressing on, Paul said, “And last month my aunt died, and left me $15,000.”
“Three close family members lost in three months? Paul, I’m so sorry for your loss!”
“Then this month,” sighed Paul, “absolutely nothing!”

As it turned out, the owner of the station was a former boyfriend of the former first lady. They exchanged their hellos, and went on their way.
As the they pulled out of the station, Bill put his arm around Hillary and said, “Well, honey, if you would had stayed with him, you would be the wife of a service station owner today.”
She smirked and replied, “No, if I had stayed with him, he would have been the President of the United States.”
A visitor from Holland was chatting with his American friend and was jokingly explaining about the red, white and blue in the Netherlands flag.
“Our flag symbolizes our taxes,” he said.
“We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bill, and blue after we pay them.”
“That’s the same with us,” the American said, “only we see stars, too.”
Anne was telling Nicole about the new “mirror diet” she was on. “You can eat as much of whatever you want, but you have to do it while standing naked in front of a full length mirror,” she explained.
“Oh, I tried that one,” said Nicole, “but I just couldn’t stand it after the first week!”
“Well, it can be difficult confronting your self image,” remarked Anne.
“No, it wasn’t that,” explained Nicole. “Before I could take a single bite, the restaurant would kick me out!”
While walking through the mall, Tom was stopped by a man with a clipboard.
“I’m taking a survey,” said the man. “Do you think there is too much sex in movies?”
“I’m not sure,” replied Tom. “I get too wrapped up in the film to notice what the rest of the audience is doing.”
