Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility.

A very elderly gentleman, remarkably well dressed in a great looking suit with a boutonnière in his lapel, hair handsomely groomed, slightly scented with a good after shave, and presenting a striking physique, walks into an upscale cocktail lounge. Seated at the bar is a lady also up in years.
The gentleman walks over, sits along side of her, orders a drink, takes a sip, then turns to her.” So tell me,” he says, “do I come here often?”

A man was touring a nursing home with the head administrator, when he asked a question: “What criteria do you use to determine when a person has lost his faculties enough to require institutionalization?”
“Well, we have a simple test,” said the administrator. “We put them in a room with a bathtub full of water, give them a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket, and tell them to empty the tub.”
“I see,” said the man, “a rational person would use the bucket, so that the job would get done quicker.”
“No,” said the administrator, “a rational person would pull the plug. Would you prefer a bed near the wall or near the window?”

›› The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.
