Should have known

Some things to think about as we move into the Christmas season:

n According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

n Female reindeer retain their antlers til after they give birth in the spring…

n Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa’s reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen had to be a girl. We should have known…

n Only women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost!

Explaining his claim

A farmer who’s been involved in a terrible road accident with a large truck ended up in court fighting for a big compensation claim.

“I understand you’re claiming damages for the injuries you’re supposed to have suffered?” stated the counsel for the insurance company.

“Yes, that’s right,” replied the farmer, nodding his head.

“You claim you were injured in the accident, yet I have a signed police statement that says that when the attending police officer asked you how you were feeling, you replied, “I’ve never felt better in my life.’ Is that the case?”

“Yeah .. but,” stammered the farmer.

“A simple yes or no will suffice,” counsel interrupted quickly.

“Yes,” Replied the farmer.

Then it was the turn of the farmer’s counsel to ask him questions.

“Please tell the court the exact circumstance of events following the accident when you made your statement of health,” his lawyer said.

“Certainly,” replied the farmer. “After the accident my horse was thrashing around with a broken leg and my poor old dog was howling in pain. This cop comes along, takes one look at my horse and shoots him dead. “Then he goes over to my dog, looks at him and shoots him dead too. Then he come straight over to me and asked me how I was feeling.

“Now, what the heck would you have said to him?”
