It’s my husband’s birthday and we’re in a whimsical mood. That being the case, how about a few jokes!

Did you hear about the potter’s apprentice who melted a whole kiln load of ware? He got fired!

In front of a delicatessen, an art connoisseur noticed a mangy little kitten lapping up milk from a saucer. The saucer, he realized with a start, was a rare and precious piece of pottery. He strolled into the store and offered ten dollars for the cat. “It’s not for sale,” said the proprietor. 

“Look,” said the collector, “that cat is dirty and undesirable, but I’m eccentric. I like cats that way. I’ll raise my offer to twenty dollars.” 

“It’s a deal,” said the proprietor, and pocketed the twenty on the spot.

“For that sum I’m sure you won’t mind throwing in the saucer,” said the connoisseur. “The kitten seems so happy drinking from it.”

“Nothing doing,” said the proprietor firmly. “That’s my lucky saucer. From that saucer, so far this week I’ve sold 34 cats.”


Hope you have a good week! — Jan
