Customer: I'm calling about the "dime-a-minute" rate. I want to sign up for that.
Phone Company: Certainly, Sir! Just let me get some information from you.
Customer: Right, well, can you go ahead and tell me when I'll get my first check?
Phone Company: What, Sir?
Customer: Well, since you're going to give me a dime a minute, I wondered when I'll start getting paid.
Phone Company: No, Sir, we don't PAY you.
Customer: You mean this is a FRAUD?
Phone Company: No, Sir! It's just that we don't PAY you the dime a minute. Let me let you talk to a supervisor.
....long conversation with supervisor...
Phone Company: Now do you understand, Sir?
Customer: I guess so. Could we talk about the "friends-and-family" plan? I've always wanted a little brother.
Tom and Kitty Katz lived in a large home in an upscale suburb with a large pool and tennis courts. Their neighbors were a Chinese family named Mao who also had a fine home but with only a small pool and no tennis courts.
When the Katz' went on vacation they left a house key with the Maos who would keep an eye on things.
The Katz' returned a few days early and found the Maos and a lot of their extended family having a pool and tennis party. Kitty turned to Tom and said, "I guess the old saying is true. . . . WHEN THE KATZ' AWAY THE MAOS WILL PLAY."
A hillbilly and his son were sitting in front of the fire, smoking their pipes, crossing and uncrossing their legs.
The tiresome jury selection process continued, each side hotly contesting and dismissing potential jurors.
