This week, a
Notes For the Milkman
compendium of wit,
wisdom and neat stuff
you can tell at parties. Enjoy!
(From Great Britain)
"Dear Milkman, I've just had a baby, please leave another one."
"Please leave an extra pint of paralysed milk."
"Cancel one pint after the day after today."
"Please don't leave any more milk. All they do is drink it."
"Milkman please close the gate behind you because the birds keep pecking the tops off the milk."
"Milkman. please could I have a loaf but not bread today."
"Please cancel milk. I have nothing coming into the house but two sons on the dole."
"Sorry not to have paid your bill before, but my wife had a baby and I've been carrying it around in my pocket for weeks."
"Sorry about yesterdays note. I didn't mean one egg and a dozen pints, but the other way round."
"When you leave my milk knock on my bedroom window and wake me because I want you to give me a hand to turn the mattress.
"Please knock. My TV's broken down and I missed last nights Coronation Street. If you saw it, will you tell me what happened?"
"My daughter says she wants a milkshake. Do you do it before you deliver or do I have to shake the bottle."
"Please send me a form for cheap milk, for I have a baby two months old and did not know about it until a neighbour told me."
"Milk is needed for the baby. Father is unable to supply it."
"From now on please leave two pints every other day and one pint on the days in between, except Wednesdays and Saturdays when I don't want any milk."
"My back door is open. Please put milk in 'fridge, get money out of cup in drawer and leave change on kitchen table in pence, because we want to play bingo tonight."
"Please leave no milk today. When I say today, I mean tomorrow, for I wrote this note yesterday."
"When you leave the milk please put the coal on the boiler, let dog out and put newspaper inside the screen door. PS. Don't leave any milk.
"No milk. Please do not leave milk at No. 14 either as he is dead until further notice."
That’s My Boy!
A young Louisiana lad goes off to LSU, but about 1/3 of the way through the semester, he foolishly squandered away all of the money his parents gave him.
Then he gets an idea. He calls his daddy. "Dad," he says, "you won't believe the wonders that modern education are coming up with! Why, they actually have a program here at LSU that will teach our dog Ole Blue how to talk!"
"That's absolutely amazing," his father says. "How do I get him in that program?"
"Just send him down here with $1,000" the boy says. "I'll get him into the course." So, his father sends the dog and the $1,000. About 2/3 way through the semester, the money runs out. The boy calls his father again.
"So how's Ole Blue doing, son," his father asks.
"Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm," he says, "but you just won't believe this- they have had such good results with this program that they have implemented a new one to teach the animals how to READ!"
"READ" say his father" no kidding! What do I have to do to get him in that program?"
"Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class". His father sends the money.
The boy now has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out that the dog can neither talk, nor read. So he shoots the dog.
When he gets home at end of the semester, his father is all excited. "Where's Ole Blue? I just can't wait to see him talk and read something!"
"Dad" the boy says, "I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we drove home, Ole Blue was in the living room kicked back in the recliner, reading the MORNING ADVOCATE, like he usually does. Then he turned to me and asked, "so, is your dad still messing around with that little redhead who lives on Oak Street?"
The father says, "I hope you shot the SOB before he talks to your mother!"
" I sure did, dad!"
"That's my boy!"
She told me we couldn't afford beer anymore and I'd have to quit.
Then I caught her spending $65.00 on make-up. I asked how come I had to give up stuff and she didn't.
She said she needed the make-up to look pretty for me.
I told her that was what the beer was for.
I don't think she's coming back.
This Kind of Stuff Has Got To Stop In our Country!
We Must stop this Immediately!
Have you noticed that stairs are getting steeper. Groceries are heavier. And, everything is farther away . . . Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street had become!
And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the same silent message until they're red in the face! What do they think I am, a lip reader?
I also think they are much younger than I was at the same age. On the other hand, people my own age are so much older than I am. I ran into an old friend the other day and she has aged so much that she didn't even recognize me.
I got to thinking about the poor dear while I was combing my hair this morning, and in doing so, I glanced at my own reflection . . . well, REALLY NOW- even mirrors are not made the way they used to be!
Another thing, everyone drives so fast these days! You're risking life and limb if you happen to pull onto the freeway in front of them . . . All I can say is, their brakes must wear out awfully fast, the way I see them screech and swerve in my rear view mirror.
Clothing manufacturers are less civilized these days. Why else would they suddenly start labeling a size 10 or 12 dress as 18 or 20? Do they think no one notices that these things no longer fit around the waist, hips,
thighs, and bosom?
The people who make bathroom scales are pulling the same prank, but in reverse. Do they think I actually "believe" the number I see on that dial?
HA! I would never let myself weigh that much! Just who do these people think they're fooling?
I'd like to call up someone in authority to report what's going on -- but the telephone company is in on the conspiracy too: they've printed the phone books in such small type that no one could ever find a number in here!
All I can do is pass along this warning: We are under attack! Unless something drastic happens, pretty soon everyone will have to suffer these awful indignities.

A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghanistan desert when he saw something far off in the distance.
Hoping to find water, he walked toward the object, only to find a little old Jewish man at a small stand selling neckties.
The Taliban asked, "Do you have water?"
The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5."
The Arab shouted, "Idiot Jew! Israel should not exist! I do not need an overpriced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first."
"OK," said the old Jew, "it does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about 4 and one half miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the water you need. Shalom."
Muttering insults, the Arab staggered away over the hill.
Several hours later, at deaths door from the heat and lack of water, the Arab staggered back. "Your brother won't let me in without a tie."
