Gullible comes from the Old Norse word "gull" as in the bird, who swallows things whole.

I heard that the word "gullible" wasn't actually in the dictionary...

"Is it a bird? Is it a plane?" and that's how I lost my apprenticeship as a carpenter.

I like to meet my wife everyday for lunch at 12:59.. ... I really enjoy our one to one time.

Guest at a posh restaurant: What's the special today?
Waiter: It's meadow-lark pie, sir.
Guest: Hmm... I'll have that.
(in a few minutes the waiter brings a huge slice filled with meat)
Guest: Oh, and how many meadow-larks did you have to catch to prepare that!
Waiter (confidentially): Well, the chef does mix in some horse meat, sir.
Guest: Horse meat? In what proportion?
Waiter: Strictly fifty-fifty, sir. Half a meadow-lark, half a horse.

I must have studied this for about 5 whole minutes before it hit me suddenly.

I've just started a dating site for chickens. It's not my normal day job. I'm just doing it to make Hens meet.

Want to play a real life version of Pac-Man?
Then go to a furniture store and try and avoid the salesrep.

Back in the day everyone owned a horse, it was the rich that had cars. Now everyone owns cars and it's the rich that have horses.
My how the stables have turned.
