trick AND treat

q: why are graveyards so noisy?
a: Because of all the coffin!

let's go through the same torture i go through every halloween.

i ask the kids (the five that come to our door!) here to tell a joke for their candy, and they look at me blankly and hold out their candy bags.


AP-arantely, the joke-telling-for-candy ritual is not commonly practiced in this part of the world.

is it in yours?

Okay, one more:

q: what did tennessee?
a: the same thing arkansas.

(do i get a twix now?)

(somebody get me a damn twix bar.)

We will be in the air your time, Friday at 530pm and get in Tulsa Sat 830pm.
For us we leave Sat 630am & get in Tulsa 830pm...so we really have 2 Saturdays(like 30hr +). Thank goodness Matt is able to come back with me!
Have fun with those kids. If they dont tell a joke, give 'em some sticks & switches :) Cruel I know.

we never did jokes in OK and they don't seem to do them here either. I'll give it a whirl tonight, just for you.

and here are some jokes for you to make up for the t-or-t-ers that don't have 'em...

why do gorillas have big nostrils?
because they have big fingers!

why do elephants paint their toenails red?
so they can hide in cherry trees.

have you ever seen an elephant in a cherry tree?
then it works!

and, drumroll please, this one is JUST for YOU!

what do a texas tornado and an arkansas divorce have in common?

either way somebody loses a trailer. :)

I had about 60 kids. Several jokes were offered without me asking. I enjoy it. One of my favorites was told by a young boy.....I think his older brother put him up to it.
Q. What do Michael Jackson and JC Penny have in common?
