Little Johnny

A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans. Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be like the teacher, all the kids raised their hands, except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different...again. Little Johnny said, "Because I'm not an Obama fan."

The teacher asked, "Why aren't you a fan of Obama?"

Johnny said, "Because I'm a Republican."

The teacher asked him why he's a Republican. Little Johnny answered, "Well, my Mom's a Republican, my Dad's a Republican, so I'm a Republican."

Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, "If you Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?"

With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, "That would make me an Obama fan."

The Old Cow

Suddenly, a cow jumps out into the road, the car hits it full on, and the car comes to a stop.

Nancy Pelosi, in her usual charming manner, says to the chauffeur, "You get out and check, you were driving."

So the chauffeur gets out, checks, and reports that the animal is dead, but it was old. "You were driving, so you go and tell the farmer," says Nancy.

Two hours later the chauffeur returns totally plastered, hair ruffled with a big grin on his face. "My God, what happened to you?" asks Nancy.

The chauffeur replies, "When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of malt whisky, the wife gave me a wonderful meal and the daughter made love to me."

"What on earth did you say?" asks Nancy.

"I just knocked on the door and when it opened I said to them, 'I'm Nancy Pelosi's chauffeur, and I've just killed the old cow.'"

High Stakes

The man says to the butcher, "Are you a gambling man?"

The butcher replies "Yes, you could say that."

The man says "Okay then, I bet you $100 you can't reach that meat you've got hanging from the ceiling up there."

The butcher looks up and says "No, sorry."

The man says, "I thought you said you were a gambling man, why not?"

The butcher answers. "The steaks are too high."

How to make sure someone is really dead...

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed.

The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services.

He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?"

The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a gun shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"
