 JOHNS JOKES

 A dyslexic man walks into a bar.

Dave said I’m going to the Halloween Party  as a scarecrow, people will say I’m outstanding in my field. …..but hay,,, it’s in my jeans.

Ralph went to the bank to check on the poppy fund. At the bank machine, a lady asked him to help check her balance. So he pushed her.

Mike went in to a pet shop. He said, “can I buy a goldfish?” The guy said, “do you want an aquarium?”

Mike said, “i don’t care what zodiac sign it is.”

A kid at the Marine Festival thought he was being smart and asked me what’s a pirates favorite letter?

I said you think it’s Rrr but it might be the C.

It was my anniversary in late September sometime I think.. But it got me thinking … and I remembered what my Uncle Jack told me on my wedding day … He said.  If you want to find out who loves you more, stick your wife and dog in the trunk of your car for an hour.

When you open the trunk, who is happy to see you?

What do you call an elderly person who volunteers at the Legion?

A dentured servant

 See you at the Legion!
