The Riddle comes first:


Two convicts are locked in a cell. There is an unbarred
window high up in the cell. No matter if they stand on the
bed or one on top of the other they can't reach the window
to escape. They then decide to tunnel out. However, they
give up with the tunneling because it will take too long.
Finally one of the convicts figures out how to escape from
the cell. What is his plan?

to climb up to the window to escape.

A man entered a stationery store and asked the
clerk for a birthday/anniversary card.
.
The clerk replied, "We have birthday cards and we
have anniversary cards. Why not take one of each?"
.
The man said, "You don't understand. I need a card
that covers *both* events!  You see, we're celebrating
the fifth anniversary of my wife's thirty-fourth birthday..."
.
=============================
.
First man:  My wife suggested that I take up a new
sport this summer.
.
Second man:  Well, that's nice.  It shows that she has
your interests at heart.  Did she make any suggestions?
.
First man:  As a matter of fact, she did.  By the way, how
do you play this Russian Roulette?

Sally had lived a good life, having been married
four times.  Now she stood before the Pearly Gates.
.
The angel at the gates said to her, "I see that you
first of all married a banker, then an actor, next a
pastor and lastly an undertaker.  Why? This does
not seem appropriate for a Christian woman."
.
"Oh yes it is," Sally replied. "It's one for the money,
two for the show, three to make ready and four to go."

=============================

An attractive young girl, chaperoned by an ugly
old woman, entered the doctor's office.  "We have
come for an examination" said the young girl.
.
"Alright," said the doctor. "Go behind that curtain
and take your clothes off."
.
"No, not me" said the girl. "it's my old aunt here."
.
"Very well," said the doctor. "Madam, stick out
your tongue."
