Added Junk Food for Thought…By Jim Carlton

  • Our dog saw Tricia and me dancing the other night and wanted to join in. Of course he’s not very good. He has two left feet


  • I just read where July is Sinus Pain Awareness month. If you have sinus pain, how can you not be aware of it?


  • I see the Lakeside Inn is running a special: drinks are only two dollars. But that’s with a mail-in rebate.


  • What’s the worst thing a woman can get for her 25th anniversary? Morning sickness.


  • When will all the rhetorical questions end?


  • I bought some sheet music that had a misprint. The first line read: “Frankie and Johnny were movers.”


  • A car will travel at a rate of speed that’s the inverse proportion to its number of bumper stickers. The more stickers, the slower the speed. And the less distance a driver has to go before he turns, the more likely he is to pull out in front of you.
