Satisfying Junk Food for Thought…by Jim Carlton

  • We have a new business in Mount Dora, Hair World. I sure hope it’s not a restaurant.


  • If you think old soldiers just fade away try getting into your old uniform.


  • I met an advocate for carpal tunnel syndrome. She was wearing a typewriter ribbon on her shirt.


  • Being obscure is my claim to fame.


  • I’d like to see a pacemaker developed by the company that manufactures the Clapper.


  • I don’t like people who take drugs. TSA workers, for instance.


  • My new guitar amplifier weighs at least three Limbaughs.


  • I had to get a new computer a few months ago because mine crashed…after I kicked it. And the insurance company wouldn’t cover my broken toe. They said stupidity is a pre-existing condition.


  • I like my wife’s in-laws much better than my own.


  • I’ve found that sometimes you have unsay it with flowers.


  • If you blow out the candles on your birthday cake and wish for one candle to stay lit, can your wish still come true?


  • Dogs don’t care. If a dog can do it, you can watch.
