Sticky Junk Food For Thought…by Jim Carlton

  • I knew a guy who testified against the mob and the government got him a job going door to door preaching the gospel. He says he’s in the Jehovah’s Witness Protection Program.


  • I finally acknowledged my denial about being dyslexic when I showed up at a toga party dressed as a goat.


  • I want them to play Miley Cyrus’ music at my funeral. That way I won’t feel so bad about being dead, and my friends will know there’s something worse than death.


  • The GOP wants to unveil a new program for seniors: “Just Say No To Prescription Drugs.”


  • I just saw where the creator of Crest toothpaste died last week. Four out of five dentists attended the funeral.


  • I hate to spread rumors, but what else can you do with them?


  • I stopped seeing my shrink because he kept meddling in my personal life.


  • The best things in life are free…and the cheapest things in life are also free ….with a paid subscription to Sports Illustrated.
