“Mr. Peterson,” she asked, “Would you say you’re honest?”
“Honest?” replied Peterson. “Let me tell you something about honesty. My father lent me $85,000 for my education, and I paid back every penny the minute I tried my first case.”
“Impressive,” said the investment banker. “And what sort of case was that?”
“Dad sued me for the money.”
A man went to a psychiatrist and said, “Doctor, I keep having this feeling that I’m a cat.”

The Tate Family
In our church, we have a large family, the Tate family. These are the members of the Tate family who serve in our church:
Dick Tate always wants things done his way. Hesi Tate will often wait to make church decisions. Facili Tate will do anything for anyone in need. Medi Tate often thinks over things before starting a church project. Vegi Tate is healthy but never gets anything done. Agi Tate mostly stirs up trouble. Ampu Tate is the black sheep and cut herself off from the church family years ago. Ira Tate doesn’t know how to get along with most of the people in our church.

I didn’t enlist in the Army — I was drafted. So I wasn’t going to make life easy for anyone.
During my physical, the doctor asked softly, “Can you read the letters on the wall?”

A Reasonable Question?
The wife of a certain pedantic philosopher asked him to go out and buy her a bottle of oil. He was returning, later, with the bottle when he began to muse, “Now, is the oil really in the bottle? Or do my senses deceive me? Could it be, rather, that the bottle is in the oil?”
His wife met him at the door and demanded, “Where is the oil?”
“My wife,” the philosopher declared grandly, “I have just made an important discovery!”
“Where is the oil?” she repeated.
“I am coming to that,” he assured her. “Listen: I purchased the oil. Then, looking at it, I thought, “Yes, this is oil, and it appears to be inside the bottle. My apperceptive perception, however, doubts whether the oil really is in the bottle, or whether the bottle might not, possibly, be inside the oil.”
“Where is the oil?” demanded his wife.
“Yes, yes, I’m just coming to that,” he assured her hastily. “So then I upturned the bottle. And now, I think that maybe the oil was in the bottle!”
“You fool!” cried his wife. Picking up a broom, she beat him over his “apperceptively perceptive” head with it.
“Now I know,’ the philosopher concluded in triumph, “that the oil was in the bottle!”
