In a very exclusive private school near California's Silicon Valley, a third-grade teacher was lecturing her upper high-class students about the less fortunate. She asked them each to write an essay about a poor family in the area.
One young girl's paper began:
"Once upon a time there was a poor family. The father was poor. The mother was poor. The children were poor. The nannies were poor. The pool man was poor. The personal trainer was poor. The gardeners were poor. This was a very poor family."
The boyfriend calls his girlfriend and says, "Hi, hon, are you good with your heart transplant tomorrow?"
"Oh, I'm a bit frightened, but confident," she answers.
"You know, I love you, and I'm sure everything is gonna be fine," he adds.
"I love you too!" she says and hangs up.
After a successful surgery, she wakes up and when she sees her father beside her, she inquires, "Where's my boyfriend?"
"Whose heart do you think is in your body now?" asks her dad.
"NOOOO!!!" she exclaims.
"Calm down," said her father, "this was just to test your new heart. He just went to the restroom..."
As a man serviced an alarm system at a jewelry store recently, the saleswoman let him know that the store was having a 20 percent off sale.
"I bet your girlfriend would love it if you bought her something," she suggested.
"I don't have a girlfriend," he answered.
"No girlfriend? Why not?"
"My wife won't let me. "
Moses was walking down the street when he bumped into the ex-President. "Hello," Bush said. "Nice weather we're having, huh?"
Moses took one look at the President, turned and ran in the other direction. The next day Moses was walking down the same street and there was Bush. Again he tried to initiate a conversation. Again Moses turned and ran away.
Bush was tired of this bizarre treatment, so the next time Moses ran away from him, Bush followed. When he caught up, he asked Moses what was wrong.
Moses said, "The last time I talked to a bush I spent 40 years in the desert."
