The one who didn't get too sick and showed the promised immunity afterward.

I recalled 1 of them was really ill after taking the vaccine.

Bids on this year's Halloween charity sale will be remote this year due to COVID-19.

It's a spooky auction at a distance.

Once, a funny (and good) teacher came into the class and said this joke, only it was not about the school, but about some other tall building in front of the school. "Do you know I can jump higher than that building?". We didn't believe him, and he proceeded to demonstrate, jumping about 20 cm from the floor. Then we argued "that's not higher than that building", and of course, he replied that the building can't jump at all. We all laugh and then the class continued with normal things. After about 5 or 10 minutes, a heavy laughing from the corner of our colleague, "HA HA HA HA"... the joke was at least, getting to him. Of course we knew him, and we laughed again, but then he could not stop himself, and every 10 minutes or so, he was bursting in laughs.

But the most funny part is yet to come. This guy had friends in other classes too (our age group was split in 6 or 7 different classes, each between 30 and 40 kids, big school). The first thing when the class ended, he met his friends on the corridor during the break and could not resist to trick them with this joke. But what came from his mouth was something like: "Do you know I can jump higher than that building can jump?"

We were all effectively rolling on the floor with laughing... He understood the joke soooo well, hahaha...

We have a friend that loves to tell jokes. His wife (bless her heart) will often ask him to tell one to others but she says it like this:

"Ron, tell them the joke about the <Inserts Punch Line Here>"

Her: It’s not working out between us. For starters, I’m sick of your terrible jokes.

Me: I understand. And for the main course?

(retina-style joke, I randomly run into, on the web today; I have the feeling he will like it, if not already posted)

I got fired from my job at the bank today. An old lady came in and asked me to check her balance, so I pushed her over.

Sometimes I wake up grumpy. But other times I let her sleep in.

The history of the United Kingdom contains so many fascinating little details. For instance, did you know that William Wallace enjoyed vacationing in Cwmystwyth? It was one of the few places he didn't have to worry about being disemvoweled.

There is a parade in honor of Donald Trump.
Pennsylvania Avenue is lined from end to end 20 people deep; overflowing onto the side streets.
Everyone is cheering and clapping and singing and beating drums and ringing bells.
A Fox News reports asks his follow reporter; "How does his hair look?"
"I can't tell; the casket is closed."

Last night SWMBO and I watched three Netflix movies back to back.

Luckily I was the one facing the TV.
