Old jokes I remember:12 October 2009
"Men are henpecked by their wives and chicken-pecked by their children!"
So the Doctor asks "What is the problem?"
Man: "I talk to myself constantly"
Doctor: "Many people talk to themselves. Why is it a problem for you?"
Man: "Doctor, you don't understand!! I am a big bore"
In a "Mental Hospital" a Journalist asks the Doctor: "How do you determine whether to admit a mental patient or not?"
Dr: "Well..we'd fill a bathtub with water and then give a Teaspoon, a Glass & a Bucket
to the patient and ask them to empty the bathtub ."
Journalist: "Oh, obviously a normal person would use the bucket because its bigger."
Dr: "No, a normal person would pull the drain plug! Please go to Bed No.39. We will start further Investigations on You!"
19 Jun 2016 Father's Day:
I wish my dad happy father's day in the morning. No reaction. Then I say, "What Anna no reaction to Father's Day? Because every day is Father's Day, right?" He smiles!
And starts drinking his coffee. Morning coffee trumps anything else in the world
23 Feb 2016: I read this joke out to my father and he says "My kind of superior quality joke"
26 Jan 2016: Listening to the loud cacophony of birds chirping at sunset, Anna asks me, "What is the definition of noise?"
"I don't know", I say.
"It is the sound that annoys".
26 Oct 2015: Delhi feels the 7.5 Richter north Afghanistan Earthquake
I discuss the earthquake with my father this evening.
He asks, "Why are there no earthquakes on the moon?"
My high school geography and science runs thru my mind - from gravity to landmass movement.
Defeated, I say, "I don't know why there are no earthquakes on the moon."
Anna replies, "There are no earthquakes on the moon because it is the moon. They would be called moonquakes and not earthquakes"
