Pretty Good Jokes

Old Folk Jokes
a guy I know says he is pickiting the grocery store. He was standing in line with a big bag of dog food when the woman behind him asked what kind of dog he had. He said, "this is for me." She said, "Oh you poor man." He said, "No, this stuff is good for you, but you have to be careful, I ended up in the hospital last week." She said, "Why, does it bother your stomach?" He said, "No, I was taking a leak on a fire hydrant and a truck hit me." The people behind the woman were laughing so hard they dropped their groceries and made a mess, so he is not allowed in the grocery store anymore.

—Jim Bertolino, Riverton, Illinois
