Light
A fellow nurse at my hospital received a call from an anxious woman. “I’m diabetic and I’m afraid I’ve had too much sugar today,” she said.
“Are you light-headed?” my colleague asked.
“No,” the caller answered, “I’m a brunette.”
Softly
A churchwarden went to the Police Station wishing to see the burglar who had slipped in and out of the church during evensong. “You’ll get your chance in court,” said the Desk Sergeant.
“I don’t want revenge,” said the man. “I want to know how he got out of the service early without the vicar noticing. I’ve been trying to do that for years!”

Are you taking a mid-winter break?
If you are preparing to take off for foreign climes, do keep an eye out for signs that have English words… but perhaps not an English meaning! In hotels and train stations and airports all over the world there are polite little signs that will bring a smile to the lips of even an exhausted traveller. For instance, how about these*:
Switzerland: We have nice bath and are very good in bed.
Romania: The lift is being fixed for the next day. During that time we regret you will be unbearable.
Russia: If this is your first visit to the USSR, you are welcome to it.
Italy: If service is required, give two strokes to the maid and three to the waiter.
Spain: Our wine list leaves you with nothing to hope for.
Denmark: In the event of fire, open a window and announce your presence in a seemly manner.
Canary Islands: If you telephone for room service you will get the answer you deserve.

The puppy

A clergyman was walking down the street when he came upon a group of about a dozen boys, surrounding a small puppy. Concerned lest the boys were hurting it, he went to investigate. One boy explained, “We just found this puppy, and we all want him. So we’ve decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to take him home.”

The minister was taken aback. “Don’t you boys know it’s a sin to lie? Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie.” There was dead silence for a moment. The minister thought he had got through to them.

Then the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, “All right, give him the dog.”
