Thursday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!


Here’s the Story……
A guy walks into a New York diner with an ostrich. They both sit down at the counter and after a few moments, the waitress asks them whether they’re ready to order. “Yes,” said the guy, “I’ll have the cheeseburger with fries and a Coke.” He then looks at the ostrich and says, “What are you having?“ “The same,” says the ostrich.
About ten minutes later the waitress returns with their order and then says. “That’ll be $22.00 please.“ The man reaches into his pocket and, without even looking he pulls out the exact amount of money for payment. The next day, the same guy and his ostrich return and once again the guy says, “I’ll have the cheeseburger with fries and a Coke please.“ And once again the ostrich says, “The same.“ Once again when their order arrives, the guy reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact amount of money to settle the bill. This goes on for a few days and is becoming a routine, when one night they enter the diner and the waitress asks, “The usual?“ “No,” said the guy “as it’s Friday I’ll have the T-bone steak with a baked potato, a green salad and a glass of Merlot.” “Same for me,” said the ostrich. The waitress brings the order and then says, “That’ll be $53.00.”
Once again the guy reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact amount of money to pay the bill.
At this point the waitress is unable to suppress her curiosity any longer and she says to the guy,
“Excuse me sir. How is it you always manage to pull from your pocket the exact amount of money? You do it every time.”
“Well,” said the guy, “several years ago I was cleaning my attic and I found an old oil lamp. When I
rubbed it a genie appeared and granted me two wishes.”
“Really?” said the waitress. “And what did you wish for?”
“Well my first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket
and the exact amount of money would always be there,” said the guy.
“Now that’s brilliant!” the waitress responded. “Most people would wish for like a million dollars or something but you’ll always be as rich as you need to be for as long as you live!“
“That’s right,” said the guy. “Whether I’m buying a pitcher of beer or a Bugatti Chiron,
the exact amount of money will always be there.”
The waitress was clearly impressed but still a little curious.
“So what’s with the ostrich then?” she inquired.
The guy sighs and then says, “Well, my second wish was for a tall
chick with long legs who agrees with everything I say.“
The waitress smiled at him and said, “Be careful what you wish for…..
Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Have a GREAT THURSDAY people, stay safe,
and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up!
Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Watch what I can do. Come on. It’s alright. Look. The water’s stiff.”

Answer: “Bambi”
The animated film “Bambi” was produced in 1942 by Walt Disney. It was directed by David Hand and written by Felix Salten (the novel), Larry Morey (the story adaptation) and Perce Pearce (the story direction). It is a wonderful story of the adventures of a fawn named Bambi, and his friends Thumper, Flower, Friend Owl and Faline. The film shows exquisite animation through the journey of Bambi as he grows up, falls in love and becomes a strong buck. There are heartbreaking events and heartwarming scenes throughout the movie.
Thumper says this wonderful quote to Bambi, as they discover the frozen pond. Thumper pounds his foot on the ice and wiggles his little nose as he coaxes Bambi to step foot on the ice. Bambi slides and wobbles. His unsteady legs go every which way. Eventually, Thumper gets Bambi back on his feet and pushes him along the ice. This is when Bambi see Faline, the immediate love of his life.
