WELCOME to THURSDAY FEBRUARY 18, 2021
Here’s the Story……
Jerry was an Iron Man champion who also owned a bar just off the Las Vegas Strip. Everyone in town knew that Jerry was the strongest man around and knowing that visitors to Las Vegas liked a bet, he used that to his advantage in attracting people into his bar. On the counter there was a big sign headlined Challenge Jerry. In the small print it
explained the bet was that anyone who could beat Jerry in a strongman challenge could win $1,000. The cost of the bet was $10.
In the challenge, Jerry would squeeze the juice from an orange into a glass. Once Jerry
had squeezed the life out of the orange, challengers had to take the orange and see
if they could squeeze any more juice from it.
Over the years truck drivers, lumberjacks, weightlifters and all sorts of tough guys had
tried to beat Jerry in this challenge but, so far, no one had ever got the better of him.
One day a small, thin, weak-looking, middle-aged man with thinning hair and heavy-rimmed
spectacles walked into the bar, slapped a $10 bill on the counter and said that he was willing to take up the challenge.
Everyone in the bar started laughing at the idea that this weak-looking, little man would
have any chance of beating Jerry and walking out with the $1,000.
Jerry smiled at the man, picked up the $10 and said, “OK Buddy, you’ve got yourself a bet.”
He then picks up one of California’s finest and squeezes the juice out of it until the glass is
almost full. What remains of the orange was then handed to the challenger.
The little man focused momentarily and then started squeezing as hard as he could with
both hands. To everyone’s amazement, within seconds, half a dozen drops of juice dripped into the glass.
Jerry congratulated the man on his success and handed him $1,000.
“I’m impressed,” said Jerry. “What do you do for a living, buddy? I’m guessing you must be a lumberjack?”
“Oh no,” the man responded. “I work for the IRS.” 😁😎
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!

including the word ‘photobomb.’ They didn’t WANT to add
‘photobomb,’ but it jumped in at the last second and kinda
ruined the dictionary.” -Jimmy Fallon

G u a r a n t e e d to Make You Laugh!
A young couple honeymooning in Las Vegas were down to their last two dollars.
The groom told the bride that he had a feeling that he could turn the two bucks
into a fortune if he went down to the casino alone.
Once in the casino, he put one dollar each into two slot machines and won Jackpots
on both totaling $10,000. He then played blackjack for an hour until he had $50,000
in chips. Next, he played poker and upped his winnings to $100,000.
He was about to cash in his chips when he got a hunch that his luck hadn’t run out.
So, he took all his money and placed it on Black at the roulette table, hoping to double
his money. But the ball came up Red. He returned to his hotel room.
“How did you do?” asked the bride.
The groom shrugged and said, “I lost two dollars.” 😱😳😁😎
