WELCOME to FRIDAY FEBRUARY 11, 2022
Here’s The Story……
One March evening, the boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers, dialed the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.
‘Is your daddy home?’ he asked.
Yes, ‘whispered the small voice.
‘May I talk with him?’
The child whispered, ‘No.’
Surprised, and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, ‘Is your Mommy there?’
Yes.’ ‘May I talk with her?’
Again, the small voice whispered, ‘No.’
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, ‘Is anybody else there?’
Yes, ‘whispered the child, ‘a policeman.’
Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s
home, the boss asked, ‘May I speak with the policeman?’
No, he’s busy’, whispered the child.
‘Busy doing what?’ Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman, ‘came the whispered answer.
Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a Helicopter through the
earpiece on the phone the boss asked, ‘What is that noise?’
‘A hello-copper’ answered the whispering voice.
‘What is going on there?’ asked the boss, now truly alarmed.
In an awed whispering voice, the child answered, ‘The search team just landed the hello-copper.’
Alarmed, concerned, and even more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, ‘What are they searching for?’
Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: ‘ME.’😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT WEEKEND people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“Doritos is reportedly looking into launching a so-called lady-friendly chip that
doesn’t crunch as loudly. Because there’s no more appropriate snack for the MeToo era than a chip that tells women to be quiet.” -Seth Meyers
“A new study found that the amount of man-made heat that’s absorbed by the
ocean has doubled since 1997. The main source of that heat? That kid who’s
waist deep at the beach with that weird smile on his face.” -Jimmy Fallon
“I read today Best Buy and Target are planning to stop selling CDs in their stores.
To which I say: Best Buy and Target are still selling CDs? For those too young to
remember, CDs were these shiny discs that would get scratched almost immediately
and would sit in a binder of the back seat of the car until you sold the car.” -Jimmy Kimmel
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A park ranger in the Everglades was making his rounds a couple of summers ago when a
woman came bolting out of the weeds right in front of his truck. She seemed frantic and
he finally got her calm enough to say that her five-year-old son was sitting on the back of an alligator. Now the ranger was frantic. Running in the direction she was pointing he found the lad astride a twelve foot male alligator which was trying to relieve itself of its load by twisting and snapping. As the brave ranger moved in he tried to console the mother by saying, “I think I can grab the boy and move away before the gator moves. Be ready to grab your son. I may have to shoot the gator.” To which the lady replies “Good Heavens, no! Don’t shoot him. I just wanted you to make him hold still for a minute so I could take my son’s picture on his back.” 😳

Thursday’s Quizzler is….
They say I came from Africa.
I suppose that may be true.
But the type I am was mostly played
In a place where grass is blue.
Of wood and pearl, skin and steel,
You could say I am high strung.
My neck looks like a ladder,
With brass on every rung.
What am I?
Answer: A 5-string banjo.
A 4-string “banjar” was brought to the US by African slaves in the 18th century. An individual named Joel Walter Sweeny of Appomattox Court House, VA, is credited with inventing the 5-string banjo when he adapted the banjar by adding a 5th string. The 5-string banjo was most popularized by its use in Bluegrass Music. Brass is used on the frets of the Banjo neck.
