“Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day. It’s the one day each year when
we tell our teachers that there’s no one we’re prouder of, and our teachers are
like, ‘There’s no one OF WHOM you’re prouder.'” -Jimmy Fallon
“Facebook is adding a new feature that will allow people to use Facebook as an
online dating app. I’m not sure Facebook understands why we use Facebook.
Facebook isn’t for finding dates; it’s for finding people we used to date. Then
we silently judge them, feel better about ourselves.
That’s the only use for Facebook.” -James Corden
“In a new interview, billionaire Warren Buffett called Bitcoin ‘rat poison.’ Which
is an unfair comparison because people actually understand
how rat poison works.” -Conan O’Brien
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
At the company water cooler, I bragged about my children’s world travels: one son
was teaching in Bolivia, another was working in southern Italy, and my daughter
was completing a year-long research project in India.

“that makes your kids want to get so far away from you?” 😳

Eagle-eye Ixolite, the world famous dart player, was at an exhibition match and was showing off to the audience. “I can throw a dart and it will hit the board anywhere I want!” he cried. “Where on the board shall I put my next dart?” he asked the crowd. A small boy came up to Eagle-Eye and passed him a slip of paper. Eagle-eye, who liked a rebus, took one look at the note, threw his head back and laughed, then threw the dart. Where did it land?
This is what was on the note: Perfume Bottle R.I.P.
Answer: It landed in the bullseye.
