1. A man said if I ever have to have a heart transplant, I want the heart of my boss; it has never been used.

2. There is nothing I will not do for my brother, and there is nothing my brother will not do for me. So we go through life doing nothing for each other.

3. Judge: Why did you park there?

Defendant: The sign says, “Fine for Parking.”
