Glendora Vegan Club

Glendora asked Amy what she liked about her dog; That he gave such loving kisses. What else? He wags his tail when you ask him if he wants to go for a walk. What else? He barks when a stranger comes near me. He looks happy when I give him treats. What else? He appreciated the big birthday party I gave him when he was nine years-old. He loves me because I rescued him from the Humane Society.


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Said the lawyer, “The bricks in the wall are loose, we have a great case… we will sue mother goose.”

The woman answered the front door and said, “I did not send for a piano tuner.” The man said, “No, ma’am. The neighbors did.”

Folks, there are some things money can’t buy. For instance, poverty. You need credit cards for that.

The daddy said to his son, “Son, you have to learn from the mistakes of others.” You simply do not have time to make them all yourself.”

Lawyer: “I’ll take your case on a retainer basis. That will be $3,000 and entitles you to two questions.” Client: “$3,000 for two questions. Isn’t that expensive?” Lawyer: “Perhaps… what’s your second question?”
