1. Billy, the piano teacher will be here in 15 minutes. Have you washed your hands and face?


Did you wash your ears?

Yes, the one next to her.

2. Three ropes went into a restaurant and started looking over the menu. The head waiter said, “Wait a minute, aren’t you ropes? We don’t serve ropes here. You have to leave.” Out on the sidewalk, one rope became incensed. He frazzled both of his ends and tied himself into a knot, then went back into the restaurant. He sat down to order, but the head waiter said, “Aren’t you a rope?” The rope answered, “I’m a frayed knot.”

3. Bob and Pete were very close friends and avid baseball fans. They made a pact that the first one who got to heaven would come back and tell the other one if there was baseball in heaven. Bob went first and came back and said, “Pete! Pete! There is baseball in heaven. Pete said, “Hallelujah!” Bob said, “You’re pitching Friday night!”

4. The concert pianist was asked by a reporter, “Why did you choose to play Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto? After long thought the pianist answered, “That’s what the orchestra was playing.”

5. The football coach said to the professor, “You have to pass my star player. If you don’t we will lose the series.” The math professor answered, “But he said 7×5=33.” The coach said, “So? He only missed it by one!”
