Many people are unaware that J. S. Bach was an avid horseman. Much of his musical inspiration came while riding. So it was a disasterous day when the great composer's horse tripped, smashing poor Johann to the ground. In extreme pain, J. S. had to stay in bed and could not concentrate on composing.
This might have proved the end of his career, except for the fortunate intervention of a Dr. Gustav Heimlich, one of the early practitioners of what we now refer to as "Physical Therapy". Through a strenuous regiment of massage and exercise, Dr. Heimlich succeeded in "getting Bach in the saddle again!"

St. Peter shook his head in dispair and told the man to stand off to the right. The second man stepped foward and was asked the same question. He replied, "That's whe the rabbit hides eggs and children search for them and eveyone eats chocolate." St. Peter was again dispointed and told this man to join the first. The third man came up and was asked the question. His response was, "That's when our Lord was hung on the cross. He died and was placed in the tomb. After three days His disciples came and rolled back the stone. He came out, saw His shadow, and we had six more weeks of winter.

Here'a a second joke. Maybe a bit intellectual but you can try it on Governor Jesse.
