Being only a child, he pronounced the city just like it sounds: San Joe-say. The lady tells him, "That's nice, but that isn't how you pronounce it. In California, the letter "J" often sounds like an "H". You meant to say 'San Ho-say'."Later in the conversation, she asks the boy how long he will be staying with his grandparents. He thinks for a moment and replies "For Hune, Huly, and August."

"This is very interesting," replied the doctor. "Let me do some research and get back to you." After examining the elderly lady, the doctor said, "Everything appears to be fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?" The lady replied that she had no questions nor concerns. The doctor then asked, "Your husband had anunusual concern.

A man walks into a small neighborhood bar, and it looks like there is one bar stool available. Just as he reaches the bar stool and gets ready to sit down, he realizes there is a dog laying on it. He says "excuse me" to the man next to the dog, apparently the dog's owner, but the man says "Go ahead, have a seat! Just pick up my dog and put him on the floor."So the first man picks up the dog, and is startled to realize the dog has no legs. He puts the dog back, but the owner says "No, go ahead, put him on the floor! Have a seat!"The first man sits down (he is still feeling a little awkward) and to start a conversation says "So, what's your dog's name?" "Name? Oh! That dog doesn't have a name. Doesn't needs a name. . .after all, he can't come when you call him."
