A fellow is driving in the country and notices a farmer holding a large sow pig in an apple orchard. As he comes to a stop he notices the farmer is hefting this large pig up to the branch of a tree so the pig can take an apple in it's mouth. The farmer continues to hold the pig as it eats the apple and then uses all his strength to lift the sow to another apple on the branch. Amazed at the what he has witnessed the fellow parks his car and walks over to the farmer. Driver: "I couldn't help but notice all effort you're putting in to feeding that pig."Farmer: "Yeah I really like this sow. She's one of my best."Driver: "Well it seems there might be a more efficient way to get the apples to her. What if you set her on the ground and shook the apples from the tree? She could eat them off the ground. Just think of all the time that would be saved."Farmer: "Your probably right, but what's time to a pig?"

Fred seemed to use his last bit of energy to scribble something before he had a final spasm and died.The pastor thought it best not to look at Fred's note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket.The same pastor officiated at Fred's fuineral a couple days later. As he was finishing the service, he realized he was wearing the same jacket he had been wearing when Fred died. He said, "You know, Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm quite sure there's a word of inspiration there for all of us."He opened the note, and read, "MOVE . . . you're standing on my oxygen tube!"

Ole was in visiting at the new bank building, and to meet up with his banker he had to get into one of the elevators and head up to the 16th floor. The elevator went up two floors, stopped, and in walked beautiful and, for the most part, unapproachable, Leina. She smiled sideways at him with a coquettish look, and before the elevator even started on its way up, she had pressed the stop button. She then turned to Ole and said in throaty tones through beautiful pouty lips, "Ole, now's your chance to really make me feel like a woman." Without any more encouragement than that, Ole husked off all his clothes and tossed them in the corner. Then, with a knowing look in his eyes, and a bit of a smile turning on his face, Ole turned to Leina and whispered, "fold my clothes."
