"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    What time does the library open?" the man on the phone asked.
    "Nine A.M." came the reply. "And what's the idea of calling me at home in the middle of the night to ask a question like that?"
    "Not until nine A.M.?" the man asked in a disappointed voice.
    "No, not till nine A.M.!" the librarian said. "Why do you want to get in before nine A.M.?"
    "Who said I wanted to get in?" the man sighed sadly. "I want to get out." :| oh my god. :(

    The man replied: "I never saw one, my work does not allow it."

    This is not funny.but a fool thing I think

    "brothers jointly owned a business and both were wise in worldly ways. While dying, one brother instructed his sibling to put half of their combined wealth into the grave with the casket. The brother reluctantly agreed. In time his brother died. At the graveside ceremony the living brother wrote a check for half of their assets and placed it in the casket."

    That's funny and clever.. because he did as he was asked, without actually having to lose any money by doing it.

    That is very funny. I have heard some similar jokes. I do think it is nice to kiss your partner before you go out, though! I always do the same.

    That's funny - and an interesting play on words, too. I'm sure that's a word that lots of people will be looking up once they have read your post!

    A woman asks her husband, who was going to fish yesterday: "How many fish did you catch yesterday?" The man replies very proudly: "They were six very large ones;" And the woman replies: "I can believe that when I see the account of the fishmonger!"

    A couple who have been together for more than 40 years, the woman feels that she receives too little attention from her husband and she decides to do something about it.
    And before they go to bed, she sprinkles with perfume, but the man gets into bed and does not react. The next day, the woman tries to show off striking red @!~* lingerie, but there is no response from the man at all.
    Until the woman the next day finally stands naked for her husband, and he spontaneously says: "But why are you wearing a not ironed dress now?"

    I think it is such a shame that young people growing up today spend their lives plugged into games consoles, as they are missing out on so much that is happening around them.

    A nouveau riche Russian is listenining to music through headphones sitting at the fireplace with his feet on it.
    His wife walks in: ‘what are you listening, darling?’
    ‘This is Tchaikovsky, the 1st piano concerto.’
    ‘Then why does this CD box read ‘Led Zeppelin III?’
    ‘Oh, sugar! I always mix them up!’
