Business Humor:

A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law. “I love my daughter, and now I welcome you into the family,” said the man. “To show you how much we care for you, I’m making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operations.”

The son-in-law interrupted, “I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise.”

“I see,” replied the father-in-law. “Well, then you’ll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.”

“I hate office work,” said the son-on-law. “I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk all day.”

“Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I just make you half-owner of a moneymaking organization, but you don’t like factories and won’t work in a office. What am I going to do with you?”

“Easy,” said the young man. “Buy me out.”

Grandparent Humor:

Mrs. Smith, an elderly woman, went into the doctor’s office. When the doctor asked why she was there, she replied, “I’d like to have some birth control pills.”Quite surprised, the doctor thought for a minute and then said, “Excuse me, Mrs. Smith, but you’re 75 years old. What possible use could you have for birth control pills?”

The woman responded, “They help me sleep better.”

The doctor thought some more and continued, “How in the world do birth control pills help you to sleep?”

The woman said, “I put them in my granddaughter’s orange juice and I sleep better at night.”

New York farmer accidentally poisons bald eagles, faces jail time

WILSON, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Niagara County farmer could face up to a year in prison and a $100 thousand dollar fine for accidentally poisoning and killing three bald eagles. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Kirk Canfield, 54, from Wilson admits to violating the Federal Bald and Gold Eagle Protection Act when he left poison meat out on his property last year.

Our sister station WIVB reports he was trying to kill coyotes on his property, but started what experts call a deadly cycle. Tanya Lowe from the Hawk Center in Cast Aurora says there’s been a boost in the eagle population in Western New York, with nests popping up along the Niagara River. She says there has been a resurgence here, despite a rise in violations. “The violations have always been there, whether it’s poisoning on purpose, accidental and also poaching,” she said.

Someone driving by on an ATV found the carcasses on the Canfield farm, and took pictures. Lowe says this is a direct violation of the act. She said, “It prohibits anybody without a permit from the Secretary Of The Interior from taking bald or golden eagles. This includes eggs, nests, body parts anything like that,” she said. She saio there is a big human- wildlife interaction problem; and this problem is happening not just here at home, but across the country.

“As human population continues to grow, animal population continues to shrink,” Lowe said. “It’s something that is not just a problem here, but everywhere.”

The Hawk Center has seen firsthand the frustrating amount of abuse.

“We have three bald eagles, two of them were shot. You can’t really mistake an adult bald eagle for anything other than what it is,” Lowe said.

She said what happened in Wilson makes an impact on the bald eagle population as a whole.

“One of the biggest misconceptions that people have is that what one person does doesn’t make a difference in a global scale, because it does,” she said.

Catholic Humor: lolol

A catholic priest and a rabbi find them sitting next to each other on a long journey, and so after some hesitation start to talk to each other. After discussing the weather and the cricket, the priest turns to the rabbi and says that he thought it was rather strange that he was not allowed to eat pork, and asked him whether he ever had.
The rabbi replied, “Well, when I was a small boy, I did in fact taste a small piece of bacon.”
“What was it like?” asked the priest.
The rabbi replied: “Not nearly as good as sex.”
