Two boys are playing football in a vacant lot when one of the boys is attacked by a Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the first little boy rips a board off a nearby fence, and smacks the dog in the head with it, killing him instantly.
A reporter happens by, sees the incident and rushes over to interview the boy. "That was the most incredible act of bravery I've ever seen!" the reporter exclaims. He whips out his notebook and furiously scribbles the headline: "Young Bama Fan Saves Friend From Vicious Animal!"
The little hero sees this and says, "But sir, I'm not a Bama Fan, I'm an Auburn Fan!"
The reporter scowls, flips the page and begins a new headline: "Little Redneck Kills Beloved Family Pet"

ODE TO ARIZONA
The Devil wanted a place on earth.
Sort of a summer home
A place to spend his vacation
Whenever he wanted to roam.
So he picked out Arizona.
and ordered no rain to fall:
He dried up the lakes in the valleys,
Then baked and scorched it all.
Then over this barren desert
He transplanted shrubs from Hell.
The cactus, thistle and prickly pear –
The climate suited them well.
Then he made the rattlesnake.
With its forked and poisonous tongue:
Taught it to strike and rattle
And how to swallow its young.
Then he made Scorpions and Lizards
And the ugly old Horned Toad,
and placed spiders of every description
Under rocks by the side of the road.
"By Golly," he finally panted
"I did my job too well.
I'm going back where I came from
Arizona's hotter than Hell!"

HOW THINGS WOULD BE DIFFERENT IF MICROSOFT WERE LOCATED IN GEORGIA
Walking along the beach, a man found a bottle and opened it.
A genie appeared and said, "For setting me free, I will grant you one wish."
The man thought for a minute and said, "I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but have never been able to because I'm afraid of flying and ships make me seasick. So I wish for a road to be built from here to Hawaii."
The genie said, "No, I don't think I can do that. Just think of all the work involved with the pilings needed to hold up the highway, and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. I’m afraid that’s virtually impossible."
The man then told the genie, "There is one other thing that I have always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women."
The genie considered this for a minute and said, "Do you want two lanes, or four?"

A wicked Chicago man died and went to Hell, where the Devil locked him in a room and cranked up the heat.
The man smiled and said, "Just like Chicago in spring!"
So the Devil cranked up the heat even more. The man smiled and said, "Just like Chicago in June!"
So the Devil cranked the heat to the maximum. The man smiled and said, "Just like Chicago in August!"
The Devil became so annoyed that he shut off the heat and turned on the air conditioning as high as it would go. The room froze in seconds. Ice was everywhere.
The man smiled and said, "Well, I'll be damned! The Cubs won the World Series!”

North Carolina State Motto: Tobacco is a Vegetable
TRUE NEWS STORY:
A North Carolina man purchased a case of very rare, very expensive cigars, and insured them against flood, fire, and theft. Within a month, he'd smoked all the cigars and hadn't made even his first premium payment on the policy.
So he filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the man stated the cigars were lost "in a series of small fires."
The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had smoked the cigars in the normal fashion. The man sued....and won. In delivering the ruling, the judge agreed that the claim was frivolous, but noted that the policy clearly stated that the cigars were insured against fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire."
Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid the man $15,000.
But as soon as the man cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim and his own testimony from the previous case being used against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property, and was sentenced to 2 years in prison and a $24,000 fine.
