Some Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy:

I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets

fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why

several of us died of tuberculosis.

I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they chose a king, they

don't just go by size, because I bet there are some Chihuahuas with some

good ideas.

I bet the main reason the police keep people away from a plane crash is

they don't want anybody walking in and lying down in the crash stuff,

then, when somebody comes up, act like they just woke up and go, "What

was THAT?"

The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face.

When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if

they ever press charges.

Most people don't realize that large pieces of coral, which have been

painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a

child look like a deer.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down?

We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is

"God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to

tell him is "Probably because of something you did.

One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take

my little nephew to DisneyLand, but instead I drove him to an old

burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said, "DisneyLand burned down." He

cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty

good joke. I started to drive over to the real DisneyLand, but it was

getting pretty late.

If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you think

liked dolphins the most? I'd say Flippy, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong,

though. It's Hambone.

Laurie got offended when I used the word "puke." But to me, that's what

her dinner tasted like.

Children need encouragement. If a kid gets an answer right, tell him it

was a lucky guess. That way he develops a good, lucky feeling.

I think a good gift for the President would be a chocolate revolver. And

since he is so busy, you'd probably have to run up to him real quick and

give it to him.

The memories of my family outings are still a source of strength to me.

I remember we'd all pile into the car - I forget what kind it was - and

drive and drive. I'm not sure where we'd go, but I think there were some

trees there. The smell of something was strong in the air as we played

whatever sport we played. I remember a bigger, older guy we called

"Dad." We'd eat some stuff, or not, and then I think we went home. I

guess some things never leave you.

Sometimes when I feel like killing someone, I do a little trick to calm

myself down. I'll go over to the person's house and ring the doorbell.

When the person comes to the door, I'm gone, but you know what I've left

on the porch? A jack-o-lantern with a knife stuck in the side of it's

head with a note that says "You." After that I usually feel a lot

better, and no harm done.

I think a mistake a lot of us make is thinking the state-appointed shrink

is our friend.

I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not our

children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

I can't stand cheap people. It makes me real mad when someone says

something like, "Hey, when are you going to pay me that $100 you owe me?"

or "Do you have that $50 you borrowed?" Man, quit being so cheap!

I remember one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was

coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't

I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made

that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a

toy space helmet. You show up for practice and then either steal the

ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at

in appropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I

thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees

something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's

when I felt the handcuffs go on.

To me, it's always a good idea to always carry two sacks of something

when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a

hand?," you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."
