"Saul, I have some good news, and I have some bad news."
The art collector replied, "I’ve had an awful day. Give me the good news first."
The lawyer said, "Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed me that she just invested $5,000 in two pictures that she thinks will bring a minimum of $15 million to $20 million, and I think she could be right."
Saul replied enthusiastically, "Well done! My wife is a brilliant businesswoman! You’ve just made my day. Now I know I can handle the bad news. What is it?"
The lawyer replied, "The pictures are of you and your secretary."
A pirate walked into a bar and the bartender said, "Hey, I haven’t seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible."
"What do you mean?" said the pirate, "I feel fine."
"What about the wooden leg? You didn’t have that before."
"Well," said the pirate, "We were in a battle, and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I’m fine now."
The bartender replied, "Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?"
The pirate explained, "We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight.
My hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook but I’m fine, really."
"What about that eye patch?"
"Oh," said the pirate, "One day we were at sea and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up and one of them shit in my eye."
"You’re kidding," said the bartender. "You couldn’t lose an eye just from bird shit."
"It was my first day with the hook."

Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him.
He had not been to church in 10 years.
After Mass, the priest caught up with him and said, “

I know that McGlynn had a hat just like mine and I knew he came to church every Sunday.. I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass and figured he would leave it in the back of church. So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn’s hat."
The priest said, "Well, Murphy, I notice that ya didn’t steal McGlynn’s hat.

Murphy replied, "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 Commandments, I decided that I didn’t need to steal McGlynn’s hat after all."
