a note of levity

From Tony Ellis:

It is hard to find a joke today without a dirty word or two in it, but, here is one:

Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, are growing in the woods. A small tree begins to grow between them and the beech says to the birch, "Is that a son of a beech or a son of a birch?"

The birch says he cannot tell. Just then a woodpecker lands on the sapling. The birch says,"Woodpecker, you are a tree expert. Can you tell if that is a son of a beech or a son of a birch?"

The woodpecker takes a taste of the small tree. He replies, "It is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch. It is, however, the best piece of ash I have
ever put my pecker in."

Now, y'all have a nice day


I did not find this amusing. My mama is a Birch! It is an honorable southern name. ;-) OK... dammit: a semi-honorable southern name.

And he had to go back to (at least) the 1949 to get that one!!! (I was in high school when I first heard it.) Not to say it's not very cute. I thought so at the time.

Here's a joke with no dirty words in it.

Do riddlish jokes count? If so, I just got one via email

Three elderly ladies are excited about seeing their first baseball game.
They smuggle a bottle of Jack Daniels into the ball park.
The game is very exciting and they are enjoying themselves immensely drinking the Jack Daniels.
Soon they realize that the bottle is almost gone and the game has a lot of innings to go.

Based on the given information, what inning is it and how many players are on base?

You seriously do have enough information to answer and you will be angry that you didn't get it.


It's the bottom of the fifth
and the bags are loaded!

Edited somewhat from the original. They were mixing the Jack with soft-drinks.
Never mix your brown liquors with anything but water, boy.
