Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I've been reading this quote every day for a week, and every day it makes me grin.

"Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it." :D

My story is brief but I think it's funny.
I went to a local hardware/tire store named after my country (Canada)
I was totally lost as I wondered around the store looking for finish nails.
One of the employees came by and asked my if I needed some help finding something
a man about 18 years old. I asked him if they sold finish nails, he spun around as if going to take me to them and
stopped, then looked at me puzzled and replied no... I think all of our nails are Canadian...

I thanked him and let him go about his business..

A man decides to quit his job and run away to join a pirate crew.

After spending a few hours at the dock, he sees a man who has a peg leg, a hook hand, and an eye patch; the man is obviously a pirate captain. The man promptly joins the captains crew and they ship out to sea that very day.

Later that night, the man walks up to the captain and says “I’m sorry, but I just can’t hold back anymore. How did you get your peg leg?”

The captain says “arr, ‘twas me first day at sea as a young lad. A great big swell came from the sea and knocked me overboard. Before me crew could pull me out, a giant one eyed fish swam up and bit off me leg.”

The man goes “That sounds terrible! What happened to your hand?”

The captain says “arr, ‘twas me second day at sea. Another great big swell came from the sea and knocked me overboard. Before me crew could pull me up, the giant one eyed fish swam up and bit off my hand.”

The man tells the captain it sounds like the fish has it out for him, and asks what happens to his eye.

The Captain says “arr, ‘twas me third day at see. I was looking up at the sky when a bird came and shat in me eye”
The man says “and that’s how you lost your eye?”

The captain responds “no, but twas me first day with the hook”

From the humor - I mean training - department of Genesis Health, a 10-county, bi-state region of the Quad Cities metropolitan area and the surrounding communities of Iowa and Illinois, comes this gem with a hook and a beat.

The proper cleaning technique for ports, sublavians and PICCs. Enjoy!
