"Vaughn Meader, who gained instant fame satirizing the presidency of John F. Kennedy in the multimillion-selling album "The First Family," died Friday at the age of 68. When it came out in late 1962, poking gentle fun at JFK's wealth, large family and "vigah," "The First Family" became the fastest-selling record of its time, racking up 7.5 million copies and winning the Grammy for album of the year.

Compared with today's bare-knuckled political humor, the satire was tame, but it tickled the funnybone of the Kennedy-obsessed public."

Sinc, imitation is a show of respect. Just ask Uncle Miltie.

Twenty-eight years ago, Herman James, a Tennessee Mountain man, was drafted by the Army.

On his first day of boot camp, the Army issued him a toothbrush. That afternoon, an Army dentist yanked several of his teeth.

On his second day, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon, an Army barber sheared his head.

On his third day, he was issued a jock strap.
The Army is still looking for him.

I heard a variation of this joke when I was teaching in Waycross, Georgia. Back then, the man came from near where I was teaching, the Okeefenokee Swamp.

In Africa, every morning a gazelle awakens knowing that it must outrun the fastest lion if it wants to stay alive. Every morning, a lion wakes up knowing it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

Moral of the story:
It makes no difference whether you are a gazelle or a lion: When the sun comes up, you had better be hauling ass.

Cheers

A married couple in their early 60s were out celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.

Suddenly, a tiny fairy appeared at their table and said, "For being such an exemplary married couple, and for being faithful to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish."

"Ooh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband," said the wife.

The fairy moved her magic stick and said, "Abracadabra!" Two tickets for the new QE2 luxury liner appeared in her hands.

Now, it was the husband's turn. He thought for a moment and said, "Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this only occurs once in a lifetime, so, I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me."

The wife and fairy were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish...

So the fairy made a circle with her magic stick and - abracadabra! - the husband became 92 years old.

Sinc, some were funny, some merely interesting. However, "HOW TO BUILD YOUR OWN AIRPLANE - by John Denver" was in bad taste. We could use a bit of his humanity and environmentalism just now. Just one man's opinion, my friend.
