A cowboy lay sprawled across
three entire seats in the posh
Amarillo Theater. When the usher came by and noticed this,
he whispered to the cowboy, "Sorry, sir, but you're
only allowed one seat."
The cowboy groaned but didn't
budge. The usher became more
impatient. "Sir, if you don't get up from there I'm going
to have to call the manager."
The cowboy just groaned.
The usher marched briskly back up
the aisle, and in a moment he returned with the manager.
Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move the cowboy,
but with no success. Finally, they summoned the police.
The cop surveyed the situation
briefly then asked, "All
right buddy, what's your name?"
"Sam," the cowboy moaned.
"Where ya from, Sam?"
With pain in his voice Sam replied, "The balcony."

A strikingly handsome young man
walked into the office of a
Hollywood agent with his resume and portfolio in hand. The
agent reviewed the young man's slim resume and small port-
folio with the care that was deserving of this fine young
"You have the very obvious good
looks and excellent demeanor
of an actor. Tell me, have you had any roles that I might
be aware of?"
"Other than the requisite high
school and college plays, no
sir," said the handsome young man.
"I dare say I know the reason
why, with a name like yours,"
said the agent.
"Your name. Penis Van Lesbian.
That's not a name that will
go far in Hollywood. I'd love to represent you, but you'll
have to change your name."
"Sir," the handsome young man
protested. "The Van Lesbian
name was my father's, my grandfather's and his father's
name. We have proudly carried this name for generations
and I will not change it for Hollywood or any other reason."
"If you won't change your name,
I cannot represent you,

The Hollywood agent returned

the envelope and removed
the letter. As he unfolded the fine linen paper, a check
dropped from the folds and onto his desk. He looked at
the check. It was for $ 50,000 dollars! He read the letter:
Several years ago, I entered
your office determined to
become an actor. You refused to represent me unless I
changed my name. I objected, saying The Penis Van Lesbian
name had been carried for generations and left your
office. However, upon leaving, I chanced to reconsider my
hastiness and after considerable reflection, I decided to
heed your advice and endeavored to change my name. Now I
am a famous actor with many roles and known to millions
worldwide. Having achieved this fame and fortune, it is
often that I think back to my meeting with you and your
insistence that I change my name. I owe you a debt of
gratitude, so please accept this check with my humble
thanks, for it was your idea, which has brought me to such
wealth and fame.
Very Sincerely Yours,

From: Anonymous Jr. on 5/15/2010
Source: (Removed from articlehealthandfitness.com)
W.C.Fields once said that "Anyone who hates dogs and kids
can't be all bad". That got him a lot of laughs because
people knew that you had to like your friends', relatives'
and neighbors' kids and dogs whether you really did or not.
It was expected back then as it still is today. That means
you had to genuinely like them regardless of what they did
to you--things which should have been stopped and apologized

a barbershop to avoid him. The tenacious fellow went in as
well, and Fields yelled in exasperation, "I've told you no
ten times now. Just to shut you up, I'll put the proposition
to my lawyer next time I see him!"
The salesman pressed, "Will you
take the proper steps if he
says it's alright?"
"I certainly will, "announced
Fields. "I'll ask another lawyer."
