Knock Knock February
16 - A young man who was also an avid golfer found himself with a few
hours to spare one afternoon. He figured if he hurried and played very
fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home. Just as he
was about to tee off an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if
he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able
to say no, he allowed the old gent to join him.
To his surprise the old man played fairly quickly. He didn't hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn't waste much time. Finally, they reached the 9th fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot. There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball - and directly between his ball and the green.
After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot the old man finally said, "You know, when I was your age I'd hit the ball right over that tree."
With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a foot from where it had originally lay.
The old man offered one more comment, "Of course, when I was your age that pine tree was only three feet tall."

9 - A Texan was taking a taxi tour of
London and was in a hurry. As they went by the Tower of London the cabby
explained what it was and that construction started in 1346 and it was
completed in 1412.
The Texan replied, "Shoot, a little ol' tower like that? In Houston we'd have that thing up in two weeks!"
The cab passed the House of Parliament next, the cabby stating that it started construction in 1544 and was completed 1618.
"Boy, we put up a bigger one than that in Dallas and it only took a year!"
As they passed Westminster Abbey the cabby was silent.
"Whoa! What's that over there?" asked the Texan.
"Darned if I know, wasn't there yesterday..."

hotcakes in New York.
Democrats put them on the back bumper. Everyone else puts them on the front.
