Hallmark Cards You’ll Never See…….
“Looking back over the years that we’ve been together, I can’t help but wonder: What was I thinking?”
As the days go by, I think of how lucky I am…that you’re not here to ruin it for me.
You had your bladder removed
and you’re on the mends,
here’s a bouquet of flowers
and a box of Depends.
“Congratulations on your wedding day! Too bad no one likes your wife.”
“How could two people as beautiful you have such an ugly baby?”
hope you feel zippy
’cause when I had mine
I got real snippy.
“If I get only one thing for Christmas, I hope it’s your sister.”
“I’ve always wanted to have someone to hold, someone to love. After having met you, I’ve changed my mind.”
“I must admit, you brought religion in my life. I never believed in Hell until I met you.”
“As you grow older, Mom, I think of all the gifts you’ve given me, like the need for therapy.”
“Congratulations on your promotion. Before you go, would you like to take this knife out of my back? You’ll probably need it again.”
Heard your wife left you.
How upset you must be.
But don’t fret about it,
she moved in with me.
“Someday I hope to get married, but not to you.”
“Happy Birthday! You look great for your age—almost lifelike!”
“When we were together, you always said you’d die for me. Now that we’ve broken up,
I think it’s time you kept your promise.”
“I’m so miserable without you, it’s almost like you’re here.”
“Congratulations on your new bundle of joy. Did you ever find out who the father was?”
“You are such a good friend that if we were on a sinking ship and there was only one
life jacket–I’d miss you a lot and think of you often.”
“We have been friends for a very long time, what say we call it quits.”
“Your friends and I wanted to do something special for your birthday—so we’re having you put to sleep.”
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a wonderful Wednesday people and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

A group of psychiatrists were attending a convention. Four of them decided to leave, and walked out together. One said to the other three, “People are always coming to us with their guilt and fears, but we have no one that we can go to when we have problems.” The others agreed.
Then one said, “Since we are all professionals, why don’t we take some time right now to hear each other out?”
The other three agreed.
The first then confessed, “I have an uncontrollable desire to kill my patients.”
The second psychiatrist said, “I love expensive things and so I find ways to cheat my patients out of their money whenever I can so I can buy the things I want.”
The third followed with, “I’m involved with selling drugs and often get my patients to sell them for me.”
The fourth psychiatrist then confessed, “I know I’m not supposed to, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t keep a secret…”

Clue: A character in a courtroom.
An appeal, in law jargon, is the request to change a ruling made by one court. Often appeals are filed in higher courts that have the ability to reverse rulings made by lower courts.

The appellee won the case in the lower court and wants the ruling to stay unchanged.
