“In the world of healthcare, the FDA has approved the first pill with a digital sensor
that signals doctors when patients have taken their medicine. The doctors say they
invented the pill to make sure that their patients are taking their medication. I still
think it would be more effective if they went with my plan of making all pills
taste like Cool Ranch Doritos.” -James Corden
“A Florida man is refusing to give up his ’emotional support squirrel’ even though
his condo association is threatening to evict him. Of course it’s stressful times like
these when the comforting embrace of a squirrel helps the most.” -Seth Meyers
“A federal court just ruled that sharing your Netflix password is now a federal crime.
So if you’ve been looking for a way to send your parents to prison, here’s your chance.” -Jimmy Fallon
G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the “Chicken Surprise”. The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.
Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.
“Good grief, did you see that?” she asks her husband. He hadn’t, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking
around before it slams down..
Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.
“Please sir,” says the waiter, “what did you order?”
The husband replies, “Chicken Surprise.”
“Ah! So sorry,” says the waiter, “I bring you Peeking Duck.”😐
