A little boy turned to his grandpa and said, "grandpa, talk like a frog." The Grandpa replied "What?, I'm not going to talk like a frog!" The little boy again asked, "come on, Grandpa talk like a frog please." Grandpa again said "No! Go bother your grandmother." The little boy finally gave up and left.


A little while later the little boy's sister came in and said "Grandpa will you talk like a frog for me?" Grandpa of course replied, "NO!" The little girl then said, "Please grandpa will you talk just like a frog"? Grandpa was very disturbed by now and said, "what is it with you and your brother, why in the world do you want me to talk like a frog?" The little girl looked at her grandpa and said "Well last night daddy told us that when you croak we are going to go to Disney World."

A husband and wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives the husband a big open-mouthed kiss, says she'll see him later and walks away. His wife glares at him and says, "Who the hell was that??" "Oh," replies the husband, "she's my mistress."

"Well that's the last straw," says the wife. "I've had enough, I want a divorce." "I can understand that," replies her husband, "but remember, if we get a divorce it will mean no more shopping trips to Paris, no more wintering in Barbados, no more summers in Tuscany, no more Infiniti or Lexus in the garage and no more yacht club. But the decision is yours."

Just then, a mutual friend enters the restaurant with a gorgeous babe on his arm. "Who's that woman with Jim? " asks the wife. "That's his mistress," says her husband. "Ours is prettier," she replies.

Do you remember the "Student Handbooks"?
