Two older ladies were
sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in
progress. One leaned over and said, "Life is so boring. We never have any fun
anymore. For $5.00 I'd take my clothes off right now and streak through that
stupid flower show!" "You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $5.00
bill. As fast as she could, the first little old lady fumbled her way out of
her clothes and, completely naked, streaked through the front door of the flower
show. Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall,
followed by loud applause. The naked lady burst out through the door surrounded
by a cheering crowd. "What happened?" asked her waiting friend. "Why, I won
first prize for Best Dried Arrangement."

Girl Potato and Boy
Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married and had a little
sweet potato, which they called 'Yam.' Of course, they wanted the best for
When it was time, they told her about the facts of life. They warned her
about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed,
and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of
Tater Tots. Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into the sack and make
a rotten potato out of her! But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and
become a Couch Potato either. She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be
skinny like her Shoestring cousins.
When she went off to Europe, Mr and Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for
the hard-boiled guys from Ireland, and the greasy guys from France called the
French Fries. Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't
associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of
the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'
Mr. and Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University) so
that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips. Yet, in spite of all they
did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom
Brokaw. Tom Brokaw! Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset. They told Yam she
couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just a commentator

plate, he said, "It's about time. At last, a home-cooked meal!"

The florist across town sees a huge drop in sales and asks the two friars to
close their shop, but they refuse.
A month later the florist begs the friars to close because he’s having trouble
feeding his family. Again, they refuse, so the florist hires Hugh
Hugh is the roughest, toughest thug in town and is hired to “persuade” the
friars to close.
Hugh asks the friars to close their florist shop. When they refuse, he
threatens to beat the crap out of them and wreck their shop every day they
remain open, so they close.
This proves once again that Hugh and only Hugh can prevent florist friars. ~
