Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

'Tis the day before Thanksgiving

... and the butcher is just locking up when a man begins pounding on the front door. "Please let me in," says the man desperately. "I forgot to buy a turkey, and my wife will kill me if I don't come home with one."

"Okay," says the butcher. "Let me see what I have left."

He goes into the freezer and discovers that there is only a single scrawny turkey left. He brings it out to show the man, who winces. "That one is much too skinny. What else do you have?"

So the butcher takes the bird back into the freezer and waits a few minutes, and then he brings the same turkey back out to the man.

"Oh, no," says the man, "That one doesn't look any better. You had better give me both of them."
