   My first job was working in a juice factory,
    but I got canned . . . couldn't concentrate.
   Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack...
    I couldn't hack it; they gave me the axe.
   After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't
    suited for it. Mostly 'cause it was a so-so job.
   Next I tried working in a muffler factory but you know,
    that was exhausting.
   Wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn't cut it...
   Then I tried to be a chef - figured it would add a
    little spice to my life but I just didn't have the thyme.
   Next, I found being an electrician interesting,
    but the work was shocking.
   And I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I
    really didn't have any patients.
   I became a professional fisherman, but discovered
    that I couldn't live on my net income.
   I managed to get a good job working for a pool
    maintenance company, but the work was just too
   I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was
    fired from there, because I wasn't up to it.
   Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker, but any
    way I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.
   After many years of trying to find steady work
    Ifinally got a job as an historian... until I
    realized there was just no future in it.
   My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to
    quit because it was always the same old grind

A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen and this kitchen is delirious.

No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

A husband is someone who takes out the trash and gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house.

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.

Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.

A clean house is a sign of a misspent life.

Countless number of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives.

My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines.

 Funny, I don't remember being absent minded.

 All reports are in. Life is now officially unfair.

 If all is not lost, where is it?

 I tried to get a life once, But they told me they were
out of stock.

 I went to school to become a wit, only got halfway though.

 It was so different before everything changed.

I wish the buck stopped here! I could use a few.

 Kids in the back seat cause accidents; accidents in the
back seat cause kids.

 Some day's you're the dog, and some day's you're the

 Nostalgia isn't what it use to be.

 A day without sunshine is like a day in Seattle.

 It's not the pace of life that concerns me, it's the
sudden stop at the end.

 It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been
