    Hey now, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not fans! Ready for a genie joke? An older unmarried lady found an odd looking bottle, gave it the proverbial rub and yep. You got it! With a Poof, a genie popped out and offered the usual three wishes. The lady said, “First of all, I want to be gorgeous! Drop dead, eat-your-heart-out, fabulously gorgeous” and Poof! She is! “Next” said the lady, “I want a million dollars!” and Poof! There was a bank statement showing the lady now had $1million in her account. “And finally” the lady said to the genie, “I’d like you to turn my cat, Fluffy, into an Adonis! A movie star! The handsomest man you can imagine!” And Poof! There was the Adonis she described, and even more handsome to boot! “Fluffy!” she cried out. “Is that really you???” “Sure is, Babe!”, Fluffy replied. “Sorry you got me fixed?” BADABOOM! See you Rippers later. Here’s to a good week. I’ll see you in due time. Silver. Out.

    Gambling was still illegal in the small town where the priest, the minister, and the rabbi held their weekly poker games. One night (a week or so after they were surprised while skinnydipping) they were raided, and the constable said, “I’m astonished – the priest of my parish gambling!”

    “I wasn’t gambling, Constable,” the priest lied, knowing he could confess and be absolved.

    “What about you, Preacher? Were you gambling?”

    “Of course not, Constable,” the minister answered, knowing Jesus forgave sins such as lying.

    “And what about you, Rabbi? You were gambling, weren’t you?”

    The Rabbi answered, “With who

    It was illegal to sell booze but not illegal to drink it, right?

    That’s why you should always discard your footwear by tying the laces together and hanging them over a power line.

    How on Earth do you date a footprint?

    There should be a comma after Yorkshire. As it is, the statement is saying that the footprint was made while she was collecting seashells.

    Has anyone even come across a shoe that was decomposed from the year 1021? I mean, how does one know they decompose in a 1,000-year span?

    Tell ’em to make shoes better quality. They seem to fall apart in about 6 months time.

    I think it was also legal to manufacture in your home for your own consumption. I had an uncle who was involved in Prohibition shenanigans on the border with Mexico. My grandfather was on a first name basis with the police chiefs of both El Paso and Juarez, and he lived a couple of hundred miles away in north Texas!

    Not illegal to DRINK alcohol. Just illegal to buy it, sell it, or to be in possession of it.

    So if I decide that I regret tossing out that pair of shoes, I know where I can find them.

    My grandmother would buy grape juice concentrate from Napa or Sonoma county during Prohibition. Each bottle came with a label warning to not do certain things in a certain order otherwise you might be making wine. Ah, the days of lax label legislation..

    Actually it’s impressive to find a footprint that large closeup, when you’re usually focused on looking at small things. Its a “forest through the tress” thing

    So, they came to the conclusion that it takes up to 1000 years to break down because they can’t find anyone that lived more than 1000 years that has any shoes???

    And, as I remember it, when they passed laws against Marijuana, they did not make possession of it illegal, if you purchased a “license”, and the Government only issued licenses to a select few, like for Government Scientific Research, etc.

    When Crocs were very popular, I read they are made with material that can’t be recycled. When worn out, they either went to a landfill or the county incinerator.

    There’s a similar situation with incandescent lights: Except for specialty lights, it’s illegal to manufacture or sell incandescent lights in the United States. But, it’s not illegal to use them.

    Now how do they know that about shoes? Did they go back in time and bury a pair and return to today and dig them up?
