Humor from a generous former Asian ambassador
Santa buys a thermos flask
One day SANTA was sitting in his apartment when his doorbell unexpectedly rang. He answered the door and found a salesman standing on his porch with a strange object.
"What is that?" SANTA asked.
"It's a thermos," the salesman replied.
"What does it do?" asked SANTA.
"This baby," the salesman said, "keeps hot things hot and cold things cold."
After some deliberation SANTA bought one, deciding it would really help his lunch situation.
The next day he arrived at the plant where he works. Sure enough, all the other employees were curious about his new object.
"What is it?" they asked.
"It's a thermos," SANTA replied.
"What does it do?" they asked.
"Well," SANTA says in a bragging manner, "It keeps hot things hot and cold things cold."
"What do ya got in it?"
To which SANTA says, "Three cups of coffee and a lolly ice cream."
A woman was bragging to her neighbor about her son, a university student. "Our son is so brilliant, every time we get a letter from him we have to go to the dictionary," said a proud mom.

Lee Trevino, a Mexican-American, who attained his fame as a legendary golfer, had worked his way up from shoe shining and caddying.

Well-known for his biting wit, the man said, ¡°Well, I don¡¯t get in cash. The lady in this house lets me sleep with her.¡±
The woman hurriedly sped off.
