Joke of the week
  1. A man walks into a library and asks the librarian for books about paranoia. She whispers, "They're right behind you!"

  2. Want to hear a roof joke? The first one's on the house.

  3. What should you do if you're attacked by a group of clowns? Go straight for the juggler.

  4. Why don't koalas count as bears? They don't have the right koalafications.

  5. A cement mixer and a prison bus crashed on the highway. Police advise citizens to look out for a group of hardened criminals.

"Some people eat snails. They must not like fast food."
