Gone for Cotton

Gone for Cotton

A bill collector knocked on the door of a country debtor. "Is Fred home?" he asked the woman who answered the door. "Sorry," the woman replied. "Fred's gone for cotton."

The next day the collector tried again. "Is Fred here today?" "No, sir," she said, "I'm afraid Fred has gone for cotton."

When he returned the third day he harrumphed, "I suppose Fred is gone for cotton again,?" "No," the woman answered solemnly, "Fred died yesterday."

Suspicious that he was being avoided, the collector decided to wait a week and investigate the cemetery himself. But sure enough, there was poor Fred's tombstone, with this inscription:
"Gone, But Not for Cotton."

Pun Liner of the Day

A scientist was doing a large experiment with liquid chemicals trying to prove his theorem when he fell into the vat and became part of the solution.

One Liner of the Day

It is hard to understand how a cemetery could raise its burial cost and blame it on the cost of living.

Thought for the Day

Today (May 28) is Memorial Day in the US. Those who served in our armed forces gave of themselves, sometimes making the ultimate sacrifice, to protect and ensure our freedom. Take a moment today and thank a veteran, or the family of a deceased veteran, for their service and sacrifice.

If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in the combat zone.
