Joke of the Day..

Phil goes on vacation to Europe and leaves his favorite dog, Max, with his younger brother James. While in Europe, Phil calls James to check on his dog, and asks: "So, James, how's my Max doing?"

James very tersely says, "Your dog is dead."

"What!?" says Phil, astonished. "You can't just tell someone that his favorite dog is dead without a warning! You have to ease him into it."

"How?" asks James.

"Well, the first day I call, tell me my dog is on the roof," remarked Phil. "Then tell me the dog is going to be fine and not to worry. The next day, when I call to ask about my dog, tell me that you were about to get her down, when she jumped off of the roof and broke her leg. Tell me the doctors say the dog will be okay, but it will have to stay at the vet's for a while. Are you getting all of this?"

"Yes," says James"

"Good," remarks Phil. "Then the next day, when I call back, tell me that there was severe internal bleeding that the vet didn't pick up, and that my favorite dog died at 2:00 this morning. That way it won't be such a shock to me. Got it?"


"Good, so, how's Grandma doing?" asks Phil.

"Well," James replies, "She's on the roof...."

Hey, Eric, that's a great one. Is that from Capricorn One? You know, where Sam Waterson is climbing the cliff and finds the government goons at the top waiting for him...
