SUNDAY FUNNIES: GOING FOURTH

Hello Everybody! The Free Choice E-zine's Editor-In-Chief Lee Houston, Junior here with you today.
Yesterday was July 4, so the ladies have the rest of this weekend off as America celebrates its 244th birthday.🎂

Now, a lot has been said about this country. Good, bad, and indifferent; factual and outright lies since its origins.
Unfortunately no place is totally 100% perfect, but as long as we keep trying, hopefully we'll get it right eventually.

But I'm not here to editorialize, so let's get on with the jokes.

What quacks, has a bill and shouldn’t be trusted?
Beneduck 🦆Arnold.

What do you get if you cross a patriotic American with a small curly-haired dog?
Yankee Poodle.🐩

Which American colonists told the most riddles?
Puns-ylvanians.

Which letter is the coolest on the 4th of July?
Iced T.

What do you call a snowman⛄ on the 4th of July?
A puddle.

How do pandas🐼 stay cool on Independence Day?
They use bear conditioning.

What did the baby firecracker say to its mother?
"Where's Pop?"🧨

Where was the Declaration of Independence signed?
On the bottom.

Why did Paul Revere ride from Boston to Lexington?
Because the horse🐎 was too heavy to carry.

What did King George think of the American colonists back in the 1770s?
He thought they were revolting!

What do you call an American revolutionary who draws cartoons?
Yankee Doodler.

I put a picture of the USA in a heart💖 shaped locket to celebrate the 4th of July.
Now it's truly independent.

It is quite ironic that on the 4th of July, some of the American flags we wave were made in China.

Some swimming pools will re-open for the 4th of July weekend but due to social distancing, there will be no water in lanes one, three and five.

Anyway, there may not seem to be a whole lot to celebrate right now with the pandemic, racial tension, and the other problems facing this country and the world.
But if you're reading these words at the moment, then that means you're still alive, and that's a start!😉
On that note♫, take care, try to have a great week. STAY SAFE and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—lh,jr.

SUNDAY FUNNIES: GARDEN GRIPES

Hello Everybody! Waxy Dragon here!

Now, like most young children, this baby companion dragon is NOT having a good time during this pandemic.😷
Dragon School is only online. I can't see my friends unless we telecommute. Bubblehead, the human I live with, won't tell me where he's hidden the Belgosian Dark Chocolate🍫 this time.
You get the idea.

Anyway, I know all the doctors and scientists around the world are doing what they can to fight this COVID-19 virus and eventually find a vaccine, let alone a cure, but I've got to tell you one thing right now.
Waxy's drawing of Bubblehead

It better NOT involve Brussel Sprouts!🚫

Let's be honest with each other here folks. I'm basically a kid, that's a vegetable, and what kid likes vegetables?

In any event, it was a long time to reach this point, but here are some vegetable jokes for a nice change of pace.

Why did the grape🍇 stop in the middle of the road?
Because he ran out of juice.

What vegetables are a sailor's worst enemy?
Leeks!

Why did the tomato🍅 blush?
Because he saw the salad dressing. 😉

Why aren’t bananas🍌 ever lonely?
Because they hang out in bunches!

Why do potatoes🥔 always argue with each other?
Because they can never see eye to eye.

Do salads🥗 win awards when they go above and beyond the kale of duty?

You know. I just realized something.
I've got TWO green thumbs!🖒
Maybe I should try my paws at gardening.
Does anyone know where I can find bacon, candy, and chocolate seeds?

And on that note♫, take care everybody!
STAY SAFE!😷
And please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!wd.
