The small one turns to the big one and says, "I don't understand how you can be so much bigger than I am. We're the same age, we were the same size as kids... I just don't get it." "Well," says the big alligator, "what have you been eating?" "Lawyers, same as you," replies the small alligator. "Hmm. Well, where do you catch 'em?" "Down at that law firm on the edge of the swamp." "Same here. Hmm. How do you catch 'em?" "Well, I crawl under a BMW and wait for someone to unlock the door. Then I jump out, bite 'em, shake the crap out of 'em, and eat 'em!" "Ah!" says the big alligator, "I think I see your problem. See, by the time you get done shakin' the crap out of a lawyer, there's nothing left but lips and a briefcase..." Pick Ups 97 F250 Power Stroke Diesel with new tires. $8,000.

Born as CONTAINER SALES & RENTALS 5 Over breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, “I bet you don’t know what day it is today.” “Of course I do,” he answered indignantly, as he slammed the door and drove to the office. At 11 am, the door bell rang. The wife opened the door and there was a UPS driver with a box containing 12 red roses in his hand. Later, at 2 pm, there was another knock at th door, and this time it was a box of Belgium chocolates. When the husband came home, tired after a hard days work, his wife greeted him by saying, “First the flowers, then the chocolates. I have never had a more wonderful Ground Hog day in my life!” It’s Ground Hog Day Monday, February 2nd! In the Houston Industrial Park. 250 845 2882 Visit Our Showroom Today!

While he was tinkering with his machine, he noticed the Scotsman and his wife watching with a great deal of curiosity. The Scotsman asked the pilot how much he would charge to give both he and his wife a ride. 'Well', said the pilot, 'Normally I charge $50 dollars each, but if you are both completely quiet throughout the flight, the ride will be free of charge. If I hear the least amount of noise, you will owe the full fare.' The couple quickly climbed aboard, and the pilot taxied and took off. Immediately, he proceeded to put his plane through all of its paces: barrel rolls, stalls, spins, split S maneuvers, you name it and he did it. The couple in back were completely silent throughout the thirty minute flight. Upon landing, the pilot said, 'I really have to hand it to you for keeping quiet through all that!' 'Aye', said the Scotsman, 'but I'll admit, ye almost heard me when the wife fell out.' Two Scotsmen met 25 years after their last get-together. They hugged and slapped each others back and tears formed in their eyes as they renewed their old friendship. "Let's have a drink like we did in the old days," the first Scot winked at his mate. "Aye," his mate replied. "And don't forget it's your shout." A Scottish cop was asked how he'd break up a crowd.. He answered, "I'd take up a collection!"
