Agent: We're over at the psychiatric hospital.
Pizza Man: The psychiatric hospital?
Agent: That's right. I'm an FBI agent.
Pizza Man: You're an FBI agent?
Agent: That's correct. Just about everybody here is.
Pizza Man: And you're at the psychiatric hospital?
Agent: That's correct. And make sure you don't go through the front doors. We have them locked. You'll have to go around tothe back service entrance to deliver the pizzas.
Pizza Man: And you say you're all FBI agents there?
Agent: That's right. How soon can you have them here?
Pizza Man: Everyone at the psychiatric hospital is an FBI agent?
Agent: That's right. We've been here all day and we're starving.
Pizza Man: How are you going to pay for all of this?
Agent: We've collected a pool of cash.
Pizza Man: And you're all FBI agents?

Agent: That's right.
Now, can you remember to bring the pizzasand sodas to the service entrance in the rear?
We have thefront doors locked.
Pizza Man: You must be crazy!
#4 This fellow is looking to buy a saw to cut down some trees in his back yard. He goes to a chain saw shop and asks about various chain saws.The dealer tells him, "Look, I have a lot of models, but why don't you save yourself a lot of time and aggravation and get the top-of-the-line model. This chain saw will cut a hundred cords of wood for you in one day."So, the man takes the chain saw home and begins working on the trees. After cutting for several hours and only cutting two cords, he decides to quit. He thinks there is something wrong with the chain saw. "How can I cut for hours and only cut two cords?" the man asks himself. "I will begin first thing in the morning and cut all day," the man tells himself.So, the next morning the man gets up at 4 am in the morning and cuts and cuts, and cuts till nightfall, and still he only manages to cut five cords.The man is convinced this is a bad saw. "The dealer told me itwould cut one hundred cords of wood in a day, no problem.I will take this saw back to the dealer," the man says to himself.The very next day the man brings the saw back to the dealer and explains the problem. The dealer, baffled by the man's claim,removes the chain saw from the case. The dealer says, "Hmm, it looks fine."Then the dealer starts the chain saw, to which the man responds,"What's that noise?
#5 Three engineers and three accountants are traveling by train to a conference.At the station, the three accountants each buy tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a single ticket."How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks an accountant. "Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer.They all board the train. The accountants take their respective seats but all three engineers cram into a restroom and close the door behind them.Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says,"Ticket, please."The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand.The conductor takes it and moves on.The accountants saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea.So after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being cleverwith money, and all that). When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip.To their astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket at all."How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed accountant."Watch and you'll see," answers an engineer.When they board the train the three accountants cram into a restroom and the three engineers cram into another one nearby.The train departs.Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves his restroom andwalks over to the restroom where the accountants are hiding.He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."

#7***NOT LAUGHING CAN HURT YOU***
A man tried to keep from laughing when a woman released a"gasser" during a eulogy at a funeral. He held his breath which caused him to pass out...fall off his chair...and bang his head on the floor. Ambulance attendants interrupted the solemn ceremony as they rushed in to whisk the man to the hospital.
