Never talk too much about too little.

The Earrings
My friend Dan and I were having dinner at Bandido's, my favorite Mexican restaurant, when a college basketball player came in. After looking him over, Dan wondered, "How in the heck can a college freshman afford a thousand dollar pair of earrings?"
"Oh him," I said, motioning at the player with my head. "He plays for Ohio State!"

The Prize
Since the winner for excellence in journalism, literature, or music, is awarded the Pulitzer Prize; does the winner for excellence in organ playing win the Wurlitzer Prize?

The Passing
Have you noticed that more people either pass away, or just plain pass than die? Others go home to the Lord, or to their eternal reward. I can only surmise, but I believe some also go to a very hot place. Of course, that is never mentioned in the obituaries.
Now please tell me, what is so terrible about saying John Smith died, because isn't that what he did?
When I go, I hope my obituary tells it like it is and says Jim Schindler died; as soon as the word got around, the celebration began.
