Bear Removal Strategy But Safety First

A homeowner in Alberta wakes up one morning to find a bear on her roof. She looks in the yellow pages and finds an ad for "Albertan Bear Remover."

So she calls the number and a man says he'll be over in 30 minutes. The bear remover arrives and gets out of his van. He's got with him a ladder, a baseball bat, a 12-gauge shotgun and a mean looking pit bull terrier.

"How does this work? What are you going to do with all those?" the homeowner asks.

"I'm going to put this ladder up against the roof. Then I'm going to go up and I'll knock the bear off the roof with this baseball bat, and when the bear falls off the roof, the pit bull is trained to seize it by the testicles and not let go. The bear will gradually become subdued enough for me to lock him up in the cage in the back of the van."

Then he hands the shotgun to the homeowner. "What's the shotgun for?" asks the homeowner.

"That's for you. If the bear knocks me off the roof, shoot the dog."

Bank The Ring, Ring The Bank

A balding, white haired man walked into a jewelry store in Beverly Hills last Friday evening with a beautiful much younger girl at his side.

He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.' At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over.

'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000' the jeweler said.

The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.'

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated,

'By check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick up the ring Monday afternoon.'

On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said, 'There was only $25 in your account.'

'I know, said the old man, 'But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!'
