They do everything at Wal-Mart these days.

Item 1:
I was at a restaurant the other day and a friend asked if I'd mind picking up the check.  Naturally, I obliged.  But, the only person that even remotely resembled a Czechoslovakian was a large, blondheaded man in a corner booth and he didn't seem to enjoy the experience at all.  And neither did his wife and kids.  They ran screaming into the night.

It never fails.  Any time I try to do a good deed, it ends up with "Hello, officer".  I've spent more time in handcuffs than Charlie Sheen's escorts.

Item 2:
My parents wanted grandkids in the worst way but I told them I didn't want to get married.  I explained that it would be more fun to play the field so, they put me in one.  It was a ten-acre plot with a tall fence, gardening implements and several bewildered tourists.  I spent sixth grade in there.  I was lonely but, chasing the Pakistani pilgirm around with a ham bone helped kill the time.  Fortunately, nobody ever noticed the grave-like mound.  And the tomatoes grew like crazy there.

Item 3:
My doctor says I've got to control my diet.  But, I don't know why.  I eat like a bird.  A condor.  And I keep the highway clean.  However, I decided to make an effort because he's such a grouch when I don't.  For breakfast, I ate a small bowl of caterpillar soup and graham crackers dipped in jellied cabbage juice.  For lunch, I had a small snow leopard casserole and celery.  But, he still wasn't happy.  I think it was the Virginia ham smothereed in chocolate sauce I had for supper.  I tell you, there's no pleasing the man.

Item 4:
As you might have guessed, my body is falling apart so I decided to take advantage of what medical science has to offer.  I got a tummy tuck, a face lift and a general body makeover.  They were on sale at Wal-Mart.  My surgeon, Sing Yow, noted that tucking a tummy like mine was going to be more like field dressing a buffalo but he would give it a shot anyway.  I've never seen a person sweat like that before.  He was grunting like a gnat towing a Hummer.

As to the face lift, he ended up having to employ a tripod used for lifting engine blocks.  It broke down three times.

By the time I was finished, I had a flat tummy, skin tighter than a base drum in a Macy's parade and an expression of perpetual shock.  Plus, there was a bonus.......double-d breasts and a third eye.  There was some sort of special on.

Item 5:
I finally found the perfect girlfriend.  Andrea.  She's quiet and very agreeable.  She seems to understand me and doesn't complain at all when I bring my pack of pet coyotes along on a date.  Also, she's yet to tazer me, cut me, run over me, scream, faint or call the FBI.  She's perfect.  Well actually, she's dead.

No, I'm not carrying around a mummified body.  What kind of person do you think I am?  Besides, it was only once and got her back before the burial.  Boy, some people have no sense of humor at all.

But, Andrea is different.  She was cremated and put in a jar in the shape of Marilyn Monroe.  What a babe.  She was seriously considering a Joy Bahar jar but then, she would have spent most of her Saturdays sitting on a shelf, unloved.  No fun in that.

I explained it to my psychiatrist, Dr. Demonic and he said I have the social graces of steamed goat entrails and honor him with the unbridled joy of a jalapeno enema.  Obviously, he was in a bad mood so I thought he might want to go in the bathroom and play with my boa constrictor, Mr. Pinkie.  It sure is quiet in there.

Shhhhh.  They're probably napping.

You know, psychiatrists aren't known for their sense of humor, so I wouldn't take ANYTHING that man said to heart.
