to wake them, he gingerly stepped over  them.  Immediately, he was arrested and charged with–transporting gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.

 

5.  Back in the 1800’s the Tate’s Watch Company of Massachusetts   wanted to produce other products, and since they already made the  cases for watches, they used them to produce compasses.  The new  compasses were so bad that people often ended up in Canada or Mexico   rather than California .  This, of course, is the origin of the  expression “He who has a Tate’s is lost!”

 

6.  A thief broke into the local police station and stole all the  toilets and urinals, leaving no clues.  A spokesperson was quoted as  saying, “We have absolutely nothing to go on.”

 

7.  An Indian chief was feeling very sick, so he summoned the medicine  man. After a brief examination, the medicine man took out a long, thin  strip of elk rawhide and gave it to the chief, telling him to bite  off, chew, and
