The Ass
My friend, Fritz, made a not so funny comment.
When I looked at him, he said, “I was just being a wise ass.”
“You might be an ass,” I replied, “but you’re not that wise.”

Juan’s Brother
On Saturday mornings I meet my son John, along with a couple of other friends for breakfast.
The cashier is a young man named Juan.
His brother also works there, but I didn’t know his name, so I said, “Juan, is your brother’s name Two?”
“No, what made you ask that?”
“You know Juan and Two.”
He thought that was a good Juan I thought it was Two!
