Cow on train tracks

A passenger train is creeping along, slowly.

Finally, it creaks to a halt. A passenger sees a conductor walking by outside.

“What’s going on?” she yells out the window.

“Cow on the track!” replies the conductor.

Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace.

Within five minutes, however, it stops again.

The woman sees the same conductor walk again.



She leans out the window and yells, “What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again?”

A man takes the ferry home from work

John Smith lived in Staten Island, New York, and worked in Manhattan.

He had to take the ferryboat home every night. One evening, he got down to the ferry and found there was a wait for the next boat, so John decided to stop at a nearby tavern. Before long he was feeling no pain.

When he got back to the ferry slip, the ferryboat was just eight feet from the dock. Smith, afraid of missing this one and being late for dinner, took a running leap and landed right on the deck of the boat.

“How did you like that jump, buddy?” said a proud John to a deck hand.



“It was great,” said the sailor. “But why didn’t you wait? We were just pulling in!”
