You asked for funnies for your banquet:....
Okay, there's this scout trying to earn money for summer camp so he decides
to go over to the ritzy part of town where his scoutmaster, Mr. Wilson,
lives and look for odd jobs. He knocks on the door of his scoutmaster's
big Victorian house and when the SM answers the door he asks if he has any
odd jobs that need doing. The SM, wanting to help out the scout says,
"Sure, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge"? The scout,
obviously not having thought about the issue of what he might charge blurts
out, "UH.....ten dollars!" Well, the SM, thinking he's getting a real good
deal says, "Sure! Here's the paint!...be sure you scrape it well before
painting" and goes back in the house. A few minutes later, the SM decides
to check on the progress but when he steps outside, the scout is walking up
from the yard. The scout says, "All done....I even had enough paint to
give it two coats! But you know Mr. Wilson, that's a Jaguar, not a Porche"!
