A new young UNC grad calls her
mother in tears.
She sobs, "Robert doesn't appreciate
what I do for him."
"Now, now," her mother comforted,
"I am sure it was all just a misunderstanding."
"No, mother," you don't understand.
"I bought a frozen turkey roll and
he yelled and screamed at me about
"Well, the nerve of that lousy
cheapskate!" says her mom.
"Those turkey rolls are only
a few dollars."
"No, mother it wasn't the price
of the turkey, it was the airplane
"Airplane ticket.... What did you need
an airplane ticket for?"
"Well mother, when I went to fix it,
I looked at the directions on the
package and it said -
'Prepare from a frozen state,'
so I flew to Alaska!"
Dr. Howdy says: "FORWARD TO FRIENDS & YOUR MAMA!"
