The worst part about breaking up right before Halloween is now I have to explain at every party why I’m dressed as half of a horse.


Halloween is my favorite holiday, where you can trespass on a stranger’s property and make a nonnegotia­ble demand.

COP: Step out of the car, sir.


A woman and her husband stop at a dentist’s office.

“I need a tooth pulled right away,” she says. “Don’t bother with the Novocain; we’re in a hurry.”

“Which tooth do you want pulled?” asks the dentist.

The woman shoves her husband toward the dentist. “Go ahead, dear. Show him your tooth.”


A patient tells a psychiatri­st that he’s convinced there’s somebody living under his bed.

“Visit me for three days a week at $300 a visit, and you’ll be cured,” the psychiatri­st assures him.

The price tag is a little rich for the patient, so he says he’ll think about it.

Six months later, the two meet on the street. “Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were

having?” asks the psychiatri­st.

“Because a bartender cured me for only $10.” “How?”

“He told me to cut the legs off the bed.”

The priest looks at the bottle and shouts, “Good Lord! He’s done it again!”
