You got the technique, Ophelia--it's just that the first one you tried was a video on a web site, not just a YouTube video stand-alone, and so it's a little more tricky to choose the right URL to use. *****! (SERIOUSLY--I typed the word Ya hoo and SR asterisked it!?!? Puh LEAZE...)

Ophelia, you are on a roll here! Go out and buy a lottery ticket while you're at it!

Glad you got things to work. It's nice to have the ability to do things like post videos directly rather than just the link, if that's what you want to do, right?

I’m so sorry you managed to fix it, Ophelia!

I must say one thing on behalf of Barry Manilow: I think his duet with K. T. Oslin of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is the best I’ve ever heard. I love the end!

Mother: Why aren't you talking to Mark anymore?
Son: Well, would you want to talk to someone who is kind of dumb, using drugs and drinking all the time?
Mother: Of course not.
Son: Well, neither would he.
...

A man at a hospital walks up to a guy and says, "how tall are you?"
The guy says, "I'm 5'8", doctor."
The man says, "I'm sorry, I'm not a doctor, I'm a carpenter."

Snoring Solution
The guys were all at a deer camp. No one wanted to room with Bob, because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn’t fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.
The first guy slept with Bob and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot.
They said, “Man, what happened to you?
He said, “Bob snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night.”
The next night it was a different guy’s turn. In the morning, same thing, hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot.
They said, “Man, what happened to you? You look awful!”
He said, “Man, that Bob shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night.”
The third night was Fred’s turn. Fred was a tanned, older cowboy, a man’s man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
“Good morning!” he said.
They couldn’t believe it.
They said, “Man, what happened?”
He said, “Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Bob into bed, patted him on the butt, and kissed him good night. Bob sat up and watched me all night.”

Quick Thinking Boy
There was a boy who worked in the produce section of a market. A man came in and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce. But the man said that he did not need a whole head, only a half.
The boy explained that he would have to ask the manager. So he walked into the back room and said, “There is some jerk out there who wants to buy only a half a head of lettuce.”
As he said it, he turned to find the man standing right behind him. Realizing he had been overheard, the boy quickly added, “and this gentleman wants to buy the other half.”
The manager okayed the request, and the man went on his way. Later, the manager said to the boy, “You almost got yourself in a lot of trouble earlier, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got out of it. You think on your feet, and we like that around here. Where are you from son?”
The boy replied, “Minnesota, sir”.
“Oh, really? Why did you leave Minnesota,” asked the manager.
The boy replied, “They’re all just hookers and hockey players up there.”
“My wife is from Minnesota!”
The boy replied, “Oh Really! What team did she play for?”

I used to have a dog that did magic tricks.
It was a labracadabrador!

Cleaning mirrors is a job I could really see myself doing.

Two fish are in a tank.
One says to the other, "Do you know how to drive this thing?"

I spent five minutes fixing a broken clock yesterday.
At least, I think it was five minutes...

I once made a belt out of clocks.
It was a waist of time.
