LONG:
The Alligator Shoes
A young blonde, Zoe, was on vacation in June in the depths of Louisiana. She badly wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes but was very reluctant to pay the sky-high prices the particular vendors wanted. After getting very frustrated with the attitude of one bumbling, skinflint shopkeeper, the blonde shouted: 'I think maybe I'll just go now and catch myself an alligator so that I can get some shoes at a reasonable, worthwhile price!'
The shopkeeper said, 'Oh, be my guest. Maybe you will catch a big one!'
Determined, the blonde turned and headed North for the swamps, set on catching an alligator.
~
Later, the shopkeeper was driving home, when he spotted poor Zoe ahead, standing uncomfortably waist deep in water, a shotgun in hand. Just then, he saw a huge, savage-toothed alligator, ten foot big, swimming rapidly toward her. Oh boy! Then, coolly, she took aim. She killed it, then successfully hauled it onto the bank. Lying nearby were several more spectacular alligators. Fascinating 'beauties' certainly, but dead.
The shopkeeper watched uncomfortably, fascinated but flabbergasted. Just then, the blonde flipped that alligator over, shouting out in annoyance:
'DAMN IT, this one isn't wearing any shoes either!'

=
Remember what became of Malaysian Airlines pilot, an agitator, a brooder or liar, a tactician who covertly planned a mystery, who flew a commercial aircraft so high that all passengers suffocated and died in terror.

LONG:
A wealthy attorney parked his brand new Porsche in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues.
As he was getting out, a truck came hurtling down the road and completely ripped off the driver's door.
A passing cop was near enough to witness the incident and drew in, lights flashing, behind the now door-less Porsche.
Before he was able to ask any questions, the attorney started screaming hysterically about his precious Porsche being ruined and that it would never be the same again.
The cop shook his head in amazement, "I don't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said. "You're so focused on your expensive possessions that you forget the truly important things in life."
"Why do you think that?" asked the lawyer.
The cop replied, "Well, don't you even realize that your left arm is missing? It was severed when the truck hit you!"
"OH, MY GOD!" screamed the lawyer... "My Rolex!"
=
After a few beers down at our popular local pub, The Crowing Cockerel, the conversation turned to who owned the most expensive watch. I showed mine first.
"Okay, you see this amazing beauty? It's a Rolex Oyster, worth a cool three grand," I announced cockily.
My pal Henry smiled and pointed to his wrist. "Oh, yes? See this? It's an elite white gold Patek Phillipe and I happily paid the best part of twenty-five grand for it a year ago."
This evoked several 'oohs' and 'ahs' of astonishment from the locals around us.
Then my other pal Gary rolled up his sleeve to show us his watch. "Gee, you guys, those prices are chicken feed," he snorted . "You see this? It cost me two-hundred-thousand."
Henry and I were stunned into silence. We stared at Gary's arm for a while longer then I said gently: "But Gary, that's only a basic Casio Quartz."
"Yeah, I know," he sighed. "My former wife bought it for me then found it in her sister's bed."
