Deep Thoughts with Jack Handy
  • Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it\'s made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean? It\'s a mystery, and that\'s why so is mankind._____
  • To me, it\'s always a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?," you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks.“________________________________________
  • If you\'re a cowboy, and you\'re dragging a guy behind your horse, I bet it would really make you mad if you looked back and the guy was reading a magazine.__
  • One thing a computer can do that most humans can\'t is be sealed up in a cardboard box and sit in a warehouse.___________________________________
  • How come the dove gets to be the peace symbol? How about the pillow? It has more feathers than the dove, and it doesn\'t have that dangerous beak.________
  • When you go ice-skating, try not to swing your arms too much, because that really annoys me._____________________________________________________
  • If you\'re in a boxing match, try not to let the other guy\'s glove touch your lips, because you don\'t know where that glove has been.________________________
  • I hope that after I die, people will say of me: "That guy sure owed me a lot of money.\'\'
