~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
(Some Of) The Wit Of Terry Pratchett
"He blew the dust off the horn and put it to his lips, achieving a sound like the ghost of a refried bean."
"His mind wandered so far it came back with souvenirs."
"Brother Preptil, the master of the music, had described Brutha's voice as putting him in mind of a disappointed vulture arriving too late at the dead donkey."
"This was music that not only had escaped but had robbed a bank on the way out."
"In any normal society, he would have been considered more unglued than a used stamp in a downpour."
"They looked at one another in incomprehension, two minds driving the wrong way up a narrow street and waiting for the other man to reverse first."
"...he'd hammered the nails in and glued the strings to them. But this wasn't too much of a problem, because Crash himself had the musical talent of a blocked nostril."
"The other musicians around them were, it was true, quite bad. But that's all they were. They didn't have a drummer who missed the drums or a bass player with the same natural rhythm as a traffic accident."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
My friend's preparations for a visit from her children included a trip to the bank. Waiting in line at the teller's window, she lamented to the middle-aged man behind her, "My children are in their 20s, and I'm still giving them money. When does it end?"
"I'm not sure," the man replied while glancing uncomfortably at a paper in his hand, "but I'm not the one to ask. I'm here to deposit a check my mother gave me."

64-year-old Herzlinde Eissler had been admitted to the hospital in Mistelbach, Austria with stomach pains. Several days later she discharged herself from the hospital to find out why her family did not visit her over Christmas.
What she didn't know is that the hospital had a mix-up and told her family she had died.
Her son Leopold said, "I could not believe it when she walked in through the front door and the whole family were all sitting around dressed in black and planning the funeral."
"At least it explains why they could not find the body when we wanted to pay our last respects."
