    Chen Lee travelled by train from Dayton to Hamilton. In the same compartment, sitting opposite him, a GI was dozing.
    All of a sudden Chen Lee stood up, hit the window and squawked.
    The GI lifted up an eyelid and right away went on dozing.
    Ten minutes later the same game took place.
    And again every ten minutes.
    At the end the GI said: What are ya doing?
    Chen Lee: I DRIVE DRAGOON AWAY.
    The GI: There are no dragoons here in the States, poor chap.
    Chen Lee: IT PROVE IT WORK.

    (Translated in current American : It proves it works. You must know that Chen Lee wants to speak English just as he speaks Chinese , i.e. no declension, no conjugation, no article…. because he thinks Americans have to become used to their upcoming invaders’ language.)

    You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil has to be lead.

    It's a small world, but I'd still hate to have to paint it.

    A horse walked into a bar (pub). The bartender asked him, "Why the long face?"

    Rene Descartes was browsing over the menu at a restaurant when the server asked him, "Would you care for a drink before ordering?"
    "I think not," he replied.
    And *poof* - he disappeared.

    The restaurant menu stated "Breakfast Served Anytime." I told the waitress, "I'd like waffles during the Renaissance."

    I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

    What's another word for "thesaurus"?
