Ask Mongo
Dear Mongo: We're starving. What's for breakfast?

Mongo: Easy question! Have Cod & Eggs at the Minute Cafe. Substitute fresh fruit instead of hash browns.

joke of the day
Last night a Chinese guy came to my favorite bar.
I asked him if he knew Kung Fu or some other martial art.
He said, “Why do you ask me that? Is it just because I’m Chinese?!”
“No it’s because you’re drinking MY beer!“
