    Smile A Good Joke

    In this time of uncertainty, we all could use a good laugh. Check out this story:
    Ole and Clarence

    Ole lived across River from Clarence who he didn't like at all. They all the time were yelling across the river at each other.

    Ole would yell to Clarence, "If I had a vay to cross dis river, I'd come over dere an beat you up good, yeah sure ya betcha by golly!"

    This went on for years. Finally the state built a bridge across the river right there by their houses.

    Ole's wife, Lena, says, "Now is you chance, Ole, vhy don't you go over dere and beat up dat Clarence like you said you vould?"

    Ole says, "OK, by yimmy I tink I vill do yust dat" Ole started for the bridge but he sees a sign on the bridge an he stops to read it, then he turns around and comes back home.

    Lena asked, "vhy did you come back?"

    Ole said, "Lena, I tink I change my mind 'bout beatin' up dat Clarence, you know, dey put a sign on da bridge dat says "Clarence is 13 ft. 6 in." You know, he don't look near dat big vhen I yell at him from across da river"
    I thought this joke "vas pretty darn goot."

    Ever heard of a truss bridge? Most of them have a clearance restriction. And if you should ever go to Madison County, I hear they have some bridges there that have clearances too.
