Top Ten Signs You've Bought a Lemon of a Car

Never trust an atom. They make up everything.

Submitted by Jim Benson

10. Your tinted windows are also known as Hefty Garbage Bags. 9. The car reaches its optimum speed when going downhill. 8. The hi-tech stereo system often requires a new needle. 7. The rear-view mirror says, "Objects in Mirror Are Better Than This Piece of Junk." 6. The odometer on the dashboard is not as sophisticated as the everyday abacus. 5. Traffic Watch warns other drivers what highway you're taking.

Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?

4. The sticker on the windshield says, "Batteries Not Included." 3. You fill up the tank with Unleaded Coals. 2. You can only go to restaurants that offer Valet Pushing. 1. When you approach hitchhikers, they put their thumbs down. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...with

Then all of a sudden he turns around and jumps in the lake, his buddies apparently thinking he is going to retrieve his clubs. When he comes out of the water he doesn't have his clubs and begins to walk off the course again.

Larry is playing a round of golf with his buddies. On the sixth hole, a hole over water, he proceeds to flub nine balls into the water. Frustrated over his poor golfing ability, and about ready to hit somebody, he heaves his golf clubs into the water, and begins to walk off the course.

Hunting Trip Submitted by Maggie Joyce

Jimbo and Uncle Andy hired a pilot to fly them into the far north for some elk hunting. They were quite successful in their venture, and bagged six big bulls. The pilot came back as arranged to pick them up. They started loading their gear into the plane, including the six elk, but the pilot objected. He said, "The plane can take out only four of your elk. You will have to leave two behind." One of the hunters pushed forward, "Hey, last year our pilot let us take out six elk. It was the same model plane, same weather conditions, and everything. What's with this? We want you to allow us to fly out just like last year.

Reluctantly the pilot finally permitted them to put all six elk aboard and the men all climbed in with their gear. When they attempted to take off and fly out of the valley, the little plane could not make it. They crashed in the wilderness. Climbing out of the wreckage, Uncle Andy said to Jimbo, "Do you know where we are?" "I think so," replied Jimbo. "Yep! I think this (continued on next page)

An Engineer dies and goes to hell. He's hot and miserable, so he decides to take action. The A/C has been busted for a long time, so he fixes it. Things cool down quickly. The moving walkway motor jammed, so he unjams it. People can get from place to place more easily. The TV was grainy and unclear, so he fixes the connection to the Satellite dish and now they get hundreds of high def channels. One day, God decides to look down on Hell to see how his grand design is working out and notices that everyone is happy and enjoying umbrella drinks. He asks the Devil what's going on? The Devil replies, "Things are great down here since you sent us that engineer." "What? An engineer? I didn't send you one of those, that must have been a mistake. Send him back up right this minute." The Devil responds, "No way! We are going to keep our engineer. We like this guy." God demands, "If you don't send him to me immediately, I'll sue!" The Devil laughs. "Where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"

Alligator Shoes

My uncle laughed about my aunt's curio cabinet. And he knows I hate knick knack jokes.

Submitted by Thomas Hill

Uncle Andy was on vacation in the swamps of Louisiana. He really wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes to bring back for his wife but didn't want to pay the high prices the local stores were charging.

106K, Green, Auto., Alloy Wheels, AWD

After becoming very frustrated with the local shopkeepers, Uncle Andy shouted, "I'll just go out and catch my own alligator so I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!"

The shopkeeper replied, "Good luck! Maybe you'll luck out and catch yourself a big one!" Determined, Uncle Andy turned and headed for the swamps, set on catching himself an alligator. Later in the day, the shopkeeper is driving home, and he spots Uncle Andy standing waist deep in the water, rope in hand. Just then, he sees a huge 9 foot alligator swimming quickly toward him. He lunges, wraps himself around the beast and with a great deal of effort hauls it on to the swamp bank. Laying nearby were several more alligators all tied up. Completely amazed, (continued on next page)

After I had injured one of my shins for the umpteenth time, my doctor suggested I wear some sort of protection. Remembering the shin guards I wore when I played soccer over 60 years ago, I went to a local sporting goods store. I'm a petite, elderly woman, so when a young man came to help me, I said, "Don't laugh, but I'm looking for a pair of shin guards for soccer." "Okay," he said with a completely straight face. "What position do you play?" Uncle Andy’s Digest ...with

Still Waiting Submitted by Jimbo

After waiting more than an hour and a half for her date, Sarah decided she had been stood up. Exasperated, she changed from her dinner dress into pajamas and slippers, fixed some popcorn and hot chocolate, and resigned herself to an evening of TV. No sooner had she flopped down in front of the TV when the doorbell rang. Her dad went to the door, and there stood her date. He took one look at Sarah on the couch and gasped. "I'm two hours late and she's still not ready?"

Fun Pun Submitted by Ron Hood

A mother pig was walking through the barnyard one day with one of her piglets. Suddenly, a raccoon raced out from behind the barn and scared the living daylights out of the mother pig. The little hog laughed to see such sport and the sow jumped over the coon. If you can't laugh at yourself, you may be missing the joke of the century. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...with

Practical Marriage Submitted by Jimbo

A Pastor was called to a local nursing home to perform a wedding. An anxious old man met him at the door. The pastor sat down to counsel him. The Pastor asked several questions. "Do you love her?" The old man replied, "I guess." "Is she a good Christian woman?" "I don't know for sure," the old man answered. "Does she have lots of money?" asked the pastor.

"Tweet, tweet. Tweet, tweet." "It's only a bird in a tree," the guard mutters. And, last but not least, it is now Uncle Andy’s turn to escape. Now he has been watching the others make their escapes, and he likes their approach. So, he climbs the same tree, to get over the same wall, and meets the same guard. Meanwhile, Uncle Andy has been concentrating what's wrong with that picture? Ok, animal noises. Think animal noises. Of course, the guard hears him, and asks, "Who's there?" "Moooo. Moooo." But wait, there's more! All three escapees are recaptured, and taken, as targets, to the firing range as punishment for their jailbreak. Jimbo, as usual, goes first.

Intelligence Submitted by Thomas Hill

There was a blonde who found herself sitting next to a Lawyer on an airplane. The lawyer just kept bugging the blonde wanting her to play a game of intelligence. Finally, the lawyer offered her 10 to 1 odds, and said every time the blonde could not answer one of his questions, she owed him $5, but every time he could not answer hers, he'd give her $50.00. The lawyer figured he could not lose, and the blonde reluctantly accepted. The lawyer first asked, "What is the distance between the Earth and the nearest star?" Without saying a word the blonde handed him $5. then the blonde asked, "What goes up a hill with 3 legs and comes back down the hill with 4 legs?" Well, the lawyer looked puzzled. He took several hours, looking up everything he could on his laptop and even placing numerous air-to-ground phone calls trying to find the answer. Finally, angry and frustrated, he gave up and paid the blonde $50.00 The blonde put the $50 into her purse without comment, but the lawyer insisted, "What is the answer to your question?" Without saying a word, the blonde handed him $5. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...with

The detective was interviewing the man whose clothing shop had just been burglarized. "It's bad," said the proprietor, "but it's not as bad as it could have been if he'd robbed me yesterday."

Sarah Simpson, a native of Auburn and a 2010 graduate of St. Dom’s. She achieved her Associates degree from Central Maine Community College and then was accepted to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona, Florida. Sarah is working on finishing up her Bachelors degree. Sarah competed and was crowned, Ms. Petite America, in Hartford, CT last month. Her parents, Tim & Karen Simpson are very proud and Tim states, “Not only is Sarah pretty, she has the brains to back it up! It was great to see her crowned Ms. Petite America, but it’s even better to see her getting an education of a lifetime.” In this photo, Sarah is at the peak of Cadillac Mountain in Bar Harbor. We challenged her dad that if he submitted a photo of Sarah holding up Uncle Andy’s Digest we would publish it. We would have published it either way, but this photo is very cool.

Medical Condition

Always remember to proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Submitted by Jimbo

We were thoroughly confused. While transcribing medical audiotapes, Patty, my co-worker, came upon the following garbled diagnosis: "This man has pholenfrometry." Knowing nothing about that particular condition, Patty double checked with the doctor. After listening to the tape, he shook his head. "This man," he said, translating for her, "has fallen from a tree."
