Of course you're tired, you have a reason to be
BY JACK K. OVERMYER
President and Owner, The Sentinel

So, you say you're tired. 

Well, you ought to be. For a couple years you've been blaming it on lack of iron, poor blood, lack of vitamins, dieting and a dozen other maladies. 

But it ain't that. You're tired because of overwork.

The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.

There are 85 million in school, which leave 48 million to do the work.

Of this, there are 29 million employed by the federal government. This leaves 19 million to do the work.

Four million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the work.

Take from that total the 14,800,000 people who work for state and city government and that leaves 200,000 to do the work.

There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 12,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 11,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work.

You and one other poor soul.



A store that sells husbands has opened where a woman may go to choose a husband from among many men. The store is composed of six floors. The men increase in positive attributes as the shopper ascends the flights. 

There is, however, a catch. As you open the door to any floor you may choose a man from that floor, but if you go up a floor, you cannot go back down except to exit the building. 

So, a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband. 

On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs. 

The woman reads the sign and says to herself, "Well, that's better than my last boyfriend, but I wonder what's further up?" So up she goes. 

The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids. 

The woman remarks to herself, "That's great, but I wonder what's further up?" And up she goes again. 

The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking.

"Hmmm, lots better," she says. "But I wonder what's upstairs?" 

The fourth floor sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking and help with the housework. 

"Wow!" exclaims the woman, "very tempting. But, there must be more further up!" And again she heads up another flight. 

The fifth floor sign reads: Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak. 

"Oh, mercy me! But I cannot resist. Just think what must be awaiting me on the top floor?" So up to the sixth floor she goes. 

The sixth floor sign reads: 

Floor 6 - You are visitor 6,875,953,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.



Son: Dad, there is someone at the door collecting donations for a swimming pool.

Dad: Give him a glass of water.



Did you hear about the man who divorced his wife for using four letter words?

Find work!!



What does every woman call an intelligent, attractive, caring, loving and sensitive man? 

A dream.



A mother asked her little boy, "How did school go today?" 

"Fine," the little fellow replied. "We had a new teacher and she wanted to know if I had any brothers and I told her I was an only child." 

"What did the teacher say?" his mother asked. 

"Thank goodness."
