A man is getting into the shower as his wife finishes up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.

When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.”

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.

The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.

When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, “Who was that?”

“It was Bob, the next door neighbour,” she replies.

“Great,” the husband says, “Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

A man walks into a bar with a monkey. He asks the bartender to watch him while he steps into the men’s room. When he comes out, the bartender says, “That’s one weird monkey you got. He jumped up on the pool table and ate the cue ball!”

A few days go by and the man with the monkey comes back. The man comes out of the men’s room and the bartender says, “You really got a weird monkey. This time he jumped up on the bar, stuck a peanut up his backside, then pulled it out and ate it!”

“Yes,” said the man. “After that cue ball, now he always measures first.”
