Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
The captain called the sergeant in.
“Sarge, I just got a telegram that Smith’s mother died yesterday. Better go tell him and send him in to see me.”
So the sergeant calls for his morning formation and lines up all the troops.
“Listen up, men,” says the sergeant. “Johnson report to personnel to sign some papers. The rest of you men report to the motor pool for maintenance. Oh, by the way, Smith, your mother died, report to the commander.”
Later that day the captain called the sergeant into his office.
“Hey, Sarge, that was a pretty cold way to inform Smith his mother died. Couldn’t you be a bit more tactful, next time?”
“Yes, sir,” answered the sergeant.
A few months later, the captain called the sergeant in again. “Sarge, I just got a telegram that James’ mother died. You’d better go tell him and send him in to see me. This time be more tactful.”
So the sergeant calls for his morning formation.
“Ok, men, fall in and listen up.”
“Everybody with a mother, take two steps forward.”
“Not so fast, James!”
