Notes, Jokes, and Quotes of the Day – Thursday

Notes of the Day:

  • Iceland is so safe that parents routinely leave their babies alone to nap outside in their strollers while they run errands.
  • Male layer chicks don’t produce eggs nor do they have enough meat on their bodies for eating, so they are killed immediately by egg producers after hatching.
  • Jimmy Carter said that, if he became president, he would release all government UFO information to the public. Once elected, however, he decided not to due to “national security concerns.”
  • While filming the movie “Entebbe,” about a plane being hijacked, a plane was actually hijacked and landed at the airport. They filmed the real hostages being released and edited it into the movie.
  • Richard Nixon was an accomplished musician who could play the piano, accordion, violin, saxophone, and clarinet.

Jokes of the Day:

– A dentist told a mother, “I’m sorry madam, but I’ll have to charge you a $100 for pulling your boy’s tooth.” The mother exclaimed, “A $100! You said it was only $20!” “Yes,” replied the dentist, “but he yelled so loudly that he scared four other patients out of the office!”

– A man was driving and saw a truck stalled on the side of the highway that had ten penguins standing next to it. The man pulled over and asked the truck driver if he needed any help. The truck driver replied, “If you can take these penguins to the zoo while I wait for AAA that will be great!” The man agreed and the penguins hopped into the back of his car. Two hours later, the trucker was back on the road again and decided to check on the penguins. He showed up at the zoo and they weren’t there! He headed back into his truck and started driving around the town, looking for any sign of the penguins, the man, or his car. While driving past a movie theater, the truck driver spotted the guy walking out with the ten penguins. The truck driver yelled, “What are you doing? You were supposed to take them to the zoo!” The man replied, “I did and then I had some extra money so I took them to go see a movie.”

Bombers Win Again, Prepare for 4 Game Road Trip

Huntingburg (NNDC) – The Dubois County Bombers struck first on Tuesday night after plating one run in the bottom of the first.   The slim lead was short lived as the visiting Fulton Railroaders scored a pair of runs in the top of the second giving them a 2-1 lead.   Dubois County knotted up the game in the bottom of the third when Southridge graduate and Olney Central College product Payton Mattingly was hit by a pitch, driving in a run.

Both teams remained scoreless until the bottom of the seventh when Dubois County derailed the Railroaders with 5 Bombers crossing the plate giving the home team a 7-2 lead.   Dubois County added three more runs in the eighth inning to close out the game with a 10-2 victory.

Jaxson Blair earned the victory for the Bombers.  He pitched 2 1/3 innings, allowing no runs on three hits while striking out three.   Dubois County tallied 10 hits in the game.   Gavin Napier and Cooper Trinkle had 2 hits apiece to pace the Bombers.   With the win, Dubois County is now 22-13 on the season and only 1/2 of a game behind league leading Owensboro (22-12).

The Bombers hit the road for a 4 game road trip and will return back to League Stadium next Monday with a 2 game homestand to close out the regular season at home.    Dubois County returns to action on Thursday night as they travel to Paducah to face the Chiefs.
