"Where is my Sunday paper?" The irate customer calling the newspaper office loundly demanded to know where her Sunday edition was.
"Madam" said the newspaper employee, "today is Saturday, the Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on Sunday"

The pharmacist walks into the store to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall. He asks the blonde clerk "What's with that guy over there by the wall?"
The blonde clerk responds: "He came in here this morning to get something for his cough, I couldn't find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxative".
The Pharmacist yells: "You idiot! You can't treat a cough with a laxative"
The blonde clerk responds, "Of course you can! Look at him, he's afraid to cough".

The pupil answered"You didn't ask me how the dictionary spelt it".

The case was dismissed for lack of testimony.
