Gomer

The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so Gomer went in to try out for the job.

“Okay,” the sheriff drawled, “Gomer, what is 1 and 1?”

“11” he replied.

The sheriff thought to himself, “That’s not what I meant, but he’s right.”

“What two days of the week start with the letter ‘T’?”

“Today and tomorrow.”

The sheriff was again surprised that Gomer supplied a correct answer that he had never thought of himself.

“Now Gomer, listen carefully: Who killed Abraham Lincoln?”

Gomer looked a little surprised himself, then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, “I don’t know.”

“Well, why don’t you go home and work on that one for a while?”

So, Gomer wandered over to the barbershop where his pals were waiting to hear the results of the interview. Gomer was exultant. “It went great! First day on the job and I’m already working on a murder case!”

    With Gomer's ability to think outside the box he should have that case solved in no time πŸ™‚

      Maybe Ann, but I'm not convinced. πŸ™‚

    That Gomer is the greatest. Good thinking Gomer. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a fantastic week end.

    • January 10, 2015 9:13 am at 9:13 am

      Yep, he's something else indeed. You all have a fantastic weekend too, πŸ™‚

    I think Gomer is the type of policeman that crooks would love. Have a wonderful Saturday Sandee. See ya.

      There's not doubt about that Paul. The crooks do love him. πŸ™‚

    Another good one. Joke writing really is a skill that can't be taught, I'll bet. You either have it or you don't.

    • January 10, 2015 9:14 am at 9:14 am

      I agree Jean, you either have it or you don't. Some people are never funny and some don't even have to try to be funny. πŸ™‚

    There's a place for Gomer somewhere in the governmant.

    • January 10, 2015 9:15 am at 9:15 am

      Don't we have enough of them in government now? πŸ™‚

  10. January 10, 2015 7:03 am at 7:03 am

    LOL…I agree with Kismet!

    • January 10, 2015 9:15 am at 9:15 am

      Yep, I agree. πŸ™‚

  11. January 10, 2015 8:19 am at 8:19 am

    Good one, and yes, Kismet nailed it also.

    • January 10, 2015 9:15 am at 9:15 am

      Yes, Kismet nailed it. πŸ™‚

  12. January 10, 2015 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm

    so silly! Have a lovely weekend!

    • January 11, 2015 9:16 am at 9:16 am

      Sometimes I just feel silly Kathe. πŸ™‚

  13. January 10, 2015 1:39 pm at 1:39 pm

    Gomer is no Columbo. I'm with Kismet… work in government and not around me.

    • January 11, 2015 9:16 am at 9:16 am

      Most of my readers are on the same page. I like that. πŸ™‚

  14. January 10, 2015 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm

    Gomer might not be the right man for the job. πŸ˜‰ Have a fabulous weekend!

    • January 11, 2015 9:17 am at 9:17 am

      Gomer isn't the right man for the job. Probably not many jobs. πŸ™‚

  15. January 10, 2015 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm

    Heeheehee! At least he has confidence!

    • January 11, 2015 9:17 am at 9:17 am

      He does indeed. πŸ™‚

  16. January 10, 2015 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm

    Gomer just needs a little direction. He can already think outside of the box.

    • January 11, 2015 9:18 am at 9:18 am

      He needs a lot of direction. A lot. πŸ™‚

  17. January 10, 2015 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm

    I think I have met Gomer! Or was it Bubba?! Hahaha. Good one. He will figure it out.

    Have a great weekend in the boat. Big hugs, honey…

    • January 11, 2015 9:19 am at 9:19 am

      I know I've met him too and I love him just like you do. πŸ™‚

  18. January 11, 2015 11:49 am at 11:49 am

    And I'm sure that he'll figger it out in time to have his deputy Seymour PetRock figure out how to put a bullet in his pocket…

    • January 12, 2015 10:12 am at 10:12 am

      I'm guessing you're spot on. As usual. Hey to Seymour. πŸ™‚

  19. January 11, 2015 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm

    Good for Gomer!

    • January 12, 2015 10:12 am at 10:12 am

      Bless his heart. Bless his heart. πŸ™‚

  20. January 12, 2015 3:27 am at 3:27 am

    Who knows, maybe Gomer will come up with a new theory on this one. πŸ™‚

    • January 12, 2015 10:12 am at 10:12 am

      I really doubt it Rhonda, but one never knows about Gomer. πŸ™‚

  21. January 12, 2015 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm

    Hahaha!! Gomer is now working πŸ™‚

    • January 13, 2015 7:28 am at 7:28 am

      But for how long? That's the question. πŸ™‚

  22. January 12, 2015 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm

    Congratulations on getting the job, heheh πŸ˜›

    • January 13, 2015 7:29 am at 7:29 am

      He's a piece of work indeed. πŸ™‚
