|A woman gets cheated by her husband. Devastated, she doesn't know how to continue to live her life. She heard that there's a very wise monk who lives up in a mountain, and decided to go there to consult him.|
After few days of traveling, walking, climbing, she reaches the top and meets the wise monk. "I have spent my whole life with him, my youth was dedicated to support him, take care of him. And now he left me with a young woman. My life is stolen, and I'm left with nothing. I don't know what to do".
The monk gives her a cookie and asks her to eat it.
After she finishes eating, he ask, "Is the cookie delicious?"
"Yes," she answer.
"Do you want another one?"
The monk looks her in the eyes and said, "Do you see the problem now?"
The woman thinks for a while, and then slowly speak, "I guess human nature is greedy. You got one, then you want more, maybe a new one, bigger one. It's never enough. And nothing lasts forever, anything is impermanence. We should be aware and not disappointed for that."
The monk shakes his head, "No, I mean you are too fat, you should eat less."

When we were out of earshot of the freshmen, the woman asked the guide: "So what's the answer?"
The guide replied, "One."
|A girl showed interest in only marrying a lawyer.|
I asked the girl, "Why do you prefer a lawyer to marry?"
She said, "They bow their head while entering the room and again while going out. They say 'your honor' or 'my lord' before and after every word."
"They don't have any male ego; because, they wear a gown!"
"They go to a BAR where liquor is not served."
"More importantly, they never question the judgment at least before the person who gives it, whether they like it or not."
"What more does a wife require???"
|A police car pulls up in front of grandma Bessie's house, and grandpa Morris gets out.|

"Oy Morris," said grandma," You've been going to that park for over 30 years ! So how could you get lost ?"
Leaning close to grandma, so that the policeman couldn't hear. Morris whispered, "I wasn't lost.....I was just too tired to walk home."
